Much of the world stopped in 2020, but Colorado's cannabis community kept on chugging to a record year in sales and activity. That momentum has carried into 2021, and now our pot-loving readers have shared their thoughts on who's leading the charge, voting for their favorite cannabis stores, growers, products and personalities. And voting for them often, since the Best of Denver Readers' Poll allowed readers to vote once a day, and many took advantage of that option to push their candidates...very enthusiastically. Meanwhile, the editors made their own picks in the same categories and many more, which you can see in our Cannabis Culture section.

The results could make this the city's skunkiest year yet, both for the people and for high snobiety. And the Best of Denver 2021 Readers' Choice winners are:
