If you are lucky enough to be in or around the Oakland area, these are the TOP dispensaries in the region that are head-and-shoulders above the competition.
This place is charming, it feels like I am pulling up to grandma’s house to buy some weed. Seriously. This obviously refurbished establishment offers up low ceilings and not a lot of walking room – but if one is smart enough to come prepared with a shopping list of items (found on their menu), the entire experience is a sincere breeze. They could use a slight increase in variability in their menu, to be honest – but their average price point has local stoners routinely coming back whenever their stash starts to run low.
Tucked behind the security of a gate guarding their customer-only parking lot, stands this mundane building off the always-populated San Pablo Avenue in the quaint college town of Berkeley. It is a bit tough to spot from the street, but if one is aware to be mindful of the passing addresses as they approach, they will have no issue finding this dispensary. Inside, they have their establishment segmented to help out those who pre-ordered their buds online and those looking to make an impulse buy. The organization of this place is phenomenal, and it is one of the main reasons this affordable (and super friendly) location made the list.
