A Cut Above has been in the heart of "Broadsterdam" for years now, but somehow, it's not like the other bargain shops nearby. Part of the reason is that the center is set back off the street in the rear corner of a pot-heavy shopping center; there are two other dispensaries within spitting distance. But it really has more to do with the quality of the buds on the shelf. ACA is in what seems to be a former auto-repair warehouse -- and there are a few hints of its former life, including the garage bay doors out front and the industrial, exposed wooden beams supporting the old building. The space is huge, and the staff has done a good job of making the most of it. After being buzzed through from the cookie-stocked foyer, customers walk into a general area of the patient lounge stocked with magazines. Just beyond the receptionist desk, a rack of clothes takes up another chunk of space, and the lengthy, handcrafted bud bar occupies a large portion of the room. It's all very clean, very young, and completely non-
clinical. First-time customers get treated like members, which allows access to private-reserve buds like the incredibly frosty and chunky Las Vegas Bubba Kush and the mind-bending, crystal-coated buds of in-house cross Underdawg. These are the types of buds
that make signing the shop up as your primary center worthwhile, since ACA sells to members at reasonable prices. Aside from a few staples, a majority of ACA's selection comes from either Colorado's New House Seeds or ACA's own crosses, which have produced some awesome results.
