AR MMJ CARD RATING & REVIEW ⭐⭐

The regrettable thing about the Source is that they are in the best possible location, but the quality of product, purchasing experience and timeliness are just not there.

Product Storage Score:⭐

Ideally, a dispensary will store their marijuana flower in a dimly lit, cool (not cold) environment, with minimal exposure to air.

Deli-style dispensaries in general will be unlikely to receive a high product storage score from AR MMJ Cards, because it’s the worst possible way to store your product, from a scientific standpoint.

As many MMJ users know, the terpenes in Medical marijuana are largely responsible for your high. However, terpenes are very delicate, and easily degraded by heat and light. Once MMJ flower has been prepared for use, the best thing for the longevity of the product at that point, is to seal it in an air-tight container and store it away from heat and light.

At The Source in Bentonville, their product is stored in large, clear glass jars on high shelves near the light. 

Every time the jar is opened for someone to smell, or for the attendant to measure out your bud, that cannabis flower is being oxidized. i.e. deteriorating, and becoming less effective at all of it’s functions. Every time that jar gets opened, and every minute it sits there next to the light, the CBN is increasing.

“CBN, No Beuno” says Dr. Daniel. “That’s the measure of the oxidative age of the flower. You could get mimosa from a place with good product storage, and mimosa from a place with deli-style storage, you could be getting two completely different experience because the CBN is so much higher in the deli-style product storage method.”

Deli-style storage is the fastest way to destroy the terpenes in your product.

Pricing Score :⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Source has excellent product prices in a range that serve everyone. Also, due to their ability to measure on demand, they can sell in small increments like portions of a gram. This can be important if you’ve only got a couple extra bucks and you don’t want to have to pull out another $20.

Wait & Staff Score :⭐⭐

The wait is a huge problem. This dispensary is in an excellent location, so they are often packed, and due to nothing being pre-measured, the line takes a very long time to progress.

The first time I visited was in February 2020 and I arrived about 10 minutes after they opened. There was one other person there, who went in before me, and I waited in the waiting area for 17 minutes before being allowed back. The young man I spoke to was polite, and as helpful as he could be, but didn’t know a lot about the bud.

My second visit was a few weeks later, and I made the mistake of going in the middle of the afternoon. The place was packed and I waited over an hour and a half to get in. I generally time how long the wait is the first few times, but I was there so long, I ended up talking on the phone after the first hour or so, and lost track of the time after that.

By the time I got in there, the staff had clearly had a long day, and seemed annoyed at seeing another person there to purchase product. I actually wanted to ask some questions about what they had and perhaps try something new, but not wanting to be a bother, I just picked something I knew and purchased a little less.

All in all, the buying experience is just sub par in comparison with the environments some of the other dispensaries have created.

REQUIRED: AR MMJ CERTIFICATION

Before purchasing cannabis from a medical marijuana dispensary, like This One, Arkansas patients must first qualify for a medical marijuana certification; AR MMJ Cards can provide qualified patients with the state-required recommendation to complete this process.
