I would like to begin this review by saying that part of my 16 years of customer service experience includes former experience as both a medical and recreational budtender, which included training/educating newer budtending staff at one of the biggest, oldest dispensaries in Denver. I have been involved with and treating myself and others with medical marijuana since the first time I came to Washington, in 2007. I am a demanding customer. This is because I am not merely a CUSTOMER; I am a medical user and thus a PATIENT, looking for the proper MEDICINE to best treat their particular symptoms, at an affordable price. So, perhaps sometimes I expect far too much out of these recreational shops... But, in my experience as a recreational budtender in Denver, I noticed that many of those shopping at recreational counters are looking to treat specific symptoms, and it helps them to do so if the budtenders are good at their jobs.
I had been going to a different place here in Port Orchard and making large purchases, more than half of which consists entirely of a cbd blueberry concentrate, which has an excellent cannabinoid ratio for treating my particular symptoms and is $25, at full menu price (which means that it's even cheaper if it's on sale, or if you're using a discount you can get from their loyalty program). However, it's nice to get some more variety than they are able to provide, so I found myself at the 420 Spot Shop, looking for something different. I must say that I was NOT pleased...
The 420 Spot Shop has a pretty big menu, so I thought it might be easier and provide me with more insight/information to simply walk over there (I can't drive anymore, because I started having seizures after developing PTSD after a couple of friends' suicides.) and talk to a budtender about what they have available at a good price. When I arrived, three budtenders were behind the counter, and there were not other customers... So, I assumed it was the perfect time to have a thorough look at their selection, see what their best deals are, and find out what products they might carry with good cannabanoid and terpene ratios to treat my particular symptoms. I guess the budtender that was helping me didn't think it was... The others didn't seem to either.
I began my shopping by simply inquiring if they had any flowers in oz's which had a cbd:thc ratio between 2:1 and 1:2, or really close. They didn't have anything for me, and thus we moved on to concentrates. This is where I feel like the entire staff did the poorest job, as pretty much all of them, even the manager, (possibly the owner) who came out in the middle of my failing attempt to browse their selection (I really was literally about to leave without spending a penny rather than $165), had an opportunity to and, yet, failed to help me select the best medicine they had available for the best price, as I had asked them to do.
After determining that there were no good/affordable concentrates within my preferred cannabinoid ratio-range available, I told them I would simply purchase seven of whatever their best/cheapest, but more basic high-thc concentrates for dabbing-out with the homies and whatnot. But, I wanted to browse their selection and get some variety. (I'm not sure if I mentioned anything that would let you guys know, but this entire time, the girls behind the counter have ALL had this attitude, like I'm being some sort of pain in their ass and should've known what I wanted from reviewing their menu online, like I'm cheap and expect too much for too little, seem condescending and rude, and like they're ready for me to just leave, so they can go back to their conversation. They did not make me feel welcome. And, I found their condescending attitude hilariously offensive, because I was training better, more knowledgeable budtending staff than them, four years ago.) I was about to leave without actually purchasing anything, rather than the seven grams of cheaper concentrate, when the manager came out and started budtending. He actually started grabbing different, better grams than the budtenders had been, showing them to me, telling me the price I could get them for, and talking with me about the different strains and whatnot. I started just grabbing different ones and telling him I'd get them to dab out with my buddies, when he showed me an excellent looking one with great color that he said I could get for $25, which was testing at a whopping 95% total cannabinoids, but only 79% thc. However, it was only 1% cbd, so I think to myself, "This has to have a very interesting cannabinoid content." It tests at less than .1% cbn, but a full 3% CBG. The CBG is what makes this strain interesting... When I say it on the label, I said that it was interesting and, because I was curious if anyone would actually know, I asked the manager if he or his staff could tell me anything about CBG. He said no... It is a pretty rare cannabaninoid, and less is known about it than some others, but it DOES inhibit GABA uptake, making it an excellent treatment for the symptoms that I had indicated I was hoping to treat. I knew this, but know one behind the counter seemed to... This is where I feel the entire staff failed me the most, including the manager, Tim. I came in and asked for a great product with which to treat my symptoms, at a great price, and here it was in my hands. Yet, it took the entire staff, including the manager, quite some time to get it there. Perhaps if any of them had known much about CBG, they would have brought it to my attention sooner, as somewhat of a substitute for the CBD I had mentioned... Once it was there, I seemed to be the only person in the store who was aware it would likely be a suitable treatment for the symptoms I was looking to treat during the day, and why. I will probably be going back to this store to get this product again, assuming that they have more of it for me in the future. I wouldn't be sad to see different budtenders when I do, or at least learn that the ones that are already there have adjusted their attitudes and begun educating themselves in regards to the various chemical compounds in cannabis, and the effects of those compounds. Rude, ignorant budtenders will lose you potential return customers. This might explain why I was in this store so long, but didn't see any other shoppers...
This is MY FAVORITE shop! I highly recommend it to anybody I know who smokes. The prices are low and everything smokes amazing. The budtenders are great also, although Dwayne and Justin are my favorites. They really take their time to help figure out what I like, instead of rushing me. And they make the whole thing a fun experience everytime.
If you're in Port Orchard, this is the place to go!
I've been to over 20 legal marijuana stores in WA now, and this place is my favorite. The dudes in here really know their shit, they aren't rude, and they don't judge you if you just buy a gram or get an entire ounce. The vibe here is real, the workers are real, and the prices are real sweet. I don't ever leave the store without a smile. I rarely go to any other pot shops because this place rules! Thanks for all the kindness and wisdom!
"The vibe here is real, the workers are real, and the prices are real sweet. I don't ever leave the store without a smile." Wow, thank you! That is exactly what we're going for with every interaction we have with the public. It feels good to hear that you were served well by the employees here, they work hard to please our friends and customers. Thank you for your positives vibes.
Everyone is so nice and helpful here. Never have I been disappointed with the service here. Always good deals and good weed!
Stop it, I'm blushing. Jokes aside, thank you for your review. We work very hard to keep our prices fair (LOW) and get our people the weed they want, hearing that we continue to please even one of you makes it worth it! You made my day, thank you!
Great spot! Wish I'd stopped in sooner, the prices are great and the staff knows their products.
Very helpful, extremely friendly and amazing quality products. Will definitely keep coming and suggest to friends.
These ladies made my experience amazing. After working 37 hours in 3 days I walked in to get some bud & these ladies were so inviting and just had such a warm welcome! Beyond that, they are extremely knowledgeable about their product ! I'm usually very indecisive, but the information the continued to provide made my selection process so easy. Their menu is color coded for ease & the prices are great! I had an amazing experience here! Will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for your kind words, we definitely strive to provide exceptional customer service and outstanding quality product. On an unrelated note we found your id and a few other cards from your wallet. Hopefully you see this before you panic, we will keep it safe until you return. See you soon!
Wow! I love this place! Every one is so nice and the prices are the best in town! I brought some edibles down the streets at $16 while they were selling the same product for $13! When you smoke as much as I do $3 could go towards more weed.
Thank You! We work hard to get and keep the best overall prices around, I'm very glad you noticed our efforts! Try our $5 Cookies next time, or maybe one of our $6 Sunday Joints!
Favorite spot in town! Great price any day of the week and daily specials too. Very inviting place to walk into and be in, tunes are good and there is usually a sport on the tv. The weed is great stuff and the price range is even and broad which I really appreciated. There are so many different ways I can fill out a 20 dollar bill between edibles, joints and buds that everyday kinda feels like payday. Also... SO. MANY. STRAINS. I LOVE IT! Keep on keeping on man!
Thank you for the great review, we really appreciate it! SO. MANY. NICE. WORDS. I LOVE IT! We're glad you enjoyed the atmosphere, price range and selection. Come by and check out our $5 cookies and $10 grams for a few more ways to fill that 20. You keep being awesome!
