Mission Organic Dispensary San Francisco
Humble. That’s a great way to describe this quaint, yet powerfully stocked San Francisco cannabis club. Being one of the original dispensaries in the city, Mission Organic doesn’t need a whole stretch of real estate in order to announce its greatness. Rather, they have comfortably nestled themselves within a city block that’s littered with a number of other local businesses, each of which enjoying their own levels of success.
This moderate establishment isn’t hard to miss, but it may be hard to find parking. However, should you brave the chaos that is driving in San Francisco, you will soon find yourself a metered parking spot within walking distance of this amazing establishment. With its square footage rivaling that of an ice cream shop or shoe store, this little dispensary makes the most of its small stature by providing the local cannabis community with a laundry list of products, all of which are of the highest quality. Each visit here is a breeze, and it’s almost impossible to walk out of Mission Organic without a massive smile (and a baggy full of THC-infused goodies), they are really that amazing. Even though parking may be a bit of a hassle, I would gladly weather any sort of vehicular storm in order to pay this incredible dispensary a visit – and you should too.
The overall vibe of this place is equal parts professional and comfortable. The second you head into this tiny storefront, you’ll spot a security guard seated at a kiosk. They take your identification, per the usual, and either enter you in or check you into their system, depending on if you are a returning customer or not. Also, like most other dispensaries, they make it clear that this is a “No Cell Phone” zone. Any customers who absentmindedly pull out their phones whilst in line will kindly be reminded to stow it until they are back on the street. This is, obviously, to help their patrons maintain a certain level of privacy while shopping for some much-needed medicine.
In addition to that, newcomers should be aware that there is no “waiting room” here. As soon as you walk in, you are, effectively, in their showroom. Simply find your place in their segmented line, and scurry through their tiny store, until it is your turn to be helped by one of their many well-educated budtenders. When you are in line, you can check out their menu located above and behind their display counter/register area. If you happen to want a THC-infused beverage, be sure to pick one up in the far corner of the dispensary before being helped. But, if drinks aren’t your main goal, you can simply wait patiently until it’s your time to step up and pick out some quality buds.
From the curb, you may assume that this place only has a smattering of THC goodies to offer their patrons. But, boy, oh boy – how wrong you would be. This place, despite its incredibly small building, has a menu that is filled to the brim with high-quality items that will please even the pickiest of cannabis enthusiasts.
Flowers, edibles, vapes, concentrates, topicals…they even have some quality vape batteries and papers for those who are eager to fire up their newly purchased goods. Also, if you are thinking about starting a homegrow of your own, Mission Organic is more than happy to help out. No, they don’t have any clones for sale, but they are happy to distribute a number of highly-potent seeds for any curious cannabis lover on the verge of cultivating their own supply.
In my professional opinion, I’d say this location specializes in flowers and concentrates primarily. That’s not to say that their edible and drinkable selection is too scant to admire. Quite the opposite actually. I often find myself picking up a little of this and a little of that every single time I pay this San Francisco landmark a visit. It’s hard not to, to be honest.
Standard in every single regard. That’s pretty much the most accurate way to describe the average price point of products found on Mission Organic’s menu. Their flowers, which are mostly sold in eighths and up, are par for the course, as far as pricing is concerned. However, should you be looking for some quality bud without spending too much, I’d suggest perusing their wide selection of pre-rolled joints. They regularly carry some of the strongest strains available for a fraction of the price, compared to their larger quantities.
While their selection of concentrates is impressive, I must admit that these prices find themselves a bit on the higher end of the spectrum. But, rightfully so, as each of these items is possessing some of the highest potency percentages on the market today. Their selection of hash is decent and moderately priced, but if you’re a seasoned dabber looking to splurge on a super strong item, this is the place to go – no doubt about it.
To be completely forthright, I think the only downside to this place is the lack of parking. But, that isn’t really their fault. This section of the city doesn’t allow for any business to set up their own dedicated lot to customers, so you’ll just have to make due. However, if you go during the early parts of the day, before lunch, you are likely to score a spot nearby without any sort of issue. At least, that has been the case for me, anyway.
Parking aside, this place is downright phenomenal. The staffers aren’t only knowledgeable of their extensive menu, but they are the epitome of polite. You will feel more than comfortable asking them any and all questions about products, as the entire environment of this place is seemingly dedicated to customer service. I have nothing but great things to say about Mission Organic and the next time I realize my stash is starting to dwindle, I’m going to head over to this beloved haven of San Francisco cannabis, and I strongly suggest you do the same.
