So I notice that almost all the reviews have absolutely nothing to do with the actual product... Look, their herb is dry and old. According to the packaging, they're selling weed in November that was packaged in July and August...so just think what quality of weed people are smoking with their pre-rolls! I emailed this store over 24 hours ago (no response, and the 24 hour standard is their own benchmark which is stated whenever someone calls and gets their answering machine) I left a review on Google and still no reply .... It also seems like their comms person will only engage with comments that are superficial and positive, but the negative reviews never seem to get any follow-up... At the end of the day, this store does not sell quality product and given the kind of business they are in, sub standard product can hurt people and affect their health. Any bud, no matter how well it's grown, could last 6 months to a year. After 6 months it's in danger of mould. Plus, after 6 months, the effects of the bud decreases over time. Nobody there will tell you this, so I will tell it.. What are the signs of unfresh and bad herb? Well, herb is supposed to be green. Not light green. Not brown. Those colors are classic signs of old herb...It's supposed to feel a little sticky. It's not supposed to crumble between your fingers when 0.1g of pressure is applied to the bud... Also, mouldy weed can have signs that can be smelt and seen. Mouldy weed will have dark black spots or white webbing around the bud. Also, check the stems. If the base is brown or blackening, think again... The smell will have a scent of urine or body sweat. Unfortunately, that's when the herb is dangerous....before it gets there you will need a microscope to tell if there's mould developing....so there you go...that's why 6 month old weed doesn't make money in the streets and that's why people shouldn't smoke it... Also, no weed should be giving you allergic reactions before or after smoking. So, no watery eyes, no runny nose, no sneezing or difficulty breathing. If your hands or lips are itchy, throw it out. And since you can't verify the quality of herb you're getting, I would suggest to stay the hell away from pre-rolls. This store seems to pride itself on quality, but if their product is sub standard and their response is equally slow, just think about how much they care about their customers... And this was my second visit.... The first time, the rep I had was rude. When I asked for the price difference between a 3.5 and 7, the rep says: "well, if you do the math..." (apparently there's some street dealers charging tax, so take that however) and then twice (twice!) I would settle the sale only for them to tell me it's no longer in stock...so I took my money and left.... At the end of the day, do not shop here and do not waste your money. There are already reports of bad quality herb causing real harm in people. This store had the opportunity to do better, but it chose not to because it would rather depend on people's ignorance of the herb rather than providing people with a real experience. My suggestion is to write and complain to the Ontario minister of health to get these people to either sell proper product or shut them down.
Great staff Great prices Great products Great location Love this place
Love the set up
Good spot would recommend
The staff is great and such a welcoming atmosphere. Great displays with tablets to get you all the info you’re looking for. Good mix of product too!
Very friendly staff, I walked in did nkt meed a menu simply asked for a high tch recommendation the server even offered to mix between indica and sativa. I was served and out with in 5 minutes. 5 stars all day.
I love the relaxed atmosphere and the service is absolutely fantastic. My favourite place by far.
Great to read, we'll be sure to share with the team. Thanks for this.
4 stars on quality is only because government weed can be pretty dry sometimes. HOWEVER, just ask the staff here which is “best” and theyre more than happy to point you in the right direction. Store itself is clean and bright and staff are extremely inviting and helpful. They dont even mind telling you they dont have the product youre looking for and recommending another shop on days theyre low on stock. From my understanding they sell out in about 4 days every week so best is to get there on a thursday or friday for the good stuff. Hopefully the Ontario Government can fix these issues soon. Ive attended all the Ottawa shops and several in Toronto and ive yet to experience anything like HOBO. Also, i LOVE the name! People need to do their research before knocking what they dont know.
Appreciate this, thanks.
It’s ok...the store was clean and legit but my quarter of blueberry Kush was way to dry (no two way humidity control pack)...very harsh smoke so probably won’t be back
Next time you're in ask for a boveda pack, should help. LP's have assured us the dryness won't affect the quality.
Rad people, great place! Definitely somewhere to check out.
Love this, thanks friend.
