Frist time patient and I am in love

2 people thought this review was helpful

I'm so happy with the service I got today and all he product that I ended up buying. The quality is A+ and my bud tender was really awesome and very helpful. I wish I would have asked his name because he was so helpful and knowledgeable. He needs good recognition! I will definitely be coming back soon.

Although it's the only Dispensary in the Monterey area, it has never let me down as a reliable source of great bud and tons of different edibles and etc.

I'm an old man that like to go old school when it comes to cannibis. I don't like consentrates and cartierdegs I only smoke "flower". At this place I will never be able to get that good quality that I'm looking . I have came back three times hoping to find something different than what I always get "top shelf" but this weed never works for me !. Defenetley not coming back this time !

Finding the right flower can take some trial and error. We’re sorry to see you go, but wish you well on your journey for flowers. Please stop by any time if you change your mind.

It's not all that bad

The store is clean, the front desk workers are super nice and friendly. But.. your "Budtenders" are not really well equipped with the knowledge they need to do their jobs properly. I have literally given up asking questions about any of your mmj at your dispensary because if I do, it's either "I don't really know about that" or a barely feasible description of what the mmj does or could do. Now it's not like I've stopped doing any research on my own. But come on... know what a terpene profile is or the names of some common ones along with how they could affect a patients "high" because not all Indicas, Sativas, and Hybrids do the same thing. At the very least, please have your "Budtenders" do some required research on their own so they can learn more about cannabis. This plant is so complicated, having some more medical knowledge rather than (I'm assuming here) plainly knowing about cannabis pop. culture will never hurt. Honestly, It's like you just hired random 20 year olds that told you they smoke weed and that's all the info you needed. Cannabis is an awesome plant with a variety of uses, but without proper knowledge, you can really give a patient a shitty experience or worse. Now It's not like I'm going to stop coming here, but Herbal Cruz is definitely my go to when I actually want to learn about new things and the place I go to for my oil applicators. I know I'm not the only review that references how a lot of your "Budtenders" don't really know about the products they are sending patients home with, so please do yourself a favor and fix this problem before you hurt a patient.

Visting from out of town

1 person thought this review was helpful

I came here while staying in Monterey with my bf. The receptionist was nice. Took 5minutes to fill out paperwork and was instantly verified. When I went into the room, there was a line of 2 or 3people ahead of me, but there were 4 or 5 butenders there, so I only standed in line for about a minute and was called. The budtender was friendly and gave me the run down on their products. There were people behind me in line, so I did feel a little rushed. They have so many products, that it's hard to choose ;) I recommend that you look on their weedsmap menu beforehand, so you have an idea of what you want. Try a gram of their White Gorilla, it sure is something else :>)

MBAM needs a change

In conclusion to my last post, if youre going to MBAM youre gonna wait, you might wait 30 min before they call you. So don't waste your time asking the budtender questions, most likely they haven't tried it and they don't know/care. You got extremely lucky if that prepacked gram is even somewhat fresh and doesn't crumble directly into kief. yes theres a possibility that one of the 3 unnecessary security guards will wand you down, don't worry though you won't need to make small talk... they're pretty rude. they only get away with this kinda service because there is no other option in monterey. they always got customers and a long wait cuz you got no other choice around here. there is a lot to learn from the places & people that try and limit or control your view of something

We appreciate your feedback concerning our dispensary. It looks like the issue you spoke of the most is the prepackaged flower. On January 1st, 2018, every dispensary in California will be required to sell prepackaged flower. We have looked into weighing at time of purchase, but switching to that system with 7 months to go until we have to switch back didn’t seem like a good decision.

In regards to our Budtender’s knowledge, we are continuously training and educating our people, and feel that we have a very knowledgeable staff. We’re sorry that you did not experience that.
Feel free to email me with any concerns or feedback.

working here should require prior MMJ knowledge

Solid selection on wax & concentrates, ironically the most affordable as well. But im confused by the recent increase to the sales tax on already borderline overpriced products. Does MBAM truly care about it's own patients and the goal for a healthy, happy and positive life with the the help of cannabis? So I have a few questions about running a MMJ service, Why is the flower prepackaged? You run a MMJ business so you should know the importance of packaging and how it contributes to the business. The packaging at MBAM causes the flower to get too dry which in turn reduces the buds overall quality .13$ gs should really be 10$ if that, and the 17$ gs should be 13$ to be honest. Lastly it's upsetting when the budtender obviously doesn't know much about the products being sold. Reccomending something like MMJ without proper knowledge of the product and situation could potentially be dangerous.

I Love the Staff at MBAM

2 people thought this review was helpful

MBAM is my #2 source for medicinals in Monterey County, only because they do not deliver. The bud quality here at MBAM is usually pretty regular. They do have really good top shelf bud from time to time, even well priced mid shelf bud that knocks it out of the park, but they sell out VERY quickly. Their wait times can sometimes be about 10-15 minutes, but it is because of the wide and high quality selection that they offer which keeps so many people coming back. I think every single security guard/receptionist/budtender employed by MBAM is exemplary of excellent customer service. I have never had a bad experience and have seen them go above and beyond for other patients.
