The staff here seem very knowledgeable, extremely friendly and always helpful!! They are quick to help you and have always been able to answer any questions I’ve had. It is a very clean office and the setup is good for privacy. I would definitely recommend this location to people!!
Definitely a very welcoming environment. The staff are very friendly and professional. I had my own reservations about trying medical marijuana because of the sigma, but I didn't get that feeling at all here. The pharmacist was very knowledgeable and helped set me up with the right dose for my pain, and I've not had to deal with any weird or drowsy side effects like I've had with other pain meds. I highly recommend this location if you use or are planning to start medical marijuana.

I drive the 70 min to this dispensary from Syracuse because the products seem better quality and are much cheaper than local dispensaries. Staff is friendly and seem knowledgeable. I highly recommend the drive for Syracuse patients.
