Oakdale closed. Turlock also. Kiona now open in Merced.
If you support this dispensery you support the blatant theft from the venders that supply the medicine. Im out 8600.00 since October 2014. I personely know 2 other venders out 10,000.00. The 2 other locations that have closed are still owed 6 months or more back rent. Please read the other reviews from venders also in the same position as me.
The Dr. Is a fraud and scam artist, I was forced to put a lien on her foundation.
My experience was great here. I was able to take my time and ask questions. Everyone was helpful and I liked the pharmacy set up.
I am a first timer to the whole 215 thing, and my helper, who shall be called "Bradley Cooper," was AMAZING! The service was great, he was so helpful, and really guided me through what seemed like a complicated selection process with ease and grace! Definitely making a return trip!
DO NOT VEND AT THIS DISPENARY. Benn waiting over a year for payment. I've called over a hundred times to work it out and have heard 100 excuses. Now they have turned their phone off.
Update! Now Kiona's should only be a last resort
Thought I should update my last review. Beginning late last year, the quality of bud started declining. Then a few months back they closed to remodel. The remodel consisted of switching the lobby room, with the cubicle room, getting rid of the people I knew there, and jacking the price of everything up $10-$15 (Though I did get a free 'grinder card'!). The bud quality is better now, but my last visit was the first time they had a quality indica for less than $55 since the remodel. I only come here as a last resort now.
This place has no clue!!!! Try Dream Green delivery service :)
This place blows along with the place in Modesto on Plendale and McHenry. Meds, Service, prices suck. I was going to Bay because it was worth it for quality. Have no problem paying for the best when it is the best. Was to tired to go to Bay this weekend so for first time I tried a delivery service. I was a little nervous to have someone come to my home but a friend told me about Dream Green a new delivery service they found on THC finder and they were very impressed with. I am not kidding when I say they have the best quality/prices on Meds I have come across. They said it would be 45 mins and arrived in 35 with 2 strains I ordered Master and AK-47 a new patient gift and a display of all their meds I could smell and look at for my next delivery. The Master blew my mind.....and the AK was straight fire loved both. I won't be taking anymore trips to the bay. Dream Green has a decent menu to choose from and the quality of the meds are just as good if not better then the clubs in the bay and way better then anything you will find at this place. Plus their meds are cheaper and I save the gas money as well feels like I am saving a grip of cash. Will be using them from now on. Thought I would share the love hope everyone enjoys this place as much as I did. Seems like for a long time I have been feeling ripped off by these so called dispensaries. After Dream Green left my home I felt like I got more then my moneys worth. That was very nice for a change.
only good thing is that its open, a diamond in the rough. they do rip you off though i bought 3 1/8 for 35 then he rung me up for 140$ lol saying one of the 1/8 was top shelf 65$ but it said 35 on menu. hahahah bs but whatever man. Another issue is the bud, yes there some top shelf, but 75% of the buds smell the same....hmmmm just a little food for thought.
Beware Stolen Meds!!!!!!
This place is a total rip off. If you are a vendor beware this collective. Yes they may make an appointment with you and settle on your price, however it doesnt matter because they will never pay it. They will take your meds and sell them and refuse to reimburse you.I am out $2400 for some meds i dropped off in October. I was told to come in in two weeks to pick up the payment, but when i arrived i was told the money isnt ready. Since then i have been back several times, posted on other sites and have ran across several people in the same situation. I called Kionas on the 9th of december and was told the owner Lakisha Jenkins who lives in Tracy< told the employees do not release any payments to anyone and dont answer any questions about payments to anyone. These people will take your meds and sale them and keep all the money for theirselves. I personally know how hard and time consuming it is to produce your own meds that is why I will never purchase another gram of stolen medication from this place. If you have the time go up the hill to Blue Mountain Collective in calavaras! They are awesome, treat you right and I have vended with them before and they always take care of their patients
The quality of everything I've tried here has been good. BUT...don't buy their outdoor strains unless you're in need of lumber. The people and the atmosphere are great. Certainly if you're in the area, it's well worth the visit.
This place gives me a migraine!!!!!
A) NO PRIVACY - you sign in a public sheet. Anyone can read all the names, etc. The techs ask you a bunch of pointed questions about your treatment and tries to recommend items for your specific treatment. To my knowledge, the clerks are not medically trained to be making therapeutic suggestions. B) They are inaccurate with prices & totaling your orders: I had purchased a tincture and was told it was 15$, only to be told once I got to the counter that it was 20$, but that "they would give me a deal." Prior to this, I had made a large purchase and asked the clerk to triple check my order and total - so I didn't cheat them/vice versa. This person claims they did, only to catch me on my next visit and tell me that he "under charged me and that I owed 20$ from my last visit." THEY CALLED MY CELL PHONE to 'get ahold of me to tell me they undercharged me.' My latest visit, I had made sure my total was correct and counted my money, gave it to the bud tender (which they take out of view to the cash register) to be told that I was 9$ short. I paid the difference BOTH times they told me I was off...(Hey, I'm not perfect and it's possible I made a mistake...but this is the 3rd inconsistency and I don't think it's me.) If you go - get exact prices upfront, take a calculator, re-count your money and then watch your money once it leaves your hand !!! You don't get a receipt with your order, so it is your word against theirs. However, they DO write receipts.....2 receipts to be exact: one for your chart and the other for the till. Sometimes they document in your chart. Sometimes they don't. Which brings me to my next point C) The prices are expensive - and they seem to fluctuate depending on the person that services you. Totally jacked up!!!! Not to mention, they rarely have what is featured in their on-line menu. Oh, and they give you discount cards but you HAVE TO make sure that they offer you a card AND punch it when you make a purchase. That is one of the few perks of going to this place. D ) There ARE good people that work there, and I think they do have good products (if you don't mind paying for it)....However, there are some employees that lack professional boundaries. Being friendly is O.K., but constantly flirting is uncomfortable and icky. Calling customers' cell phones is a HUGE NO NO. Not sure about you, but I try to keep my therapy private as it's no one's business. I really don't NEED anyone calling my phone because they supposedly screwed up their calculations. E) I was able to call to place orders and to ask about their inventory (which they used to do) and suddenly they stopped - claiming to have never done so. You have to physically drive there and go in, to find out what they have in stock. And if they do not have what you want, they will be sure to tell you they have "product A" in the back but they can't release it for sale until a future date. F) My last gripe is that they measure/weigh/count $ OUT OF VIEW! You go to this little window and cannot see them weigh/measure/or count your money or meds. I understand they may have to keep money/meds put away so they don't get swiped, but I think if anyone is doing the swiping -it's not the customers! I have walked out before missing an item that I ordered & paid for. Honestly, I can't figure out why this place has so many issues......Oh and why do I continue to go here? It is close and convenient, except all of the crud I mentioned above. Despite a few nice people and the quality of the meds, I think this place stinks!!!
