Nice place

Stopped in yesterday and am glad I decided to visit this shop. Some of these other reviews are kind of odd in that I didn't experience anything negative in the least. But I like to check out most things for myself and on this day it paid off. Good selection of some pretty buds, about the same prices I'm seeing everywhere else, and Vanessa was a very helpful, pleasant person.

Really high prices, and grower needs some training

1 personthought this review was helpful!

Normally I go in there and Vanessa, the budtender, is very nice. She is very knowledgeable and very helpful and always makes me feel happy about going. The bud, however, is a different story. Their so-called "grower" doesn't really know what he is doing. I went in there one day and he was acting like a budtender. He suggested a strain to me and told me "Oh ya its good bud, and it has been curing for a while". Well, when I got home to smoke some, the damm bud tore apart like cotton! Not cured at all! Its like he rushes bud out just to fill the shelves when he should be letting the buds cure more. Then when I went in on Saturday, he sold me two grams and charged me 26 bucks! For two measely grams!!! Ya he gave me four back because they have this weird atm type system going on, but 21 bucks for two grams? He is the reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 for staff. And he didn't even make it fat. Come on dude. I normally get a fat eighth from my other dispensary in the springs for 25 bucks. I don't know what his name is but he is some skinny kid that should not be growing or selling bud. If they get an actual grower and drop their prices to compete with the other dispensaries, they could be doing soooo much better. I would have given 5 stars if it were just Vanessa. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't go back.

Good bud, GREAT staff!

The bud is good but wish there was larger selection. Yes, there were some seeds in few strains however the bud tender made sure I was aware prior to my purchase. I had just lost someone close to me on my first visit and needed something for my emotional pain. The bud tender Vanessa was very kind and patient with me and made some suggestions. I believe it was the Juicy Cheese and Hash Plant she recommended, it was RIGHT ON! You betcha I'm going back as well as telling other Park County folks there is a GREAT dispensary closer than the Springs!!

Great product, strange bud tender.

1 personthought this review was helpful!

I just went in to look around and see what they had. Bud tender started showing me different strains (all of which looked delicious) and then I asked about their bubble hash. I asked if it was full-melt or close to full-melt and if he's tried dabbing it. It clearly wasn't so he made up some strange excuse as to why no one should dab bubble hash even if it as advertised as full melt.

This guy literally tried to tell me that if you dab full melt bubble hash on a quartz nail (which I've done countless times) that the nail will break. Took everything in my not to call him a dumbass. I smiled, said "There's nothing like a dab of some good bubble hash" and after I made comment he just started ignoring me. It was really awkward so I turned around and walked out, thanking him for letting me look at the bud.

TL;DR - Good weed, dumb staff.

Wow

1 personthought this review was helpful!

First off, I must tip my hat off to their budtender Trent. Every time I've been there has been fantastic but he set the curve for my experience with customer service in the 3 years I've had my card. The building they are in is the collest spot I have ever seen a dispensary in! They had a nice little head shop, and said it was all locally blown too. Once I went into the dispensary I was floored. No shatter, but they still had an impressive selection of everything. Hash, edibles AND like, 30 strains on the shelf. I had to grab a variety when I saw everything, and ended up leaving with more than I planned lol. Their bud was amazing and I really felt like they were honest about what they do. I really wouldn't drive up that far regularly for my meds, but I'm sure it would be easier without all the construction going on. I visit the mountains often though, and like to plan to stop there when I do. I just wished they were in the springs.

Great variety and professional staff

1 personthought this review was helpful!

I have had great presentation, information, professionalism, and variety from this MMJ dispensary. They have provided me with courtesy and kindness every time I go in. There are some staff that I prefer to deal with as they have more knowledge that helps me with my selection but overall, they are a very clean and professional establishment. Unlike some stoner places that I have gone to that seem to cater to people that are just into the high and seem to forget (this appears to be an oxymoron in this text) they are actually at work to help clients! Good variety of edibles and the smoke selections have never let me down. The Owner seems to really care about the medicinal qualities of the products they offer and repeat customer satisfaction. You know, we all have bad days but the ones that really count are the ones that brings smiles to us and others. :)

Great selection, friendly people

2 peoplethought this review was helpful!

Went here yesterday for the first time on the way back from Cripple Creek. Budtender was really nice and knowladgeable. Had a fantastic stock of edibles. The potency of the edibles i got was great, hence the fantastic sleep last night. I will definetly be returning to Eagles Nest again. Dont worry so much about bad reviews, most people see through the BS that some people sprout out. I think it"s a reflection of thier lives. They will never be satisfied or wrong about anything. Personally i kick these people out of my buisness, dont need them. Good work Eagles Nest, keep it up.

Seriously a trap!!

1 personthought this review was helpful!

Don't go to this dispensary if you want decent bud.. The staff are douch bags and the heavy metal ' The Cult ' Look was completely outdated with the entire fuckery was a huge turn off.. Descriptions of better buds are coming in, taste like brown weed we were getting in FL. Don't buy the bottom of the barrel either you will be sorry.. Leafy tastes shit and not real medical pot.. Folks seriously there is a LOt more places you can go.. I'd hit Maggie's Farm before you go there and that's not even one of my most used... Pound for pound Eagles Nest is not a decent or even good store.. Take it for what it's worth, keep on going down 24 and pass it by....

official dispensery response

i would like to address a few "bad" reviews and clear some things up. for starters most of our bad reviews are from disgruntled former employees and their friends .yes we have had to let some people go in the past this business is very regulated and any misconduct will not be tolerated even if it is 2 weeks from Christmas.they should have thought of consequences before breaking the rules set by the state.
second i would like to address some of the reviews that were posted about the quality of our product after the waldo fire. the fire came within 75 feet of our grows and we were evacuated for 9 days. we lost our grows due to the fire and had to supply our patients with wholesale that we got from other dispensary's, that have great reviews and were assured it was their very top shelf. well the public spoke with their reviews on our page about the other centers we got product from and it was not good . well we had no choice but to survive and buy something that our patients hated as well, i apologize their grows are not to your standards and we had to bring you that quality for awhile.
we would like you to look past some of the petty negative reviews about our center and come take a look for yourself. we have many strains to choose from always rotating the shelves and keeping favorites in stock. we also have a big edible selection including the growing kitchens,beyond mars,stix and bakked at home. we also have a nice hash selection to include budder,flake,shatter,and bubble hash made by aj the hashman from our trim and flower.. thank you we look forward to seeing you..
