Guide to the Cannabis Scene in Denver

Denver is the Amsterdam of the U.S. But instead of a policy of tolerance, Denver has formally legalized cannabis, and is the only state that has access to use the entire plant. Denver is at the forefront of all advances in marijuana. It’s also the birthplace of marijuana massages, 420 cooking classes, weed-friendly ski trips and, of course, upscale chocolates and cupcakes.

Below is a breakdown of where to shop, where to partake and what to purchase.

Where to partake

Let’s start with where to partake. There is only one legal coffee shop in Denver for consuming marijuana, but there are many private lounges that exist in a grey area and typically require a membership.

This March, the world’s first licensed cannabis consumption coffee shop, The Coffee Joint, opened in Denver. It’s a humble, super knowledgeable and friendly outfit. Vaping, edibles and dabbing are permitted with your own devices or a purchasable one, and there are samples of tinctures, oils and rubs. Coffee and tea are served gratis, but the space will soon evolve into a full-on espresso bar.

Tetra Private Lounge and Garden is one of a few members-only clubs where guests can use an electric dab bar, vaporizers and other consumption accessories.

The International Church of Cannabis features a serious congregation of ” elevationists ” who light up once a week on Friday. The spot also has educational talks, live entertainment and potluck dinners.

Spectra Art Space is a South Broadway art gallery, but it also hosts 420-friendly parties and allows BYOC consumption in its private backyard during events.

iBake Denver is a private cannabis lounge. Membership is $12 monthly, and it’s BYOC.

Where to shop

Native Roots

Native Roots has over 20 marijuana dispensaries. It’s one of the oldest and most respected spots in town. The staff is well-informed and may assume a mid-level knowledge of cannabis from the consumer.


BGood MMJ practices natural growth with a community and philanthropic focus. Their service is kind and helpful, and the store has no seedy vibes.


Euflora is a high-tech spot with five locations. The staff is geeky in the best possible way.

Seed & Smith Cannabis

Seed & Smith Cannabis is a luxury boutique where you can see the “grow” in a large glass window. Friendly staff can provide you with every part of the plant you need.

What to buy

The world of cannabis is pretty complex, but it’s most easily divided into CBD and THC. (CBD is exploding right now because of its applications for pain management, anxiety and inflammation.) Both CBD and THC can be distributed as hash oils, concentrates, flowers or edibles.


Some of the best THC edibles are Cheeba Chews, Incredibles and Coda’s Chocolate Truffles. Stillwater Brands, known for its precision in dosing, makes totally tasteless and dissolvable mixtures, so you can put them in almost everything. They also have an entire line of organic tea.

Oils and infusions

As for cannabis oil and infusions, Lucky Turtle makes some of the best THC and CBD products. Wonderland 303 makes old-school sugar Pixy Stix, and Flow Lab creates an infused sugar you can put in your CBD coffee. Some of the best CBD tinctures come from Boulder’s all-CBD Extract Labs.


The following are all spots that offer a shot of CBD in your coffee, smoothie or tea: Blue Sparrow Coffee, Denver Bicycle Cafe, Carbon Coffee, Drip Denver, Mattina Cafe , Precision Pours and Boulder’s Wonder Press.

Tours and more

There are 420-friendly downtown Denver hotels with vaporizers in the room, as well as vape and dab rentals available through Colorado Cannabis Tours. My 420 Tours offers a Sushi and Joint Rolling Class, various grow and dispensary tours, and even a Cannabis Infused Massage.

Explore these spots (and more!) by making Denver your new home.
