Went to lansing and got green crack for 200 an 0z not sure why it's 80 dollars more here.. i have bought from both and it's almost the same and was wondering is it because you are the only dispensary in town and can charge whatever serious ? Not trying to be rude I love the atmosphere here everyone is super nice and helpful just the prices are really above what a patient should be paying for medicine.

We enjoy making the people who are here to bring you clean medicine happy and we also enjoy seeing our patients happy. None of those things are free. We put a lot towards our community and a lot towards our city. Your experience for example, wouldn't be what it is today. We would not be operating as is. We hope in the future those prices will drop when licensing is established and pricing will then also be established. We wont have to count on caregivers giving us a great price so we can pass that great price down to our patients. We understand you can get flower elsewhere but that is not our motto. There are thousands of more aspects that go into it for us because all of the precautionary steps we take before even putting it out on our shelves that other places do not take. It's a lot on our end, but this is medicine, and buying it off the street without it being tested is not the way we do things here. We are only looking out for medicinal reasons and would like to steer away from recreational (seeing as we are a medical state only.) Hope that helps a little! Thank you for your review.

quality don't match the price

live next to here and I only go when I need to because the prices don't match the quality..the staff is amazing and helpful but it's hard to justify that quality. The concentrates are top shelf but again lacking in affordablity

Thank you for leaving us a review! We hope you are smoking safely and we hope everyone appreciates the testing we do to ensure patients clean medication. A medical facility must remain medical, not recreational which means a lot of it goes towards taking care of our CAREGIVERS. What we hope all patients understand is what a PPM is and why we test for it and why other places should provide you with concentrate tests'. PPM is parts per million which includes butane or iso etc. (aka things you do not want to be inhaling in large amounts.) 60% to 70% of caregivers who bring in concentrates fail that test. The ones who contain a lower PPM of 500 will gain access to our shelves for patients to enjoy, otherwise we unfortunately give them their medicine back. We hope that clears up why it's so important for us to test and why its important for us to take care of the people who make them! Thank you for letting us know, it is something we will work on in the future!

Nice

I'm from Grand Rapids and like this place, only complaint is the vape carts are never the same even in the same brand and flavor bought on the same day will have different levels of fullness and air bubbles comming out of the wic chamber. Over all I like this place pretty good prices not as good as some areas of the state (Lansing) but capitalism is legal, I think ? Ha ha . Staff is very nice and helpful. Hope this helps peace ;)

We are sorry that you feel the quality has diminished. We do try to keep a lot of top quality in but because we do not grow our own we some times can not control what is available. Keep checking back I'm sure we will have what you want in stock.

Amazing, goona be a customer for life

professional friendly staff,I felt at ease as soon as I was greeted by the front desk. the selection was like I have never seen before it was so hard to decide so it was good there was no rush or pressure. plus I got a free G of 31% THC sativa with my purchase for being a first timer. totally coming back well worth the 1hr 15min drive

We wish you all knew how much all of these reviews mean to us :,) We hope that we can help pave the way for our city and continue to bring clean, safe, medication to patients needing cannabis. Our only care is to make it easier on our patients to help find what they need. Educating everybody about their medicine is important because like anything else, there can be poorly grown or extracted medicine, so it's important to us to make sure you all continue to have a safe place to go to. Thank you again, we hope you enjoy the GMO Cookies ;D

Loyal customer

Friendliest staff around, super knowledgeable, top shelf flower, killer edibles, the potency never disappoints because everything is lab tested so you know exactly what you're going to get. Only the best makes it to their shelves. These are decent, honest people who truly care about providing high quality products.

Hey there, thank you so much for such a great review it has put a big smile on our faces! Also, you are absolutely correct about lab testing! What's great about lab testing everything before it goes on the shelf is that we can weed out (no pun intended) the low quality medication, including spider mites and mold, and instead make our shelves flourish with high quality clean medication! We think it makes it easier on you all, so all you have to worry about is finding out your favorite! Thanks for taking the time to write to us and we hope to see you soon! Enjoy the weekend!

Great Place, Great Meds

I've been coming here since the earlier days and I love to see how you guys have clearly invested back into your business to make it an even better experience for your patients. So glad to have a place fairly close that I know I can trust my lungs to. The only thing I wished is for lower prices but obviously I understand why that is! Thanks for testing and caring about what you put on your shelves. Keep up the great work guys and ladies!

Thanks for taking the time to reminisce about the old days! We hope the memories of the green walls, and long consultant table will always be remembered. They are great days to look back on but we hope you stick through our journey for the future...where there are way better tables! ;D Thanks again!
