The Health Center is a tiny recreational and medical marijuana center in a tiny house on a tiny block in the Uptown neighborhood. What isn't little, though, was the selection of unique strains more than worth taking home. The little Victorian home-turned-MMC is hard to miss, since it stands alone on a block with an empty lot next to it. Inside, what was either a mud room or the kitchen has been turned into the small patient intake area. There's really not much to the space other than the purple walls and window into the receptionist area, but take a second to check out the old pictures of the building hanging in a frame on the wall near the door. At one time, it looked more like a crack house than the oversized dollhouse it resembles today. The inside of the house is as small as you would expect it to be -- probably not more than 900 square feet in total. But it's a very swank 900 square feet. Dark wood floors contrast well with the stark-white window trim and baseboards, as well as the Colorado flag-blue paint on the walls, while the huge (for the building) windows let in loads of natural light. The shop is also decorated well and avoids any claustrophobic cluttering by keeping the antique furniture and decorations minimal, simple and (appropriately) small. Very clean and professional. The seating area for the patient waiting room is built into the large bay-window kitchen, with a small coffee table stacked with magazines as well as a book containing information on the strains the center carries, plus a price breakdown for members and non-members. The concentrates are worth checking out, too -- the Health Center won the 2014 710 Cup.
