My first impressions of this place were good. The front desk lady was nice and helpful. There is a big comfortable waiting room for patients. I also really like the bar idea.
Once I got into the bud room, there were a couple problems. First, there were 8 other people sitting at the bar and there was only 1 bud tender. This made it almost impossible to check out the strains. After sitting there for over 40 mins and looking at probably 15 strains, I would say that maybe 2 of the strains had medicinal value. The rest looked and smelled like hydro blueberry crosses, which are good for a big yield and not for good medicine.
Overall this is not the worst place in Fort Collins, the afgoo hash was decent, but the dry meds were not up to par.
The bud here is very great as they have a good selection as well as good quality. The only down part is the price of the medicine is a little too much...18 a gram is a bit steep for medical even if it's the bomb. I would return if the prices were lower like 13-15.
HOLY SMOKE, literally. I can't think, but it works.
Today, I made the 1st of what I hope are many visits. In addition to the classy and very cool environment, as mentioned in other reviews add a knowledgeable bud tender, supreme bud and $16g across the board.. $-$7 top bud pre-rolls.
They even have books on the bar so you can read up on the strains you are considering.
I got exactly what I asked for when I said I needed a really strong indica.
I wanted to order a cheeseburger and hang out... please add "medicinal bar food" :-)

This place is by far the best dispensary in Fort Collins. Has a large selection of the highest quality meds that I've seen in this area. Only place I've been to that has several choices of quality indicas, sativas, and blends. The atmosphere is comfy and the staff are very cool. It always takes me a while to make a choice here because of the big inventory, but the budtender always keeps me company and offers valued input. I've tried a different strain or two each visit, and have always had my expectations exceeded.
Big Thanx to Organic Alternatives from a very pain free mountain hippie!
I really like the atmosphere of the place. The bar is really cool and I would venture to say that this is one of, if not the nicest dispensaries I've ever been too. The staff is pretty knowleadgeable and friendly. The prices are reasonable. It is about $40/45(member/non-member) for an 1/8th plus tax. They have a great selection as well.
This is definitely one of the most professional dispensaries I've shopped at. The staff are very professional and friendly as well as extremely knowledgable. The waiting room is comfortable, with couches, magazines (interesting ones)and a flat screen TV, although I've never had to wait for more than a couple of minutes. They have an amazing selection of bud and other products and the staff can answer all my questions. The stuff I've gotten here has always lived up to the description given by the staff (ie. good for pain, good for daytime use, good for nighttime pain, etc.) This place is really great!

After reading such great reviews for this place I was expecting more. The bud was quality but the service was just pathetic, and with the prices they are charging I would expect top notch service. Instead the experience was more like walking into one of those dispensaries run by stoners primarily for their friends.
I had filled out my paper work and was waiting to be taken in back when a wandering woman came in trying to sell the store owner organic coffee. Rather than having one of us wait I was pushed off to some know-nothing attendant while he went to sample the ladies coffee. This staff member, whom I don’t believe was an actual employee, asks me if I have any questions, and when I ask what is a good, strong indica she tells me that she doesn’t actually know what any of the medicines are (which there were several) and she was surprised to hear that a sativa can often make me anxious rather than sleepy. Then, when I finally settle on something, a beautiful grape kush, my attendant puts the gram in a 2oz container, notices tiny 1oz containers sitting there and says, “oh, they have these little tiny ones,” takes the bud from the 2oz and crams it into the 1 oz container like it was silly-puddy. I was so ticked I wanted to walk out right there empty handed. At about this time the owner comes back from his cup of coffee and tells me we can talk about their care-giver deals next time I’m in, which I had been interested in.
The atmosphere of this place was great, I really liked the bar set up, and the staff was very friendly. It’s just too bad they didn’t know their head from their @$$. Great looking medicines but there are a handful of places around here with medicines just as good or better. Unlikely I will give this place a second chance.
First off I travel around a lot and check out new spots that get decent reviews on weedmaps so I was going up to Ft. Collins and thought I liked the reviews so I went. And I have to say this place is 100% badass! I buzzed my way in and was immediately confronted by two of the nicest great danes I have ever been around. This was followed by the welcoming smiles of the staff, and I have to say these guys were incredibly nice and accomodating. Since it was m first time in I needed to fill out the proper paperwork, which always makes me feel good because it gives me a sense of professionalism that I really like (I guess there is no worry of the feds just busting in). After I got the little amount of very simple paperwork finished I was introduced to the man in the back, a super cool dude in his mid-late twenties that totally knew what I was into! The bud was the very highest quality and the atmosphere was truly like stepping into the New Belgium Brewery. There is a 130 year old full bar in the back equipped with everything you need from pre-rolled, to hash, and not A quality, but S quality buds (thats superior and better than A)! The staff all knew exactly what they were talking about and what I needed, and werent pushy in any way but more like friends with a lot of weed ready to hang out with you. This place is super easy to find right off college about 3 blocks with a clear sign and its own structure! The price was standard $50 per 8th, but since I buy Oz or 1/2 Oz at the very least there were a lot of perks to spending over $200 in the store (if you catch my drift). These are my reasons why they get the full five sweet nug rating on all areas and I will definitely be in again!
Cool spot..they must have dropped serious money into this place!!..once you enter the med area it seems like you should be ordering a Fat Tire and not medical marijuana..seriuosly if i didnt know if this was a mmjd it would be a bar..the meds are decent with a ok variety..worth a stop to see for yourselves. staff was ok..i like this place, but its not the medical facility i was looking for..thanks!
