Review by Katelyn Dixon

Best place to go for piercings, and so much more! Incenses, candles, regular jewlrey, unique items, etc, etc, the list keeps going! This place might not seem or look like much from the outside but one step inside and your mind will be blown! The staff are so friendly and help and go the distance to make sure each person is satisfied & if not they make sure to make the customers feel at home and cared for! And it's not an act or a thing for business they really are good people outside of the shop! They're naturally that amazing, generous, caring, and they take every customer serious & make sure to give the best possible service to anyone who walks through their doors! They turkey are the best place!! You go there once and I promise you won't go anywhere else ever again for what you needed!! They get a A+++ from me forsure! Love Captive Minds! Thank you Captive Minds & staff for all the years you've all gone above & beyond to make so so many people in our South Arden/Skyland area(&outside our little Arden) happy & always are beyond satisfied with their purchases! This place is definitely recommended and worth it!!! -Katelyn M. D. 💯💯

Went in because my tragus piercing had closed. Thought I would need to get it redone but he was able to save me lots of money by just reopening it for me! Very nice staff and very nice atmosphere :)

What is a Dispensary?

A dispensary is a store that sells special items or dispenses the specialized items. Cannabis or marijuana dispensariers started in the US some time in the early 1990’s when Dennis Peron opend the San Francisro Cannbis Buyers Club. Back then the cannabis dispensary faced a ton of hardships, but Dennis, his team and dream helped pave the future for all future recreational and medical cannabis dispensaries. In 2014 the first recreational dispensary, 3D Cannabis opened it’s doors in Colorado. As of 4-1-19 33 states have medical dispensaries and 10 states have recreational dispensaries.

At a dispnsary one will find many differnt kinds of cannabis flowers (buds) and concentrates, edibles along with smoking untensils, but have a limited selection compared to online shops like Elev8 Glass Gallery. The dispensary also will have what is called a budtender to help you find what you are looking for. If you need help with cannabis info Elev8 Presents is a good resource.

What is the difference between a medical or recreational dispensary?

In realtiy medical and recreational dispensaries are the same thing. This all comes down to the states laws on cannabis. We feel cannabis is just like alcohol and medical will happen first and then recreational will follow, and so far history is showing this. Dispensaries are an excellent place for patients and recreational smokers alike to find the cannabis that best suits their needs!
