    Very informative and patient. Great bud and decent prices

  2. Locelaro

    Just went in for the first time and was a complete spaz. My condition makes it difficult to function public due to sensory issues and extreme anxiety. But despite my awkward fumbling the staff were wonderfully pleasant and inviting and helped put me more at ease. I will definitely be coming back.

  3. tyris2007

    I love the Meds, the people and the location of this dispensary. Knowledge and information is readily available, and the entire staff is always pleased to help you make good selections for your ailments, hobbies and tastes. Would love to volunteer to help renovate / decorate the lobby. Lmk if you’re interested! I can design on a dime… bag. dY~++dY~Z

    Can you guys please get some Fruity Pebbles in there. Pplllllllllleeeeeaaaaassssseeeee.. thanks! Extremely wonderful excellent service, staff, and pricing. I probably should’ve start out by saying that. Lol. Fruity Pebbles please.

  11. skyfrank31

    I will NEVER go back! Not only were the tenders rude and seemed preoccupied, everything they sell is super overpriced. Yeah they test it so do a lot of the shops in Lansing. The shops in Lansing are well worth the drive!

  12. Barracuda1707

    Great Place! Bud-Tenders are always really nice and helpful! I love the reward system and that you can pre-order ahead to save on wait time.

  13. antgrasso

    Lake Effect always has amazing medicine and more importantly Lake Effect has amazing staff who truly love what they do Johnny M Johnny are Rebecca Luna mate Jeff and the others who I am missing great job guys you’re awesome

  15. Unibone

    I have a very pleasant experience at Lake Effect in Portage and Kalamazoo I was greeted with friendly service and as I am handicapped it was very easy for me to access and my budtender was very helpful when it came to saving money and getting the best deals thank you

  16. chasholtz423

    Lake Effect is a top notch establishment, Always has a fresh, fantastic and diverse selection and a superb staff. The michigan medical cannabis industry has a bright future with dispensaries this good. Highly recommended.

  17. Mrssmithjohnson92217

    I’m excited to try the suckersdY~S

  18. Edkz416

  21. Priscilla1001

    Super impressed with the bud tender we had! Rebecca was awesome. Very knowledgeable , accommodating, and funny. Will return not only because of the fantastic customer service but I was also happy with every product I bought.

  22. Shirley1953

    Thank you to Dave for such an amazing visit!

  23. ckon234

    Way too over priced compared to the rest of the state

  24. Picasso2

    First dispensary in portage! They just opened up in December of 2015. The staff was very friendly, the place was very clean and organized. I learned a lot. Their medicine ranges from $10 a gram to $20. They had more selection in the higher priced ones. Not the biggest selection, but I was happy with the meds I left with. They don’t have a sign up yet, so they’re kind of tricky to find. On Google maps, it says they’re “ruff cuts grooming” because that’s the business that was there before.

    Great place. would recommend it.

  25. RobinMensch

    Happy to see you’re open! Sorry we missed the Grand Opening. Like the new setup!!! Great seeing those familiar faces, and our wonderful friend Jessica at the desk. We missed you guys. The Grand Daddy Purple went fast! Need to get more in soon! So we went with the Dark Plasma. Very nice for the price.

  26. FlexndgetHigh7

    The people here are amazing and love interacting with everyone and always pleased when I leave

  27. BigGirl6988

    I was super impressed. Very friendly, patient and informative staff.

  28. Ariete416

    Quality, organized service. John B was my customer service agent and he did a good job of making me feel welcomed and informed.

  29. Tana2002

    Super friendly & good location.

  30. clambake

    Went to Lake Effect for the first time. What a great place, friendly atmosphere, and a clever name! I was helped by Johnny M and he was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and did a great job explaining the products and strains. I definitely found my new spot. Thanks Lake Effect!

  31. JerryGla22

    I love the 35$ eighths and the points program they do. They always have good flowers and they give me free grams for sending in friends. Pretty cool place.

  32. BleezyG

    What I liked about my visit was the service was great and my choices of product were of good variety. Overall it was a wonderful experience.

  33. Aven86

    First time I went here it was incredible. Friendliest staff I’ve ever encountered. The staff all went out of their way to make sure they were saying my name right since it is a unique and different name. I wish to learn all their names by the end of the year! The selections in cannabis here are top notch and they are always hosting deals! I highly recommend this place to all!

  34. elnikoboricua

    Great staff

  35. Nicsmith102116

    Of course wish it was closer to Battle Creek, but don’t mind the drive for what I know I’m getting!

  36. jguy19

    Always great friendly and never let down.

  37. BigBenR

    Been a customer for a few and always love the staff and quality of medicine.

  38. Betcha

    awesome folks

  39. Medijuana420

    Only bad thing I can say is they are a bit pricey. Other then that great place

  40. PmAngel

    I think that it’s a long way away, however worth the drive. Everyone was great on the phone (David) and sorry can’t remember the girl’s name for detailed directions and Joe? Happy atmosphere but parking sucks. Great service and Products! I will be back!

  41. JillianSparks

    Mark greeted me with a smile and always knows exactly the product i would like, or what i can benefit best from. Always greeted on a first name basis upon reaching the establishment. Impressive work guys.

  42. Med92

    Lake Effect is an awesome place with awesome employees. Joe helped me out he last time that I was in, and he is one of the kindest guys they have working. I always look forward to working with Joe.

  43. DS92588

    Great experience all the way around!

  44. zoovalley

    Great place friendly and knowledgeable staff! Love the educational aspect too. Only drawback is the menu options get slim quick, but understandable given the few dispensaries in the area.

  45. chainsmoker1

    I live 5 mins away and love this place. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I understand the scrutiny the meds go through before they shelf them, but it is still not so affordable for patients that are on a budget. I would love to see some recycle programs for old med containers and such. all in all if you have the money it’s the best dispensary in Michigan.

  46. iwantyogirl

    They have the best bud in the world and they show you with a world cup on display in holograms how can you not love that?!

  47. RockyRaccoon16

    After waiting nearly 4 years, we finally have a dispensary in the Kalamazoo/Portage area… and it’s wonderful! In fact, I would say Lake Effect is the preeminent medical dispensary in the whole of Southwest Michigan. While they limit their stock to bud, the wide variety of strains is unparalleled for the region (and they have a nifty iPad you can order from if that’s up your alley). All of the products are thoroughly tested and described on placards in great detail (THC content, cannabinoids, effects, etc.). The staff is friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and display genuine enthusiasm in their work. The best thing, however, is their prices… With grams ranging from $9-$20, they remain competitive on a statewide level in terms of price (i.e., no regional markups). I am delighted with this dispensary and hope they continue to operate unfettered by the City of Portage. They provide important, much needed care for patients in the area- who no longer have to drive over an hour away- and appear to be an upstanding member of the local business community.

  48. greenfairy23

    My first visit was very informative! They give you information on all the different types of CBD or cannabinoids and what ones help with different conditions. The bud tender, John B was very helpful with my selection. I will definitely be back!

  49. michiganSalamonman

    white lavender and blueberry pancakes was what I grabbed up in flower yesterday and both strains are fire. works well for me around the clock and also picked up a 100 mg gummie from sweetstone candies. Rasberry and I tell ya, Sweetstone is on point, have had them in the past and always consistent with there powerful punch of dosage. If you want quality tested meds along with a one stop shop, LAKE EFFECT is it. Their staff is honest and hardworking to provide the best in meds and experience. blessed to have them in our community. If I lived hours away I would still frequent LAKE EFFECT for medicine and THE SPOTT for all testing needs. Thank you again LAKE EFFECT AND STAFF!

  50. carmack3

    I used leafly to find this dispensary on the way to concert.. They told me they are not taking new patients because of a bust in Kalamazoo. I would have appreciated them putting this on their website instead of me going all the way to portage and have to go in to find out. Seriously it’s 2016 and your handling business like medical marijuana was just legalized.

  51. Indicalady4life68

    I like the selection and the people.

  52. roadhog1

    I like that they have a big menu on the wall in the lobby. Johnny M, and all the staff, are very knowledgeble and are considerate and actually take the time to help you. They are professional and really rock.

  53. MissGreenQueen420

    It was a great experience! The staff is very welcoming and I felt comfortable and informed about what I was buying. I worked with a guy named Dave and he was really helpful and nice! Can’t wait to go again.

  54. sdo420

    Updates review: went back on 420 for the GG#4 deal and free pre-roll. But I also picked up some Gorilla Cookies and some Purple Kush and wanted to leave another review. These two strains are fire. Comparable to some of the strains I’ve had in Colorado, California, and Arizona. I definitely recommend trying these two out.

  55. rpolkadot

    The staff at Lake Effect are friendly and knowledgable; the bud is top notch and they always have the latest concentrates! Pre-orders make it super quick and easy to run in after work.

  56. Noob_Noob

    My budtender was awesome and despite the crowded lobby I was in and out within 20 mins. Nice place with great quality product and their prerolls are amazing! Will be back!

  57. Sara phoenix

    Joey was my budtender on my last visit. Just like the rest of the staff, he was very friendly and knowledgeable. Even on a busy day, they keep everything moving and you never have to wait too long. If you know what you want before you get there, you can pre-order by calling, going online, or just write it down on a piece of paper when you get there. For me, it is worth the 45min drive. Great service!

  58. mopardan

    I was impressed with the freindly energetic staff, they new their buisness and it showed It was an all around enjoyable visit

  59. pkstauch

    the only place to go….imo
    staff is super friendly and very helpful every time.

  60. Stoneyjoanie

    The service and quality has gone down hill to the point of not even testing their product. Do not shop here anymore!

  61. SW33TP3A

    They are the best ever!!

  62. turbocivic

    Nice Selection and Location. Johnny M was great when I wasn’t sure what I wanted to go with. Highly recommended.

  63. ginnalynhughes

    Kind and knowledgeable staff and lots of great products. Couldn’t ask for more!

  64. Philskrill

  65. Hello321

    this place is amazing

  66. Anneteller

    Was there today and is I was very impressed. Very clean and nice. Very nice people and medication. I am from Lansing and will now be going there bi weekly for my medicine

  67. Cameris

    Really great service. Wonderful selection. Highly recommend!!

  68. MishkaSage

    The medicine is amazing! Everything is lab tested and they are very honest and knowledgeable here. The office space needs some work and my first time trying to find it was rather difficult, but the flavors they have to choose from was great. Just wish they had green crack in stock. Will be back soon! Thanks guys.

  69. MaxxTrell

    Very positive location, my budtender John was a cool guy told me how he just recently learned how to use chopsticks and I couldn’t tell because he uses them better than me.

  70. hanaanhayat

    Walking into Lake Effect is like walking into Paradise. You are met with the best products, at the best price, provided to you by the most caring people. I recommend Lake Effect for all Medical Marijuana Patients!

  71. 1Amaison

    A wee bit pricey but over all a great place

  72. jacustoms

    Very nice people great service and quality products and good prices with daily deals make this my go to place Hope to see more to come

  73. baileycharlesrote

    Very high quality. I wish the prices for an ounce were much lower.

  74. JypsySkye420

    I have been a loyal customer of lake effect for several months now and I have to say I am really offended lately at their disloyalty and shady intentions on their customers. I have been weighing my orders myself for the past few times I’ve done preorders compared to when I’m in the room placing my order and the past 3x in a row I’ve done preorders with certain people at your establishment you intentionally rip me off. An 8th that’s stating it’s 3.53g turns out to be 3 grams even and mostly stems once I broke it all off how much I got left Only 2 grams??? Then you have the prerolls they’d be great if you rolled like you used to but these are only half joints every time there limp and I have to pack them correctly it ends up being half the size i started with. What happened to the great customer service and honesty that we started with? This isn’t why I drive an hour to your location every week and honestly I’m starting to rethink that, your prices and product aren’t that great when your ripping off your clients on the goods! The majority of your clients like me need the medication you sell and aren’t just looking to get high so for you to scam people out of medication simply to get higher profits coming in is just plain wrong. Very disappointed dY~”

  75. LouisSchallhorn

    Good people great place

  76. MgoKUSH

    First one in Mich. I fond the isn’t a total rip off in price. Most anyway. but to a real smoker you’re way out of the park with high prices. they all are taking advantage of patience that have nowhere else to go. Bad karma coming for this fact.

  77. Rickon

    Awesome group of people that work at lake effect. It’s the only place that i go to get my medicine. Thank you guys. Rick R

  78. bmorris13

    Quality meds.

  79. DEBRE2

    I love this place!!! Workers are awesome!!! Lots to choose from!!!

  80. Mmmp87

    I have severe ptsd and anxiety these folks listen and are very nice. I always feel better after visiting. Thank you!

  81. mkroft85

    I absolutely LOVE this shop. Every time I walk in I’m welcomed by my first name and a smile. Everyone that works here is very knowledgeable about the product and seems to enjoy their job. I would recommend this despensory to anyone. They always have a range of med’s from the 9$/G to their top-shelf 20$/G “and the top-shelf is always amazing!”

  82. Joints423

    Ever time I have been here great service always freandly bud tenders and front door check in with a smile and conversation why you wait for your meds.

  83. pinchercreek

    Lake Effect is a diamond in the rough. The stafff are well versed in the medicinal aspects of all the sorted effects of the healing strains they supply.
    Excellent medicine locally produced. The Startonic and tincture they recommended will serve me well and help me with the chronic pain, anxiety, PTSD and nausea I experience. This is a truly medicinal place. If you are looking to recreate go to California on a holiday.
    Good luck Lake Effect.

  84. Mkline804

    Lots of choices and great prices!

  85. Mutch420

    I really liked how knowledgeable the staff was and how quickly they were able to get me exactly what I was looking for!

  86. WMUfanlife

    This has to be the best place within 100 miles. Bud is so fire. The girls that work there are hot too.

  87. Hurleyguy7855

    I’m from az and these ppl helped me out so much. I’m happy I can shop in Michigan! thx u

    Great setup and atmosphere. Nate was a great budtender. Would recommend.

  89. Slopes

    Great staff, very knowledgable and happy to answer questions. Great products, great range and selection, average prices. Had an issue with a cartridge and it was resolved very easily. Very friendly atmosphere! Would highly recommend.

  90. Vonn_Original

    Shining Armor is a great strand! I definitely recommend Indica lovers to try it.

  91. DJMammo

    Very professional. Friendly. Organized. Knowledgeable. Good variety.

  92. harielo_2018

  93. PANfugginTERA

  94. Ambernsoto

    Love the selection of meds, always have some good deals going

  95. Lennynic

    They CARE!

  96. Xenbean1121

    Enjoyed my first experience here. Workers are helpful and insightful, facility is clean and trusted

  97. btyler1612

    Great place

  98. Mannimal

    My consultant, Pieter Hostess, was extremely helpful and courteous. We both have arthritis so he had the knowledge and sympathy for the pain it brings with it. I’m a newer patient and have nothing but great things to say about the whole staff or experience! Thank you Lake Effect!!

  99. NativeAdvantage

    Lake Effect is the premier site for our area because it is the only one. Flowers are priced at just above reasonable, but the quality is high. Concentrates are criminally upcharged. Edibles are reasonable. Novelties are ridiculous. They make a big deal about testing but it’s just potency hype for recreational users.

    The place isn’t really intended for medical clients. Anyone who really needs the medicine is getting ripped off.

    Just spend 15 dollars driving to Lansing and back to get the same quality for half the price on literally any product you can imagine.

  100. ForeverAdrift

    The selection is the best in the area, the budtender was knowledgeable and helpful. The atmosphere is less rushed, they are in the groove now and are only going to get better.

  101. Tasz13

    great service!!

  102. amyknapp

    I love going to Lake Effect! The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The quality of the product is excellent!

  103. the_tokin_loli

    Always an amazing time there, it’s cool to see some new bud-tenders. I got served by Pieter, I have to say for being new he was so sweet and was a very good listener to what I was looking for. When I mentioned micro dosing he was very knowledgeable and we talked over things I’ve tried that he also recognized! Always a 10/10

  104. sean420rantz

    awesome people and great flowers my consultant logan was the best.

  105. BCBuds420

    Friendly knowledgeable staff, good one-on-one interaction, solid selection

  106. jcjc2004

    I think I was liking before they sold me some swag, some of the flowers they have are terribly dry and they short me almost everytime I go in there. I’ve been several times and not once felt welcome when I went in there, they need cheaper selections for the quality they have.

  107. Slothman.420

    The people here are great, easy to talk to and very helpful with any questions you may have to the best of there knowledge. very good quality bud and a decent variety to choose from. had like 20 different strains the day i went and i know they only been open for couple months now an I’m very very impressed.

  108. mdehorn3

    Great bud and knowledgeable staff!

  109. Keekee1423

    The prices are good the employees are friendly and they have good daily deals.

  110. StickyOberon

    This was my first time here and will be back again. My budtender was Luna. She did a fantastic job helping me find exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend Lake Effect because the staff and quality of products are like no other.

  111. edtracy

    only dispensary in Michigan that gets $20 a gram when you go to Lansing get the same stuff for 90 bucks an ounce play some big joke rip offu

  112. KEz89

    Enjoyable! Staff is chill AF

  113. ramvorg

    Sometimes they get super busy. But for the most part, their meds and costumer service is spot on.

  114. metalfan420

    Super nice people, very knowledgeable. Great selection will be coming back a lot!

  115. PositivEnergy101

    No on Tehition Treat it was mild for my taste.

  116. Spirited69guy.

    I like that the meds are the best around and the staff are always friendly and very helpful. Would recommend this place for sure.

  117. mars01

    Great Place!! Bud tenders take their time with each individual patient. Excellent Staff!!

  118. erikpatino

    First time here and it was great!. Johny was knowledgeable and helpful!

    Wonderful place. Great service. Will go here all the time

  121. kichigai

    Professional and polite in all aspects. Anyone can go here and feel comfortable. Great selection of quality, tested product.
    I chose the least expensive selection and am very pleased. I used to manage a dispensary. Visited at least a hundred in Michigan.
    The bud tender was very nice and informative. From the moment I called ahead, beyond purchase and walking out the door it was relaxing. Thank You.

  122. Th3D4rKsT0N3R420

    Absolutely love this place and the staff amazing selection of bud

  123. alatchaw

    I loved the friendly staff. John Moran was my budtender. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Overall excellent experience.

    Great place for quality meds. Budtenders are friendly and in knowledgeable. All products tested

  127. TomLewis71

    Quality products. Great selection. Excellent service. I’ve been there twice and I will keep going back.

  128. Collins4734

    Awesome selection, good pricing, and helpful friendly staff.

  129. Hysteria88

    I really enjoyed the mix professionalism and friendliness. They budtenders are very knowledgeable about the products and effects. They lab test all their flowers for spidermites/mold etc. and that really impresses me. I will be back in the future for my medication needs.

  130. Nowhammies9

    Your hospitality goes unmatched. Traveled across the state and you guys were my only option and I felt like I had been coming here for years. I didn’t catch the lady’s name who welcomed me at the desk but she was amazing and Johnny and the back was like the friend I’ve always had. Keep up the excellent work

  131. The_BigKahuna

    This isn’t my first time visiting Lake Effect, and it certainly won’t be my last. Every time I go, I always walk away with a smile on my face. The store atmosphere is chill and informative. The quality of medication is superb. And the employees try their best to remember you. All in all, a great location for all your needs. My consultant today was Mark, and it could not have gone smoother. Funny guy.

  132. msloc19

    Being the only dispensary in the Kalamazoo area, I love it! Being able to get good quality bud with a friendly staff is awesome. The staff is super friendly and always welcoming. They strike up conversations with you and always remember you when you come in again.

    My only complaint is they never have pre-rolls consistently, only on some days, but there’s never a pattern to it.

  133. KenD52

    Friendly and knowledgeable staff. I will return and recommend to others. I didn’t feel rushed or unwelcome at all.

  134. erczy

    Very helpful and friendly staff! I’ve been to my fair share of dispensaries and this one is for sure my favorite. Always suggest good strains and they’re sure to make you feel welcome when you come in. Super knowledgeable about all of their strains and any missing strains are easily replaced with something in shop.

  135. spartyparty1

    Free birthday gram boom! This place rocks

  136. Tyshaun414

    Been going here for a couple of months now and they only get better and better! Love the fact that they have edibles and concentrates now. Not to mention the flower that they carry..extreme cream and blueberry pancakes are by far the best I’ve had some far but they have so many to choose from. Would highly
    recommend stopping in if you’ve never been in.

  137. Kgrill74

    Very high quality product and service!

  138. chasonjohn

    Great visit on 6-22 with great services thanks Jeff from lake effect

  154. ShesADelicateFlower

    Joe was extremely helpful- explained a lot when we asked questions.

  155. Highbrarian

    Wide variety, detailed lab info, super sticky buds, great customer service.

    Prices are fairly standard for top-shelf flower, topping out at $20/g; lots of economy options and specials, too.

    They take plastic, as well, which is convenient.

    Will return.

  156. Dlb080307

    Had to drive a distance to go and drove past it at first but was so worth it! Great people and great medicine! Very professional!

  157. gussy94

    I really like the staff, they’re really friendly, and knowledgeable for the most part. If they don’t know the answer they will connect you with someone who does. They offer a good product for a decent price, however the stock can be iffy sometimes. Their cones are good, but they’re really loose. They could use a little more herb, and be packed down a little better. Other than that it’s a great place, and I’ll be back for sure.

  158. hairypickle40

    nice, place

  160. Cruz_Sadie

    I would recommend visiting this place if you are in the area. Prices aren’t bad and the staff is very friendly. They helped me out on my first time coming in and gave me the run down of everything they had. 10/10 would shop again.

  161. jackpepper

    well…they did it again! came home and was more happy then I thought I would be with my meds. Such a friendly and well spoken staff that has never disapointed this repeat client. Can’t wait to see what you guys have for me the next time! Lake effect has the best overall quailty in all they do.You only wish you could get anywhere else. Keep up the great work guys!

  206. Aimeers

    Had a great experience! Everyone is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable. I’m going back again and definately recommending my friend to this location. It’s bigger than where we usually go and about the same distance with a lot more choices.

  207. TheMadDabber23

    First time in a dispensary the lady at the front desk and the guy behind the counter that was helping me find medicine was very helpful! I appreciated the fast service!

  208. Sportyspice22

    Incredible! Best meds ever. Staff could use some work. The inside of this little hideaway is so beautiful I will be back soon.

  209. jwalls19

    I got the extreme cream, sunshine4, banana breath, and strawberry headband. none of these flowers disappoint.
    Also grabbed a clear lemon cartridge. The cartridge is exactly what you’d expect but the batteries they sell are trash.

  210. cvclvlsvc

    Great Location and Selection.

  211. guanjoe

    I live within a mile of this place and it is still way cheaper to travel to Lansing for my buds. Staff are all really nice but Lake effect is way too expensive. If they could compete with Lansing dispensaries on price I would love to give them my business but I live on social security disability and can’t afford black market prices.

  212. amunoz94

    I’ve been to this place a couple of times and each time I go the staff is very helpful and overall the vibe is great!!

  213. Deeznix

    Awesome place to have in the community. This was my first dispensary experience and I have been blown away! These guys are on it. Customer for life!

  217. alpinechocolate

    Helpful and polite staff. Good quality medicine just a little pricey. Would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

  218. TreG123

    could use a bit more advrtisments on the outside and a little bigger room to view the medication the guy and (beginner) girl were very respectful and they were also talented and focused on what meds suit u best I’d highly recommend LAKE EFFECT dY’dY”a~o
    A little pricey but u get what u pay 4
    Definitely good quality!!!

  228. Browning43

    A little bit crowded atmosphere at first but the front desk was very helpful and calming. Once inside, it was a very professional set-up with expert staff who knew the product well and answered all my questions precisely. Will be looking forward to returning.

  229. Mr_Ritz

    Dammit you guys, I asked for Indica and you sent me home with a Hybrid.
    Could you please also turn the music down? It’s not a good environment for people with anxiety.

  230. Jeniifer561

    This place is amazing. One of my favorite shops! Cookie dough is a must have

  231. not2day

    Great place. Knowledgeable ppl working with great deals and what a great location

  232. slundered

    The edible factory 4 pcs are not as strong as they were, it was worth the deal.

  233. Crystallee

    Very amusing, I love how the place looks so incognito. And no matter how much time has passed in~between my visits, the staff always remembers me. And of course it goes without saying that their stock is Top O`Line!dYOEz

  234. dananelson

    Very dissapointed in the Moxie cartridge, I went for The Clear, but they are always running out and it’s extra pricy there as well! Like this place but they need to keep more quantity in stock!

  235. Ericdroberts123

    Rebecca and Jevin helped me out due to i had an egg allergy. they are very helpful

  236. StonerCase420

    My last visit I was very satisfied and was helped and everyone I’m always informed of something new.and I’m so sad that the due date was forwarded to October so I have been calling that number that was given to me to keep our medicine.

  237. DHerson

    I was impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the employees at Lake Effect. I will definitely be buying my meds here.

  258. appleseed30

    I really have to do a 2nd review on this place. I had it all wrong after coming here on a bad day. After all policy is policy. Onto the flower, I picked out 3 strains all kosher. If you get a chance try Stankfinger you wont be disappointed.

Here you are well taken care of, no matter what your need. These kind people are like family, even calling you by first name. I never have left with a frown. Thank you for all you help me with. #KnuckleBump

  265. EWood91

    Really can’t say enough nice things about this place. The remodel looks great and I really appreciate the new price point for the buds on sale. All the staff is excellent but special shout out to Joe and Dave for the greeting today. Things like that keep me coming back.

  266. Sherman89

    This place makes you feel welcome and is always a warm inviting place

  267. dreadlocmigo

    Great Place and the atmosphere is wonderful

  268. 3catsintheyard

    We had our first trip to a dispensary. It had a nice atmosphere and although busy, had a reasonable wait time. Eric was our bud tender. He was very helpful and answered questions without judging or hurrying us. He seemed well informed and guided us towards different strains that might benefit our health issues. Overall we had a comfortable and successful visit and will go back to Lake Effects again.

  269. jjsticky420

    been awhile sense I’ve last come by. Went by thursday before a event. Yet again very pleasant experience and very helpful in finding what I needed.

  270. Kyliecopeland

    Joe was great and the flower was good

  271. hybridstrand

    Can’t rave enough about this place. The Grape Stomper actually tastes like grape soda pop. You guys have some awesome flavors.

  272. MrDrPiratePHD

    Lake Effect consistently has great selection, relaxing atmosphere, and top-notch service. It is about an hour drive from my location, but it is always worth the trip.

  294. CarrieLyn

    The budtenders were knowledgeable and helpful. The dispensary was clean and professional. It was a great experience for my first time to any dispensary. I will definitely be back.

  295. Kyle.Ceci88

    Prices are insanely high compared to every other dispensary in the state and their bud is no better if you have the ability drive anywhere else unless you like spending more than you should have too.

  296. Lizard1212

    Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I love this place!

  297. ganjaguy79

  313. mom_with_a_medcard

    this was my second dispensary and i wish it was my first. this place was welcoming and extremely friendly. i struggle with social anxiety and after only a few minutes in here, i felt relaxed enough like i was just talking a friend! my bud tender, jeff, said he was kinda new but sure didn’t seam like it. he was very knowledgeable and took his time with me. despite the drive from me to this place, i will for sure be coming back not just for the experience but also the quality of bud and wax that ranges in price from affordable to not but the quality seems to be in everything 🙂

  314. MBuchino

    Joe helped me my first visit, he was very informative about all the products!

  315. jottusch

    I’ve been coming to lake effect for almost 2 years now. I’ve been to Detroit Lansing Ann arbor and hands down they have the best quality in the state. The price is fitting for the quality of medicine, quality of budtender, and quality of care for the patient experience. always clean and the budtenders make the wait worth it. I will remain a life long customer

  316. jdubs7305

    What a great spot! First time visit and I was there less than 15 min, super friendly and had some really great edibles. Customer for life.

  317. tbeattie89

    These guys were amazing, they listened to what my issues were and steered me in the right direction. Can’t wait to visit again, 🙂

  325. Bryan1725

    Very friendly staff!! Got us our paperwork we need to sign basically going through the process like any legit place would. It’s always nice when the workers or person your working with are very friendly and knowledgeable to their product! Definitely will be back and the others I was with said the same thing also. Good buds in every price range, all bud is lab tested and they even have a card on the front with more information. GO CHECK IT OUT!!

  332. Kala_666

    I’ll be the first one at the door when They reopen! Hopefully soon. Governor Witmer please do the right thing reopen all Patient safe, Quality Medicine Dispensaries!!

  333. joshdevz

    Service is great, quality is good, have lots of options, very very pricey though. I am from out of state and I am staying in the Kalamazoo/portage area and I didn’t think to drive elsewhere for medical marijuana, but after checking prices in Lansing, go there. Prices are much cheaper, worth the gas money to go get cheaper products that are as good or better. Especially oil cartridges.


    My budtender took time and made some very excellent points and helped me make my own decision. Its not always about the high. I have already recommended them after my first visit. I will return…

  335. Melloow23

    Always greeted with a smile and the staff is knowledgeable

  336. Medwoman

    From my first visit to my most recent visit I have always felt comfortable here. The staff is outstanding, knowledgable, and helpful. Peter Hofstra ,bud master,
    always has a smile to share. But all the Staff go out of thier way to make sure to help you get what you need, introduce you to something that might help better and of course share those smiles. dY~dY~

  337. Nyati

    Bud tenders and desk people are super friendly all the time! Wish customers would be too!

  338. sweatergoblin

    Where to start, this place is amazballs. I got a free gram as a new patient. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, they recommend a few strains for me and so far they we dead on. They only offer flower but wow hands down some of the best bud I have smoked in the state. I recommend the Private Stash Blue Cheese, Blueberry Pancakes, and the sour diesel all 3 are fantastic. They were doing a remodel so the place was a little disorganized but that didn’t slow them down at all can’t wait to be back.

  339. DabbinSourpatch

    Mark helped me when I went in, he was very knowledgeable and helpful. Had a lot of strains to pick through!!

  340. Savage321

    beautiful happy very nice. place.

  341. Gailbug87

    i love them. Rachael is a good manager and it shows in the other staff.

  342. tsam

    GREAT place Awesome workers couldn’t get any better

  343. Ptsdpatient269

    Front counter person was clearly blown out of their mind. They ignored what i said when i handed my credentials to include me telling her it was my first time there. Two people walked in and went back before me so I asked what was going on and she simply just did not do what she was supposed to when I went to check in. Then they failed to tell me that they’re takes two pieces of identification on top of your medical card that is never ever happened anywhere else at any other dispensary and I’ve been to quite a few of them. Horrible customer service horrible attention to detail I think everybody there needs to lay off the medicine before coming to work. If stopped by LAW ENFORCEMENT the only thing required is a valid photo id and valid mmj card. No other dispensary I’ve ever been too has had this issue. They need to make that known so people dont waste their time on an unprofessional business.

  344. turner1138

    A very good business. They are professional yet laid back. Very friendly and kind. They will even help you find what you need based on the pain or ailment you have. I have used your services many times and every time has been a pleasure.
    My only thought is to invest in your office. Its important to make the process feel like you are a reputable and professional medical office. This will boost your “Atmosphere” Rating from 3 to 5 stars.

  345. Mayo79

    My second time there! The staff are amazing and medicine is perfect for what ails you. Thanks for the service Lake Effect! See you again soon

  346. greenlantern024

    Professional staff, clean and well maintained facility. Medicine was well presented and well organized so even a guy like me who doesn’t know a lot about strains could figure it out. Putting the menu out front is a good idea which none of the dispensaries I’ve been to have.

    Only negatives to me were sort of feeling crammed against the windows when you walk in while there’s quite a bit of space behind the desk. A better layout might

  347. KitsuneNaturalWellness

    They always have a great selection here and they rotate strains out regularly. I stop in once every couple of weeks and the staff is incredibly nice and so happy to talk to you about their favorites or give recommendations . Their menu ranges so even for those on a tighter budget, they can still have access to top quality medicine.

  348. lizardgurrl

    Just visited for my first time a week ago and loved it. Good selection, good staff, good product. Will shop again!

  349. Squid80

    By far the best dispensery in Michigan.

  350. Mrs_M

    I have never seen an unhappy employee they are polite, helpful and knowledgeable.

  351. jbenn891

    Great meds, extremely friendly bud tenders. My favorite dispensary to visit in Michigan.

  352. Misterleo2

    Lake Effect is The best legit place for your meds!

  353. ironman710

    Good quality products. Ridiculously expensive!…

  354. dancingbutterflies

    Always top quality medicine in stock, plus, great service and friendly smiles.

  355. Mikeyjizzle8732

    Definitely a good dispensary, good selection with quality merchandise. Also good service too. Would definitely recommend!

  356. Zayden15

    Great conversations with staff, very experienced and knowledgeable workers.. Great prices, nice selections of flowers and wax.. Would recommend this location to EVERYONE

  357. Wagshow

    What was the outcome of court today? I am off the text update chain somehow. I need to know I drive 40 miles to get the best!

  358. Tonybutler

    love the elmers glue.

  359. East86

    I love this place everyone there is legit and basically remembers me when I was through the door with great product….Was wondering about how we go about obtaining our 2018 purchase records for taxes….

  360. MikP

    Quality meds, knowledgeable staff, competitive prices

  361. bruceboy1

    appreciate replacing a defective cartridge at no cost – great customer service!

  362. Jlun123

    Love the chocolate Thai claw cartridge.

  363. kassiekimble

    I absolutely love this place! The friendly and knowledgeable staff make it an enjoyable experience evey time I visit!

  364. jbon22

    Awesome service, great products

  365. Swearah

    This place has a professional and laid back feel to it. The guys usually greet me by name. Awesome employees, really friendly. I always leave happy!

  366. joshkerns1

    friendly staff low wait time will be back

  367. Gailbug

  368. NSpatton

    Great Staff And Meds Some Of The Best In Mi

  369. chasestoner

    got 1 g purp punch feels good smoking

  370. pueblom

    great atmosphere, friendly customer service and decent quality for the price!!

  371. fatalwing51

    Fantastic products, not overly priced too, great staff as well.

  372. afruit

    Great location. Friendly staff. A decent selection of meds for a variety of ailments. They do not sell wax or oils, but this is because the city isn’t properly educated on the topic.

  373. happymaddison710

    The friendliest and most knowledgeable establishment I’ve ever seen. I wish everyone in the state had their stuff in order like these guys. well done.

  374. jcoop77

    Amazing customer service and wide range of edibles and strains!

  375. ryanquick

    Phenomenal bud, personable staff, good prices and plenty of discounts! This was my first dispensary trip and they’ve definitely made a regular out of me. The Danny Trevino, 24k, and Amherst Sour D are top-notch, and the Pineapple Skunk was probably the best strain I’ve ever tried.

  376. RedemptionKush

    Over priced meds, does not give you the proper pricing online and when you call to ask are in no way any more helpful. If you don’t live in Kalamazoo to just look yourself your better off going to Lansing like everyone who lives nearby has to

  377. Uncleray92

    They are tooo expensive for some things,thats why ive been going to Lansing, $85.00 for 1g vape rediculous to me, i get those 4 for $106 in Lansing. only because they are the only ones here. . Not fair. Quit gouging customers.

  378. bcpb17

    Out of the few dispensaries that I’ve been to, this location is by far the best. The building and workers are organized and clean which goes toward overall presentation. When I walk in the door I’m always greeted directly, promptly and respectfully. Every single worker at Lake Effect is amazing and it’s workers are kind, caring and loving toward anyone and everything.

  379. jujuofthebush

    Won’t go back anymore, I tried to get behind these guys, but greed is the order of the day, their biggest draw is lab tests well everything is going to be lab tested, also everything is $5-$20 more for the same product all over Michigan (look at moxie products and the clear anything state wide) tired of paying inflated prices so they can have a cool tent at the ht cannabis cup… I’m done until it’s patients over profits again

  380. Shirey83

    I love this place. The people there are friendly and very helpful. They have a great selection flowers. It’s the only place I go to.

  381. J2smoov12

    this is the only place on the west side of the state that offers this much care and variety. Everyone is friendly and knows your name enough to even have an idea of what you’re looking for when you step foot in the store

  382. serahennrich

    staff was personable, helpful & very knowledgeable

  383. Ottomatik56

    Nice staff and lots of products to choose from.

  384. Dire_wolf

    Probably the best in Michigan and I’ve been all over. Connoisseur grade selection and quality. Great staff… wish I remember their names but they have all pretty much been great to deal with and super helpful. Can get overly busy sometimes but the wait is worth it.

  385. Koniginwolf

    My favorite thing about Lake Effect is the people and atmosphere. The staff knows my name when I come in and it always feels like I’ve come back to see friends. Thanks Guys and Gals you’re great!

  386. konigin_wolf

    Been a long time customer. Friendly and professional I would recommend.

  387. Bradshaw1977

    Nice staff. Good prices.

  388. NIKKIB713

    Always pleasant and friendly staff ensuring the needs of patients are met with a smile. Love returning to this facility again and again.

  389. RKoonce269

    I absolutely love this place! Peacefull atmosphere. The people are awesome and very friendly. I always look forward to coming back. I’ll never go anywhere else!

  390. SirPlooferson

    The service and product here is beyond expectation. Everyone is very knowledgeable and willing to educate you on any questions you have. The staff, from the moment you walk in, to the moment you leave make you feel welcome and comfortable. I would definitely recommend any friend that’s a patient to this location! Great work! Keep it up!

  391. Keesha1423

    Love this dispensary great environment great service and a nice variety of products

  392. oseller1

    John B was very helpful!! They were so nice and helpful! Also their new client deal was amazing! I would highly recommend going here! This is the only place I want to go from now on!

  393. hoopnotiq

    The medicine is always effective and the people are amazing. They are knowledgeable and they do anything and everything they can to make you feel welcomed and comfortable while making certain to help you find the best medicine suited to my conditions. Of course, that doesn’t even take into account how friendly they all are.

    While I still have to drive out of town, it is most certainly the closest dispensary to my location. I am so grateful for their special attention to small details. They send out updates, keeping me informed if my favorite strains are back in stock or of the frequent specials they run. Lake Effect is definitely #1 in my book.

  394. alicia22

    Highly recommend!

  395. RB2015

    This was my first time in a dispensary, I didn’t know what to really expect. I must say the staff was so helpful they took their time to answer all my questions, even though I had a ton. Tori recommend I try a verity and recommend 3 different strains. I LOVE THEM ALL. They had little cards explaining what the effects would be and everything. Great selection of top quality meds I highly recommend you pay them a visit.

  396. AshyaMarie

    My budtender was Shelby. She was pretty great and patient with me!

  397. waana

    Thank you, thank you for being here. I can’t begin to tell you what a difference this has made for me. The staff here is friendly, knowledgeable, and always willing to take the time to explain things to me, no matter how busy they are.

  398. Knightkylie

    All the bud tenders are super nice and knowledgeable. Also always have great product.

  400. Nick0105

    Awesome place to go.

  401. AdamDahlgren

    Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Makes everyone feel welcome. the products are first class.

  402. Llsward98

    Lake effect is by far my favorite dispensary in my area. Their products never let me down! Staff are always helpful and have a smile on their face. My recent consultant was Pieter Hofstra, he was very friendly and helpful. The dispensary is well organized and clean!

  403. jackrabbix

    Quality is ok, prices DEFINITELY reflect the lack of competition in the area. About TWICE as expensive as I pay in AA, and not as high quality.

    Waiting area could be worse, but it’s meh.

  404. masterblaster87

    I decided for my second trip I would take advantage of the pre-order service they offer. I called in and then made the 1.5 hr drive, just to get there and have them say they didn’t have what I needed in stock… sort of defeated the purpose of doing the pre-order….not a great 2nd visit. The first trip in earlier this month was excellent though…staff was super helpful, meds were top notch.

  405. reJoyce

    I’m a medical nightmare with doctors all over the state. I’ve stopped checking other dispensaries because the quality difference is like night and day. Not only is the flower magnitudes better than anywhere else, their entire staff is outstanding in their knowledge and patience in finding exactly the right edible or smokable for your needs.

  406. brookeshepherd

    It’s nice clean I get a free gram when I bring a friend

  407. tony_terhaar

    Great dispo n West Michigan. Tons of quality selection, and friendly staff.

  408. Peacefulsoul31

    Great location and great selection of medicine as well as a very easy going environment.

  409. KinoGreen420

    I had a great experience, it was my first time visiting. I got a free gram and a free one hitter. Staff was great, knowledgable and helpful. It’s a one on one experience when you get into the back where the bud is kept.

  410. jamescw75

    A very good visit. I had waited for weeks to go because of southwest, MI attitude. It was very helpful for my conditions. Quality, but high prices. Things will get better in time.

  411. Jnousen15

    My favorite place to go. Was hoping you’d be open by today for my birthday for the free bday gift but hoping you’ll be open soon! Always super friendly here.

  412. Morgan_B

    Went for my first visit as a new patient. Very friendly, clean, professional atmosphere with approachable staff. Prices were a bit high for some items, but the daily specials more than made up for it. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, and will be bringing in friends from other areas who have been afraid to come to a dispensary for their first times too!

  413. HiddenDreams420

    Amazingly friendly staff- knowledgeable about their products and very helpful. As the first storefront Ive been in, it couldnt have been a nicer experience- Id tell anybody to check it out!!

  414. rellosig

    this place is awesome cool people good weed clean environment and best of all GREAT DEALS!!!

  415. Bake2015

    It was awesome!! Very organized and nate the consultant that helped me was friendly and really helpful!

  417. YoungStoneyKev

    The service here is always top notch! Even when they’re busy they get you in and out smoothly.

  418. mh321

    Best place to go when in kalamazoo county. Educated and excellent staff, quality services they stand by.

  419. jerrythompson161

    Always expanding with great success, keep up the good work guys 🙂

  420. BudBro44

    Not bad. Little parking upfront and the parking is plenty in the back. Staff is very helpful with questions.

  421. Bobbywomac

    A diamond in the rough.

  422. Selise1959

    As first time users Rebecca was wonderful. Very knowlegeable and helpful in finding out what would be best to fight my wife’s cancer. Not only did she recommend what to use and dosing information for THC and CBD capsules she was also a great source for diet and vitamin supplements. Can’t yet report on the effectiveness but do feel we have a partner on this journey. Thank you!

  423. T_uhhhhh

    Love it!

  424. Ruthmayfield2018

    Actually the service,the meds

  425. mrgreenthumb78

    its a nice safe location

  426. CitizenBane

    Always great service, and decent prices. Every time I walk in, I learn something new.

  427. Gtrick08

    The quality of flower is usually very good. Which is what I look for.
    Only thing that I can say negative is price but you usually get what you pay for.

  428. LeeLeeW22

    I Always have a great experience. Staff is always very friendly and helpful.

  429. punkthebunny

    I love coming to Lake Effect because they are the nicest people you could meet. Plus they are incredibly knowledgeable about all their products.

  430. Jleathal

    Love this place always nice good people there.

  431. jpks76

    Best of the best, EVERYONE knows you and greats you like no other place I’ve been to. You guys are the BEST!

  432. jmillard5

    Staff is amazing. products are quality. wide variety but if u require alot of medicine this place is not affordable. they don’t offer any affordable concentrates and their flower is overpriced. after a year of using lake effect as my only provider of medicine I recently started driving to Lansing dispensaries and as a result have cut my monthly medicine cost in half.

  433. chronicjefferson

    Most knowledgeable staff on the west side of Michigan and medical grade cleanliness make for a medical patient’s favorite and most reliable dispensary.

  434. FlipKid

    Very laid back enviroment so it was easy to feel comfortable. All of the staff were very imformative and helpful. See ya soon!

  435. demon63

    Jeff is a great bartender.
    Clean and good atmosphere.
    Thanks for the help.

  436. Alycat8

    I like to look at then flowers and smell them before I decide which strain is best for me; some dispensaries have staff that seem a bit inpatient while I go through this process but Lake Effect is always so willing to spend an abundant amount of time helping me decide which medicine is best for me. I would recommend this establishment to any new patient.

  437. FreeSpirit08

    Love the people they’re so helpful and kind!

  438. Blaze_Dragonclaw

    I love the staff here they all take the time to know me as more than just another patient. The quality of the bud here is also top notch.

  439. PokerkidT21

    Great place to come and get meds. Everyone is very friendly even the other patients that come through. Keep up the good work Lake Effect.

  440. Shaggyshack13

    Awesome place

  441. nhugh90

    honestly, I was happy too see so many people in this store. at first I felt uncomfortable considering there was roughly 25 people waiting to be called back but I checked in and was seen within 20 minutes of the check in. they are really nice here and explain everything too you without you feeling like a complete idiot if your new. I haven’t slept for more then 3 hours in the last month, these guys recommended some strains that made me go night night real fast. iam impressed and relieved. so relieved in fact iam going back around noon today for more. my first visit I spent 15 bucks and got everything I needed including a free gram. if your considering going to this dispensary I highly recommend it, and even if you are comfortable with your current dispensary, check these guys out and
    get your free gram. once you buy here, you’ll always buy here! thanks guys.

  442. stickydollbud

    OMG!!!!! Today was the first day I’ve been in since they remodeled, it looks amazing and as always the service is great

  443. DougiePhresh

    First time coming here and the service was exceptional. John my tender gave me the full run through of their selection and deals as soon as I walked through the door. A++

  444. Nugfarm269

    Lake Effect is a cool place. The bud tenders are awesome, and they have a great atmosphere. They are always willing to try and help. Nate is a great bud tender who won’t steer you wrong. The bud can be hit and miss, but they always have at least one that will surly satisfy. They also have a good selection of other medicated options, that I have always had good experiences with. I mainly go there for cartridges. They do pre-orders making it very easy to get in and out, as they have the full menu in the lobby on the tv screens. The only time they ever mixed up my pre order and gave me the wrong cartridge; I came back they next day and they swapped it with the one they gave me. All in all I would highly recommend this place as a great local option.

  445. Sacslayer

    This be my spot. Every time I go they have such a great variety. The meds are always on point. From wax to concentrate to flowers and edibles you can’t go wrong. But the thing more then Anything else that keeps me going back is the staff. They are always so friendly, very helpful and kind. From the first time I came in and signed up with Tori I Felt right at home. Customer service is a lost art and it’s nice to know that Lake Effect still has it. Thank you to the whole Lake Effect Crew!

  446. kmdeez

    First time patient and haven’t used for 20 years. Staff was super knowledgeable and helpful to make sure I was getting what I needed. If if I didn’t know exactly what that was. Will 100% be returning.

  447. CamSiebenmark93

    I love sitting there and seeing multiple new first time patients today like good for the patients and good for Lake Effect. Those patients came to the right place that’s for sure.

  448. FlowerPowerMama

    Everyone is very helpful and knowledgable on the product they stock. Great deals for high quality medicine. I’ve been in a few times since my first visit, I’ve loved everything that I’ve gotten from here. I will continue going back, this is my first stop for medicine.

  449. Dlh19

    Thanks Mark for making it yet another awesome trip, friendly helpful service with grat products.

  450. Bigredmachine

    Great friendly staff with a nice well rounded selection. Very relaxed and friendly environment.

  451. Stillsmokin247

    By far the most professionally ran establishment I have been to from the receptionist to the budtenders. Great atmosphere I will be back.

  452. Enriquepeterson

    Dope place

  453. porter211

    Awesome they know their stuff and keep the products A1 great place for being local. My No1 place to go for me would recommend to anyone who wants quality

  454. 66Lincoln

    Staff is ALWAYS friendly! Knowledge is power, and they know their product. The waiting room was full today. A gentleman who obviously works there says, “if anyone wants to pre-order we can get you out of here quicker.” I decided to take him up on his offer and got my meds in less than 7 minutes! Gorilla Glue #4 is the special today, $12/g. Pleased with the meds.

  455. JRRToken722

    Quality meds with a knowledgeable staff!! Free gram with first time visit!! Friendly environment!

  456. bgreen1

    awesome place and people

  457. MIBUZZ

    All around great shop! Unsurpassed customer service. Clean, safe feeling. A prior review mentioned the need for “special incentives” for repeat customers, and I tend to agree. To be fair though, while there I noticed $18 g. on sale for $12 g. and I received a free gram as a new customer. By the way, get a $20 g. when taking advantage of this special. Personally I’d like to see some Jack dandy “shop keef” or even some $100 “shop medical shake” ounces available for when the funds run low. When I compare the top shops in Detroit and Lansing to this one, it easily holds its own. Because of gray areas in the local ordinances and State law, the selection is strictly flowers. But they are some damn good flowers from seemingly damn good people!

  458. Guitarded550

    Very polite and knowable staff! I felt very welcomed. 10 out of 10! highly recommended! Great selection!

  459. weezy4201985

    This is a great place! Every single time I’m here I’m giving no problems and the whole atmosphere is friendly! Products are great! My bud the fee was Aric D! Cool ass dude!

  460. cocolyn333

    I don’t normally write reviews, but in this instance I feel compelled. Lake Effect has helped me tremendously during this time of my journey…beyond words…actually. But… I’ll try to share some words, so you will go check this place out for yourself! a~o

    I’m new to the Medical Marijuana scene, I also manage social anxiety & stomach issues, so I was a bit intimidated to visit any dispensory. But from the first phone call…

    Lake Effect not only met my expectations, but exceeded that bar. a~o

    This facility is exceptional…clean & organized. The employees are kind, helpful, & patient. They listen & try to help. Plus…all the product’s have been top self. Bonus! dY’dY~EURdY’

    Have an amazing day…and stop by Lake Effect, it’s worth it! dYOEzaoe”dY’faoe”

    (Oh ya…BIG Shout outs to Mark for being so patient & helpful yesterday and “hearing” my needs…even through all my shaky nervous energy! I appreciate you! a~o)

  461. FallenAngel808

    Awesome and so are the workers

  462. dqkazoo

    Excellent and courteous service.

  463. George011

    This location is the only one in Kalamazoo and defiantly is worth a visit.

  464. Ssparks70

    They were very helpful with information.very friendly.

  465. MACIE1

    Dave was Very professional, respectful and friendly. He took the time to answer All of our questions. Really comfortable environment.

  466. JokerTokerSmoker

    This place a f*cking fantastic for being the first ones to open up around here. They went above my expectations, had too many strains on the shelf for me to choose from, but i guess if that was my only problem, that should say something about it. I’m a regular and the staff has quickly become a huge part of my life because they’re always looking out for me and my med condition. I can’t drive so having this place close by is awesome and the staff is just a bonus for patients, making the whole experience fun. Keep up the good work

  467. Brandonpeterson

    Order online if you want to be in and out.

  468. RimStoker

    Lake Effects is Top shelf and best all around place in the state for all meds and needs. Go on down an see Joe,Luna and the rest of the lake effects family. You will be well cared for. I fully recommend this place to all… This is the only place ill go from now on and you all should as well.

  469. valeriekatrina7

    I have been a patient at lake effect since August and they have never failed to delivery consistent and effective care! Every employee is helpful and kind; the ones I have gotten to know a little better (Nate; Luna; Logan) are all super personable and really delve into details of all things they supply so that I am best medicated to suit my specific needs. Also, every front desk/check in person I have ever met here has been so chill and lovely; waiting there is pleasurable and I get to look at the entire menu on big ole TVs or watch whatever entertaining program they have on. Plus that on-site ATM can’t really be beat since I’m a card person.

  470. MarieBortz

    I worked with John B. On 10-4-2018. He is very helpful. Thanks.

  471. rpb942

    Can get busy so plan accordingly but staff is so cool you’ll hardly notice if there is a wait!

    Love walking into the waiting room and seeing it filled with patients. Your senses are quickly high jacked by the aroma of freash quality medication. A pleasantry to any who enter indeed. Knowing they are always stocked with the top strains, usally 20+ gives patients the confindence of consistancy at the same time providing the oppourtunity to discover what strain is best for thier paticular ailment. Patients also have the luxury of examining meds first hand before purchase. Also the refferal and point system is a nice perk.

  473. bloodfiend

    I use this place quite regularly and love it have a great selection

  474. Michigent

    One of the best dispensaries in Southwest Michigan! Friendly staff is there to help you make a the best selection for you and is very knowledgeable. Pricing here is very reasonable and you’ll be able to get some great dank without breaking the bank!

  475. MarinesGrandma

    I am so glad my son gave me their card. I think it is truly a blessing to have medicine like this available.

  476. Corvette1963

    Great place and great device. Even better bud.

  479. crocidilecase

    Great people. Clean meds!

  480. jjdl1028

    I have been here a few times and I really love the live resin every time I have gotten it. There prices are steep but the do have daily deals. If it is your first time they have a great first time gift and a nice referral program too, but have an extra something with your name and address like a debit card or something along with both ID’s.

  481. lokorocha

    A good spot, location-wise to be in for patients convenience.

  482. Jon316420710

    I had to make an account just to give the guys a shout out. Every time I am in there I feel like their best friend. They greet you with a warm smile by your first name. Everything is so clean and organized. Even when there is a long line they get you out really fast. It’s so cool they have some moldy bud on display to show you what not to get at other places. Five stars.

  483. jboy269

    Went there for the first time today. It simply blew my mind. it was a great experience will be looking forward to visiting again.

  484. KTsmokylungs

    Such a great place, husband and I were very recent 1st time patients. All the staff was so helpful and gave great recommendations. Great selections, will definitely be coming back again.

  485. onetwotreefo

  488. 2GiftingHands

    Stopped in within an hour of the closing time and still had a Clean, professional, personal experience. Meds are handled properly, great variety of indicas/sativas & hybrids, everything is well labeled and staff was super kind. One of the nicer kept shops in the state. Keep it up!

  492. jalvarez3185

    I absolutely love Lake Effect and the people who work there. They really take the time to listen to my symptoms and help me get the right strains to help me. It’s an awesome location, easy to find, and the product is excellent. I absolutely recommend going to pay them a visit, you won’t be disappointed!!

  493. leonards269

    pricing can be a little steep. but you get what you pay for

    You guys are wonderful , I am so freaking happy you are open again. Anyone who hasn’t been must go !

  505. Jazzcat00

    Pieter Hofstra was very knowledgeable and staff is always kind

  506. NineMilly9

    Generally love everything about LE! Disappointed beyond description in JE Rosin medicine. Have tried twice, both times came on a foil backed, cheap sheet. Was too liquid to scrape and never solidified in my freezer (not that it should require freezing). Sent L.E. two FB msgs, ledt voice message for mngr, and mentioned to budtenders. Nobody has reached out to help with this issue. I love everything about this place, with this being my only quality/customer service issue that I can ever recall. Stay away from the JE Rosin, wasted $100 on it!!!

  507. ScoobyGoo

    Nice rotating selection. Some very good test results on delicious strains.

  508. riverbob6775

    This place is very friendly and helpful. Really good flower

  509. ob64

    Their daily deal system is great. You have a chance of getting great bud for up to a third cheaper than usual! Last time I went I got Caesar on sale and was definitely not disappointed!

  510. Kendallscare

    Being from Lansing I cannot believe I have not heard of such a top notch place. The products they offer are all insanely good. I’m used to playing medicine roulette in Lansing, where you never know what you are going to end up with when you roll it up. This place is fire af… I will be back.

  511. baktrakkin

    They are open. Remodeling done!!!

  512. KushDaddyFarms

    I travel the state and I’ve been to as many provision/holistic/dispensary as I can remember. No where else follows compliance to the aEURoeTaEUR. They always have your top shelf meds and they are always making sure to put it in rotation for the deals of the day. If your going anywhere else for true and high quality meds then your wasting time, money, and your jeopardizing your health.

  513. Ross74

    Oh my God I went in there and Rebecca was awesome she gave me everything I need it I love this place

  514. BrookieTrout

    Always willing to drive the extra distance for the quality and consistency of medicine and service here! And always a fantastic selection of meds. Will continue to recommend this place.

  515. Bemeweyou

    Everyone is so helpful and friendly here. Super efficient in and out. Always has what we like!

  516. Dragonfly81

    Rebecca did an amazing job getting me familiar with the shop. She focused on my needs and took time to helped me find the best medicine to help with my condition. I left feeling more educated about my medicine and what will best help bring me some relief. I’m very grateful.

  517. Mkfsanchez

    Joe is the best budtender always very helpful on the strands you are looking for to use for pain sleep etc.

  518. Belmony1


  519. jevinusmc

    Best crew and best flower in the mitten. Fairly priced when compared to other dispensarys in the state. Keep it up Lake Effect!

  520. stumpydew

    Nice selection, awesome knowledgeable staff. Would recommend this dispensary for new patients and old.

  521. Lala143

    Ok so I really like the Juana honey sticks…however, I found an old unopened one yesterday (I could tell bc their packaging has since changed) and I noticed a difference in mg strength for what is supposed to be the same price/same product. So maybe if they could be a little more consistent…

    All other edibles I’ve tried from here tend to be pretty good!

    The staff here is excellent. It’s no secret. They’re professional but also very friendly and welcoming!!!

  522. EpicFales

    I was really nervous because I am new to all this, but the service, knowledge, and kindness at Lake Effect made everything easy. I’m grateful for them. After hearing about contaminated products elsewhere, I was comforted by Lake Effect’s promise to test everything. Relieved.

  523. 420Jazz

    Experienced, friendly, and very helpful staff to help you. Very nice place with true, lab-tested meds. Meds are VERY high quality! You’ll be extremely happy with Lake Effect!!

  524. simostrainz

    Little pricey but great quality

  525. asedo23

    I’m so happy that a great place like this with great people are so close by my home. They have everything you need and plenty of people to help with any question. I would highly recommend stopping by.

  526. Fonsy

    It is very nice to know that medical patients in the Kalamazoo and Portage are can go to a place like this one to get their meds. The place is great, their staff is friendly and they have a very decent variety of flowers. It is just a matter of time until this place can develop at its full-potential and help individuals with an even greater variety of products. But, needless to say, I was pleased with the quality of their flowers. Keep the spirit up Lake-Effect. See you soon.

  527. S-Sparky

    Joe offered good information and was very helpful . Nice place

  528. Novalee48

  538. huepstarr

    Had me in and out for a first time visit in half an hour. Amazing dedication to detail and tenders are all very nice and helpful.

  539. benzerman

    Very nice except if your suppose to get any freebies an place a order a head of time be sure to check your bag! Because I assumed mine was in there an was not

  540. RebeccaHAC

    I love the friendly, knowledgeable staff. I also appreciate that they test their product to ensure the best quality medicine possible. I will definitely be back!

  541. Phattious420

    Awesome service. They treat you with it there.

  542. MacGhoila

    I like how friendly and knowledgeable the consultants are… Joe is the coolest.. Selection is great!

  543. Rhiannon0813

    Missing blueberry pancakes like crazy.. but there are so many choices .. Lake Effect is rocking

  544. Gee_wizzard

    I have always loved Lake Effect. The staff is always kind and knowledgeable. The stock is near always top shelf, however it tends to be on the costly side of provisioning centers. Overall it’s worth a look at least!

  545. kawallski69

    Tight parking but definitely worth the drive… Nicest dispensary I’ve ever been too… dY$?–dY$?–dY$?–

  546. potfox1428

    1st time visit today and I’m def
    going back for sure. It was a safe environment, I liked how you payed separate so no one knew what you were walking out with. Good quality bud too.

  547. Noski

  551. beastybuds77

    Nice place great peepsdY~Z. They are getting the shop redone. It looks great so far, cant wait to see it complete. The crew here is legit the best Ive met. Educated on meds, helpful and a damn good time. Check em out. Definitely worth your time! Thanks Lake Effect !!!

  552. abilicke

    Absolutely amazing. Super friendly. They know all their information.

  553. shipooh

    The staff is helpful and informative. I just wished they were able to keep cartridges on the shelf. I seem to always have to travel to Lansing or Ann Arbor because they always have them in stock and it’s my prefered method to medicate. If you’re looking for a nice flower they can help you out though.

  554. GanjaButler

    I found out about these guys at the Cannibas cup. I went to visit the site and was blown away by the dealsand the customer service. Can’t wait to go back.

  555. Denim89

  558. Roxy0616

    They not only test everything that they sell, they make sure you are aware of exactly what you are getting for your money as well. The staff is absolutely amazing! They truly stand by their customers and do everything they can to help. I have never left disappointed. I won’t go anywhere but Lake Effect and I haven’t for over a year now!

  559. JB2194

    I love the service and the employees they make great recommendations for how I feel throughout a day and Know there stuff it’s good to see the educational part of Mary jane alive

  560. Chipowski

    Just moved to the area and stopped by for the first time and let me tell you, this place is da bomb! Nice waiting area, clean and spacious but most importantly they had THE BEST medicine. I love top shelf but noticed they had solid mids very reasonably priced. I tried out a couple strands and can’t wait to go back for more!

  561. PimpstonChills

    Fire flower. Knowledged staff. I will continue getting my meds here.

  562. heathenhomie420

    Completely amazing staff, very nice steup and great medicine as well. For it being my first time, I rate 5 stars. Will be visiting again.

  563. NathanLeeJones

    Online ordering is the best. They always have so much of a selection and I can be in and out so quickly. I’m loving it for real.

  564. agqluv

    I love lake effect! Their product selection is always reliable and of good quality and the dispensary itself is extremely organized with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The only thing I’d change is I would make their lobby area more homey (:

  565. KALIMON3000

    I really enjoyed the professionalism and variety; I highly recommend all patients make a vist!

  566. rosebousamra

    This place is quiet, clean, and super friendly. They have great meds and a great selection, everything I’ve tried from here has been incredible.

  567. QCbangerFam

    Five star place ri-cheer! Can’t wait for that cup winning Brain Wreck to hit the shelves again!

  568. BreCarlene

    I always enjoy coming to Lake Effect because every time I get in and out with exactly what I went there for. I enjoy talking with the staff especially Jessica. She’s greats!!

  569. FrecklyGem

    Absolute best quality. Only place I’ve been to within 100 miles that has such a high quality. bad side is the price comes with the quality. it’s not over priced, lansing doesn’t have the same quality. if you’re looking for a cheaper buds with great quality than either “Best Buds” or “cornerstone welness” in lansing is where you want to go. Promise you won’t find a higher quality than Lake effect!

  570. PufferBLY65

    Great and friendly service, yet not everyone is as knowledgeable as I would think they could be and a hair pricey. The guy that waited on me was very patient & seemed very knowledgeable. Most of products I’ve tried were good.

  571. 4psnu

    Wowzers those platinum cookies are amazing

  572. QueenOverton35

    Friendly, helpful staff and great productsdY~S

  573. hiseajays

    Always a great experience, amazing quality, friendly staff, and pleasant atmosphere. Prices are on the higher end, and the parking lot is small, but you won’t be disappointed.
    A friend of mine has worked there since the beginning. They have good deals, and a huge assortment of products to choose from. From cookies and candy to pre rolls , flower and concentrates. Something for everyone!
    And it’s conveniently in the Kalamazoo/Portage area. So if you’re in south west Michigan it’ll save you are long drive to lansing! Please check them out. Your support means a lot 🙂

  574. pastorBob1842

    As good as their products are the staff is great as well. Professional informative and friendly as well! Now i’m not an expert but I have been smoking pot for over 40 yrs. and think the products are well worth the money they charge. Will be back again!

  575. MommaTraplin

    Oh my gosh this place, these people are amazing! I went for the first time today and they were so helpful and so friendly!
    They made me feel welcome, they answered my questions,they made me feel like I was a friend they had known forever.
    I will bring them my business from here on out!

  576. Squid85

    Man I tell you lake effect is one of the best spots in Michigan and the best spot in Kalamazoo as a veteran there staff makes sure that all my needs are taken care of so please stop on and see the great staff at Lake effect

  577. roguedreams13

  579. monta17

    Extremely helpful staff. Always willing to take time to help you sort try to find the best product for your specific needs. Highly (dY~S) recommend!

  580. Wiccanreed

    Let me start by saying , I am grateful to have a dispensary .
    But , for chronically / terminally ill patients who are living on very limited income it’s somewhat unaffordable .
    With a Dispensary it comes to eat or medication .
    That’s sad .
    People are very nice here .
    service is good but as I said almost unaffordable .
    It’s like trying to fill a $380 prescription living on a very limited income .
    Still grateful for the service .
    In a pinch .
    I support the dispensary don’t get me wrong ,
    But thank goddess for caregivers as part of the Patient and people’s law in michigan a~(r)i,

  581. Agent907

    Very cool place. Very professional and keep a tight crew operating the facility. A sweet selection of herbs and other products. Great to have this dispensary in my neighborhood!!!

  582. Thebossman24

    Joe:) was here bud vender

  583. Sheristackagrip

    So glad I pulled my map screen out and found this place. The place down the road is a joke, you guys are awesome. Where did you come up with that Blueberry Pancake strain!? I neeeeed morrrreeee!

  584. Roballer

    Great consulting on what you are looking for.

  585. CannabiSavesLives

    Positive vibes every visit. Premium Medicine. Everyone is Knowledgeable about the medicine they really know what they are talking about. Don’t know every ones name but shouts to Joe! Great Bud Tender.

  586. coppertopp

    Really love having a place close to me. Quality products with variety, knowledgeable and friendly staff who aren’t pushy, and the ability to pre-order for a quicker pickup. Only downsides are the prices (which are def high compared to the other dispensaries I’ve been to) and the sometimes longer wait times (because they pair you with your own bud-tender and counter). Still a great place I’ll keep returning to.

  587. AllieRaine

    Everyone is very helpful!

  588. WickedBeebs

    Great dispensary! Came for my first time a few weeks ago based on a friends recommendation and was pleasantly surprised. Was driving over an hour to Lansing and now I don’t have to. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Worth the visit!

  589. Santanasmokes94

    The only reason I say 4 star for service is, you must have 3 forums of ID on you, if you don’t use a credit card, or carry around your SS card you might be screwed, other than that they give you free medicine!! Everyone you go in there you have potential to get free medicine!

  590. lyzie14

    I absolutely love the atmosphere of lake effect. Any customer of any age feels comfortable walking in here! The staff is always friendly from the second you walk in the door and are very helpful 🙂

  591. Potter710

    Best quality bud I’ve found so far!

  592. Landonsmommy18

    Its the best and worth the hour and a half drive for me

  593. CodyTheKid92

    Great people great buds!!!!

  594. K2tread

    Prices are absolutely RIDICULOUS!! Spend the gas money and go to Jackson or Lansing. Prices are much more reasonable and products are high quality!! Someone needs to open a new spot in Kalamazoo so prices aren’t so high!!!

  595. rastalocks269

    great location with a good size variety of meds.

  596. oym8blazeit

    very great reccomendations , I love the daily deal thing, and everyone is friendly. I also like the chop sticks and tongs so you know that no one is touching your weed

  597. Jayce86

    One of the better ones in the area

  598. Hutch5000

    Staff was super friendly and helpful. John was my bud tender and he was very informative, patient and kind. He helped me track what I was spending, made great recommendations, and generally made the experience great. Product was all top notch. I will definitely shop here again.

  599. crazyots

    Was surprised very nice people, lots to pick from. They seem to know about what they was sailing. I will return again Thank you

  600. butterycheeseball

    The killer cookies gives me the energy of a thousand Avengers, which is so helpful with my chronic condition. I wish we could make comments on our experience with each strain they sell. Would help in selecting new things and finding customer favorites, though the staff is super helpful. They are doing righteous work.

  601. Sonofhoser

    Cool place, worth your time.

  602. thcity1

    Always a great experience at Lake effect! Everyone is so nice and fast! Also they are very knowlegdable about any questions you may have.

  613. iraqvet0809

    Lake effect has great service and an excellent variety of different strains. Clean safe, environment and I would definitely recommend to a friend.

  614. KWZ

    Limited choices of $10/G Flower, often out of strains on the menu. All nice looking buds, Super handling and storage. I have to drive an hour and am disappointed when they are out of what I want.

  615. THaas03

    Hands down the best medicine in Michigan I’ve had. The staff is very friendly and welcoming.

  621. ry1220

    Every experience i’ve had here has been absolutely great! Even when the lobby is PACKED, I have never waited longer than 10 minutes. The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and the selection of products is great!

  622. Wfburn

    This was my first visit, actually, my first time at a dispensary. I was kindly welcomed and treated with the upmost respect. The interactions between the co-workers was very nice. I could tell there wasn’t any drama there. This helped make me feel relaxed and comfortable. Jeff introduced me to your products and points system. He answered all questions and helped me make my selection. I bought some gummies. The effects of them are great but, the flavor could use some improvement. I felt like I was eating a shot of booze. I’m not a fan of alcohol so the surprise burst of it was a little off putting. That’s why I gave the quality 4 stars. With that being said, I definitely would come back and recommend you to my friends. Thank you!

  623. Bridgitleigh

    Always super easy experience, and fast service. Jot is super helpful, answered all my questions, and I found. Out I had points I didn’t even know existed. Great surprise!

  624. MrVTree

    This place is so chill. I love the atmosphere. I would love a job opportunity if there is one.dY$?PS but fr fr they have top shelf buds

  625. VScissorhands

    Staff is always so helful. There is always a nice variety of strains to choose from. Place is clean and friendly.

  626. klwit307

    My first visit to any dispensary, everyone is helpful and friendly. The wait was less than I expected for a Saturday and Dave was very informative and helpful. Product is great! Worth a little drive.

  627. Mcgillis420

    Best medicine and friendly service. Our family loves this place.

  630. Mybrandnewseedco

    I drive to this place from Lansing. I like going somewhere that has a large, fair priced selection. I like that it does not feel like a trap house. Good welcoming feeling when at Lake Effect.

  631. bhs4no

    Friendly staff. Great selection.

  632. HappyHoppy

    Great people, good product, repeat Customer. But I had to knock off stars because of one large frustration. I have to drive pretty to get there, and there is, understandably, usually a wait. I’d love to be able to preorder but I tend to get a variety of edibles, and the menu here on leafly is incredibly inconsistent when it comes to the Mg’s in the edibles. To me that is a huge factor in what I want order. I have hopes you might fix this in the future.

  633. WilliamEN

    Always help find what i need

  634. davehardisty

    The people were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The products were excellent. I am a novice with poor hearing and My consultant, Pieter H was very helpful and patient.

    Absolutely LOVE Lake Effect! From the moment you walk in the door until the moment you leave this place will make you feel comfortable! They have a good selection and great variety. The staff is very welcoming as well as having great knowledge on what you’re looking for out of the strains. Plus free grams on your birthday plus every time you bring a a new member in! What!? I highly encourage to stop on by and give them a visit!!!

  637. Skuhn0120

    Always amazing service with many smiles! You feel as if you are the only patient they have at the time of service, which makes a very pleasant atmosphere.dY’

    Merry Christmas to the LE staff!

  641. indiepancake

    The waiting room at Lake Effect has a somewhat clinical vibe, but the bud tending room is really nice and not too overwhelming. The employees where knowledgeable and kind, will be returning.

  642. Mapleshouse6

    This was my first visit and it was awesome! The staff is very welcoming and helpful. Thank you John B for making my first visit a good one!

  643. Danielle8673

    Good quality flower! Had a large selection of concentrates and normally has a good selection of edibles. Gave me a free gram with my purchase because it was my first time there. They do make you fill out some paperwork in the beginning but it takes less than five minutes. The staff are knowledgeable about their products and very friendly. Lighting was good and the facility was clean. Products were within reasonable prices. They could have had a few more strains at the lower end of their price range, but even the $10/g quality is high.

  644. bhendrick9

    I’m so glad they were able to stay open. They have been one of the best things to happen to Portage and to me.

  656. Queenbmb0808

    leafly is silly and wouldn’t let me post in all caps so here is my non-caps to meet post requirements

  661. PostvM

    Holy cow! First off guys well done! Not only did I have a great experience. They were spot on with their education of the product. The atmosphere was professional. And was even given superpower advice. Shape-shifter. Would definitely recommend to a friend and will do soon. Would definitely come back again. If anyone is looking for a fun and professional experience. Please stop here!

  662. theboogeyknight

    Very friendly and professional staff welcomes you in the lobby and guides you through the entire process.

  663. kdavis7073

    Have not been here yet. One hour drive. Would make the trip if I knew what was on the menu. Doesnt help to put names without explanations of these strains.
    Hardly ever any sativas. I need to know what im driving an hour for.

  664. hkelly212

    Only my second time going but Luna was very helpful! She took the time to listen to my concerns and then try to fit my budget and products to help my specific complaints.

  665. Fetti74

    great customer service!! Always a great selection of flower!!

  666. rognwaldr

    Great place and great people! The community really needs this dispensary to reopen.

  667. Daviddk420

    I hope you guys will be reopening soon love the place and the people and great selection of meds

  668. GinjaNinja911

  670. Kiywray

    During my last visit.. I was unsure if I would have time to look at products so I made a pre-oder and by the time I got there and checked in my order was ready!!! Love fast service (:

  675. Kerri111

    This is absolutely THEE best dispensary in Michigan! I’ve been to them all and Lake Effect will be the only one I EVER go to. The service is always with a smile, friendly conversation, tons of knowledge about their product! The staff is PHENOMENAL!!!

  676. hmbutts


  677. nugz_24

    Jeff was very knowledgeable and helpful during my first visit to this dispo. In my opinion, prices are too high for what you get. Lansing dispos are much cheaper for the same/even better quality.

  678. ZonedOut23

    Great staff and great selection. I love this place!

  679. Vickymccartey

    This is the most nolagable dispensary. They know everything about the stains how is made everything. The prices are very reasonable. Hope they can stay open.

  680. paigeelayne5

    So, today was my first time actually going into a dispensary, and I was extremely impressed with everything Lake Effect has to offer. My consultant was John B and he was super helpful! He helped me find everything I needed and I’m so impressed with the service and medicine!dY’ I will definitely be back and recommending to others. Thanks for making my first experience great.

  681. Friends4Life

    Thanks to Johnny M, my consultant, he did an excellent job of helping me. The place had a lot of people there, yet they moved right along and gave me excellent care. Answering my questions and helping me in a timely fashion.

  682. _x_ii_x_

    I was pleasantly surprised by Lake Effect. I really like this place and will be coming back for a long time.

  683. slimjay

    was diagnosed with stage 2 adenocarcinoma cancer of the stomach on 4/26, and have to say y’all have went above and beyond all expectations with helping me out with being a little less sick and pain free! the BEST tenders around!

  684. indigo54b

    I really liked this place. The guys that worked here where great. Everyone was super helpful and really nice. They took their time to help me and answered all my questions perfectly. I will definitely be going back.

  687. samuel8

    Some great new buds on the menu. Had the fakushima and highly suggest! Shouts out Jeff

  688. klobert

    John B was excellent: knowledgeable and listened well to make recommendations to suit my needs specifically. Michigan growers will hopefully develop a larger range of ^CBT:THC sativa buds, concentrates and edibles. I am relatively new to paraplegia and neuropathic pain and the medicines I acquired help a lot !

  689. JRanINC

    The best. I don’t know how any other business can compete. Best staff, nice and friendly customers, and great selection of buds. By far my favorite experience ever.

  690. Razgrez11

    Don’t listen to this Guitarded420 moron. The place is honestly great. This guy is just mad he can’t afford the top shelf stuff.

  691. TheGreenFairy419

    As a new card holder, this was the first dispensary I went to and the staff was very helpful and welcoming.

  692. Oysters

    Convenient location & pleasant staff made it a great experience. I’m so happy there is a place in Kalamazoo you can trust to have quality meds.

  693. a4wayne

    Staff are nice, waiting room is too small/at times very congested, prices are way too high for what you get. Wish there was more competition in the area.

  694. calamazeus

    The only problem with buying really great strains for sleep is my favorite thing is chiefin. Just want to add a quick recommend to my Universal props that you add small stop signs to the ends of the driveways, please!

  695. Saraphoenix

    Very nice staff and they keep good hours. The shop was clean and professional.

  696. zbv2423

  702. jgxoxo

    I think they beat out most in the country. Having them 20 mins from Battle Creek has been a life saver.

  704. Higrpa

    Excellent, Ann Arbor feeling with great quality product. Good to have someplace close by.

  705. CaptSpicy420

    Any day that involves a trip to Lake Effect is always a great one.
    Thank you staff for all you do!

  706. MasterofNone

  708. Memesize

  711. LeeDrex

    I had an amazing experience when I walked in. Everyone was very helpful and I walked out beyond satisfied!

  712. Grapewillie

  713. Bmoney5165

    Quick, convenient, great staff, and amazing product.

  723. thejonze

    Awesome product and the staff is friendly and helpful, and those girls there are GORGEOUS! Way to run a business!!

  724. sylkcreations

    Wonderful Shop, Great Staff, Friendly, Helpful. The location isn’t bad, they just need more room. Not much seating in waiting room for handicapped patients which makes it difficult because their usually busy and have long wait times, which is most the time. I can see why because its a great shop! Best way to go is to pre-order.

  725. GoldenEagle

    Back in the day, you’d have to call some guy who calls a guy who lives with his mom and needs to meet you at a Walmart parking lot to give you some decent unknown strain of canabis in a plastic bag…. and now here we are with cartridges, brownies, drinks, hard candies, – of course all of the edibles are vaccumed sealed. They also have about 30 different strains of regular canabis and a nice selection of pre-rolled joints. THC levels from 12-24%.

    This place is so professional as well. Flat screen TVs for the menus, they’ll walk you through the whole process, they have specials and take credit cards. Just crazy. What a time to be alive.

  726. Cjmrnd

    Love this place. Highly recommend

  727. roarylion82

    Awesome place good meds great people

  728. RonBaroni

  735. Dkushlam92

    I love lake effected!!!

  736. OGMOJI

    This is, by far one the best collections in the entire state of Michigan. Some of the flower I have seen go through their doors is exceptional in terms taste, smoke and high (their Jesus OG tested at 29% plus!!!).
    I would highly recommend to anyone. I have been a loyal customer for 4 months now. Thanks for what you guys do!!

  737. James2115

    very nice atmosphere, helped me with ever need and ever questions with no problems. will be going back again.

  738. Betty3067

    Awesome Dispensary!

  739. atdubs

    I love Lake Effect. Grabbed a cannagar not too long ago. The magars are way better, imo. The cannagar smoked a bit fast and didn’t seem as potent. I’ll stick to the magars if I want to splurge in the future.

  740. globinhood

    Drove three hours to check this place out! I have only heard good things and will only say good things about Lake Effect. If you are coming from out of town I would highly recommend calling in an order so you know they will have what you want!

  741. donkeyschlong321345

    Nice little place, first time in staff was great and very accommodating. Being able to put a “to go” order in is also a nice touch keep up good work!!

  742. RodentDemolisher82

    Prices are high, but excellent product.
