“Day and Time of Visit: Friday late afternoon
Wait Time: 5-10 minutes
Assisted By: Amanda
Additional Notes: I had two outstanding experiences with their location on 6th which is what inspired me to try another Lightshade.
Staff Rating: 4.00
Staff Description: This team didn't seem as efficient as the staff on 6th Avenue. The check in process was 10 minutes with no one else waiting and only one other car in the lot. All members of the staff were very personable. Amanda was helpful during our interaction and was able to ring us up quickly with no issues.
Selection Rating: 3.00
Selection: This was by far the most disappointing aspect of this location. I really don't like when dispensaries have different menus for medical and rec customers - which this location does. It would not be as much of a problem, but they had 5 strains to choose from (one on 6th had around 10 choices). They had a good amount of edibles and concentrates, but they should have at least 10 varieties of flowers for all customers.
Quality Rating: 4.00
Quality Description: I feel a 4.00 is a generous rating. One of the buds on display looked and smelled better than what we were actually given. I also found a seed in the first piece I broke apart. The other two strains, specifically ones cultivated by Lightshade, had an excessive amount of leaves and stems. The taste and high were good on all, but the blends of fraiche were far from mind blowing and it seems unlikely I would return for more.
Cleanliness Rating: 5.00
Cleanliness Description: The store was clean and free of clutter. The display cases were clean and well organized. The waiting room was larger than most I've seen which was really cool.
Overall Rating: 4.00
Overall Description: This Lightshade fell a little short of my expectations after visiting the one on 6th. The biggest draw back was the lack of flowers. Additionally, the location on Sheridan isn't in a great area and parking could have been better. I am uncertain if I will return to this location, but I may consider giving them another shot.
