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.
It's funny that given the area, all the other dispensaries sell garbage. HPRC is consistently good with high quality nuggets, concentrates, edibles and clones. also their staff is super nice and very knowledgable and helpful!
Thank you so much for your review. We have been working very hard to provide you the highest quality and safest medicine possible. Check out the Green Ribbon just came out today over 25% THC! Be well and thank you for visiting HPRC.
the best part about you guys like ive said before is your insanley huge clone selection and quality. however i dont approve of no longer listing the names. i live in eureka and would really love to know the actual availability before i come ,like we used to. thanks for being there!
Thank you for your opinion we are trying to make sure we communicate well with our patients! Are you using a mobile version of weedmaps or a desktop? We actually do list the strain options under each price category on the weedmaps menu.If you hover your mouse above each option it should reveal the list of strains. However, if this is not working for you we also list the clones on our phone menu 707-826-7989. Feel free to hit the clone menu or the front desk option we will try our best to get you the up to date strain selections! Thank you for letting us know and we hope to match up some medical strains for your needs soon.
The Pineapple Nepal is to die for. The genetics are Pineapple(?would love to know the parents of this) x Purple Nepalese. At first I was hesitant because it didnt look to hearty in the jar but went ahead and got a 1/2 eight to try out something a little exotic. Upon getting it home, I couldnt have been any more wrong about this magic strain. Its taste is something like a Pez flavored Nepalese hash ball. The candied earth overtones are just beyond words. Its a magical experience that can not be missed. Thank you for another class A strain HPRC:)

First off all I have to say is the staff is the very nicest knowledge staff I have dealt with on the North coast so far. They take their time with each patient and there is no pressure or rush in anyway. You can look and smell all the buds before purchasing. The bags all match the sample which is very very comforting. Now onto my current favorites in their selection.
Girl Scout Cookies: Their most expensive and its worth every penny. Tight compact crusted buds with slight dark blue undertones on some of the bud leaf. The smoke is deep and hearty with tones of vanilla,blueberry and dirt rock. I have seen at least 15 different GSC from different clubs and this one is the top pick. The high is everything you expect from the strain but with a higher thc content then most out there.
Lemon Larry Og: A surprising affordable strain that has all the top shelf characteristics. Crusted little nugs that reek of Og and sharp tangy lemon. It has a stratospheric high where you can really feel the sativa dominance with the combination of the larry og and the lemon thai. Totally amazing strain.
Angel shatter: Their top shatter(next to the Green Ribbon see below) and its a top rate winner. Golden in color and smooth on the lungs this shatter is an experience to behold. It has sugary after taste on the tongue and you need to sit down when consuming. Top choice.
Green Ribbon shatter: Another top self winner the Green Ribbon has the same qualities of the angel food with a stronger hint of Og on the exhale. Another tremendous concentrate.
The only dispensary I will deal with in Nor Cal. The Meds are always topshelf. Then the list of concentrates is a mile long. Everytime I pass through Arcata I have to stop in. Their edibles are a little weak, in SD we do 480-550Mgs but they were still good meds. Just need to up their dosage. I will always be a member of this place and I wish I was in Nor Cal Right Now.
Thank you for visiting HPRC! We can't wait till you pass through again! Let us know what Edible company you like from San Diego we love to hear about our patient's preferences. Be well and we will see you next time.
Found this to be my fav in all nor cal! great staff...super friendly...knowledgable...

see ya 2015..
Thank you for stopping by and visiting us! We are so pleased you were happy with your flower and clone selections. We love the way the Durban finishes with its unique nose and great sativa high. Definitely stop by on your next visit, lots of great new genetics to come in 2015! Be well and take care.
Got some clones from here recently and they were full of bugs (spider mites) you will never get rid of these bugs. I have to move now and start over because of your secret friends hiding under the leaves.
The bud for sale is great and I will return from time to time to see what's new. Don't buy the plants!!!!!!
Thank you for your honest response. We are so sorry your plants did not make it through the challenge of cultivation. We experience the same challenge in our garden. We use only an organic regiment that is approved for a Clean Green Certification. The largest success we had in controlling mites was not pesticides but environmental controls. Reducing the change in temperature and ensuring the garden does not get hot has greatly reduced the need for excessive pesticides and improved harvests. Since many patients eat the cannabis plant whole, we choose to still use the organic options which may never completely eradicate some pests. We are here to provide you quality medicine though. If you do restart your garden and need access to our genetics we will offer you a discount on your clone purchases and we always suggest an isolation for 7-14 days with 2 applications before introducing items to an established garden. Thank you for visiting us for your medicine needs, and we are always striving to improve!
