Great Bud, Expensive Edibles
First of all let me start by saying out of the four staff I encountered only one of them seemed friendly, and he (Coleman) is the only reason I'll probably come back just because he was so friendly and helpful and I'm hoping that other staff I didn't meet are that way. The front desk person seem really uninterested and not excited or friendly like you should be to new patients (First impressions are important! They set the tone!) the security guard at the main entrance didn't even say a word to us. No "Hello" "How's it going" nothing. Their papers that are required for new patients ask for a bit more info than other clubs. They want your Doctor's name and phone number, what you can offer to the club and what activities you can do with the club (I thought this was a tad strange). The bud they have there looks and smells nice, the bud I received (I bought a 16th of 3 X Crazy) smelled great, but the container it was in also produced it's own smell because it seemed like a cheap thin plastic. Their edibles are overpriced to the extreme. A 60MG edible was $15. I could have bought an edible with higher dosage for $8 (150MG) and their $5 edibles are only 25MG.. their prices don't make much sense to me at all on that. One thing I was really impressed with was the glass they had for sale. Nice thick glass with an extremely affordable price. Nice big bubblers were $40, and small bubblers were $15. I purchased a bong on the smaller size for $30 and it came with a really basic downstem and bowl. I think they should offer upgrades on the downstem and bowl as both are just the ordinary bowls and downstems you would find in a smokeshop. Overall CBCB is an OK establishment. There is definitely room for improvement.
Room for improvement
CBCB has some issues, in my opinion. The biggest ones are: tax not being included in the price, they cut down the buds so they're all small, and the staff is not very knowledgeable. I really don't like that tax isn't included in the price. Anytime I buy something, I feel like I'm overpaying, because I buy top shelf and it's almost an extra $5 a lot of times. Almost all of the other clubs include tax in the listed price, which tells me it's possible and they choose not to. The last 4 times I've gotten flowers from CBCB, the display looked nice (big, frosty buds), but when I got home and opened the container, it looked like shake/popcorn buds. I'm sure they're doing this to get the weight EXACT so they can make more money. I've learned that if I have a question about a product I should just Google it, because I never get good answers from the staff. I had a question about a tincture a few weeks ago, and the answer I got was, "I have no idea." This has happened many times before.
In my opinion, the only reason to go to CBCB is if they have a strain of flowers you really want. Unless you are prepared to drop a lot of money on concentrates, stay clear. The $20-30 concentrates are all dark brown and don't look appealing at all. Sometimes you'll find a nice gram of wax on the lower end, but unless you are going to spend $45, go somewhere else for your concentrates.
My go to for nectar
I like the points system no.1. I always get a free roll with a purchase over 60.00. I have had their Karma wreck that they made in house--was pretty delightful. Cherry AK 47 was also on point. I just tried the LSD and it smells lovely for sure! couldn't touch the bud before i bought it and noticed it was super dry--but goes far in the grinder. The taste is perfumey--which is the only down fall. Maybe it wasn't cured right? I probably wouldn't buy LSD again.. but they have amazing selections! I like that the collective feels community based..many events take place and has a cozy feel to it.
Friendly staff and even the budget strains are pretty good. Also close to Bart which is awesome.
My go to spot when I'm in the area
Always smooth experience when I'm visiting. Chill atmosphere.
Customer Svc LACKING!
This review is not an indicator of all the svc person there however the AA female in the black dress on 6/13/015 was the worst! This was my first time at a dispensary and I'm not a long time user so I was looking forward to getting some education on product. As I stood in line I observed the customers in front of me getting full explanations of differing products-encouraged that I would receive the same I was then called by another sales person. OMG! I asked about getting a mild indica and asked for suggestions. She brought ONE variety Full Sun OG, She never asked me what effect I was trying to get-I explained that this was my first time purchasing and needed more information to that she replied "well its our lowest grade so its not usually that strong". That was the extent of her imparting any information. I purchase 1/8th-she gave me a first timers joint and a cookie.....both will be giveaways since I have no idea what strain is in either. After I left I realize I should have asked to have another person assist me. It was a very disappointing visit-I will return but I will NOT allow that individual to assist me and hopefully leave more educated.
Y'all need to include tax in your prices

All the other dispensaries do. End of discussion.
This is hands down my favorite dispensary. The staff is friendly & helpful & you can get pretty much anything you want. Whether you're looking for a decently priced half or a top shelf eighth, they're able to help you. Only time I go to another dispensary is when I'm on vacation. CBCB is where it's at!
My Berkeley Favorite
This is always my first option. The best is when you can park on the property but finding a spot in the neighborhood is not a hassle. Security is great and staff is awesome. Bud is always the best quality so sometimes you have to pay up for top shelf flowers. Wide variety of concentrates and edibles are always available. Different services are held daily and I'm happy to use my student discount here.
How do I love you let me count the ways

I came in mad and left happy as hell. The bud lookd like some fire fire flame. The guy at the front was cool hella paper work though one minus. I must say the highlight of my trip was my budtender. With her pretty self. I think her name was tyler or tayler I couldn't really hear cause some guys were playing live behind us ( :-/) She was legit hella smart got me set up nice with doobies and edibles. this place is endless I could spent days there. Everyone just looked hella nice and chill ( hella stoned) but I loved it! And they have 100$ OZs!! In other words come here.
