Colorado's Best Marijuana Dispensaries

Recreational marijuana dispensaries have been popping up all over Colorado since the drug’s legalization. If you’re a tourist in Colorado looking to purchase marijuana, don’t assume all dispensaries are the same. Whether you’re a connoisseur or a casual smoker, you’ll be delighted by these venerable vendors.

Rockies: High Country Healing

Rockies: High Country Healing

High Country Healing has multiple locations throughout Colorado, and its Silverthorne outpost is a great choice for folks heading to Breckenridge, Keystone, or any of the other surrounding resorts. High Country has a huge selection of bud and edibles, with a few ‘luxury’ strains that you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere. High Rockies is relatively expensive, so prepare to pay upwards of $30 per eighth for bottom shelf bud and $60 for top shelf.
High Country Healing, 191 Blue River Pkwy, Silverthorne, CO 80498, (970) 468-7858

Rockies: Aspen Green Dragon

Resort, Cabin

Rockies: Aspen Green Dragon

Green Dragon is Aspen’s premier marijuana dispensary, and though it’s in ritzy Aspen, it isn’t too expensive or chichi. Green Dragon offers unique strains like Chocolope, Blue Cheese, and Dragon Caviar (testing about 45% THC!). It’s also about a 2 minute walk from the Aspen resort itself, so no need to worry about driving there from your cabin. Green Dragon often has promotions, so be sure to ask about a deal when you go in.

Rockies: Rocky Road Remedies - Vail

Rockies: Rocky Road Remedies – Vail

Rocky Road Remedies is conveniently in between Vail and Beaver Creek just off Highway 70. Like High Country, there is a hefty up charge on the bud since it is located in the Rockies, but it is high quality and a little goes a long way. If you’re a hash lover then you’ll be thrilled with Rocky Road’s extensive oil menu, and if you don’t have a rig, they sell disposable, pre-loaded, vape pens.
Rocky Road Remedies – Vail, 40814 Highway 6, Units C -D, Avon, CO 81620, (970) 688-5633

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
