How to Leave a Useful Dispensary or Retail Store Review on LeaflyRachel ChambersAugust 8, 2013
Did you love your dispensary experience? Want to tell others about the great service or fantastic inventory they carry? Do you have some feedback or pointers for other patients and consumers? You should post a review of the dispensary on Leafly! It’s a great way to say thank you to a dispensary and to let others know what to expect. Here are some tips on how to leave a useful dispensary review:
1. Be Polite
Don’t post personal details or make assumptions about a business or its staff. This is a public resource and cannabis can still be a sensitive subject, so try and respect others’ privacy. We understand that not every dispensary experience is positive and we don’t discourage negative reviews, but there’s no reason to get nasty!
Don’t write reviews full of offensive language or all caps rants. We want to maintain a high quality of content on our site. Use your words to offer constructive criticism, not meanness.
Don’t pick fights. If you don’t like what someone else has to say, write your own review instead of calling someone out because you disagree with him or her.
2. Be On-Point
Keep tangents to a minimum and stick to reviewing the dispensary and its offerings. We know getting good cannabis can be inspiring, but you don’t need to use your review to air your thoughts about marijuana in general, or use it as a platform to rant about running into the guy from high school you hated at your favorite dispensary
3. Be Honest
Your opinion is what matters. The more you share about the shop, the service and the products available, the more informed we can all be. Did you think the place could use a little sprucing up? Or did you really dig the artwork they had on the walls? We want to know and so do other potential visitors! Feel free to say thank you to budtenders or let them know how they can improve. Reviews that simply say “Good!” or “I didn’t like it” aren’t very helpful. The more details you can provide about your experience, the better!
That’s it! Now you’re ready to tell patients, consumers, and Leafly fans all about your latest experience at a dispensary. When you hit ‘save’, you should see your review appear on our site once it has been approved. Thanks for being a part of the Leafly community!
