Lotus Medical

1444 Wazee St.
Denver, CO 80202


  • Mon-Fri 11 a.m.-7 p.m., Sun-Sat 12-5 p.m.
Lotus Medical feels like an upscale oasis geared toward the older crowd, with a setup not unlike that of a Cherry Hills rec room: Lots of couches and chairs to recline on while viewing ESPN on the high­-def TV hung on one of the exposed­-brick walls. There are also books on cannabis as well as other topics on the bookshelves. Lotus is offering a lifestyle here --­­ and back in 2009, when the shop first opened, it was operated as a medical cannabis lounge that allowed cannabis consumption on site. But that isn't the case anymore, and what was geared toward inviting visitors to hang out now seems like a lot of decoration for people who walk in, buy their meds and leave. The bud bar is at the rear of the shop, with a simple display in glass countertops and a zen-­like emptiness to the gray walls compared with the rest of the cozy shop. A fridge in one corner holds the drinks and cold edibles and Lotus's shatter oil.
