The buds at Boulder Botanics make the hassles of Front Range travel all worthwhile. The shop is tucked into a 1950s-era (and appropriately green-painted) strip center that has been nearly eaten up by the Best Buy and mega-mall across the street. Blink, and you'll miss the driveway turnoff on 30th and have to circle the block and get filtered back into bumper-to-bumper traffic. (We've learned that lesson so you don't have to, friends.) The outside of Boulder Botanics might look dated -- kinda like a 1950s Buick -- but the inside offers a clean, modern retail space. Couches and an unused patient lounge take up most of the room, and live plants (not of the cannabis variety) take up corners here and there next to works by local artists. Based on the quality of the herb that Boulder Botanics carries for its medical patients, recreational patients should be pleased with what the shop has to offer, as well.
