What to Buy: Lucid Dream Flower by Swell

What People Are Saying:

“I’ve been here a few times, I like the flower, the deals, and the fact they have a gluten free brownie for my celiac ridden self…but all that is nothing compared to the way they treat people. There are many examples of their kindness I have witnessed, but what has struck me was the concern the entire staff expressed for a patient they found out is in the hospital. I saw a budtender give his number to a stranger just so he can be posted on the well being of a patient…not a friend or personal acquaintance. 5 stars isn’t enough to rate their top notch service.” —vonstrap
