HopeNet

Great ambiance, decent selection

The ambiance in this place is great, with a small lounge and a neighborhood joint feel to it. The display is comprised of one counter with huge tupperware containers that you open up to look at medicine. The quality is good, though not great, and the service is decent, also not spectacular. There will generally be a few strains really worth looking at, while the rest will be decent to bad. Prices are good, and when the medicine is good you can get good deals. This is not my favorite dispensary in the city however, and I wouldn't go to it again unless I was in the neighborhood, and had no time to go elsewhere.

Awesome Service, Awesome Lounge, decent selection.

This is hands down my favorite lounge in the entire Bay Area. The people here are awesome, I volunteer on occasion and really think it's the most laid back, relaxed place to medicate on site in the Bay Area, sometimes there's music, sometimes there's games. The meds range, sometimes they have an amazing selection, sometimes it's only a few things. The meds are never bad, but at times their selection runs really low. Even still, I recommend a visit to this place, if for no other reason than the awesome edibles and hash bar, with great priced flights of various kinds of hash!

Coffeeshop Blue Sky

Generally Meh, once was probably cool.

Once upon a time this place was probably where it was at!! Now adays, not so much. Mostly they run down different Oaksterdam U. Strains as the day goes by, the selection is questionable, the prices are reasonable, and the quality though never terrible, is really never all that great either. Overall, you're better off going somewhere else for your medicine. The atmosphere isn't terrible, but in theory the lounge isn't for medicating, so that doesn't help, though the coffe shop seems cool enough. I've had decent luck with quality there before, but nothing compared to what the rest of the Bay Area has to offer.

The Divinity Tree

Top notch meds, and service

This dispensary, along with Grass Roots, really puts all the others in the city to shame. Both in terms of selection and pricing it is light years beyond most other dispensaries in the city. Their service is great too, with fine folk ready to give great recommendations, and be honest about their meds! I've never walked out of Div Tree feeling jipped, rushed or mistreated. In fact I often times walk out feeling like I was treated like royalty and I got a bargain!

Love Shack

Good vibes, decent meds

Good service, nice folks which is super helpful. Definitely found some interesting strains here, though a lot of things looked mostly dry. There was medicating on site, though only a couple of seats, and I wouldn't call it a lounge, though we did chill there for a couple of minutes. Once again the service from the budtenders was great, and the strains we left with were top notch, but we saw quite a few less than ideal looking strains. Overall, there's definitely something good to get here, but you won't find the uberdank.

Green Door

Not bad, but not great

Green Door gets a lot of online hype, though I can't for the life of me understand exactly why that is. The place is tiny, and looks not unlike a fast food joint, except there's bullet proof glass between you and the cash register. There is a menu on the wall, and you get shown pre weighed bags of medicine that you can open to smell. No display jars of any sort, and the service was terrible the 2 times I went it. I left with some decent medicine, but feeling very wrong and weird. I didn't enjoy the experience at all.

Grass Roots Collective

Best dispensary in the City, hands down.

In terms of quality, and pricing, I truly find that no other dispensary in town is half as good, or interesting. The ambiance is great, despite the sketch factor just outside, with the Bar atmosphere, good music, and nice budtenders to help out. The menu looks like a bar/restaurant menu and always have tons of great things on it, ranging from 40-55 bucks an eighth, and soon as you spend 60 bucks you get a 10 percent discount. There is always good info to be had on new interesting, crazy strains here as the bud tenders seem to care about what they do, and take pride in knowing, at least in theory, what they are selling. Between this place and Div Tree nearby, there is almost no reason to go anywhere else in the city.

Emmalyn's

Shoddy selection, iffy information

I went here expecting an awesome experience, as It was recommended by folks I'd hung out with. Turns out they'd just never been to any other dispensaries. The day I was there my friend and I helped the person working change some erroneously labeled strains into the right categories (sour d labeled indica, and headband pure sativa etc), and the meds didn't smell, look or feel right. Seemed like most things were very very dry. Wound up picking up some cheap Headband that wasn't very good. Overall I wouldn't go back probably.

Great selection, steep prices

Harborside really never ever disappoints when it comes to quality. You will always find something extremely nice there. Problem is you'll often pay 65 dollars an eighth for it. They do sometimes have deals, especially on sundays with the 420 discount packs. That said, their model for giant dispensaries owned by a small group all over Cali makes me nervous, I don't want Pot Wal Marts all over that place. Despite that fact though, you can't knock them, the service is fast and easy, the meds are high quality and the space is super friendly and inviting. Still not my favorite dispensary in the east bay however.

East Bay Patients Association

Good prices, ok selection

East Bay Patients Association is home to the only outdoor lounge in the bay area I believe, which is great. Their selection however, and the fact that they are in richmond, and constantly going through hassles with the city council, makes it a rare stop. I get their email updates, and occasionally am impressed with the menu, so I'll go in to take a look. It's pretty 50/50 whether I walk out with something or not, but when they do have something nice it's usually fantastic(Tangerine Dream comes to mind) and at a great price,especially since they discount for quantity. Overall, this place has potential, but it rarely materializes into goodness. It's worth checking out though, and the outdoor lounge is worth seeing.

7 Stars Holistic Healing Center

Weird location, meh quality meds.

I've been to 7 stars a couple of times now, and both times disappointed me a bit. The meds were very dry, except for one strain, and the quality seemed fairly low, and with fairly high prices. Given their odd location inside a mall, which makes walking in and out weird, and the fact that they are across the street from EBPA, makes it tough to justify going back here very often. Supposedly their extracts are really good, though I haven't given them a try yet.

Berkeley Patients Group

Great service, Good Folks, Great Selection

The service is super friendly here, and people are always willing to help out with info and advice. The meds speak for themselves, and given the high traffic rate the dispensary has the ability to change it's board almost entirely on a bi weekly basis. It's great to come in 3 days after your last visit and see an almost entirely new board. They often times have Mega Mixes (55-60 dollar strains for 40 bucks), and grab bag grams. They also have great deals on display jars, which are 2.2 grams on average and get discounted from the Gram price. Overall this is definitely the one dispensary I hit up if I only have time to go to one. They rarely dissapoint.

Small selection, High Prices, Good Quality

This place is tiny, and obviously no lounge on site, however the quality of the meds is almost always top notch. They frequently have great Chem strains(chem dawg, headband, sour d, Og Kush etc) as well as some randoms like Morning Star, Peak 19 and others. Their quality is great, usually, however their prices are the highest around, and there are never any deals. Also rarely are any strains under 50 bucks worth looking at. They have an amazing Hash Chocolate that is out of this world, and the service is fast and friendly. Oh and there's an ATM on site that doesn't charge a ton in service fees, which is cool.

Oakland Patient Center

Great Meds, Great Prices.

This dispensary is without a doubt the best one near Oaksterdam, and the only one worth checking out in downtown Oakland in fact. There is always a great selection, and the prices are awesome. They'll often have interesting rare strains ( Sour Dawg, Cheeziel) and just as often have a great bargain on a couple of strains. The service is always friendly, quick and informative. They also give discounts on purchases over 150 bucks, which is pretty sweet.

Sour Dawg YUM!

Sour Dawg YUM!

Great strain, great smell, great flavor. Goodness all around. Smooth hitting, burns right and lights great on paper or in a piece. Overall one of the tastiest strains you'll find at this place, if you're lucky! The looks are great, with very little leaf to bud ratio, and the price was awesome! I don't know what else to say about this strain other than it was delicious, and worked wonders for me!
