Yeah the staff is okay but the bud is truly not that special. Got some headband... didnt really do anything. Got some blueberry kush... tasty but really dry and crumbly. And i have to be completely honest: the free pre roll i got was the WORST tasting joint i've ever smoked in my ten years of smoking cannabis. I'm telling you the absolute truth, I actually thought it was tobacco at first. I'll give them credit, they have sales very often, but i'm starting to wonder if it's because they're having trouble selling such low quality bud... i feel like this place has so much potential, please step it up AHC.

I've been to AHC about 5 times in the past year. Cool place and staff. On Friday, I went to purchase 7 grams of the Chemdog. Looks and smells pretty good. However, I've already found one seed which is a bummer.
The only thing I'd like to see this place do is test more of the medicine they bring in. I'm sure it's expensive but it seems like the right thing to do for the patients.

HANDS DOWN BEST DISPENSARY IN THE COUNTY!
I have been to every dispensary in Sonoma County and nothing beats Alternatives. The atmosphere is unbeatable, the quality of the bud is amazing, and the extracts and edibles are always on point. Upon entering you get the feeling walking into the living room of a nice house. They have super comfortable chairs to sit on and all kinds of reading material. The staff is always friendly and super laid back. They remember your name and never try to speed you along. I have been here many times and explained solely what I want to feel like and the employee always takes their time to find the perfect bud. I have never been disappointed with what they give me. Its like their marijuana psychics. The price of the bud varies but even the cheaper stuff is always tasty and organic. The more expensive stuff (cheap compared to the crap at the other clubs) will blow your mind. Then there's the wax and shatter, which I have no idea where they find. It is the best and they always have exotic strains that i have only come across in different areas of Cali or in BC. My favorite is the CBD glass. It completely relaxes your body and and makes your muscles feel like butter (completely removes any pain you are in). The edibles and beverages are endless. I never was a fan of edibles until I found this place. They have a giant selection and everything is so good you forget your eating weed. If you have never been here you need to go! It is what every dispensary in our state should model itself after. Plus they have a reward point program so the more times you go, the cheaper everything gets. Last time I checked the top reward if you build up enough points is an oil pen or an ounce of some top shelf bud. In any case, once you go the first time you will never want to go anywhere else. In conclusion, it is the perfect club. What makes it stand out from the rest is definitely the atmosphere and the staff. Trust me, you will love this place!

One of My Favorite Places Around

I have been a longtime customer of this dispencery. They may be a little pricey and I have seen the quaily of the product go down a little bit since my first visit, but all in all this place is wonderful. Stolked with one of the genuinly happiest staffs ive ever seen at any establishment, this place is always a joy to visit. The staff is also very knowledgable in what they sell, which has always been a bery big key point for me personally. Everytime im in the area and have my choice of what dispencary i want to go to (depending on what i want to pick up) this place is usually #1!

The staff is koo nd the building is pretty nice on the inside but their bud is kinda expensive for the quality of it. I like my weed to be potent and it just didn't do it for me. I'm not tryna knock them cuz the people we're really nice but I gotta be honest.

Quality has gone downhill...
1 person thought this review was helpful!
I'm a little bit surprised by the high rating the club has received. I've been going here since their old location on Santa Rosa Ave., and I can assure you the quality of flowers has declined dramatically. They are either trying to sell mid shelf, mediocre flowers as 'top shelf', or they simple really don't know what top shelf quality is. The Dutch Treat was the only flower that is top shelf. But all the other flowers are really lacking. The OG Diesel had powdery mildew on a few of its leaves. I'm positive it was powdery mildew, and it was found on several buds. They either don't inspect their meds good enough, or they knowingly put flower out there that has powdery mildew. I'm not bull shitting, I know a lot of people spread lies, but really there was powdering mildew on this strain. I'm upset that they think they can ask for those ridiculous donation rates for mediocre flowers. I'm guessing they are not paying that much per lb for that quality, then they turn around and try to charge patients $50 and $45 an eighth.

Friendly Staff , but overall dissapointing.
The staff are really nice and answer all questions competently. Cool atmosphere, chill, relaxed and unrushed. Aside from that everything is super expensive. From the edibles to the bud. They don't have any deals, discounts, or really any incentive to come back. I ended up just buying some pre-rolls and they put them in a bag unsealed. It also made it hard to differentiate which joint was which. What if I picked an indica strain for nighttime use? When I get my prescriptions from the pharmacist they don't mix my blood pressure meds with my cholesterol meds. If this is suppose to be Medical MJ for Medical MJ patients then it should be treated as such. Last but not least there meds are not tested. If they are there are no percentages for THC and CBD. As a consumer I would love to know what I am buying. I probably won't go back and I live around the corner. A friendly staff just isn't enough for me.

The best dispensary I've been to yet
High quality bud, good variety, and I always feel like they hook it up fat (compared to the other places I've been to anyways). It's a super cute shop, the atmosphere is inviting, and the staff is super friendly and knowledgable.

My Favorite Dispensary!
Out of all the dispensaries that i have been to, Alternatives is my favorite. They have a nice selection of bud, concentrates, edibles, topicals, and tinctures. The staff is very knowledgeable about the high of each strain, and which strain best suits a medical condition. I have had a quite a few interactions with Cody(: , and he has made Alternatives my favorite place to come. He, along with the other staff, make you feel very comfortable. They are very friendly, and treat you as more then just a customer.
