“Most of the staff is fantastic, every once in a while u get someone who seems like they couldn't be bothered. The flower is high quality, but they run out quick. I'd call b4 if u r going for a certain strain. I don't like the waiting area to get in to the dispensary, I don't see the point? You don't know how many people r in there, how many budtenders are working & it makes the wait time unpredictable. ”
“I love Patriot Care Boston. I have gone to another dispensary and I was there for about 3 hours. With Patriot Care I am in and out. Clean facility and kind and knowledgeable staff. This is my go to place, Especially on Wednesdays, where I get to spin a wheel and get awesome discounts.”
“I was there last week and picked up one the newer strains: Strawberry Fields #9. It was really clean tasting with a slight fruitiness and a clear strawberry aroma. As strong as it was it was not entirely unmotivating and I was able to function normally even though it was quite effective and definitely assisted with my sleep cycles. I will certainly keep an eye on the menu to see if I can pick this strain up again.”
“Patriot Care has the most effective, AND best-tasting edibles I've found at any dispensary I've visited in MA. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Location is convenient to the T but can be tricky to find.”
“Was really impressed with Patriot Care overall. In & out fast. Polite, professional, and knowledgeable staff. The flower is great, esp. the Star Kush and MediHaze. I got some very nice deals for my first visit as well as loyalty points to use on future visits.”
“I really appreciate and thank everyone at Patriot Care for everything they've done for me. I am taken care of each time I am there. The quality of the medicine is only getting better and better. I don't know what I would do without Patriot Care Boston. I am doing better with my symptoms and very thankful for it. Highly recommended.”
“You absolutely cannot beat the level of professionalism at Patriot Care in Boston. From the security at the door, to the front desk/check in, to the customer service team out back, I have consistently been treated with respect and made to feel welcome. They're great at answering any questions I might have, it's a very knowledgeable staff. I have visited three dispensaries in Massachusetts and Patriot Care in Boston is leaps and bounds the most inviting and attractive location- I love the contemporary furnishings and just how approachable everyone is. My only (very minor) complaint is I wish they were open a little earlier in the morning, like at 9:00 am.”
“Having been to this dispensary when they first opened, patriotcare has always been the fastest in-and-out dispensary - with almost no wait in line. Ive tried their bundle of 5 prerolls recently and theyre absolutely amazing. Burns really slow and and smokes smooth considering its only 0.5 gram in each preroll! Absolutely amazing would recommend”
“This is the place that broke my heart. I'll start with the good stuff though:
The woman who typically signs you in at the front desk is AMAZING. Pleasant, knowledgeable, cool. The people helping you with your orders are friendly and although they seemed to have some newer (less knowledgeable) staff still training up, they all work collaboratively - if you have a question that your person can't answer, they'll ask someone. I appreciate that. Flower variety is off the charts here. Always switching it up. Concentrates are very high quality and their cookies are great.
Strain of the month club started great, ultimately kind of turned into a ripoff. The flower here is ultra dry as compared to other local shops. Not sure if it's the pre-packaging? Also, over time the variety in flower started to include several lower/mid level quality strains with just a couple high quality ones. I looooove variety, but I'd rather have just 4 killer options instead of sifting through many mediocre ones trying to find the standout.
All of the above named cons I was still willing to overlook when I balance it with the pros, but the last one has caused me to stop visiting Patriot, probably forever. The last time I tried to visit, I was denied entry. I needed my medicine and I had traveled there during a terrible downpour. I finally arrived 15 minutes before closing, and for where Patriot is located it can be tricky (whether you're on foot or you drive). A security guard (not the usual one) informed me that they were too busy and no one else could come in. I told him I really needed my medicine, I'd traveled in the pouring rain and I would never make it to the next closest dispensary in time. I got a very insincere "I'm sorry" and he turned away. I stood under a building awning next door and called Patriot. I figured for sure if I got someone on the phone, they'd let me in. No answer. I left a detailed message with my phone number. No one let me in that day, and no one returned my call (ever).
As much as I loved this place, out of principle I just can't go back. To not even return a customer call is really poor, and not letting me in because they were busy when that place is so difficult to get to still irritates me when I think about it. There are many more choices for mmj than there were even 6 months ago, so I can't justify going back. I also learned that Patriot was very vocal and put up money to try to block legalization of recreational mj. They made a deal with the city where they grow which is only worth it for them if everything stays Medical only, but it will cost them if the state goes Rec. I guess for Patriot leadership, it comes down to politics and profit instead of people. It makes me sad, because this place got into the scene early and I loved them :-(”
