Folks aren't allowed indoors currently, so I can't speak to the atmosphere. The employees are super friendly, however, and, in spite of COVID-19 worries, are working hard to get folks their medicine. Thank you VPA staff!
Their vape carts are the bomb: CO2 extraction - no hydrocarbons, no strange cutting agents/mediums. The flower selection and edible/topical products are minimal but good - two or three choices at each variety point and also with a CBD dominant offering. Medicinal dabbers will be disappointed as there are no concentrates other than the CO2 extracted cart concentrate (which is what they also use in their edibles).
They discount your first purchase by $50 to reimburse you for your Vermont Marijuana Registry application fee. They also give folks with a verifiable hardship a 10% discount on everything. No sales tax.
If you're in Vermont and you rely on buying illicit cannabis to control a recognized medical problem, please talk to your doctor about obtaining a medical marijuana recommendation. In my opinion, it's the best way to ensure that you're receiving safe, high quality medicine, other than growing it yourself.
