“This shop has *probably* the best products in Hood River, however they have a strange and inconsistent procedure that really bothered me.
I don't know if this is a Hood River County/City regulation, but according to Gorge Greenery you cannot leave their store without your product in a bag.
Okay, fair enough.
And the bag they give you is this pretty nice zipper bag with a lock, clearly designed to be child/tamper proof.
But, the first time I visited and this was explained to me, I was charged for that bag without being notified. Admittedly, it was an additional $1 charge. But it's not a very good business practice to simply add a charge without first notifying the customer of the additional charge right? Of course, I was told that if I brought back the bag and product jar that they would "start a punch card for me." Uh, thanks...
Yet, I went back a second time (without the first bag I was given), however this time they didn't charge me for the bag, but still insisted that they "have" to give me the special bag.
And then the third and last time I visited, they didn't give me a bag at all, and made no mention of it.
I've visited other stores in Hood River, and other Oregon stores as well, not sure why they do this, but insisting that the bag is necessary because of "regulations", and then charging for it without notifying the customer, and the subsequent inconsistency of that policy is just weird.”
We are sorry for the confusion and lack of communication on the exit bag . With the state regulations changing all marijuana products must leave in an child resistant container and if it has multiple servings it must be a container that can be resealed and still be child resistant. Depending on the item you purchased is depending if you need the bag or not. Some vendors bring us product in child resistant packaging and others do not so we supplement with the reusable exit bag. If the staff did not charge you for the bag the second time it was because they had forgotten. We appreciate the feedback and appreciate you working with us through the confusing state regulation changes.
The benefit to the bag is you can use at any dispensary in Oregon, CO and Nevada which are other states that require this kind of package. Hope you are able to stop in and we are able to explain any packaging or regulation questions you have.
“A while back this was the first dispensary I had gone to. Now that I have been to quite a few I can say that this will probably always be my favorite for many reasons. High quality flower, knowledgable staff and the setup/decor is beautiful. If you haven't been here you are for sure missing out!”
“!!!THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO!!!
Located right off of I-84 in Hood River, this is by far the premier cannabis destination for great prices, unmatched customer service, expert knowledge of all their superior product choices! First class packaging, reusable/locking exit bags and a great rewards program!
I drive more than an hour to get here from Sandy and it's worth it EVERY time!
Do yourself the biggest favor you can, take a beautiful, scenic drive up the gorge and pay this store a visit! You'll be so happy that you did!!! ”
“Okay, this is only the 2nd dispensary I've been to but it will certainly be one that I will always remember. The staff, extremely welcoming and educated. The store, perfectly professional and quaint. You cannot drive through this town without visiting them and experiencing the laid-back Oregonian culture this store provides. Seriously, go out of your way to visit them. ”
