NETA - Brookline Reviews

  • “I've visited NETA is Brookline a few times now. Easy access from MBTA Green Line and I had no problem parking on Boylston Street when the NETA lot was full. Very friendly knowledgeable staff. The sativa and hybrid flower I've purchased all very very good, but the indica strains (Master Kush, Walker..) were not what I expected (understanding that everyone has a different experience with any given strain), I have had very good experiences with other indicas so I was perplexed. Purchasing at the counter resulted in me spending twice as much as intended on both visits - yeah, my bad, but next time I'll do the express instead of going to the counter to avoid getting overwhelmed by all the choices. Amazing space!!!”

  • “I am so tired of the same strains here and the same old, same old. HERE SOME ADVICE: since Jack Frost sells out in a day, have you thought about growing more? Please stop using plastic bins to store all your flower and use glass Jars like a big kid....throw a humidifier packet in there as well because your flower needs it. Offer delivery or express pick up. Offer sales or rewards points. Jack frost is the only reason i go back to this dispensary....higher quality vape cartridges, flower, and faster service”

    Hi blcklb420, We hear your frustration. NETA offers free consultations - we would be happy to sit with you to go over your specific needs and what effects for which you are looking. We would be happy to suggest several strains that have worked for other patients and may work for you when Jack Frost is unavailable. We are confident we can help you find alternatives within our rotation of 30+ strains of flower. Our storage room is humidity controlled and we utilize Boveda humidfying packets in each flower bin which control product moisture in both directions while on the floor. For our purposes, the plastic bins are the best choice and any loss of moisture is very minimal. We have listened to our patients and will be offering an express pickup service through our Reserve Ahead app. We have recently started patient testing and expect to see this go dispensary-wide in just a few weeks. With this app you are able to order ahead of your visit and simply pick up when you arrive. Ask us about this great new tool on your next visit. We often hold sales and specials, advertising on our Facebook and Twitter pages as well as on our website - feel free to check our online menu at www.netacare.org for up-to-date information. We also have store-specific sales you can find out about by calling the dispensary before a visit. We hope you will take advantage of these suggestions and look forward to seeing you again.

  • “Cool location I like the old bank feel not over crowded. The buds are OK kinda hit or miss I guess. I got 4 different strains maybe 2 were enjoyable. 2 burned clean and 2 didn’t also very weak terps and thc. They show test for 25+ but dosent feel like that when you smoke it. I would come back if they got some new good stains on shelf. Maybe store cannabis in glass instead of plastic bins”

    Hi terps713 - We appreciate your taking the time to give us this feedback. As per DPH regulations, all flower is tested by an outside lab with the test results appearing on the label we place on packaging, reflecting the actual breakdown of cannabinoids in the specific batch. Our storage room is humidity controlled and we utilize Boveda humidfying packets in each flower bin which control product moisture in both directions while on the floor. For our purposes, the plastic bins are the best choice and any loss of terpenes is very minimal. That being said, we want to ensure that you are happy with your purchases at NETA and, to that end, we offer a 100% guarantee. If you do not feel the flower you purchased lived up to your expectations, we would be happy to have you bring back the remainder of the flower for exchange or credit.

  • “Amazing products, atmosphere, service, and experience. My advisor Nancy was so incredibly helpful--and patient--and is just a lovely person. Such a gorgeous facility, too. I ended up purchasing 3.5g CBD-rich Sour Tsunami x Cataract Kush flower, 3.5g Bruce Banner flower, 1g Jack Frost flower, a variety pack of 5 pre-rolls (Tangerine Haze, Grape Stomper, Flo OG, Walker Kush, and Master Kush), a 1:1 CBD:THC Rempen Slim, and a hybrid dark chocolate dose bar. All of the products have been fantastic, perhaps with the exception of the Rempen Slim, which is good not great, but I look forward to purchasing on my next visit the Apex One (just released). The CBD-rich flower is giving me tons of relief and energy. Looking forward to my next visit, and thanks again, Nancy!”

    Hi BostonStoned978 - Thank you for visiting NETA! We are happy to hear your positive thoughts on our strain selection and thank you for your feedback. We do keep track of pricing across the state to ensure that we stay competitive with other local dispensaries. In regards to parking, we understand the difficulty that comes with frequenting the metro-west area, this is why we employ a full-time parking attendant and a full-time police officer to assist the flow in and out of our parking lot. There are a number of off-site parking garages close by, as well as on-street parking. We are just a short walk from the Green Line Brookline Village stop. We hope this information helps and look forward to your next visit!

  • “Staff was friendly, but overly familiar. Deeply urban location, so not convenient for car travelers. Sports a boutique-like atmosphere, which I find disconcerting as a medical user. Also disconcerting is the practice of waving flower aroma in your face for each variety. The whole experience felt like it was more about promoting pot culture than serving people with medical conditions. Selection was also poor in Indica. One visit will be all for me.”

    Quackmeister, we are sorry to hear that your visit was a frustrating one. We train our Patient Service Associates to help create an individualized, safe, and non-judgemental environment where patients of varying needs can feel comfortable in seeking out the best therapies for their ailments. For those who prefer a quieter visit we have several solutions: (1) our Express Counter allows patients to fill out an order form, hand it to staff, then have a seat while the order is filled; (2) our "Is There a Line" widget (available online at www.netacare.org) gives current wait-times to help you plan your visit; and (3) our locations tend to be less busy between Monday and Wednesday, making for a quieter atmosphere. We understand that travel to an urban area can be difficult. It is this reason that we employ a full-time parking attendant and full-time police officer to help the flow in and out of our on-site parking lot. Off-site, there are a number of parking garages very close by, on-street parking is usually available, and we are located a short walk from the Green Line Brookline Village stop. In regards to the way we display our flower, the scent of the flower is as important as the look of the bud and the variety of strain. Terpenes contained within the flower may smell wonderful to one patient and unpleasant to another. Scents such as piney, sweet, and citrus have different effects associated with them and we have found that allowing patients a chance to take in the scent can lead to better choices on their part as far as which strains will work best for them. Feel free to ask us about the Entourage Effect if you do decide to visit again.
