Organic Alternatives

I really enjoy the setting inside OA. The seating area is nice and spacious, the receptionist have been welcoming both times I've been in, and for those who have been to Amsterdam, it reminds me of a place that quickly could turn to a coffee shop model of bud distribution if that ever is allowed. I can tell that OA is organically grown, and I would guess most, if not all, is soil grown. the flavors are great in the buds. Had the Quantum Kush and BC Mango and enjoyed both for their flavors and highs. Like others, I have to knock the price a bit, but knowing the energy and effort it takes to grow completely organic in soil, I understand the markup to a certain extent. I think most of the dispensaries are a bit pricey in FoCo, so hopefully there will be a change across the board in the future. Either way, legal organic weed at these prices is fine with me at the moment, definitely cheaper than getting hassled by the cops, paying court costs, and spending some time in lockup.

Thank you for the review. We always appreciate getting feedback from our customers. We do grow in soil and we pride ourselves on being Organic. We are happy to hear that you enjoy the products and your experiences you've had here. We do choose to not post our prices and be apart of the online pricing wars that can and do happen. We are always happy to discuss our pricing anytime someone calls in with a question and people are often pleased that they came in, rather than simply going to the place that has the cheapest prices listed. If you haven't signed up to be a VIP member, be sure to ask a budtender about that on your next trip in. VIP members receiving lower prices on flower and concentrates and have access to our daily specials on a wide variety of products. Thanks again for the review and we hope to see you again real soon!

ACDCBagsby Also, posting prices will get you more clientele, I feel like a nuisance calling all the time asking about specials and prices.

GreenCheetos Lawsuit Wakeup Call

A lawsuit filed this week by marijuana users against Colorado cannabis chain LivWell over pesticide use should serve as a warning to the cannabis industry when it comes to product liability and manufacturing processes.

The suit could herald the beginning of a wave of similar legal action against marijuana companies.

“It should cause the industry to sort of stand up and take notice, and think about their policies and procedures, how they manufacture their product, how they run their cultivations, and in the end, to think about the consumer,” said Colorado attorney Rachel Gillette, who works closely with cannabis companies. “Any business that gets into this industry that doesn’t think they’ll have to follow a very high standard is fooling themselves.”

The lawsuit is targeting LivWell for its admitted past use of Eagle 20, a controversial pesticide that the plaintiffs contend can be toxic.

While Gillette didn’t comment on the merits of the suit against LivWell, she said that it’s only “a matter of time” before such suits become more common. As the cannabis industry grows, its liabilities and problems will grow as well.

WTF!!!

If you want people to come to your shop you might want to list some F-ing PRICES!!!!
I don't know how friendly the staff is, and I don't know how the atmosphere is, or do I know the bud quality is . because there are NO PRICES!!!! Why even have the menu up with no PRICES!!! So maybe list some PRICES!!!! And maybe I'll see something I like and buy it. Because i'll know the PRICE.

GreenCheetos Huh? Just in August you said Infinite Wellness was the best place in town....Husk,why are you looking elsewhere? Are you an employee @ Infinite per chance? I don't get it bruv it's October, what happened? Let me help you just in case you are serious about leaving Infinite Wellness to search for GREENER pastures lol. The flower @ Organic Alternatives is good stuff and I thank them, but I now have my red card again so I will return to MY SHOP (Natural Alternatives for Health) as their prices are too steep for me @ OA....and I like NA's bud more so then OA :- )

THE PRICE HURTS BUT THE FLOWER IS GOOD -

Alright here's the deal...Fort Collins has many dispensaries but only TWO are worth shopping at.

I let my red card expire so I'm out at the stores again ( I was a happy medical card member @ Natural Alternatives for Health) and good lawd paying rec prices hurts...real bad. I need some weed with high CBD content to take the pain away!

Anyhow, I'm here to rate Organic Alternatives...back in the day I was giving out a fair review to several stores until Infinite Wellness discouraged me from even using WeedMaps - it's not fair that the owner of Infinite was allowed to remove the honest reviews...

No worries, I just don't shop there not after the first visit, and I make it a point to tell others not to bother.

Back to Organic Alternatives.....A for the Flower D+ for the price...make that a D- for price.

$70 for an 1/8th? I know about the V.I.P. thing so alright make it $64.00 something.

Purple Kush - (very good stuff ) $55.00 Fort Come on tax - $9.57 total - $64.57

My friend says - well at least you will feel good while you are hurting over the cost. Ha ha...I guess I will be.
P.S. Green Cheetos...a description of North College weed heh heh.

Horrible Service!

2 people thought this review was helpful

This place is a joke! They are all about rec sales here and could careless about any medical patient or potential new medical patient. We went in looking for shatter and what they offer their med patients. When we were brought to the back we were immediately brought to the rec side even though they checked us in as med patients and verified our ID's. Once at the rec counter they only wanted to offer the rec products and at the rec price! you are kidding me right! After a manager was involved we were told this is the same product as medical but it really it isn't. When we asked about the medical counter the bud tender couldn't answer and had to bring in the manager who did not know any either and couldn't even do simple math to figure out their discount system that made absolutely no sense. Needless to say, they do not care about med patients! Would not recommend this dispensary to ANY Med patient! Stay away! Plenty of other awesome dispensaries in town that will give you their time!

Medical patients always get the same medical pricing on the recreational side or the medicinal side, so that you can choose whichever side you want to shop and still get the same price. We lower the price on the recreational side for medical patients, so that even after the recreational sales tax, the price is the same as it would be on the medical side. We apologize that the pricing and discount system was not explained better, but we assure you that medical patients do not get charged recreational prices.

Feeling ripped off

2 people thought this review was helpful

Almost 3 times the price of identical strains in Denver, and almost twice the price of other FC dispensaries. Bud tender was not pleasant. What a mistake stopping there.

We realize that there are cheaper prices at some of the dispensaries in Denver. There are hundreds of dispensaries down there and prices have certainly dropped. We grow an organic product and it is not the cheapest of way cultivating marijuana. There are quite a few dispensaries in Colorado that offer rock bottom pricing, but some have also been caught using banned pesticides and bombing their grow rooms with very harsh chemicals. That is the exact opposite of what we do. Customers and patients can also sign up to be members to receive lower prices and daily specials on our products.
