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.

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.

Dispensary Prices Vs Street Prices

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 02 January 2021 in Canna Blog

The History of Marijuana Legalization

Marijuana cultivation in The United States dates back to the 1600s. Colonists grew a certain type of hemp known as cannabis.

The American government encouraged settlers to grow hemp at that time. The crop was used to make rope, clothing, and sails.

Up until the Civil War, the domestic growing of hemp flourished. However, after the war, hemp was imported instead.

By the end of the 1800s, marijuana was being used as a medical product. Americans could purchase remedies that contained marijuana in drug stores.

In 1910, after the Mexican Revolution, Mexican immigrants brought recreational marijuana with them when they flooded across the border into the USA.

This gave rise to fear of the drug trade and drug gangs. Anti-drug campaigns warned against a "Marijuana Menace". 

In the 1930s, during the Great Depression, many were unemployed. Fear of and resentment toward Mexican immigrants escalated. Governments and the public were so concerned about the potential problems associated with marijuana that twenty-nine states voted to outlaw marijuana. 

In 1937, Congress passed the Marihuana Tax Act. This act placed a tax on the sale of marijuana. According to the terms of the act possession and sale of marijuana became illegal. Medicinal use of marijuana was legal but there was a very expensive tax on it. Those who grew, imported, distributed, or prescribed marijuana had to pay a tax. Extensive record-keeping was required for the sale of medicinal marijuana. 

Some contend that the act, in effect, criminalized the use of, production of, and sale of marijuana.  Some saw the act as a way to cut the production of hemp that was, by then, being used as a cheaper paper product than pulp.

Others argued that the tax was necessary to curtail the negative effects of marijuana use. They believed that marijuana affected brain function and caused an increase in violence and crime.

Not everyone believed marijuana had harmful effects. The New York Academy of Medicine issued an extensive report dispelling the negatives of marijuana use. Their report said that marijuana did not increase violence or insanity. They also stated that its use did not lead to drug addiction nor did it lead to the use of harder drugs like heroin or cocaine.  

World War II saw a resurgence in the production of hemp. The U.S. Department of Agriculture encouraged farmers to grow hemp. It was used for such military gear as marine cordage and parachutes. The "Hemp for Victory" campaign registered 375,000 acres of hemp fields in the United States. 

By the 1950s, federal laws enforced mandatory sentences for drug-related offenses. However, by the 1960s more lenient attitudes towards marijuana were in place. 

By 1970, Congress had repealed mandatory penalties for drug-related offenses. In 1972, the Shafer Commission determined that personal use of marijuana should be decriminalized.

In 1976, a parent's movement against marijuana led to the 1980s War on Drugs with mandatory drug sentences re-enacted.

By the mid-1990s there was a major shift in public perception of marijuana. In 1996, California passed Proposition 215 allowing for the sale and medical use of marijuana.

Today, thirty states have legalized the medical and/or recreational use of marijuana.

dispensary prices vs street prices

Street Prices

Once known as black market prices, street prices are what you would pay when buying marijuana from someone who is not a licensed dealer. 

Street Quantities and Quality

As expected, there is a wide variation in quality when you purchase marijuana from a street source.

Advantages of Street Purchases

While you need to do your research before purchasing marijuana from a street source, you are not limited in the quantity you purchase. You may also be able to find good deals. In states and countries where marijuana is now legalized, street prices have reportedly dropped to less than half of those of licensed dispensaries. When you buy on the street, there is even some room to haggle over prices.

But when purchasing from a street source, it’s buyer beware. There is no guarantee of quality.

dispensary prices

Factors that Affect Street Purchases

With street prices, it’s a law of supply and demand. Since licensed dispensaries opened, many who bought on the street aren’t doing so anymore. Thus, independent marijuana sellers have been forced to drop their prices.

With street purchases, there is also a wide variation in prices from one location to another.

Dispensary Prices

To run a legal dispensary, vendors must be licensed. There are also strict guidelines about quality and pricing. Buyers pay a sales tax of approximately 15% when they purchase from a dispensary.

In a dispensary, you can expect to pay an average of $9.99 per gram. The street price for a similar amount might be less than $6.40. That’s a saving of over thirty-five cents per gram.

Dispensary Quantities and Quality

Most dispensaries are clean, pleasant places. They often have knowledgeable staff happy to help you choose a product. Many dispensaries also run educational programs.

Advantages of Dispensaries

A CTV News report contends that the legalization of marijuana has driven up prices.

Dispensaries are eager to match the product you purchase to your goals. They encouraged you to ask questions and to learn about their many products. Their aim is to nurture return business.

Factors that Affect Dispensary Costs

  1. Product Type and Quality

The brand of the product may affect its price. Other factors include the amount of THC in the product. Cost may also be determined by how it is produced. Growing and drying processes can affect the quality of the weed.

  1. Supply and Demand

The degree of demand and the amount of marijuana available greatly affects the pricing of marijuana. If the supply is low and/or demand is high, then the cost of marijuana will increase.

dispensary prices and street prices

How Dispensary Prices and Street Prices Regulate Each Other

Street prices can affect the pricing of dispensary marijuana. Street sellers can undercut the prices of legal dispensaries because they do not have the overhead of a store. They also do not have to buy a license and charge sales tax.

Once dispensaries of legal marijuana cropped up, street prices dropped as buyers were lured to dispensaries by guarantees of safety and quality of the product.

Sizes and Prices of Weed

Posted by CANNASaver on Tuesday, 20 April 2021 in Canna Blog

Been a while since you’ve bought any bud? Maybe you’re new to the marijuana world or maybe you’ve been smoking straight concentrates for a while.

Either way, it’s helpful to know exactly what you’re looking for when you head to the dispensary. 

There’s a lot more math involved with buying marijuana than there is with other products. You know exactly how many beers are in a six-pack or eggs are in a carton. You should also know exactly how much weed you’re getting when you purchase. 

bag of weed

Traditionally, weed is measured in terms of ounces.

The most common weights you can purchase weed at are:

·         Gram

·         ⅛ (eighth)

·         ¼ (quarter ounce)

·         ½ (half-ounce)

·         Full ounce

Obviously, how long each will last is completely dependent on how often you smoke. If you don’t smoke very much, it doesn’t make much sense to buy an ounce – regardless of it being a better deal per gram.

Buying in bulk is generally always going to get you the best deal – but it doesn’t matter if the weed goes to waste. Marijuana can even go bad if left unused and stored incorrectly for too long.

While it’s firstly most important to know your smoking habits before purchasing flower, it’s also important to have some general knowledge of the sizes and prices of weed.

Gram – 1g

A gram is generally the smallest amount of flower you can buy. Remember dime bags? Depending on where you’re from and how expensive weed was there, a gram of marijuana typically cost $10. That obviously varied with quality – but the general rule of thumb was that $10 bought you a gram.

 The price has stayed relatively the same since, but it does vary from dispensary to dispensary and strain to strain. Typically you’ll be paying between $6-$20 for a gram – the better quality the flower the higher the price.

A gram will usually pack about a joint or two, depending on how fat you roll them. A dispensary typically offers gram or half-gram pre-rolls – so a gram gets you roughly that.

This is going to be where you’re paying the most for your weed. It is cheap, but from a price-per-gram perspective, it’s the most expensive. It’s not until you start buying in bulk that this becomes apparent.

⅛ Eighth – 3.5g

An eighth is going to be where you see that buying in bulk can save you money. Typically an eighth can cost anywhere from $25-$60, but that can vary based on quality of the bud. Some dispensaries will even sell four-gram eighths to promote purchasing bulkier amounts.

 When comparing a gram vs. an eighth, it will almost always be cheaper to buy an eighth than three and a half individual grams

Typically an eighth will give you about four to seven joints worth of weed – again, dependent completely on how much you pack. Bowl packs depend specifically on size of the bowl and how full you pack those as well. 

An eighth is good for those who smoke a little bit more than occasionally, but still not too often. How long it lasts depends entirely on you – but it’s safe to say that if you smoke more often, then bigger quantities are for you. 

price of weed

¼ Quarter – 7g

A quarter-ounce is for people who smoke more often. At seven grams, it’s double the size of an eighth, but not double the price. It’s cheaper to buy one quarter than two separate eighths.  

Typically you’ll get about twelve to sixteen joints out of a quarter – dependent on you again. A quarter is usually going to run you somewhere between $40-$80 but can be cheaper or more expensive depending on the quality of the bud.

A quarter is good for frequent smokers, as it lasts twice as long as an eighth and has a good price point. It’s a good point between a small purchase and a larger, bulkier purchase.

½ Half-Ounce – 14g

Also known as half a zip, a half-ounce is a more serious purchase than the others. This is for a pretty serious smoker. Weighing in at fourteen grams, a half-ounce is for those who don’t want to be running out any time soon.

You’ll get – obviously – double the amount of weed you get from a quarter. So, think somewhere around two dozen joints in a half-ounce. It’ll cost you a bit more money, but this is really where buying in bulk saves in the long run.

Generally, a half-ounce will cost somewhere between $100-$120, much cheaper than buying two quarters or four eighths. Obviously, prices can get much higher or lower depending on quality.

ounce of weed

Full Ounce – 28g

In most legal states, this is the largest amount of weed you can buy at any one time. An ounce is for the serious smoker, who doesn’t miss a day and doesn’t like being low.

For a general idea on size, it’s the legal limit a person can own in Colorado. This is because of the amount – an ounce is large enough that any bigger and people will think you have intent to distribute.

An ounce is a full 28 grams – should give you somewhere near 100 joints. Depends entirely on the quality of the weed, but the price range is generally somewhere between $150-$220. Look for prices even higher than that when dealing with high-quality stuff.

Quarter-Pound – 112g

The quarter-pound is a pretty rare size of marijuana. Four times the amount of an ounce, it’s still illegal to have this much weed on your person in Colorado.

 It’s hard to find anywhere to pick up a quarter-pound – but if you do, it’s going to be expensive. A quarter-pound is going to cost you somewhere around $800, but can easily be more or less depending on where you’re getting it from.

This amount of for a very serious smoker – and even then, it will take a while to go through.

Now that we’ve taken care of sizes and you know what you’re looking for, head into the dispensary and buy the perfect size for you. Check out our homepage first to make sure you’re not missing out on any killer deals.
