I have talked about dispensaries such as Curaleaf and Trulieve (well, the Trulieve delivery service) and I said there would be more. After I visit a dispensary for the first time, I want to share my experience with all of you. This could help give you an idea of what to expect if you haven’t been to this/any dispensary yet.
This time I got to see and meet with those at VidaCann. Fortunately, they have a clinic that is actually close enough to where I live that I could get there in a reasonable amount of time. That’s not to take away from other dispensaries, I wrote about Trulieve so long ago that they didn’t have dispensary nearby. Times have changed for dispensaries as have the number of locations.
VidaCann was much closer than I expected, which is always a pleasant surprise. Everyone I spoke to in there listened. The waiting room did not have much waiting at all, and the managers were very nice yet professional at the same time. Kind and patient, Isabella helped me out in regards to getting a better understanding of the medical marijuana they provided. I’m notoriously bad at all things numerical, so Isabella scored bonus points when she gave me back the extra $20 I accidentally threw in. Good Karma.
On the way out I spoke with management to strengthen our bond and to each get a better understanding of what the other does. Much like what I wrote about in The Community, at the end of the day the most important thing isn’t which medical marijuana company does better. The most important aspect of what we do is the people that we are helping. As long as patients are getting helped (and not ripped off), we all support each other in some way. Friendly competition, maybe, but from what I’ve gathered we’re all in this budding industry to help as many people as we can as best we can.
VidaCann scored positively with me, and I did the whole thing without a joke about how the name sounds like Vicodin! DAMN IT!!!
