Alternative Medicine on Capitol Hill has free chips, soda and waters for cotton-mouthed patients forced to wait behind people who take way too much time at the bud bar. The bud area is separated from the waiting area, and patients are let in one at a time. The room hums with the sound of the display coolers for refrigerated goods; there's a huge selection of edibles from Cheeba Chews, Mountain High, Mile High Ice Cream, Simply Pure, Julie & Kates, Northshore and a lot of others. If you prefer eating your ganja instead of smoking or vaping, this place is like the King Soopers of edibles. Otherwise, the shop is pretty simple, with a utilitarian gray carpet and simple glass countertops. A huge whiteboard features price breakdowns for all of the strains, waxes, hash, edibles and tinctures, making things easy to figure out. The shop also has cheaper strains sold in bulk starting at the half-­ounce. That means less attention to the buds individually, so don't expect super-­heady connoisseur nugs, but it's the type of well-­grown, outdoor­-quality herb that you'd love to find when you're broke.
