Wow, remodel looks great. Smaller shop but always good selection. Budtender could be a little more friendly.

Grateful for SCN!

I recently visited Santa Cruz Naturals for the first time since the remodel. I found Staff to be energetic, kind, thoughtful and the wealth of knowledge was amazing. The Bud Tenders quickly asked me the necessary questions in order to get the medicine I needed. CrackerJack and CookiesNCream are as beautiful to look at as the are effective. A big thank you to Bella for sharing her knowledge insuring I purchased the right medication. 🤙🏼

Seriously it’s the best dispensary in the world

Santa Cruz Naturals was the first dispensary I ever went to. I felt comfortable and respected as they joked with me and answered all my questions. It’s been almost a year since then and I’ve gone to several dispensaries all over California and none of them are as accommodating and kind as SCN. I always look forward to coming home to Santa Cruz Naturals!

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.

BeachLife_Clamper Is the total tax applied to the prices listed for medical at 23.5%?

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!
