“First off, the quality : Being new to this kind of thing, and only smoking about 5 times, I can't be trusted to know what "good quality" is. I do however know that what I bought here (GG4) got me high as a kite in a single large milky hit off of a rather large bubbler. I also know how I feel with low quality bud, so I give it 4/5 for the quality, I may be wrong, but at this point it is the best bud I've ever seen or used.
Secondly, the service : The budtenders knew what they were talking about, and were very helpful to a newcomer, they did rush things rather quickly, and as a first time buyer and a less than moderate user I was very lost and confused as to a lot of the nuance in purchases. I asked about a strain that my friend said would be good, and they said they did not have any, but brought out 3 jars with different buds. They told me the names, opened the jars and just expected me to do something. As I smoke tobacco from pipes and cigars I did what I'd normally do which is only smell but not shove my nose in the jar, I still expect this is right, but I didn't know if touching the bud was a no no and still don't. They didn't explain what type of high each would offer, or ask what I was looking for either medically or recreationally. It wasn't "bad" service, but it certainly wasn't "great" service either.
And finally, the atmosphere : Let's just say I wish I could give it less than one star in this regard. For one, I was greeted by an armed guard and a barbed wire fence (I assume to protect their plants and storehouse but who knows) which was a bit offputting. The guard was a nice guy though, as I completely walked past the entrance door and he pointed me in the right direction. I was greeted inside by one person behind the counter on the phone trying to talk to the phone and me at the same time. My ID was scanned, I assume documented with how long it took, and I was told I'd need to wait 15 minutes. It was packed in this opening room, and only 2 seats were available in the far back area. There's little to do while waiting, no magazines that I could find, there was a fish tank to look at but has a do not enter area on one side, and seating on the other, and I believe a glass case of pieces and other such objects at the counter, but so many people enter that it's rude to stand or crouch in front of the door like that. After waiting over 30 minutes I was told to go back to the next room where things were rushed along, so as to allow more people to get what they came for. Even if the service and the quality was 5/5, the atmosphere kills this place, and with such a large plot of land that this is located on, I would recommend they invest in expanding their store to be more inviting and possibly get more budtenders to move things along more quickly.
I don't "recommend" this place at the current time, but living out on the Western Slope, there's little other option unless you want to spend a lot in gas just for this. I'll probably end up going back as they have some strains I enjoy, and it's more convenient than going anywhere else at this time, but if I had an option, I'd probably pass this place up in the future unless something changes drastically.”
