  • Report A Detroit Alternative

    Very pleased with my visit to A Detroit Alternative. Quick paperwork is too be filled out upon first arrival but There was a giant selection of wax, the most I've ever seen at a Dispense. Snagged the UK Cheese and Strawberry Cough, very happy with both Dabs. The menu was also up-to-date with all the Tree Strains. Ken (owner) was very helpful during the choosing process. Prices were great, had a handful of nice strains at a $10 donation, had many others at $15. Smoked a gram blunt of some $10 Plush Lemon Berry and felt medicated for almost 2 hours. Price is right, Bud is great. Go give A Detroit Alternative a visit!

  • Report Still my local fave!

    I started going to ADA back when I got my card because it was local to me and they've been nothing but great to me since, so naturally I keep going! This place consistently has some of the best medicine around and at extremely fair donation amounts. Ken's been turning me onto wax now too and soon I'll have an up and running rig so I can start sampling some of their wax variety, which I hear is the best around. I'll always be a flower guy at heart, though, and getting most of my flower here, I can say I've always been completely satisfied with every strain I've walked out of ADA with. Great place. Don't be afraid to drive a few miles into Detroit to get here; you won't get killed or anything! It's worth the trip. Plus, they're gated in and in a well-populated area so don't be a wuss and get your ass to ADA.

  • Report Honored

    Let me start off by restating the title "Honored". Thats how i felt leaving ADA. When first arriving it seemed pretty shady with an old bank being a dispensary but the gated fence and surveilence was nice. The front entrance is small but then lead into a decent sized bud room. I was greeted very professionally and sadly the only name I remember is Ken. The reason I felt very honored because Ken found out who I was by guessing if I was KenChow and said he had been waiting for me:) Already, I couldnt wait to get started. He gave me a dab on the house out of his sweet oil rig before I put my order together. I got Heart OG, Diamond OG, Girl Scout Cookies. These strains and his others are Top Shelf FIRE. Best OG selection Ive seen. Unbeatable Prices. No Lie, unbeatable for the OG's because I will be back. 30 minute drive ehh whatever :D I also scooped up Death Star, and #29 wax. Talk about having potency! Some of the more stronger wax Ive had in awhile. I also like how theres THC % lab test results up on the menu. All in all a small space, but with super competitve prices for the best medicine around, ADA cant be beat. Thank you Ken and everyone there! See ya soon

    A Detroit Alternative has the best and largest selection of meds I have ever seen. I just donated $50 for an eighth of Diamond OG, which I paid $75 for at another club, and it wasn't half as strong. I can't believe all their top shelf is only $15 a gram!! Don't waste your time shopping anywhere else, this is the place to go if you want the great meds and really good service. Jason is the man and really knows what he's doin! Thanks bud!!

  • Report Hay

    Ok this is more then a few days old due to a short hospital stay .
    I got me some of that dark green looking hillbilly surprise the other day. Normally I wont get wax that looks as dark as it but like the name said I was surprised and it had some nice flavor and decent punch. All in all I would compare it to the cheeze wax that Kenny had earlier in the year.
    One thing you never have to worry about with this place is the strength of what you are buying.
    Ken might not have the cushy sitting room with the big flat screen tv or the scantly dressed receptionist with big tits.(man I love that chic!)What Ken has is bud that is almost strong enough to get you high threw the bag for 15 a gram hold the bullshit.I am sorry if all the other places get upset about this but there is NOTHING COMPASSIONATE about charging 25 dollars for a fucking gram.I don't care if it gets up and rolls its self.

    Once again thanks for the awesome job your doing Ken Jason and Kyle.

    i have been here about 10 times now and have never been let down. i've been smoking for about 12yrs now and have traveled all around the world looking for great bud. these flowers compare to some of the worlds best. i will gladly drive the 45 minutes each way, knowing i'm getting a quality well built product. i would suggest the Hearts, Demon, Skywalker, Raskals, and Bubba.
    Pretty much any of the Lando line is killers.

    First review of anything ever!
    First ever visit to a facility of this nature. I wanted to see what's up at these places. I called first and let them know I was a nubie and I'd like to visit with them. C'mon down I was told.
    I was greeted in a secure and professional manner. You MUST fill out some forms and provide them with your documentation and you can get admitted.
    The smell was more heavenly than the perfume aisle at Macy's...like roadkill skunk!
    Once I saw the variety I went back to my childhood in the local Hobby Shop on Saturday to buy a model car and paint for the week.
    The staff (Joe and Jason) were personable, polite and professional. They could answer all my questions and explain everthing without hesitation. I was salivating over the strains I knew and there was so much more.
    The Waxes looked like a Kilwin's Fudge case. So many item to choose from. It was overwhelming...
    I may go to other facilities to browse, but I've found a safe atmosphere that put my comfort level at ease.
    Did I mention the prices...they are the Walmart's of this new marketplace. See for yourselves.
    I rate them 10 Stars on everthing. Better that a 5.0 by far!

  • Report THE FINEST!!!

    I just hit up Ann Arbor and Ypsi this past weekend while I was visiting friends. Yeah, great bud out there, but overpriced. You can get better stuff here in good old Detroit at way better prices. I've been to places up north like Traverse City and out in Lansing too. Probably 25 different places in all. Nothing can compare to ADA.

    The buds are always well cured and trimmed. They smell and taste great, and the potency is always there. The cheap stuff is even good, and they always have a huge selection for every budget.

    Best medibles I've had, and they actually taste great too. And they are dirt cheap.

    The wax is killer, and for fifty a G, affordable. I mean holy crap I almost fell over after a dab. Have a chair and some water nearby!

    The staff is awesome and treats me like family. If you haven't been here, you're missing out!

    Ok went down to get some full melt wax and as always here is what else I got!
    I picked up some pre 98 but I have not smoked it yet so all I can tell you about it is it looks and smells like I am going to have to cancel some plans!
    I got 2 different kinds of medables this time. The pecan squares are always very strong and also tasty as well.This kinda surprised me at how good they taste the first time I bought them since I don't usually like the taste of medables. I also got White Chocolate toffee truffles which is what I ate when I got home and what I am mainly reviewing. First there strong.I have had to use back space more then a few times writing this.About a hour or so they start kicking in and if you eat both your going to need to stay where you are .
    Thanks once again for showing me something new ill be back for some more!

An 8th of their skywalker og has lasted me almost 2 weeks, and that's a LONG time for a connoisseur of fine cannabis myself. I will definitely be hitting DA again..and again.

  • Report A True Alternative

    Detroit Patients, You need to check this place out!!! This is by far the best dispensary around for a few different reasons. D.A. is what patients have been looking for years! Quality Flower that is completely economical. If you're looking for Quality meds this is honestly the place. Top shelf flower for $15 a gram (I swear by the San Fernando Valley OG)or premium flower for $10 a gram( I tried Allen Wrench last night, fruity and super head.) The medibles are the best in the city on price and dosage $5 a square. The wax deserves a review on its own. I honestly appreciate what Ken and Jason do on a daily basis, thank you for valuing your patients with honest prices and high quality meds. You make it easier for me (a patient and student) an anyone else who struggles to afford high quality meds. You are setting a new standard for Detroit. I hope more people recognize.

  • Report I can honestly give 5 stars all-around

    This. Is. The. Spot.

    Safe location. Gated lot. Locked doors.

    ADA is the best. I started coming here the day they opened. I was treated like family since then, and now when I come to the clinic I am still given the utmost respect. The staff never rushes me and they're honest about what bud is appropriate for your symptom/condition.
    Ken is the man and the other budtenders like Jason are great people too. The edibles (and bud) here are the best you'll find, guaranteed. They're very potent, kept fresh and DELICIOUS too. ..If you're low on cash, they will work with you. They always have a handful of cheap grams that are still really good(no $75 / 8th nonsense donations). Even the top shelf has reasonable donations. You get a wide variety of bud here. The "Lando" line is all super duper dank. If you like wax, this is the place to get it. The wax is one-hitter quitter...grab a bottle of water and a chair for your dabs lol. I overheard some other patients ranting and raving. About the wax quality as well. truly get the impression that ADA puts patients way ahead of profit. This truly is the best dispensary I've been to, and I've been to about 15-20. This is the place to go for sure. My only suggestion would be something like "free pre-roll with $50 donation" type deal.

    A can honestly say this is the only shop i have been too that makes to REALLY HARD to choose ur flowers/wax/kief and ebibles. EVERTHING they carry is STRAIGHT FIRE even the 10/g strains are fire as hell for the price. Not like 99% of the other place 10/g. And if ur an Og person like me then ADA's got Elite Top Shelf Og's grown to the T and not rushed like alot of other places, so it got MAX flavor and potancy. This place has the best BANG for ur donation shit i drive 43 miles one way from Monroe to go here once a week to stock up. so that ahould say something i have 20+ years smokeing so i know the goods when i see them and ken has the goods. ty again bro

  • Report Dear Pain b gone.

    Dear Painbgone.
    I was reading your review and I guess I am confused.
    I agree that Jason is friendly helpful and knows a lot about bud. All that was all on the line but what I am confused about is the part about Ken.
    Ken has pulled 5 bucks out of his pocket cus I was short 5 on wax before. You are right in one respect about Ken. No he doesn't care about your money. He cares about the people he is helping.He cares about the people that come from all over the state cus he has the best wax this side of cali.
    He cares about people that cant afford much so he makes sure that everything you buy from the cheapest pre roll to the most expensive thing he sells is top notch. If you buy a dime of the worst bud on his shelf you could turn around and sell it for double to almost any dispensary in the area.
    It is a shame you didn't take more time to get to know Ken because you're going to miss out on some really good bud and excellent wax.

    On a side note I am saving up for more Wax ill be there as soon as I can.

    FRIDAY was my first visit to this place Jason the budtender was very helpful and compassionate even tempered and patient. The black gentleman i dont recall his name i was told he was a volunteer was also helpful and compassionate.Ken who i had heard so much about as being top of the line was not up to the standards of Jason and the Black gentleman. I can overlook the scary parking lot and hood the place used to be nbd a mostly drive through bank but i got the impression from ken that my business was not wanted at his shop i have been to almost all the shops in detroit and all the budtenders and owners were greatttt you can have the best meds around but how you treat people is first in my book.The inside of the place was small another cause of concern maybe 3 or 4 seats folks may be feel a bit cramped

    It is one thing to give a bad review and its another to flat out lie.
    My name is John I have tattoos on my head so I sort of stick out.I do not work for ADA nor do I receive or have a financial stake there. I do however come to this place a lot.As I have said in many of my posts I live 1 and a half miles from Helping hands yet I almost always come to ADA which is a 20 to 30 min drive. The owner puts his top shelf on sale all the time and his bottom shelf would do well sitting on the top shelf of every other place this side of Ann Arbor. On top of having very high quality bud Ken goes out of the way to make people feel like friends and not just some guy buying from him.
    I am sorry that you feel that a friendly relaxed atmosphere is unprofessional.I however like the fact that since the very first time I came in the owner knows my name.I like the fact that the other day. He called me up to let me know he had something I would be really interested in. I like the fact that the other day. I almost paid a extra 5 bucks for something that tho really good was not as good as what I was getting.The person who's pocket that 5 dollars would have gone in was the first person to let me know that.
    Ram Im not trying to be a jerk here but your review was such crap I had to post.I challenge you to find a place with better bud at the same price.

  • Report Do you like OG's, Kush, and potent medibles?

    Good lord...when something is listed as "Fire!" on the menu, you better be ready for a Cannabinoid-rich inferno that will leave you smoldering on the couch; medicated and pain free (haha, fire puns).

    Seriously though, anything listed as Fire is just that. I just had the 3 Kings OG and it was amazing. Skywalker, San Fernando and Alien are always great too. The kief is great too...sometimes I let nugs just "baste" in the kief before twisting them up.

    Not a wax guy, but I have tried several waxes here and good lord are they they bomb.

    And remember to only get your medibles here. I refuse to go elsewhere. They are the most potent, freshest, and tastiest around. I personally recommend the pecan squares or truffles for potency.

    Awesome staff. I've come here a few times just to hang out and talk. They'll work with you if you're tight on cash and they always have good donation specials.

    These guys truly are in it for the patients. They treat me like a dear friend and have never disappointed me. They have helped me a lot and I am sure they'd love to help you as well. I rarely ever go anywhere else unless I'm not in the Detroit area.

  • Report Tattoo head John checking back in.

    This place is still the best! Ken is always looking for ways to make you feel welcome. Where most places are polite Ken makes you feel like your chilling out at a friends house.
    I have had other places tell me oh this bud is killer and oh that's the bomb and some are and some not so much.However If Ken tells you something is pretty good believe him.If he tells you something is fire you might want to cancel your plans for a few days.
    Kens idea of good is most peoples idea of help me I seem to have knitted myself into my couch.
    His low strains are as strong as most places top strains and his top line is almost all hit and quit.
    Most places you go the tenders seem to be afraid to let you pick anything up. There like here ill hold the jar so you can check it out. Ken however takes the time to not only let you check stuff out but will be like hay if you like that one for 20 you really got to check out this one I got for 15.
    I was there the other day and the greenhouse og was on sale for 15 so i got one and this other guy came in and was buying this strain for 20 that looked really good so I asked Ken hay ill come up with 5 more bucks and ill get that instead. Ken tells me man you don't want to do that it would be a down grade.So rather then make another 5 bucks like most places would Ken took a 5 dollar loss to make sure I was getting the best.
    Once again like I have said before. I live 2 miles from a dispensary but I drive 30 mins to get my meds for a reason. Why eat McDonalds when you can get a steak for the same pricce if not cheaper!

  • Report Simply the best

    Been coming here since they opened. All the top shelf buds are primo and they will be honest with you about what you are getting. If you are getting a $5 gram then they will let you know not to expect to get extremely medicated by it. That being said, they do have some really great buds for discount donations. My favorites strain is the San Ferndando Valley OG, but pretty much all the OG's here are great.

    The medibles are by far the best in the state in both value and potency. I have been to way too many places who told me "dude, just eat half!" and nothing happened. Most people will be able to get 2-4 uses out of the medibles here.

    I do not medicate with wax very often, but the wax I have tried from here has been great. The kief is nice too.

    Great staff who have always been friendly and helpful. Pretty easy to find (right off the highway) and safe & secure. Yes, it is Detroit, but you are not going there at 3am. Do yourself a favor and check this place out.

  • Report this is tat head again.

    I know I posted one review already but I just got back and this place deserved another review.
    First when the owner tells you that something is strong or fire, it is in your best interest to believe him cus he has a tendency to understate things... Alot!
    I got a dime of demon og its a bit pricey but it is there top shelf and by pricey I mean for a poor guy like me. Got home and 2 hits later I was more then happy with the price but sad I wont be able to get it that much...
    The owner is super laid back and always willing to give you a deal on something. He offered me a dime of this one stuff for like 5 off just cus he wanted me to try it and it was not even on special looked and smelled awesome! got half way home and realized I forgot to get it..... Silver something.
    I live about 6 blocks from helping hands and I drive to A Detroit Alt so that should tell you something! That's not saying anything bad against Helping hands they are a awesome place to. Its just that the bud is so good at det alt its worth going out of the way for.
    Oh and the guy gives free pre rolls out that will give you a hernia.Rolled on what looks like very good hemp paper and as thick as a cigarette. I could sit in there and talk to these guys all day.The owner has forgot more about bud then most people will ever know.I know that you see a bunch of positive reviews on here no matter what the places are like but Im a asshole and it takes a lot for me to gush like this about anyplace.This is worth at lest one trip if your far away

  • Report just a guy with tats on his head

    Came in to the place and I must admit I was a bit set off by the building. It is gated and I wasn't fearing for my life or anything but relocating in the future might be a good idea.With that said this place is worth the trip. Sure there are better looking dispensaries but the bud was top notch.I spent 10 dollars on a gram of organic blue dream a strain that is not even there top shelf stuff and on top of it being heavy the guy gave me 2 free pre rolls of what they call mix salad.I am guessing its the weekly shake.I know what your thinking 2 pre rolls .... for being a new customer? that's kinda lame. pinier joints of shake for new people when other places give free dimes...You would be very wrong tho. to call this a joint is a understatement.rolled in what looks and tastes like high grade hemp paper the smoke was shocking for having been free and The size! Cigarette size.
    I would compare it to the top shelf stuff I paid 25 a gram for from helping hands .
    Getting back to the 10 of organic blue dream. Like I said above it was heavy first of all like by 1/2 a gram or more.
    Second very smooth and had a pleasant flowery perfumy taste. The high sneaks up on you but stays a very nice cheerful high without the help i have sat on the couch and I cant get up feeling.Very good strain for playing haky sack with some friends.The people were top notch and very polite taking a fair bit of time talking to me and answering questions about stuff he knew I was not going to be able to afford to buy this visit.on top of that is was near closing time to. I know that just about every place has polite people but here it didnt seem forced or fake. I would have loved to give this place 5 stars but the outside of the building along with the area..... Dont get me wrong the place its self make up for it. This is my new place to go. Just top notch all around.

  • Report Happy camper!!!!

    Let me start of with the fact that the guys here are the real deal. They know there sh**. Before i even chose anything i was going to donate for they gave me 2 free prerolls and a tube with some simpson oil in it. I had called the day prior and asked about it the guy had somehow had the tube come apart and the plunger was out so he gave it to me for free. He said it was a gram turns out to be like 5 grams or so HAPPY CAMPER i am. So on to the other things i donated for the Demon Og was as FIRE as it gets. Super Lemon Haze was very tasty with the SFVOGK kief on it. And after i was done with my donation he gave me 2 packs of hash candies for free also. EVERYTHING they had here was on point keep up the good work guys. just wish you where closer :(

  • Report good place, overall.

    I felt a little cramped with the small bud room, even though the fenced off parking lot kind of made up for it. The staff seemed a tad hostile until they checked my paperwork in, but I'm sure that just comes with being in a rough area. Other than that, the medicine was medical grade tier and I got a good deal on my donation for it. The chem dawg and ATF are both great choices, IMO. There are other places I'd rather go to because of the distance but if they keep having decent specials or a strain that I've wanted for a while I might have to come back more often

  • Report Found this 3 miles away! EDIT: AMAZING FLOWERS

    I've been to see these guys twice now and I'm pretty sold on it. It's in an old bank teller's building and is a little hard to find just because it's not right ON Grand River, but just behind some buildings that are. Once I got there and got settled, Ken took the time to show me everything they have and was very friendly. You could really tell how invested and passionate about his business he is. I've sampled four different flowers from here and they're all top quality. Can get a little pricey depending on what you get, but you pay for better quality I suppose. They could use maybe a few more menu choices (especially Sativa) of flower, but they offer some things that other places don't. Personally I'm not into medibles, but I was impressed at their selection. No complaints, really, especially since that place is only like three miles from me! Cheers, light it up! EDIT: I have to add after sampling a nice selection of their flowers, I am thoroughly impressed with the obvious care, knowledge and experience that goes into the growing. These buds are beautifully cured, tightly packed and have a tendency to blow my mind. EDIT: THank you for the wonderful Sativa choices :D

    I've been to many, many shops and dispensaries in Michigan. I've been to this place twice now.

    I like this place. It is in a good spot - you wouldn't ever imagine it was there, but it's right off a main road. It is small, but size doesn't count when it comes to medication dispensaries.

    The staff is quite friendly and they seem like they are in it for the patients, unlike some clubs. The staff is informative and is happy to show you anything you want.

    Now the product - the buds I saw all looked very nice and the suggested donations were fair. I picked two mid-tier strains and I am very satisfied with what I got for my donation. I will try some top shelf next time.

    The edibles were my favorite part. They are refrigerated (fresh...yum), and POTENT! Finally...a club with some good edibles for a very low donation. I would recommend eating 1/2 of one your first time unless you have a very high edible tolerance like myself.

    Overall, this is a place certainly worth checking out. I am sure I will be stopping by frequently.
