“I LOVE THE REMODEL!! It is great & a much more relaxing atmosphere! I love all the Tender! They know their products & do not overwhelm me.
Several years ago I would come in there, but I did not like the atmosphere & hated the waiting area. Once inside there were very few Tenders that I liked & understood how not to overwhelm me.
Now it's totally different and I LOVE this place & it is just block from where I live.”
“This is already my third time visiting VBCC and all i can say is its a must stop shop if you're visiting Venice. If you're a local i am sure you already know about this gold mine. VBCC makes getting your medicine a lot easier than most other collectives as they have very knowledgeable bud tenders . The security guards are very kind and i always strike up a good convo with the bud tenders as they know the strains that are recommended personally for my needs. i HIGHLY recommend the twitter deals as they only make the clinic better!
VBCC is the best SHOP in Venice ! The flower is the most beautiful I've seen in a while, greatly trimmed and smoke smoothly!
“SPIDER MITES! Was gonna buy some clones and I checked for "problems" before I walked out the door, good thing I did. Full of spider mites, they acted like it wasn't a big deal. Said they'll be getting more clones in and then put the clones back on the shelf for some other idiot to pay $20 a piece for then have there whole garden destroyed by the worst form of evil that could ever enter your grow!! I'm a little upset with the level of professionalism from them, if you're a dispensary you should have better standards for your patients. I bet they would sell moldy flowers and not even think twice. Never again will I go here.. ”
“This is an excellent one stop shop for everything you need. Everybody here makes you feel at home, from the front desk security guard to the budtenders. Their menu is filled with lots of great flower off all types and price ranges. Every gram and eighth is trimmed beautifully and ready to smoke. They really take the time to have a conversation, show you the product offerings and find the best possible medicine. On holidays and other special days they have patient appreciation discounts with free food. Overall, you'd have to be crazy to go anywhere else in the Venice/Santa Monica area.”
“THIS IS THE BEST DISPENSARY IN LA COUNTY. PERIOD!! I say this for a number of reasons... first of all, their customer service is POSITIVE and KNOWLEDGEABLE. I was so sick and tired of these second-rate, fly-by-night, poorly-run storefronts. Kiss those dark days goodbye! The staff at Venice Beach Care Center are professional and friendly, and above all they are sincere - major kudos to Laura and Natalie - There are A LOT of items on the menus, anything from primo smokes to delish edibles, also vapes, and these ladies guided me thru a positive & laugh-filled experience, making the whole thing easy, and even educational!
I'm a Sativa dude myself, and they were stocked to the brim with all kinds of goodies - from classics like Sour D, to some of the rarer gems like Lamb's Bread. I picked up 1/8 of Platinum Jack Herer, and the smell is just sensational, and the nugs are juicy, real plump and sparkly. This is a MAJOR IMPROVEMENT over the crap I used to get at other places. Recently I've been flirting with hybrids, so I also picked up a gram of their Dutch Treat - it's exactly as my bud-tenders described...I felt really elevated, but I'm not spinning off my tracks! If you like OGs and Kush, they have a long list of great mellows, some mild and some intense. You basically get what you pay for here.
I recommend parking on Flower (cross-street just south of Rose) - it's a long stretch of residential parking, no permit nonsense and no time limit - definitely look for parking there before you try your luck on Lincoln.
I'm absolutely coming back! I've never laughed nor learned so much in a professional cannabis setting. They also throw in a legit pre-roll for spending over $75, so I'm about to sign off with a grateful puff of this here Mandarin Mint joint ;-) Peace!”
“A longstanding, (8+ years) favorite location which is my "goto" when I'm down from Norcal. Always carrying the finest in flower and a great staff interaction and attitude locale. Highly recommend...and do frequently,, knowing that over the years my product was on those shelves...
“Not too happy with my experience - I left feeling sad and irritable (at the same time). The service on the phone was great. In person, at the store was disappointing and insulting.
1. Man at door checked me in. Shoved iPad in my face to take a photo without asking permission or even notifying me that this dispensary requires it. No other dispensary has made me take a photo.
When I declined, he yelled at me (I'm not exaggerating) about causing a problem and then basically told me to shut up. Not very caring.
2. Woman at counter was helpful but then took the liberty of keeping my change from my donation. I would prefer to determine the amount of gratuity I give to the "pharmacist" but it should not be mandatory nor assumed.
3. They did have 1 of the products I was looking for and I learned about another one that will be helpful in the future. I will be seeking my products elsewhere however.
I'm accustomed to being treated with respect most places I go especially at medical dispensaries. This place does not give care as their name implies, so...beware.
This is a an era where we will obtain our medicine from upstanding members of our culture in the light of day. Support civilized dispensaries that treat us with respect.”
