“OK ~ my first review and definitely overdue. I've been a card carrier for 3+ years, and all with this dispensary. I've been part of their growth, as well as my own journey of wading through all the "stuff" about the medical, marijuana world. To date it's all been good thanks to Annatoli, the owner, and his staff!
Throughout my "learning curve" they have always been terrific to work with, even when things were really busy! I just sat and read the Culture magazines they always have in the lobby ~ great learning tools for this business as well. Early on I visited quite a few other dispensaries just so I could have something to make a real, solid comparison with. And each time I left a dispensary I knew walking out their door that overall Green Cross was the better dispensary, and in the end completely where I belonged.
So, if you want exceptional product; great service which means EVEN if they don't have the right answer they'll "get it," and a sense of them having your best interest at heart every, single, time ~ then I'm confident you'll want to make them your permanent dispensary!
Nothing really great happens overnight, especially something like the legalization of MMJ "world."
So, for me taking the approach of growing with one dispensary just felt and continues to feel right ~ perhaps it will for you too.
No one gets into business to fail intentionally, especially this unique business which relies heavily on your personal experience. And definitely not by NOT servicing its patrons in the very, best way they can. It's hard work running a business, and Annatoli and his staff make that seem so easy everytime I've been there. Their enthusiasm is clearly evident, and their willingness to help you feel great about your experience has always clear to me. Never have I walked out of there feeling any other way. From "what to do" if you want to get a medical card; providing all the paperwork and a doctor, etc, etc.
So, perhaps you should consider the next time, or if it's your first time to arrive "prepared." Write your questions down ~ they learn too, and are more confident when servicing you then and in the future because a prepared person is a serious person. This is all the stuff necessary for building a solid, relationship with a dispensary.
And for me I want to be with a dispensary that grows with the times; knows the laws or where to get the right information; shares their knowledge willingly and enthusiastically; high pride in their product; and most obvious for me ~ clearly demonstrates ALL of that every time I've been there! I don't know about you but that pretty much sums it all up for a great partnership.
Thanks everyone at Green Cross for being the best :-) I'm here for the long haul you can count on it!”
