Best Dispensary in Denver

Best Dispensary in Denver

Posted by CANNASaver on Sunday, 15 November 2020 in Canna Blog

When people think of Denver, there are a few things that come to mind – snow, skiing/snowboarding, marijuana, the Rocky Mountains, cowboys, hippies, marijuana, high altitude, South Park, and...did we mention marijuana?

Yes, Denver is where it all became legalized, so it’s hard not to think of cannabis when you think of the Mile High City. Especially with how many dispensaries there are in the Denver area now, with over 500 retail/recreational dispensaries and over 400 licensed medical marijuana stores. That’s enough to make your head spin (and not in the good way you're thinking). Luckily, to save you some time and headache, we’ve put together our list of the best dispensaries in Denver. 

This list is in order of Google star reviews, but that doesn’t always do a store justice. We’ll let you decide which of these is actually the best dispensary in Denver, but chances are you won’t be disappointed – no matter which store you end up choosing (no, really, these are some of our featured stores). To make the list even better, we’ve included some deals you can use at each of the dispensaries. 

Mile High Green Cross Best Dispensary in Denver

Mile High Green Cross

(Recreational)

Cannapages Info: Mile High Green Cross

Google reviews: 4.0 (143 reviews)

Deals: CANNASaver coupons

Hours of Operation: Monday through Saturday, 10:00 am – 6:45 pm; Sunday, 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Website: Mile High Green Cross

Social : Mile High Green Cross Facebook | Mile High Green Cross Instagram

Don’t be detoured by the reviews, there are only a few negative ones that bring this score down. Mile High Green Cross is known for having a very (friendly) “local” feel, located on one of the coolest streets in Denver, and by owning their own local grows. They cultivate their cannabis out of Salida, Colorado, through their Horticulture and Extraction facility called Pure Greens. The price point is more than fair since they are the wholesaler. It’s most definitely worth a visit.

Chronic Therapy Best Dispensary in Denver

Chronic Therapy

(Recreational, Discounts for Medical)

Cannapages Info: Chronic Therapy

Google reviews: 4.2 (399 reviews)

Deals: CANNASaver coupons

Hours of Operation: Monday through Sunday, 10:00 am – 7:00 pm

Website: Chronic Therapy

Social : Chronic Therapy Facebook | Chronic Therapy Instagram | Chronic Therapy Twitter

Again, don’t be fooled by the small number of negative reviews that bring the score down to 4.2. The common denominator here is that Chronic Therapy is friendly, fast (but you don’t feel rushed), knowledgeable, but they don’t rub it in your face. They’re willing to listen to your needs and wants and cater to that. The other great thing about Chronic Therapy is that they own their very own, state-of-the-art, organic grow facility right next to their dispensary in Wheat Ridge (just on the outskirts of Denver).

The Stone Best Dispensary in Denver

The Stone

(Recreational)

Cannapages Info: The Stone

Google reviews: 4.2 (1,339 reviews)

Deals: CANNASaver coupons

Hours of Operation: Monday through Sunday, 10:00 am – 10:00 pm

Website: The Stone

Social : The Stone Instagram

It’s unfortunate that there have been some low reviews that have knocked their overall score because we know The Stone quite well. The Stone prides itself on being an inviting, safe, relaxing environment. The quality of cannabis that they carry and sell is well up to, if not above, Colorado’s standards. The other positive about this dispensary is the number of deals they carry. There are so many options for coupons to The Stone, you’ll definitely find something for the right price here.

LaConte's Best Dispensary in Denver

LaConte’s is known for carrying a wide variety of Colorado brands and products. If you’re looking to grow your own marijuana, they’re known for that, too – their famous clone bar. All clones are backed with a 30-day guarantee and feature their very own, in-house genetics. You can’t go wrong with your choice here, no matter which location you end up choosing.

The Chronic Factory

Deals: CANNASaver coupons

Hours of Operation: Monday through Friday, 9:00 am – 9:00 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am – 4:00 pm; Sunday, closed

Website: The Chronic Factory

Social: The Chronic Factory Facebook

The Chronic Factory is very family-like, in that they have a very “homey” feel with the store and staff. They’re very personable and friendly, and most of their customers are regulars, so they’re greeted by their first name. That doesn’t take away from their professionalism, however, as they are just as friendly and helpful to those they aren’t familiar with. The Chronic Factory carries quality flower, distillate, edibles, and other products, all for a great price. If you have a medical card, we recommend you try them out for yourself.

The Doc’s Apothecary, also known as just Doc’s Apothecary, has two locations – the Globeville/Denver one being only medical, but the other dispensary serving both recreational and medical. Doc’s Apothecary has a unique story and feel to it, being owned and operated by a local, Colorado medical doctor. Both stores offer a boutique-like layout, which makes it an approachable and warm experience for all visitors. Their product is top shelf grade for reasonable prices, and their rewards/loyalty programs are very competitive. The quality of service and product here is never a question.

What is Live Resin?

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 28 July 2021 in Canna Blog

Oh, marijuana concentrates, how potent ye be. With dabbing culture rising with every legal state, these products tend to match the sales numbers of marijuana flower neck and neck. From wax to shatter, dab-o-holics have a grand variety of products to choose from. So pure. So, 710.

Whether you're just beginning your adventure into THC concentrates or a captain among canna-connoisseurs; live resin is truly a treat that shouldn’t be overlooked. Don't worry, by the end of this, you’ll be drooling for some of this juicy honey. 

Before I get too far ahead of myself, let’s look at what live resin really is.

live resin closeup

What is Live Resin?

Live resin is actually one of the “newer” forms of concentrate; being made originally around 2012. The concentrate also tends to be pretty dang potent. 

It is extracted from plant matter which is quickly chopped then frozen after being harvested. The freezing process preserves as many of the plant’s natural cannabinoids/terpenes as absolutely possible. Live resin contains a much larger cannabinoid/terpene content than cannabis concentrates such as wax or shatter.

The live resin maintains the original aromas and flavors of the harvested plant.

Live resin gets its name as many other concentrates do; by their consistencies and textures. Live resin ranges somewhere between sauce and wax in terms of consistency. A resin if you will. It tends to range from light gold to dark gold in color.

How Is Live Resin Made?

As mentioned before, live resin begins with freshly chopped Mary Jane then flash-freezing the plant materials. Freezing is achieved through a slow dip into liquid nitrogen or by dry ice. This is much like a marinating process with meat. Brings out all the flavor. Flash freezing marijuana ensures that the trichomes, cannabinoids, and terpenes are sealed with satisfaction. 

Much like other concentrates, Live resin plant matter passes through a solvent and is then vaporized out of the final live resin product. Live resin production is a delicate process where professionals in a lab (science, right?) use a specific kind of BHO technique. The final live resin product is purged at lower temperatures than other concentrates which helps make them cleaner to hit.

Live Resin Vs. The Other Concentrates

Like with live rosin, live sauce, live batter, live resin contains the word “live” in the title based on these particular concentrates having frozen cannabis plants as the main component. 

Live resin uses butane during the extraction process which makes it not solventless. Whereas, something like live rosin is solventless due to using heat and pressure to remove shiny trichomes.

Live resin starts with fresh marijuana straight out of the gates and into the freezer. Whereas, something like a sauce may have cured flower or fresh cannabis matter. This sometimes means sauce lacks the higher levels of tasty terpenes found in live resin products. 

How To Enjoy The Nectar of Gods

Get Your Dab On

Most canna-consumer prefer dabbing live resin. You will most likely want a rig or dab straw.

Vape it, Yo

Another popular way of enjoying concentrates is vaping. You can add live resin to your vape pen. You’ll want to keep your temperatures low between 300-400 degrees Fahrenheit for maximum taste.

Potent Bowl Toppers

Hey, when all else fails or you just want a great way to spice up your joint or bong, sprinkle some live resin in your jay or bowl.
