This dispensary has closed.

Pearl Co. is on the little stretch of South Pearl Street, just down the way from Sushi Den.

This may have been purely coincidental, but I'd like to think not -- since very little goes better with a case of the munchies than sushi, and nothing tastes better after grubbing pounds of raw fish than a big, fat spliff.

South Pearl Street in the afternoons can be pretty busy thanks to people shopping in the small boutiques that line the shopping district. But somehow I managed to land a street spot directly in front of the light-peach house with purple and green trim.

Like other shops, including iVita Wellness in Denver and High Grade Alternatives in Boulder, Pearl Co. doubles as an art gallery that rotates out collections from local artists. I didn't catch the name of this month's featured artist, but I really enjoyed his colorful oil portraits, which hung around the foyer-turned-waiting-room of the old house.

My budtender, a woman in her mid-twenties, greeted me, copied my ID and my red card, and we were on our way to the back bud bar within a few minutes.

The little house opens up into a spacious living area that has been converted into the bud bar. My budtender told me that the house used to belong to a couple who ran a tarot reading shop out of it. The eclectic red, purple and green paint throughout the house, she says, are remnants of the former tenants. Still, the shop has a clean, bright feel to it, with minimal furniture and bright, sunlit windows facing South Pearl Street.

The bud bar itself is a six-foot-wide wood-and-glass display case that wobbled when I leaned on it. It fits in well with the scuffed wood floor and tall, heavy wooden bookshelves to the left that contained various pot literature. My budtender was welcoming and friendly, asking me how my day was going and if I had any plans for the upcoming weekend. We chatted for a few minutes about the artwork in the shop before I finally turned my attention to the herb in the cases.

Pearl Co. shares a grow facility with sister shops Cherry Co. and Teapot Lounge, though not all strains can be found at all three. Pearl Co. breaks down herb into two price ranges, with $40 being the cap on eighths for non-members. Prices don't represent the added tax, so be prepared to spend a little bit more to appease the state when you're in. I started with the bottom-shelf, $30 eighths, including a solid pre-98 Bubba and a Master Kush. The top shelf at Pearl Co. was where the nuggetry was at, though. The shop carries a crazy selection of genetics its growers have been producing, including a lot of OG's and OG crosses as well as some appealing Nevil's Wreck, a killer Lavendar and a solid Skywalker OG. But the greenery that I had to try was the Super Silver Haze x OG cut. Out of the jar, it was the most unique-smelling strain I checked out.

Pearl Co. also carries hash made by arguably the top hash maker in the United States, Selecta Nikka T. Nik is recognized for his mad-scientist approach to hash-making that includes using distilled water, exact temperatures and other secret methods he has yet to divulge. Whatever method he's using, the guy consistently pulls some of the smoothest, most strain-unique hash I've ever seen. I tried a straight OG hash from Nik a few months ago, and I can still taste the condensed OG Kush taste if I think about it hard enough.

The day I was in, the shop featured various micron-levels of Purple Alien. Each level represents different screen filtration sizes used when making the hash, with smaller micron sizes often pulling less smokeable material. I grabbed the 70 micron "solventless wax," so named because it melts down like a butane-created wax without using the chemical solvent to remove the cannabinoids.

My budtender was happy to split an eighth for me, as well as weigh out a half-gram of hash, putting me just under $60 for a weekend's worth of medicine.

YES , WE CAN...YES , WE CAN...WE WILL WIN IN WAR ON TERROR (30 whities or what are terrorists will never come back alive...thank you lord....aaamen).

What do you mean tragedy! It was just a birthday present for planet apes president !!! That's all ! Feels great to flip hamburgers and hip hop atop of good news...makes you feel vibrant and energized !!!

ARIZONA = UTOYA = GOVERNMENT‘S "AFTERLIFE" CASH & $$ FLASH MOB (there was no shooting in Utoya or Arizona, but tear gas and theater instead on faces of multiculturalism maniacs..your guilt or blame and shame weapon against us and our families in our own countries atop of forceful unemployment during so called "ECONOMIC CRISES" during which third world foreigners are allowed to rape, kill, and still is nothing else but fast way to early retirements for government related criminals/ terrorists...$$$ extra bonuses, and newly issued state identities while calling you a terrorists) !!! http://stateofterror.blogspot.... or http://stateofterror.wordpress...

OBAMA = STALIN = BUSH or USA = SOVIET UNION http://avsecbostjan.blogspot.c... or http://avsecbostjan.wordpress.... Whitie is fighting war on terrorism just to come home and be pronounced as terrorist...turned in Timothy, jobless, homeless ...YESSS, WE CAN...YESSS,  WE CAN...GABBY OPENED HER EYES (Obaminator’s psychotic speech in Tucson = failed “Apocalypse Now“)

WAKE-UP !!! WAKE UP PEOPLE BEFORE IT GETS ALL TO LATE ON PLANET  APES !!! TEARS WON'T DO YOU ANY GOOD !!! AS BUSH STATED "THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE PAID FOR"(to die ) !!

EVEN IF IRAQ WOULD  HAVE BEEN WAR FOR OIL ONLY,  VETERANS WOULDN'T NEVER EVER HAVE TO BE HOMELESS PEOPLE THE WAY THEY ARE AND NOR WOULD OUR PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE ALLOVER THE PLACE THE WAY THEY DO TO VERY TODAY(never ending “war on terror” story). BECAUSE EVEN IF WAR WAS FOR THE SAKE OF MONEY, MONEY SHOULD BE USED  FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS AND NOT WHAT THE CASE IS OR AGAINST WHITES(to destroy us allover the world) !!! You don't really proof for 911, just put  your sht together in your heads...THIS IS PLENTY ENOUGH TO HAVE O(B)SAMA  INDICTED FOR CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST WHITE AMERICAN HUMANITY TOGETHER WITH HIS ZIONIST MASTERS) !!!

Don't worry O(s)bama, you have just saved USA what is lots of Dollars in  your DEBT DEALS as those best of America or Navy Seals would  also grew older and then you already know how it goes...DEAD & ILL = DEBT DEAL !!!

HOW MUCH FURTHER ARE WE WILLING TO GO IN ORDER TO PLEASE VERY SAME PEOPLE WHO DENY US EVEN THE RIGHT TO EXISTENCE(what is to you country without laws or lawless country in respect to your personal rights, but the one that in contrast to your denied basic human rights recognizes you extremely liable when payments are due) !!?

IS IT INDEPENDENCE THAT WE CELEBRATE OR DEPENDENCE (what are your credit card bills or alimony saying about it) !!? HOW IS YOUR DIABETES AND LOST MARRIAGES !!? FORECLOSURES AND  JOB SEARCH !!? THAT IS THE QUESTION TO BE OR NOT TO BE !!! IS IT LAND OF THE FREE OR STATE OF TERROR AGAINST OWN  POPULATION !!? IT IS TIME TO LET THEM KNOW WHAT COLOR ARE THE STRIPES ON OUR STAR SPANGLED BANNER !!! TIME TO DETERMINE WHOSE INDEPENDENCE/AMERICA, WE CELEBRATE TODAY(who wants to erase us and denies us the right to exist) !!! IT IS  IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHOM WE ADDRESS WITH "PRESIDENT" (STOP HUMILIATING YOURSELF) !!!

VOTING POLL:

DO WE NEED MORE PROOFS TO INDICT OBAMA AND BUSH ADMINISTRATION FOR CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY !!?

1)NO, THEY ARE CLEARLY GUILTY AS OIL WAR NEVER EVER WAS REAL ISSUE IN GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITES. REAL ISSUE  ARE FACTS OR WHAT WE WITNESS TODAY WHEN VETERANS  ARE HOMELESS, JOBLESS, KILLED, ETC.

2)NO, AS 911 ALONE AS WELL AS ACTIONS IMPOSED AGAINST  WHITES IN USA (as well worldwide) ARE CLEARLY INDICATING ACTS OF GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY

3)YESS AS JUST YESTERDAY(for over 15 years to very yesterday), WE (news/media = vacuum world of lies) WERE TELLING YOU THAT UNEMPLOYMENT WAS AT 10% WHILE TODAY ONE IS AT 50% (HOW COME NO ONE QUESTION JOURNALISM LIKE THIS OR  WHAT IS WORLD OF LIES AND DEMENTIA)!

4)I AGREE WITH FIRST TWO ANSWERS ABOVE.  IT IS TIME TO PRESS CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST BOTH ADMINISTRATIONS DUE TO ACTS OF GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY FOR THE SAKE(SAFETY) OF US AND OUR CHILDREN(DO NOT TURN THEM IN WHITE REFUGEES ON PLANET APES OR WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE WHEN VISITING ABOVE PAGES) !!!

hey man, i noticed you said you were given the anti-nausea drug fentanil. Is this different from the opiate analgesic fentanyl? I'm just asking out of curiosity. Glad you're feeling better also!

Nick consistently puts out amazing product. We try and carry his concentrates, but he rarely has surplus.I agree with you, William. He is one of the best.

Shawn, both are spellings for the same drug. One may be a brand name, I'm not sure. I'm hardly as well versed in pharmaceuticals as I am cannabis  ;)

But either way, yes -- they pumped me full of Fentanyl as well as Phenergen for the nausea.
