“Good spot. Great customer service and the menu has expanded, although at times it is limited as is the amounts of whichever item you wish to purchase. Free apples while you wait, and waiting will happen, even using their express line. Overall great quality on the menu and my primary shop.”
“I've only been to 3 dispensaries, but this one is the best one I've been to, it's always my first choice now. The staff there are very nice and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I really love the quality of what I get here, I haven't tried their shatter or wax yet, but their other products never disappoint and usually end up testing higher than advertised. I love that they're open 7 days a week too and take walk ins. they're always adding new stuff to their menu, and the prices really aren't bad. love this place! ”
“I haven't had a bad experience here. The people that work at this location are all really nice and knowledgeable. I don't understand how people can complain about the quality, I have had nothing but great quality bud from NETA. Also, the price complaints? Get a vaporizer folks, you'll need less bud for the same results. My only complaints are the parking (not much of it) and the wait times can be long (not really NETA's fault). Also, when they first opened they were carrying Durban Poison regularly but now it's almost never on the menu, it's just kind of a tease to me because I love the strain! ”
“Neta replyed back with this: "Our team takes great care to ensure that all flower is carefully dried and cured as best as possible for each batch. This is usually about 10-14 days for dry time, then 7-14 days for cure time, depending on the batch. The majority of our patients prefer flower that has not been overdried and we use Boveda packs to prevent this after cure is finished." Their dry time is Good 10-14 days but you need to cure bud for atleast 5 months. The bud will not become any dryer then what Neta offers now, but instead the process of the water being pulled from the buds is at a much slow rate and is overall big factor with smoothness and tast of the marijuana. If you speed this process up you will lock in chlorophyll pigments making all the weed tast the same&bad and harsh on the lungs. Marijuana is like wine, if it take 20years for the wine to be ready then it takes 20years not a day shorter or your being sold a wine that's not ready. newb then u'l never notice this issue and that is wrong of neta. They speed the entire process up if the growing to get the marijuana out fast ( u'l never get big fat nug from them)! I don't see how testing the product could cost so much and still call it competitive price and good explanation. Okay, the concentrates are bomb because you don't need to cure concentrates ( some of the best shatter is made from fresh trimmings)”. You do not need to cure marijuana when makeing concentrates with butane because chlorophyll is a polar bond & butane is a non-polar bond so the extract of concentrates has no chlorophyll.”
We at NETA generally welcome all patient inquiries and comments. However, there is a bit of misinformation contained in your review. Certainly, some patients may prefer a longer cure time for their cannabis flower. However, the 5 month period that you referenced is neither tenable in the setting in which we are licensed to operate, nor necessarily good for flower quality and cannabinoid maintenance.
Regarding testing: There are a number of tests that are required by the state. These include a full cannabinoid profile as well as pesticide, yeast/mold, heavy metal, and bacterial analyses. These are quite expensive and are not optional.
“I was impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. The day I went was a perfect storm of situations that created a full dispensary with log waits. But all of this was immediately explained to me upon entering, and as a first time visitor, I got a friendly, knowledgeable consult in less than 1 minute. The place is clean, tastefully designed with wood furnishings and warm lighting. I feel like if during a migraine I would love to go there just to curl up in a corner! Product was nicely packaged in scent proof and safety containers. All around great experience~ despite the wait in line!”
“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.
