Maria was the best bud tender I’ve ever had. She was super knowledgeable, friendly and genuinely interested in helping. She inspired me to educate myself more on terpenes so I can be a more educated consumer. As far as the product, high quality! Beautiful, pungent buds that pack a punch. I already submitted my next online order.read more

Hands down the best dispensary in Cleveland! The staff is so friendly, and knowledgeable about their products. This is literally the only dispensary here I go to here. They’re products are always fresh and the staff can answer any questions if you aren’t sure about what would work best for your condition. The atmosphere is relaxed too and makes the experience very chill. I love this place and their staffread more

First time customer,I called ahead to see what I needed. No long wait time on phone. Headed in to fill out “first time client” paperwork which was quick and simple. The women in the back area were super helpful to me as someone who has never had medical MJ before.Overall, nice place with a good vibe.read more

Nice atmosphere, love the location in the heart of Cleveland. Employees are friendly but none quite as great as Brian— quick, efficient, and friendly. He makes sure to check my order, show it to me, and share a laugh. Love the deals here, especially 20% off 5 products. Always something good going and kind people. Online ordering is a nice feature but caregivers can have a hard time so plan to go with them on their first time.read more

I enjoy the professionalism of the employees of the botanist. They are hyper focused on delivering a friendly speedy service while ensuring all rules/laws are followed. I’m usually in and out in only a few minutes when I order ahead. Otherwise, the staff gives great recommendations and is willing to explain just about everything pertaining to their industry and service.Bryan (b-no good) helped me most recently and gave me a taste of his lyrical talents. All of the staff are great and I hope to get to talk with more of them!read more

Very Professional Shop in a growing area downtown!!I have other closer med shops near me but this place is my fav and worth the extra 10 min drive from Lakewood. When you start getting to know the people working there you will feel right at home!I usually work with Brian there and he is a solid worker and was able to do my transaction very quickly. (I ordered ahead online).I was in and out and back on my way. You really do get treated special there and I can’t wait to go back and reup!! -Andrewread more

When I got my card, I really had no idea what to expect and had very little knowledge about medical options and dosing. A friend of mine who also has had her card for a while came with me.The location is convenient, there is great security, the guys in the front checking you in are kind, cool, informative and professional. Class act.First of all the place is beautiful, soothing, and welcoming, taking away any intimidation from you upon entering. We were lucky to have been met with Marina, who spent tons of time with us, we may have been in there for over two hours together learning what was best for us for our conditions and the characteristic tendencies we have that particular medical cannabis can work well with and why. She gave us a thorough education in understanding the methodology, chemistry, and science of all of our options working with us both with care, a superior level of knowledge and professionalism of the therapeutics. I am hugely grateful to her, a huge fan and look forward to seeing her each visit. My friend learned more from Marina that afternoon than she had over the many months spent trying to figure it out on her own with little help from other places.I never feel rushed, questions always welcomed and answered and I find the staff very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Masks on, socially distanced, clean, great availability. I can’t imagine a need to go anywhere else.Thank you thank you!! You’re the best.read more

Not only is this the best dispensary in Cleveland but it’s one of the best ones I’ve ever been to in any state.Their menu is 100% on point, organized and very informative. The stock is always great too! Very large menu of choices, options and price points. They run weekly specials and have daily discounts depending on how much your spending. The more you spend, the more you save!The people that work here are awesome from Danny the manager to their pharmacist on duty and the friendly bud tenders. They will go above and beyond for you. They will take their time with you and not make you feel rushed. They will genuinely treat you like a patient.Thank you so much for always a great experience and customer service.Also don’t let the address of this place scare you off. It’s very easy to find and in a safe and secure area right outside of downtown with easy parking plus handicap parking in front of the door. It’s in an old industrial neighborhood and next to an Italian foods wholesale company. You will be safe to go alone.read more

Let me start by saying you can not go wrong if you choose The Botanist. You may be asking yourself where an I going as you drive there the first time but that soon fades as you enter the threshold into a very friendly and professional atmosphere. Couldn’t be happier with the selection of such a variety of forms for all your needs. I know I will be back again without a doubt.read more

The Botanist has some of the best deals out of any dispensary in the Cleveland area. They usually have one grower on sale each week. The staff here is accommodating and super knowledgeable of their products. Also, the look of the place inside is as cool as any dispo in the area, which adds to the great atmosphere created by the employees and customers. I’ll be back soon! Thanks.read more
17:43 08 Jan 21
Everyone is very cool, very knowledgeable, and very helpful. All medications are high quality. They have decent promos as well. If you want to see those, download the menu from the website. A separate link is there for you to order online as well so that the order is ready when you arrive.read more

They are constantly out of stock of the items on their menu as well as common strains. I got some orders home and the flower turned to dust (Not Fresh). I was suggested some strains for the giggles and headband effect which were from her own opinion. I looked them up and the facts made a fool of the assistant. Too pricey and they only gave me a partial discount on my Military Discount. GO TO BLOOM in Painesville instead.read more

Too bad this place is in Ohio, the prices are tad bit high and the 2.83gm 1/8ths c’mon now.

Hands down this is the best medicinal pharmacy in Cuyahoga County. Their selection is always of greater variety than the other pharmacies that I have checked out. It is the only one I go to. The employees are completely awesome and informative. Although I am bad at names, two that I remember are David and Danny- who are both very knowledgable. The other day I was stuck needing specific medical advice; and David’s insight ended up greatly impacting my over all health (anxiety, energy and sleep) -co-currently the past two days (positively). Everyone of them that have assisted me have put forth effort into explaining in depth the different cannabinoids and which ones’ are best for my health issues. I recommend this pharmacy to all clients who have financial issues as well. Their prices are very reasonable and if you get the card you know this ain’t cheap! lolread more

First time here today and wow, what a great place. Tucked away safely downtown, this is the best dispensary in Cleveland hands down. Everyone was super nice and professional. Everyone was wearing masks, they have hand sanitizer out, all protocols were being followed. I worry going anywhere these days since I’m at risk, but as soon as I stepped in the door I felt extremely comfortable. First time registration is a breeze. It’s beautiful inside. Everything is laid out to see. Brian Adams helped me out and he was super nice and give that man a raise. I look forward to coming back! Thank you guys!read more

Quiet, convenient location. Located in an industrial area in downtown, last exit before Dead Man’s curve. The staff is very personable and helpful. I haven’t encountered anyone here that put me off or wasn’t friendly and knowledgeable. Vince and Zach are great in the front and the guys in the back are awesome. My fave place by far and they always have something in stock that I need.read more

EDIT: Upping to FIVE STARS!Not only has Botanist worked to lower their prices, including the offering of various discounts, they’ve introduced a line of their own products. Also they are now consistently carrying the largest selection of products in Northeast Ohio!!Also…about COVID. The Botanist has been exceptional at providing a safe and comfortable experience in their dispensaries.Staff – Botanist staffs the best in Ohio, hands down. Enjoy your visit!!!Dispensary-wise I can say the Botanist is one of the top performers in Ohio. Below I will give a breakdown including why I couldn’t give it 5 stars.Pros: Great menu selection and general availability of product variety. Exceptionally large vape/concentrate selection. VERY friendly staff and efficient in managing patient flow. They have also been excellent during the Covid crisis implementing standards to ensure out safety including mandatory curbside pickup at locations where it is feasible.Cons: Price. For the most part Botanist is competitive but they are slightly to the higher side. Because I have to drive at least 30 minutes to any dispensary I regularly study menus and prices really can vary on identical items. Their concentrate prices are the most inflated.Parking: Due to the area being less than ideal for the location (it’s fine, just not great) it can be a little overwhelming to go in – although the curbside pickup has helped.So that’s why I can’t give 5 stars but I highly recommend Botanist!read more

Yes!!! This place made it so very easy to walk right in do all your checks order everything you need then you get taken back and someone greets you the moment you hit the door. You can ask a million questions cuz they have a million and one answers. I’ve been to other dispensaries I know how they all work but this one by far as top notch. Their prices, they have sales and their variety is so big of everything! Stuff I didn’t even know existed in Ohio! Really, I am more than thankful that they opened this place up. No one is hanging out on the outside because they’re building a spacious enough to accommodate. Thank the stars for Cleveland botanist location. My son can order his medicine online and I can go and pick it up Takes Me 2 seconds. Thank you for being so close to home. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the way all of your staff are and how accommodating everyone is its an experience in itself. You all are beautifulread more

When I called to place an order I was helped by Danny who was very knowledgeable on the products & was able to help me find exactly what I needed. I then was able to go and pick up from the parking lot without getting out of my car. They provide a very clean and professional environment. Highly recommend you check this location out if you haven’t already!read more

I chose this dispensary randomly as it was the closest to hone. I’m usually rewarded if I don’t second guess myself and that was true again in this case. The Botonist is a beautiful place with a very friendly staff. Professional, quick, and beautiful. The exterior of the building is nondescript in-line with the surrounding neighborhood. Once inside the external lobby is also nondescript but nice. Once inside, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. There is a nice selection with offerings that change daily.read more

I had a great experience at the botanist as a caregiver, the staff is extremely knowledgeable and very medical focused. The location is great, just outside the downtown area, this is a close as you can get to public square while still having a place to park right outside. The waiting room was pleasant and the bathrooms were clean. I was in and out in no time but not rushed at all, the staff made sure all my questions were answered, special thanks to Natalie.read more

Best dispensary in Northeast Ohio! Compare them to the others and you’ll find they have the shortest wait time, the best available products, 30% + thc flower for vaporization, and deals/discounts every month and sometimes every other week! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff too! 1 of only 2 dispensaries in Cleveland’s City limits as well.Highly recommended 👍🏽read more

The atmosphere and physical surroundings inside of the Botanist are beautiful and relaxing. Next the staff is very friendly and personable. They really know their stuff as far as strains, terpenes, and what is best for the patient. David was very helpful and informative when it came to finding the right strain for my illnesses. Awesome menu with so much to choose from. Will definitely go back. I would say it’s my new favorite dispensary in the Cleveland area.read more

The Botanist was great! They had a nice selection and the agent Brian was awesome at helping me out. As far as environment is concerned this place looks amazing too. So let’s see what the best things to have in a dispensary are: Selection, Customer Service, and possibly discounts. I have to say Botanist has all three. Unfortunately I do have one major issue….I live over a half hour away and can’t get out there much. If Botanist keeps its current attitude and options this will be a great place for years to come. I’ve been to a dispensary that doesn’t have the care for the patient, and the Botanist was a pleasant surprise after that.read more

I have been to all of the other dispensaries and here and the Wickliffe location are by far the best. Prices are decent and there is quite a bit in stock. Veterans get 25% off here. The facilities are very nice, the kind of place that you would want to buy weed from.read more

I was greeted in the lobby by friendly staff. I like that they have a Combat Veteran working there because he spoke my language. I was escorted into the back and I thought I was in a magical place. It was like walking in to a high end Jewelry store. Brian, my dispensing agent was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I had a very pleasurable experience.
