New Vansterdam - Vancouver Reviews

  • “First trip to this or any recreational store. Budtender was very nice and patient. She answered all questions and even used the Leafy app to help sort out a suitable strain. Impressed with the number of employees working, how busy it was, and how organized the process was. Would definitely stop in again!”

  • “Little bit pretentious and not as helpful as I would have liked. Lots of talk about growers to avoid buying. Not about getting a good match for me. ”

    We appreciate the feedback. We stock product ranging from low to high potency with flower as low as 5% THC and as high as 26% at this very moment. Our concentrates exceed this as well! We would invite you to give our store another chance so we can introduce these wonderful products in person and find the best match for you.

  • “Well they have nothing out to actually look out, prices are horrible at best,all the people were busy, when asked to look at they shove a stupid menu at me like I'm gonna pick by a name instead of wanting to look at the quality....never come here again”

    Thank you for your feedback. We strive for a personable, educational experience and I apologize your visit did not feel either. I would like to invite you to revisit New Vansterdam so we can provide you with a proper cannabis market experience. We would introduce you to our 40' weed wall, which displays hundreds of products all available for closer inspection. We would also be happy provide you with a bud box, which offers even closer observation and the ability to smell a product prior to buying. Both of these utilities are available in-store to help you find the right product for you.

  • “New Vansterdam has improved a lot since first opening. I've always liked the atmosphere there, I'll forgive them for being sparse in their first year of business, not sure why that's such a surprise to people. But they've filled out a lot since first opening. The service is better now. In my most recent visit, I got great advice from one of the employees about finding a strain that worked well for me. Friendly, helpful, suggested a lot of strains. He wasn't bullshitting either, he clearly had actually smoked the product. Again, let's be fair, it's going to take a little time before the employees really get to know their product. Quality has always been good in my opinion. I have had iffy experiences with Main Street Marijuana early on where I paid double street price and got half the quality (though those folks have improved A LOT too.) At New Vansterdam I've always got great weed. Not super premium every time, but always great stuff. And you can get premium if you pay for it. Finally and most importantly, price. Everyone's prices are way better than they used to be. In the beginning, I paid around $40 or $50 for 2g of alright bud. Just last week I walked out with 2g of nice Jack Herer for $30. It gets a lot cheaper than that too if you're willing to pick up whatever's on sale. I also bought 2g of Blue Dream for $10. Only about 13% THC, but the high was still great if you smoked a little more. If I do the math, that works out to better value for the same prices folks were paying on the black market. If you haven't been to a recreational retailer recently, go back and try again. Things have improved and prices have indeed leveled out as expected. Sure you can still pay $25 a gram if you want something specific and premium, but the inexpensive options are there, and the quality is still good. In my opinion, buying legal is now a totally viable option, and New Vansterdam is a great place to do it.”

  • “do NOT trust their leafly menu. theyll straight up bait & switch you. they advertise strains at lower prices than they are in store, then tell you theyve never carried anything in that pricerange. on top of that, it feels like a fast food atmosphere, minus the fast. worst of all, you dont even get to see the flower you are purchasing until youve been rung up and ushered toward the door. will not be returning. ”

  • “Being new to checking out dispensaries, New Vansterdam was a bit overwhelming at first, but coming in early in the day I was easily able to be helped by the knowledgeable staff who was able to help me make some good selections, without pushing their preferences which I had at some of the other dispensaries. Once I got acquainted with the menu, being able to look things up was a breeze and made talking about the buds much more enjoyable in my opinion”
