I’ve been going to Sunnyside since they took over for Verdant Creations, and at first I was really impressed by the way their organization of things speeded up ordering, checkout, etc. The inventory was also pretty darn good.
NOW, however, I am actively searching for a new dispensary. I’m not sure what happened, but the variety and the brands of their edibles and vapes have been whittled down to the bare bones, and their selection of these products is crap. I’ve asked at least once a week for the last 6 weeks if they’re ever going to get more in and I get shrugs and blank looks. While I’m aware that they have the downtown market basically cornered because so very many of their clients are unable to seek their medical elsewhere, I find myself reluctant to ever spend another penny here now. Then you add in the fact that they just changed their already short hours to 10-5, and I will only be shopping here again if it’s a complete emergency and I have nowhere else to go.
It’s pretty bad when a 5 star review on quality drops to a 0 (or would, if they made that an option) and the 5 star I had on the atmosphere and service is struggling to make it to a 3 star review. The streamlining has gone way too far and there really are other dispensaries that have a better selection. Even their own other dispensaries have much better menu options than Cincinnati! I’m guessing they think (correctly in some cases) that people will settle for what’s there since they’re closer or the client is already there, so don’t even walk in the door unless what you want is on their online menu. Do not trust any other source for their menu and promotions (sorry Leafly) because if it’s not on their online menu, regardless of what other places say, it’s not there and they’ve probably never had it, sadly.
