Buddy’s Cannabis represents a new class of medical marijuana collectives. We grow about half of our flowers at our indoor, onsite garden, and work exclusively with a select group of artisan farmers for the rest, all to ensure that our members enjoy only the freshest high-grade cannabis. Our professional and knowledgeable staff is committed to serving you. We even thought about the little things - like packing our flowers in glass jars with airtight lids.

This club ruined my first experience here, never will go back. STAFF ARE IDIOTS. Have no clue what’s going on. Taxing on basic weed. Please close down this club is garbage I can’t believe they were in businesses before. No medicinal care, all recreational now
Hello there, We apologize that your experience at Buddy's was less than perfect. We take customer service very seriously - please contact us with the experience you had and we'll do our best to make it right. Additionally, we unfortunately do not have a choice in taxation rates - all taxes are established at a state and/or city level. We do currently offer both medical and adult use sales.
Over the past several months, I’ve been to Buddy’s a lot. I’ve noticed a few things during my visits. I’ve seen a lot of the same patients coming in, and more of the budtenders recognized me over time, even though I’ve never talked too much with any of them. I’ve seen budtenders being really compassionate to some upset people (seen my fair share of tears in here, which is not surprising, because people turn to cannabis in hard times). It seems to me like the budtenders genuinely know and care about their patients and really like their jobs, which goes a long way. Last week was a mess in here. Reception told me that the wait time was hours long on the 1st. All the staff seems stressed and it seemed like there weren’t enough people to cover the crowds. To me, this seems like your classic tale of a little neighborhood shop that’s experiencing growing pains. I still love Buddy’s and I’ll continue to go here, but I hope they figure out a way to keep the same neighborhood vibe in 2018. ❤️
You guys are not my buddy anymore. Medical and recreational pay the same tax also?!? Buddy’s literally defeats all purposes of being a patient, no regards. Almost an hour wait for overpriced products. Always been a great place till now. Please cater to your patients that need your meds, not to those “21+” that just want it.
Hello there, Unfortunately, in the state of California as of January 1st, 2018, both medical and adult use purchasers are subject to the same state excise tax and local cannabis tax. This was not our decision - it became a law on a state level. We are in the process of implementing special patients only privileges, such as express lines; please bear with us as we prepare these new benefits and roll them out in the coming weeks. We highly value our patients and thank you for your patience with us.

It was super crowded and I had to wait awhile, but it had lots of parking. I was finally called to the budtender just to find that the 65$ price of the cartridge listed on weed maps for honeyvapes was raised to 75$ and ontop of that, the first time patient 10$ off a purchase of 50$ or more and 2 free pre rolls were NOT INCLUDED. The budtender was fantastic and extremely helpful, polite, professional, and patient and had asked the manager about it, but the management did not follow through with both what was written on weedmaps and what has been their first time rewards for a long time. Be wary of pricing on here, it's not updated. Still feel cheated about the 10$ price increase ontop of the reaping of the 10$ off and 2 pre rolls. 2018 sucks so far.
Hello there, We're sorry for your less than perfect first experience at Buddy's. The first week of California's cannabis prohibition lift has been exciting new territory, but also a challenging regulatory time. In addition to properly organizing our information online and training staff on new practices and regulations, we will also be rolling out new benefits for our patients - stay tuned for these changes, and please let us know how we can make your second experience with us more enjoyable.

I didn’t realize it would be so crazy to get meds... I don’t know what to do anymore. Getting in the shop is a effort with all the masses of people there. It’s stressful for someone with PTSD... and a list of other conditions I don’t have to mention. I can’t wait 45 minutes, I’m disabled. It’s the reason I have my medical card and now it’s worthless. I use to come to buddy’s and have no one inside around 5pm on a Wednesday, but now I think it’s see the lasts of those days. I don’t want the business to be hurt and I’m all for making money. But I am a PATIENT! Please be accommodating. It’s all we can ask for.
Hello there, We've very sorry that you've had a less than perfect experience here at Buddy's. The new law changes here in California have been an exciting but chaotic time for us - we're currently developing new strategies and perks for our patients, which should be finalized and rolling out in the coming weeks. We value our patients very much, and want to show you that. Thank you for your patience with us.
stopped by buddys today and picked up some white cookies! omg fire. thanks buddys for the rec!!!
such a great selection and everyone working there is so helpful and friendly!!! definitely will be here regularly
I work far from Buddy's and decided to wake early to get my goodies. For whatever reason the place is packed. I explained to the "I don't give a fuck" guy in the front desk and he couldn't care less. Most likely I will end up going to work late and with no goodies since I ran out of time. I'm so mad right now I wish I have never come to this place.
Hello, We're extremely sorry that your experience this morning was less than stellar. While our wait times are typically about five minutes, during special events like our senior discount Wednesdays or during vendor sample days, wait times can vary. If you're unsure or in a hurry, we highly encourage calling our store number for the approximate wait time. Again, our deepest apologies for the sudden spike in activity and the long wait time this morning.
Great people, good location, killer bud. Always recommended. friendliest dispensary in San Jose!
Thank you Buddy’s for making the perfect medicine in such a tasty treat just for me. Very friendly staff, quick and speedy service.
