“I've tried many different dispensaries and delivery services around the valley, and this is by far favorite here in the Mesa area. Went here for the first time today, and this place is awesome! Professional atmosphere, very safe environment (neighborhood isn't ghetto!), security locks on doors, lots of knowledgeable staff, huge selection of meds ranging from top-shelf down to low-shelf quality, and they have a nice selection of edibles, pipes, vaporizers, grinders, etc. etc. Even got a pre-roll for it being my first visit. Meds are top quality -- dense, tight nugs, not too dry, covered in orange hairs and crystals. Oh, and their gummy bears will not disappoint! I highly recommend these guys. I will be coming here a lot more often from now on!”
“Amazing place feeling welcome in a completely professional looking office. Very nice people that want to help with your needs. Upety looking shop that I highly recommend for quality quantity and amazing customer service”
“Other than television shows, this was my first introduction to the medical marijuana scene and it did not disappoint. After years of self-treatment and dealing with unreliable dealers who rarely had more than one strain to offer this was like being a kid in a candy store. The staff was welcoming and those who assisted me in selecting meds seemed to really know their strains. Have tried 3 of their top shelf strains so far and they are easily some of the best I've ever smoked. Definitely plan to make a bi-weekly stop at Giving Tree.”
“ The Giving Tree is a better dispensary than most, (in AZ) a great atmosphere and friendly easy people. I will return to check on the inventory and with a consistency of quality at a good value I will make it my regular place. They give free .7 gram spliffs with purchases higher than so much. I don't recall, maybe 100$. So find what you like and buy by the ounce, get a couple of free spliffs with it. Place is more balanced and professional than the other dispensaries in AZ I've been to. Nice people and reasonable buds, candy, brownies (are awesome at 120mg).
A note not involving giving tree but may be of value to them.
Having grown multiple types and styles for the very ill and dispensaries in CA and OR I feel that AZ has far to go. Especially when dealing with folks that have compromised immune systems. It is imperative to be pure and medical grade. I also feel that it is unreasonable to charge higher rates for higher THC content as it costs the same to produce a plant regardless of dry weight or content. I realize everyone will want that one but not if someone educated, educates them in the info that THC % doesn't create the more medicinal cannabis. There are nearly 450 cannabinoids in a plant depending on the strain. And much of the medicinal value can be obtained through whole plant extracts like those used as a common cancer therapy in Spain with great success. I also would like to see a THC or sub cannabinoid % content and a contamination free cert.
I would love to see AZ get the act together in terms of quality and diversity of product as well as providing clones that are not contaminated at every turn. (giving tree doesn't do clones). It looks bad to see a WPM or Mite invested clone and expect a customer to not expect the buds to be covered in pesticides or dead mites or spores. Then a poor novice buys one and either destroys the crop or infests the grow room or the crop just dies. Or in my personal experience get fungal bronchitis from one use of buds contaminated with botrytis. Often the pests on these plants have adapted to natural forms of control and the only way to clear them is with good knowledge and technique or not at all or using a pesticide (might as well drink ant poison) The so called dispensaries here could use a major overhaul. If someone with the experiences like myself was involved, that dispensary would be leading in the state. Look for someone that has done it for years already in another state and hire them. I'm new to purchasing buds as I've grown my own until recently with the proximity laws here. Maybe I'm spoiled and picky.
Once again, the above statements are not a negative report on The Giving Tree. I'm expressing where improvements state wide could be and how picky I am. This place was GREAT! I hope they read the advice above and become a great success. I will return and enjoy a decent product.”

“This is my only D. Its not possible to get the quality of medicine they have on thier top or even primo shelf elsewhere. You will see after a visit to one or 2 like harvest of tempe... They are giften with growing, and every staff I have talked to I have grown a Mini bond with. They are extremely friendly and professional. Iv gone to great lengths to get my meds from this shop the staff knows what I mean "meow meow" Do NOT take more than 2 3 if you think you can hang of top shelf or you WILL be napping period. QQ ppl most friendly staff ever along with the insane quality of herb all while being totaly legit and legal you CANT go wrong. mark my words in 3 - 4 days when cannadential and white widow arrives i dare you even to look at it properly air smell tight sealed from harvest! you complain they ran out?! they ran out because thier shit is AMAZING and gods private stash and word spreads fast. they are growing FAST and taking on a LOT of patients quality spreads fast among smokers who buy medical at the price we have to pay for top notch medical why not get the best you can find here you get that! ”
“Yeah, so I tried it a second time and shame on me. STAY AWAY!!!!!! This place IS a joke. One strain in the whole building. Yes, one. And it was old, dried out garbage that gave me a raging headache. It's a shame too; great building in a safe location - looks are deceiving. This place is not well-managed and the staff do not seem like caring people. I feel like their intentions are fake...not a good vibe from anyone there.”
