Nathalie was extremely helpful in breaking down the extensive menu and had great suggestions. Everything so far is... delicious! I haven’t been here since they made the switch and the store is set up nicely and customer service was top notch from the time I walked in until I left with my goodies. Other incentives and reward programs were also shared which makes me want to frequent this store more. Don’t be intimidated by the big menu or prices, they have some great quality products that other dispensaries don’t have!!read more

Amazing place. Very clean and nice throughout. Sales people are knowledgeable and helped me talk about my options. They... have oz’s too for around $200 I believe if I remember correctly. And $50 of first visit if you spend $150. So could get an oz for $150. Have not tested yet but looks great!read more

Wait times are incredibly short and the dispensary is always decorated to the nines. Staff is extremely knowledgeable... on the products and happy to take the time to help you find something that will fit your needs. My favorite bud is the Jungle Fruit (hybrid, 2nd photo); Even at 12% percent THC, it has powerful effects and a beautiful fruity smell!The photo on the left is the Mojito flower, a wonderful sativa.read more

The medical wax I purchased from Columbia Care shouldn’t even be allowed to be sold to patients. Nasty brown mids color... and tastes worst than something I extracted myself. Extremely unrefined I wouldn’t even feel safe inhaling this product. I can’t really speak on their flower as this experience completely turned me off from ever going back.read more

The facility was very clean, employees very helpful, and pretty good flower but the shatter I purchased was a mess. It... was immediately the consistency of wax and was nearly impossible to get off the parchment paper without ripping. It won't even go back to shatter unless its immediately out of the freezer, and still then it gets waxy so fast I can't get all of the medicine off. Had to throw half of it out, never had this issue at competitors.read more

Amazing customer service and clean facility. They offer great discount opportunities and discounts for Vets and... Students. The product is great for what you pay, shatter was amber colored and good consistency. Rosin smelled great, nice and chunky and not melted. Flower was mid tier but for the price you can not beat it. Columbia Care trumps Trulieve by a long shot when it comes to prices and customer service.read more

They go out of their way it seems to make you uncomfortable. They will make you remove your glasses, hat, and anything... else but then force you to wear a mask. They will then tell you how everything they do is the Law. Other Dispensaries do not lock the front door, make customers remove their eyeglasses, make customers remove their hats, force all people to wear a mask(no exceptions, even health reasons) When you ask any questions at all about any of these things, then you get BS delivered in a very unprofessional way and told it is the LAW or a state Statute or some other BS. Even though it is not the Law, and it can be proven that these Columbia policies are NOT Law. So this place has no problem making up things and even after being sick and in pain for years and finally getting some relief, I made to feel like I'm a criminal as soon as I walk in the door.read more

I went out of my way to try Columbia Care in Sarasota, Florida as I’ve read and heard good things about them. I was... put off when I first arrived because I had to touch/ring a metal door bell before entering, I guess this location hasn’t heard of the on going pandemic? I was instructed to give them my card and was then handed a clip board and pen (both of which were not cleaned prior to me using them and there was nothing to indicate that has ever happened) and told to fill out the information the same exact information is located on the medical marijuana card. Seemed a bit redundant, but nothing I could do. I was greeted at register 6 by Cynthia who was not very friendly and a bit abrasive to put it lightly. I asked her a few questions and was rudely interrupted when I didn’t realize I had to answer the “where did you find us?” question. She wasn’t very knowledgeable, but luckily there was a competent employee (nice guy) who was able to help. After I left, I received a call from a number I didn’t recognize which I answered and it was the receptionist from Columbia Care, I was called because she Wanted to inform me that “I left my card on accident”. I was a in traffic and already a few miles down the road, so I asked “would tomorrow be ok?” She replied “Ummm ok, I’ll keep it at the front desk”. That’s when I realized she didn’t hand me back my card nor did she even attempt to. I called back because she was weirdly adamant about it being my fault that I forgot the card and she said “I put it on the counter, you must not have seen it. We can mail it back to you if you’d like”. I told her to please do so, I won’t be coming back. The flower I got was also very low quality and nothing like the OG Kush and Chemdog I was accustomed to (I was a Red Card Holder in Colorado)I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.EDIT:Wayne,I can tell by the way you're addressing an unhappy customer that a lot of this stems from your inability to conduct yourself professionally. I can ASSURE you that the doorbell was NOT cleaned after I touched it and again it was not CLEANED AFTER the person who came in behind me. I'd be willing to bet whatever you'd like that it was NOT cleaned as frequently as you stated. if you actually were intelligent enough to do your due diligence all it would take is you reviewing your security camera footage to see that I am without a doubt 100% correct. I'm sorry if technology isn't something to comes easy to you and your generation I am sure you team attempted to pass the blame to me rather than own up to their inability to provide quality customer service, especially if you're the person setting an example for them to follow. I'm sure you clean things, but not after each use which is what I addressed in my review. For you to insult me and refer to my statement as asinine further solidifies the fact that the reason for my sub-par experience is because you yourself need more training on how to properly interact and engage your customers.Do you even know how to sort through your reviews because there are 4 other people who have left read more
