The Ten Best Dispensaries in Denver for Finding Clones

When Amendment 64 passed in 2014, adults in Colorado not only had the right to possess recreational marijuana, we gained the right to grow it. However, growing the potent, stanky cannabis many of us are used to smoking is no easy task for a rookie. Home growers spend years perfecting their lighting, nutrients, feeding schedule and more, but few have the time and bandwidth to breed their own genetics.

Most experienced home growers will tell you that the best way to grow your own is by planting reliable seeds, growing your own clones from a mother plant or finding a trustworthy clone breeder that doesn't have anything to lose from selling you his or her best genetics – but for newbs and those too lazy to build a community, dispensaries provide a convenient place to start your home-growing journey.

To my chagrin, not too many pot shops in Denver sell clones anymore, making them hard to track down even after a Google sesh. Here's a list of dispensaries in Denver that sell the green little guys (in alphabetical order), with more to be added as I find them.

The Clinic
Multiple locations
The Clinic supplies medical patients and potheads with some of the best buds and genetics in Denver, so its clones are worth the search. And you'll have to search: Although the Clinic has five locations across the metro area, they usually only get clones in once a month, and they go fast. If you're looking for a big selection or six of the same strain, you could be disappointed, so do your homework before showing up.

Denver Clone Store
755 South Federal Boulevard
303-993-5653
4571 Ivy Street
303-951-1480
The Denver Clone Store might seem an obvious place to look for clones, but it deserves recognition for its commitment all the same. Because it also sells clones to wholesale growers, the store's selection is tough to beat, and shoppers never have to worry about showing up and finding just a small inventory with only a few plants of the same strain. Clones start at $25 apiece for recreational customers and $12 for patients, but discounts are available for buying six or more.

Karmaceuticals
4 South Santa Fe Drive
303-765-2762
It's a shame this place is medical-only, because Karmaceuticals has been a leading clone provider for more than half a decade now. The south Denver pot shop is one of the most trusted dispensaries in town for pest-free clones with solid genetics. It also has one of the largest selections, with over 100 clones typically in stock for purchase. Getting six or more of the same strain is no problem here, but the menu changes daily, so call ahead – or sign up for a patient request list, and the store will call you.

Kind Love
4380 East Alameda Avenue
303-565-3600
If you're worried about getting clones with subpar genetics and weak roots, Kind Love is your safe haven. A habitual honoree in the Best of Denver, the Glendale dispensary's quality clones can be seen throughout basements in Mile High. Clones start at $20 each for recreational customers and $15 for medical patients, but the inventory on the medical side is much larger.

La Conte's Clone Bar & Dispensary
5194 Washington Street
105 East Seventh Avenue
303-292-2252
Perhaps the most well-known clone provider in the metro area, La Conte is always reliable. Although I've seen varied results at their harvests, La Conte's is sure to have a huge library of indicas, sativas and anything in between. And to the shop's credit, it offers a thirty-day, money-back guarantee on all of its clones; you can also pre-order online to see if it has anything worthwhile.

L'Eagle
380 Quivas Street
303-825-0497
Another favorite when it comes to tasty buds with prime genetics, L'Eagle offers a limited selection of pricier clones on a regular basis. Those looking for $15 plants or wanting to grow six or more at the same time won't have much luck here, but thanks to an e-mail list that updates customers on clone inventory, you'll know which strains L'Eagle has on deck. Always eager to educate, L'Eagle also provides guides to growing cannabis from clones, and the budtenders are more than happy to walk you through the process.

Medicine Man
4750 Nome Street
303-373-0752
1901 South Havana Street, Aurora
303-923-3825
Medicine Man has largely embraced the retail aspect of recreational marijuana, making clone purchases streamlined and more transparent. The inventory isn't huge, but you'll usually find at least twenty of each available clone. They start at $15 each and can be pre-ordered online, but you'll have to call find out what's on the menu.

Nature's Kiss
4332 South Broadway, Englewood
303-484-9327
Nature's Kiss is currently in the process of expanding its medical side (it also serves recreational customers), so its clone selection is pretty sparse at the moment. But the shop says it should be back to normal by the end of the month, and that can't come fast enough for some of us: Nature's Kiss has bred a solid cast of rare strains like Purple Nepal and White Urkle, which you can try growing yourself for a cheap $10 per clone.

Sense of Healing
1005 Federal Boulevard
303-573-4800
Sense of Healing has been selling clones to Denver growers since 2012, and it's built a reputation for relatively healthy clones at fair prices, with plants ranging from $10 to $15. It's also one of the few dispensaries that actually updates the clone section of its online menus, making it much less stressful to shop around. Still, it's best to call ahead to see how much of each the place has in stock.

The Green Solution
Multiple Locations
The Green Solution can hook you up no matter what part of town you're in, since it has ten locations across the metro area and all but one serve recreational customers. The online service is unbeatable: When you pre-order, you'll find updated lists of available strains with information on genetics and effects. Clones start at $15 each, and if you buy five, you'll get the sixth free.
