The best shop in Oregon! I enjoy the conversation every time I go in and they love their regulars! Best prices and the best products!!! The only place I am willing to trek to by bus or my feet's!

Excellent dispensary. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable about all of the options available to you and they always try to get you the most value. There is very limited parking but a bus stop is located only 100ft away. I'd recommend going during non peak hours. On a weeknight I was in and out in maybe 5 minutes, a weekend afternoon will take you 30.

Constant parking issues. Hard to get in & out during peak drive times. Guys at storage lot yell and are rude. No friendly smiles when we walk in anymore.  Not one female budtender in the year we've been going and quality has really fallen. Last straw was when we noticed pricing go up by $30 a quarter !!!! within just a cpl days of our last visit.  I asked about it, they shrugged and offered no explanation.  I was floored and haven't been back. There's no excuse for price gouging.

Been coming here since it opened for recreational customers. The bud tenders are pretty knowledgeable and very helpful. They also have ounce specials all week. The quality of weed here is good as well......

I thought it seemed a little strange that I only looked down at my phone to check in so I can claim points for discounts, before I knew it he was asking for the money and the product was already in the paper bag before I even saw or smelled the jar!  As soon as I got home I was excited to check out my new product and much to my surprise I now know why the bud-tender was so quick to get me out of the door... now I am used to seeing a couple little stems off the Bud however, not a fucking tree branch! At first I thought I was just being paranoid but looking back I should've checked before I paid. Lesson learned.

Love it. Close by, no frills, good product selection (not great) and really good pricing across the board. Mostly knowledgeable bud tenders and always been friendly to me.

Co-located with a storage place (not the only weed store/storage locker in Pdx- an interesting business combo, indeed), this isn't a fancy store - oh, no! This is a great ma and pa style place with some young Marijuana aficionados working the counter. Mellow vibe, no hype, no fancy decor. Within 45 minutes of closing you may encounter a wait to buy, but their specials for repeat clients are sweeet and I like the other patrons. Some of the funniest conversations I've participated in this year have been while waiting in the lobby with seriously high patrons wafting sublime witticisms whilst waiting to get more 'inspiration'. What those conversations were,  I can't recollect,  lol. Lately they're carrying flower below 20/21%, but bud size is decent and you can earn punches to get up to half off (up to $100 purchase). The tenders are all knowledgeable,  meaning they've really smoked, vaped, ingested, dabbed a vast majority of the product they sell. Overall,  my only complaint is the lack of higher end (PUN TOTALLY INTENTIONAL) stuff for those special times.

Disappointed in the direction this shops going. Went from being fairly reasonable on a couple of things to having nothing appropriately priced. The man in the store admitted to being taxed less than Portland store, however they continue to charge more for everything. I've been in the industry for awhile and to have someone try and belittle my knowledge of cannabis is quite frustrating. Will not be going back.

Best dispensary in the Portland metro area. By far. Budtenders are personable, knowledgeable, and the friendliest around. The shop is dope, pun intended - clean, well-stocked, great variety. Prices are unbeatable, daily discounts are amazing, and the selection is pleasantly varied. Would highly recommend to anyone from anywhere looking for cannabis for any reason. This place is legit. I will be an indefinite regular.

Truly uneducated staff. They can be friendly but many of them really have no idea that they're confidently spreading false information. When asking which farms listed were most in line with organic cultivation practices, I was told "well none of them have pesticides because you can't in Oregon." Which is the biggest piece of false information I've ever heard from a dispensary in my life. Also, I told the bud tender which strain I wanted, and he proceeded to tell me that there was another one that smelled similar that was higher THC and also cheaper and then asked me again if I was sure I wanted the one I originally chose. I don't like my cannabis expedience being guided by someone who doesn't even know that THC content is NOT NOT NOT the most important factor in which strain people choose and why. And I happen to choose a different strain because it actually smelled terpy and delicious. Seriously this place is a cheap crappy dispensary and I would only stop here again if I had no other options at the time. Which is highly unlikely. Also just a note, you might not want to keep your flower in such large jars where your employees shake them up and crush all of the nugs. Terpene integrity is very important to some of your more educated customers. Educate your staff.

Hands down my favorite dispensary in the area. Everyone there is very friendly and knowledgeable. There is just a very welcoming feel to the place. Great prices, tons of great strains that change often. Plus they have a loyalty program that is amazing.   Haven't gone anywhere else since the first time I went there. Highly (see what I did there) recommend.

I absolutely love coming here the prices are awesome. And they help you find the right herb if you need it. The customer service is impeccable.  Sometimes they have long lines but its worth the wait. #BudLife

Super helpful for a cannabis newbie and very patient! The discounts are excellent but it's the friendly faces that keeps us returning.

Clearly CDC isn't interested in having business when they closed 10 minutes early on 4/20 with 4 customers walking up to the door. That's absolutely pathetic and we won't be returning to this dispensary.

After going to most dispensaries in my near area of travel, (Gresham,Portland,Beaverton,Tigard) this is my favorite go to for flower! Amazing selection, updated menu all the time, specials, discounts, and a loyalty program that makes you wanna keep on coming back for that 50% discount. The quality is great! The staff Is very friendly & always welcoming! I recommend this place for anyone looking for a dispensary to call home!

WOW. This place used to be my favorite dispensary, so it's so sad to see how far they've fallen. I used to come here all the time since this was one of the only places to do an OLCC discount, but for some reason they just really didn't want to give it to me. This terrible excuse for a budtender tried to tell me that I can't show my license on my phone even though I've been doing that since they started the discount. Secondly, he was extremely condescending and wouldn't even show remorse for the inconvenience. You've literally seen me so many times dude. Don't come here if you want to be treated with respect.

My boyfriend was denied service during a pandemic because he had a hole in his ID (he lost his wallet) it's the law to be lenient with people right now THE DMV IS CLOSED. So of course he told them they are horrible people so I tried to go in over 2 weeks later and they DENIED ME SERVICE AND 86d ME this is discrimination I feel harassed these people are walking devils I have ptsd from being in the army and I have a medical card I will be talking to my lawyer and report them to the better business bureau I'll will do everything in my power to sue them. I didn't not one thing wrong not one word said the people there deserves the worse things in life to happen to them they are the reason covid is here. There shop is fucking DISGUSTING AND GRIMEY. Bad things are coming there way. If it's the last thing I do I'm this earth. I fucking hate that I even have to give 1 star. Devils.

Great selection of flower and very friendly people.   They have a very nice selection of cartridges, but don't always have a very good selection of the lower priced ones.If there was a complaint, it's that they need a bigger inventory of 1gr. cartridges for Mojave and Bezel, not e everyone cam afford the Select brand.They do have sales and the vendor day is nice if you go early enough to get a free battery with a cartridge purchase.

One of the most important features of the CDC is that they hired a great knowledgeable bud tender, Ms. Peyton, who advises me on pain management for my kidney failure, diabetes and heart disease. Here is how she has helped me:Any of you who know me may remember from previous conversations, that I would very much like to hire Ms. Peyton, due both to her professionalism and her charm. Her eloquence is equally refreshing as she often has wonderful recommendations for cannabis that would meet both my recreational and medicinal needs.  Because of her advice, my experience with cannabis as a pain management tool would have been impossible, without her.  The arthritis in my spine thanks her for that, especially.I have known Ms. Peyton in a professional capacity, as a customer for over one year now.  Despite her youth, she maintains a genuine professional decorum while still being a friendly & engaging salesperson, of such quality that I have not seen since my own childhood, (long before written history).While normally I am loathe to write letters of recommendation, or reviews of this type, any assistance that I could provide to her is time well spent. During my tenure as Executive Director of the American Medical Massage Association (AMMA), we took on a number of salespeople to help with the sale of books, videos and massage equipment in our for-profit department.  I deeply regret not having known her then.  Her ability to apply herself to sales & her strong product knowledge make her a great pleasure to do business with and a joy with whom to converse.  If more businesses had salespeople like Ms. Peyton, there would be a lot more millionaires amongst us.  Ms. Peyton volunteered excellent cannabis related suggestions a great deal of the time & was quick to offer solutions that had otherwise eluded me.  I am healthier and in less pain now, thanks to Ms. Peyton, her vast product knowledge, customer service skills & matters cognate are truly praiseworthy.Ms. Peyton has a great general fund of knowledge.  During the time she has been advising me about cannabis, she has conversed with me on such diverse topics as animal behavior, Norse mythology, history, photography, Art & why cats like humans.  Nothing insubstantial, both the sale and the conversation keep me coming back to CDC, and I live next door to three much closer cannabis stores.  In conclusion, Ms. Peyton's professionalism has made my cannabis experience, especially as concerns pain management, a much better one.  I have enjoyed learning from her and letting her heal my back! So, if you want  GREAT CANNABIS experience from an expert, Ms. Peyton of CDC can give you that!   I recommend that she be cloned so ALL cannabis shops can have at least one copy of her!  Two if they are smart. Thank you.  Now Go bring your money to Ms. Peyton and let her get you stoned.   Or let her tell you HOW to get stoned.  The most important thing for me is that she has re-awakened in me a sense of customer service long lost for decades in many American businesses.  She is kind and knowledgeable.  One could not ask for a better advisor or salesperson!   Thank you.

I loved this place. It was just down the road from my house, the staff was always friendly, the selection was good, and their prices were okay. Today, I bought a cartridge on their recommendation, only to discover about an hour later that it was defective. I returned with my receipt to exchange the cartridge and was told that "because of Covid" they could not exchange or refund me. I have been told repeatedly at multiple dispensaries to keep my receipt in the event of getting a defective cartridge to exchange them. As recently as last week, a dispensary in N. Portland reminded me when I purchased one.There is no logical reason why Covid should prevent them from exchanging a defective product. Your inability to get your money back on it should not be passed to your customers. My household have been regular customers for the last two years, but that ends today. I suggest if you want to support a local dispensary in the Tigard area, you patronize Juan and his crew at the Magic Castle. They know how to take care of their customers. Clearly, whoever is making policy decisions at the CDC dispensary, does not.

Obnoxious! I walked in wearing a mask, over my nose and mouth like they require i have zero issue with this policy. While I was being helped by the woman with the half shaved head she said something about how she's never seen a mask like mine before and started pressing me about what filter it has etc. It's a mask and furthermore I don't know. It's something my mom bought for me. So whatever not a big deal. Then she tells me my total and I go to the ATM to take cash out, she tells me "I put some freebies in your bag". I tipped like I always do every time I go there and leave. Then I get home and saw the "freebies" she was talking about was a dirty mask that she took upon herself to put in my bag passive aggressively because she didn't like my mask. Listen, If you had an issue with what I was wearing when I walked in just say that. I would have been happy to use a different mask. The fact that she had to be passive aggressive about it while she was packaging my weed and sneaking in a different mask is the reason you are losing my business.

I've been coming to this dispensary for a little over 3 years now. The budtenders are always really friendly, never pushy or rude. Top quality flower at the best prices in town, I drive a half hour to shop here for those reasons. I love how easy it is to order online too. Keep being awesome!

Absolutely the best dispensary I have gone to in Oregon! Isaac, Aren, and the entire staff were incredibly knowledgeable about all products and promotions, as well as being very friendly and helpful in any way possible to make your experience great. Also, the shop is very handicap accessible, which is key for me as I am disabled. Also staff were very conscious of my limitations and went out of their way to provide outstanding service. I happily give CDC Dispensary 5 stars and look forward to my next visit. Thanks again everyone!
