“Let me start by saying the staff here is sub par. Not knowledgable and pretty well the same answer for every strain. They don't seem to have any real info on strain genetics or hybrid ratios. Half the time they have hybrids labeled as sativas. And what's is the point in having 100 strains if most aren't worth looking at. The extracts are really taking a turn for the worst as well. Prices are alright but it's harsh and budders fast. Don't even bother asking about hash. They really don't know anything about the hash they have other than "oh it's expensive cuz it melts" I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone really. Half the time the staff are in fowl moods and getting frustrated with the computers. Not very professional. Shame really. ”
You don't have to go there. Weird how so many do. Find another club if your not happy. Sorry our product didn't do it foe you now please move on and semi to be a common handle vancity 2015. We are a little maxed with members anyways and we don't need complainers when we are trying very hard thanks.
“The first time I stepped into Karuna I was pleasantly surprised. They have a wide variety of strains, and some kick-ass customer service. The budtenders are all knowledgable and easy to talk to. Karuna even has couches and a neat dab bar. I can't wait for the west 4th location to open up!”
“I've been a member here for over a year and while I like the staff and convenience I'm getting increasingly frustrated by the fluctuating quality of the edibles. Size differences, potency differences on same labelled items. New stock is not what previous stock was. They are also increasingly out of a lot of products. I know they are trying to open new locations and this is putting a strain on their resources but don't do it at the expense of losing members!”
“I have been a member at Karuna for almost 2 years now, and have had mixed experiences. I've come to know much of the staff there and they are all fabulous people who are fun to chat with. The dispensary is beautiful, professional on the outside and chill/fun on the inside. However, it has been very hit and miss with me as far as consistency and quality of product.
I am, above all else, a medical user and have very specific needs. There have been times where I've been given what I was told was an "indica dominant hybrid" which gave me completely adverse effect (I have severe anxiety and cannot handle much sativa at all), after which I checked on Leafly and it said the strain was a Sativa. This has happened to me on multiple occasions, and I have been misinformed as to the strength or effects of certain strains. It seems as though some of the staff give me recommendations based on their personal experiences rather than on facts about the strain itself. I love Karuna, but this is extremely problematic for me as I require consistency and as a medical user it is extremely important for me to know what I am buying.
However, I have consistently found the topical creams and edibles to be of high quality, and I've usually been told if they don't know exactly what's in them.
Overall, I've frequented this dispensary much less due to my medical needs, however I would still recommend this place for people who don't have as specific needs, or for recreational purposes.”
“My go to (currently) for concentrates. Big tip to the staff after smoking cigs out at the bank parking lot - wash your hands especially when giving me a bit of shatter to smell - all I smell is cig fingers!”
