Excellent dispensary. Customer service is top-notch, THC and/or CBD levels are among the highest in the area, they stock a wide variety of products, the environment is clean and inviting, and prices are reasonable.

This is my favorite dispensary in New Mexico. They have the most knowledge staff and friendly staff. Also the best product and variety.

This is my go-to pot shop for everything! Recently got a sav to help with my daughters concussion head aches, (free of charge!!) and it works beautifully! They all know my daughter and great her when she comes in! Recently I bought a nectar collector and torch, both work beautifully. The pre rolls are amazing! I get them every time! Also the butterscotch cookies are amazing!

I recently moved form California and wow- what a difference in dispensaries. The bud tenders here are upbeat, knowledgeable and give great advice. The prices are about 30-40% less than in California and that makes a huge difference in my medicine budget. I'll find it hard to go anyplace else given the openness, cleanliness, great staff and the fact it is not hidden away in some dark and far away place like some dispensaries in California. I am so glad I moved to NM and in fact I moved here because of safe access to medical marijuana. Kudos to the Verdes Foundation.

Today we had the opportunity to interact with Yani on the phone while getting direction from our doctor. She was so incredibly helpful and kind.  Very grateful for Verdes. And Yani

There was a very rude lady today when I came in. Won't be back for awhile. Time for natural Rx. They are always polite there.

Purchased the hemp drops. Upon my first check in, they informed me if any product did not satisfy, I could return the product for a refund. I bought the hemp drops which gave me a migraine. Two droppers, notified Verdes they did not work, asked for refund, they said the would refund only if unopened! How do you test something without opening it? They did not return my call. Misrepresentation, poor business skills.I will NEVER go to Verdes again or recommend them to anyone. Bad business choice for $12.00 product.

This my spot every person is extremely knowledgeable about medicine, I brought my mother here for the first time and they kept her comfortable with all the advice you could ever think of. Even when the place is slammed an you see every employee running around they still take the time to treat you like a person and I like that. If any one is wonder if they should visit Verdes the question you have to ask is why haven't you visited already? Get over there good prices and reward program

By far the best medicine in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho.   Flower and vape products are top shelf for mid-shelf prices.

The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about all of their strains and products! I can just mention what side effects I don't want and they find something right for me.the only thing I could gripe about is they're currently cash only... except there's an atm across the street.

Best Blue Dream I've had in Albuquerque.   All their buds are gorgeous and potent.  I had one batch with seeds, but other than that if you are a traditionalist like me, who knows the only and still best way to use weeed is smokinnng it; this is your dispensary!(For you SMOKERS this is a damn fine place.)They have edibles, too, but their chocolates are awful.  Stick with the sticky icky.

Excellent dispensary. They've gone out of their way for me. Have been providing excellent medicine to New Mexico for years now. I've been going to them for years. Should've written the review sooner but I've been going through a long healing journey, largely with the help of their medicine. I appreciate you all. Thank you

By far my favorite dispensary in town. The staff are extremely kind and informative. The atmosphere is clean and well kept, and has an area for anyone accompanying you to have a seat and relax. The menu is very extensive, with great products for treatment. 10/10 will be a recurring visitor

Out of most the dispensaries I have been too, this one is by far one of the best. Staff is always friendly, super helpful, knowledgeable, doesn't push you to buy things you don't need, knows their stuff on ways to consume and what products to use. Always doing good for the community by letting us know in their weekly emails. Highly recommend, have yet to have a negative experience. Wish they had more hours and locations but it's worth the drive.

Product is very good when it is in stock. Lack of selection and stock, mixed with poor sales or specials. Excellent staff and quick transactions are a plus! They have a decent rewards program too.

Verdes is a beautiful store.  It is open ( no guards or getting buzzed in).  However that is where the positive accolades stop.  The last three times I went in I could not get the products I use.  I use edibles.  The cookies disintegrate when I cut them, which wastes expensive product.  The Bhangbars are hard to cut which, again, wastes product.  Today beyond not having what I wanted my salesperson was rude and condescending.  There are good dispensaries all over Albuquerque.  I will never shop there again.  Customer service is everything!

I love this dispensary! It's definitely one of my favorites! The staff is so friendly and so helpful, and they have a great product and a great variety. They provide really good information on terpenes so that you can target your needs by specific strains and the terpenes they contain. I found that to be very helpful in my own Health Quest. I highly recommend the Verdes foundation for your medical cannabis needs.

In many ways this is the  best dispensary in New Mexico. The care, knowledge, good humor, and compassion of their staff is unsurpassed. Their flower and flower extracts are excellent. This is the dispensary that hosts the NM Medical Cannabis Conference which is an exceptional event if you are interested in the research, science, and medicine behind this miracle plant. Great service. Great medicine. Great environment and ambience. Great people.

The immediate atmosphere is so comforting. I look here before I look at any other place for service. Customer service, absolute top notch and above. Best place for really caring to anyone that walks through that door. I have nothing I can say negative. The waiting period not bad what so ever

I'm so glad this dispensary opened closer to me, since the drive Rio Rancho is really to far from Edgewood. When I went in, I found out my son Calvin, could come in and learn and see the way it works, instead of sitting in the car. Believe it or not, the ability to have a member of the family with you can make a difference in comfort level, especially when you first start on cannabis.The budtenders rock here! This is a busy location, but they never try to rush you, and have more than 1 or 2 during busy times. They are so knowledgeable and kind here. I was still fairly new to everything when I first went in, I explained what my symptoms were and they tried to help me find not just a strain, but also the best delivery system. They answer questions and are always personable and polite.They have past orders up, if you forget what the strain or product they you got 2 visits ago, they look and and get you all set up.If there is a new product, they show to you and explain not just how great it is, built if it works for you.They have a nurse there to help you to guide you as well make sure any questions you have are answered.The selection and variety of cannabis strains are extensive as well as the edibles and concentrates. Plus, if they will help you in finding a less expensive solution and make sure you are happy with your selection.The edibles are pretty tasty, and again, great selection!If you're looking to settle down your anxiety/pain not just in your brain and bones, but find a place to help learn about medical marijuana, start your journey at Verdes!Plus... the reward program is awesome and they often have double stamp days! Free stuff is always a good thing!

My absolute favorite dispensary in Albuquerque. Everyone is friendly, genuine, knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful. Most importantly they want to talk about the product and there's no awkwardness when you want to learn about something. No pretentiousness here. Their strains and products are natural and clean, the atmosphere is welcoming, and it just feels good to be there. There are weekly specials and sales and they are always coming up with new blends (omy goodness!! I LOVE their blends!!!) and special treats. 9 our of 10 visits I'm greeted by my name when I walk in and I always leave smiling. The Verdes Foundation feels like visiting friends that fill your love tank and your weed stash.

People are in this program for a variety of reasons. Having staff who does not recognize that they are dealing with sensitive medical conditions can dangerous to a patient's well being. This program helps people who have certain conditions and they should act accordingly. This is not a convienience store, this is a (pharmacy) and can help or harm. Think before you cause harm. You have no idea what the person in front of your counter deals with on a daily basis.

I was absolutely blown away by the level of good vibes and professionalism!Stephanie and Barbara were who I met right away and Stephanie did a great job explaining to me how their place is a step above so many other dispensaries. Great prices, weekly specials and my favorite ex- butcher is there too!! Will be back for sure!!

This has become my new favorite, go-to dispensary. It took me a couple of years to make it over, lol, but I'm sure glad I did. If you live out of the way from their locations, as I do, it's definitely worth the drive.The customer service has always been outstanding. The budtenders have never rushed me and have always patiently answered my questions and let me examine any products I'm interested in. They also have a great selection of accessories at a really good price.Their CBD dominant strains are out of this world and I can say with 100% confidence that this place has changed my life with their excellent, high quality medicine. They also do a lot of community outreach to support the ABQ area. I wish all dispensaries were this awesome!

There is one woman who works here who could easily win a 5 star rating for the entire dispensary. Unfortunately she's not always there. My last visit was a hard sell by an aggressive sales person. I can't bring myself to go back for now because of this and the inferior product purchased due to blind trust which is gone now.

Hard candies and peanut butter cookie edibles are delicious!! Flower is superb!! Been thinking of grabbing a Verdes T-shirt to get a discount on Saturdays. Really close.

I can't even believe I'm saying this. Verdes Foundation just stole $20 from me. Let me explain, I bought 4 g of flower. it came out to $44.13. I gave Renee $60 (3 twenties) which she put in a basket and took it inside.  I had just gone to the ATM prior to going there. I know exactly how much money that I gave her. She says that she handed the basket off to another employee who does the cashing out.They gave me a military discount which  took it down to $39.81. She brought me back my medicine and $0.19 which was in the bag. Glad I checked before I left. I told an employee, Aaron, that I had been short changed. Another employee named Celeste came out. She told me that I was wrong and I had only given them $40. This is false. I gave her $60. I guarantee that some drawer comes up $20 up when they close down shop this evening. Celeste says they counted down the drawer and looked at the video tapes. Oh, and you also  wasted my time, and stole my money. I deserve an apology from this place and they owe me $20. I will DEFINITELY tell all med card patients that I know about this experience. There are plenty of other stores to buy from. This $20 will end up costing them much more in the long run. Thanks for stealing from a disabled veteran on a fixed income. Thieves.

I've just started using medical marijuana and the Verdes Foundation came highly recommended.This is the only place I buy my products. The staff there are knowledgeable, patient, friendly, eager to help and they are very strict on the COVID-19 mask and 6-foot restrictions.Highly recommended.

It is best dispensary in albuquerque, great strains of Med maryj and kind knowledgeable staff. But don't forget, when you trace where the money goes, it is all political and contracts for dispensaries are all law enforcement and politicians. Atleast this isn't owned by judges kid, nepotism etc., Like the largest chains here. If you are going to participate in the system you might as well go to verdez, least crooked I can find and only place I recommend. I've been everywhere.

Great meds.  Extremely knowledgeable staff.  Extremly smart about covid safe practices, curbside delivery and that staff as mentioned before, is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to covid safe practices.  Hands down better than any dispensary I've been to in the past in California.Go here, engage with their staff on the phone before arriving if you have any questions.  Get your purchase made, and reap the rewards of good meds, the right meds, and take the power back from whatever your challenge is that requires you to have meds in the first place.Get your life back!  This is the place that will help!

My absolute favorite dispensary. Always waiting for a new drop weekly, and they have some quality flower and products. Good customer service, super friendly and knowledgeable. This is probably the only dispensary I really go to besides others for quick pre rolls. Sugar puffs are amazing.
