HPRC was the first dispensary I have ever visited. The people were so warm and friendly. The staff took time to find out what my needs were and any concerns. After many years of being on pain relievers and anti inflammatory medication I wanted a natural alternative. I cannot smoke so I educated on many other alternatives. Salves, edibles, tinctures. The products were of high quality and great. It was the best experience I could have imagined. I did not realize just how great it was until I visited another place in So Cal this past weekend. No one ever asked me what I was in need of, my ailments, my concerns, nothing. I was only shown products that I asked about and the guy just seemed to want me to hurry up and buy something and leave. The rest of the staff was too busy on cell phones to care either. It was the experience I feared would happen in this new world to me. Although HPRC is a drive from me it would be so worth the drive to find a professional, high quality and caring atmosphere. Thank you to all of the staff at HPRC for showing me a better way to be healthy and the great experience.
Thank you so much for your review. It is so unfortunate that you are not able to receive the same caliber of service throughout the State of California, but hopefully the medical cannabis industry future is bright. As more research is published, and safety standards become required all patients will benefit. In the mean time, HPRC will continue to dedicate its service to focus on medical cannabis and the needs of our prop215 patients. This includes clean green garden certifications, serv-safe food handling certifications, lab testing and safety screening protocols, and continuous training and education of our staff around cannabinoid therapy and healthy lifestyles. Do not be discouraged by your So Cal Dispensary visit and feel free to visit our website at www.HumboldtPRC.com for more information and links to helpful resources. If you must take a trip back to beautiful Humboldt County, we look forward to helping you again in the future and sharing our experience and information with you! Best wishes and be well!
I love that they have started carrying strain specific small buds. Its really a great value and you can still check it out before purchasing. I would never pay $50 for an eighth, but I'd pay $50 for a quarter. Crumbles are a mixed small bud buy, and great for mixing or filling, and for $40/quarter, that is a day-maker when you are low on resources but still want quality buds. The staff there are friendly, helpful, and when you're a regular they will remember you. I like that they are non-profit, that they grow in house, they care about quality, and are very professional. I like the clean atmosphere, the way the buds are set up for you, the openness, the knowledgable staff, and the quote of their buds. Even in the small buds, it's pretty damn good most of the time. I have started coming here more because I feel like the staff and organization in general is about patient care, plant care, and top quality. They are always asking about how they can improve, they are consistently friendly and positive, and I just feel good about myself and where I'm spending my money when I go there. Not many places overall are like this.
Thank you so much for your compliments! It truly makes our day to know our efforts are appreciated by our patients. We know that each dollar spent by our patients is important and we are continuing to bring in high quality, lab tested medicine, at affordable prices. The small buds have been a great addition to the menu and we will continue to provide them for you! Don't forget to ask about your rewards points which can be redeemed for free medicine! Thank you again for visiting our collective and we look forward to greeting you with a smile on your next visit!
Came in here about a month ago. This was the first dispensary I had ever been to, and it was an interesting experience. Staff were very friendly, though I wish they had told me more about the difference between sativas and indicas, which I didn't understand well at the time. They seemed a bit harried too, though that's not really their fault.
In terms of atmosphere, this place is nothing like the fancy San Francisco dispensaries I've heard about; it's a hole-in-the-wall at the edge of town. Nothing wrong with that, except I had a bit of trouble finding the place because it's so inconspicuous. The medicine was good, and the free cookie was delicious (even without medicine in it it would have been an amazing cookie!)
Thank you for visiting our collective especially for your first time ever in a collective! We agree that our facility is small which is why we focus so much on quality. We are in the process of expanding the size of our lobby and offering more space to have medical conversations around your medicine. We hope you visit again in the future and check out our improvements. Thanks again for you feedback and we will let the cookie producer know of your compliment! Be well.

If your shop is compassionate, then you should consider selling the first ounce and first 4 grams of concentrate of a 'House' blend at an 'at cost' rate to patients who are seniors, veterans and/or on disability. Often these patients do not earn more than $900 a month, so spending $300+ per ounce is prohibitive. A 10% discount to veterans is still nearly $300 an ounce. The 'at cost' rate should include an amount for operation/testing/employee's wages, etc. costs so this compassionate price won't hurt the shops ability to operate. It wouldn't be hard to operate this kind of program. Just have patients bring their income statement from veteran's/social security/disability when they come. They would need to get a new statement when they re-up their medical marijuana card each year.
Thank you for your opinion and visiting our collective. We understand the financial burden some patients experience when obtaining their medicine. This is why we have operated a compassion program for over 10 years, separate from the day to day discounts our patients receive. Our program was designed in partnership with the Sociology department at our local State University which includes income verification and a medical condition severity form designed by a 3rd party to assist in making the process less subjective and based on patient needs. Our program has grown over 50% in the last year and patients in need are receiving free and below cost products. This system is supported by the purchases of those able patients, each patient's needs being just as important. Please ask for a compassion application from a budtender, our program is reviewed every quarter. We wish you the best and look to continue to provide you the highest quality medicine possible.
So far as the quality of the herb here, there is no shop in Humboldt that can beat them. However, their prices are a little high, and they don't offer enough bargains for poorer folks. Does anyone ever notice that these shops are getting rich even though they are supposed to be about "compassion"?
Besides all that, my main problem with this shop is their large proliferation of BHO extracts. BHO, as you all might know, is made using butane, which is toxic and almost always creates toxic product, despite the attempt to purge the butane from the final product which is invariably only partly successful. Besides that, aren't you a little angry about all the BHO explosions in Humboldt? It's giving marijuana a bad name, and a really conscious health concerned shop would not carry BHO is they were really concerned with the health of their patients and the safety of residents in the community!
Each of our patient’s points of view should be considered. Concentrates can be done safely. They can also be done incorrectly. The safety of our community and our patients is our main priority. Our patients have expressed a need to us to source safe concentrates for their medical needs. We lab test each production to ensure a level of safety has been met. Our model is based off of the regulated markets of Colorado and Washington. By providing lab tested concentrates we are preventing and deterring black market purchases of untested, unsafe produced concentrates. We support a regulated concentrate model that promotes extraction being done in a laboratory setting and not in residential settings. Smoking cannabis from a pipe with a lighter is also smoking butane, so we offer hempwick. We also will continue to offer solvent less extracted water hash and CO2 as alternatives to patients who are concerned about BHO.
As far as our prices, our cannabis flower prices have stayed the same while our lab testing of each harvest has increased substantially. We reinvest in our community through donations, community service, tax payments, and an expansion of our compassion program for catastrophic patients in our community. If your medicine is creating a financial burden due to your ailment please talk to our management about our compassion program. Thank you for voicing your concerns. We have always taken the concerns of our patients and community seriously and appreciate each of you.
