Obnoxiously overpriced

1.0
I am leaving this review to warn anybody about to waste their time with this place. They operate as if they are the only provider of cannabis in Los Angeles: unfriendly security unnecessarily armed to the teeth, $70 (BEFORE TAX!!) for a 0.5 gram Heavy Hitters vape cartridge, no flower less than $20/gram (again, BEFORE TAX), and the staff emits a slightly arrogate vibe too. I was near and they have a billboard that catches your eye, so I decided to stop in. Even though I was inside for about 10 minutes I felt like my time was completely wasted. Maybe this would be tolerable if they were the only shop in town but I’m sticking with delivery for now, same exact products for literally a third of the price. The Higher Path is a good name: that’s the path for unnecessarily high prices. What a joke.

The Higher Path values each customer and wants everyone to have a welcoming and safe experience. Please feel free to email info@thehigherpath.com to speak directly with a manager. If you look at our menu, our grams actually range in price from $13-$20 before tax and our Heavy Hitters are $65 before tax. Our prices are a reflection of the fact that we are a legal, licensed dispensary--you can check out our blog for more information about the specifics of why shopping at a legal dispensary is more expensive than shopping at illegal, unlicensed ones: https://www.thehigherpath.com/blog/update-on-pricing-increases-at-the-higher-path. -The Higher Path Staff

OVERPRICED/SUB-PAR FLOWER

1.0
I've been to this store a few times now, and their mid level priced flower was weak/dry - when I say "mid level priced" I mean around $50/8th and that's NOT including tax. I figured the bud wasn't great because I wasn't splurging on their top shelf flower - as an employee had sort of insinuated when they recommend their preference of flower being around $60 something an eighth price. Seeking a flower that tastes good and actually has an effect, that also doesn't wear off after twenty-minutes, I finally decided to splurge and get the top shelf stuff on my last visit, that had been recommend to me on a previous visit by an employee. Forking over almost $70 for an eighth(I am a medical patient by the way w a doctors referral) and the tax being added after the already crazy high price, but it was all wroth it because this time i was getting top-notch flower; I'd be getting what I payed for...right? WRONG. The bud was TERRIBLE/SO DRY! And WEAK. What a joke. I feel ripped off by this place and will never go back. It's a very frustrating shop. OVERPRICED/SHITTY FLOWER. I'm usually not one to review and wouldn't have cared that i payed so much, if I actually got what I payed for...that being quality product. I'm gonna spread the word NOT to go here unless you like being ripped off. Honest truth. H.P can try to defend this all they want, but their flower is just sub-par, if that at all.

We're very sorry to hear you haven't been enjoying the flower you got from us, practical magic. Our flower comes from a variety of different brands, so we'd love to get a little more information about which strains you've picked up that weren't up to par so we can give that feedback to the brand directly--would you be willing to email us at info@thehigherpath.com with some more details about your orders? (If you can't remember exactly what you got you can give us your full name as it appears in our system and we can look up what you've purchased.) In regards to our prices, we are a legal and licensed dispensary which means the products we carry can only come from licensed vendors that meet all Bureau of Cannabis Control regulations for labeling, packaging and testing. These regulations have definitely increased the overall cost of products (especially flower that now has to come prepackaged), but we do offer discounted products like our budlets for $25 an 1/8th and Cobra Bites for $20 an 1/8th. Again, we're incredibly sorry that you haven't been impressed with the flower you've gotten from us and we hope to connect with you via email so that we can determine which strains you had issues with. -The Higher Path Staff

VERY overpriced!!! Cheaper options near by!!

2.0
This dispensary is all about atmosphere and probably because no one would show up for their prices. Apparently it works though because when I came in I had to wait in a lobby with a bunch of other soon-to-be suckers. After waiting I was met by a very friendly bud tender who was able to help with all my needs, but when it came to check out I was shocked to find that their already high priced items still didn’t include tax... and to pay with a credit card or debit card I had to go through some convoluted system of putting money on a gift card for a 3% fee to use it. At this point I consider just walking out and going to down the street to a cheaper place but because the bud tender was so helpful I decided to bite the bullet. I ENDED UP PAYING $67 OTD FOR A POD I COULD HAVE GOTTEN DOWN THE STREET FOR $52 OTD

Hey ez2remember! Our prices are a reflection of the fact that we are a legal, licensed dispensary--this means that we charge all applicable taxes (the local tax and sales tax aren't included in our listed prices, just like any other regular store you go to where the tax is added on at the register so you can clearly see it on your receipt) and we only carry products from licensed brands. Products from licensed brands cost more than products from unlicensed brands, because the Bureau of Cannabis Control requires them to comply with a variety of regulations for packaging, labeling and testing. Places that aren't charging you taxes or are offering products at drastically lower prices typically aren't licensed, which means they're operating illegally. These shops don't have to comply with BCC regulations so their products aren't tested and oftentimes they aren't even the brands they say they are--an investigation was recently conducted at unlicensed shops in LA that found that many of them are carrying unsafe counterfeit products and trying to pass them off as the real thing: https://www.nbclosangeles.com/on-air/as-seen-on/How-to-Avoid-Cannabis-Product-Imposters_Los-Angeles-509365501.html?fbclid=IwAR3HpIvMA_KcyzvQhGMtQBDTo3C3XBDPo_SIekEKOSTYPH7zjcWErvl8bJc We totally understand your desire to save as much as possible, which is why we have a different deal for every day of the week as well as special discounted products like our $25 budlet 1/8ths and $20 Cobra Bites 1/8ths. We also have Customer Appreciation Day on the 20th of every month and lots of Vendor Days where different brands come in to offer special savings on their products--you can check out our website or our Vendor Days highlight on Instagram to see who's on the schedule for the week :) If you have more questions about our prices, feel free to email us at info@thehigherpath.com and we'll be happy to answer them for you! -The Higher Path Staff

Good Products, Bad Prices

2.0
The 1/2oz of Cobra OG I picked up was pretty dank, made me happy I threw in a few extra dollars than I usually would for bud like that. The half-gram Blue Dream cart I got was a staggering $45. I’ve always payed $30 for a full gram at my usual shop, but this was a higher-end brand, so I expected it to be pretty amazing. Disappointingly, I only noticed a slight increase in quality over my usual cart choice and it seemed to run out in about 1/4 of the time. The 3 for $10 prerolls are great if you buy a lot for a party or something, but I’ve never actually managed to get more than slightly faded off a single one of these. Inspecting the joints further makes me question if they’re packed with lower-end bud or higher-end shake. Overall, this place has great stuff, but just about everything here is at least slightly overpriced. Some products that they carry (specifically the edibles) are so grossly overpriced, I can never see myself trying them. Will probably go back for some flower.

Hey litmus_green! Glad to hear you enjoyed the Cobra OG you picked up from us! Our pricing is a reflection of the fact that we are a legal, licensed shop that is required by law to only sell products from licensed vendors that meet all Bureau of Cannabis Control regulations for packaging, labeling and testing. These regulations mean that cannabis products from licensed vendors have increased in price, because they now have to be packaged a certain way and every batch has to be tested before it can be sold to a dispensary. We have an article on our blog that delves into our pricing if you'd like to know more: https://www.thehigherpath.com/blog/update-on-pricing-increases-at-the-higher-path. Illegal, unlicensed shops are able to offer products at lower prices, but it comes at the cost of your safety--the products on their shelves aren't held to any testing standards and often contain dangerous pesticides and chemicals. There was actually an investigation conducted recently in LA about this if you're interested in reading more: https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/Marijuana-Poison-Pot-Investigation-506356011.html Our vendors always appreciate feedback about their products, so if you'd be willing to email us at info@thehigherpath.com with more details about the cartridge you picked up we'll definitely pass your review along to them (or if you want to contact the brand directly you can do that as well). We appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback about the 3 for $10 joints--because they're such a great deal, the THC content is sometimes lower than other joints we offer. If you've got a higher tolerance, we'd recommend checking out some of our other joint options that are a bit stronger :) If you have any other questions about our products or pricing, feel free to email us at info@thehigherpath.com and we'll be happy to assist you! -The Higher Path Staff

Sorry to hear that the pre-roll you picked up wasn't up to par, phamdynasty. Was it one of our house pre-rolls (in a tube that says The Higher Path on it) or was it another brand?

Place is a rip-off

This is medicine. When you charge as much as a pharmacist you’re no better than them. Say what you want about taxes and regulations, your prices are exorbitant.
The Higher Path
Sherman Oaks / Studio City
Hey PJS777! Our prices are a reflection of the fact that we are a legal, licensed dispensary. The taxes we charge are decided by the city and the state--unfortunately we don't get to decide what those numbers are. Individuals with medical recommendations actually pay less in taxes than recreational consumers do. If you have an MMJ recommendation from a doctor, you'll save 5% on Local Tax and if you have an MMIC from the county you'll save 5% on Local Tax and 9.5% on Sales Tax. The prices of products from licensed vendors are also higher than they used to be as a result of Bureau of Cannabis Control regulations for packaging, labeling and testing that legal brands must comply with. There's a post on our blog that delves more into the details of this if you're interested: https://www.thehigherpath.com/blog/update-on-pricing-increases-at-the-higher-path We completely understand your desire to save as much on your cannabis as possible, which is why we do offer a lot of great discounted products on a regular basis--including our $69 Half Oz Specials, $25 budlet 1/8ths, a variety of 1/8ths ranging from $30-$40 and Dollar Joint Friday every week. We also have a lot of fun Vendor Days where different brands come in and offer special savings on their products while they're here--you can check out our Instagram or our website to see who will be here each week!

The Higher Path
Sherman Oaks / Studio City
Hey caligolfer! Thanks for coming to see us--we're so glad you felt safe and welcomed on your visit :) Sorry to hear that the strain of the vape cartridge you got wasn't the best fit for you. Our budtenders all undergo a lot of training to help our guests pick the best products for their needs, but how each individual's body reacts to various strains will differ. If you're having a hard time finding a strain that isn't too heavy for you, we'd recommend getting in touch with one of our Consultants who can help you assess which strains may be better suited to your needs in the future. You can visit https://www.thehigherpath.com/consultations.html to fill out the form and one of our Consultants will be in touch with you soon! Let them know the strain you tried this time that was too heavy and they can make a suggestion of something different to try :) If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to email us at info@thehigherpath.com and we'll be happy to assist you! Hope you're having a wonderful week! -The Higher Path Staff
