The Green Solution is a vapid Apple-store/Best Buy type dispensary experience. You enter like airport security through rope lines winding this way and that. There are bright flashy electronic displays showing information (if you can read it through the glare of the screen and the glass display case the screen is behind) and one chosen nug of each flower on its own little pedestal.
The flower is of reasonable quality, the cure perhaps a little overdone, but you will only ever inspect one preweighed 1/8 of whatever you ask for.
There is an abundance of paraphernalia, upsells, and addons offered for rather steep prices. All prices are listed pre-tax, and they will force you to buy a carry bag if like me you didn't know you needed to bring one of your own.
I looked up the available strains on Leafly, none of which seemed to be available in the store. I hesitantly selected an overpriced 1/8 only to discover that the post-tax price made it even more unaffordable. The insult to injury was that I had to pay for a carry bag... it was only $1 but seeing as I don't ever plan to return to this dispensary (merely from lack of any compelling reason to do so) it just pissed me off more.
Im sure that dude-bros with money falling out of their pockets may love this type of experience, but I prefer simplicity. Give me honest out-the-door pricing, the ability to watch my flower get weighed, and a little warmth to the environment.
Dispensary said:Thank you for the detailed review. We pre-weigh all our flower because we must stream line the experience. We do see many customers a day, and we can't bottle neck during the process. We want to make sure that each experience in timely, but fullfilling for the patron. Also, compliance is very important to TGS. That bag serves as child safe packaging so no one accidently finds your stash. If you have any questions, please ask for a manager, and they are more than happy to answer all your questions. We appreciate your feedback, and we will see you very soon.
