My first visit to one of Maggie's location. I'm really "STOKED" that I have an avenue to leave my "feedback" about the shop, the staff, and my experience. Overall...I'm EXTREMELY impressed. I'm closing in on 60 years old, an old hippie who grew up in Hawaii. "Organic" has been my creed for as long as I can remember, and that is what drew me to Maggie's Farm. Very impressive selection....extremely friendly and knowledgable staff. Good prices to boot. Just take pleasure in knowing you are providing for your needs "organic" products. This will be my one-stop-shopping from here on out!!
Tried to shop at Marisol Theraputics on Jan 1, 2014 (the BIG day) and have never encountered a worse company. Utterly incompetent and callous to their customers, both medical marijuana users and recreational users. I'm never going back. And when they go out of business it'll be a public service.
Got there at 12:50 pm on January 1, the first day retail pot was legal in Colorado. Marisol got their license to sell recreational pot well in advance so they should have been ready for the influx of customers. I got in an outdoor line I estimate to be about 120 feet long, with I'm guessing 200 people. Though I couldn't see how many people were lined up in the store. I waited over 4 miserable hours in the cold and wind in a line that barely moved, until I got close enough to the store to look in the window and see why the line barely moved.
Marisol only had one cash register active. It appeared that they only had one employee waiting on the one person at a time that could be accommodated. A second register at a separate counter went unused until the occasional medical marijuana customer came along (more on that later). There were many more Marisol employees but they were standing around looking bored and doing nothing. If they were at all concerned with the hundreds of people who had been waiting hours and hours in the cold it wasn't apparent. I could see thru the window that there were around 75 people packed into the store looking furious.
From that point I was 15 feet away from the front door. It would have taken another hour to progress to the front door, and--according to the store security guard and a man in front of me who gave up and left once he finally got into the store after 5 hours--another 2 to 3 hours until I could have bought something. Once I realized that the excessive wait was due to the store's incompetence and lack of planning I decided that I was unwilling to give this crummy company a penny of my money so I left. I was exhausted from the 4+ hour wait. Still I left not because of exhaustion or the additional wait, but because I decided to boycott Marisol.
But wait there's more. I just wanted to buy recreational pot. Marisol made their customers for medical marijuana wait outdoors in the same freezing eternal line. I was standing beside a cancer sufferer who had to keep getting out of line to puke. And after 4 hours a man about 15 feet in front of me, almost to the front door, complained to an employee and at that point was finally allowed to get out of line and go to the medical counter to get what he needed. He was clearly pissed, and for good reason.
Marisol's callousness was just appalling. They could have had signs up directing medical patients to go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have had employees come outside to announce that medical customers could go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have distributed flyers telling medical customers to go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have distributed flyers with their product selection so people could make their choices in line and decide what else to get if the store ran out of some products. They could have done countless things to be more efficient and less callous, but they didn't bother. Hell, some shops even had propane heaters so the people outdoors in line could be less miserable. Not Marisol. Nope. Screw the customers.
A lot of people around me left in disgust without ever getting to buy anything after we got a look into the store and realized that there was only one employee running one cash register. A lot more people vowed never to patronize Marisol again. I'm one of those people.
I've been a member here for 2 or 3 months now, and I have been a card holder since Feb '13, so I've been to several dozen dispensaries. Saskia, Mindy and the other staff are so pleasant and attentive, they make it a pleasure to go to the store. I have only shopped at the Powers location since it's only 2 miles from the house. I specifically logged on today to mention three things: Killshot, in-house-edibles, and their concentrates. I didn't realize it until I went back to the store to comment on how kick-ass the Killshot I got was, that it had recently won The Hemp Connosseur Magazine's "Connosseur's Choice" award November '13! I knew it was good, but not that good! My tolerance has been crazy high thanks to the potency of The Canna Center's meds, but this killshot bud felt like I smoked a fatass bowl of bubble hash. They just started making these little peanutbutter/choc balls, they say they are like 88 active mg's, but they felt more like the 200mg Budha bars I've been eating. I had one early morning around 7, then ate the second one around noon, and was giggly and euphoric ALL DAY. Lastly, their Super Lemon Haze (which I also found out won an award at that same event "Patient's Choice") is uber-potent. I use it in my "Higher Altitude" e-pen (I don't think they sell them there, but they probably should look into it) and it works like a champ for ultimate discreetness around my teens, or when it's too cold/windy to smoke outside in this Colorado weather. I love this place! I've watched their glass, t-shirt and other inventory double or triple over the past few months. If you haven't been in a while, you should def. go back.
I am sorry that you are not happy with Maggie's pricing at the Canon City location. We appreciate your comments. We are working to ensure that after the first of the year Jan 2014 that our pre tax price and specials are the same at all of our current and soon to be expanding locations. Our past discrepancy between stores in pricing and specials has been due to different tax jurisdictions in which we operate. Our goal is consistent pricing throughout all of our centers.
You also addressed some concerns over the USDA organic certification. Thank You.
Since marijuana is still not federally legal, there is no USDA ORGANIC certification... That's why we have become certified by Clean Green which mirrors the USDA standard for produce.
WHEN USDA does endorse organic marijuana, we will not have to change anything to become certified, as organic marijuana.
Its very important to us, so much so that we invite you to visit our website at maggiesfarmmarijuana.com to learn all about this exciting program to insure you of the quality of our product,
and hopefully of yours too as we hope you'll try Maggie's Farm again soon.
The ad you ran in the Indy (Dec.11-17), featured buy an 8th get one free,at all locations,so what's wrong with the Canon City location??won't honor your ad!!!Yep,your USDA certified alright,typical BS!!!
This place always has the best
Never lets me down
Will be back
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
MY WIFE IS AND HAS BEEN A MEMBER AT MARISOL FOR ALMOST A YEAR AND THINGS HAVE BEEN WELL TILL TODAY. WE HAVE BEEN TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE 4YR ANNIVERSARY SALE WITH MEMBER OZ AT $135. THIS DONT HAPPEN OFTEN SO MY WIFE DECIDED TO STOCK UP AND BUY WHAT SHE CAN DAILY AND PUT BACK SOME FOR NEXT DAY AS WE DIDNT ASK THEM TO DO IT, THEY OFFERED TO DO IT FOR US. TODAY WE WENT TO PICK UP OUR MEDICINE THAT WAS HELD FOR US AND WAS TOLD THAT THE MEDICINE WAS PLACED BACK ON THE SHELF AND WE COULD ONLY BUY A HALF OZ PER STRAIN. AGAIN MY WIFE IS A MEMBER AND HAS HER PLANT COUNT HANDED TO THEM FOR THEM TO TELL HER SHE IS LIMITED. WE THEN CALLED A FRIEND WHO TOLD US ABOUT THE STRAIN HE HAD PURCHASED THERE TODAY. HE SAID HE PURCHASED AN OZ OF ONE STRAIN. BUT YET MY WIFE IS LIMITED. MY FRIEND IS NOT EVEN A MEMBER AND HE WAS ABLE TO BUY AN OZ OF ONE STRAIN YET MY WIFE CANNOT AND SHE IS A MEMBER....SOMETHING WRONG HERE. I DONT THINK MY WIFE CAN ALL OF A SUDDEN TELL MARISOL THAT SHE DONT WANT THEM TO GROW ALL 6 OF HER PLANTS AT ONE TIME..MAYBE A FEW ONE WEEK AND A FEW ANOTHER. THATS WHAT THEY DID TO HER..PUT LIMITATION ON HER THAT WASNT PUT ON OTHERS. THATS BAD BUSINESS. IM A CAREGIVER, AND I KNOW A TON OF RED CARD HOLDERS WHO SHOP VARIOUS PLACES INCLUDING MARISOL. THE ONLY THING WE CAN DO ABOUT THIS IS TO HAVE MY WIFE'S CAREGIVERSHIP CHANGED OVER(WHICH WE ARE DOING ON MONDAY, FIRST THING) AND SPREAD THE WORD AS TO WHAT HAPPENED TO US AND OUR STORY WITH THIS COMPANY. I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EV1 KNOWS ON EVERY WEED SITE, ON EVERY SITE I CAN FIND A PLACE TO PUT A REVIEW OR TYPE OUR STORY. WE WANT EV1 TO KNOW THAT WE WAS TOLD THAT MIKE STETLER THE OWNER CAME IN AND SEEN OUR WEED PUT BACK AND SAID NO THIS IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN AND PUT ALL OF OUR PROMISED MEDICINE BACK ONTO THE SHELF AND DIDNT EVEN SAVE US AN OZ..A QUARTER...AN EIGHTH..OR A GRAM OR ANYTHING MY WIFE(THE MEMBER) HAD PLACED INTO HOLD THAT A EMPLOYEE/FAMILY MEMBER SAID COULD BE HELD BACK FOR US. MY WIFE AND I ALSO NOTICED THAT THE RAFFLE WASNT GOING TO WELL WITH ONLY LIKE 25 TICKETS IN THE RAFFLE JAR AT THE TIME OF DRAWING. MY WIFE AND I THOUGHT THERE WAS GOING TO BE A LOSE TAKEN BY MARISOL AS THEY HAD 300 BUCKS IN ITEMS IN A JAR AND ONLY 25 TICKETS SOLD. SO WE THOUGHT, WIN OR LOSE HOW ABOUT WE BUY 155 BUCKS WORTH WHICH IS 31 TICKETS AND SEE IF IT HELPS MARISOL BREAK EVEN A BIT AND GIVE US A LITTLE OVER A 50/50 CHANCE AT WINNING, SHE WON. MY WIFE HAS SPENT HUNDREDS IN THIS DISP OVER THE ENTIRE SALE, AND SHE AND I HAVE WORKED HARD TO GET THERE EARLY AND GET FIRST PICK OF MEDICINE JUST TO HAVE IT STRIPPED AWAY??? I THOUGHT THERE WAS A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE SITUATION. MY WIFE DIDNT SIGN OVER HER PLANTS TO BE TREATED WORSE THEN A NON=MEMBER, AND MARISOL...YOU CAN BET, ILL MAKE SURE TO TELL EV1.
Very best of the best. Quality meds every time I go
Sadly I can't fully agree with the previous reviews. The edibles are delicious but the prices for medicine are too high. 35$ and eighth out the door isn't very attracting. They need different shelves with different prices. No new patient specials and no members benefits worth signing a caregiver over. The joints are mediocre and not worth the money. I'd much rather drive down to the springs where I actually have a selection of something that works in my price range. They NEVER update their menus so I never get to see any strains they have or prices. I don't feel happy or comfortable going in there not knowing what I want and my total being way more then I expected... Free popcorn and drinks doesn't pull me in considering I come for the meds. Put out a 25$ shelf for those strapped on cash and I MIGHT consider coming back and writing a better review.
you got to try jp wellness best prices and bud.
This spot is truly the best and so close to my beloved home of colorado springs. This spot has amazing OGs and awsome other strains. But bottom line the staff know everything about there strains and the prices are affordable. I recommend this shop to all my fellow cs smokers. Coming straight out of the City of Colorado springs
Great place! Been going here for a while. Very clean, and the staff is really nice. Big selection of edibles, actually thinking about making them my caregiver to get the 10% off. They have a few other good benefits too like a free massage once a month or something and deals on herb. Non member prices are pretty cheap anyway, on weekends they do $40 quarters for all stains but a couple. The quality is awesome too. They have a bunch of good strains, I like the Kong kush the most it just reeks like real kush should and is super potent. They got a bunch of good tasting sativas too. Carnival, golden goat and juicy fruit are a few of the ones I like. I also tried some hash oil they had that tested at 70% THC!! So good! Definetly the best place on the west side
worst experience ever , rude , did not ever get credit for my punches like i was told i would even though they took the card from me. Weights seem off - bud seems tumbled.
Horrible service and poor quality Meds. I thought this place would be great from all the super reviews. Highly disappointed, the Meds were anything but quality. The people were stuck up and rude. If you have high expectations do not go here! You will only be wasting your time and money. They are way over priced for the dirt they try to sell. :(
Thanks but NO THANKS!
Horrible! Why even pay rent for a dispensary. They should slang dime bags on the corner!
There selection of editable is second to none you do have to worry about you meds being super wet; they take the time to produce some of the best quality meds around. There staff is always friendly with you. So stop bye and check out what they have.
I like going to Thrichome; they have hand down one of the latest selection of pot. They have an assortment of hashes, bubble, co2 extract, and of course keef. Editable selection s
Love this place!!!!!
The people here are AMAZING and the product is nothing but the best! This is the place to shop
Hey Colorado Springs wake up and visit the best, cleanest, and lowest prices ever in Colorado Spring dispensary. That's right I'm speaking of this little hidden away place Pikes Peak Alternative Wellness Center. I was driving down Tejon looking for a new dispensary that would at least have people who would smile and not get pushy like Broadmoore Wellness staff does,but that's another review.At Pikes Peak Alternative Health and Wellnes I was greeted by a lady with a smile and her name that was refreshing. After all the checking of i.d.s I was taken into the dispensary and it was explained to me that while the shelves may be low right now (harvest time) they would make sure my needs were met AND THEY WERE. I normally wouldn't eat eadibles however this place has the most delious browines I have ever eaten. The brownie want't dry nor did it have a overwhelming taste of hash in them. The price I paid was only $8.00 (low price for the size you get).I also purchased their homemade candies called Gems which I like for I can use them while I work. I have signed my red card to this lovely place and I am glad I did for now I am earning 5% off my next order and that is a great bonus since times and money are so tight. I did purchase a pre-roll and I can hardly wait until their harvest is in the pre-roll knocked me on my butt.
Glad I stopped here. Thanks one and all at Pikes Peak Health and Wellnes you have made my month. Sincerely: Hot Butter Rum 192.3
