I love Blum, It may not be the fanciest storefront in town, but they have by far the best selection of meds. The flower is flameeeeee and they have good deals. Also service is really fast and friendly. My go to.
As an oakland/alameda resident, I visit this establishment relatively often; the main reason I continue to come here is the excellent customer service I receive EVERY Time I come to the store from the security, the receptionist, the front desk, the hash bar and the flower/edible counter. Blüm Oakland's flowers are a little pricy, but you definitely get what you pay for in quality; they also sell some pretty decent mid grade (14-20%thc) flower 8ths for 20flat after tax that change every 2-3 days. They offer a pretty good extract menu and Most of their extracts are reasonably priced with potentcy. They also offer 1$ cash-back-points for every 20 you spend (which Definitely adds up and it comes from every purchase you make 20$ or not) and you can use your points on anything in the store. #Iwillbeback
Best place so far I've been too love there deals and flowers will be going back soon
Haven't had bad weed from here ever! Concentrates are top notch too... it's a win in my book
Go anywhere else. Overpriced average quality buds and rude staff never going back
I usually come here to buy pre rolls and flowers. I love the $5 pre rolls! I'm always 100% satisfied every time i buy them! The flowers are always top notch when I buy them. My favorite place to go!
This place has gone from kind of shady to down right awful, either they got new owners or got in trouble. They have a line out the door, but it's mostly the equivalent to dime bags. If you want anything to buy something you have to wait in the concentrate line, where there is only 1 person working. Then you have to go to the flower line and start waiting again. (But wait, not all concentrates are concentrates so make sure you don't mess up the lines.) They do not honor their products, I got a cracked cartridge and didn't even bother returning it because I watched a guy grovel in front of me last time for something that wasn't his fault. The security is also an issue, if you carry a cardboard box of (presumed) buds they wave you through no ID, to just wait on the bench. The geography isn't getting better, and the security guard is there to protect the place from the customers, not the customers from the environment, and they make that well known- especially those customers that would dare try to exchange something (see above groveling guy). Sucks, because they carry Spliffin.
Hi Nicole, Thanks for your thoughtful review. Security is always one of our top concerns, and our presence and security has helped the entire neighborhood. We just want to let you know that we are now offering an Express Line for patients that already know what they're purchasing (like Spliffin! ;) ).

They don't accept out of state IDs. I had my recommendation and was turned away at the door. I understand it's a policy but none of the other storefronts in the area seem to have a problem with it. so just a heads up, if you don't have a California ID then you can't get in here.
Hi PZ, That remains our policy until the letter of the law is officially clarified. Compliance remains a top concern. That being said, since you didn't actually get to experience what our dispensary has to offer, we feel a 1.8 rating is a little unfair. We hope you'll reconsider your review when our policy changes or if you move to Cali.
A couple of weeks ago, an employee at Blüm initiated an apology. I was invited in to receive my change. They threw in some extra things for me to try. Of course most of them were expired. But whatever. I appreciate the gesture, glad they came honest, whether or not they agree. I'm willing to give another shot at some point.
TC, Thanks for the update to your review. We're glad we were able to resolve this unfortunate situation.
The neighborhood surrounding Blums is a shambles. If you drive in you may not notice. If you walk, bike, take public transit you may have seen disturbing signs of a downtrodden community. It's unsafe location makes Blums a rarity in dispensaries. Can you name any others.
Although Blum is in a neighborhood that has been through some tough times, our very presence has improved the neighborhood and we are proud to be a beacon in the neighborhood. We also have security and secure parking for our patients.
