“After shopping at a different retail place for about a year, I decided to follow the reviews and I found myself at Word of Weed.
First off, I was kind of thrown about how into the process the budtender who greeted me was. Apologetic about the fact that the leafly menu was a couple days out of date and they didn't have what I wanted in the quantity that I wanted; but what can you do. A good sign: they don't seem willing to haggle much at all, and their prices are lower than most of the other retail shops where you CAN haggle, which, at least to me, implies that they have the consumer's experience at least factored in to their business model. Secondly, they're upfront about the quality, at least as far as the THC content goes; their menu signs have percentages instead of pricing, and they use a tiered shelf for pricing, at least that I saw, that had the half ounce and quarter jars clearly labeled with the prices; yet another thing at least the other stores I've visited were lacking.
The budtenders' enthusiasm(there were two! of them helping me pick) didn't seem to be greed based but a genuine enthusiasm about the products and their quality. They answered all my questions without that just visible flicker of annoyance you tend to get with the typical jaded hipster stereotype that budtenders tend to emulate.
Its really just RIGHT off the freeway too, and while after dark it might be a sketchy neighborhood, they have their own parking lot in the back and the guy checking ID's looked like the kind of bloke you want to keep around for keeping the peace.”
You're review was a pleasure to read Gozaerian. We like the honesty and thought you put into it. If there is a product that we can bring in that you want to see let us know. We strive to have a very good top shelf for our discerning customers. - Alden
“Just left the store like ten minutes ago. Mat/Matt was cool, knowledgeable, and didn't skip a beat on asking me what I wanted and then making great recommendations. While it might not be the Starbucks of ganja shops, it was an excellent first visit and I'll be going back soon as hell. Also, it's the closest one to home, so.. ;)”
