Medical marijuana dispensary review: New Age Medical in Edgewater

a 100x95 new age medical.jpg
From the outside, you might think that New Age Medical looks like yet another stereotypical green-and-white discount marijuana shack pumping out crappy, cheap warehouse bud. And you'd almost be correct -- except for the exceptionally well-grown cannabis.

New Age Medical

2553 Sheridan Boulevard
Edgewater, CO 80214

Handicap-accessible? Yes.

The shop is nothing fancy. It is clean, but the herb is clearly the focus here. Decor is secondary. The initial waiting room is an afterthought, with bulletins from August still pinned up on the corkboard to the right of the reception window and a few chairs thrown together in one corner.

After I sat around for a few minutes, the receptionist finally came around and let me through the security door, took my paperwork and sent me to a more comfortable waiting area in the bud bar to fill out my paperwork while he copied my ID.

The bud bar is down a small flight of stairs in what could have been the converted former garage hangout of the converted former house that New Age Medical calls home. That was appropriate, considering that the place totally looked (and smelled) like my tapestry-strewn hangout room in college. Graff-style murals of bamboo were put up behind the bud bar, and opposite that wall is a massive mural with the Denver skyline, Bob Marley, fan leaves and other cannabis-related images. It's nothing super-upscale or fancy, but it clearly gets the job done for them.

I took a seat on one of the leather couches just to the right of the stairs facing the glass cabinets featuring jars of herb and filled out the required paperwork while a woman in front of me made her selections. The wait wasn't too bad; the woman appeared to be a regular the staff knew. She was out by the time I finished filling out the few pages of paperwork.

Super Sour Diesel.
When my turn came, my budtender (who turned out to be one of the owners) called me over, and I finally understood why so many people had been telling me to check this place out: Nearly all of the strains were enticing. And better, the shop still manages to stay in the discount level, with caps on everything at $30 an eighth and $200 an ounce. I was given the full run-through of the nearly two dozen jars of in-house greenery in all shapes, sizes, flavors and medical effects.

The owner told me that New Age grows everything in Sunshine mix and uses about a dozen different additives in the grow process. Whatever the crew is using, it's cranking out some pretty and stinky buds. Some of the more memorable were a stinky and ripe OG Kush, sweet and sour Vin Diesel, a chunky and well-developed Pineapple Express, and a bloated and crystal-coated Arjan's Haze. A few, like the Golden Goat and Bubba, had a little bit of a fertilizer kick to the end of their odors and could maybe have used a few more days flushing. But overall, it was the fullest selection of in-house I've seen in months.

New Age is the worst dispensary Ive ever been too...Maybe they got some new growers as I had to return my purchase only to be told they dont do returns...They finally did, and the product was just as bad. Old and dry.

 @Faycless Fayceless, you are by far not the only person to say things about NAM like that. A lot of online reviews were like your, but apparently things have really been coming around in the last few months. Might be worth a second trip by.

 

Thanks for commenting.

 @Faycless "I had to return my purchase only to be told they dont do returns."

 

LOL! ... try returning medicine to a pharmacy and see what happens.

 

 @Faycless "They finally did"

 

Then they violated MMED REGULATIONS!

Is is not a violation of regulations for an MMC to take back something they sold.  Proof or STFU Aaron
