Have been here 4-5 times now and it has been the best spot for good $6-$7 herb and great prices on shatter. Got some new Mountain View flavours on my trip today and they are amazing!
Atmosphere definitely isn't as professional as some of the other dispensaries especially when people are in the lounge coughing their head off from to big of a dab.
But they have good products at good prices so I will keep coming back, always worth the drive!
I decided to give this place another shot just because I was in the area. The staff is terrible now half them look like they just crawled out of bed and smell like they look the other ones look like wanna gangsters. They have more people working at one time now and they serve maybe half of what they did the first year it was open and the service from there staff is shitty. What happened to the 2 guys that use to work there the first year it was open the budtender was fast and very knowledgable and if he didn't know the answer to the question he was honest about it not like the budtenders now that just lie. The guy that was out front had sold me my very first bong about 10 years ago at a store downtown. He treated me with respect from the moment he dealt with me and when I first walked into the fatmassit I was pumped. The dumbest thing the owners ever did was to let those 2 go. If either 1 of them opens there own store I'll be going there and so will a lot of other patients.
what is there to do the girl budtender is very sketchy rude does not want to answer any questions she should not be there doing that job the owner is a very good guy he worked hard to get where he is and for her to ruin it for him if you have the same problem that I have go back prices are good just go to a different budtender I will not deal with her no more between getting yelled at and freaked out on and ripped off it was an all-around bad experience only because of her products and prices are great and been there many of times this was the first that she acted like this she's heading bad days before but definitely getting worse she look like she was jumping out of her own skin
Updated Each Visit, Depending on Experience. Visit #20 review, Updated 5.34am/29/04/17
I have been an avid smoker since I was about 13-14 I'm now 38 turning 39 in a couple weeks, I work for a corporate company here in Halifax, traveled Canada 17 or more times, and (is a very tiny part of my life), I'm from the country / deep south shore to the very tip where the ocean meets the sky as my whole life I have been a lobster fisherman 15 seasoned years haulin traps and runnin the rail, until I went to university and finished 6 years ago, where bud grown in the ground next to a water source in the woods can be way better than most herbs ive tried, and if any of you know about good ol tweed then you know its not a joke, as ive smoked stuff that looked like hay, tasted like hay, and smelled like hay, but the end result was GOOD!, this place is my go to place for good herbs while I'm on my morning stroll, or afternoon when I'm done work, this place is consistent, the owner I do not know, have met once or twice is very professional as is the staff that works there, keep an open mind as people are people and if you love humanity like I do then you will see the true value of this place and its staff, its a chill lounge, until my last visit. (Although other 19-20 yr old customers may not be so nice, so be weary if your an older couple, will change my review one I see otherwise as this one customer I have not seen there in the 20 times I have.) as I really wanted to grab buddy when he acted so out of line trying to rush people and myself not asking but telling. Only 1 bad customer out of everyone I have met, but pissed me off enough to put it in my review. it is very rare i get mad as i avoid these things in my life, but this kid got immediately under my skin. and does not reflect the staff, but i do think there should be waiting rules posted in the lounge that unless your called on you have to wait until your called on. should get a couple vending machines as honestly I'm sure i and others would use it if one was there.
I have grazed every type so far of every herb they have, my favorite is green crack kush as its really sweet smell with a sweet taste, a little gummy when you chop it up, lots of visible terpenes, or the cheese strains i have noticed work well if you have IBS and still hoping for a real batch of UK blue cheese to show up there one day, or real northern lights as its my ultimate fav, but the old strains are hard to find as my buddy Opus 420 in BC even had a hard time finding them, Nuken is my #1 so far as it helps to relax while working, there as well as the Platinum girl scout cookies are great ive noticed a warm fuzzy feeling from it, a bit euphoric but extremely tolerable with a really beautiful purple going through it that seems to give it its earthy taste as I separated the purple from the green and well mmmm as I am a bit scientific holding a sociology degree and is why I'm a bit eccentrically happy, lots to choose from and lots of flavors, daily they can change so get your meds while there as the next day its something different, but always great medicine, despite the herb is not tested for CBD or THC it still works out in the end as get a couple of this and a couple of that on each visit and you will be surprised, EDIBLES ARE GREAT!!!!!!!! whomever is the cook, I have to say Compliments to the chef as you fixed most of my IBS and stomach issues, the herb helps but your edibles do the trick.
I respect the fact that these guys respect medication, not just weed. Do not be fooled by the prices either as some of the 6$ strains really may surprise you if your looking for a kick of THC, Friendly staff, not really to much of a wait time and even if there is say hello to someone, they are really nice people if you say hello, relaxed lounge to sit in, looks like they had ideas for this spot but was left unfinished so far, can chill but unfortunately I work every single day for 12 hours a day, so for me its a grab n go, for the moment. All in all this place is Legit, Better have your medical card as these guys do it right!!!
To elaborate on my post. I just wanted to add that there is a whole Facebook group talking about how the "farm assists" has ripped them off in one way or another. Really, there is no reason to go there; there are so many dispensaries now that have everything the farm has and more. I'd suggest 'Herbal Bud', they give you extra and will make deals etc. AND the staff actually is knowable and if they don't know they tell you, and legitimately care that you get good medicine at the best price. Fuck the farm, that snaggletooth idiot used to post on reddit talking shit but now that we have so many dispensaries they KNOW that they are dying, they suck and in retrospect always have. They were simply just the only thing around for a while.
First impressions were bad had some guy that I'm sure has something wrong with him asked him a question and it took 10 minutes to answer and what he told me was complete bullshit. Gave me a number to wait to go into the dispensary that looked like a kid had made them. Go to there "waiting area or lounge as it was called" and it look like it was the waiting area for a homeless shelter. As I sat and waited for my turn I had 2 people ask me if I had a hit of shatter for them and some kid that couldn't have been old enough to be in a store like that ask me if I could grab him a couple grams cuz he didn't have his license with him. So it my turn and I'm greeted by some smelly dirty girl with really bad teeth. I place my order and she weighs thing up and she never added anything to what she weighed up for me. So I pay for it and im glad that the hour I was there was over so I get my meds home and I had gotten 5gs of 7 kinds so 35 totals but when I weighed it I was shorted by almost 6 grams.
Went there and on weed maps they listed their Mr. Kush 'honeycomb' chemo for 25 a g, and I confirmed this with the store front end, then when I went to the back to get my medicine the female that has worked there for a long time ripped me off and told me it was 30 a g. Whatever, I wasn't about to argue with her but that and other shitty experiences have completely turned me off from the place, and you would think that given the abundance of local dispensaries now and legit online ones that they wouldn't try to pocket money like that, but I can only say that it was that one employee in particular that did that. Shitty because I gave them a lot of business but I won't be doing that anymore. All because some jackass that should be fired felt like pocketing some money.
Everyone here is knowledgeable about everything from medicine and what type would be best for you to what method works best for you. They are honest and don't want to sell you anything you won't be happy about. If you are looking for quality medicine in HRM this is the place to go.
This place is fantastic!
Friendly atmosphere, somebody always willing to meducate.
One of the owners is usually in there, Jes or Chris chatting up storms and usually with big smiles on!
Love chatting with the staff, they are quite friendly.
Always an amazing selection too!
