The Giving Tree is one of the worst cannabis gifting shops in Washington DC. Here is why: 1) Some of the strain names are unfamiliar and cannot be identified on cannabis websites such as leafly.com. Are they new specialty strains or other strains with a new name to make it seem like a brand-new strain? 2) Related to above, The Giving Tree employees write the strain names on luggage ticket cards which are placed sideways in the display shelves so the customer must crane one's head to the side to read it. The Giving Tree tries to fool their customers into buying strains with similar sounding names. Example: recently The Giving Tree was selling a strain called "Northern Lights Haze," which is a sativa strain. But The Giving Tree employees wrote the words "Northern Lights" on the name card on one line and wrote the word "Haze" on the line immediately BELOW, making it difficult to understand that the strain had a three-word name instead of simply "Northern Lights." The Giving Tree employees wanted to fool their customers into thinking that they were selling the more popular indica strain of "Northern Lights" instead. Deceptive. 3) At least one of The Giving Tree employees smokes the merchandise during business hours: do you really want to buy from a stoned seller? 4) The Giving Tree is located on H Street NE in Washington DC, a neighborhood which is plagued by rising rates of violent crime. Look for gifted cannabis in safer neughborhoods of our nation's capital such as Northwest Washington's Adams Morgan or Glover Park.
