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

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.

Colorado Weed Prices

Colorado Weed Prices

Posted by CANNASaver on Tuesday, 24 November 2020 in Canna Blog - Latest News

Your Guide to 2021 Colorado Weed Prices  

As of 2020, Colorado is closer to a decade of recreational marijuana being legal than a modern preschooler is to third grade. While it’s been a ride, the laws governing cannabis sales in the state evolve every year. One of the factors that influence these legal changes? The average price of weed in Colorado. 

Colorado weed prices affect how much tax is collected. Legal weed prices also aid in reducing black market activity around cannabis, so long as they are low enough to prevent those selling it from being able to reliably turn a profit. 

That’s why we created this guide – to describe how much weed in Colorado is, how much it differs across the state and why. Let’s dive in.

Creating A Consumer Methodology for Determining The Price Of Weed in Colorado

According to the Colorado Department of Revenue, in October 2020 the average price per pound of flower for growers to dispensaries was ~$1300. 

Put another way, growers on average charge dispensaries the following:

  • $81.25 per ounce

  • $10.15 per ⅛ ounce

  • $2.88 per gram

Once dispensaries have received the flower, the price doubles or triples before reaching the buyer. This is the result of paying employees, renting property, buying equipment, and other business operation expenses. 

In order to create a methodology that captures the consumer-end price, we’ve added 200-300 percent to the AMR price the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division uses for taxation. 

The Result?

Average Price Per Ounce in Colorado for Recreational Consumers: ~ $160 - $240 

Average Price Per 1/8 Ounce in Colorado for Recreational Consumers: ~ $20 - $30

Average Price Per Gram in Colorado for Recreational Consumers: ~ $5.76 - $8.64

We will use these as benchmarks in the analysis below. 

colorado weed prices

Determining Colorado Weed Prices

Prices of cannabis in Colorado vary based on brand, region, current specials, and dozens of other factors.

Built within this is a feedback loop for the state and cannabis producers and dispensaries. 

Once every three months, the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division, known as Colorado MED, uses data from grower to manufacturer (like an edible producer) or seller (such as a dispensary) to determine an Average Market Rate (AMR). The AMR is the basis for taxes and is reviewed based on weight. 

In the chart below, available on the Colorado Department of Revenue website, you can see that growers of marijuana in Colorado, on average, charge ~$1,300 per pound in October 2020. This is up 30 percent from ~$1,000 in October 2019. This is important for later.

colorado-med-average-market-rate-oct-2020

(Pulled from CO DOR 11/25/2020)

Why The Average Market Rate Matters

Roughly speaking, by the time cannabis gets to the consumer the price per pound is double or more than the AMR (average market rate). This is in part because manufacturers and dispensaries have to pay staff, labor, as well as equipment, and licensing. 

The other part? 

Colorado marijuana laws place limits on both recreational consumers and medical marijuana patients.

Consumers can’t easily go out and buy a pound since the law limits recreational to an ounce, or 1/16th of a pound.

In the decades where cannabis was illegal entirely when a police raid created headlines like “$1 Million in Marijuana Confiscated”, it was an average market rate that allowed this headline to make sense. Police would use average street prices to evaluate the worth of a quantity. This applies equally to legal markets.

How Much Is Weed In Colorado? 

As of October 2020, Colorado MED pulls together purchase information from a total of 466 cultivators, 216 product manufacturers, and 416 medical or recreational stores as part of creating the AMR. When retail mark-up is added, our methodology will give us a standard price. 

To remind you, we are using the following as baseline pricing:

  • Average Price Per Ounce for Recreational Consumers: ~ $160 - $240 

  • Average Price Per 1/8 Ounce for Recreational Consumers: ~ $20 - $30

  • Average Price Per Gram for Recreational Consumers: ~ $5.76 - $8.64

Now let’s test these price estimates on some cannabis dispensaries in Colorado: 

Botanico (Denver)

Strain: Crystal Gelato

Prices: $20 per 1/8th, $160 per ounce

Strain: Bazookies

Price: $140 per ounce

Medicine Man (Longmont)

What Is The Average Price Per Gram In Colorado? 

The above pricing samples and our baseline costs tell us a few things about weed prices in Colorado. We estimated the average cost per gram, based on Colorado DOR data, to be between ~$6 to $9. However, from our sample, we can see that the average cost per gram is much more.

The average cost per gram of weed in Colorado is between $10-$15. 

This is likely because, as with most things, weed is cheaper when bought in bulk. 

What Is The Average Price Of An 1/8th In Colorado? 

We estimated based on available data from the state of Colorado the average price per 1/8th would be between $20 and $30 dollars. Botanico was on the lower end of our estimated range at $20 per 1/8th. Medicine Man was $19 per 1/8th or $1 less than the estimated low.

Both Organix and The Lodge dispensaries show up at the higher end of our estimated price range, but only by a little. Both have an average price per 1/8th of $32, or $2 more than our $30 high estimate. 

What Is The Average Price Of An Ounce In Colorado? 

The methodology for estimating Colorado weed prices we established actually overestimated the price per ounce on nearly every count. Our methodology puts the average price per ounce at between $160 and $240. 

Every dispensary fell at or below our benchmark of $160. Again, buying in bulk will always lower the price – with anything from soap to marijuana.
