I’ve only been in one other dispensary in Missouri besides Missouri Health & Wellness in Sedalia, and they were both pretty similar. Waiting room. Buzz you in. Bud room. Neither were palatial, but both were clean, neat, and were staffed with very nice people. And let’s be honest, do you really need all that money you’re paying going into superficial trappings? Given some of the places I’ve gone to buy cannabis in my day, MH&W is the fornicating Taj Mahal, comparatively… and at least they have a handy ATM. Maybe I should have suggested that to some of my weed dealers over the years.
I go to MH&W because it’s closer to me, but that won’t be true before long. I tend to be a loyal patron, and I’ve been very happy with my service there, so I don’t anticipate changing stores. The staff at MH&W are very friendly, from the cute receptionist in the front, to the “weedaristas” in the business end of the store. (I’m not sure how to refer to the folks who actually sells one their marijuana. Pot dealers seems to have a judgmental quality to it. Budtender? Herbalist? Green pharmacist?)
I was specific about the location of the dispensary because I went to Amsterdam almost ten years ago this March, so if that’s what you’re expecting, think again. The Missouri dispensaries just haven’t gotten up to speed in comparison to their Netherlander brethren. There’s not a huge variety (but that’s not their fault, and it’s pretty much the same everywhere in Missouri), and if you’re looking for wax or other concentrates, think again. I’m not sure anyone has those options available yet. So, you aren’t going to find a huge variety, but they have a good selection of what’s available, and at least it’s legal. Well, legal in the state on Missouri. The federal statutes are still a bit behind the times.
If I had any issue at all, it would be that they don’t have the best parking, but I’ve never had any trouble finding a spot. The other Missouri dispensary I used had a half an hour wait time just to get into the place. That’s never been a problem at MH&W. I would very definitely recommend Missouri Health and wellness to anyone.
