My First Visit: Nectar on 122nd Ave

Recommended Posts

I travel past this dispensary regularly, it looks really nice on the outside, and they had a good website. 

 
On the day of my visit, the dispensary was as nice to visit as it was to pass by. The grounds were well maintained with lush grass, pruned plants, and a cute fence. My service dog really enjoyed the trees and lawn.The waiting room was clean and large enough for a half-dozen people to wait comfortably, if necessary. The receptionist was friendly, efficient, and polite. She made me feel welcome and at ease. 
 
Nectar was cash only at the time (and may still be), though the signage made it seem that might be a temporary condition. There was no ATM, but the receptionist pointed me toward two. One was easy walking (two blocks).
 
The shop was nice, with lots of room to wander and look while others are being helped. Even though I was the only one there, I asked for a moment to look around before asking for help. Here's where things got weird. 
 
The guy helping me was either clueless, misinformed, or deceitful. First, he tried telling me that high CBD is for pain, indica is for everything else, and sativa is for recreation. What!? When I called him on it, he didn't acknowledge what I said, but then started showing me sativa products. Then, he kept calling strains, "flavors." In his sales pitch, the only difference from one strain to another is flavor and you should pick the one that tastes the best. Then, he sold me vape products that didn't work together. I didn't think they would, but he promised and I was tired of fighting him.
 
They didn't work, which pissed me off a bit, but it also gave me an excuse to go back and see if it was the shop or just him. When I went back, I was greeted warmly and sent back. There were three different employees behind the counter, but all were helping people. That was fine until the door opened and the guy from the day before came out to help me. 
 
He was totally confused about the vape. When I asked him the best way to solve it, he just looked at me. I suggested we swap batteries, which he agreed to. He didn't think it would work, but it was a good first step. I asked him if there was a price difference or if it was an even swap and he just looked at me. At this point, I knew they had to be within $5 of one another, so I just put it in my bag and asked him if we needed to do any paperwork. He shook his head and waved, so I walked out.

Note: According to their Leafly page, they do have an ATM in the "flower room." My visit was two weeks ago, so it's possible the "cash only" change is permanent and they have had an ATM installed.

I have never been impressed with Nectar's staff of knowledge everywhere, but it is a general malaise it seems within the dispensaries I have visited. They do have decent medicines, decent pricing, but it is a very 'bro' shop in my mind.

 

It is odd to me that so much of the community is about THC vs CBD, when simply getting ripped for two weeks on hash and then smoking flowers would show you that it's about so much more than potentcy.

 

Thank you very much for the honest review, I am always hesitant to be negative in my reviews!
