Medical marijuana dispensary review: Green Cross of Cherry Creek
The Blackberry Kush was a much denser, more full-grown specimen and had a black-coffee-and-sugar-cereal smell out of the jar. But it had its faults, too -- notably that the true strain-distinct smells really only came out after mangling the bud between my fingertips. At that point, the Blackberry Kush smelled like over-ripe blackberries and powdered fruit-punch drink mix made with too little water. Still not much of a full flavor to the strain, but it was potent and relaxing, with a mellow buzz that lasted a good hour and a half before evening out into a body buzz for the last half hour. Not bad by any means, but still: $45 for this plus tax makes it nearly a $50 eighth, and that's way too high. Closer to $40 and change would have been more like it.
For concentrates, the shop had a single huge chunk of ice-water hash the size of a racquetball ball that looked like a mix of different filter screen sizes, with a few chunks of plant matter thrown in for good measure. My budtender said it was some of the best bubble hash she's ever had. Either she was stretching things to make an up-sale or she's never had good bubble hash, but either way, I passed. The shop also had BHO in stock all made from an outside vendor. Though the yellow flaky hash didn't look awful, there were other small jars filled with what looked more like the black, viscous oil on the floor of your garage than the oil that should be in your pipes. Again, a pass.
Blackberry Kush from Green Cross of Cherry Creek.
That left me with an eighth of herb that, after tax, came to just under $49. Not to bemoan the point here, but that's at least $10 too high, even for the top-tier buds. Fix that and Green Cross of Cherry Creek would be worth a second visit. Until then, save your money: There are better, cheaper buds out there for the taking in this town.
