Emerald City Medicinal Reviews

  • “Location is kind of sketchy and the parking lot stinks but the bud is good for the price. Has killer deals on a regular basis but are hit or miss. Definitely on my regular rotation of shops when I'm looking for something cheap. ”

    Thanks for the review ToastyFyrewolf. Happy to see our service and quality are hitting the mark for you! I wish we could improve the parking situation! There is usually parking available on Almaden if you can't find parking in front of the store.

  • “Selection is pretty decent as they do have a lot of choices for every type of smokeable, edible, and topicals at varying price ranges and I appreciate that they hand roll their pre rolls with all bud. There are some issues though that can't be overlooked. It seems like this shop is trying to make a name as the place to buy cheap (and I mean cheap in every sense of the word) weed. Their "B buds" strains are pretty abysmal to look at. It looks like bud that was horribly mistreated which is why they are selling it for such a crazy low price. For some it may be considered a bargain, but for anyone with a concern for quality will want to pass up even looking at the B buds. They can't really compete when it comes to top shelf buds, but they have some really good $5/gram strains quite often. For this reason I have given them a 3/5 on Quality. The service has always been the best thing about this shop. Its not usually very busy so they are almost always willing to take the extra time to engage in genuine conversation with you, which is rare. It is a refreshing break from the "see em and sell em" approach of most salespeople these days. I give them a 5/5 on service. The physical condition of the building both outside and in is the biggest problem with the experience you get walking into this shop. During the summer there was a broken air conditioner that would consistently drip on people as they entered and exited the store. I almost turned around and walked away right then and there. Being greeted by stale condensation from an old ac unit on top of your head is not a good way to start. Honestly this place needed to be gutted, cleaned, and remodeled. It would be excusable for an industrial workplace, but not for a retail location with customer. For this reason I am giving them a 1/5 on Atmosphere. Overall it is a place that would be a good stop for cooking weed and if you plan your visits right you can actually get some really good prices on concentrate and cartridges. Just don't walk in with your connoisseur hat on or you will be disjointed.”

    Hi ChronicDuck. Thank you for your review. We are always interested in how we can improve our customer experience. We do like to carry a wide range of flower from B-bud to Top Tier quality to fit every customers budget and needs. We are happy to hear you are getting good service! The AC was fixed over the summer - and we will be sure to check that before we run it again next summer. (We didn't like it either.) We are also hoping for a "facelift" in the very near future.

  • “Got lured in by "$89 ounces", all 5 selections were shitty outdoor. I asked to see the next price tier ounce. He tells me it's $140!!! Wtf where are we? That's way too big of a gap there. So watch out, there is a reason this business is in a tiny armpit of a strip mall instead a less sketchy location. Shop guy was cool though. ”

    Thank you for your input, Billpaxton. We are trying to offer a wide selection of flower to meet every customers needs. If we can find a way to close the gap for you, we will definitely do so. Very happy to hear you did receive good service.

  • “my first observation is that they have great deals on high end concentrates. the bud tender was also friendly and was knowledgeable and made a recommendation I tried and agreed with.”

    Hi tripplane - thank you for your review. We are happy you were happy with the deals and service you received! Hope to see you again soon.

  • “They're nice. Prices are competitive but the herb isn't worth it. I've never gotten anything there that was very good. I'm mostly fed up with their LEAFY nugs!! Man, it is honestly the worst trimmed stuff I've ever seen. and it feels like a rip off. I'm paying by the weight and if most of it's leaf then that's not a deal. I really wanted to like them. ”

    We really appreciate the amazing review and for recommending us to others. We search high and low to make sure we have a choice for every budget and try hard to make sure the quality of our flower, service, and standards stay consistent. Means the world to us that you choose us!

  • “This place is nice, and they have friendly staff. Though the last few times I have been there, the weed has been pretty crappy quality with about 50% leaf. Leaf tastes like wet dog and is just.. gross. Not what I paid for. This was with both the Purple Train Wreck and Ogre strains. I honestly think I'm going to start buying elsewhere so I'm not buying leaf.”

    First, thank you for letting us know the staff is doing well. Regarding the flower - we apologize if you you got something less than your expectations. We do work hard to ensure that even our budget strains are well represented and consistent. Occasionally the lower tiered products are machined trimmed and when we reach the end of the bag there is a bit more leaf. We always value our customers first and would appreciate another shot at making your experience no less 100%. Please contact us if you are willing to let us have another go, and again, thank you for the honesty.

  • “Sooooooo amazing!!!! Love the atmosphere, very helpful and great prices and product. Love it.”
