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?!"
This was one of the first places I went to. At that time the place was nice but somehow it seems so stuffy now. Like almost too stuck up. My last visit my 1/4 seemed light the buds were pebble like instead of buds. They need to get back hat personal feeling.

First off. I signed up but the guy at the desk let people that signed up after me go before me which made no sense. Great customer service their buddy. Secondly, I called and asked if they include taxes on weedmaps and the lady said yes when that WAS NOT THE DAMN CASE. You're weed was harsh and over priced with the surprise tax. The reviewer under me must be an ammatuer light weight or just plain stupid cause I bought the bubba kush and it was not top shelf even though the price was. Tasted harsh and bitter no good flavor. F this place don't know how to provide customer service or decent product. You're better off going to CA Collective 30 seconds down the street... scum club

Yo i went into this place expecting to find a spesific strain i was told about, turns out i was at the wrong dispensary. However I was very impressed when I walked into the sign in area not to mention the actual inside, very clean, well organized, very helpful staff, the bud tender that was working helped me to choose the bubba and I was very happy with his choice thanks guys
The club has the best top shelf cannabis! I love their cheeba chews and their plastic marijuana pens!! Super clean club and friendly cannabis consultants.
In and out world class service... was in a lil bit of a rush and the tenders knew exactly what I needed thank u see u soon
