High Level Health

970 Lincoln St.
Denver, CO 80203
Both branches of High Level Health (the other is on East Colfax) are almost identical ­­ mirror images of each other in the way the small storefront space has been laid out. The decor in both is no-­frills industrial, with corrugated tin covering the half wall between the waiting room/receptionist area and the bud bar, exposed HVAC vents, and bare, brown­-stained concrete floors. The shops are also notable for founder Jim Rice, who was featured on the reality­-TV game show Survivor in 2011. He didn't win the game, but he was one of the more talked­-about contestants, not only for his intense playing style, but also for his unusual career. Both stores get a lot of walk­-in traffic due to their settings on pedestrian­-heavy streets. The hash selection is decent, with BHO by the gram and well-­made, waxy ice-water hash. The pricing on THC-­infused foods tends to be on the lower end compared with other dispensaries, although selection isn't the greatest. The staff is always nice, the place is clean and doesn't feel sketchy, and there's a cap for medical-­patient pricing. Read our full dispensary review of High Level Health.
