  3. Michelle72

    Love this place..very informative … and the weed was great..

  4. PurpleGoddess313

    I went here about a week ago as a first time patient and I loved it. The staff was great, they didn’t rush me and they took the time out to explain the strains I was interested in. I will be a repeat customer 🙂

  5. Eatz72MMM

    This is a good role model for other dispensaries and have to give a shout out to Josh for being a fountain of knowledge while generously sharing his know how on quality products.

  6. 1kinggene

    I absolutely loved the first time coming here service really helped me out and didn’t have that much to spend but they gave me more than i thought i could get and a great goody bag. I recommend this place to anyone looking for great meds and great service im going back today.

  7. mollywooden

    Very helpful and nice prices

  8. bigsmoke313

    Friendly staff, lady helped me and 3 other customers and never missed a beat. Really good product, my only complaint is my free per-rolls were way to tight to smoke. Small problem, but doesn’t effect the shop at all!

  9. FrogChick79

  10. kingjames11

    awesome place

  12. Flower_enthusiast313

    I visited Area 51 today to get some edibles, they always have great deals on them so I come here to stock up. I was supposed to get 13 but only got 12. I didn’t notice until I had already left.. tried calling but got no answer.. just a heads up. Check your bag before you leave everyone! The service is always great here so I was a bit surprised.. but mistakes do happen. I’ll be back tho

    this place now totally sucks. i was a regular, two or three times a week and always spending into three digits. why i always felt i was being cheated and continued to come here, i don’t know. yet, i did and was happy to earn points and get a freebie joint. and so, i make a purchase of nearly 200 bucks and ask for my freebie jointaEUR|”only on monday” i was told. huh? you’re going to skimp on a shake freebie joint? it was an owner who refused me the joint and i thought “you know what? right down the road, right next door, right within a minute are other dispensaries, i really don’t need you.” haven’t been back. now, they’re closing due to “state regulations”aEUR|.uh huh. area 51, get your act together, get rid of totally stoned out bud tenders, don’t ignore people and treat your customers like crap.

  14. Jkele1985

    This is one of the best shops around …. they try to stay competitive on prices and product.

  24. theblaksmith

    The Alien outside on 8 Mile is what drew me in. The budtender sort of looks like a younger version of the main scientist in Independence Day. Real nice first time perk bag!

  25. Allied001

    I visited Area 51 purchased A Kali Larry og cartridge price included free ooze pen. When I Got home looked into the bag I only had cartridge and no ooze pen. I went back on November 5, 2017 since I’m in area to get ooze pen. Can’t use cartridge without pen. I ask budtender to place my cartridge into my bag along with my pen I’m pissed the FaEUR”aEUR”k off I get home open the bag no cartridge In the bag However I have ooze pen. No one has time for games I have spent to much money in there to be played like a fool dY~!

    Great place, medicine, and people. Haven’t had any problems here. Def check this place out, make it a regular. Got helped by MJ initially, which makes coming here a calming experience. She knows her stuff, so it’s great to feel like you have nothing at all to worry about.

    I worked to make sure they were open till 8 on the holiday. She confirmed they closed at 8. I left work and rushed to get there at 7:53. They already locked the doors. Wasted an hour of my day I could have been working. Now, I have to come back tomorrow. I will be going to a different dispensary tomorrow.

  64. chasew47

    Great deals on shake, bud selection could be better.

  65. SuperJum

    Went there before heading off to class, got helped out by a kind women named MJ. Her knowledge and recommendation was ideal for anyone who wanted to try new strains. Picked up some Jesus Sativa and some Tangerine Kush, I look forward for my next visit.

  73. nicole010

    An 8 mile hidden gem! It’s right by an overpass and would be easy to miss if you weren’t paying attention. Make sure you don’t miss it!

    One of the friendliest staff yet out of the 20+ dispensaries I’ve visited in the area. Check in process was very easy and fast. Very personable service, one of the guys wished me a happy belated birthday. I visited a few dispensaries on my birthday and they could care less.

    The backroom was very big, I can’t lie I didn’t check it out in much detail. I was so focused on the sale they had going on. Also staff very nice and knowledgeable not to forget honest.

    I was very happy, smiling walking out. That never happens lol. I mean most of the time I’m trying to get to my car as quick as possible. Lived in Detroit most of my life, you get something and get on. Way too many people looking to rob someone. Lol don’t touch me or my bud!

    Overall great dispensary, you can tell they care about their customers. They offer free stuff to patients, which is nice. I felt like a human and not just potential money. Will come back and visit!
