Colorado has always been a major tourist state. When marijuana was legalized, the number of tourists visiting Colorado skyrocketed. In 2014 alone, Colorado had 71.3 million visitors who spent nearly $18.6 billion dollars in Colorado. This was a huge boost to Colorado’s tourism industry. A big cause of this drastic increase was the legalization of marijuana and the quest for the best flower.
There are now dispensaries on almost every street corner in Denver to tailor to this high demand for cannabis. With there now being this much competition amongst dispensaries, it has become tough for consumers to decide which dispensaries to visit. Some dispensaries have better edibles than others, while some may have a better concentrate selection. The most sought out cannabis product is definitely the flower. Here are some of the top dispensaries with the best flower selection:
The Kind Room
1881 S. Broadway Denver, Colorado
The Kind Room has been providing their patients and customers with high-quality cannabis since 2007. They were also one of the first dispensaries on “the green mile,” otherwise known as Broadway Street. The Kind Room prides themselves in cultivating the highest quality cannabis possible. With all of their flower being personally hand trimmed, they ensure the love and care that is needed in producing a solid flower. Their wide variety of strains consists of Big Band, Candy Land, ChemDawg x Sour Diesel, Bruce Banner, and much more. I highly recommend trying their Grape 13, which is a hybrid cross between Grape Ape and G-13. If you are more a sativa smoker, then you should definitely try their Trainwreck flower. It is one of my personal favorite strains.
745 E. 6th Ave. Denver, Colorado
Lightshade is one of the biggest dispensaries in Colorado. With over 6 locations, Lightshade has provided their customers with a wide range of high-quality products. They focus on producing a variety of different strains that will allow each customer to find their perfect fit. In fact, the main question they ask their customers is, what’s your mood? They provide their customers with a wide variety of strains so that they can tailor to each customer’s needs.
Lightshade is all about the personal experience of shopping for cannabis. Their strain list consists of some of the best flower like Durban Poison, Sour Joker, Lavender Jones, Blueberry Headband, Kimbo Slice, and even Fruity Pebbles. However, the best flower that stood out the most is their Light of Jah. This is a cross of Jack Herer x a disputed Northern California origin. This sativa dominant strain provides the smoker with a very creative high.
1555 Champa Street Denver, Colorado
Native Roots has nearly 19 different locations. They are becoming one of the leading dispensaries in the industry. It is no surprise that their flower selection is of the highest quality. Their strain list includes Blue Dream, Glass Apple, Griz Kush, Jilly Bean, Maui, and even Mother’s Milk. These are phenomenal strains, but they do have a few that stand out amongst the rest. Their Strawberry Lemonade is a personal favorite of mine. It’s strong citrus smell and taste that truly makes your mouth water. I also highly recommend smoking their East Coast Sour Diesel. It is a very smooth and energetic Sativa that won’t disappoint.
LivWell Enlightened Health
432 S. Broadway Denver, Colorado
LivWell Enlightened Health is one of the largest and fastest growing dispensaries in the industry; with locations spreading over Oregon, Colorado, and even Canada. LivWell is the dispensary at the fore front of the cannabis industry. They are well known for providing the best prices for high quality and consistent product. While their mission is to become the number 1 one-stop-shop in the cannabis industry, they still put all of their focus into the quality of their products, inculding some of the best flower near Denver.
Even though LivWell carries a vast variety of third-party products, they still produce their own flower and concentrate line (#HASH). LivWell is also one of the first to have a flower line for a celebrity, Leafs By Snoop. Snoop Dog’s flower line has strains like Gold Rush, Lemon Pie, Tangerine Man, Cali Kush (Snoop’s favorite), Northern Lights, and even Banana Kush. LivWell also has their own flower strains such as Blackberry x Blueberry, Blurple, Purple Cotton, Zeta Sage, Mob Boss, and even 303 Kush. Their top sellers are Kosher Kush, Trill OG, and Jet Fuel. However, I highly recommend trying their Black Afghani. It’s an underrated Indica dominant strain that will definitely get you high.
While there are many more dispensaries out there that have a quality flower, these five are some of the best that I have come across. The strains that I have pointed out are some of the best strains in the industry. However, every strain affects every person differently. One of the most intriguing things about the cannabis plant is that every human being has their own endocannabinoid system. Everybody’s cannabinoid system is as unique to them as their fingerprint. Meaning, while one strain may give me the most enjoyable high, it may not be the best fit for you. So get out there and start trying them all! Make sure to keep a journal of the strains you like and the ones you don’t. This documentation is what will help you find your most enjoyable strain!
