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.
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
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.
Boulder: Boulder Wellness Center
Forget everything you imagined about a weed dispensary, instead imagine an über classy spa-like shop, and you have Boulder Wellness Center. The prices are a bit high — grams are $14 — but with expertly grown strains like Strawberry Cookiez you won’t mind paying a bit more. Boulder Wellness Center sells an number of topicals and transdermal patches as well.
Boulder: Fresh Baked Dispensary
Fresh Baked is a cute little shop with a lot to brag about. Their signature strain, Jack Flash, won the High Times Cannabis Cup Silver medal, and their strain of Train Wreck won the Rooster Classic cannabis competition. The prices may be high at Fresh Baked, but it’s worth it to try world-class bud.
Boulder: The Station
The Station is all about deals and promotions, so check their site before you go in case you need to print out a coupon or get a promo code emailed. The prices at The Station are quite varied — a gram can be anywhere from $12 to $20, depending on the strain. Buying from The Station is a very pleasant experience — behind the wood paneled counters, you’ll find some of the most knowledgeable and friendly budtenders in Colorado.
