Photos: See all 47 recreational marijuana shops Denver has licensed so far
Update: How quickly is the Denver recreational marijuana scene changing? On February 4, when we last updated our list of recreational marijuana shops licensed by the city so far, the total was 37 -- more than double the eighteen that opened on January 1. And now, just over three weeks later, another ten have been licensed, bringing the total to 47. All of them are included here, along with photos, videos, links and excerpts from reviews of the ones visited by Westword marijuana critic William Breathes. Count them down below.
Big photos and more below.
1620 Market Street
Denver, CO 80202
An excerpt from William Breathes's August 2011 review: "Natural Remedies is on the fifth floor of a turn-of-the-century building on Market Street above Sonoda's Sushi. The building has a central staircase and the smell of freshly fried tempura wafts all the way up to the fifth floor, generally overpowering the faint smell of cannabis until you get to the front door of the shop."
Wellness Center of Denver
330 South Dayton Street
Denver, CO 80247
An excerpt from William Breathes's March 2013 review: "Wellness Center of Denver is probably the closest dispensary I've found to the dispensary-less wasteland that is Aurora.
Due to their proximity to A-Town, the folks there really didn't need to do much more than set up a cash register and fill some jars with warehouse buds.
Instead, they've opted for a fancy weed lounge and retreat that feels more Cherry Creek than Havana Street."
Advanced Medical Alternatives
790 West Evans Avenue
Denver, CO 80223
