CVD is a non-profit business dedicated to providing high quality, laboratory-tested, affordable medical cannabis to our clients. We aim to treat our clients with respect and educate them about symptom relief and pain management through cannabis treatments and alternative health practices as supplements to traditional medicine. We strive to offer our clients a safe option versus the dangerous practices of the illegal drug market. Our goal is to achieve the best practices for the production, distribution and regulation of medical cannabis. *
As stated in our mission, Champlain Valley Dispensary and Southern Vermont Wellness plan to supplement advice on symptom relief through cannabis treatment with an offering of alternative health practices which will improve daily life for our patients. These may include lectures, support groups, meditation, yoga, other exercise treatments and nutrition.
If I could spend my spare time here I probably would, as the staff is so chill, but alas, they are a business :P They are also very knowledgeable, and obviously enjoy their work. Very high quality cannabis, my only complaint is that they often run out of product I need (I'm praying they stock up on Sour Kush, the strain works so well for me), but that's it. The price is steeper than some street prices, but it's a fair markup considering you actually know what you're getting vs. on the street. Recommended.
I would choose a dispensory over the average capacities of unregulated dealers, the resulting agreement to be videotaped live while there is part of the deal.
I am grateful for learning so much during my initial consultation. The onsale $8 Vday chocolate truffles are a Grateful Dead Experience for me.
I hope in the future they will carry an abundance of White Widow Family strains and that Vt Medicaide/Medicare will cover medication costs.

I'm a new patient as of a few months ago and would like to say that even though I have no other dispensaries to compare SVW with, I have been quite impressed by their selection, knowledge, and the fact that all of their products are and/or use organically grown MMJ. I haven't gotten to know all the staff yet, but Julie and Mike who work there have been quite helpful and they are easy to talk to about not just weed, but life in general.. Even though I wish Vermont had more than just four dispensaries, I feel fortunate that SVW happens to be conveniently located right here in Brattleboro where I live. They are also moving into a new space (if they haven't already by now) that is twice as big! Thanks to all the crew at Southern Vermont Wellness for being here and providing the service that you do!
5 stars from me all the way, but I only gave 4 stars on "pricing." Again, I have no first-hand experience with which to compare pricing to the other 3 dispensaries in the state, but what I like about what little I know about the scene in Denver (for instance) is that there are so many dispensaries (for better or worse) that competitive pricing can and does become a factor in addition to quality of product and service.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. They answered all my questions and took the time to make sure I understood the answers. Very easy to talk to :)
Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Can't wait to see the expansion. Great products and service.

Not as good of a selection as other dispensaries in Vermont. Felt the environment of the office was closed off and the whole experience felt rather impersonal. I wasn't very impressed.

Recently opened MMJ dispensary, all white, clinical and free of irony. Emphasis on SECURITY. Staff doing their best in this environment, showing compassion and intelligence. Product: 8 strains, tinctures, concentrates and edibles, All lab tested & pre-packaged. Cost: high but scale can slide. As more patients take advantage of the only dispensary in Southern Vermont it is hoped that the variety of products will improve and the quality of service will remain high and be compensated fairly.
