Best dispensary in San Diego hands down... Probably the best dispensary ever.

This place is the bomb! Excellent deals and have an awesome staff! My dude Brandon helped me out today and was extremely knowledgeable on everything in the store.

Joe Pathuis

New deals but still good. Every day they have 50% off deals, as well as 30% off deals. I literally don’t really go anywhere else besides EMBR even though it’s far from me because of the great deals and the tax in included in the price so you don’t have an added 20%-25% Added to your bill. The staff is very friendly as well and they take their time to educate you and show you all the possibilities that they have for deals as well as quality so don’t go there if you’re in a hurry

Absolutely love this place! Beautiful setup and displays. Good, honest prices and they always have amazing deals! Professional and knowledgeable staff that treats you like family! Shout out to Peter the Plug, thanks for your excellent customer service. Just look at how awesome their bags are and how meticulously my products were packed! Even the security are super friendly and welcoming. No reason to go anywhere else!

Both times I've been there they've been very friendly and helpful. Last time Brandon showed me a better deal than what I've been planning to get. Especially like the fact that the price is the price. I've been to a lot of places where you buy something for $45, go up to the register and it's 60 bucks. I'm not a math genius but I know 45 is not 60!
