I love how the share thier knowledge nonstop. I tried a cartridge pen and had a horable experience, when i explained exactly what i didnt like, my budtender came our to sit with me with an armfull or equipment. After almost 45 min of research and discussion i ended up with a Pax 2, infused salve, coconut oil and 3 different strains to try. I even ordered the Bud Kups my rep suggested amd now i switch strains like a pro. He didnt push or hound. Ive been back and he always asks how im doing.

The Verdes Foundation in Albuquerque is far and away the best dispensary for many reasons. First they have the highest quality flower and edibles I have found in the greater ABQ area. Second, they offer classes and demos of their products and the employees are certified by a cannabis nurse. Yesterday I got free assistance from Renee concerning the best strains for my particular symptoms. I even received a sample of medicine! No other dispensary in the greater ABQ has done that for me. The third reason I think they are the best is that I purchased a vaporizer from them and then lost my how-to-use instruction booklet. Verdes copied me off a new one--no charge! Renee also walked me through the whole process of cleaning and set up of my vaporizer. I have tried all the other dispensaries to get birthday stuff, but my heart belongs to Verdes.
I really liked them the first time I visited but the interactions have been steadily declining. I'm not really sure they're medication focused and they don't really seem interested in serving all qualifying patients. Their budtenders are nice enough but I haven't really had any luck with their recommendation. My most recent visit has left a rather bad taste in my mouth. The short version is, they either lied about having a product, bait-and-switched, sold part of my reservation to someone else, or a combination therein. Furthermore, what they did sell me (the Grenco battery and herbal atomizer) did not come with instructions. Much to my surprise and frustration the battery actually needs a charger they don't even carry - and their budtenders don't seem to know this or really anything about the product they did try to sell me a standard micro USB cable though. This is incredibly disappointing and now I've wasted money on something I'm not even sure I can use and I cannot return. Overall, I wouldn't recommend them. There are other dispensaries that are more transparent, patient oriented, with better prices and more knowledgeable/experienced/helpful budtenders.
This is my favorite dispensary in Albuquerque, not only for the flower but for the staff. Everyone know each others name, and it’s such a positive atmosphere that really makes you feel welcomed.
