Just started coming here really liked this place but they had me wait for 30 mins and kept letting other people go in before me! They have good bud but that right there made you lose a customer!!! I always spent good there and tipped too! Damn man now I gotta find a new place 😡
Hi Andy, we are sorry that you had a bad experience while waiting. Unfortunately, on our Patient Appreciation Day Sales, we do a 25% OFF discount with no additional taxes added, and because of this it tends to cause a longer wait in the earlier part of the day. Sometimes we have to call outside for a patient, during those longer wait times, and sometimes some patients dont hear when their name is called. We never have any intentions of letting people cut in line, and our employees make their friends and family wait in line like all the patients. If you would like to discuss more, or have any other issues in the future, please come and talk with our manager so that he may be able to appropriately deal with any problems you may be having.
i been coming here and only here for the past 7 years. i been to other places but non compare to C.H.A.I. Ths staff is always awesome and friendly . i been seeing everyone get hired throuh out the years and they are all good people. C.H.A.I has the best meds around everything they sale is high quality at a affortable price. Their flower menu is 2 diffrent prices not like other others that charge a diffrent prices for every single flower. thank you C.H.A.I for always being there for us .
Love the variety of concentrates they have and you can't beat the price!! Very friendly

I've always loved the bud here, the only thing about this place is the staff is unfriendly. You can tell the 2 older men in the store hate their job, one of them actually was mocking the way I talk. I personally get bad vibes when i go in.

In the interest of keeping this review short and to the point, I'll try and keep this brief. I could go on all day about how great the staff is and how fantastic the customer service is at CHAI, but if you've been there, you already know.
My review is about the medicine. Particularly the flower, as I can't speak for the concentrates. I'm an old school patient and dab rigs and torches and extraction methods are something I'd rather not deal with. I like to keep it simple.
I've been going to CHAI for almost 3 years now. In the past, CHAI has consistently provided the best medicine that I can find in Northern California. That includes the Bay Area, Sacramento, and central coast. Slowly, over time, that has changed. That's not to say that other dispenseries have gotten better, but that CHAI has lost its way.
I don't know when they started to offer light dep in place of their usual indoor quality, but it has been happening for a while now. This type of flower, if you're not familiar, is grown in a greenhouse and covered with tarps to simulate the 12 hours of darkness needed for flower. It's a slight step in quality above outdoor. Yields are much higher, but quality suffers in effects. Looks and smells the part, but has none of the punch of actual indoor grown cannabis.
I recently (4/11) tried some Kosher Kush, which has become a staple for me, (a 33 thc percent strain) and it had all the characteristics of light dep as well. This is too bad because the transition to light dep has made this the only strain I will get from CHAI. I went back and picked up 3 other strains to see if I could find some indoor. Platinum Cookies, Area 51 OG (shoulda known better. Alien OG sucks) And Fire OG. All looked and smelled the part. All taste EXACTLY the same and have the same weak, short lasting effects. (I don't smoke blunts. Bowls only in a frequently cleaned glass piece)
The online menu hasn't been updated in over a week, you can no longer get test results at SCLABS, (SCLABS says this is for privacy reasons) and to be absolutely clear, no mincing words, the quality is now TERRIBLE. I will stop in now and again to see how things have shaken out, but for connoisseurs, CHAI is to be avoided.
I am sorry that you had a negative experience here at C.H.A.I. Let me reassure you that the strains you listed are indoor sourced and we do not carry any light dep or outdoor cultivated products. The Kosher Kush, Area 51 OG and the Fire OG were cultivated by the Santa Cruz Veteran's Alliance, and they only cultivate indoor cannabis. You can check out their instagram account at: @scveteransalliance IF you have any concerns regarding the products they cultivate, I am sure they will discuss their methods with you. The Platinum Cookies is a 3 time award winning strain and cultivator who, also only cultivates indoor cannabis. In the past we were able to have cultivation sites in this county that allowed us to produce most the quality products that you remember. Unfortunately the county has taken a tough stance against cultivation, and we are waiting for them to draft and finalize the cultivation ordinance. Do not let this deter you please as we are in the process of doing whatever we can to get cultivation back to where it used to be, so that we can continue once again to bring you the quality that you remember. In the future, if you have any concerns with product quality, we can better address your concerns and help you to have a better day if you talk with us in person and let us know what the problems are. We strive to carry the best possible products at the highest possible quality. We never cut corners by picking up lower quality inferior products, all the products that we carry are indoor sourced and we pay indoor prices on everything.
Only drawback is the lack of updating the concentrates section of their weedmaps. I end up wasting both mine and the budtenders time asking to see products which are no longer available.
in a world of fraud, fakes, and losers, i found the guardian angel.
The Lucky Charms in me opinion is their best flowers. I also enjoyed the Platinum Cookies and Gelato (which is purple).
they still hook up the 8ths a couple points over too. you get 4 8ths and you end up getting a free gram almost.
Every time I come to Santa Cruz this is my number one spot to come to. You guys are awesome. keep up the good work
