Medical marijuana dispensary review: Root Organic in Boulder
|Durban Poison from Root Organic.|
My other gripe is that grams are overpriced when compared to the per-gram price of an eighth -- the same as it was in 2010 with The Farm. I can understand the logic of not wanting to always weigh out grams for patients and offering an incentive to them for buying in bulk, but 3.5 grams is not bulk and the choice to pre-weigh everything has already been made. So the shop is forcing patients on a budget who want to take home some variety to pay more than $50 for an eighth's worth of herb.
I know that this was a policy at the Farm, and has been since we reviewed it nearly three years ago, but Root Organic should look into changing that. Plus, the MMC isn't really offering any price breaks for the middle-tier bud, which sells at $29 an eighth. Buying by the ounce will save you about $8 in total. The shop does offer member discounts, like an additional half-gram for every eighth-ounce purchased or 25 percent off hash, but you have to choose one deal or the other.

While Root Organic has a lot of positive things going for it -- notably the inviting, mature atmosphere, great edibles selection and an amazing knowledgeable staff -- the small things start to add up. It makes you wonder: Why re-visit, especially when other shops are selling better herb for roughly the same prices? I'll have to check out Boulder Wellness soon to see if making a left instead of a right would have been a better choice.
