Okay, so- first I just have to put it out there that I think their bud quality is OUTSTANDING! Their Jack Herer, Blackberry Kush, and GDP are all amazing! But...
#1- It's so damn dark in there! I totally understand that they are trying to go for the mellow, chill, atmosphere; but dude, I can't even seeee the bud! They do have a really awesome jewelers magnifying lamp thing, which I love. But I have to ask them to pull out a million different strains because I can't see what they look like in the case. I think a few simple lights in the cases in which they keep the bud would really go a long way!
#2- I loved that this girl bud tender recognized me on only my second time in, but one of the other girl bud tenders, though nice, was a little slow. I mean it just took her flippin forever to do everything! Herself and the other co-worker/bud tender seemed very preoccupied that day.
#3- I guess I like that they don't pre-weigh, but they don't even weigh it in front of you- so whats the point?! That just really annoys me!! Maybe it's just me being paranoid, since they deliberately weigh it where you CAN'T SEE, but I feel like my bags are a little light. I'll start weighing immediately when I get home...
#4- It sort of seems like they have some things listed here for $50/$55 that are really $60 when you go in. But I'm NOT SURE about that. Which brings me to my next point, I HATE paying $60 for an 1/8th of top shelf! For some reason $60 just hurts me so much more than $55; which I typically pay at my more regular clubs for top shelf. But, I'll admit, it has been worth it to me to pay $5 more to get something I feel like is really great quality.
#5- I know they can't do anything about this, but parking lot SUUUCKS!!!
Overall- I think I'm just coming back because I love their grower! They are a pretty decent club, but I think they need to make a few small adjustments! I'll keep coming back!
I come to PHC regularly, and I am proud to call it my “home dispensary”! Here’s why: first off, when you walk in the front room they are friendly, and there’s no being harassed like at some of the other clubs. The secretary is always friendly and the check-in process is quick and painless. There is always a great selection of bud, AMAZING quality, and they weigh it right there on the spot in front of you! Also, you can get whatever amount you want! Whether you are ballin or just want a bowl pack, PHC is the place for you! All in all, this place is bad ass and they have excellent selection. I recommend this place to anyone that hasn't been there yet.
1/9/2011 *UPDATED REVIEW*
PHC has been my home for a while, but unfortunately, lately I've been having to venture out to new territory. I'm just gonna be brutally honest here:
#1- Some of the bud tenders are beginning to seem really stuck up and kind of big headed. Like maybe they are too cool for school. On the other hand, there are still a FEW bud tenders that work there that I really like and that have always been pleasant and more than helpful! Also, I have been getting 10% off coupons (Which is awesome!! I'm assuming for being a good customer), but I haven't wanted to use them yet. :(
#2- I'm sorry, but some of that BS that you are calling "top shelf" is NOT top shelf! Also, the past two times I have been in I have left disappointed, and on my last visit empty handed. Since I have been such a loyal customer, I have basically had EVERYTHING on their menu. Nothing new has come in for quite a while, and although some of the regular strains they provide are great, most of the time I want to try something different. They have a few strains I would come back and purchase regularly, but I think they really need to get some new stuff in, pronto!
#3- Baked goods section has been slacking. :(
#4- Haven't gotten anything from PHC that has "knocked my socks off" in a quite a while.
Sorry, I still love you guys, but have been so disappointed recently.
