This a great place and my #1 go to for my medical needs, but today it appears that i was overcharged even after I questioned the price. I bought an 8th of Royal Kush and an 8th of Pineapple both priced at 27.73$ on weedmaps. I was charged a total of 68.48$. That seemed a little high to me, when accounting for the 15% tax, I should’ve only been charged about $63.78. After mentioning the high price the bud tender instead just shows me the layout of how the new taxes affects price, yet the price I was charged was still higher than what it should’ve been. Its possible i may have just not have accounted for a possible local tax? I notice others have concerns with the new tax and being overcharged, it may just be easier to include the final price with tax on WM, since it’s pretty frustrating getting there with the right amount of cash, thinking the tax was included with the 27.73$ 8th, only to have an additional tax still to account for.
We are sorry the new taxes are so confusing. To clarify, you are correct when you mentioned the local tax. The local sales tax is 8.5%, which is added to each purchase. The 15% excise tax, and the excise tax, create an effective tax rate of 23.5%. We are working diligently to make these prices more standardized for our menu listings and we are trying to incorporate the excise tax into the prices so that only 8.5% will be added, just like it has been for the past several years. In doing a quick calculation, with the sales and excise tax it does seem that you were charged the correct amount, but our management would be happy to take some more time to review your specific transaction and remedy any overcharging that may have occurred. It is our job to figure out the intricacies of these new taxes and make your experience easier, and your feedback is very helpful to us. Please feel free to contact our manager to continue your conversation, and thank you for making us your #1 spot for your medical needs. Manager Email: email@example.com
everyone who works here is nice, they know what they're talking about and they help you make informed decisions. I see a lot of complaining about tax on the reviews for this facility and that's unfair because while the taxes are high, it's still federally illegal and you can avoid tax as a state medical patient and that should not reflect on the store because it is out of their hands - not to mention their prices don't seem to have inflated yet since, which is very respectable. HPRC is always offering deals and promotions, I find this to be a huge draw to their business. there are menus all over their lobby so you can think about what you want before you get to the counter and even then you aren't being rushed. A++ give this place your business, you will not regret it
Thank you so much for your support and kind words. Our staff has been working nonstop since the implementation of new rules, regulations, and taxes in 2018. There is alot of things changing in the State, but our dedication to provide the highest quality product possible by our friendly and informative staff will continue to be our main focus. We have many promotions we expect to be able to offer moving into the spring time, and appreciate you staying connecting to our dispensary for deals and events. Thank you again, and wishing you well.
I don’t know exactly how the taxes work on the products but I feel I was overcharged. I bought two $5 pre-rolls and my total came out to $17 something.
Please come and have our management review your order. Two $5 joints even after taxes will not be $17 and change, we would be happy to help you out if there was any issues with your purchase. If you can not come in please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
its all fantastic. been going here for 3 years. prices were okay, little high compared to some places but quality makes up for it. with this tax however it tips it over. not the workers fault cause i know they hate it as much as i do. cant shop here cause of it. wich makes me sad. 15% is a good chunk of cash when were talking 2-300 an oz.
First off, thank you for your support over the years. Providing medical cannabis to our community has been an absolute pleasure and the patients we interact with make our job so enjoyable. We are just as frustrated as you are with the excise tax of 15% is being applied to medical cannabis and not just adult use. Why the state applied regulations this way is absolutely mind boggling. It makes no sense to punish medical cannabis patients. We have always aimed to have reasonable prices while still applying the highest testing and quality control standards, and supporting a healthy workforce that receives benefits. Now with permit fees, transport fees, distro costs, new packaging, and excise taxes, the entire industry is seeing their prices creep up for medical products. Please know that we are trying to do what we can to offset the cost increase. We recently increased our patient rewards program from a 2% return to a 3% return, moving to increase patients discount days, and we are working to have "reserved" product lines for medical patients that are discounted for cost not the quality, and we are writing to the State to express our frustration with the tax and the impact it will have on driving patients back to the black market. On a hopeful note, a year after regulations in Oregon Flower prices did see a drop as more regulated business came online. We hope to see prices normalize in California as well, as long as product quality and safety is not sacrificed. We hope to be able to offer you service again in the future, thanks again for your support and wishing you well.
Is there tax for medical patients now? Just wondering since my total came out a little higher than normal Amazing shop though with quality products
Yes you are correct the 15% excise tax applied by the state of California started on Jan 1, 2018. Each budtender has a worksheet that will describe to you the impact the 15% has on your out the door price. Your receipt will also break down the sales and excise tax. We are sorry that this has increased the cost of medical cannabis. Unfortunately the state has applied the excise tax to medical and adult use sales equally. We hope this changes in the future, but our company is doing our best to help offset these increased costs by increasing your patient rewards program return from a 2% to a 3% return on spendings, and developing reserved medical product discounts only medical patients will be eligible for. There will be many changes in this year, and we hope that prices will balance out as regulations move forward. We appreciate your review of our product lines, and know that our staff is working diligently to continue to source you the highest quality medicine possible at affordable prices.

I really love this place I’m from south of here and this was the only dispensary they had compassion program Really not knowledgeable and takes time to help see for those who can’t sleep love you guys keep up the good work 2018 I really love this place I’m from south of here and this was the only dispensary the head of compassion program
Thank you for your kind words and support. Maintaining our compassion program has been a pleasure over the years. Our staff has had the pleasure of working with some wonderful patients through some tough periods in their lives, and we continue to strive to support the program. We recently hired a nurse on staff as well that offers free wellness consultations to our medical cannabis patients, further adding value to the medical cannabis experience. We appreciate you visiting our dispensary, and look forward to helping you again in the future.

Yes, it is the only cannabis place in Eureka/Arcata that I've never heard heard ANYONE talk bad about. I am curious however, since the Fieldbrook Kush has been on the shelf for about 6 months, is there any way I could get a 1/2 oz for $80? Thanks, BudMcBongsworth
Thanks for the love as always! The Filedbrook Kush is actually the 2nd batch so this one is only 3 months old, but we are almost sold out! Can we set some aside for you today and we would be happy to discount it for you just to share the love back!
First off, you guy are the cream of the crop as far as selection, knowledge, Quality etc.... The only one thing is that I used to get this Awesome stuff from you guys for years by The Cannabis Lotion Company..The Super Soar Muscle Whip. Now , i was recommended Extra Strenght Sweet Relief as a replacement for over twice the price and it does not work as well as the other. Is the other stuff gone for good? I know other places in town carry it I just love this place and wish I could get all I need at one place:( You also had a spray made by them awhile ago I liked and you dropped that as well.
Thank you for the kind words and we are just as upset as you are at the loss of this product line. Due to California Regulations starting January 1, 2018, we are sunsetting our relationships with businesses that will not be permitted into 2018. Cannabis Lotion Company was an amazing product provider for many years, and our staff is sad to see this product not make it through the transition. In regards to costs, you are correct, topical costs are increasing due to increased permit fees, lab testing requirements, and distribution costs before it reaches our retail facility. We are sending our staff down to the Emerald Cup this weekend in search of new product lines that can offer just as high of a quality as CLC did for many years. Visit us on topical Tuesday promotions also to receive 20% discount on all topical products. Thank you for being part of our dispensary and wishing you well!
HPRC has always been a pleasure to get medicine from and they always make things right if they mess up. I mean for crying out loud they've given me a free half gram of concentrate for receiving medicine with impurities in it and not having the gas to come back. To watch them grow as a compassionate and respectful company has been exciting and definitely makes this community proud. Go HPRC, Humboldt appreciates you :)
Thank you for taking the time to give us a review! We really are making the extra effort to offer the best experience and highest quality medicine possible, and we appreciate you growing with us over the years. We will continue to make the efforts through this transition time with new regulations, but we will always be here to help answer your questions and be your resource center! Wishing you well.
The girlfriend and I visit this place at least once a week, the staff are very friendly and give good recommendations without being pushy. Babe is especially fond of their CBD concentrates, we usually start our mornings with a lil dab of it 👌 They can get pretty busy, but we always leave satisfied and smiling. We 😍 HPRC medicine
Thanks for being part of our dispensary and taking the time to give us a review! Our new lobby should be done this winter, really adding to your experience and giving each patient the room they need to enjoy their shopping experience. Thanks for the feedback on the CBD concentrates, we have alot of great products coming down the pipeline for you! Wishing you well.
