“They always give you the least medicine of all the dispensaries and charge the most and their express lane made me wait longer than someone just coming in and there is nothing express about it people went up asking questions not knowing what they wanted anyway, if this wasn't the closest compassion center to me I probably would never go here”
“This places meds are overpriced and the worst quality i have ever seen in a professional environment. The staff (on more meds than the patients) is oblivious to the patients needs and the atmosphere fells more like high school study period rather a professional medical business. The meds themselves are not cured at all and imo overdied and rushed. The bud quality is non existent, you are lucky if you see anything bigger than a quarter.”
“This is the best place & I do edibles only. The people are awesome, parient & eager to help. Knowledgeable. It'd be great if they had a Cafe in the corner for a safe place to go and meet new friends & old. This is my place to go!”
“This place is great. Everyone has been very nice and seemed informed. The interior is beautiful and it feels very welcoming. It is not too expensive. They have some strains for under $10 but most go for $12-17. For the quality it's worth it. I haven't really found a bad strain from them. I wish they had a bit more variety more often but other than that I always look forward to buying from them. It's great to see a positive experience offered for those with medical issues.”
“I am a relatively new MMJ patient, and TCS is one of the 2 dispensaries I was able to select. My initial impression and first visit was excellent. The facility is safe, beautiful, and easy to get to. Plenty of handicapped parking as well. Easy on/off from the highway, located across from the main Providence Post Office public parking lot on the corner.
The inside is very nice and inviting. There are a large number of “budtenders” here when it’s busy, and for the most part with one exception everyone is very friendly and helpful. I’ve never seen anything behind the scenes, but everything up front is professional and you can tell that a large investment was made. There are about 8 stations and depending on the day or time there may be a few or a lot of workers.
There is an on-premises security guard. You can sign in on a tablet on the way in to earn discounts and sign up for text messages regarding specials etc. You then take a number like at the meat counter at the supermarket and wait for them to call your number reminiscent of the RI DMV without all the dread lol.
I think the pricing is currently very fair. I have heard it was more expensive in the past. I wish that the strains available would change up more frequently, and also have some “nationally known” strains in the mix would be very helpful. If you are low on cash, it’s nice to know you can leave with some medicine for under $10 bucks which I think is awesome.
I wish they were able to obtain edibles from other makers out of state, like Cheba Chews, and all those wonderful candy bars available out west.
I think they have become too comfortable lately, and are not really engaging and doing a lot of social media updates. I wish they published more in YouTube and their Twitter feed. Some suggestions – have patients re-use the bags to go, which I imagine are not all that cheap. If a patient brings back their empty bag to re-cycle, offer your cost of the bag back e.g. .50 cents. I’m not a huge fan of the zip lock bags, as they tend to crush the bud. I have heard in the past that glass jars were used – probably more expensive, but if the community used re-cycling you would only need to pay the cost once and then re-use for future visits.
The edibles have been excellent so far – no complaints. This place is pretty good, but I think they can make some changes and get into the excellent category. There seem to be a lot of negative reviews, but it looks like things have simmered down since pricing changes in January – at least that is what I have noticed in these reviews.
They do not advertise anything larger than an eighth – they only sell grams and eighths. It’s nice that they accept payment methods other than cash – I have paid only cash but noticed a sign regarding that payments will be made to your credit card under a certain alias name.
There is a lot of empty space which is large and inviting, I’m hoping that the space is reserved for more products. I predict that RI will legalize recreational MJ before the end of 2017.”
“Most of the staff is awesome very big inside and comfortable seats while you wait. The Quality of the bud has been terrible even with the price drops and the THC levels I feel are lies. And the past 3-4 months of having the SAME STRAINS in have been just sucky. I like to try different strains and feel the effects. Hopefully they switch up the strains and the grower cause the bud has been better elsewhere.”
