“Yesterday was my first visit to Oregon's Finest, and I have to say, in terms of quality and selection of medicine, it 100% lives up to its name. Upon entry, my first impression was surprise at the number of people waiting in the lobby (about 10) . I was unsure at first whether I wanted to stay, and even debated coming back another time when it was less busy, but, figuring I had already made the trip, I decided I had might as well wait it out.
I'm glad I did.
Once it was my turn, I was greeted into the back by a friendly employee (a new hire, as it turns out) who was friendly and accommodating. Any questions I had he was happy to answer and fielded adequately, but, to be perfectly honest, not too many questions were all that necessary as the product speaks volumes and trichome-crystal-clear for itself. My goodness. Let me be clear -- I have been perfectly content and satisfied with the quality of meds I have been receiving up to this point from the other dispensaries I have regularly been frequenting -- but the quality exuding from this establishment is truly the measure from which other dispensaries around town (probably even the region) should be attempting to emulate. The buds were soft, well manicured, fresh, healthy, and smelled absolutely delicious. I would love to learn more about the growing techniques employed by the vendors stocking these shelves. You can tell even by the aroma alone these growers are doing it right, and better, than their competition.
Also nice is the fact they stock the medicine in glass jars on shelves much like a retail product that is accessible to the consumer. In other dispensaries I've gone to, I've always felt needy asking the employees to pull out jar after jar of the different strains I wanted to take a closer look, even if they were very nice about it. Not here. The bud is just sitting on a shelf waiting for you to open up and appreciate. (I also noticed they provide coffee beans to cleanse the palette, which is a nice touch.)
As is the quality, so too is the selection. They have a great variety of Indica, Sativas, and Hybrids to choose from, with familiar strains and more exotic strains both in stock. (They also carried strains high in CBD too, which gave them extra bonus points in my mind). I asked and it seems as though there is usually a rotating stock of new strains, but also some staples they usually try to keep around, which, from a consumer standpoint, I appreciate and consider to be a good approach.
The fact is, while there are a few things I would consider adopting or doing differently if I were the owners, I will probably end up making this my new go-to place. And to the owners/mgmt, if they do read this: Thank you and my sincere compliments!
Friendly Protip: If you have a family like I do, I would advise parking the car and taking a walk down the street to Jamison Park and letting the kids run around. When I went yesterday (~6,7 PM) they had some water fountains on that kids were able to run around and play in, so, as advised in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, bring a towel :)”
