Review by Tina Sanchez

It's been a year since I've done a review on high desert relief. They are still five star in my book. Everyone there are so nice and they care about you and your medicine. If you have questions they answer your questions with no delay. This is one of my top three dispensaries. I will continue to go to this dispensary. Hey people, if you agree with anything I have said hit like.

Knowledge, kindness and superior medicine, High Desert Relief has it all! Their flower is top of the line and highly effective, not to mention amazingly beautiful and deliciously terpy. I traveled 300 miles to visit this dispensary and was not disappointed one bit. I will definitely go back to High Desert Relief anytime I visit really earns its place as Albuquerque's best. I highly recommend High Desert Relief to any cannabis patient who wants top quality medicine at great prices. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Review by Jennifer Heifner

As a loyal customer since I got my first card 7 yrs ago High Desert has been consistently putting out beautiful, dense buds that would make ya cry! You never get airy buds with lots of stem between the popcorn buds, just wonderfully dense buds that are well cured and sticky. Terpene profiles available on their website is great to find the perfect strain. They have the best prices around and is the only place that adjusts price according to quality. Like new buds, popcorn buds and all the way down to shake. Some spots charge full price even if they're down to the last crumbs! GREAT prices on glassware and accessories! Do yourself a favor and and check it out for yourself!!!!!!!!!🤩 P.S to "I'm always right", your SO wrong on this one! Other places charge 75 or more. HDR was voted best prices, too!!! Nobody is always right, nice attitude!

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!
