Denver originally got the nickname the Mile High City for the altitude, but these days, this city is known mainly for its stony weed. If you’re traveling to Denver for the marijuana, you’re in for a treat. There are lots of 420 activities and unique marijuana delicacies to please any marijuana tourist visiting Colorado so you might as well get started as quickly as possible. I know whenever I fly back home to Denver I’m ready to spark up a bowl or a blunt the moment the plane touches down on the tarmac, but alas, the airline crews tend to frown on that so I have to content myself with dreaming of the buds I will soon buy from one of the closest dispensaries near the Denver airport that offers deals on Cannasaver. You would think half the plane passengers were stoned already, the way they move so slowly getting down their carry-on bags. Surely you people are as eager to get stoned as I am, I think. Hurry up! Even after eventually making it off the airplane, there is still a tram ride, several escalators, and a long, long walk through the DIA terminal before you finally make it out of the airport. At this point, you’ll probably be extremely anxious to get to the nearest dispensary to DIA with all haste, but go ahead and take a little detour through the baggage claim to check out the freaky mural--you can contemplate the deeper meanings of the screaming children and the gas masks after you get your high on.
While your buddies are still goggling over the strange art, take a second to Google search for dispensaries near me or dispensaries near DIA. You will find several dispensaries near the Denver International Airport to choose from including Golden Meds, Doc's Apothecary, and Medicine Man Denver. One of the best for visitors and marijuana tourists is definitely High West Cannabis. Located at 10625 E. 51st Ave. in Denver, High West Cannabis is a full-service medical and recreational dispensary that will hook you up with some Colorado buds after just a short drive from the Denver airport. They’re just minutes off I-70 so it won’t take long to get there. If you have a friend with you, have them go ahead and get the blunt wrappers and snacks at the ready so you won’t have to waste anymore time than you have to being in Colorado without being high. High West Cannabis wants to get you high so much that they even have an out-of-state tourist special that they won’t give to locals. If you show them an out-of-state id card, they’ll let you choose an ounce of top shelf flower for only $99. As a Denver local, I don’t really think that’s quite fair to give you travelers a better deal than me, but whatever!
Once you get high and get settled into your hotel (hopefully a 420 friendly hotel!), you’ll feel relaxed and ready to experience all the Mile High City has to offer. Mostly, it has a lot of weed to offer. And tacos. So load up on the herbs, gorge yourself on as many tacos as you can eat, and enjoy it all while you can. Before you head back to the airport, stop by High West Cannabis for one last hurrah. Sure, you’ll have to smoke whatever you buy before you embark on your journey to DIA and back home, but you’ll be left with fond memories of Denver. Besides, there are always edibles! Get yourself one of those THC infused treats and gobble it down before you go through security. You’ll be feeling a mile high all the way back home!
