Tokers of the Old-School: Dispensaries Carrying Classic Strains

Commercial marijuana breeders are constantly toying with their plant genetics, looking for a way to get an edge up on the competition as consumer habits evolve. But all these new options can make strain shopping tricky, especially for newcomers and old heads to this state encountering an embarrassment of riches.

Before legalization, weed smokers had to purchase whatever was available where they grew up, giving someone from Illinois or Nebraska a larger affinity for Northern Lights, for example, than someone from the West Coast, who came up on Purple Kush or Jack Herer. And for anyone getting back into cannabis use after taking off for a few decades, such classic strains as AK-47, Flo or Maui Wowie provide a sense of comfort...if they can find them.

A lot of the old, reliable pot strains are available around Denver, but it takes months of store visits and sifting through dispensary menus to find out. To save you the time, here are ten pot shops that carry a boatload of classic buds, from Colombian Gold to Sour Diesel.
