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

Better then the Botanist selling you money for defective products.read more

I'd give it a zero if possible. Bought a faulty pod. They said it was my battery, although it is currently working with a different pod. They told me to contact the company. I feel a store should stand by the products they sell. They did absolutely nothing to fix the problem, just pawned it off. I wont shop there again.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

The Botanist was the first of its kind to land in Akron Ohio. That said theyve gained a reputation that they have kept up thus far. That reputation is that it serves the best quality safest and fair priced medical grade cannabis in the city. The staff defines professionalism and their product speaks for itself. I would recommend The Botanist to any and everyone seeking their product for whatever their medical needs might be.read more

I go to this location on occasion. I work in the area but live in Canton. I only go here if I can't make it to Canton location before closing time. I really do hope they extend their hours at some point. Most of the associates here have been nice. The wait time is much longer at this location. It's always been extremely busy at the times I've been here.read more

"Just go somewhere else! This place is a complete joke these positive reviews must be from employees and employee family and friends. They mark up their prices 100%, are so uneducated and unprofessional. They don’t care about the patients only the money they make. The information given to patients who come in is mostly inaccurate due to their lack of knowledge and training. Don’t waste your time at this dump."read more

First time here. And I won't be returning. The atmosphere itself was bland and didn't make me feel comfortable, the people behind the counter were kind of snobby. I got that it was extremely busy day but anywhere else I've ever gone they're super nice and they're waiting rooms are just wonderfully comfortable.read more

1st time ever at this location. Very clean space, staff was mucho efficient & expeditious. Pleasant experience!

The staff is extremely friendly & knowledgeable/helpful. The dispensary itself is nice as well. However, their prices are considerably higher on the same product as other local dispensaries so that deters me from going there almost every time.read more

I stopped at both The Botanist and Bloom in Akron. The Botanist definitely had lower prices and I loved the more chill atmosphere. Everyone was super helpful and kind. I will definitely be back.read more

Great selection, but the exit from the building needs work, dumped out the back of the building by the dumpsters, just dosen't feel secure or safe to be leaving the building with such heavily guarded product. Would have rated it much higher if the exit just didn't seem shady.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

Great experience, fast, friendly, helpful staff. Joel was great in helping me get what I needed.

Terrible service. I am unable to wear a mask because of medical reasons and this place refused to let me in without one. I can't breathe with a mask on and they didn't care. Anyway Bloom medicinals is a much better place. The prices are cheaper too. Tax is included iniin the prices! I spent over $1,000 in this place last month and this is how they treat their customersread more

The Botanist Pharmacy is very clean. They have a good selection of products as the quality is exquisite. Always feel safe there, I think it may be more secure than Fort Knox. Veterans are welcome and will receive a 25% discount on everything.read more

I’ve never felt more compelled to leave a positive review. The Botanist staff helped me navigate an overwhelming new world.Tracy Dawson helped me initially, as well as Chris Meriweather. 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. I can not thank Chris enough for the time he took to help we wrap my head around everything. Everyone there was friendly, eager to help, providing a relaxed experience. I will definitely be back.read more

This dispensary is incredible. I'm an introvert, and hate talking to people. But I've gone there since opening and they feel like friends. I look forward to interacting with them! There have been times I've been a little short and staff have opened their wallets to help. I've paid it forward and I'm sure others are the same. It's just a caring and beautiful atmosphere, the only errand I look forward to doing. Staff are knowledgeable and passionate about helping people.read more

Going to the botanist is always a pleasant experience. The staff are friendly and patient. They are helpful in assisting me decide which product to purchase. I especially want to thank Axaviar for sharing his knowledge of the products. He was patient and very helpful. Always with a smile. I could’ve been getting on his nerves and never known. To all the staff, thank you for making me feel comfortable as a customer.read more
