Cool Place with Knowledge

5.0
Cannabis boutique that is very helpful with knowledge of their products. Helpful when my battery died on my vape pen. Replacement was very low price for the battery. It’s to bad that the city shoved the shops in obscure places. Not that the boutique is in a bad place., just few twists and turns up a hill. There you are in plenty of parking and few security guards, telling you can’t park here. Use to hassles from security and this time was different. They actually where trying to help me find my handicap parking. So, no hassles and decent people that know the products. Taxes..., lots of places that add the taxes, each county and city have their own add taxes to the state. Excise taxes are just for cannabis, state of California is lower the tax from 15% to 11%. But still it to high still adding City taxes is making the retailers make less than estimated. Oregon has the same problem and so did Colorado... Bottom line is this a great place to get the good brands.

Charles and his team at Columbia Care are true professionals. They have a great selection, and everyone who works there is friendly and knowledgeable. This is easily my favorite dispensary in SD.

Green Heart this place!!

5.0
I was just there for the first time, I loved everything about this place, starting that I was free to browse around without pressured, though, they did offer to help, and when I finally decided, they were ready to help. The budtender even offered me a much better deal, than what I had in mind. The prices are reasonable, taxes are high (not their fault) but I still got a great deal on bomb flower and concentrates. Definitely going back!!

Definite fake bad reviews; this place is the best

I’ve been going here for a couple of months now and never looked back. Better prices, super friendly and knowledgeable staff, and the selection is solid. So stoked that they finally opened not only a dispensary in PB, but the best one in San Diego, in PB!

Amazing place

I didn’t understand the low rating reviews regarding the place, this place is a go to if you’re looking for good flower and a big selection to choose from while also having good quality items if I’m a budget. Staff is really friendly if you choose to ask for assistance

Fake reviews? Here’s the real scoop

5.0
Can’t help but think the two reviews below me are fake. 1st visit - amazing 15% patient discount. Another 5% if you sign up for their deals database. Awesome store layout. Even have a clearance table and a place to take a load off for a quick second. Both staff I encountered were extremely knowledge and ready to help me fill a large order. Awesome selection of newer and hard-to-find 710 products. Flower selections represent quality at its finest. Manager and buyer Taylorr is active and present on the floor. Talking to customers, hearing their wants , wishes , and expectations of their new neighbor. What more could you want? These people inform gracefully and with stern confidence. I almost don’t even want to write this review because this place is going to blow up. Location check , connoisseur concentrates and flower, staff , and design check and check. Typical taxes of a rec / med establishment. Inform yourself or cry about it . I will keep coming back. 9/10- same great service , ample parking , new offerings . AND 2 armed guards at the front. Love it

so this place is very lazy and it shows in Their weedmaps listings. ive seen employees sitting around the shop while this weedmaps listing is so unorganized and is missing a lot of love and attention. shame on the manager for the lack of info on the maps. its all avalable online. teach the employees to copy and paste. make it convenient for us buyers. sheesh. expect to pay 30 bucks per 100 spent as well in taxes.

I walked in and was not greeted. I walked around the store twice and was not addressed. one of their vendors asked me if I needed any help and I asked but he had no answers. this place is way too bougie it is a boutique dispensary and everything is overpriced Everything is prepackaged nobody is there to help you I walked out with no product

We apologize that your experience wasn't satisfying. We have an open retail concept where you are free to shop at your leisure unlike other dispensaries where you are corralled and forced to stand in a queue before getting any face time with a budtender who is probably looking to get you to make a buying decision as soon as they possibly can. At the very least you should have been greeted by our security team and receptionist upon check-in. We are sorry that you weren't acknowledged in the store but we do try and make sure everyone's presence is known. Yes, our sales floor is well designed but our prices are just as competitive as any other shop in San Diego with pre-rolls starting at $6 and 8ths of flower as low as $25. In regards to everything being prepackaged, unfortunately that is a regulation we have to oblige being officially licensed by the State of California.

Wont accept that you get the CA excise tax

Very rude staff. Tried to tell me at from being a medical patient doesnt matter and when i got inside the bartender lied to me and said that my coupon wasnt BOGO which it said "buy one get one free" he said " oh its buy 2 get 1 free" and i said no and his partner agreed with me.
Columbia Care California

Muzzysk, there are many benefits to being a medical patient versus recreational. With a medical recommendation, one can grow or possess larger quantities of marijuana than recreational users. In addition, if you are under 21, you must have a doctor’s recommendation to purchase marijuana. Senate Bill 420 (2003) authorizes individual patients (and their caregivers) to possess up to six mature or 12 immature plants and eight ounces of dried cannabis. Patients can grow their own marijuana, or purchase it from licensed dispensaries. Cities and counties may raise the limits on quantity if they choose. The basic medical cannabis recommendation does not exempt one from taxing. Only a county-issued medical marijuana ID card (MMIC) exempts you from some tax on cannabis purchases. A Medical Marijuana ID card is optional—patients do not need to get one to use medical marijuana legally, just a doctor’s recommendation. However, it can be very useful. Cards are issued by county Departments of Public Health and with that card one does not have to pay the county sales tax. Everyone has to pay both the state and city taxes after the legalization of cannabis in 2018. As for the coupon, we have not issued any coupons that had a BOGO deal on them. We had 25% off of Lowell and 20% off for Comic Con in print. We did have some Bogo deals running inside the store. If you still have that physical coupon, our managers and staff would love to take a look at it and resolve any issues. Hope that information helps. If you have any futher questions or concerns, please send us an email or give us a call during store hours! Thanks! Have a good one. -Columbia Care

Nothing different

Same as all other garbage licensed dispensaries. Stock grams of flower. Lazy inventory control don’t cater to tourists please listen to the locals you are supposedly serving. Stock grams of flower!!!! It’s a shame this industry is so quick profit driven. My neighbor has more options then these guys!
Columbia Care California
Pacific Beach
Hey Sensigrow, just wanted to let you know that we do have some 1gram options for our customers. We carry Canndescent, Heady, and Flow Kana grams in many different strains. Due to our grand opening, we sold out of a lot of product and you probably came by before we were able to replenish our shelves. The Bureau of Cannabis Control requires that every product being sold in a fully licensed shop to be prepackaged in child proof containers and tested. We unfortunately can't persuade or have the authority to have these cannabis manufacturers to package as low as 1gram but we are lucky to have the few brands that do! Hope that information helps! -Columbia Care SD
