I called this dispensary on July 29,2019 to inquire about how much they had in stock of a particular strain, Buddha tahoe by NW Artisan growers. I’m a med patient and this strain helps with some very particular symptoms that I have. I am very familiar with the strain and go out of my way to buy it whenever I find it. The guy in the phone was polite and said yeah they had an Oz. of it. I drove across town within an hour to get it. The same guy I talked to checked me in and brought out a jar of “ Buddha Tahoe”. He weighed it and it was exactly an ounce of bud. To be honest, I didn’t check it out much or I would have noticed the difference between whatever this was and Buddha Tahoe. I bought the ounce of bud and another 5.9 grams of shake... that’s how much I love this strain I spent $272.50 and tipped $15. When I got home and opened it I noticed that it was really Dark colored, not the bright green that Buddha usually is. I was smoking the shake at this point so I just figured some of the leaves were darker. At night I rolled up a joint of bud and noticed again how dark it was. I got about half way through the joint before I realized this wasn’t Buddha. In fact I don’t think it was an indica. It was ok bud, but I’m a topshelf kind of girl. And I wouldn’t have paid that much for it. Actually, I wouldn’t have bought it.
I was still giving them the benefit of the doubt but I did start looking at the menu daily, as remember I bought all the “ Buddha Tahoe” they had. I even asked when they thought they’d get more and was told “ he didn’t know, but probably awhile. Keep checking the menu”. It’s been more than a week now and they’ve updated the menu everyday and they still have the Buddha on it. I usually wouldn’t post something like this but I’ve been using cannabis for over 30 years and I know my bud. Whatever I bought, was 150% NOT Buddha tahoe. In fact, it wasn’t even indica it was sativa.
This is such a stupid way to do business. They thought they could bait and switch me because I don’t “look” like I know about pot. If you had actually sold me what I paid for, I would have been a loyal customer who spends anywhere from $300-$500 a month on pot, but instead, I will tell everyone I know not to do business with you. I’ve experienced a lot of weird stuff in dispensary’s since legalization, but this was the first time I was straight up, ripped off. Shame on you.
And my last time here.... I should have read the previous reviews.
