Number 2: Dram Apothecary 1010 Main Street, Silver Plume

From its website: "DRAM Apothecary was inspired by the idea that the inclusion of bitter herbs into our everyday diet is essential for vibrant health and agreeable digestion." For herbs of the sweet, smoky variety, look elsewhere.

Number 1: The Herbery 819 East 6th Avenue


The herbs at the Herbery consists of plants not intended for smoking; also on hand are pots to put them in, as opposed to pot. The business' owner tells Westword's Roy the Herbery has been around long enough that locals don't confuse it with a dispensary.
