Re: “Doctors Orders

I gave Doctor's Orders a '5' because they have impressed me every time I have been in. Although I am not a member, I visit D.O. when my caregiver isn't open, for example on Sunday's.

The location is also good, and near me. It's not a big place, but it's nice inside and the atmosphere is pleasant. I am in the 'average' age range, as far as an MMJ patient goes, and I take my meds and my money very seriously. I'm also a very a picky and opinionated patient and consumer, as I should be. I decide where my money goes, and if I don't like a spot, I'll shout it out, especially if they have bad meds and even worse customer service.

I have consistently found Doctors Orders to be a very pleasant, patient focused, and affordable place to shop for my meds. Both the owner and manager are so nice. Mercede and Shannon, you make it worth it coming to shop there. Thank you so much for working with me and providing our community with what we need, good dispensary/caregivers, who do it for the patients!

If you get a chance stop by DO's- they don't have a 30 strains on the shelves, but what they do got is GOOD! And they ladies are sweet! ; )

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Trinity is unique, and Colorado Springs is lucky to have it. First off - go here for the beer. The food is good, yes, but the beer is really the entire reason to experience Trinity. (I think right now they have a Cucumber-Basil Saison on tap - if you aren't into anything more adventurous than a Bud Light, you probably aren't going to enjoy this brewery.)

For the people who rate Trinity poorly; I'm not sure what they expect out of a microbrewery. Trinity has been rated in the top 25 breweries in the world; again, for a community as small as the Springs is; we're lucky to have a place like this. I don't know anywhere else in the city where I can go get beers as wildly different as Trinity offers with appetizers ranging from thick, sliced bacon slices served with maple syrup to vegan fajitas (which are amazing; and I'm not vegan!) - anyway... five stars.

Re: “Kelly O'Brians Sports Bar & Grill

Kelly O'Brian's is a staple in the community... has been as long as I've lived in CS. Great lunch specials, live music, kareoke... friendly staff. Most of all, they have been consistant for years... low turn-over so you see the same smiling faces!

Re: “Eagle's Nest Wellness Center

AMAZING PEOPLE! I agree with the previous viewers -- caring providers who do not rush, do not push anything on clients and the atmosphere is warm, even homey! Lots of choices and the staff is always concerned about our welfare. Edibles are well made, accurate in the mg. of mmj, and DELICIOUS! Must have been a very disgruntled employee!! Thank you for everything! I hope that you keep the popcorn!! lol

Re: “Aspen Auto Clinic - Tutt Blvd.

My first experience with them my breaks where squeaking on a fairly new Nissan. We took the car to the service center at my dealership; they said it would be a $450 repair. We took it to aspen and they said it was just a little dust and they cleanned them for around $30. That was a year ago and my breaks are still great. When my old Dodge broke down today I knew who to call. I'm sure they saved me thousands today. They have always been up front about what I need to do and what I "should" do and why. The technician even took me back to the shop, showed me why my car died, what needed to be done and what he was doing. Bonus I had just left the gym and stood in the sun for an hour waiting for the tow truck. I was starved and dehydrated. They have a very nice waiting room filled with free snacks and refreshments. What I was sure was gonna turn into a call to the junk yard only cost me a total of $130. Big shout out and THANK YOU to the Aspen Auto team!

Re: “Thunder & Buttons II

Decided to stop and try the food here when we noticed the specials board while strolling through Old Colorado City - VERY glad we did! They had a lot more than just burgers and bar food. We had the Lettice Wraps as an appetizer and tried a couple of the daily specials - I had Chicken Marsala and the wife had the Sloppy Buffalo. Everything tasted great. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with very good service. Loved the vintage NFL helmets around the bar - will definitely be back for football season also!!

Re: “Altitude Organic Medicine

I had recently read a review in the CS Indy that talked about this dispensary and how they had to move due to the new MM laws in Colorado, but other than that, I had never heard of this place .. what a bad on me !!

I happen to be downtown at Southside Johnny's, and saw the dispensary across the street and decided to check them out, being the dispensary whore that I am. It was a few minutes before closing, so I knew I had to be quick.

Everything that the budtender pulled-out was AMAZING ! It all smelled great, it all looked wonderful, and everything was cured exceptionally well. Being under the gun with time, I decided on several 1gm J's of the meds he had in the jars, which would allow me to try a multitude of their product; and I would not be disappointed !! The med. that REALLY grabbed my attention was the Bubble Gum. I only smoked 3 hits and I was stoned and stupid in a blink of an eye, and over the course of the next hour - WOW !! Over the past few days I've tried all of their meds, and can only say that every one of them have been outstanding .. honestly !!

I rarely write reviews or give dispensaries kudos, but these guys have something special going on here, and just thought everyone should know about them. Keep up the great work guys !!

Re: “Medibis

I like this place for usually having better than average smoke at a better than average price . Staff and owner is friendly and professional with no head games or BS. And this fella really knows what he's talkin about with medical concerns.

smoke is at times ultra high magazine photo grade and still sold for $25 -$30 an 1/8. and a nice looking count as well.

I will grant Medibis at the Dog Track my personal and very very hard to earn recommendation.

Re: “Rocky Mountain Miracles

Can't seem to edit my last review, so please forgive the misspellings!

I'd like to add that if you would like to see the Photos of the Medicine I reviewed, you can 'Like' RMM on FB see what I posted ; )

Re: “The Canna Center

I'm giving these guys a '5' because I spun a $20 1/8 on 420! Yay! Really cool thing, the coupon DIDN'T expire yesterday like some other dispensaries that showed up for the 420 event. I think the wheel was a great idea and I was pretty happy to spin that deal!

I'm a little sad to see that it says "ANY A GRADE". I'm not sure exactly what that means, but just an FYI, I'm totally opposed to 'shelf-pricing' for MMJ. I'm jus sayin...

I will however bee redeeming my coupon before it expires! LOL

Thanks guys, can't wait to try your 'A MEDS' ; )

Re: “Maggie's Farm - S. Nevada

I love this place! Not only is the environment professional, clean, and convenient but the quality of the bud is outstanding. I had my doubts about outdoor grow, not whether or not it would be good, but whether it or not it would surpass the bud I have tried that has all been hydro. I can tell you without a doubt that the difference is phenomenal and I don't think I could smoke anything but MF's product.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, they really know their facts about their product. They present an organized and intelligent pitch - their staff is very well trained. They asked a lot of questions about my particular needs and I walked out with what turned out to be a great match for me.

The product is well trimmed and fragrant. Buds are dense. I really cannot think of any reason why someone would not want to try Maggie's Farm. Quality is consistent and prices are really great.

Go check it out for yourself - I doubt you will be disappointed.

Re: “Movement Arts Community Studio

Beautiful space for a venue, floor to ceiling glass that looks out over Cheyenne Mountain and the city lights. Wooden floors and great sound combined for a nice ambiance and did I mention that the folks who attended were absolutely spectacular. Diversity reigned and whether the poet was young, old, novice or expert, each was lovingly held, encouraged and supported in a way that was so amazing and felt so good, that I wanted channel this to our leaders as a model of co-existing and thriving!

Re: “Strawberry Fields Alternative Health & Wellness

this place is the 5 star 5 diamond of MMC shops, My husband and I both switched to this center over a year ago, just before their flood of awards, and they have been impeccable every time. Even on one occasion when we thought the meds were weak, Sean replaced them on the spot no questions asked. Everyone who I see in this busy little shop is on a first name basis and no matter how busy they get I am always made to feel acknowledged and appreciated, and my husband and I thank you dearly for that.
