They have consistently been extremely efficient at serving patients for the past year. Unlike the two other MMJ... dispensaries in crAkron, they are almost always very well staffed and prepared.I am revising a previous 1 star review from the past, they have shown great improvement.Notably, their pricing is more approachable than 2020-21.You should go.read more

Honestly disappointed with this place. I placed an online order for the products they advertised for on sale. It... doesn't show the discount. Tried to call to make sure they're open because its a long drive but it says to place online order & not taking phone calls. Contacted on social media too with no reply (until 8:30pm).. So I placed the online order. When I arrived security was cool as always. When I got to the back and called up for my order the price was off. The guy said it was "sauce" or "sugar" on sale and I chose "budder". I said I was wanting the "sauce" on sale and the guy was trying to get me to buy the "budder" for more money. I said I didn't want that so he said they'll call me back up... for not wanting an item!? So I had to wait longer for an item to be removed from my order. And never was I offered the product I wanted that they have in stock that I'm looking at on their menu. Honestly don't think I'll be going back there anymore.read more

The reason they got this reading is because their prices tend to be more expensive than the other dispensaries in... Akron. The quality of their products is good, and they have a wide selection. The parking is very limited as it is downtown. The staff is friendly and helpful.read more

ONE of the best dispensaries around here. Herbology is a JOKE compared to this place. The staff are so nice and... considerate, they have helped me immensely. Their recommendations are very helpful and assuring. I will never go anywhere else for my medical marijuana needs. The curbside pickup my favorite, it’s fast and convenient. The security staff are really friendly and nice. Definitely check this place out and give it a try if you go to a different dispensary!read more

I absolutely love this place EXCEPT that the employees are still wearing The Chains. It's unbelievable that management... is still falling for the wearing of The Mask. It's like no one has ever looked at the numbers or listen to the 100,000's of Drs, Epidemiologist's, Scientists that spoke up early on about the useless mask wearing & continue to speak out about The Mask. Read The Real Anthony Fauci, SEE what The Communist Disease Center (CDC)has done and is attempting to still do to The People. Virus will Virus & Viruses enter into the body MANY different ways and The Mask wearing HAS done much more harm than good. Science has proven for decades that seeing and giving smiles releases endorphins which brings about good health naturally, let the employees that want to wear them, wear them & let the rest breathe fresh air and give smiles to the customers. Looking forward to removing this comment when the employees are free to chooseread more

I think that it's a nice store and all of the employees are very efficient and good at their job. The customer bags... that they give you for your purchase and made out of paper and they are very low quality. They readily rip they don't last; I've had some break on me on my way to my vehicle. As I talk to text this review I'm holding a bag from another store that is higher quality thicker has some sort of wax coating on the paper and has lasted me 10 trips to different places or more. If the Botanist they could do one thing to enhance their customers experience,they would provide their customers with better paper bags that are thicker and that more appropriately used to package expensive purchases.TheBotanist also have signs that say all bags are subject to search, so that makes me nervous to bring anything in to carry out my own purchases. It's unfortunate that they're dispensing very low quality bags for their customer's purchases while they discourage patrons from bringing in outside bags.read more

Great shop. Must have medical card. Can apply online! Good price shop. But not like what u think. It's not a candy... shop. No glass gars with labels and strains u can see smell or try. Pretty much strictly online ordering or help at store placing an online order but will lengthen your visit to around 30 min. Online order average time 15 min for me.read more

Went in For the first time when they were busy and only waited maybe 15 min. Security is top notch as it is in downtown... Akron. Staff and security is super friendly, dude was playing A Tribe Called Quest at the front desk so they passed the vibe check. Went to see the bud tenders and the gentleman I worked with made a great recommendation. Overall experience was a delight and I will be back! Thanks!read more

I would rate this place a zero if possible. I bought a defective pod from the Akron location. Called and was given the... run around and a lot of missing information. 2 weeks later and I still do not have any issues resolved. I was told there is no corporate number to call by the manager. They seem very shady and I will definitely be reporting them to the Better Business Bureau. They took my money, sold me a defective product and will not refund or replace even after the pod's brand salesman was authorized to issue me a refund. The Botanist refused AFTER telling me to contact the brand myself. They have lost my business. There are 2 other dispensaries within a few miles and I will go to them even if the prices are higher.read more

My first time here went well. Some things worth mentioning (for the inexperienced like myself) are: The online menu... is updated daily but not if something sells out. So if you drive 40 minutes to get something you saw online it may not be in stock by mid or late afternoon. This happened to me so I suggest calling first to check stock even if the online menu doesn't say "sold out". Second, and somewhat amusing was my knife that hangs on the outside of my small backpack. It's been there for years and honestly I don't give it a second thought. I was politely asked if they could hold onto it until I left and agreed no problem. So if your the kind of guy who clips a pocket knife outside your pants you might want to tuck it away first. Third, the prices on the menu do not include tax like the "other" major local dispensary. I didn't know this so I thought I would be saving a few bucks but after tax the prices were about the same. Selection otherwise was great. Better than the "other" major dispensary. Staff was really polite and friendly. I'll go back.read more

Axaviar Burrows was the first person to help me at the Botanist in Akron when my 87 year old father started to need... Medical Marijuana for pain. He could tell I was nervous when I came in and told me it would be ok. He spent alot of time explaining the products to me and helping me get the right thing for my father. When I went on line today and noticed that they did not have the same products I had been ordering, I won't lie I kinda panicked! I remembered Axaviar had given me a business card, so I pulled it out and gave him a call. He answered right away but explained he was no longer with the Botanist, but he was so sweet and pulled up their menu of produces and helped me to find something that would be similar. He also took the time to explain about the different products and the levels of THC and CBD and what worked for what. I wish him the best of luck, but it says alot about the Botanist also that they had hired someone like Axaviar.read more

Both Tracy and Chris did an exceptional job of listening to my story. Chris helped to guide me in the right direction of what products to try, as well as products to avoid that may trigger/make symptoms worse.
