Medical marijuana dispensary review: Greenfields in Denver

Greenfields. More photos below.
There are no green fields around Greenfields. Just lots of black-topped parking lot and the wide stretch of Mississippi Avenue out front. There's a small shrub-like tree on the curb, but that's about it. As if to make up for that, however, the owners have painted their odd little building (formerly an awesome Mexican meat market and bakery that moved next door) entirely green.

The two women working behind the scenes the day I was in were blasting pop music through the speakers in the waiting room. (Thanks, ladies: I've still got that damn Umbrella-ella-ella song in my head.) I stood around for a second wondering if anyone was behind the receptionist window that had been tinted to nearly one-way levels of darkness. Eventually, though, a tiny voice from behind the glass asked me if I was a medical patient and if I had all of my information with me.

I am and I did, so I handed it over and was buzzed through to the empty and echoing confines of the shop itself. Before, the place felt crowded with meat stands and tables and food on display. Now it seems huge -- and green, as the same neon shade outside is repeated inside. A bud bar runs the length of the shop from front to back, with edibles and vape pens all the way down on the left and herb kept in jars on the other end. One corner has been set up as a patient lounge, and for the most part, staffers have erased signs of the former business, minus the huge stainless freezer door in the middle of one wall.

A manager I spoke with afterward told me the shop is currently going through a remodel. As a result, it will probably look different -- and less empty -- in the coming weeks. She was really friendly during our conversation, and frankly, so was the staff at the center itself. I've never been called "mister" at a dispensary before, and both women seemed genuinely happy to deal with my nerdy questions about the herb, the strains on the shelf and how much everything cost, answering it all with a smile.

And, according to the ladies, everything is cheap. The shop has three levels of herb, with yellow-labeled jars on the top shelf, pink jars in the middle and green representing the lowest quality. That price break only matters at the ounce level, though. Quarter ounces of all strains sell for $50 with tax included (eighths are $25), and ounces were selling for $145, $150 and $155, depending on their quality.

For the most part, the herb was worth that price. Buds like the LA Confidiential, the Flo and the Chem X Flo were all grown okay, but none put off a very strong, strain-distinct smell, and a few had a musty, hay-like thing going on. But they were all plump and ripe, so the shop is almost there.

The clinic, pink house, options, or river rock. They don't spray with turf fungicides

Great! Patients Choice has the same product if not better, for the same prices! They had an offer yesterday for $20 a gram of BHO wax, budder. Best place I've been. Name your favorite dispensary?

@Monkey   ... Wastedword should assign Bongsucker Billy to review the major burger chains ... telling us important shit about the decor, layout, counter help, etc.


It would be as informative and useful as his insipid Dispensary Reviews.

... figures you'd patronize a dispensary founded by a Convicted Sex Offender from Florida.

@DonkeyHotay @Monkey  Donkey should get a fucking life and stop trying to garner attention from his comments on the website of an insipid local newspaper.

@DonkeyHotay Recommending that people use craiglist to find private growers or caregivers is just fucking stupid. 


Maybe you didn't get the memo, but craigslist is not much more than liars and scam artists. How do you expect or what do you recommend people do to prevent something like this happening? I'm just curious if you have a solution or if you're trolling. Both?

@HGuy3424 ... just because you have a social phobia doesn't mean the rest of the world, including those who interact on Craigslist, are as scared as you are.


No doubt you fear eBay too, all those "strangers" just waiting to rip you off.
