Review by Scott Steele

I've been a patient for about 3 months now, and there isn't one thing that I'd change. I always feel welcome, even at the end of the day, I never feel rushed. Highly recommended, especially for your first dispensary.

Excellent experience, professionalism, and a wide range of products to help you. The team is friendly and informative

Review by James Bernard

Terrible dispensary, I do not recommend. The employees here are too slap happy and obsessed with getting high and have no knowledge or willingness to help customers that are using Medical Marijuana for Medicinal purposes, but they have no problem talking about it's recreational effects. It is sad, because Marijuana (currently) is only legal for Medicinal use, and so you would think that the only people buying and selling the Marijuana would understand that, but their employees laugh and joke around everytime about getting high, and even some customers walk in laughing and joking too, despite them having serious medical issues which is what this product is intended for. It is completely disrespectful to those who are truly suffering from horrible life threatening health conditions.

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!
