Platte Valley Dispensary

Ever had fun in Denver? Ever had fun in Denver on weed? Platte Valley Dispensary is located just up the street from the Denver Aquarium and Elitch Gardens and right between Sports Authority Field and the Pepsi Center, making it a great stop before or after a day of fun in the heart of the city. The upstairs dispensary is made up of slim hallways and converted offices, but the shop is laid out well, and unless the traffic gets pushy, you should have enough space in the waiting room and while you're checking out products. Although there are two bud rooms now (the old Wax Room banner still hangs on the recreational side), the simple feel-good vibe for which the shop is known remains. You can typically find around twenty strains on hand, all grown by Platte Valley, and concentrates made by a variety of local hash-­makers. Head in on Wednesday for buy-­one-­get-­one-half-­off deals on wax.
