Melrose Herbal Pharmacy (MHP) is a brand new cannabis club
with a small selection of amazing flowerz! MHP is located in the alley behind
a few shops on Melrose Avenue between La Brea and Fairfax. This location was easy
to find and they have a small lot in the alley, as well as side streets that allow
for public parking. There is a door in this open half-garage-half-lot with a sign
above it that says "MHP." There are security cameras and you have to
get buzzed into this door. A set of stairs leads up to this loft-like waiting
room. The entrance to this place caught us off-guard. We expected another set
of doors or a small verification window at the top of the stairs. This place is
extraordinarily welcoming (minus the stairs, but we do not mind)!
The waiting room at MHP has bright, but soft, orange-yellow walls. This place
is very clean and has a nice arrangement of comfy leather couches, a coffee table,
and big plasma screen TV. There is also some random art on the walls. Atop the
stairs and to the right is a small table with a sign-in sheet and some flyers
and cards (weedconnection.com cards!!!). A white, gated door separates the waiting
room from the medication room and an office. One of the friendly staff members
will greet you as you sign in. They also offered us juice, water, or cookies...
The bright, yellow-walled medication room at Melrose Herbal Pharmacy was a little
smaller; however, it could have been the positioning of the display cases and
lighting that made it feel this way. A white-board with strains and prices hangs
on the wall to the left and the display cases are in front of you as you walk
in. They had 16 strains, a few pipes and bongs, and not much else... yet. Prices
range from $15-$30 a gram, and $45-$95 for an 8th. The first thing we saw was
$95/8th and $30/gram FACEOFF which made us immediately think this place was going
to be way overpriced. As we were not quick to jump to a conclusion, we checked
out each and every flower in the case. They had some beautiful nuggets here. The
compassionately priced Grand Daddy Purple and Trainwreck match the quality of
the best I have seen. The OG Kush and Blackberry made my mouth water because they
smelled and looked so good. No not really, but they were very very nice we like
::Borat voice:: and $20/$60. There was some Sour Diesel Hash, sodas from 215 Bottling
Co., and lollypop that we tried. It was one of those Chronic Candy suckers that
tasted like the cannabis stem, but probably was not medicated. Blazed a doobie
after eating it so we could not tell you for sure.
Melrose Herbal Pharmacy is a new, welcoming club, with some super dank flowerz.
The staff was friendly and on our way out there was actually one more surprise.
On the other side of the waiting room there was a door that leads you onto the
flat roof. There is a little view of the Hollywood Hills from here. By the way,
this place is located on the border of Hollywood and Los Angeles, in case you
are not familiar with Melrose. Anyways, they have plans to turn this place into
an outdoor patio chill spot for select VIPs, like you Weed Connection review readers!
All in all, we recommend supporting this new business; our only problem really
was the gritty smoking in the waiting room. They have not had many customers and
the weather was cold, but they said they would stop and that the next time I show
up it would smell like flowerz or flowers. Most importantly, they did indeed have
some chronic. We medicated with of the ridiculously priced FACEOFF, which was
bomb and tasted like sweet and sour og, and kinda made our faces and heads tingle,
but recommend the OG Kush and the Blackberry Kush. There are some specials; check
out our coupons page to find them! Give MHP a visit and we are sure you will find
something you like! We will definitely be returning when we flyer Melrose next
week. Tell them you read this review. Keep medicating.
