“I've been to a lot of dispensaries since legal recreational sales kicked in last October, and Shango is definitely one of my top favorites.
My first visit was on the day that sales of rec edibles, topicals, and concentrates started, and I had already been to 3 other dispensaries that day. Most of them had at least a few items in each category to offer, but the information I received about what was allowed was hazy and varied from store to store. One budtender, from another dispensary, even told me that topicals were still off-limits. As soon as I got to Shango I was given the straight facts (which I later confirmed online).
The budtenders who helped me, Tiana and Teisha, were able to offer advice on a lot of the products, but were honest with me when they hadn't tried something I was curious about (this is exactly what I hope to get from any budtender). They gave me a Funk Sac, which I really needed since no other dispensary even offered me one. I don't have children, but I'd never forgive myself if one of my friends accidentally ate a medible at my house. Also, my partner DOES NOT partake, so it's an extra level of security there, too.
The interior of the store is clean, organized, and professional. Some dispensaries make you feel like you're at someone's yard sale or Tupperware party, but Shango actually feels like a business in every way.
In short, YES I will be back (very soon), and YES, I will bring my friends. Shango's approach helps legitimize the recreational market and should be supported in every way possible.
Keep up the good work!”
