    Thank you so much we try to be as knowledgeable as possible. Our shop is about 98% done so definitely come in soon to see the changes. Don't forget to bring in a friend so you can get a free gram.

  • “Where to start, this place is amazballs. I got a free gram as a new patient. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, they recommend a few strains for me and so far they we dead on. They only offer flower but wow hands down some of the best bud I have smoked in the state. I recommend the Private Stash Blue Cheese, Blueberry Pancakes, and the sour diesel all 3 are fantastic. They were doing a remodel so the place was a little disorganized but that didn't slow them down at all can't wait to be back.”

    Wow thanks for the great review. Those are definitely some of our most popular strains, we love them too. Our remodel is about 98% complete so definitely come back in and check us out.

  • “They always have a great selection here and they rotate strains out regularly. I stop in once every couple of weeks and the staff is incredibly nice and so happy to talk to you about their favorites or give recommendations . Their menu ranges so even for those on a tighter budget, they can still have access to top quality medicine.”

    Thank you for noticing, we do try to work with the best possible caregivers in this area. This allows us to bring not only the best medication, but a fantastic selection as well. We hope to see you again soon.

  • “I absolutely LOVE this shop. Every time I walk in I'm welcomed by my first name and a smile. Everyone that works here is very knowledgeable about the product and seems to enjoy their job. I would recommend this despensory to anyone. They always have a range of med's from the 9$/G to their top-shelf 20$/G "and the top-shelf is always amazing!"”

    We like to keep the "Cheers" atmospher around here. We pride ourselves on knowing our customers so we can continue to suggest the best treatment during our consultations. Thanks for the review and see you soon.

  • “Very helpful and friendly staff! I've been to my fair share of dispensaries and this one is for sure my favorite. Always suggest good strains and they're sure to make you feel welcome when you come in. Super knowledgeable about all of their strains and any missing strains are easily replaced with something in shop.”

  • “After waiting nearly 4 years, we finally have a dispensary in the Kalamazoo/Portage area... and it's wonderful! In fact, I would say Lake Effect is the preeminent medical dispensary in the whole of Southwest Michigan. While they limit their stock to bud, the wide variety of strains is unparalleled for the region (and they have a nifty iPad you can order from if that's up your alley). All of the products are thoroughly tested and described on placards in great detail (THC content, cannabinoids, effects, etc.). The staff is friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and display genuine enthusiasm in their work. The best thing, however, is their prices... With grams ranging from $9-$20, they remain competitive on a statewide level in terms of price (i.e., no regional markups). I am delighted with this dispensary and hope they continue to operate unfettered by the City of Portage. They provide important, much needed care for patients in the area- who no longer have to drive over an hour away- and appear to be an upstanding member of the local business community.”

    Thank you for the great review, we are excited to be in the Portage area too. We are so happy that we found a community that wants to put patient needs first. See you soon.

  • “All around great shop! Unsurpassed customer service. Clean, safe feeling. A prior review mentioned the need for "special incentives" for repeat customers, and I tend to agree. To be fair though, while there I noticed $18 g. on sale for $12 g. and I received a free gram as a new customer. By the way, get a $20 g. when taking advantage of this special. Personally I'd like to see some Jack dandy "shop keef" or even some $100 "shop medical shake" ounces available for when the funds run low. When I compare the top shops in Detroit and Lansing to this one, it easily holds its own. Because of gray areas in the local ordinances and State law, the selection is strictly flowers. But they are some damn good flowers from seemingly damn good people!”

    Awesome review! We never put anything on the shelf unless it has been tested, we want to make sure you know everything about the medication and we are happy to hear that it's worth it! Thanks again, we hope to see you and some friends here soon!

  • “Great location. Friendly staff. A decent selection of meds for a variety of ailments. They do not sell wax or oils, but this is because the city isn't properly educated on the topic.”

    Unfortunately, that is correct! We are focusing on medicinal marihuana only until things are further clear and legal within the state. With us focusing so much on medicinal marihuana, we are happy to hear our shelf is a decent selection! Thanks for taking the time to review.
