Super COVID “aware” environment. I felt very safe due to their precautions, and the cartridge I purchased was fantastic. Will return soon. Tip my guys and gals well!

Crash is the best budtender in PDX! I live in SE and have a million different dispensaries to choose from, which include places closer to my house with a wider strain selection and more competitive pricing. I like Oregrown's branding, their focus on aesthetics and the open space and natural lighting in their stores. I like that they offer curbside pickup and card options, but I am severely disappointed they don't have a tipping option when you pay with card. Why? Because their employees deserve it. Here is a little anecdote: When the pandemic first started and the lockdown was announced, I pretty much shutdown out of fear. I struggle with OCD when the world isn't dealing with a new, deadly virus, so covid19 triggered all my anxiety tenfold. I'm a really friendly, open, loving person, but for awhile, I was scared and slightly hostile toward anyone outside my home coming into my personal space. I was relieved that Oregrown offered curbside pickup, but still nervous about getting within 6ft of anyone, which you still have to do in order to show your ID, hand them your card and get your weed. The first time I met Crash when I was doing curbside pickup, I kinda just threw my ID and card at him and almost burst into tears when he told me i still had to sign the credit slip, which involved getting close and touching a public pen. I think most people would find this insufferable, dramatic and rude. However, Crash is an intuitive, empathetic human with a high emotional intelligence. He probably sensed I didn't want to be acting like a psycho, and was really nice about the whole thing. His response and the way he handled it made me feel a lot better, so I continued shopping at Oregrown. That was like 2 months ago and now I shop there every week and he always remembers me and my preferences and it makes all the difference!! Seriously, give that man a raise!! He's so friendly and kind and genuine. I think it's rare that someone's authenticity can shine through a five-minute sales transaction like that, but his always does!! My covid19 fear is pretty much extinct at this point and I'm not afraid to walk into dispensaries anymore, but I will continue spending my money at Oregrown as long as Crash works there! Thanks for caring about people and being my pandemic budtender buddy - you are making the world a better place just with your attitude and I bet I'm not the only customer who notices!!
It’s a nice shop with good flower. However, I think its really lame what they did with their pricing unless they intend to give their employees hazard pay. As a person in the industry that visits a number of dispensary, this is now one of the most expensive in Portland. The reason I was given for this by a manger was “it’s a sellers market”. There other great dispenseries in the area that have actually Dropped their prices during the pandemic..... It seems that moral bankruptcy has entered into the equation, and they have forgotten about what cannabis counter culture used to mean. This business model surrounding cannabis and making it acceptable to rich people is wishful thinking and I’ve watched it crash and burn when things get too boujee. Their pricing definitely needs to drop back down for me, as a bud tender and grower, to afford to shop here. I can get the same flower in other places for 20% less. Their merch is also California priced, and I’ll stick with finding scores by thrifting. Really hope they reconsider some choices.
I used to be a regular customer, however since quarantine they’ve dramatically raised their prices by about $20 which is a lot. 2 weeks ago I got the same products for half the price. Many other dispensaries near by have the same products and regular price, not taxed based of the worlds current situation. Making money off of people that are barely struggling to afford their medication is dirty.
Miranda was helpful and friendly, and knew some great deals to help me get the most out of my visit. The store is neat and chill, and I can't wait to scope out more of their products. Got great prices on some edibles that beat anything I have seen in town.
