Medical marijuana dispensary review: Green Leaf in Denver

GreenLeaf-front.jpg
Google Maps.
Green Leaf probably does a lot of walk-in business from people living in nearby apartments who either can't get to other dispensaries closer to downtown for lack of transportation or are just too lazy to care. If it wasn't for the housing within walking distance to Green Leaf, I'm not sure the tiny dispensary in southeast Denver would stay in business.

At least, not with the meds on display recently.

The shop is tucked in the middle of a small shopping center in the horn of land created by the intersection of South Quebec Street and East Iliff Avenue. The sign out front is discreet enough, though I think most people here know what discreet businesses with ambiguous names painted in green really are. The lobby was done up in pastel greens and purples with splatter paint accents. It was straight out of the late '80s -- and not something I think any of us really want to remember.

After filling out some privacy paperwork, I was buzzed back through a long hallway also painted up like an '80s jazzercise office. But it led to a more normal, modern bud bar.

The bar space itself is roomy, and there's some cool stencil/graffiti artwork hung on the walls that's for sale. An ATM takes up one corner of the room, and the rest is devoted to weed, with an L-shaped counter filled with more than twenty different jars of bud in tall, square display jars.

Aside from the strange paint job in the entryway, everything seemed normal until I walked over to the bud counter and saw a jar of some alleged Girl Scout Cookies cross selling for $60 an eighth.

I looked at the jar like you do when you see someone throwing up in public. My budtender chimed in and told me that taxes are included, but even that means Green Leaf is charging more than $55 for the bud itself. Even if it were the best dispensary weed I've seen in ages, it wouldn't be worth that price. As it turns out, it wasn't even up there with the $35/eighth top tier of the last few dispensaries we've reviewed.

$35/gram wax from Green Leaf.
There were other high-priced strains, like a $55/eighth Skywalker OG that looked and smelled like brown hay, as well as a few other underwhelming OGs for $50. First-time patients get $5 off your first eighth, but it doesn't apply to strains above $45 -- and even if it did, I wouldn't have wasted it here.

The buds selling at $45 and $40 were wildly overpriced and mid-tier quality at best. That includes a lackluster Trainwreck, a leafy Super Sour Diesel with a sweetly rotten Golden Goat scent, and a Golden Goat that smelled like generic herb. The lowest-price-level buds, at $30 and $35 an eighth, looked about as good as a Midwest teenager's first-time grow in a closet powered by a couple of 75-watt lightbulbs. I'm not sure if it was from the stress of being poorly grown or if a male plant had gone unnoticed, but at least three of the strains on the low shelf were filled with immature seeds popping out of their pods.

Continue for the rest of the review and photos.

He can start with Good Chemistry on Colfax in Capitol Hill. They sold me moldy weed and refused to take it back and give me a refund. Then there's CCF on East Colfax, their buds were the least potent I have ever smoked. It was like the fake wizard weed you could order from the back of High Times.

William should review more bad shops, not only for the incredible humor value ("Midwest teenager's first-time grow in a closet powered by a couple of 75-watt lightbulbs."), but for the general public service.

"probably does a lot of walk-in business from people living in nearby apartments who either can't get to other dispensaries closer to downtown for lack of transportation or are just too lazy to care."


LOL! ... that's rich from the Too Fucking Lazy Bongsucker who for YEARS reviewed, and re-reviewed, and re-re-reviewed the SAME small handful of dispensaries located in and around his tiny neighborhood -- ignoring the HUNDREDS of dispensaries that he STILL HASN'T bothered to visit.


From the clueless LAZY whiny Bongsucker who buys GRAMS of overpriced, overtaxed, government controlled retail schwag from the Greedy Big $$ Dispensary Cartels because he's too much of a slacker to GROW HIS OWN, or obtain any quality bud from a private local caregiver / grower.

Tom you have no "facts" to support your claims. Just the same tired rhetoric. No one's scared anymore Tom you're going to have to supply factual science to support your bible thumping.

Damn. Their wax was nice (perhaps not clinic nice) but a bit overpriced. They also sold me a vape pen that broke within a day. Bud was exceptionally meh.

Pot will be the fall of Colorado. Bill, please deal with these issues/facts. Thanks Tom Godwin - Denver, CO Obama IS TAKING AMERICA DOWN AS HE PROMISED as evident with his campaign mind-set, versus leadership in the crisis related to Israel, Mexican guns/border, NSA, IRS, Benghazi, Iraq, Iran, ISIS, Afghanistan, Jobs, Debt, obamacare - it is part of his plan and things are not going bad for the President, he is winning. This is Obama's legacy, which he achieving - - if you go back to '07 and '08, his commitment to his LEFT was to take America down to a "Third World" level by killing the American way of life, changing over to the "NEW WORLD ORDER". The Obama Doctrine failed PLUS, Obamacare is killing Pass it on, If You Care!
