Just off Mint Plaza in downtown San Francisco sits Bloom Room, a compact, full-service dispensary that has been operating since 2013. Bloom Room offers over 15 strains of medicine – all tested by CW Labs – ranging from $25 to $60 per eighth with tax included.
It’s high-end strains like Papaya, Durban Poison and Ambrosia that keep people coming back. The collective also carries a great assortment of edibles. We just had to pick up the Kushy Punch gummy squares to see what all the fuss is about. With over a dozen top quality concentrates, many in retro-style metallic matchboxes, patients benefit from a plethora of services. There’s free massage, free product demos, workshops, reward cards, and giveaways for veterans. Bloom Room also offers free half-eighths of medicine to qualifying low-income patients.
This holiday season, there’s no shortage of cheer. They kick off the season early by handing out free gift bags to patients who show up in costume over Halloween weekend. Right before Thanksgiving, Bloom Room holds a charity drive with patients getting a free pre-roll and lighter for their donations.
The last two holiday seasons, Bloom Room collected several barrels of nonperishable food goods for the San Francisco and Marin Food Banks. This year, they’re teamed up with the San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program to provide toys during the holiday season to kids aged 12 and under who suffered a loss due to fire. Older children will receive gift cards.
Through December, patients will receive a free half-gram sample of high quality meds when they bring in an unwrapped, unused toy. Bloom Room is accepting donations of sports equipment, arts and crafts items, baby care items, toys, iPods, books, and game systems with a game included (please, no toy guns or weapons). The free med samples are amazing and it’s for a good cause, so make sure to bring a toy with you throughout the month of December.
Bloom Room cares for its patients as well as its neighborhood, and they do it all with joy, compassion, and fervor. The holidays will be brighter for many people thanks to the generosity and community of the good folks at the Bloom Room cannabis collective.
