Out of my element

I have to admit I am a total Donny about weed. It's been a while since I smoked. Since college. I was looking for some bud to relax and binge-watch over the break. I picked up some Sonoma Glue from SC Naturals. First night I took 1 large hit and coughed for about a minute then sat on the couch and couldn't get up. I was super dizzy until I fell asleep, about 30 minutes later. The next day I decided that smoking hurt my lungs too much and I wanted a more mellow high so I put 1 bud in some tea and oil and brewed it (per suggestions online). About an hour later I was feeling perfect; but the high kept building. At about the 3 hour mark I threw-up first (I thought weed didn't have this effect), then over the next 2 hours I threw-up 4 more times. After that I took a hot bath and drank lots of water and was able fall asleep, though I was high for nearly 2 days. Needless to say it wasn't a relaxing binge-watching break. Be careful with edibles.

First off, thank you for taking the time to leave a review on our weedmaps. Second I would like to address the issue you had making your own edible. Since it is clear you are new to cannabis it is never recommended that you create your own edibles, especially from top shelf high testing flower. When taking edibles it is very important to ease yourself into so you can learn what your proper dose is. We highly recommend purchasing one of our tested and properly dosed edibles so you can properly judge how much you are ingesting. It sounds like you made a strong edible from a strong flower and guessed your dose, which is never recommended. This review seems more focused at a negative first time edible (self made and dosed) experience rather then a review of the dispensary. We encourage you to come back in and ask about proper dosing and tested edibles. All of our edibles have dosing recommendations on them and any of our budtenders would be happy to point you in the right direction. Please follow up with my private message at your convenience. Sincerely, SCN Managment

New Rules, not quite up to snuff

3 people thought this review was helpful

I went to purchase a half ounce of grape bubblegum. I was informed that they only had that in one gram jars. Normally they said they have their product in grams and eighths but they were out of eighths. Be prepared to receive a ton of worthless recyclable jars. I also purchased a half ounce of SCN tangie, delivered in 4 hermetically sealed plastic bags. The weight was off on the half ounce by a whole gram. In defense of the dispensary the product sold to them sealed so they cannot verify the accuracy of the marked weight. If this is what the new laws bring, watch your your favorite dispensaries start to act like some cheap burger franchise. I guess that all the growers that could not afford the cost of the state's license will get fat again selling direct , like old times. hip hip hurrah.

Hey Mickey, it's hard to please everyone. We use recyclable jars with our top shelf flowers for a couple of reasons. One, because the flower doesn't get damaged or smashed by baggies when it's preweighed, and two, because we are trying to reduce the amount of plastic waste that we generate. Unfortunately, the compostable/biodegradable Greenline bags that we've been using for the past 7 years won't work with State regulations in 2018. The glass jars cost us almost 5 times the amount as plastic baggies, and they cost a lot more in shipping. We are making the conscious decision to be more environmentally friendly, and we appreciate our members who recognize that and who don't give negative reviews on us for doing so. All of our pre-packaged flowers are weighed on a scale that is certified by the County of Santa Cruz Department of Weights and Measures, and we weigh all of our 8ths at 3.6 grams to ensure that each 8th is full. If there was an error, please don't hesitate to come talk with one of our managers, and we will gladly make it right! We have been working hard to stay ahead of the curve and be well prepared for 2018 when it comes. We would love to keep working with our growers who have supplied us for so many years, but it's true that the State has imposed regulations that are preventing many of the small growers from entering into the market. If you don't like the laws, try not to bash the dispensaries who have been supporting these folks for years, but rather write your local government, assemblymen, and state representatives.

So the headache of rec begins

Thanks for the review, and yes, the headache of Rec is beginning. We're doing our best to keep your prices low, and diversity and quality high. However, when the State mandates that we use a 3rd party distributor, our costs as a business increase significantly. And, the State is making us apply the 15% excise tax onto the 7% Cannabis Business tax, onto the 8.5% Sales tax. That's compounding tax on tax, and will unfortunately drive prices up. Please write your state representatives to get their policies changed!

Love the new look and cheap prices

Haven't been in in awhile since they were going through a remodel but I am happy I did on Saturday. First off the dispensary looks beautiful when compared to how it was before. As for flower I got a quarter of slymer for 45 bucks and a gram of raw garden sauce which was discounted since it was their sale day for concentrates. For the price the slymer tastes great and is a solid smoke. The sauce (cherry slurm) is out of this world. I highly recommend checking this spot out.

bait and switch

Purchased four different strains- slymer, deadhead OG, 9pound hammer and clemintine. Slymer was a 4 out of 10 and the other three strains were all pinnapple genetics, none of which was worth the money, very displeased. The store is nice and the counter person was friendly, however Im not in to spending 200+ bucks on sub par flower and or misrepresented product strains. SCMN used to be worth the 40 mintue drive - not any more. No need for a response.

Hi, we understand that you may not need or want a response, however the people who read your review deserve one. To clarify, the Slymer, Deadhead OG, 9 LB Hammer and Clementine were all varieties that SCN grew and were purchased through Wave Rider Nursery. They were not "Pineapple" genetics. Also, these varieties were sun-grown and tested between 19-25% total cannabinoids, and you purchased them for $45 for each quarter ounce. That's a pretty spectacular deal, and one that we run because we want our members to have great deals and also enjoy the fact that great quality, high potency cannabis can be grown without using synthetic chemicals or using high cost electricity. With that being said, we would love for you to come back, but claiming that we are somehow serving "sub-par flower", or "misrepresented product strains" is an incorrect and subjective opinion. We've provided a large amount of these great deals and products to our clients with very little negative feedback, because at $45 per 1/4th ounce of Clean Green Certified, 19%-25% potency, hand-manicured cannabis grown in the Santa Cruz Cannabis appellation, it's a pretty major savings to those smart enough to take advantage of it.

Hello, If you would please follow up with us in a direct message in regards to your concentrate issue we would love the opportunity to discuss the matter further. As for prices not being listed on our weedmaps that is out of our control. If you go to other dispensaries in the county you will find all of their menus either removed or blank. The reason for this is the lack of an age verification portal to weedmaps. Unfortunately that goes against the laws set in place by the county. We are currently working with weedmaps to set up verification ASAP. Please follow up in my direct message I am sending you now. Sincerely, SCN

New look = less deals??

1 person thought this review was helpful

I have been a loyal customer for awhile, however I need to say I am pretty disappointed with the changes at SCN. The loyalty program was changed, along with pricing (went⬆) and now Edible days have been changed to "selected items only". I also realized that the weights are off on some 8ths i get! Seems like SCN is more about profit than patients...😔

Hi Nica, thanks so much for your review. We are so sorry that you're unhappy with some of the changes that we've been making at SCN. We were very happy to have been able to provide such robust discounts as we were throughout the summer, and many thousands of our patients benefited from those deals at the expense of the dispensary. But any level headed person would know, giving huge discounts all of the time is not financially feasible for any business unless that business is doing something illegal. But we do have awesome deals going every day of the week, and we have an awesome loyalty program that earns you store credit every time you visit.

Regarding Edible Days, (Which are Mondays, buy 3, get 1 free) the deal actually equates to 25% off and are extended to almost every edible that we have in the shop.

If you have had any issues with 8ths that you get, please be sure to bring that up the next time that you come in. But please note that our packaging team is very accurate with their weights, and we do frequent Quality Control tests to ensure that the products are not off. Our scales are certified by the Santa Cruz County Department of Weights and Measures, and we do our very best to ensure that we have consistency and accuracy every time.

What most people don't realize is that the cost of doing business for a dispensary is extraordinarily expensive; in January, the total tax rate for Santa Cruz dispensaries will be 30.25%! If you have a problem with high tax rates, you need to take it up with the State of California and the County of Santa Cruz. It's frustrating for all of us.

Thanks again for your review, and we hope to be able to continue serving you to the best of our ability.

...Also, have you noticed the $45 Quarters of Slymer and DeadHead OG that we've been rocking? We have deals like that frequently, and a lot more to come. If you sign up for our Text Messaging, you'll be in the know when we have big deals and discounts coming!
