TLC

TLC is such an awesome place to go. First you think you be going to an business building to go to this shop but NO it is at a home and it feels just right and the staff just make you feel like it home, so at ease. There's a lobby at the entrance and couch to sit comfortable while you wait and pix on walls to look, magazines to read.....just like home!! When they call your name and let you in to see what's available. WOW, there's so much to choose and the meds are awesome! You can't go wrong with this place, the staffs and the meds. So stop by and check out the place for yourself and you will find it awesome!!
Keep it real TLC!!

Blueberry Yum Yums

This strain is very unique and has it own character. This flower is beautiful sticky pungent, so sweet to the nose. The flower is amazing medicine! When the medicine starts to kick in, it's a seldom creeper and you start to feel really good and then the head change is quite intense. The cerebral high was slow long change and felt like it never stop! There's this thickness you feel in the head but nothing negative about it , it just thick in the head! Again, amazing head change and body high. Very uplifting and enjoyable and no paranoia feeling just happy! Very nice strain and interesting. We had Honeycomb Haze immediately cleared the thickness in our head! Just amazing! Thanks Apothecarium!

Cotton Candy

Beautiful large fluffy flower with fuzzy trichomes and resins. The smells so pungent and very fruity and earthy. Very sticky though. This strains remind me of GSC and when grind it is quite chunky with lots of resins. Great head change and nice body effects - helps in aching area of the body and somewhat more Sativa in the beginning and driven to Indica toward the end. Really awesome strain!
I hope the Apothecarium will eventually will get some more of this Cotton Candy. Thumbs up Apothecarium !!!

Afgoo Full Sun

Afgoo is known to be an Indica strain. This buds looks so beautiful for a full sun and the aroma is just so nice sweet smell. Afgoo is serious about easing the pain! It does a wonder job! This strain tend to be heavy body effects and certainly couch lock. Don't need too much to inhale and a small few hits then the medicine will take care of it. Proper medicine for insomnia and for aching joints patients. Beautiful quality all around!
Thanks Apothecarium's staff!!

Res. Congo got this fine sweet, sour and lemon scent to me. Very pleasant head change and very nice uplifting and energetic and it makes you want to do something. The quality of the buds is superb, fluffy and very nice crunchy when grind. This is a strain for enjoyment, motivate, socialize and a feel good about yourself! I really like Red Congo because it not too strong of head change but it last about two hours of happiness!

WhamBam Alpha Blue

I'll give a five star for this strain. The buds are nicely sticky and in between nuggets and large buds, very strong aroma, hint of some piney taste but everything about it is impressive. I bought this recently and I thought it has the highest CBD but I read it wrong, it is the THC number that has the higher percentage. When I took the medicine and the next thing I know 'WhamBamAlphaBlue' !! What a hard core head change this buds provide, instantly, and then the next thing I know I was starting to feel somewhat a creeper during the cerebral high! Very uplifting and I dont know about clarity in the first hour but after that yes and Absolutely yes pain free, almost as good as morphine based on my experience. This strain is good for having fun with friends or after work. great with music. I can see why that this strain got 2nd place in Denver and San Francisco High Times Medical Cannabis Cup for Sativa. I would've given a four stars for the length of effect but overall it's a five stars. Enjoy this crazy intense buds for a wild change! Thanks Apothecarium!

SuperDawg buds smells very much like Chemdawg/Sour Diesel and the sizes are varies and very much like nugget style. The head change on this SuperDawg has a strong effects and more intense than the Chemdawg and still functional though and it last quite a while for me personally. A nice sweet taste in the beginning and a hint of spicy when exhale and somewhat smooth. Very energetic. If you like a real head change that stays a while then you'll like this very much and not so much feeling like paranoia of any kind. You will enjoy this at any time of the day. Thanks to The Apothecarium.

J-27

Ok, this J-27 Dutch strains from the 90's has a real nice nuggets style with a real nice mellow soft pungent to the nose. I have to agree with the other reviewer by Gorgonight that it 'feels like a chill Sativa'. That defines J-27! J-27 have a very nice smooth taste and almost unnoticeable when inhale, very nice to the throat. Ok, the medicine really knock off pretty much any pains in the surrounding body. Not so much head changes but very functional, uplifting, enjoyable to socialize, good feeling and gives you giggle feeling too. Very good body high, not to harsh but very lovely, comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable. For those who wants a very comfortable head change along with a nice comfortable body high, then this strain may be the one for you. Five Stars for this unique Dutch strain. Thank you the Apothecarium and the grower for bringing this fine strain.

Cloud's Rest

Ok I wanted to give a Cloud's Rest an applauds for its pain reliever and I had a sore lower back from a small muscle spasms from work and when work was done and when I had a chance to have the Cloud's Rest to see if it ease the pain and my reaction was 'WOW'. This strain has really helps in those area a lot and the next day I was feeling just about 80% improvement from the lower back aches, again thinking 'WOW'. the strain has a very nice interesting scent and the flower was very chunky after grinding. Very instant head change that last a while and somewhat a little harsh on the throat (from a rolled hemp paper with filter). First time tried and Australian flower that is grown in NorCal. I am impress and I recommend to anyone who have any kind of pains and the head change is rather intense though. I don't know if I was resting on a cloud....mmmm. Thanks to the Apothecarium!

Mango Mango!

This Mango is so awesome!! I really enjoy it. This strain has a great aroma and it is sticky somewhat and gorgeous dank buds!! Very smooth, sweet and tasty. It is somewhat better than Banana Kush and almost as good as Grape Ape. The strain gave me a stoney head change with a feeling like I was drunk in a way. This is another great strain for sleeping. Mango is a sleepy beauty but Grape Ape topped it. Really really helpful for Insomnia, pain reliever and it somewhat gave me some munchies as well. I love it ... what can I say...go get some Mango if you need some helps in sleeping time. Five Stars for Mango! Apothecarium you've done it again! Thank you, Thank you and Thank you!

Full Sun Sour Diesel

I really love this strain, Sour Diesel. If you want something that motivate you and do like housecleaning or just walking around in your favorite park, beach or shopping. This will keep you going and feeling really good about yourself. There's a good head change in the beginning and then soon you are alert and focus to do whatever you like. The flower has a very nice pungent sweet aroma and it taste really nice when inhale. The effects really last about two hours. Some pain relief. I really enjoy this strain. Great price for a full sun, can't beat it!

"Bubblegum, what"!!??

First time I ever purchase Bubblegum from the Apothecarium (Thanks to them). Made a fine filtered size joint. This strain has a very nice fruity taste with a fine smooth, almost unnoticeable, when inhale. The smells has a sweet soft flavour. This strain gives off a nice slow long head trip change. Then comes the body high - it was very there. Bubblegum makes you want to do something for a while in the beginning and then it makes you wants to relax and enjoy afterward. For music-lover its great when listening to music and it can make you concentrate on something if you permit. Very enjoyable and relaxing. A friend asked "what stain is this"? I said "Bubblegum" and his replied was "Bubblegum, what"!!?? We end up loving it!

Dispensary Review:

The Apothecarium - Castro

5 Star for Apothecarium

One day my partner and I walked by the Apothecarium and noticed that it was a medical dispensary and we took one day to get our Certificate and brought to the Apothecarium and we signed up. We were introduced by a very nice fellow at the entrance, gave us some information and gave us a menu to look through while we wait. We sat at the waiting area, we look around this high ceiling room with those beautiful design wallpaper, pictures of flowers on the one side of the wall and we were notify by the budtenders and we went to the high large marble table and a large mirror front of us and several lighted-magnified on the table and the budtenders explained everything how it works. So we were sitting on this tall chair and starting to explore the flowers and the qualiaty of the flowers they have are SUPERB!! The staff are amazing, informative, friendly, knowledgeable, patience, understandable and they just made us feel very vey comfortable! We found a dispensary that call home. Thanks you all at the Apothecarium!! Keep up the great work!! Keep those spirits up high and alive!
Thank you, Thank you and Thank you.

Jilly Bean!

I enjoy this medicine Jilly Bean. The word Jilly Bean is a perfect description when meditated! It is a very nice strain, very pleasant, it has a very nice euphoric high with a nice alertness, make you feel great and makes you laugh if you are around with some silly people! it also help relieves pains. Can be use for daytime use and/or anytime. The quality of the flower is great and fresh, the taste was smooth and the smell is like fruity with a hint of rosemary/lavender , the strength was strong and the effects last about two hours with a nice finish. Worth every penny of it.

Grape Ape have the sweetest scent and the quality of the flower was superb!! This strain is the best for insomnia and if this is what you're looking for - get it - it is so worth it if you need a real good night sleep - this is it- I love it. It doesn't give me the couch lock feel but it sure helps when you're ready to sleep (best best best). All around Grape Ape is very effective. Thanks to those who made Grape Ape! I give Grape Ape a five star rating for insomnia conditions.
