    I clock from 3 minutes up to about 20 minutes in/out depending on the line.
    Starting at $11 for 1 gram of fine sappy nuggage. I'm a customer, not an
    employee.

  • I've been to a couple of other dispensaries and this one is by far the best I've seen so far. Keep up the good work MBAM!!!

    I absolutely love this place. They've got something different for me every time (edibles) and the quality is outstanding. As far as the staff goes - I've only ever encountered happy people working there. The security guys are wonderful, they are nice to talk to and are really friendly, the bud tenders are knowledgable about their products and have always given me great suggestions and advice. I've been to a couple of other dispensaries and this one is by far the best I've seen so far. Keep up the good work MBAM!!!

    I visited this establishment for the second time yesterday. The staff are friendly and very informative. 
    Having a collective in my backyard is very covient for me to obtain my medicine when needed.

    I want to thank the staff and security for the pleasant experience at the Monterey Bay Alternative Medicine.

  • The interior is clean and professional. I've taken my mother here more than once for her medicine and she really likes the edible brands that they carry. I also feel safer knowing that the police have a satellite site upstairs to monitor how things are run.

    This place is really great! I feel like this is the way dispensaries should be run. 

    Security is at the front to make sure you are safe getting to your car without someone hassling you, the front desk staff is very pleasant and they were able to check me in quickly even on my first visit, the staff in the interior was very knowledgeable about all the products and no question was treated as silly.

    The only complaint I have is the parking lot is kind of little. 

    I have recommended this place to all of the people I know who are patients.

  • The quality of the meds is amazing. For the price though and quality, it makes sense to me. I have seen a lot of "expensive" reviews, but in my mind it is completely worth it for what you get.

    I really love this place. What this place loses in "price" (little expensive), it makes up for in experience. The experience of this place, friendliness of the workers, knowledge they have, and professional manner, make this place completely worth it. I love having a store I can now go to at my convenience, at any time they are open. I don't have to wait around for anything. Although, sometimes delivery is nice. They said last time I went they are looking into getting delivery system going. Awesome! I love how professional and helpful they all are. The quality of the meds is amazing.

  • The staff is above par when it comes to costumer service, extremely polite and they take the time to talk to you as a person rather than a consumer. 5 for me.

    The thing that attracts me to this dispensary is the professionalism. From the security down to the staff and all positions. Very well kept, organized. It is a place where patients can come and feel like theyre in good hands. The staff is above par when it comes to costumer service, extremely polite and they take the time to talk to you as a person rather than a consumer. 5 for me.

  • This place is overall great. I used to only buy from dispensaries in Santa Cruz because Monterey only had delivery at the time. Being the first walk in dispensary in the county is a great thing.

    This place is overall great. I used to only buy from dispensaries in Santa Cruz because Monterey only had delivery at the time. Being the first walk in dispensary in the county is a great thing. I love how professional and informative the staff here is. The one thing I disliked about places in Santa Cruz was the staff made me feel nervous and like they didn't care. Whenever I walk into this place they always go above and beyond for customers. The prices are a bit more expensive but it's understandable for being the only walk in dispensary in the county.

  • An excellent place to shop!. Low key and professional service. Wide variety of products. A very large selection of Edibles are reasonably priced.

    Some of the budtenders are relatively new, but some others are very experienced and enjoy educating and sharing their knowledge about various strains. But all were friendly and helpful.

  • Great Bud; substantial range of products; Budtenders range from GREAT (knowledgeable and very good at figuring out what you're really looking for) to OK. Service and attitude are superb. Security guards are polite. I clock from 3 minutes up to about 20 minutes in/out depending on the line. 1 gram of fine bud (ULTIMATE) for $10 on demand? Not bad.

    Monterey Bay Alternative Medicine is hitting on all cylinders. The location is open and bright with ultra friendly staff and a top tier selection of medicine. As one of the first folks through the door I was blown away by the obvious attention to detail in terms of high end strains to cover a vast array of conditions. My wife selected some Moxie live resin and a Charlottes Web preroll, while I chose an 8th of High Druid saliva and an 8th of Master Blaster hybrid. The High Druid smells like private reserve Jilly Bean with pungent lemon-bay leaf-euctalyptus note.

    The concentrate, topical, and edible selections are coming together nicely...it will be nice to see more local offerings before too long. We recommend stopping by at least once to observe the effort taken to provide safe brink and mortar access for area patients!

    10/10 will return very soon.

  • I love this place! So happy that I no longer have to drive to Capitola or Santa Cruz to get my medicine. No more going 45 minutes or more out of my way with traffic to buy my medicine safely. The area is spacious and bright and friendly atmosphere.

The area is spacious and bright and friendly atmosphere. This place is awesome. The budtenders are super knowledgable and Pete was my and my boyfriends budtender. He was enthusiastic about showing us the many different strains of marijuana. I also picked up some edibles and was happy to see some edibles and tinctures and lotions there as well. I definitely recommend going here and I'll be coming back soon!!

    What a great dispensary. I was impressed the moment I walked in. The atmosphere is very soothing and it's exceptionally clean. The welcoming staff is very friendly. Once inside I was assisted by Jean Paul. He is extremely knowledgeable, a wonderful listener and guided me toward the correct medicine for my needs. Never once did I feel weird for asking questions - I never felt rushed. I knew I was in completely good hands. So very happy that not only is there finally a dispensary close by - I'm so pleased that it is THIS dispensary in particular. The people and the product are exceptional!

    I have been here about 10 times now and every time I am impressed with the service, friendliness and professionalism I experience! Always clean, plenty of parking, security guards outside are a great balance of cordial and helpful. I have a puppy that I can't leave home alone quite yet and the guard offered to hold him outside for me! I was relieved and grateful, walking in to the lobby there is a nice bubble machine that is fun to watch while you wait to go into the medicine room. (Sometimes there is a wait depending on what time of day you go, I usually avoid the mid to late afternoon rush) Once in the room the displays are the first thing I look at, very well lit you can see very clear what kind of medicine you want! I have never had a bad experience with any of the staff they are always quick to introduce themselves and help out the best they can based on their own opinions (which of course you can take or leave) they have never given me false information! I am grateful that they are in Del Rey oaks as I have recently seen on the news that Monterey is planning on banning cannabis clubs from the city. This place saves me a drive to Santa Cruz and most importantly the medicine is good quality. Thanks MBAM for keeping up the high standards that a medical dispensary should operate under.

    This is a Walk-In Dispensary, it is 18+, and they only take cash ATM inside. 
    I believe my bud tender was Ryan, great service very knowledgeable staff.

    Very clean and organized facility. I do suggest a secondary staff to assist the front desk. Otherwise keep up the good work, you're helping so many patients.

    The security guard was like St. Peter @ the gates of heaven, not as frisky though. Inside sat 2 angels; Daryl and Julia. They were very helpful, welcoming and informative. Being that l was a FTP, there was paperwork to fill out in the fabulously decorated lobby. Upon doing so, l was approached by Jeff with a smile and a handshake, like l had been absent @ the family reunion. 
    Opening the doors was literally like heaven, man! Pete and an awesome young lady ( of whoms name escapes me, unfortunately) were happy, outgoing and in good spirits, being that they closed in 20 minutes on this day. The selection was on fleek ( the kids use this word for "bad ass"). My funds were low but l was able to leave the bright lights with a gram of " The Ultimate". Pretty good smoke. Nice,chill buzz.

    When you first walk in, the impression is: Calm. Soothing. Professional. Is this an upscale boutique or a medical cannabis dispensary?

    It's actually a bit of both.

    First off, the staff is exemplary - attentive without making me feel like they were rushing me. Their flowers are top-notch. They were out of a lot of edibles, but seeing as this is their opening weekend, I wasn't surprised. Everyone I had contact with was very nice.

    We made a visit to this dispensary to research some alternative tx for our severely autistic adult son. We weren't sure what to expect since this was all new to us. Well, I must say that our experience here was VERY positive! Spoke with a gentleman, Nick, who was extremely informative. We appreciate how he took the time to answer all our questions and provide us with some helpful suggestions. The GM, Ryan, was wonderful as well in helping to make our visit very productive. The front security was professional and very helpful, as well as the front office staff. Very thankful we don't have to drive miles out of town for your awesome service!

  • Finally, we have a walk-in dispensary in Monterey county. The staff is friendly and very welcoming and the location of it is quite convenient. The meds are astonishing! I picked up three different strains and are we superb and great tasting.
