“I, like other commenters here, avoid new dispensaries like the plague typically. There's so many of them, and it's an awkward feeling walking into a room full of garbage in a 1 on 1 setting. I always feel compelled to spend something.
I decided to visit strains on Sunday night, feeling adventurous and I assumed it was safe to visit based on other reviewers who I trust.
I was greeted by a familiar face at the door, it was Meghan who has worked at other dispensaries around the city, one of which I would rank near the bottom of my personal list (you can see my review on here). Prepared to walk out, I was ensured that there was no affiliation and proceeded into the room. No wait, and I proceeded into the room to be greeted by another familiar face. Slightly weary I take a look into the jars in their nicely designed room and am really happy with what I see. Top shelf was $15, and they had options in the 10 and below. Tbh I enjoyed what I got from the $10 more than $15 (Gorilla Cookie was nice, but I think was cut down a little late, inconsistent pieces, either way I paid happy hour prices for it and have zero complaints). I also picked up an 8th of island sweet skunk which looked like strawberry diesel, but everyone grows differently and achieves different results. Regardless it was bomb. Free gram of sour strawberry kush which I probably should have got more of.
It was a welcome change from the two dispensaries I had frequented almost exclusively for the last 5 months. Bright lights, happy people, and uplifting positive sativa and hybrids.
*note for the girls there, my review of your last place did not reflect you. I made a comment about how someone was too high to be working, rest assured it wasn't either of you. Good luck with the new place, you'll be seeing me again soon. ”
“I have to say I'm usually pretty critical when it comes to new dispensaries, but I was impressed with STRAINS and I will be back! Staff is super friendly(Thanks Barbara!), she broke everything down real easy (The way it should be) and they have all kinds of strains I've never seen or heard of before. Totally fair prices too! Shoutout to STRAINS! Check em out!”
“Strains was 25-30 minutes from closing when i arrived so, from what was said, they were rinning low on meds so there were very few options. I did, however, leave with some good meds and a free gift, though. I will try them again and update my review at a later date. ”
“extremely courteous and wasn't rushed at all. bud tender gave me a rundown on their pricing and I was floored at how delicious and plentiful their 10$ grams were. tasty yet expensive concentrates but I will for sure be visiting again. shout out to J! she deserved the tip!”
