Say it ain't so...

I pulled some Blue Widow and Grape God from this place about a week ago on the cheap. Really good. Early morning 0830. Two women greeted me I'm quite sure w/out enough coffee to get a day started. This didn't stop the ladies from being helpful nonetheless. Very happy with the two strains and delightful staff, however was told today no flower left. Bummer. Good thing I retain my plants. How does one sign over 6 plants, come to the place to grow them for u, and voila! Your plants are gone. Humidity? Buy a damn dehumidifier. Multiple if needed. How many people did you let down today just to give an excuse to jack prices up. You failed your people today. You don't have to be a soothsayer, or a prophet to see what's coming. Same bud; higher prices. And there's nothing I can do about.....O wait a min. I can remove my contribution to the cause by 500-600 dollars a month by growing my own. I know this isn't an option for a lot of people. I wonder if the happy buddha realizes this as well. I'm thinking some kinda collective grow in the woods. Land isn't that expensive right now. Small fee for security from each caregiver. A lot less than your average monthly weed bill and hands on growing if you want or you can designate someone you trust and know or get to know. I said it here first. It is written. You get your own square to grow in. Access to QUALITY genetics, seeds, knowledge, and clones without going thru the mail. Much like a community garden. Pot is not all you can grow there either. Fuck farmville. How about dankville or loudtropilis? How about all the things it was supposed to be w/out the money ruining everything like it's slowly doing here and everywhere around us? Next is corpirate greed. It's coming to pot. It always follows the money. And I'm not to happy of the thought of a Monsanto pot seed, but it might be inevitable. I digress once again. The happy buddha can, in collaboration with other dispensaries, be out of pot to in fact drive prices up again and again and again. For as long as they want. And people will pay as long as they have to. And they know it. This is the same shit pretty much every other business in the world does, and they call it "good" business. Good for them. Not for you. We don't have to take this garbage. We really don't. We just have to keep our foot on the snakes. Keep them out of the garden. They don't belong. Hell, grow other food as to gain farm substudies as to get your tax money semi back. Helps pay for the land, irrigation, electricity, machines, ect required run a garden/farm. Seems like this has been done before. If not....wtf? Y not.

Weed costs more than advertised

Called in beforehand and asked exact 8th price + tax, turns out to be 22 something with first time visit. So I brought $22 and change in and once I got there they said they had to charge more money for the bags they give it to you in. This brings the actual 8th price to ~25, which is nothing special compared to other dispensaries. Felt pretty deceptive to tack on an extra price, especially when I had called in beforehand to ask for the exact price.

Diamond in the rough?

1 personthought this review was helpful!

So this is my first review, I'm hoping it's helpful, but we'll just haveta see!
I'm going to start with accessibility, and continue based on the visit to try to keep it in chronological order, so try to keep up with me!

ACCESSIBILITY: I really did have trouble finding this place, but thanks to WeedMaps it was easy. I know that sounds cliche, or like an ad for WeedMaps, but i swear it's true. They are located in a sideways strip mall thats kind of hidden behind another building. There is a tiny sign on a block out front for the strip mall, but it only says "Happy Buddha" from what you can read driving by. And when you get into the lot, its almost a guess which unit it is, unless you see the tiny sign in the window that says "Happy Buddha Wellness Center". Luckily when i walked up, a budtender was outside (i can't remember her name for the life of me, names aren't my strongsuit) and asked if i was looking for the dispensary and led me inside. I would highly suggest improved signage, both above the door to the location, and add something to the sign out front identifying the location with MMJ. So this category had to recieve a 2.

ATMOSPHERE: When i walked in, i was not shocked, nor was i amazed. It's just a little shop that sells some medicine. Theres 2 glass cases with edibles, wax/shatter/kief, and prerolls etc. Behind the case was a shelf with about 12ish strains in large jars. I don't know about you, but i love dogs, so the 2 large dogs wandering around (a Boxer and a Husky i believe) didn't bother me in the least. Especially since they were so very well behaved, they even sort of improved the atmoshpere a bit. But like i said, i love dogs, so you might not share this same opinion. The menus/prices were pretty clearly displayed on papers posted on the wall and shelf; but i would say they lacked a professional look to them, or some kind of uniformity between them. I'm going to personally give the atmosphere a 4, but if i take out my personal bias with the pups, i would say a solid 3.

STAFF: When i arrived 2 of the 3 budtenders were outside doing a task, which, like i stated earlier, helped me find the location. They happily led me inside and were very friendly. The gentleman showing me the buds (again with the names...) was helpful, he pointed out the flavors/scents of each strain, explained the high of each. He answered all my questions (i had quite a few, i'm annoying, i know) with no hesitation. The other budtenders were making smalltalk with me during the cashout process (my odd initials, EEE lol), which made me feel like a priority. Too many times have i gone to a dispensary and gotten completely ignored by everyone except the budtender taking my money. Without question i give the staff a solid 5.

PRICE: Being a first time patient, i recieved member pricing. They were currently doing $15 eighths (which i later found out was also a 4 gram eighth) so i purchased an eighth to sample their bud quality which i'll get to here in the next section. The prices are pretty good, and they seem to do deals pretty often. i would just urge the staff to put your deals on WeedMaps so we can see the deals before coming in. Price gets a 5.

and last but definitely NOT last... BUD QUALITY:
For the best results, I'm going to actually smoke this bud for the first time while writing this section. So while i'm working the grinder, I'll touch on the strain i purchased for this review. I got an eighth of Purple Voodoo, because i LOVE purple, and god i wish i could show you a picture because it is just that: PURPLE. It has a subtle hint of dark green and it is covered in orange hairs, with a nice crystal dusting over it all. A very beautiful bud, that has an earthy smell with a flowery kind of scent mixed in. Overall a dark scent, not extremely pungent, hopefully not foreshadowing the flavor as such. Well here goes.... Very smooth smoke with a sweet almost grapey, earthy, dark flavor. Oh did i mention this is a hybrid, and not an indica? no, not even an indica dominant. Apparently it's a sativa dominant hybrid, which is another reason this bud peaked my interest. The high kicks in softly, with a lively feeling, great for video games (I'm currently on Destiny) but also brings on the munchies. So in conclusion, for bud quality I'm going to haveta say a 4. This is only because of the other strains I was shown, the Purple Voodoo alone is a solid 5. The Lemon Skunk smelled earthy and not at all skunky, which was very disappointing as it is one of my favorites. A few of the other strains i was shown had unappetizing smells, and just didn't have the look you want from primo buds.

Overall, Happy Buddha receives a 3.8 out of 5.
This won't be my first choice for dispensaries, but i would, and in fact i will, visit again. The price makes it a great deal, but the bud quality does seem to suffer because of it. If you're looking for a deal, or wanna find that diamond in the rough (*AHEM* Purple Voodoo), then head to the Happy Buddha.
