Can all products be ordered online?

We do our best to keep our online inventory current. But because our menu changes daily as we receive fresh product and and sell through our inventory, it is not always completely accurate. Feel free to call us, or stop in for the latest availability.

What happens after I place my order?

Once we receive your order, one of our budtenders will prepare and package it so it’s ready to pick up when you arrive. We will send you a text message when your order is ready to pickup or if our inventory has changed and something is no longer available.

Can someone help guide me to the right products for my needs?

For sure! Our budtenders are highly trained and enthusiastic guides to understanding cannabis and the many different functional benefits our products can provide for you. Just stop in and ask.  For online orders, check out the Info section on our website for a great tutorial on cannabis product types, strains, functional and efficacy information and more.

How do I know how much my online order will cost?

Your order total is calculated during online checkout.

How do I pay for an online order?

As of June, 2021, per the MED, online payments are no longer permitted. You pay when you pick up your order, as you would with any cannabis purchase, with cash or a debit card with a PIN number. All of our locations have in-store ATMs available if you need one.

Can I change my online order at pickup?

Yes. When our budtender reviews your order with you, you can ask them to add items to your order. Please note: this may add to your wait time.

Do you deliver?

State regulations restrict us from providing delivery services. Should that rule change, we will explore the best options for supplying our customers with their orders!

Can I pick up on another day?

Unfortunately, no. To keep our inventory fresh, we cancel all uncollected orders at the end of the business day. So long as you show up before we close you are good to go.

Do you offer curbside pickup?

As of June, 2021, per the MED, all transactions must be completed inside a dispensary’s restricted access area.

Can someone else pick up my order for me?

Sorry, but no. You are not allowed to purchase product for someone else, regardless of age.

Buying Cannabis

How much marijuana can I buy in Colorado?

As a recreational customer, you can purchase up to one ounce of flower or its equivalent of cannabis per day. There are 28 grams of flower in an ounce and the most common amount you have probably heard someone mention – an “eighth” – is 3.5 grams, or one eighth of an ounce.

  • 1 gram of concentrate (wax, shatter, live resin, etc) = 1 eighth of flower. 8 grams of concentrate = 1 ounce of flower.  
  • 100mg of infused products (edibles, tinctures, etc) = 1 eighth of flower. 800mg of infused products = 1 ounce of flower.

As a medical customer, patients can purchase up to 2 ounces of cannabis or its equivalent at a time. 

  • 40 grams of concentrate = 2 ounces of medical flower.  
  • 20,000mg of infused products (edibles, tinctures, etc.) = 2 ounces of medical flower
Can I buy marijuana if I am from out of state?

For sure. As long as you’re 21 or older! Just bring a valid, current Photo ID (driver’s license, passport, government issued ID card. Customers from out of the United States need to use your passport. Please note that it is illegal to transport cannabis outside of Colorado.

What is the difference between Recreational vs. Medical Marijuana products?

Medical cannabis products cost less because they are taxed at a much lower rate than recreational marijuana products. Some of our medical infused products also carry higher potencies, but the quality of cannabis is the same for all products. And, customers with a valid medical marijuana card can also legally purchase higher quantities in a single day.

Do you accept credit cards?

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept credit cards at this time due to government regulations. But we can do cash or debit with PIN transactions. And each location has an onsite ATM machine for your convenience.

Can I return or exchange marijuana products?

We can only accept returns defective or damaged products, including any products that are broken, leaking, cracked, or otherwise unusable due to factors not caused by the customer. Bring in the product and sales receipt to the location where you bought it within three days of purchase. Medicated product returns can be credited toward new purchases (certain restrictions may apply), or they can be exchanged for the same product. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide refunds or exchanges on purchases.

If I buy marijuana will my name end up on a government list?

Despite the ID checking that occurs in dispensaries, the law entitles recreational customers to anonymity when purchasing legal cannabis. If we scan your ID as you enter our dispensary, it is only to verify that it is a valid driver’s license and no data is saved by doing so. Regulations are in flux currently for medical patients, but we actively protect all customer data. If you opt into our email or newsletter, we will at times mail you exclusive promotions and info on product availability, but will never share your information.

What forms of ID do you accept?

For recreational product you need a valid, unexpired form of ID that shows your birth date. We will accept digital IDs on your phone as long as it’s through a state registered app (not just a screenshot). Customers visiting from outside the US will need to provide their passport. For medical dispensary products you must have a valid Colorado state medical card. Out-of-state medical cards are not accepted.

Can I use my new medical application paperwork?

New Colorado medical patients can shop for up to 35 days with their new application and a valid form of ID. Patients who recently renewed their medical card must wait for the new card to come in the mail before shopping. If your old medical card is still valid, you may shop with that until you receive the new one or until the old one expires.

Consuming Cannabis

Where can I consume cannabis?

You can consume cannabis legally on private property. Note: vehicles do not constitute private property. You can also consume cannabis legally at any retail marijuana hospitality business, as long as you are in a designated consumption area.

Can I smoke in or near the store?

It is illegal to consume marijuana or marijuana-infused products publicly in the state of Colorado, or at any location that is accessible to the public. As the law currently stands, cannabis can only be consumed on private property or in the consumption area of a retail marijuana hospitality business.

What do I do if my pet ingests marijuana?

We recommend you get to a veterinarian as soon as possible. If you’re able to act within 30 minutes of the time of ingestion, the vet may induce vomiting to remove as much of the material as possible before absorption. This greatly reduces the potential for a harmful reaction. Owners should not attempt to make dogs vomit, since complications such as choking and aspiration could occur. With appropriate intervention by a veterinarian, cannabis toxicity is almost never fatal and long-term side effects are extremely rare.

What is a standard dosage of THC?

Dosage is completely dependent on the individual. Tolerance level, metabolism, environment, the type of product, and other factors all impact what constitutes a “standard” dose of THC. For edibles, a standard dose for recreational customers as defined by Colorado law is 10mg THC. With all forms of cannabis, we highly encourage you to follow the “start low, go slow” rule, especially with new product you are unfamiliar with.

I’m going skiing, can I smoke?

Unfortunately, cannabis can only be legally consumed on private property or in a retail marijuana hospitality business. The right to possess or consume marijuana and marijuana-infused products does not apply to federal lands within the state of Colorado, including national parks, national forests, national monuments, and any other federal property. Please be aware that many ski areas are located on federal land.

Are there any long-term health risks associated with cannabis use?

Long-term cannabis use can have several health risks, including respiratory issues from smoking, cognitive impairment, and mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, or psychosis in predisposed individuals. Chronic use can also affect memory, learning, and attention.

How does cannabis use affect mental health?

While cannabis can have therapeutic effects for some mental health conditions, it can also exacerbate or trigger mental health issues in others. High-THC strains, in particular, may increase the risk of anxiety, paranoia, and even psychosis, especially in individuals with a predisposition to these conditions.

What should I do if I experience adverse effects from cannabis use?

If you experience adverse effects from cannabis use, it is important to stay calm and find a safe environment. Hydrate and rest until the effects diminish. For severe reactions, seek medical attention immediately. Reducing dosage or switching to a different strain with lower THC content can also help minimize adverse effects in the future.

Can cannabis interact with other medications?

Yes, cannabis can interact with certain medications, potentially altering their effectiveness or increasing side effects. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider before using cannabis if you are on prescription medications or have underlying health conditions.

Is cannabis safe to use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?

Cannabis use is not recommended during pregnancy or while breastfeeding due to potential risks to the developing fetus or infant. Exposure to cannabis can affect brain development and result in long-term cognitive and behavioral issues.
