A great dispensary. Top quality but not cheap. Delicious vape though, best quality/taste of all three local dispensaries. Great staff and environment!
They where very helpful and treated me very well, I'm glad I went here
Good atmosphere. Picked up a large vape for 180. It took some reasearch to figure out how to get the oil to saturate the wick correctly but once I got that down it works great. Expensive but so is every other place
Had the first appointment of the day on a Wednesday. The woman at the counter did not look happy to see me at all. Did not get much better from there. Sat around for 10 minutes, even though I was the only person there. The woman who did my consultation was knowledgeable and was able to answer my questions, at least. About the only good thing to come of my visit.
They only offer a discount to people with Medicaid, so unless you have a bit of an expendable income, you're not even going to be able to get any medicine. My needs require around $1000 of medicine a month. So, I'm barred from the program, after struggling to get enrolled in the first place.
Makes it even more frustrating that the only way to become a registered operator in NY is to have at least $2 million in assets. And "for profit" is written into the law. So these companies already have millions at their disposal, yet when it comes to helping patients, it's the almighty dollar that reigns supreme. Not one's conscious.
Hopefully things change and this program becomes more accessible. Right now it seems like a program run for the well off, by the well off.
Very good dispensary. Be sure to have all necessary items (MM ID, doctor's certification, other photo ID). They take cash and debit cards (though the latter incurs a fee). The layout is a bit odd - lots of empty space. Very friendly and helpful, and the product worked well (I use the pills and the oral spray). Open 3 days a week (Wed-Fri).
Bring your paperwork with you from your doctor's office. The pills work good. The Vaporizer not as good or maybe I'm not doing it right. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The hours are Wednesday- Friday. Walk-ins are welcome.
