This place is a joke. Tried them out a little under a year ago and decided to give them one more chance since they are always pushing sales on their street sign. Smallest counter of goods I’ve ever seen in a retail pot shop though lol. Max of 8 strains to choose from, all of which smell almost the same like grass clippings/wet hay. Inspection of the bud doesn’t disclose much other than the fact that it was beat around during trim. I’m guessing they wet trim, possibly with a machine. Dry trim obviously is a better choice for smell and taste, but I can tell the grow staff has almost no clue what they are doing. They have a large grow here in Ridgway, not sure who is in charge but it must be their first time growing, and they been open how many years now and still can’t get good quality?? Where I work, the grow staff always comes in smelling great; I just do not know how that great smell gets lost other than the fact that they have lazy growers. They need to hire new people obviously

ive never written a review however ACME SUCKS! if i dissuade one person from getting cheated from here, its worth it. Nice older lady and nice set up but the product was like hay and the weakest concentrate. $80 and i didn't, alleviate pain or feel anything except having been robbed. The flower so bad $50 eigth i flushed after trying three hits. it literally felt like a cheep cigarette. Next day i went to neighboring clinic and got set up proper. Again ive never posted and have visited a hundred clinics already. Bar none this place is the absolute worst. and how this place stays legally operating is an utter mystery to me. Yes a tourist trap and bring a jimmy hat here in here my opinion as you. may need it
I have been to this location several times over the year and the bud quality has always been consistently high. The same goes for the staff. They are very nice to deal with and it's always an enjoyable experience. On the downside, be prepared to spend $75 for an 1/8 ounce of recreational bud.
Out of the three Dispensaries in the immediate area, this one has the best product, which isn't saying much. The other two are atrocious. It made my decision of signing ACME up as my caregiver fairly easy. They have the best variety of products and the best quality. No-brainer, right?
After signing them up, I was told I wouldn't receive receive member pricing until my paperwork came back to the dispensary from the state, which is fine. But then I go into the next room and the second budtender/notary told me I would receive member pricing on the first time. A little weird that the employees don't know the policy, but its fine. I got my member pricing and a sign up bonus, so I was happy... For the time being.
Fast forward about a week or two. I drive myself down to the dispensary (35 minutes) and have a different budtender than the first two tell me I couldn't receive member pricing until my paperwork came back, forcing me to forgo the edible I desperately needed to instead purchase a 40$ 1/8th which should've cost me 28$. I was upset but there was no one else present in the store, so I left, feeling incredibly disappointed.
Fast forward another week, to today, when I decided to call and see if there was a way I could be notified when my paperwork was good to go and I would receive member pricing. I did not want to pay 40$ an 1/8th again. I was told that I should've received member pricing the last time I was in. The rep on the phone acknowledged that it was a mistake on the budtender's part to not give me member pricing, citing the fact that "she's not around much". So I asked if I could be compensated for the mistake as I'd basically been swindled out of my money from people I'm supposed to be able to trust.
I was flatly told, "no". No discussion. No talking to someone else who wasn't a lowly budtender. No compromise because they messed up. It was just no. I'm a firm believer in companies taking responsibility for their mistakes and actions. This company didn't do that in the least. So now I'm here, trying to let others know how I've been treated in the hopes that someone will see it and rectify this ridiculous mistake.
This is not illegal sale, this is a business and it should be treated as such. I'm not your "homeboy, coming over to pick up some weed". I'm a patient and customer of what should be a legitimate business trying to purchase medicine. I'm horrified by this treatment and now feel like I'm backed into a corner because the other dispensaries in town are terrible. I don't want to sign up with them, but I may need to because as of now, the thought of spending my money at ACME makes me cringe.
If ACME mans up and takes responsibility for their business and their customers, I'll think about taking down this scathing review. Maybe
While visiting Colorado, I found this place. It is nice to be able to enjoy quality herb without the legal issues.
Some people will complain about the prices, but legal weed came with a price. The state collects a hefty tax on it. Such is the price for legal weed.
The quality is great, one hit and I'm a baked potato.
I also tried a chocolate toffee cannabis bar about an hour before going to the hot springs in Ouray, and it was just the ticket to relaxation land....
Anyway, thanks to the staff at Acme, I will be back next time I'm in SW Colorado.
Walked in there once, saw what they were charging and walked right out. Nice the MJ is legal and available, sucks that many retailers are so damned greedy. Keep driving over to Telluride. Better prices, better selection and about half the price.

Okay... Where to start. So i am your typically 19 year old who has seen everything clinic and weed wise possibly imaginable. I live in california and colorado so you can say im quite experieneced in the weed world. But i was looking for a random clinic to get some bud from and i went to this place and i have never been more mad/humiliated like i was when i came here. These theifs only had 4 shitty strains and charged me 75 FUCKING DOLLARS for an 1/8th.....just let that sink in for a second. These people couldnt care leas about me, ALL THEY WANT IS YOUR MONEY! And they will do anythin to get it, like selling their customers shake buds and making people pay up to 80$ jut for a measly 3.5grams....comon guys. This place is just pathetic, they should be wiped off the face of this planet. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Id rather t-bag a bear trap than go back here!!!!
P.s. Was there a way to give less than one star on the ratings? Like a half star? Or possibly no stars at all because this place doesnt even deserve to the right to be on weedmaps in the first place.

I am a medicinal cannabis patient both here in Colorado and in California.
I used to go to Acme healing center often, and would receive excellent service as well as quality buds.
However, as of lately, everything has gone to shit. The last time I was in there I was informed that I can not be served anymore because I am under the age of 21. RECREATIONAL USERS NEED TO BE 21, NOT ME. I AM A PATIENT. It is clear to me now where Acme's priority stands; Taking as much money as they possibly fucking can from their community. I understand that they make double the amount of revenue off of recreational patients, but I truly feel disrespected. I have a chronic illness that is killing me and I was turned away solely because I wasn't old enough to buy their OVERPRICED recreational buds.
Acme, as well as many others both in Colorado and California, are only in it to make money. They could give a shit about how chronic your illness is, or how YOU actually feel. To them, its, "Sorry, we're just not making enough money off of you.".
Have fun telling other patients under 21 who are struggling with illnesses such as leukemia or terminal cancer that you will no longer serve them because they aren't worth it to you.
I hope your dispensary burns to the ground, you money-hungry pigs.
Great bud selection! Also, some wonderful edibles. I have to recommend the drink mixes, amazing! Staff is very friendly as well.
