I have frequented Metro Meds for the last years and I have to say even though they have changed hands, service is consistently good.
Location: My favorite location in town solely because they are directly next to a Discount Tire, who is known for challenging Marijuana legalization.
New Patient Specials: By far one of the best new patient programs in town buy one get one free up to a quarter. Also, they are now under new management so check to see, you may qualify a second time.
Deals: Metro Meds has daily deals featuring a Tuesday Choose-Day where you can select your own deal from $30 eighths, $65 quarters, $100 half oz, $199 oz, 20% off concentrates/cartridges or 25% off Edibles.
Knowledgeable Staff: Don and Amanda were my budtenders the last several times I have been in and I will say they both have always been pleasant, able to answer all of my questions, and have made excellent recommendations.
Ambiance: The inside is clean and well kept however, I am looking forward to the new renovations. I believe the building was a former daycare center and can use a facelift. One of my favorite things is that they have client appreciation events on site such as Sublime and Korova with knowledgeable staff to speak to their products.
Price: My understanding is that Metro Meds is currently a wholesaler and will have their own cultivation soon. For that reason, I am hoping they can come down in price a bit to be more competitive. However, their prices are already reasonable and on the lower end of the Phoenix scale.
Selection: Overall, there is a nice selection of at least 20 strains of flower, 2 large refrigerators full of edibles from Sublime and Kordova and a rack of gummies from Baked Bros alongside a shelf of their syrups etc. In addition, you can also find topicals from 420 Skin Care.
Quality of Product: From my first recommendation of Moose-n-Lobsta and Jilly Bean to the most recent free pre-roll of Tru Blue, the recommendations by staff have always been stellar. I have always been happy with the quality of the flower and edibles I have purchased here.
Displays: Overall the dispensary is orderly, clean, and well stocked. I think they could do more to showcase the flower. One of the edible cases was empty, which was in the process of being stocked.
Safety: There is a security guard on site at all times, which makes me feel more comfortable as I frequent dispensaries on my own a lot. I have never felt uncomfortable or overcrowded at this location.
PRO TIP: Don’t forget to ask you budtender for recommendations but be sure to let them know your experience level with the medication.
