“First timer and this is the only dispensary near me but it's awesome. Feels like walking into an Apple Store or something. People are great and helpful and have a full variety of products that have been top notch so far. Glad you guys are here!”
“I've been shopping at both locations for over a year. The extra strength lotion I can't be without-helps with pain, headaches, even stomach aches when used topically. the new CBD chews are PERFECTION, really helped me on severe pain days.”
“After going to NETA for over a year I've decided to go back to a Caregiver. The thrill of going into an establishment and purchasing weed is over, for me anyway. I think I got lost in the moment of being able to do such a thing. As I got brought back to reality I realized the quality of your flower is not worth the prices you are setting. I know, I know. You're staying competitive. However you need to price according to quality. Your buds are not all equal. Plenty of people have mentioned this, yet you continue to do nothing. It seems like you pray on the folks who are new to cannabis. The people who know of real quality are going elsewhere. Your staff is amazing as are you locations, but the quality of the product does not meet the price. I have no problem spending 350 per ounce on AAA buds but....anyway. Thank you for providing a service which is much needed. I do hope to return in the future.”
Thank you for taking time to review NETA. We are sorry to lose you and hope you do return. We feel that NETA’s pricing is competitive in the Massachusetts regulated marketplace. The key word there for patients to understand is "regulated." Unlike the black market, all of NETA's product are rigorously (and expensively) tested to ensure that patients are receiving medicinal quality therapies. Add to that license fees, rent, community host fees, compliance services, etc., etc, and it should become clear why the black market is cheaper. As for the quality of our product, our cultivation team is always working on improving the quality of our flower – if you have any specific feedback on issues with our flower quality, we are all ears. Please feel free to let us know what you would like to see improved about this by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Ive been here a ton of times mainly because its the only dispensary within 100 miles of me, and I am extremely disappointed. First off you cant even get really what you want because they never have enough. I asked if prices were going to drop with recreational coming into play and they said they weren't (which is bullshit). To be honest I find better quality and better variety on the street than what I get from them, and the streets cheaper too. Service is great, everyone seems to be happy, but for what you want to be step your damn game up.”
Hi there- Thanks for you compliments on NETA's service. Our team members take their jobs seriously and have a passion to serve patients.
As we write this response, both of our locations have 10 strains on their menus, and 90+ infused product selections that includes nearly a dozen concentrates. We are unaware of any street dealers who offer over 100 tested, clean products for provisioning in a safe, friendly environment. Our team strives daily to provide our patients with a broad range of cannabinoid profiles in our flower and we are ever-increasing our production capacity with the intention to eventually remove any purchase limits outside of those mandated by the state.
Regarding pricing: There is no immediate path in place at the state level for the retail sale of recreational marijuana and the impacts of these new laws will not be understood for quite some time. We do closely monitor other RMDs for prices and make sure to offer competitive pricing. However, black market prices will never be fair benchmarks as regulated business such as ours pay taxes, employee benefits, license fees, community service agreement fees, testing fees, etc, etc. Ultimately, we hope that our service, safety, and breadth of menu are reasons enough to earn patients' loyalty.
“I've been to NETA enough times now that I've tried a range of their products and strains. The quality of the customer service is superb, and the staff are always helpful and friendly. Sometimes it gets busy, but it's always worth the wait. So far I've tried several strains of flower, the dose bars and lozenges, and their shatter, and everything has exceeded my expectations. Yes, the flower is pricier, but I think it's worth it for a superior product. Also, concentrate prices are pretty reasonable. Thanks NETA, I'll be back.”
“This was stop #6 of the Original 8 tour and my second NETA location. It re-affirms my belief that NETA is the state-wide leader in the early stages of Massachusetts' medicinal (and soon recreational) marijuana business.
This is a buttoned up operation, plenty of staff, organized set up and quality product.
Easy access off Route 91 with ample parking and a very chill space that includes showroom for vaping products from entry-level to expert user.
The one bummer is that NETA has had to institute a 1/4 oz flower limit for the time being. (As of 11/12-16) Seems demand is outpacing supply!! No surprise there.
Still, good strain diversity across platforms (bud, vape, shatter, edibles, kief, etc) and super helpful budtenders. Kate and Hannah helped me and both were phenomenal - friendly, informed and patient.
Be sure to ask for shake discounts - great for home rolling, dugouts and other old school methods!!
“I will say I'm thankful they're here. We have no other option in western mass. Great staff and location. Bud is okay all around. I much prefer soil grown and it tends to work better for my ailments than hydro but I understand why they grow it this way but maybe another option for soil grown would be great. The prices are not good. They should scale with quantity. Street prices are so much better. It just sucks that this is really medicine for me and I can barely afford it. As for the shatter it's okay. Very affective for me if I want to go to sleep but I don't have a problem with that usually. I don't get the same medical benefits I do with straight bud. I suspect they are losing terpenes during the extraction. They modulate the high. The flavor really isn't there and there is a lot of residue leftover after the dab. Just giving my professional opinion. I'm hoping with the near monopoly these guys are going to have on weed with legal rec first that they'll do good for their patients and maybe offer some sales or something. 3 weeks I have gone to find their cultivars offering no higher than 16% thc yet costs the same as much higher ones.”
