Totally disappointed, 1st visit, needed renewal and medicine. I was greeted by a professionally dressed man (scrubs). He sits behind a glass window and greets patient, while going through old vertical metal detector. Safe? Maybe, small place. He was not able to provid me with anything. No doctor absolutely no medication. I respect they follow rules, but not even a doctor name or dispensaries that might be helpful. Now 2nd visit, I really thought I was in for a treat😃Nope! Knowledge of chemicals? Definitely. I'm shown a small jar,lone bud, in order to smell product. Selection limited,pre-packaged, unable to choose whichever package, dispensed from behind or under counter, tossed in a bag, rolled up and handed to me. Cost? Ridiculous! $50 wasted! I get home, excited he talked so highly of "pure quality" I open this bag presealed, turned to powder or kief, only words to describe. I also purchased a Ganga Grape soda $12. During the transaction I asked, 1st time patient reward? He only gave me $2 off soda! Not even equal to 1/2 gram of $5 gram! If anyone considering going to StarBuds? RECONSIDER!
We always provide information and even a coupon for people to get certified through Intessa. We no longer do certifications here. Yes we do follow the rules, and as far as giving you a doctor name or dispensary that might be helpful, we simply do not know and we are not going to guess. I would have invited you to call around to other shops or get on Weedmaps to find out what paperwork they accept, we do not keep track of what other places are doing or what paperwork they accept. The products are pre-sealed because it's the only truly sanitary way to have a product. Sick people generally do not want to have it weighed up in front of them out of a large jar after everyone and their brother has touched it. I'm sorry that you didn't appreciate the discount either. Have a nice day!
Very nice layout gives you a relaxed feeling staff was very helpful flowers are very good suckers are great
Relaxed environment, friendly staff, clean, nice layout. Haven't tried the bud.
I like the vibe in StarBuds. It's not a huge place but they make it a relaxing and comfortable place to be. Parking is never a problem and I didn't notice any physical accessibility concerns. I also appreciate that they had a typed list of all their strains and had them separated by Sativa, Hybrid, and Indica. The budtender seemed knowledgeable and was friendly.
But here's the negatives. The price is really exorbitant for most folks. I get that they are trying to fill a niche around 'chemical-free' meds and that I get that lab testing costs money. But really, for a working-class town with lots of other less expensive dispensary choices, it doesn't make sense to use StarBuds as your go-to dispensary. It makes me wonder if they are trying to keep certain people out of their store. The other problem, as others have mentioned, is that I had an issue with being given the wrong medicine. Though I asked for one strain, when I got home the bottle was labeled with the name of another strain that was not as expensive as the one I paid for. I don't know whether the label was wrong or whether the strain wasn't what I asked & paid for. Other reviewers have also mentioned this as a problem. It might be helpful for StarBuds to start showing the patient the containers prior to wrapping them up in a bag. It also would not surprise me if the quality of bud received was different from the display, since we have no idea how long those pre-measured packs have been sitting around.
If it ever happens that you discover the wrong thing in your bag, you can call us immediately. We have always been able to remedy the situation on the rare occasion that someone got the wrong thing. We have even driven for hours to the ends of the state just to correct things like that because it's important to us that our customers get exactly what the pay for. I'm sorry that you got the wrong thing and we would have easily corrected it for you if you had called us. Someone is always here to answer the phone 10-7.
As far as "keeping certain people out of the store"... well, that just makes no business sense whatsoever. We want EVERY patient to come into the store and that's why we offer grams starting at $10 as well as individualized guidance for people who need to know about MMJ. There is something for everyone at Star Buds and continuity of quality is important to us. Let us know right away if there is a problem so that we can have the opportunity to fix it for you. Have a nice day and thank you for the review.

its a nice place and the people are nice and helpful but the bud they sell there all taste the same no matter what strain you buy it all has a crappie chemical taste and is way to dry i grow my own and my low-grade is ten times better than any thing they have they are giving the strains they sell a bad name
Simply not true, I would invite anyone to come and sample our quality. Everyone thinks they have "the best". Our product speaks for itself.

Trying to figure out why Starbuds charges $18-$20/gram when I can find the same product just down the road for $10/gram. Seriously, the EXACT SAME STRAINS are HALF the PRICE in just about every other dispensary in the Lansing area. Why?? I will not be getting my meds here anymore, and I am sure when other patients realize they are getting ripped off, they will stop getting their meds here as well. Unless the owner has a moral epiphany, well, you already know what happens to stores that deliberately overcharge people. It's called "Out of Business."
People come here because they expect a clean and reliable product, and because we have something for everyone, even if 10 bucks is all you have. You are more than entitled to your opinion and by all means shop wherever you want, but our quality and service speaks for itself. There is a reason why I encourage every new patient to shop around town as much as they can. It's proven over time to be the quickest and easiest way to get them back as lifelong customers.

Prepackaged flower is a horrible idea. Bud's look good but they were harsh, probably pumped full of chemical fertilizers. Price way to high and nothing for the budget market. Remember your helping sick people that in most cases aren't rich.
No chemical fertilizers. We offer plenty for the budget market but there is only a certain minimum margin of quality we can ethically offer. Especially when people have actual allergic reactions to whatever is sprayed in certain other bargain brands from stores we have never heard of. It doesn't help sick people to try and pass off terrible weed just because it can be sold for cheaper.

Stopped in and bought 1 gram of Blueberry to check out their strain of blueberry. I get home and open up my "package" of meds and discovered this bud was WAY WAY to dry. It just crumbled into dust. PLUS it only weighed 0.8 grams!! TOTAL RIP OFF!! DO NOT GO TO STAR BUDS!!! THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF!!!!
Go to Pure Options for TOP NOTCH Quality Meds at same or better prices than Star Buds. Star Buds should change their name to Over Priced Crap Buds!!
We would have corrected your issue without hesitation if you had made us aware of it. I'm sorry for your bad experience, but you didn't even give us a chance to fix it.
