“one of the first dispensaries to open in the old 'hood, and one of the first that i visited.
the first dispensary i took my mother to when she received her red card.
they take credit cards (i would learn later that this is the exception, not the rule).
-smart looking waiting area.
-personal service stations and budtenders
-all product displayed in your own dedicated 3x3 case
-strains are marked with potential effects (stress, depression, anxiety, creativity, etc.), so you don't have to trust the memory recall of a glazed budtender (which there were none).
-well lit and professional, but not coldly sterile and unwelcoming
-well known strains, and some grown In House (seriously, right next door)
-most strains can be purchased by the gram, in case you'd like to do a "flight"
-market pricing across the board
-did i mention THEY TAKE CREDIT CARDS?
-the budtender recommended 'mother's milk' for my mother's migraines. seriously, who recommends 'mother's milk' for anything beyond a hangnail?
-Lightshade knows they've got a good thing going, so their specials are few and far between.
-it's across the street from the police station, so if you're skittish, stick with colfax.”
