how is a .5 regular 510 cartridge of bloomfarm going to cost $50? not even the single origins... point being this club is nice, upscale and probably the best looking dispensary in the city.. however, it is very pricey . probably the most expensive dispensary in the bay area
Hi there. I'd love to learn more about the specific cartridge you purchased. Please reach out to me at email@example.com so I can learn more. If we made a mistake, we'll certainly make it right!
This was my first visit to a dispensary, and the in-store experience was very good. Robert was very helpful and did not hesitate to help me find the right product. the only reason they have 4 stars instead of 5 is the CBD tincture purchased has an awful taste. I would compare it to licking a Dirty Ashtray. since I was leaving the state I did not have a chance to get back with the dispensary.
Have to wait for one on one assistance for product but well worth the wait. Great customer service.
Whether you're new to Marijuana or not, this establishment is extremely professional in every way. Highly recommended.
my friends and I came here on spring break as first time customers, having only been to a dispensary one time previously in Las Vegas. Staff was super nice and welcoming to first time users, didn’t have to wait very long at all and was called to the counter by name which was a nice touch. Very sophisticated and clean atmosphere with an elegant menu and offered free coffee! Our ONLY critique is that a variety of products were out of stock, but we did find plenty of other great options, so it wasn’t a deal breaker at all. They also offer $5 off on first time customers first purchase whilst also having pretty good prices. We all bought gummy edibles and chocolate bars, which taste great and doesn’t smell/taste too skunky. Will definitely be back before our trip is over!

The prices were initially higher than I'm used to and my options on a budget were limited. However, the budtender who worked with me was very helpful (and cute) in their suggestions and in getting me all the applicable discounts. The place looks like a fancy hotel and overall it was a very good experience!
The Apothacarium used to be my favorite club in the city, now I can’t stand going in there. They were always overpriced when they were a medical dispensary but now the prices are just ludicrous. My favorite aspect used to be coming in and smelling all the different kinds of buds. Now they make you smell through a covered tin that you can’t even smell anything. Every thing is pre packaged, where as before they would weigh it out in front of you. Their bud quality has also gone down, and they are starting to become a mini chain as they now have 4 locations and are going for a 5th in the sunset. I recommend saving your money because this place is now a rip off. They will claim it’s the taxes, but how can an 8th go from being 50 dollars during medicinal to 68 dollars (without tax) during recreational?
Hi Forzaviola. Thanks for posting, and sorry for your disappointing experience. A word about higher prices: new taxes, plus new government requirements that we have no control over have led to increased prices. Please know that we have NOT increased our markups -- the higher prices reflect higher prices from our suppliers. We wish we could still allow you to smell the flowers directly -- unfortunately this is now illegal. We are still the same family-owned business selling flowers primarily from small, local growers. I hope you’ll give us another try. We do care and are working with our suppliers to keep prices as low as possible. If you have any further concerns please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you haven’t been here, you need to go. This is the nicest place I’ve ever been to in both San Francisco and LA - by far! And the staff are all amazing.
Excellent service, Nice Staff, Pricing is a tad high on some stuff but although great experience
