SWITCHED TO HERBAL ALTERNATIVES FROM ANOTHER DIEPSNARY IN DC BECAUSE THEY WERE TOO HIGH AND THE STAFF WASNT VERY EDUCATED ON PROPERLY TREATING PATIENTS. HERBAL ALTERNATIVES IS OFFICAL! FITS MY BUDGET WITH MONTHLY SALES. I CAN PARK NEXT DOOR FOR FREE & ALL OF THE BUDTENDERS KNOW THEIR 420! GLAD I MADE THE SWITCH TO HERBAL ALTERNATIVES
Thanks to these guys I got my DC Medical Marijuana card pretty fast! The team is very gracious; I've been here twice in two weeks and they even remembered me by name.
The prices are very reasonable and the bud is fresh and it's there for your viewing and smelling.
I look forward to returning again this week!

Herbal Alternatives was at the National Cannabis Festival back in April educating the attendees on the benefits of medical marijuana and the process to obtain a medical marijuana card in DC for DC residents. Not only was staff on hand but patients of the dispensary to ask honest questions about the dispenary and joining the program. Talk about keepin' in 100!
It is now June and I have my card. Thank you to the team at Herbal Alternatives for guiding me through the easy process and following up with the DC DOH on my behalf in receiving my card in a reasonable time.
Now on to my review ---
What I liked about their location is it's convenient to my downtown office. It's actually
on the same block as one of my go to lunch spots; making it convenient to pop in to get my medicine.
The staff there is super friendly and nice! Very knowledable. There not there to sell you anything but to help alleviate whatever medical condition you may have.
I was told each month that there are atleast 2-4 strains that "go on sale" that's like $5-7 off the original shelf price! WINNER!!!
The budtender noticed my birthday is in July and told me that when I visit next month I get a "birthday gift" from them. I'm counting down to my birthday ---- love marijuana and love FREE!
I also like the fact they're only closed one day out of the week. So, six days of access makes it that much more convenient for me.
No cash on you? No problem. ATM on site with a VERY low withdrawal fee.
Cheers to Herbal Alternatives & success on many years to come in servicing the medical marijuana patients of the District.
I would like to thank David for helping me solution to a new world I knew nothing about and the rest of the staff

Conveniently located right in the middle of downtown DC, Herbal Alternatives offers an excellent combination of affordability, availability, and selection that really works for me as a patient. They stock several strains and concentrates from all five DC cultivators, so they always have a lot to choose from! Their flowers are never pre-packaged, so customers always have the opportunity to see them fresh from the jar before purchasing, which also means they are weighed and packaged in front of the customer at the time of purchase to ensure complete satisfaction. Their prices are always the same as or better than the other DC dispensaries and their entire menu is posted online and updated frequently. They also have a terrific selection of high-quality glass pipes, bubblers, and bongs that is actually more diverse and less expensive than most local “head shops.” The staff is super friendly, helpful, and professional; they really go the extra mile to make their patients happy at this dispensary! Thank you Herbal Alternatives!
I want to know if you sell marijuana for recreational or medicinal use?
The people who work at Herbal Alternatives II are awesome! They are extremely helpful and offer great suggestions. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!
