Dispensary Review:

Green Door

Best weed for best prices

I've shopped around a bit and I'm thinking Green Door is probably the best value for my money (plus it's close to my office). I would say the comparable weed that goes for $55-60 at somewhere like Apothecarium sells for $40 at Green Door. The management is a bit haphazard, and a noob might be intimidated by the vendors sitting behind bulletproof glass and chaotic lines (including an Express line that always goes slower than the rest), but the weed is great, and it's usually very quick in and out, with prepacked 8ths and a good system that keeps a large user base flowing.

It's not a place to sit and chat up an employee about this and that, but they do seem knowledgeable. Because of the glass divider, you'll need to speak up and possibly repeat yourself.

Platinum Cookies or Hollywood Kush for $49/8th is tough to beat. A bonus is that you get to see a great cross-section of the city and its visitors. Plus, Green Door + chilling at Yerba Buena Gardens + stuffing your face at Bucca di Beppo ain't a bad day.

Purple Trichomes

Killer light sativa at a Giants special price. Great smell and taste. Ah, gotta make this one a little longe, I guess ... I dunno ... if you liked Blueberry back in the day, Juicy Fruit is a bump up. Snootch?

Dispensary Review:

The Apothecarium - Castro

Dense weed, dense (friendly) staff, excellent edibles

A higher-end establishment, as you can tell from the decor. The staff is friendly and mostly very stoned, which is fine, but recommendations seems to be all over the map. The Flowers I've seen are all pretty dense, with *strong* aroma--the higher priced stuff is among the best weed I've ever had--the stuff does what it says on the tin, er plastic bag. Or plastic (non air tight) prescription bottle.

Their edibles, oils, and specialty stuff (kief, etc.) are extensive. Establishment is clean is well lit and very friendly, but there is no place to medicate (I don't think), and the little waiting room is sort of annoying. I realize people need advice, but the setup tends to encourage slowness for the sake of slowness.

Bonus points for being able to re-use containers, but minus points for no non-plastic options on containers. For the prices, it would be nice if they included to include a re-usable, airtight, glass container. A very good dispensary overall, for high-end customers.

Girl Scout Power

Well, I swore I'd never pay $60+ for an 1/8 again, but here we are... Girl Scout Cookies is a great strain for pain relief when remaining productive and still providing a euphoric lift for those suffering from social anxiety or depression. It is a chatterbox/happy worker type strain. Not super cerebral for me, but definitely mood elevating. Very, very dense--so much so that I would not recommend for bowl smoking. Needs to be grinded and vaporized.
