One of the greatest things about the modern medical cannabis era is how much time and money you can save compared to the old way of scoring weed. Remember texting your hookup, setting up a meet, waiting around, and paying $60 per eighth-ounce? No more. Blüm Oakland gets us equipped for the stressful week ahead without adding to the hassle. For one, it’s on West Grand Avenue — the beating left ventricle of the city. For two, it’s a city-licensed dispensary with a vast, expertly curated selection and knowledgeable staff. For three, it’s got reams of free parking on the street and in the parking lot in the back, as well as security guards watching the whole place. In and out in ten minutes, and we’re back to the grind. Thanks, Blüm!
