Garden State was the second D' I visited (Breakwater was the first) after securing my license ....& man, did I suffer sticker shock! Garden State Dispensary, in my experience, is priced higher ($141 per quarter) than any other D' in Jersey. In some instances, the difference is only a few dollars (A quarter at Green Leaf is $133.90 I think) but in other cases....such as when one compares Garden State to Compassionate Sciences, the difference can be quite significant; $85 per Q' for those who can claim financial hardship, and $129 for those who do not get the discount.
How's the medicine? It's okay. I have read comments deriding Garden State for falsely advertising and grossly inflating the THC count of their strains. Some enterprising patient sent a sample off to a lab and received ....to him/her, alarming results. Who did the testing? How did the lab assess the THC count? I'm no expert, so.....I researched this issue. The manner in which you test for the THC count can cause that value to vary, often....quite significantly. The State of New Jersey uses ONE lab, and experts in the field have stated that NJ's testing is antiquated and often inaccurate.
I'm not sure what the answer is, but I do know that their medicine did not relieve my discomfort as effectively as that of other D's, and their med' is not priced aggressively. To the best of my knowledge, Garden State does NOT run specials as a way of making the meds more affordable to those of us who are NOT independently wealthy....& that feels unfriendly to me.
The staff are, overall, nice. I did, much to my dismay, encounter a couple of unfriendly and less than helpful BudTenders at GState....they were not forthcoming with information about the strains and what the possible effects might be. "Everyone responds differently," I was informed. Not helpful. Give me "Overall, people feel...." or "Based upon the feedback I receive from patients...." But there was none of that. ...And in an industry that, despite being a decade and change old in NJ, is still finding its way with only 6800 or so registered, licensed patients....a little more empathy and direction would go a long way. As an aside, someone below states that the parking lot is a hazard. If anything, that dude UNDERSTATED the danger of pulling out into a State route from a dead stop. Unless you're a thrill seeker with a fresh change of underwear in the glove compartment....do yourself a favor and park in the adjacent lot, you're blood pressure will be an immediate beneficiary!
A little pricey but they are conveniently located. They return phone calls very quickly. Staff is very friendly I recommend GC, DS, and BW. Overall a pretty good dispensary, but coming out of the parking lot is kind of dangerous to get back on the highway so I recommend parking in the next lot. I definitely recommend.
used to be good, but quality tanked. they retested the strains and DS is 11%. we all felt the quality was going down, now it's proven
