I had been visiting the brick and mortar store for almost 4 years before they closed. So i finally decided to give BPG Express a try after visiting other clubs with sub-par satisfaction. The ordering process with BPG Express was easy and quick. Within 5 minutes of confirming my order email, I got a call from BPG Express to confirm my delivery time. The young lady on the phone was very nice and courteous. She gave me a delivery window of 1:30-2:30 hour. The delivery man arrived at 1:40. That's a huge plus in my book. I was totally expecting him not to show up until 2:30 but he arrived nice and early. We shook hands, had a quick small chat while I signed the paper and swiped my debit card, then he handed me my meds and I was off to my apartment again. BPG is once again my "go-to" for meds. Thank you so much BPG Express!
Thank you very much for the kind review. We appreciate your continuous support.

I live in berkeley but I drove all the way to San Jose to visit SVCare. I had been looking all over the bay area for an Omicron that wasn't overpriced. SVCare is selling the double pack for $30-$70 cheaper than all other places I have seen. They had a single pack and a double pack. I really suggest getting the double pack so you can charge one and still be able to vape. It's only a little more than the single pack. They also have Pure Gold THC oil and CBD Oil. The THC oil is gold and the CBD is a darker color, almost dark red-ish if I remember correctly. If you use Pure Gold, the Omicron cartridges are really easy to fill. You just have to clip off the tip of the capsule and then you can slowly squirt the oil into the cartridge. You can use a lighter to lightly heat the cartridge a little if the oil isnt flowing to the bottom of the cartridge. Don't heat the cartridge too much though or else you will ruin the seals and the cartridge will begin to leak. The Omicron kits that they sell come with a filling tool and 1 cartridge. I also suggest that you buy one or two extra cartridges and keep them on hand in case you want other strains or waxes.
Sorry for the sidetrack, Back to the review of SVCare.
I had called SVCare to make sure they had what I wanted since I was driving over an hour to get there. They were really nice on the phone and were able to answer all my questions. They take cash, debit, and credit. They are located in the industrial part of San Jose, which I like since it is sort of secluded and away from the busy parts of SJ. It was very easy to find and get to. Once I walked in, I was greeted and had to become a member of the collective since it was my first visit. The verification process was really quick.Once I was verified I got a tour of the place and a rundown of all their meds. Their bud quality was amazing. Big frosty nugs that smelled amazing. Prices were reasonable compared to other clubs in the area. They had a selection of about 6-7 concentrates and their hash tower. The hash tower is perfect for someone that wants to sample different hashes. Their concentrates were everything from bubble hash to taffy, to wax. They also have the PureGold THC and CBD oils, but those are located near the Omicron( a perfect combo). They also had a decent sized selection of edibles. I haven't smoked flowers in a long time( vape concentrates only) but their bud was so nice it was very tempting, I almost bought some. They let you open the jars and smell them, they also have a light and magnifying glass if you prefer that. They have chopsticks for you to pick up the buds, that is a nice touch that most dispensaries dont offer. Their prices are lower than a lot of other places. Like I said earlier, their Omicron is $30-$70 cheaper than other places, the Pure Gold is $2-$4 cheaper, and their bud is around $10 cheaper than other places around the area as well as being super dank. Even though this dispensary is an hour drive away, I will continue to come here for all my Omicron, PureGold, and concentrate needs. I only gave them 4 stars for accessibility because they are an hour away from me. Don't worry, it is an easy place to find and get to if you live in the area.
Note to SVCare- Hey Guys, this is Derek, I came in on 1/30/12 and bought an Omicron and PureGold. Thank you so much for all your help and for taking the time to answer my questions on the phone. I really appreciate it and I will definitely be back to get more cartridges and Pure Gold when I run out. You guys are the best. Thanks for caring about the patients.

I made a trip to san Jose today to check out a different dispensary(UAWC) because they had some deals, well that dispensary turned out to be complete garbage and I left mad. Before heading over an hour home I decided to pull out my phone and find another dispensary. I came across San jose patients Group. Now on to my review:
All the meds are written on a white board with colored stars next to the strain names. The stars indicate quality of the meds. Red is highest, black is lowest I believe. they have 4 different tiers of meds if I remember correctly.Quality was Not bad. on par with most places around the bay. I have seen better quality but for the price it wasnt bad. I grabbed an 8th of some SSH to check out and they threw in a free gram of my choice( blue star or lower). They just opened a week or two ago so I am sure they are still trying to secure good vendors. I was looking for something to help my horrible migraines. I was reccomended "Soma A+" which looked really good. If I had enough money on me at the time I would have most likel gotten it, Might actually go back within a few days to test that strain out. The Top shelf tier was some goodlooking meds. The meds are laid out in petri dishes like at harborside. THe meds are preweighed, which could bother some people. doesnt bother me as long as its correct weight( my 8th weighed out correctly when I got home). The meds come in a plastic ziplock bag with a SJPG sticker on it.
This dispensary is located in a very nice part of San Jose. I felt completely safe my whole time visiting, which is more than I can say for most clubs. Once inside, the place is well kept and nice. Leather chairs with a waiting area for patients to sit while they fill out 2 forms and get verified. The verification process took less than 5 minutes. They also had magazines laid out on the table to read if there is a long line. Once I was verified I go through another door to the budroom with nice wooden and glass display cases very similar to Harborside. I was once again impressed.
There were 2 gentleman working when I arrived. I believe David is who owns the dispensary and the other gentlemen(sorry I didnt catch his name) was the budtender. They are honestly the nicest people I have met at a dispensary, and I have been to dispensaries all over california writing reviews for different sites. They are really a class act. They wanted to talk and laugh and David even told a couple stories, I probably would have stayed and chatted if I didnt have a migraine at the time. They dont rush you at all when you are browsing and making decisions. I was impressed once again!
I cant put a fair review for this category seeing as I drove all the way from Berkeley to check it out. If I lived in SJ though this would be a different story. It is very convinient to get to if you are located in SJ or surrounding areas. I gave them 5 stars for convience because if I was a SJ resident, this place would be extremely convinient.
Price wasnt bad, 8ths went from $35-$60 I believe. The top shelf grams were only $17. Tax is NOT included, kind of a bummer but most dispensaries do not include tax. Grams were from $13-$17 I believe.
They give you $5 off a gram, $10 off an 8th if you are a new patient. New patients also recieve a free gram of Mid grade or lower with a donation of an 8th! I grabbed a free gram of Cheese becaue I bought an 8th of SSH.
I was impressed by this place, which doesnt usually happen to me as I am very picky. They seem to be modeling themselves after Harborside in Oakland(which isnt a bad thing). If I lived in SJ or surrounding areas this dispensary would be one of my go-to clubs. I am looking forward to returning soon! I went into this dispensary pissed off because the other dispensary had screwed me over, but thanks to David and his staff I left a very happy patient!
