It all depends on what works best for your personal symptoms. The tenders are trained to know what effects each medicine produces. I told one tender my symptoms, and they stated "oh you're backwards...I have just the thing" my Dr doesn't even realize that with ADHD your body functions opposite to medications a lot of the time. ..and my first visit The tender knew which would work best.... her recommendation was spot on! I go back regularly because of this. Still.... I've found better bottom shelf results than top at times, thinking price equals potency is folly. Go by your symptoms, and i bet you get what you need!
hit or miss with everything from quality to staff. over the past few years a lot has kept changing; they dropped a lot of their deals and have been very rude here and there. some budtenders that have been there for a while can really make me smile but sometimes they are seemingly irritable. the prices are pretty consistent, but the bud is definitely not laways the best, i have known several people to go in and come out completely unsatisfied. i don't come here as often any more.
nice atmosphere, solid bud tenders, good bud, great edibles, the prices are a bit on the pricey side but regardless a decent place to visit and the bud tender
lindsay is pretty cute.
used to come here all the time. variety seems to have come down a lot. seem more interested in making the money, there isn't a sense to want to stay for more than 2 minutes. it's get in get out. a lot of it is way over priced as well.
Easy in easy out. I've been here a few time and have no complaints. It's a store that sells weed. Whats to complain about. Nothing stands out that keeps me coming back to JUST them. I'll also go to Queen of dragons up the street and I'll have it delivered from Nor Cal Medicine man. At the end of the day all I care about is that I've got my medicine.
I visited The 530 from out of town (from the bay area) and they visibly could tell I was needing assistance. Used a wheelchair dealt with me being emotional because of the pain I was going through as well as drs telling me to be in bed instead of go to my friends wedding in Redding. They wheeled me around and they made sure I got the most effective edibles for the wedding as well as being soft or liquid bc of my diet, they made it happen. I am (to their credit ) spoiled with meds bc of where I live, (price, quality, etc. but I did only buy the $10 gram but it was popcorny, but smelt and tasted great! I will be making them my club every time I visit my family in Redding. Thank you so much for what you did, you're a blessing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I have been to dispensaries all over Northern California, including the Bay Area, and never have I been talked to the way I was today. After months of exclusively using this collective, spending a minimum of $500 -1000 a month on average, I will never set foot in this place. The budtender I had was someone I never encountered before, was attempting to be 'helpful' but telling me what strains I should use even when I explained they exasperated my chronic illness; she basically kept saying I was 'wrong'. That was only part of the argument...the other was me asking about another strain they didn't have because my caretaker had seen the sample I brought back before and suggested I get it again (she asked if my caretaker was registered or a member of the collective, because I only mentioned them seeing my meds...didn't know someone LOOKING at my meds was illegal). The point here, she was not at ALL treating me with the compassionate care I have come to expect based on past experiences in nearly EVERY collective I have ever visited (including this one). The really awful part was when I called to complain...the manager proceeded to lecture me on how this is her 'job' and that I had no right to be upset. Really? I am a patient, who came in sick looking for meds and all I got was interrogation, aggravation and then being told how dare I "threaten" to write a review or tell my friends how I was treated. You beat your ass I am saying something to all the people I referred to this collective! Apparently the manager is a bio-engineer? Up to date on the 'ten thousands' journals published weekly so they k ow what is better for the patient, than the patient? As someone who has treated their chronic illness for 20 years (mine was an original illness covered under 215), I think I know what strains work and what ones have caused such inflammation I couldn't get out of bed (like the 'top shelf' strain the budtender was trying to push). No thanks. I can take my business somewhere else.
the people where friendly even though i got there just before closing on a sunday the sing up process quick and easy they gave me a good tour of the medication room the flower selection was lacking a little i would like to see more of a selection they had allot of other medicine to chose from when it came to edibles and tinctures and the smoking accessories selection was nice to i'm definitely going back again
They should change Bud Quality to Quality Bud when it comes to the bud at the 530 collective in Shasta Lake. In addition to the bud, they have a wide range of edibles and concentrates for anyone in need of relief.
The staff at 530 is first-class. I've been in there many times and have always been treated with respect and kindness. The staff at 530 also has a great understanding of their product's and the potential effects of each. They all work well together and are fun people to be around. Thanks 530.
530 is a sight for sore eyes indeed. From the bud to the bud-tenders it all looks good.
Daenerys has always scared me, I'm not ready to face her dragons yet so I go to 530 collective. I really enjoy the variety of medicine at the 530. They do a great job of consistently bringing in new products. I'm always amazed at the next and best thing in the medical cannabis industry, and 530 seems to have gotten the memo. From top shelf, to hash, to oils, to waxes, to crumbles, to mids, to mex they got it a1!
The staff are all great. I've never had a negative experience with any of the people here, to the contrary actually.
I think the prices are reasonable when you take all factors into consideration. They are one of the only collectives for a lot of people in the area so naturally they win. And when you need top notch medicine (waxes, meddies, oils) you can't go to Willie Nelson down the street most times. Also, I don't mind paying the prices because of the aforementioned expansion/new products. I'm thankful that I can test these newer products out while the oppressed thc states like Oklahoma and Kansas have no idea. And lastly, 530 gets the job done for presentation. Everything is arranged very well within the medicine room IMO. The Sharpies on the black bags with the 530 logo are also appealing, even down to the labeling on the hash and other products. It's obvious there was time spent and thought being put into the more minor details of 530 which is why I'll pay the "extra" buck as some here would say.
The only qualm I would have about accessibility, is the lack of accessibility to some of the ladies phone numbers who work there. Too far...ok nvermind. 530 is a great club though. Highly recommended.
