A few months back, after we checked out Root Organic in Boulder, several readers urged us to go back and visit Boulder Wellness next door. The herb is better quality and worth the drive up from Denver, they said.
Whereas Root Organic (on the right) takes the more slick, modern approach to its opera ... More >>
Green Cross of Cherry Creek is in an old three-story office building; Green Cross is on the second floor, along with a nail salon that I'm sure at least a few stoners have absentmindedly walked into before getting a whiff of acrylic nail polish instead of skunk.
I say that based on the look of "Not ... More >>
It's not so much that Artisanal Medicinals looks sketchy from the outside. It's...ummm...okay, the place looks sketchy from the outside. It's in a forgotten corner of Denver that you probably only visited back in the day if you were buying paint, having a car repaired or spray painting murals at the ... More >>
The weird shit you find in your attic....
During a recent spelunking mission, I came across an amazing artifact from the '80s: "The Colorado Caper," a full-length Marvel comic starring Spider-Man and the Hulk in an exciting advertorial for the Denver Post and the now-defunct May D&F department stor ... More >>
I flew back to Denver from a holiday trip on New Year's Day. And while my trip was great, I couldn't stop thinking about how I'd left myself absolutely no marijuana back at the house. With little time to spare, I made my way into one of the few shops open in Denver, Verde, and found the best herb I' ... More >>
Bartender Ken Kodys left Colorado on September 3 for the 42Below Cocktail World Cup in New Zealand with one mission... to bring a third title back home. The bartending competition is our craft's version of the Olympics, in which 21 of the world's best bartenders representing six countries (and one a ... More >>
Back in the day, there were fewer greater feelings for a young cannabis user than finding a new connection. Finding that steady hookup of sticky green bud was one you cherished as your friends were picking seeds out of brick. I hadn't thought about that sensation in a while, what with so many MMCs a ...

The changes to Denver Kush Club since our first visit in May 2010 haven't been drastic, but the transition from stoner den with a thrown-together lounge and dispensary to a slick storefront with memorable herb made for a great second first impression.
I've been eyeing the CCF sign on Colfax for years now. It's one of the most prominent MMJ signs on Colfax, while at the same time being relatively modest. Just three big letters on an old neon marquee. I always assumed the sign was probably the best part about the otherwise discount-looking shop.
Natural Remedies is on the fifth floor of a turn-of-the-century building on Market Street above Sonoda's Sushi. The building has a central staircase and the smell of freshly fried tempura wafts all the way up to the fifth floor, generally overpowering the feint smell of cannabis until you get ... More >>
This will be a weekend to remember, though I doubt I'll remember much of it.
The High Times Medical Cannabis Cup is at the Exdo Event Center this weekend. If you have trouble finding it, look for the rising cloud of deliciously fragrant smoke northeast of downtown.
I hadn't heard of Cherry Co. until recently when someone sent me a picture of their OG Kush x Super Silver Haze (called Kizzle) via Facebook.
Apparently the shop, which opened in June, hasn't done much advertising. They don't even have a website up yet.

As Colorado's medical-marijuana industry grows, marijuana dispensaries of all types and sizes are proliferating around the state. Some resemble swanky bars or sterile dentist offices; others feel like a dope dealer's college dorm room. To help keep them all straight, Westword will be offering ... More >>
