Dispensary Review:

Potomac Holistics -- Legacy

Friendly, knowledgeable, calming environment

So the whole industry is new, and you have to look past issues that are outside of the control of the dispensary. Everyone who works here is nice, just really nice. It's super cool that on top of that, they really know the product and can help you find what you need to ease the symptoms you have. I had initially been very resistant to the idea of using a balm to topically treat neuropathy, but they convinced me and it has changed my life. The dispensary is clean, calming, and efficient. Compared to other local dispensaries, I feel the pricing at Potomac Holistics falls right in the middle - there's both higher and lower prices at other nearby places. Potomac Holistics will win my business because of the convenience of their location, and the awesomeness of everyone who works there.

Great for Neuropathy - no menthol stuff - about half the price of the competition

Dixie Synergy Balm has changed my life. I suffer from chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy and have been reliant upon a pretty heavy prescription medication that comes with some delightful side effects (it makes me dumb as hell). I was skeptical at first about using a topical product for nerve pain relief, but it really works, and it works very well. I have been able to reduce my prescription dose to 1/3 of what it was. Since I use this on my hands, having a balm without the menthol (or whatever it is) is really quite nice - no worries about transferring menthol from hands to eyes (it'll make your eyes water for hours). Being about $30 cheaper is also a really big plus. My hands are very soft and my cuticles are in great shape, too. I love Dixie Synergy Balm!

Pineapple Skunk

A good way to wind down after the workday

While at the dispensary, I overheard several very enthusiastic accolades for the Pineapple Skunk, so I decided to follow their glowing recommendations. This is a hard hitter, but it isn't heavy. It's calming but not sedating. It smokes easy, but take is easy! A little bit does the job. Very nice. Heady, and lightly body. This is great for easing out of "work mode" and into "chill mode" without putting you to sleep.

Great for Neuropathy

I have chemo-therapy induced neuropathy in my hands and feet. The big-pharma treatment is a drug which works pretty well but makes you dumb as hell. I was skeptical to try, but I have been able to manage daytime pain well enough to reduce the dose to 1/3 what it was. The cooling sensation is probably a plus for a lot of people, but I'd prefer without it - since I use it on my hands, it's easy to accidentally get it places where the cooling sensation isn't pleasant, like my eyes. A lovely side effect is very soft skin, my usually-ragged cuticles are soft and pretty.
