I'm a new patient but I enjoy the product and the staff here. I don't like the parking set up but it's tolerable. Purple sticky punch has been a good indica heavy hybrid.
This shop is is all about $$$ The Rec side is way better than the Med side which is bull@#$!!! Medical patients should always come first. $35 for an eighth?? C'mon!!! We have our Medical Cards for a reason but you treat us like we're recreational patients. The selection for rec is awesome but on the Med side it's horrible. I guess there's more money to be made on the Rec side. Listen Up!!!! BERTHOUD Dispensary's are the best Great Price Amazing Product Great Staff and Tons of selections What Happened To You Natural Alternative's????
It sounds like you've been a long term client and would like to invite you to come talk with us about your frustrations and go over what we've done to help our medical clients. it sounds like you were not informed of our efforts to accommodate our medical clients while we're going through some changes and apologize for any confusion. We do have a limited selection of flower on our medical side, but this is due to the 70/30 inventory law medical dispensaries must follow, as well as restarting our grow this past summer. The flower we carry must be 70% from our house grow and we are only allowed to have 30% purchased from other growers. We cannot deviate from this unless that law changes, where recreational dispensaries do not have the same laws or limits which has allowed for rapid expansion. We have written documents explaining this in our waiting room and our bud tenders are available for any questions you might have regarding this. We've also done our best to be candid with our clients about restarting our grow this past season to yield larger harvests and THC percentages. Nature takes time to regenerate and we're just starting to see a turnover of larger batches and more strain variety which we're very excited about. Until we get more of our house flower in, we cannot purchase wholesale. What we've done to help our medical patients with these limits is to offer $25 eighths (normally $35-$40 for recreational clients) on the variety of wholesale flower we carry on our Recreational side of the business, making your options more affordable and variable as a medical client. Our same house flower that you can purchase for $35 an eighth on our Medical side is $55 on our recreational side, which is a significant difference in price due to recreational taxes. If you also price compare our medical eighths with other dispensaries in Fort Collins, you'll see that prices are similar. We take time with our flower, using living soil and hand trimming each bud for excellent quality and see our prices as fair for our grow team's efforts. As you've seen, we also do our best to select top quality wholesale from other growers to make sure medical and recreational clients are happy with what we provide within our limitations as a business. Recreational has taken off, but we see it as an opportunity for supporting the growth of our medical business in the long run, such as expanding the medical grow to have more house flower in eventually. You were the first and we want to honor that the best way we can. I hope this helps you to understand what goes on behind the scenes of a medical dispensary and what we've done to help our medical patients.
I not only work in the industry but I have been a med patient for almost 6 years now and have been to many many dispensaries. If I’m in Fort Collins I will go nowhere else but Natural Alternatives 🙏🙏 so much respect and appreciation to this shop
Kind, knowledgeable, caring staff. Wide variety of products. Simply the best.
still a great place to go and if they don't have something specific you are looking for they do their best to help you find the product somewhere else.
Skip the bad vibes and lack of selection and go anywhere else. Medical patients have many better options and might be well served by taking a trip down to either of the medical spots in Berthoud, across the street or up the road, or even going upstairs to the recreational side (which has good selection and friendly staff). When you read the reviews here realize many are for the recreational side upstairs which is a totally different operation.
I thought having a medical card had its benefits? The shatter I purchased also tasted like I was dabbin chemicals. They only have like 8 strains on med and upstairs have like 50 better ones. Budtender told me I could shop up stairs once so I did and the rec budtender told me they didn't acknowledge med prices up there. Rec budtender didn't seem to have a clue what was going on so I told him to go ask a manager and never did so I just walked out. Telling all my smoker friends to never go back. If I could give negative stars I would.
I’m very sorry to hear you feel that you had a poor experience. Unfortunately, we have recently had some issues with the equipment in our garden not functioning as expected and as a result we’ve had to make some very time-consuming changes to ensure our flower is up to our incredibly high standard, a result of which is that our medical side has had a limited selection of flower, and with current laws in place we are not able to import any more wholesale currently.
That said, we have gone to great measure to overcome those challenges and expect the issue to be resolved within only a few weeks. In the meantime, we are happy to help accommodate our medical patients with heavily discounted flower on the recreational side to ensure they still have access to affordable flower to help potentially provide them relief. In the meantime, we still have a wide variety of concentrates and edibles available on the medical side for patients that require a significantly more potent method of delivery.
A few other things that may be beneficial to keep in mind: As we do not process any of our own concentrates, if you are not pleased by the flavor or experience with a specific concentrate that can be a result of either the company’s extraction process or the strain they extracted from. If you are looking for something without a chemical flavor I might recommend trying something that is a solvent-less extraction such as a rosin or a distillate. Beyond that, I’ve also noticed you’ve left reviews on a variety of dispensaries pages, and based on those reviews you seem to be under the impression that holding a medical card provides you benefit when making purchases at dispensaries. While it’s true that generally medical dispensaries will have more affordable prices on products than recreational dispensaries, that’s not really the purpose of having a medical card. The benefits of being a medical patient is that you will have access to higher dosed edibles and a wider variety of concentrates; a medical card is not intended to simply be a loophole to get cheaper goods.
Such a great dispensary with tons of great specials daily. They go above and beyond to make sure you're happy with your purchase as well as being there to answer all your questions. Jake is the best 👌🏼👍🏼
