Closest Dispensary Deals to Denver Airport (DIA)

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!

Colorado, The 420 Epicenter

When thinking about 420-friendly places, you can’t help automatically think about Colorado. The state, being the first in America to legalize medical and recreational cannabis, is one of the largest cannabis hubs in the country, making it a great place for marijuana tourism and 420 events.

Colorado has been the home base for 420 celebrations and activities since 2014. Every April you’ll find numerous events that cater specifically to the cannabis community. This year, cannabis lovers are forced to celebrate a little differently but you can still expect there to be celebrations all over the state and in Denver. 

In pre-pandemic times, dozens of festivals and major events take place in Denver and all over Colorado. The Mile High 420 Festival is one of the most popular and brings approximately 50,000 people to Civic Center Park. The festival includes vendors, music, and entertainment. Big-name artists like Lil Jon and Jermain Dupri have even made appearances. The festival is gearing up to return in 2022.

420 is not just limited to festivals, there is an endless list of cannabis cantered activities to partake in. Denver and Colorado are home to over 500 types of dispensaries and grow-ops.

What Does 420-Friendly Mean?

Generally, if a place or business is 420-friendly - it means that the person or place is accepting of marijuana users. It’s important to distinguish 420-friendly spots in Colorado from others because there’s still a slight taboo around marijuana consumption, so it’s best to be mindful of the places and people you encounter and the rules surrounding marijuana. 

With progressive marijuana laws continuing to roll out, 420-friendly places are emerging all over the state and country - allowing cannabis users to consume their beloved plant with minimal discretion.

If you are someone with a medical marijuana card, the circumstances are a little different. It’s important to check in with your hotel or accommodation to see if they can provide you with a smoking room or a designated smoking area. 

420-Friendly Accommodations in Colorado

In Colorado, marijuana laws allow hotels and private rental properties such as Airbnbs to individually decide if guests are allowed to consume marijuana on the property. 

Many chain hotels are smoke-free, which means any type of smoking, whether tobacco or marijuana. Additionally, smoking/vaping cannabis is not permitted anywhere smoking is banned.

If you find a smoke-friendly hotel, they can accommodate your smoking needs with designated smoking areas or outdoor amenities such as patios and balconies.

Bud and Breakfasts is another option for those looking for 420-friendly accommodations. These are safe and legal accommodations for travelers who also happen to enjoy marijuana and want to do so openly on their trip. Some 420-friendly bnb’s even offering activities centered around cannabis, such as paint nights or cooking with cannabis classes.

Other accommodations allow you to smoke openly with minimal discretion like 420-friendly hotels. These accommodations allow visitors to consume marijuana openly.

Check out this list for some 420-friendly accommodations in Colorado.

If you want to smoke and be more discreet, it’s recommended to stick to vaping as they produce less odor than smoking from a joint, pipe, or bong.

What 420 Friendly Means

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 15 April 2021 in Canna Blog

You may not realize it, but next week there is a stoner holiday.

On April 20th every year, marijuana lovers around the world gather to celebrate the beautiful, majestic cannabis plant in their favorite ways. 

You may have heard the term used in many different ways, but whether it connotes a time of day, a day of the year, or an entire lifestyle for you, 420 is what binds the cannabis community together. 

The story of the roots of 420 friendliness in the United States, much like many things involving cannabis, is pretty hazy (get it?). However, there are some commonly believed theories that can help us understand what the term 420 means in a historical context. 

If you are not familiar with the term “420” as it is used in the marijuana culture, here’s a look at its origins and its meaning. Before examining the type of 420 friendly services available across America, let’s briefly discuss where the term 420 came from, the history behind it and why it is embedded in America Culture. 

420 friendly meaning

What 420 Means

If you’re passing the pipe of that sweet Mary Jane, 420 is all you’ve got to say to let people know that you partake as well. The term "420" was first associated with marijuana use in 1971 and has been very much used since. 

With marijuana being illegal, consumers had to partake in secret, shop in dark alleys, and speak in code. Though it originally spread as an internal clock for a single group of smokers, the term now refers to the ongoing fight for nationwide legalization and the spread of accessible information within both the medical and recreational communities. 

Today, the term 420 and references to marijuana are all over the social media, games, music, and websites that people are using every day.

Origin Story of 420 

Cannabis is a plant of many names: weed, ganja, marijuana, kush, etc. In today’s legalization of marijuana in Colorado, we can call cannabis whatever we would like without the worry of police interference. But things were not always so rosy. 

In the early 1970s, weed was still highly illegal. The term 420 originated with a group of high school kids at San Rafael High School in California. The group who called themselves “The Waldos” started using 4:20 as the time of day they would meet to go seek out a secret stash they would leave in various places. Rather than announce they were going to get high, they used the code 420. 

The ritual spread, and soon 420 became code for smoking marijuana. Eventually, 420 was converted into 4/20 for calendar purposes, and the day of celebration was born.

What Being 420 Friendly Means 

You will ultimately need to ask the person if they themselves smoke, though it is usually implied that they do if they have this in their profile. 

Since its origins back in the 70s, 420 has stuck as a pretense for cannabis culture. 4:20 is the hour to partake, and April 20th has become the international stoner holiday to celebrate cannabis culture and progress. The term 420 and its usefulness as a discrete codeword lives on today, particularly on different sites. How will you know if your future girlfriend, roommate, or houseguest is down to smoke? Drop a 420 friendly in there. 

The term 420 friendly essentially means that the person smokes marijuana or is open to smoking it. This term can also mean that the person doesn’t smoke themselves, but they are okay with those who do.

420 friendly is seen quite often with advertisements for housemates, tenants, or dating apps. It simply means that the person or place is accepting of people who smoke weed and probably do it themselves. 

In the past, 420 friendly has meant that a business or hotel won’t call the police on you if you spark up. However, given the shaky legal status of pot in the past, the term was only as reliable as the person in charge of wherever you were staying. 

That said, with the rapidly changing weed laws that are currently rocking the country the definition of what is 420 friendly is changing pretty rapidly. Now the possibility of finding places with actual legal policies in place to ensure that you are able to smoke undisturbed.

Why is Colorado Known for Being 420 Friendly? 

People have always used pot to socialize throughout the centuries. With marijuana legalization popping up everywhere, stoners around the country now have lots of options when it comes to herbal socializing (though slowed due to COVID). 

Being the first to blaze the trail, Colorado is well known for being 420 friendly. Colorado was afterall one of the first states to legalize. Safe to assume we have some cannabis consumers in this state. Also, Colorado is slowly unveiling pot coffee shops, smoking lounges, and hotels coming in the future.

Colorado is very 420 friendly.
