How to Find the Cheapest Weed Deals from the Best Dispensaries in Colorado

Average marijuana prices in Denver tend to average around $40 to $50 for a quarter ounce and about $140 to $160 for an ounce, but the savvy stoner knows it’s possible to get a much better deal. There are a few tricks to use that can save you both time and money in your search for marijuana savings. Here’s how to find cheap marijuana in Denver, step by step.

Step 1: Know the average marijuana prices.

The first step is to get an idea of average marijuana dispensary prices in your area. You can find information on average marijuana prices by visiting your local dispensaries website or finding their menu on Weedmaps. But menus are not always the actual price as most dispensaries in Colorado offer discounts and other deals to attract and retain there customers.  So If you really want to get an indication as to where weed prices are at the best dispensaries near you browse the categories on CannaSaver to really see what popular dispensary deals are going for. CannaSaver has popular items in categories by themself, like Ounce Specials, Concentrates and First Timer deals for both Recreational and Medical Marijuana.

Step 2: Get Coupons.

The second step is to go to CannaSaver for marijuana coupons. These free printable coupons can save you as much as 50% or more on your marijuana purchases. Check your list of lowest priced dispensaries, then look at the list of the best marijuana dispensaries in Denver on CannaSaver. If you find any matches, click on the store name and you’ll be taken to a page of coupons for that particular dispensary. You can also click on the tab for newest deals which will you all the latest and best deals from many Denver marijuana dispensaries. Just print out the coupons you need, and you’re good to go.

Step 3: Look at dispensary websites for more ways to save.

Once you’ve selected the marijuana dispensary you want to go to, check the dispensary’s website and look for links to promotions, daily specials, or member perks. You might find additional ways to maximize your savings. For instance, many dispensaries offer BOGO deals or 1 penny joints on certain days of the week, and if you couple those deals with a marijuana coupon from CannaSaver, you can rack up substantial savings.

Step 4: More is Less!

It’s true for marijuana just as it’s true for groceries and most other items: the more you buy, the more you save. The only way to get the cheapest marijuana possible is to buy ounces rather than smaller increments. A single gram of marijuana will cost you arounnd $8 to $10, but you can get a whole ounce, which is 28 grams, for as little as $100 if you know where to go and use coupons. That brings the cost down to less than $3.50 per gram. So if you can afford to get an ounce all at once, definitely go for it if you want to get your marijuana as cheap as possible.

 

The best thing about cheap marijuana is that it makes it easier to justify smoking a little more. When you save money on marijuana you can afford to buy more marijuana, which allows you to enjoy getting high without having to be as miserly with your bud. CannaSaver is your number one resource to help you save money on marijuana, so sign up for the CannaSaver newsletter and you’ll never miss out on the best dispensaries deals near you!

Shake Deals Denver

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 02 April 2021 in Canna Blog

My canna-friends, you know how I like to keep you in the know, right? So what do I want you to know about this time? A grand little present known as "shake." If you know, then you know. But for those who think I sound like a stoner stereotype, hear me out: while shake usually gets a bad rap, as the quality of weed is better these days, so is the shake...and there really are some good-quality shake deals in the Denver area that you should know about.

What is Shake?

It can vary in definition from person to person, but shake can be an extremely cost-efficient alternative to whole bud marijuana flower for those who like to consume marijuana in larger quantities or for those who go through their stashes fast.

By definition, marijuana shake describes the small pieces of flower left at the bottom of a storage device. These leftovers come from larger cannabis nugs. Shake typically forms when bumped or “shaken” around during transportation or harvesting. It does tend to dry out fast, so keep that in mind.

Dispensaries tend to sell these leftovers at a lower price than the flower it was shaken from because their effects and potency are often pretty unknown. 

Shake is Definitely Not Trim

Trim is what gets removed from cannabis buds after harvest. Trim often contains much more sugar leaves and stems than shake.

Trim is typically used in making concentrates and not much else.

If smoked on its own, trim will most likely not get you high.

Shake’s Bad Reputation

Shake has been looked down upon in the past as being an inferior quality to actual, intact cannabis flower buds. This often comes with people who probably bought trim thinking it was shake, most likely weak or not having any effect.

Shake that comes from a strain with a larger concentration of trichomes can be just as good as the original bud.

That shake sitting in a dispensary jar, then rolling around in tasty trichomes adds a lot of flavor and potency.

Unfortunately, trichomes are fragile and are not always found in high concentrates. In this case, the quality of this kind of shake may be lower quality than those with larger amounts of trichomes present.

When looking for quality cannabis shake, look for cannabis shake that still has a decent amount of shiny trichomes present.

How You SHOULD Look at Shake

In the past, shake was just a random ratio of leaves, stems, and maybe some buds. I imagine most people think that this gross assortment of marijuana turns anyone off of buying shake. But rejoice, for it is 2021, and recreational/medical weed is the best it's probably ever been! 

Sweet Mary Jane only continues to grow (pun absolutely intended) in potency and availability as the country continues to legalize. This being the case, marijuana shake can only get better as well.

Some dispensaries even use the term “shake” to actually describe popcorn (fully-formed, but small) buds. 

Here are 3 popular ways shake is used:

  • Edibles and tinctures: Use shake with any edible or tincture recipe instead of wasting full buds. You gather cannabinoids from about any form of cannabis. So for edibles, prioritizing quality in the ingredients you’re combining with the shake is more important. This makes edibles or tinctures a great way to use up your lower-quality shake.

  • Pre-rolls/Joints: Using shake for joints is a common practice for dispensaries. Some cannabis consumers will tell you they prefer the mellow and toned-down high that shake provides. Shake joints/pre-rolls are a good solution for those who experience negative effects from high potency buds though this isn’t always the case.

  • Blunts: These XXL joints take a lot of Mary Jane to fill up. Shake is a wonderful solution for the "bluntists" out there. Mix these with premium flower, hash and/or kief for extra mindful delights.

Shoot, I bought shake just the other day during one of my own dispensaries runs. The shake was from a platinum shelf bud at half the cost. Though, do look at it first. Some batches of shake are far better than others.

Some Last Cautions When Buying Shake

  • Buying shake can be a literal mixed bag of different cannabis strains and following high from a particular batch of shake isn't always going to be consistent. Shake also dries out quickly, so you'll want to smoke it fast.

  • Some dispensaries carry cannabis shake in tightly packed jars for weeks. Make sure you check that the shake isn’t too moist. This can make marijuana a perfect breeding ground for mold. No one should smoke mold.

  • Medical marijuana patients should try to steer clear of shake. Medical patients often do require consistent doses and results of quality accurate potency flower. With shake, neither is guaranteed. 

In the end, it's up to your personal cannabis budget and preferences.

Due to its ever-growing popularity, finding consistent deals on premium shake can often be tricky, even in Denver.
