Last week we decided to venture out to West Oakland to visit Magnolia Wellness. It was a little difficult to find, but after seeing a few people in Magnolia Wellness shirts, we confirmed we had found the spot. It is located in a business park, but around the back of the building.
Once inside we were greated and our credentials were checked. The waiting room was pretty busy and a steady stream of people were both leaving and entering. Growers were waiting to show their products and several other first-time patients filled out paperwork along with reguar customers flashing their IDs and walking right through, making the entry room a little chaotic.
We were shown into another waiting room, which was very chill with couches and magazines. Magnolia also features free classes and services of all kinds including growing, hair cutting, and massage. It's a first-come-first-serve basis on all classes and they are free of charge to all patients. Click here for the schedule.
When our budtender was ready for us, we couldn't wait to see what Magnolia had to offer. We were shown a bunch of different strains and oils and settled on Miyagi OG (1st time patient bonus gram), Maple Wreck (1st time patient bonus gram), Titan OG ($55/8th), Khalifa Kush ($25 bonus 8th), Platinum Oils OG Kush ($30/.5 gram) and Platinum Oils Blackberry ($60/g). She was extremely helpful and seemed to know everything about the strains and products we asked about. Fair prices and a great buying experience.
The Miyagi OG was the easiest smoke, suggested for mid-morning or late afternoon, and the effects aren't too dramatic.
The maple wreck lived up to its name and tasted sweat and thick. Enjoy after dinner!
The heaviest hitter we have smoked in a while. Get ready to blast off with this OG hybrid.
The "freebie" eighth also ended up being the office's favorite. Is it the name? Who knows, but this bud was a mellow high that creeped up on you.
Platinum Oils OG Kush
We discovered the Platinum Oils brand by chance and fell in love. It tastes so smooth and will blow your hair back. The OG Kush was a monster. Enjoy in moderation.
Platinum Oils Blackberry
The BB is the first thing gone whenever its around. It's the nicest tasting strongest oil we have smoked in a while. Smoke anytime, anywhere...
