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.
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.

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.

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.
prices could be better but they have golden goat so there is that will definitely go back soon!
Love the huge selection of waxes, shatter and oils. Thanks guys keep it coming!
It's top notch, what more can I say? The place is super clean, has an upscale feel and friendly budtenders willing to answer all of your questions.
I just have one request; well two: Headband & OG Kush on the recreational side, please!
Thank you so much for the kind review! We always appreciate seeing these. We do have Headband available on the recreational side (which is an amazing strain) and we'll certainly see what we can do about getting OG Kush going!
Great atmosphere, very helpful budtender, recommended some bud for me (fantastic Flo) and some light, one dose edibles for some friends. A very good experience, I'll be back
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit and glad that you liked the product! We'll see you next time you come in and be sure to check out our new V.I.P program to take advantage of the special pricing and all of the daily deals!

That's it that's all.
Thank you for your review. Sorry to hear your visit was not enjoyable. Is there anything specific we could improve on? Any feedback would be appreciate and hopefully we can make it a better experience for everyone.
From the moment I walked in I was impressed. I used to live in Los Angeles and had a medical prescription there, so I have been to a number of shops out west. But this place was top-notch. It really did have a feel almost like walking into a spa.
The staff that I interacted with were all wonderful and welcoming (I wish I could remember their names to give them extra props... sorry I can't remember!).
This place assigns you a personal "barista" that focuses only on answering your questions and helping you -- one customer at a time per staff "barista", so you truly get that personal help -- they are only focused on you! Everything about my experience was positive and enjoyable. I thoroughly love all of the product I got, but it's impossible for me to not feel like it was on the pricey side though. Yet at the same time I'm still a satisfied customer and will absolutely go back. (Keep in mind I'm comparing it to Los Angeles prices, and not other Colorado prices as I'm new to the area and this is the only Colorado one I've been to yet.)
(**Note - parking can be a bit crazy, so just be prepared for that...)
Thank you for the great review, we always love seeing these! We have been doing several different daily specials that you can take advantage of some great deals on special strains of the day, buy one get one 1/2 off's, and 20-50% off of certain items! Also, keep an eye out for our new V.I.P program that we will be unrolling shortly that will give you access to even better prices on our products! Thanks again!
