Visited today for the first time and I know I definitely will be coming back 🤗
First thing, they have amazing deals on their flour. You have a lot of choices in all categories. The staff are helpful and friendly. A true shop for the patients.
The last time I went here was last week because it was the closest club near where i was. I saw that they had a $100 oz of Lemon Drop, a strain i know to be usually a high quality strain. So i thought that i should check it out. First off, they had it in sandwich bags. I was kind of thrown off by that because all of the mmj clubs i have been to over the years have always put oz's in an inconspicuous bag to not draw attention. It had big buds with a bit of trim and it had a light smell. I wasn't trying to take too much time figuring out if i shouldn't get it. It looked alright and i didn't have much to spend, so i got it. When I got home and i really looked at the weed i saw that there were a ton of seeds. So i pretty much got an 1/8 of seeds, a 1/4 of trim, and the rest is alright. I know i bought it and am not complaining about that, that's my fault. I'm just mad because i didn't get any warnings about it having a lot of seeds or else i would have just bought a high quality 1/8th
I love BASA, I live on Hayes and they are Professional , and I love all the BoB Marley Products , they are open at 8:30 mornings .. I mean you really can't get any better.. there is Barbary Coast at 8:00 am.. But I live in the FILLMOE!! THANK YOU BASA
Is this place beautiful? No, but the lines pretty quick moving so you won't have to look at it long. How is the staff? Helpful and kind, though some are a little under informed on the products. That's being said they have a parking lot and street parking is pretty abundant which is super nice. The products have been good quality and compassionately priced. So are they my favorite? No, but they are super convenient and I visit at least once a month.
Ha, some of the reviews are funny, people be trippin. Basa always been cool with me and is a spot I hit up a couple times a week. I never been shorted on a bag, sometimes its over depending on the budtender. Prerolls are cheap, good quality and burn even. Last week they had a vendor in the lobby and I bought one cartridge, and got one free. Free $30 in my pocket. Buds good quality, budtenders are cool, most know their sh!t and prices are low. Parking lot is small and I got blocked in by some fool for 5 mins last time I was there, but its all good
The selection and prices at BASA are on point, pretty sure they are less expensive than any other club in the City. I have gone a few times and they have been out of a few things, but the budtenders always recommend something else I can try and I haven't been disappointed yet. Its a quick, get you in, get you out pace and I appreciate that because I am usually running late and need to be somewhere. Tried delivery the other night and have no complaints. Order was right, driver was friendly and they were at my door in less than an hour.
Easy to get to? Check.
Later evenings? Check.
Great staff? Check.
Good selection... pre-rolls are the sh*t!

This is my type of dispensary - no frills, no illusions, low prices, quality product and killer selection. What Basa lacks in curb appeal, they make up for in other areas that matter more to me. I been coming here for years and love the neighborhood feel, friendly budtenders and wide selection of quality products at lower costs than any other dispensary I have been in. I travel a lot for work and have always been nervous to bring my medication with me in the air. Basa just recently started carrying a nitrogen sealed flower brand named Prophet and it is an answer to my traveling prayers. I was a bit sketch at first because I couldn't see or smell the flower, but I am pleasantly surprised with the quality inside. Basa is my goto club in town.

Good prices, knowledgeable staff, convenient location. I've never been disappointed with quality of flower. This is the only dispensary I've ever found that I can go in and buy $3, $5, or $8 worth of product for when I am short on cash and want to get medicated.
