  • “bought a cheap cartridge that didn't work for my pen. tried to pay the difference for a better cartridge and they tried to sell me one of their pens instead. My only other option is to "extract the resin from the cartridge and put it over weed." Not very customer friendly. ”

    jdschoorl we are sorry we were unable to replace your cartridge with a different brand. Due to our vendor agreements, we may only replace cartridges if they themselves are defective. As with most mechanical items, the product typically works best when used with the manufacturer's specific equipment.

  • “Oh and when you get there ask for Dylan. He knows his strains and will make sure you leave happy.”

    Thank you for calling out your favorite Budtender. We have found the same thing--Dylan knows his strains!

  • “Always a pleasure to shop at this casual and small, but well stocked dispensary. Friendly and helpful staff is attentive but never pushy. Dylan helped me out today and directed me to some great deals and helped me find just what I was looking for.”

  • “Love The CDC! Always my main goto. Tons of great deals and the guys there are super friendly. Kevin is always letting me know how to get the most for the cash I got on me. Atmosphere is chill and the prices are reasonable. Clearly not catering to tourists, not an oak countertop or rotating display case in sight! This is the place you go if you don’t want to overpay, and you want to be in and out in under 10 mins.”

  • “This place is a great re-up stop, catering to those in the Washington Square area. Small parking lot and small floor, the staff are helpful and not pushy as they help you get your gear and go on your way quickly. Friendly staff like Dylan are on hand to answer questions and problem solve to ensure the best value for the customer. On a busy day expect a line and not a lot of room to wait, but a well stocked inventory and a low pressure sales environment makes for a reliable and consistent experience for local customers who know what they're looking for.”

  • “Always slow, always given the absolute minimum. It’s like buying a glass of wine and getting the smallest pour ever. Used to be a great shop, now it’s just a shop.”

    Comment from The CDC

    swducks, we appreciate your constructive feedback and as always if this is your first review we are glad to offer you 10% off on your next visit. Adressing the "absolute minimum" aspect of your review, we unfortunately have to agree. Since the implementation of Oregon's Seed-to-Sale cannabis tracking system we are required to account for every scrap of flower we sell down to the one-hundreth of a gram. Hopefully you can see how this could impact our previous "always over never under" policy for weighing flower in years past.
