Not to be mistaken for the popular chain of cosmetics shops you might see in shopping malls, Lush the dispensary has made quite the name for itself in its own industry. With a Westword Best of Denver award already to its name, as well as top-ten wins in our 2013 edition of “Best Strains” and “Best Concentrates,” the family-owned pot shop has experienced growers who refined their techniques long before it was legal to do so. Eastern-inspired furniture and decor dominates the shop, but the maroon rugs and stone waterfalls are more relaxing than overwhelming. Expect a strong selection of twelve to fifteen strains on hand when you visit Lush, but don’t expect it to be easy to make a decision. The cuts of Durban Poison and Grape Ape are undeniably delicious, and the Gorilla Glue #4 is not to be taken lightly.
