Medical marijuana dispensary review: DANK Colorado in Denver

dank.platinumOG.JPG
Platinum OG- $40/eighth
I'm not sure there was any more room for trichomes on these chunky, pinecone-shaped buds. Crystals were basically fighting it out with crystals for space, and it had a delicious, fresh-turned-earth richness to it out of the jar that grew stronger the more the bud was broken up. Surprisingly, it didn't taste very strong at first, but a tart, lemony aftertaste surfaced a few minutes after I finished the bowl. As the trichome development hinted, the bud was super-stoney and potent. I made the two grams I purchased last for several days longer than it should have just by taking small one-hitter snaps as needed. Including the tax in the $40 price tag is my only suggestion for this otherwise enjoyable flower.

Sour Kush- $40/eighth
At my budtender's suggestion, this big chunk of greenery came home with me. It had a very wild appearance, with foxtailed calyxes sticking from the central branch. There was a good amount of sugar leaves left behind, though nothing I didn't put in my pipe and smoke along with the buds. The herb lost its odor after a few days in the not-so-airtight container I brought home with me -- but grinding it up brought the citrus and rubbery tang out. It burned with a full, delicious flavor, and it was easy to see why my budtender was so stoked on this cut. Almost immediately, I was hit with an uplifting, cerebral buzz with a kick like a cup of coffee. I had the same small gripe about the price as I did with the Platinum OG, but otherwise this was great for mid-day toking to get the appetite up and running or to just relax and enjoy my own private head space for an hour or so.

"420 Hash"- $10/gram
Though the shop had some appealing $15 top-shelf hash, I went with the tan, lightly pressed chunks of blended lower-shelf concentrate. Out of the jar in the shop it had a rich, pine-forest smell blended in with the earthy hash. For $10, though, this was a very smokeable blend that bubbled and sizzled on top of a bowl and smoked down cleanly when sprinkled on a red-hot titanium nail. Like I said: strain-specific hash would be ideal from DANK, but this isn't a bad alternative in the meantime.

 I second that. However, until Donkey's mom kick him outta the basement and into the real-world, you can expect him to continue trolling non-stop.

Donkey Hotay....you wear your jealousy and bitterness like a pair of ill fitting too tight blue jeans.  No one respects you because you come across like a complete and utterly jealous jerk envious of everyone's hard earned success.  Give it a rest.

I like the Don Quixote play on words. We are fully licensed and have it on display on our wall. Please feel free to swing by and check us out! 303-394-DANK. I agree Westward should focus on us who are doing this the right way! GG

Liar! How difficult is it to take a picture of that supposed license and post it on the Internet for all to see?

Licensing issues aside, almost everything we've ever reviewed from Dank has been stellar and worth the trip. Their Chem Dawg tested at 21.03% total Cannabinoids (from Herbal Synergy) and the Platinum Kush and Sour Dawg were excellent. Prices could be better, given the location, but at least you never risk buying low-potency bud.

Herbal Synergy is a sham, any one who knows anything about this industry knows that Herbal Synergy's test constantly come back abnormally high, good for advertising i suppose but definitely NOT accurate testing, do a little research, you'll see.

Why give press to those unapproved dispensaries -- many of whom will be denied as unqualified -- when there are over 100 dispensaries that are fully licensed and approved by the State and City where they operate? Perhaps WW should limit its coverage to the Licensed Facilities.

Where do you get your information that states "there are over 100 dispensaries that are fully licensed" (which includes their OPC) I'd like to see this list, thanks donkey

There are over 100 MMC that do have State Licenses ... perhaps WB can limit his reviews to those licensed facilities... ... which would take 2+ years to cover anyway.

Shops don't need a license to be open and legally operating currently (at the state level, that is), only to be in the application process.
