Minerva Canna GroupMedical Dispensaries / New Mexico (14,836 hits)
A few months ago, I purchased two different strains from Minerva: Blue Dream (sativa) and Blue Widow (80% sativa/40% indica), both at $14 per gram. (Label indicates Blue Widow was produced by Red Barn Growers.)
The Blue Dream smells like diesel to me, with hardly any resin (if at all), no seeds and a few sticks. The bud did not appear fresh and crumbled easily within my hands, resembling more of a powdery form than I am used to. The Blue Widow was pretty much the same as the Blue Dream, perhaps with a hint of citrus in the smell. This bud seemed a little fresher than the Blue Dream and not quite as powdery.
The Blue Dream may have been a little stronger than the Blue Widow, but both these strains lacked any real strength. Since these two strains were listed on Minerva's website as having the highest THC content, I don't see anything at this dispensary for an intractable pain patient.
Minerva is helping licensed patients
I don't always do reviews but the staff at Minerva treated me well when I first got my license. Their new office is also a lot better than the old one. I was smoking Blue Dream, then they sold out :( This seems to be a popular strain. The Harvest Blend was good enough, though, at a good price. They are open 6 days a week so I can usually get in before or after work. Thanks to all who participate in the Medical cannabis industry, it's better than being hooked on oxy!
Minerva is garbage!!

Seriously....whomever is writing the positive review for this place are invested. I have been to minerva 2 times and each time the staff is wonderful, the product is worse than the crappiest street marijuana. I bought Hog (a thunderous strain) an vanilla kush. Both smell like hay. No density the buds were wet and expensive considering that i have smoked mexican brick that was better. Buyer beware. Minerva is the worse dispensary in the west. That i do know
I would take a lot of convincing

I have been there three times and have never been impressed. The staff is friendly but I believe the " reviews" of their product is written by a staff member. On two different occasions I purchased three different kinds of buds. The problem is that all three different strains looked, tasted, smelled exactly the same. None of them gave a very good head buzz either. I do not recommend these guys. I think they are a rip off. I experienced the same problem twice. In short, unless things have changed, they SUCK. I will never buy from them again.
One good Trip
I am a first timer at this and they anwsered every question i had explaind how things worked. I can only hope the rest are as friendly....
minerva canna gruop has great staff and their office is relativly easy to find.But since the state goernment didnt allowe the prudcers have any more plants its has been nearly impossible to get in if you dont call before ten in the am or the night before.In my opinion the smokeable medacine is nothing to write home about. I have hade on strain (kurple Kush) i was only able to buy an eighth, and i have never seen it again.Dont get me wrong their edibles are delicioies. but not being able to get in kilss it for me.
Good customer service and high quality medicine
Went to Minerva a few weeks ago when they had Black Dahlia on sale. Employees seemed to know what they are talking about. The registration process was quick and painless. Nice office that felt very professional. Good location for ABQ.
Tried the Black Dahlia, which seems like a newer strain I haven't heard much about.It was medium strong (I need to smoke about 3 bowls a day for chronic pain) and some of the most beautiful, dense, and well-trimmed bud I had ever purchased. If you like purples and reds, this strain has it. The strongest THC they had (they had sheets listing THC and CBD %) was Black Widow, 15.5% I think. Nice dense buds with a citrus/cheesy smell, the crystals come off on your fingers every time you handle the buds! I also tried the "Satori Hash Puck", which is strong and will last me a long time since I break off a tiny piece every now and then.
Over all Minerva seems like they are working hard for the people, and they said they are only closed on Sunday.
