TL;dr at the bottom.
I can’t edit my review so I’m leaving another after having thought it through.
I spent $212 for 26 grams and was really disappointed in the whole experience.
My first time officially buying weed legally and it feels like I’m dealing with a dealer who doesn’t care if I give them my money or not.
I walked in the door and stood there long enough that I got cold and went back to my car to get a jacket. (I had started a timer after a while of standing in the lobby at the check in desk to see how long I’d be standing there but then I got 🥶 and went to grab a jacket after about 3 minutes so it wasn’t that long) thing is though, no one noticed, and another dude had pulled up and we walked in (well I was walking back in) together. We stood there for a moment and the front host came up from the back. The other guy was helped first, but that’s was cool with me because I wanted to see what was what.
He checked in and got a number, so then when the front desk host looked up at me I showed them my temp card/email on my phone and told her through my mask that I wasn’t sure how this worked as it was my first time. She said “That’s cool, I just need your driver’s license :)!” And gave me a number.
I sat and stared at their menu for awhile;
Then had to stare at a different menu when I got to the register because the one in the lobby must have been old or something, they didn’t explain, the guy behind the register was too stoned to care to give a real answer to anything.
He was patient enough, but his eyes were so red I think patience was all he had at the moment. Even with all his patience, the setup of this dispensary made me feel rushed and uncomfortable.
I didn’t like that I couldn’t see any examples of the product. (Don’t bother mentioning the posters on the wall or the picture in the tv behind the counter 🤦♀️)
I was trying not to spend too much money but I’d been told that they do bulk discounts, but apparently 1/8 of flower is pretty much the limit, but you can but 8 eights if you want an ounce. Get wreckt.
So discounts are based off how much you’re spending not how much you’re buying.
So I’m trying to see how much I can spend and get some discounts when suddenly high guy behind the counter remembers to tell me that I’ll get a 25% discount for being a first time customer. 🧏♀️🙋♀️🙆♀️🤦♀️
So I rattle off what I want and I’m ready to pay but I didn’t know I had to use cash. 🤦♀️ 🤦♀️ 🤦♀️.... so I slide over to the atm and pull out a bunch of cash in front of a bunch of people, and then go hand it to high guy. He tells me to have a seat and someone will bring it out after giving me a receipt.
I waited roughly half an hour and then a super happy energetic little guy walks out with a bag for me and ask me to “flash him” my receipt to confirm my order.
When I got home a reviewed my purchase
The 14 grams of indica shake i received was only 13.8 and had definitely been through a grinder.. I didn’t mind that, but when I had asked the high guy bud tender to describe the consistency of the shake he was not able to think to say it was finely ground. Idk, maybe he didn’t know either.
The three eights I bought were on point for weight but the pre rolls were all supposed to be 1.0 g and two we’re definitely only 0.5 g pre rolls (I smoked one, well i tried to, before I relished they sucked, or well didn’t suck well enough). All of which where finely ground and too tightly rolled, likely by a machine. They did not burn well, I broke down all three pre rolls I bought and re rolled them.
The flower was also a bit over dry and all had harvest dates of 6 months ago to 4 months ago but that shouldn’t be bad if it’s properly stored but Idk if it was properly stored. The thc ranges on all the flower was a bit lower on the jar i received than what the menu had listed but it was still good. Albeit I really feel they all had some chemical taste to them, I think that has to do with the grow methods, like what nutrients are feed to the plant and whether they flush before harvest. Idk I’m spitballing.
All in all, a disappointment , especially considering an once on the street is $200 for some better quality flower than this.
Sure this was a lot more convenient than some street deals. But not at all better.
I won’t be back.
The powers that be seem to be commercializing cannabis so heavily in Florida that they’ll drive away the daily users in favor of the casual ones.
I was thinking i might be able to stay in Florida after getting my medical card but I’m back to planning on moving out of state.
TL;DR - - $212 for 26 grams even with 25% discount. Inattentive (possible overtasked-saw her all over the place help other employees) front host person. Super high guy at register, might have almost forgotten to give me a first time customer discount. Cannabis weighed out a little bit short(I think due to over drying) thc percentage advertised was on average 1 percent less in the bud recieved. Pre rolls sucked, better off breaking those up and re rolling them.
