Unfortunately Poor Quality In All Respects

1 personthought this review was helpful!

I first left this review just a few days ago, on the Botanacare 21+ adult use weedmaps site. That site no longer exists, and neither do any of the reviews; unsurprisingly, most of them were quite unflattering, and this one was no exception. Do yourself a favor and read it; and before you ask, yes I'm a MMJ patient and yes I've also been to their MMJ store. The review is still very accurate, though the pricing information is a little different, and the incident I reference at the end occurred on the 21+ side. Keep in mind that I posted the review below on April 25, which was 3 days ago, and their 21+ page on weedmaps was still active. Now, the review in question:

I'll be honest, I want to like Botanacare. I really do. They're close to me geographically, they have stereotypically stoner employees, and they have a really nice store now that the new recreational side is open. But I can't like Botanacare, and here's why:

First, they're charging way too much. Why would anyone buy 1/8th recreationally at $45 before tax? You can drive the 20ish minutes downtown and pay 30% less. The pre-roll prices seem more reasonable, until you see their pre-roll. It's smaller than my pinky finger. Once again, multiple dispensaries sell pre-rolls downtown that are around 1g and are comparably priced. Is the convenience of not driving downtown worth the markup? The answer is no.

Second, they don't take care of their bud. They insist on storing it in plastic bags that breath too easily, and so all their buds end up being excessively dry. Any seasoned smoker knows that overly dry bud burns too quickly and is a harsher smoke than buds with a proper cure.

Third, they insist on using packaging (those plastic bags) that is not compliant with the law for exit. That traps you; either buy a special bag from them to transport it (it costs extra, of course) or you can't actually exit the building with what you just bought. Hidden costs are awful and obnoxious, and not what anyone wants to experience. Plus, next time you shop there what if you leave home without your special bag they sold you? Then you have to buy another one. Bonus points for being really frustrating: they also no longer accept the white bags with zipper seals. That would be less frustrating if I hadn't been given the bag at another dispensary specifically to transport my purchases in compliance with the law.

Finally (and I debated whether to include this), they do not have their customer's welfare at heart. We had friends visit from Texas last month. One of them is not interested in smoking, but wanted to know if a topical would be effective. Shopping at Botanacare, she was discouraged by the size of the bottle. There was so much, she wouldn't be able to use it before leaving the state. The salesperson encouraged her to purchase the topical cream, and (illegally) transport it across state lines and back home. Let that sink in for a minute. That's right, the salesperson was so interested in making a sale that she was willing to advise illegal behavior (in fact, interstate transport is technically a federal crime) in front of 3 other people (myself, my wife, and our friend's husband). That's not someone you want selling you buds; in fact, that's probably the last person you want selling you buds.

In a nutshell, every transaction at Botanacare I've ever had felt like dealing with the shady-looking wookie-foot tourhead selling pot in between cars at a Phish parking lot scene. Don't do that to yourself. Go to a good shop, there are plenty in the Denver area.

First timer under 21.. Good experience

It took me forever to find a place that expects Medical Patients under 21. I called and the lady was super friendly and totally welcoming. It was my first time and I was a little nervous. I thought I would be over whelmed, but the lady was totally cool. She helped me out and referred me to some new flower. Which I believe will be my new go-to. I will definitely be returning to this location.

No

I visited this place yesterday looking for a new place to try. I won't be returning, they only had 1/8th in weed and not an amazing selection. I then ended up paying 60$ for it all, I think that was a Lil pricey. Not a great visit but the weed does get me high .

Great Experience

Staff is helpful. My purchases were explained thoroughly because I'm new to the state. I'll be a repeat customer, for sure!

Some Damn Good Nugs..........

This place has "kept it real' for a long time. Buds and service. The internet was down and service was fast. These Ladies know their business And the bud tenders were quick.. Quantuum has a good heavy high and nice features.. Romulan smells good, and the buds are dense and hairy. Very stoney bologna. Thanks....

KMart

Ok product, awful service. Tried to look at the o-pen strains and the lady wouldn't let me look at the variety of strains available. She said "they're all the same" pointing to a bin of sativa, hybrid and indica cartridges. Awful service quality, the woman clearly had no interest or knowledge of Cannabis.. That said the bud quality was ok, hurt a little by getting prepackaged in plastic baggies.

Best in Northglenn

These ladies are an excellent example of the way a dispensary should be run. Great selection, very tasty flower, and a great staff. Their daily specials are a great price, and the Northglenn location is perfect for us that grew up in the North Metro area.

Treating Huntington's Disease Symptoms

1 personthought this review was helpful!

After talking with the owners about salves, ointments, edibles and reading a LOT on the web, I opted for registering for the MMD Red Card. PITA but will be worth it. I don't smoke anything so we discussed edible brownie type sleep agents. I am trying the BOSS sleepytime brownie. The single brownies is cut into 18 smaller pieces. So far 2 pieces about an hour before bed work. Full sleep, without any residual symptoms the next day! I do not care for the smell but big deal. Break off the sleeping pill habit. Also bought some cannabis salve for my arthritis joint pains. Seems to be working to keep aching pain under wraps. I will schedule a personal visit to talk about HEMP OIL as I am anxious to try! 100% recommended if you live north.. :)

Flower is still the same... potent!!

1 personthought this review was helpful!

There are certain things we don't like about this place since they went recreational. With that said, they still have some of the best flower in Colorado, and it appears the prices have come down a bit even. We picked up a gram of some separate strains, notably the Chernobyl, ChemDawg, SFV Headband, and Blue dream along with White goat. All are tasty and potent, but the packaging was old school dealer days. But all the strains are fantastic and potent. The last couple hits aren't that great indicating an improper flush, but hey, you can't be perfect. The owners are knowledgeable and truly care about their medical patients. It's tough with rec/medical, but still feel they care deeply about the medical patients. The care in curing the flower is evidence to this fact. We will continue to be back on occasion to try their wonderful, plentiful strains. Keep up the good work ladies!!
