Dear Stoner: What dispensaries carry CBD strains? It’s hard to find good CBD strains out there.
Dear Cindy: I can confidently tell you that most Denver-area dispensaries carry CBD-heavy products, if not CBD-heavy strains, too. Any chain — the Green Solution, LivWell, Native Roots, Green Dragon — typically has at least one in-house CBD strain, and so do plenty of wholesale growers and mom-and-pop dispensaries. However, the ratios of CBD and THC can fluctuate from strain to strain, ranging anywhere from 1:1 to 20:1. If you want something specific, it’s best to look at online dispensary menus from Jane, Leafly and Weedmaps, or call ahead. (Note: If you take your chances on a pot shop that doesn’t update its inventory, you could end up driving around town on a wild goose chase.)
Some of my favorite shops that carry CBD strains are L’eagle (Cannatonic), Kind Love (Spectrum #12), House of Dankness (CBD OX) and the Clinic (Pre-’98 Bubba Kush), but that’s just a sliver of the vast selection of CBD strains, edibles and concentrates in this city. Start with dispensaries you’re familiar with; if they don’t have what you’re looking for, don’t be afraid to ask your budtender what other shops might.
