Unless you work for Xcel or one of the handful of other industrial businesses along the railroad tracks in the area, you probably haven't ever set foot in the corner of Denver that L'Eagle calls home ­­ though you've driven past it thousands of times on I-­25. The shop's warehouse­-front location stands out due to the immaculate flower garden out front, where the petunias and sage look good enough to smoke. Purple paint on the walls and high ceilings give a dark, royal feel to the waiting room. In the dispensary itself, the wall underneath a row of windows displays bud test results; every strain has its own clipboard with information on its count of THC, THC­V, CBD and other cannabinoids. According to the budtender, L'Eagle's grower doesn't even smoke cannabis –- but that doesn't mean he's incapable; in fact, he has a master's degree in horticulture. And wait until you see the buds the guy is producing organically: "Chunky" is the best way to describe them; "plump" would be too genteel for everything on display, from the enormous buds of crystal-­coated Sour Diesel to the ripe strawberry-­sized Blue God Bud flowers and tangy Super Lemon Haze. We also dig the house skunk blend, Leagle, with its sweet sage smell out of the bag. Leagle is now a retail dispensary but offers discounts to medical patients Read our full dispensary review of L'Eagle.
