The Giving Tree Wellness Center Reviews

  • “My first review was intended for the Mesa location, so I suppose I will update here as well . Made a second visit, same friendly front office staff, and was greeted by both back room staff. Good guys, helpful and answered all my questions. Over all satisfaction, though disappointed the pre-rolls were not ready as promised (I know you all get busy). Buds were effective, the lolly pops were flavorful and effective as well. Thanks to all at The Giving Tree. I will be back. ”

  • “(Deer Valley) Have visited about 10-12 times since GT has opened. When they had first opened their meds were fantastic with prices extremely too high. 400-440$ ounces? I dont think so, especially with a couple other dispensaries prices.. This makes me sick because the meds I grow (and now have to stop growing at the end of december because of this place in particular) blow each and every strain they have ever had (The old frankenberry, tangerine, and original Cannadential were fantastic ill give them that). However, as a grower, I can tell the neglect and carelessness the plants had been given. I can also tell the "indoor" meds I was sold were most definitely OUTDOOR. Looks and taste give that one away. They need to hire new growers or at least hire someone that can teach the current growers what nutrients and nutrient schedules are. Since opening, I have noticed a steady and disappointing decline of quality in GT's meds. The cure is now half-assed, they are extremely skimpy on nutrients, they plants were begging for food. So much actually that the growers harvested the plants early because the plants had been loosing color (This is caused when the plants are deprived of food and begin to take the stored nutrients from leaves that you're suppose to leave until the last couple weeks) I know this as a fact because half of the pistils on the buds are still white. Meaning the plant had not fully matured when it was harvest. This leads to prematurely developed trichomes, meaning very decreased thc content. Like mentioned before, after they first opened the meds were trimmed properly, fresh, moist, cured properly, and of much higher quality. My last unfortunate complaint is of the bud tenders. The two I absolutely love is the middle aged blonde lady, she is very sweet and was always extremely happy to help. And the bigger boned (please do not take as offensive the dude is super cool) guy, he is always awesome and fun to work with; loves to chat with patients and gives off a very caring-vibe. Now for the negative part. About the bald guy with gauges, wears the fedora looking hat. I went awhile refraining from posting anything bad about the guy. The first bad experience I thought maybe he just had a bad day. The second time, I thought maybe a bad 2 weeks? But nope 3,4,5th time this guy needs to have something brought to light. First off, the guy is pretty rude. Walking in, he looks right at me "hey hows it goin" Then looks right back at his computer not acknowledging me until I ask for something. Does not ask anything on a personal level to build any type of relationship, and when I asked about combining a discount I got a rude response as if I was asking him to just give me free stuff. "You want me to do both of them..???" Like damn right, with as much as I have spent there. It's not coming out of his pocket (or anyones really with prices like they charge) 330 for stuff you can get from 250 at other dispensaries. And the 400 dollar ounces are an easy 320-340 anywhere else. I think thats enough ranting for now. Ill be back once more to use my 40$ credit and probably wont return. GT better change something because the competition is now having me drive 50 minutes south (40 minutes south of GT, meaning I drive right past them) Pros: A few of the people there are great. Friendly, caring, and fun to work with. Location is fantastic, Very safe and convenient. Cons: Read all above In short: Prices, people, product. The big the P's. 2/5 2/5 2/5”

    Chij, thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. Not going lie - it hurts a little, but it is invaluable to read honest and open critique. You obviously know what you're talking about and therefore it won't surprise you to hear we have new growers and, as we speak, the cultivations are improving day by day. Like anyone else, we're growing and learning and feedback such as yours will only serve to help us provide the best meds possible. We have and will stand behind all medical marijuana sold and cultivated at the Giving Tree. And stay tuned - what's on the horizon is better than ever! As for your comments on the service experience, I can only apologize and thank you for bringing it to my attention it will be addressed.

  • “The Giving Tree isn't the best dispensary , but they are close to me and have some good strains. They are known not to trim their buds properly, and have seed problems. Prices are high too considering they are far from the best quality strains. They sell 13$ pre-rolls of shake from not the greatest strands and they are only .8 -.6 grams! Two nearby dispensaries have amazing pre-rolls for 13$ that are 1.40 grams. Try elsewhere if you aren't in love with the Giving Tree.”

  • “I've been to The Giving Tree several times now. The meds they offer taste good and are well cured. All of the employees are friendly and patient. I was particularly impressed by the flavor of the Strawberry Cough and Blue Dream. Currently, my only gripes are: A) If you don't sign up right away for the membership ($5), past purchases cannot be credited to your account for 'points'. B) Cost. A fixed income makes full price much more painful, but I understand running a dispensary costs money. I sincerely appreciate the fact that tax is figured in, as this eliminates guesswork. TL;DR: Nice, clean shop with good quality meds, sold by friendly people.”

    Thanks for the kind words! We understand cost is an important issue and are happy to announce we've lowered the price of half and full ounces. Please refer to our updated menu for details.

  • “I have go e to GT a bunch of times now. Yes I agree that it is a bit pricey but the people there are really cool. When you consider that the tax is included in the price, it's really no worse then going to any other state licensed dispensary. But I do think the price of the pre-rolls are too high by $2. Most state dispensaries have them for $10 and under. But other then that, quality of the meds have been pretty good and consistent and I really enjoy the people who work here. Keep up the good work guys!”

    Many apologies for this experience. We have in place meticulous procedures to eliminate this type of thing from ever happening. Obviously, this slipped thru the cracks. If you ever have an issue with the meds bought from Giving Tree, please bring them back and we will always do the right thing to make it good. Thank you for this valuable feedback.

  • “I also made my first visit the other day and wow, what a nice, professional, clean, very orderly dispensary. The staff are extremely courteous, kind and patient with this patient :) . They have a great variety of strains in many different tiers and weights. I was offered a free pre-roll with my first purchase which was awesome and unexpected. Plus they have some great deals! I will be a return customer here most definitely!!! ”

  • “This is the closest dispensary to where I live. The people are great, the facility is nice, the meds are so-so, I found white seeds in one batch of tragic (1/2 gram worth). Even though they think their pricing is in line with competition, they really aren't! They are the most expensive I've seen, up to 50% in the case of pre-rolls. I can get those for 2 for $10 in other places, not $12 each. Like I said, the people are great, but the cost makes me drive further for better prices and meds.”
