Have gone here for deals a few times. I know you get what you get with deals but when they label them as tops shelf sale deals that's where they're iffy. Seems like they trick you by saying that it's top shelf but in reality it's mid grade at best. unfortunate but I met Montel Williams last night so i guess there's that
Been coming here for about 4 months and haven't stopped since. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Greet you by first name and always ask how the product was for you. The quality of their product is pretty good too. Haven't had a bad batch yet. Prices aren't too bad either. I smoke heavy so I come here expecting to pay anywhere from $60-$100 and I feel like I always get much more for what I'm spending. Definitely recommend this place.
I like the fact that they have more pre-rolls than just the the "house" brand.
What could be better is the choice of other products. The limited selection of other items like edibles, candies, etc are limited to the small box at each register. Many other dispensaries have a huge variety of items to choose from, but not Caliva. But overall, 10x better than the others in the area.
This place, what can i say about it? Its run like a retail store they offere a myriad of products, needless to say this is not some place i frequent, its at best a nice introduction to a cannabis club. Service here is excellent, its just the quality of their product that throws me off, i imagine the decor was expensive. This is the kind of place that a new smoker would be amzed by. OG smokers steer clear of this place as you will be dissapointed and pissed at the prices.
This place is for that one "friend "who has only smoked vape catridges or something lol recommend that guy here.
This place is at best, an emergency stop from your usual dispensary.
really great selection here and the price breaks are good if you want to buy larger quantities. alot of clubs dont offer that. love it here. the staff is really friendly always and they have amazing wax and oil selections as well. love the LOB cartridge here and you can get them on sale sometimes. super cool spot!
I see why they were voted #1 dispensary in California. Nice peeps, excellent bud quality, non pesticides in their flowers and products which is really important to me and should be for all. Cool welcome package, free gift, for first timers. Without hesitation, my favorite spot in the Bay Area.
They have their own growers for some top shelf strains and also award-winning California growers outside too. No unhealthy additives, pesticides or crap like that to worry about. The staff is super knowledgeable. I've never been steered wrong by the growers or staff here. Super yummy cannibas, powerful, friendly, up-lifting sativas and nice relaxing, sleepy-time, on your booty indicas that do the trick for all tastes. Much love for Caliva. Some of the girls that work there are smoking hot too, no pun intended. ; )
In summary, this is my go-to dispensary in the Bay Area. Unlike others, they don't go over-the-top or have to sell you with cheesy gimmicks to keep or attract customers. The product, no pesticides, top quality bud and staff speaks for itself.
Used to be my spo. But the flowers changed. They started growing their own more and several times I was very dissapointed with what I paid top shelf prices for. So i tried their mid shelf, their in house chem i think it was, well it was worse, tasted bitter like nutrients, didnt burn right and the high left much to be desired. ever since then i have not come back. but i used to love that Leroy OG they have. Back when they first opened the Leroy was amazing! last I heard they are growing it themselves now and I tried it since and it was awful, unfortunately. really miss that good old Leroy OG
cool bud tender but the flower was dry af

As nice as this club is, the product is simply
O V E R P R I C E D!! It's one thing to have high prices when the quality of the product can back it up, but it's another thing to have high prices and the product not coming close to being worth it. Evidently this place is making the cut for some, but most patients I have discussed meds pertaining to this club with have expressed the feeling of being ripped off after leaving here, and many of the existing reviews conclude the same thing. They text out weekly deals but after all the taxes you still pay a lot and the product is still, not worth it. At the moment for instance, they have strains testing 11%-20%THC for $45,$50 and $55 plus tax. They do offer a $35 1/8th, but at 15%THC, what is that really going to do? I have seen $35 1/8ths of marijuana testing at 26%-29%THC at other dispensaries in San Jose. As long as I have been coming to Caliva the highest strain I have ever seen tested at 33%THC, that was once, and it was only in stock for like a week. Even the budtenders expressed how shocked they were at the lab results, they don't usually see high THC content here. I believe that strain was priced $50 at the time but was totally WORTH it! It was so good that I could put it out and have gotten pleasantly to the desired effects and then some, unlike their other strains - you can smoke a whole joint + a few bowls and still not reach the desired effect. In my opinion it defies logical and economical sense to pay what they're asking in exchange for what they're offering. Yes they may be getting the meds lab tested and whatever the case may be, but the patients should not be left to foot the bill for this low testing, overpriced, mediocre marijuana. How they come up with their pricing is beyond reason, rather it's true top-shelf or not they pretty much want $50. This club is waaaaay too nice to not be nailing it in every aspect. They're suppose to be the #1 dispensary and a lot of people, myself included, question how that's possible. Never once has it ever been crowded when I have come here. The parking lot more times than not has plenty available spots and there are like 1 to 5 patients in the dispensary. Only once was there a wait, but there were only 3 patients inside. That's cool if you are a patient that has a social condition/disorder that causes you to prefer a dispensary where not a lot of people will be. But the amount of people you see at a dispensary/business on average is usaually a pretty accurate indication of how good the place and product truly is overall.
If they ironed out the existing kinks, a lot more people would be in unanimous agreement that this club is #1 or at least one of the top spots...it certainly has potential. They seem to take pride in their dispensary. A lot of money, energy, and time were visibly invested. What good is a beautiful facility that makes one say "wow", excellent marketing and intriguing photography that makes one say "wow" and sign up to become a member...only to have marijuana that makes you say "what the f**k?!" and "are you kidding me?!"
