Medical marijuana dispensary review: Mile High Medical Cannabis in Denver

Mile High Medical Cannabis isn't the first shop I've visited with some major issues to their marijuana.

But it just might be the one shop I've come across that was most welcoming of that bad news.

I stopped by Mile High Medical a few weeks ago, back before the Broncos horribly blew the Super Bowl like a cheap hooker and people were still milling around Mile High Stadium buying AFC Championship T-shirts...

The shop gained some notoriety during the playoffs for being the closest legal weed shop to the games themselves -- you could throw a wobbly duck pass from the front door of the dispensary and hit the tailgaters.

I didn't visit the recreational half of the store, which forces patients around back to the alley. But I figured the herb selling on the medical side was exactly the same -- something confirmed by my budtenders when I was shopping. There's a sign on the front of the shop telling recreational customers that the front is medical only and that recreational customers need to go around to the alley, but I must have watched three or four people read it and still walk right in the front door wearing a confused look.

The shop lobby includes a ratty, well-worn couch and a massive fish tank that takes up the south side of the room. The receptionist is behind a huge metal-and-glass cage like a payday-loans teller.

The guy behind the counter was quick to greet me and grab my card and ID before telling me to have a seat while the patient ahead of me finished up his purchase. The shop had a heavy, chemical fertilizer smell to it on top of the abundant ganja odor, not unlike the Miracle-Gro lawn spray my dad used to douse our lawn with when I was a kid.

After the dude ahead of me finished up, I was called back to the tiny bud bar, where my budtender Nicole, a woman in her late twenties, greeted me with a "What's up?" and we instantly got down to business.

Here's the thing: The shop clearly can grow some plump, crystal-coated buds, and there's no arguing that the jars filled with various chunky strains were all somewhat impressive. The 303 Kush and Sour OG jars were filled with golfball-like pinecone buds, and huge nuggets of fluffy, spicy Durban Poison and a leafy, super-photogenic Flo were also on hand.

But what was lost to me due to the fertilizer smell already floating around the shop was the clearly unflushed odor the buds were letting off. In my ten-minute browse through the strains, I also missed some of the other issues that became very apparent at home.

Continue for the rest of the review and photos.

If you are looking for more reviews and listing for Marijuana Dispensaries and Stores/Hedge Shops then check out MJ-Xchange.com. It is a new social media site for marijuana users and legal marijuana businesses in the usa. They also post current news in the industry, like how businesses in the Marijuana Industry can now sign up and be able to accept debit and credit cards payment. Such company that offer such services is MJ-Merchant.com. MJ-Merchant.com is offering debit and credit card services for legal dispensaries and stores/hedge shops. So, how everything trending out, I think most the shops will be force to become more professional.

No comment on mile high, but seriously, 1 in 2 dispensaries has nasty undlushed, uncured, carcinogen treated weed

How is it possible he missed the pm, mites, and other funk in 50% of the shops out there. Where are those reviews anyway?

Visited Mile High on the recreational side and was impressed by the facility. Their staff took the time to make fantastic recommendations about what strains would be right for me, and the product didn’t disappoint. I took the buds home and was really pleased with the freshness and quality of the product. I’ve been to other dispensaries and easily paid way more, but their product is well priced and of terrific quality I would highly recommend anyone visit and check it out!


this article was obviously written when they first opened , and i can tell you that their operations and buds are first quality, their people care and do a great job. Honestly if you've had a bad experience go back and give them a second chance. Allot of these placed had a huge influx during the first month, and with their proximity to the stadium i'm sure they had non stop customers coming in the doors. now that things are back to normal give em a shot!

I went to this shop last week, it was my very first time purchasing recreation-ally, it was a joke! I actually pulled up and read their sign about walking around to the back, I got in my car and left. I drove around for an hour trying to find another shop near by, had no such luck! Time was running out so I had no choice but to go back to Mile High-the parking lot was full of pot holes and mud. I walked into shop and no one even acknowledged me, no greeting "we'll be right with you" or a small "High". I waited about 5 minutes and then was greeted by some younger girl with dark black hair, she had 3 jars of bud and a pan of some shake. I tried to look at the other 2 stations which had more than what she had at her station and she waived me back over. Took me a minute to figure out they have their own stations and she claimed my business, I guess, since she was the first to greet me. She basically had one strain of sativa and one indica to choose from. Needless to say, they are rude to their customers and lack a variety of strains. I would never recommend this place to anyone! I did however find a great tool to use in looking for future dispensaries "weedmaps" iphone friendly :)

Jennifer the only stupid thing here is your ridiculous comment. Why don't you keep your white trash opinions to yourself?

I can't stop chuckling when I read review articles about dispensaries. It almost seems like a mediocre SNL attempt at satirizing a critic's review of a fine dining restaurant.

Great review, glad to see the separation and the ownership that Nicole took. I would try them in a few months except for the prices...

If MMED finds out about the mildew and bug contamination, they'll be forced to destroy the entire crop!

@DTown87  What does the stadium or nice people have to do with mold and bugs? Do you also recommend we visit your favorite brewery, known for selling beer with mildew and gnats in it? I'm not even sure you know how weed is grown, but to find contamination at that level, it's been there for a long time, and it's not going away for a long time, even if they do something about it. You have extremely low standards, hopefully not all commercial weed consumers are as stupid as you.

Hopefully water isn't wet.

Good for them. Selling shitty contaminated weed for 3 years is really something to be proud of. If there aren't bugs and mildew on their buds today, I'm sure they are replaced by an nice coating of insecticides and mold inhibitors. Mmmm, much better, sounds delicious. Commercial weed consumers aren't the brightest, but the industry taking advantage of them, and possibly poisoning them with contaminants, is disgusting. Like taking advantage of the stupid, just because no one is looking.
