  • “I have lived in CA for almost five years and have been a patient for 4 The Apothecarium is the dispensary I believe has the best quality products all around anywhere in SF the staff are very knowledgable and helpful and have always been very kind and courteous with me which means a lot because sometimes I have a large order I want to get and like trying their new strains and I ask questions and get their opinions because they are very smart and will give you a very good description of their take on whatever you are asking about Jess who works there also leads different group workshops every week there is a Cannabis 101 type group and a yoga group as well as grief counseling and also life threatening illness group as well and they are all completely free and you actually get a coupon for 15 or 20% off next time you go there which is pretty cool to me :) Well if you are around the Church and Market/Castro area or are looking for amazing quality buds concentrates and edibles as well as many many other forms of VERY HIGH quality medicines and don't mind paying a little more because it is worth every penny head to The Apothecarium!”

  • “Great atmosphere, 1x1 service, friendly yet professional setting. Very knowledgable & friendly staff. Great selection, hides their CBD off the menu to reserve for needy patients, great freebies ($85 spent gets you free pre-roll, point system for free gift certificate, holiday deals, etc.). This place also holds free classes and talks about the medicine. My only complaint is the suggested donation amounts. I think this is the most expensive club I've been too, but great quality & overall experience”

  • “I am very impressed by the atmosphere of professionalism and service. You cannot medicate on the premises, and this place is essentially a dispensary, not a club. Some may find it too antiseptic, cold or genteel — but these are all qualities I admire in a business. The quality of the flowers is exceptional, and the prices are reasonable for the city. The budtender was generous with his scale, which counts for a lot in my opinion.”

  • “The quality of the meds was really good. I remember I was sick the day I went, so I got these lozenges that were medicated, and they worked great! They seemed to have pretty top shelf/high quality strains. I didn't like the atmosphere, because it seemed too professional and up-tight. I felt like I couldn't relax in the environment of this place, because everyone just seemed so serious. Also, I remember they had a very lengthy list of rules that you HAD to follow, or else. One of them was that you couldn't sit at the counter for a certain length of time (I forget how long they said). In my opinion, you should be able to take your time selecting your medicine. It shouldn't be an in the door out the door type process. The atmosphere was boring, dull, and too serious for my taste. I like to become friends with the people working the counter, or at least I'd like to be able to get advice from them or hold a nice conversation. It put me off that they had a "menu" that barely had all their products on it, and that you were expected to have studied before you went up to get your medicine. One of the strains I was really hoping for was actually out of stock, but still on the "menu", so I was frustrated.. If you want good quality medicine and don't care about the vibe of the place, or demeanor of the people serving you, then this place is great for you. Also, some strains had pretty low prices, but only a couple. ”
