If you have not had the opportunity to visit Colorado since marijuana has been legalized, you are sorely missing out. Often times, there is a very strange perception of what it is actually like to visit a dispensary and buy legal marijuana in the Mile High City. We thought it would be nice to bring some items into light that are unique and helping to propel the marijuana industry forward.
Hand Held Ordering
Euflora, a chain of dispensaries in the Denver area has made buying legal marijuana ultra hi-tech. You won’t find any budtenders here, customers help them selves through a self service tablet provided by the store. The tablets are chalk full of product information and located directly next to a jar of the product for customers to inspect. This is a great option for shoppers looking to poke around at their own leisure or for the quick in and out purchase.
In a sea of marijuana and dropping prices, it is becoming increasingly difficult for shops to make their products stand out from the crowd. To gain that competitive edge and showcase their award-winning strains, Denver Relief has a full line of stickers, t-shirts and other swag printed with custom design work specific to that strain. Because any marijuana purchased in Colorado must stay in Colorado, swag is a great way for dispensaries to make a connection with customers.
Similarly to going to the grocery store and looking on the back of a box of cereal for ingredients and nutritional facts, dispensaries in Colorado are required by the state to properly label every product with pertinent information. Several grow operations even operate completely organic cultivation facilities, giving way to the potential for the “Whole Foods of Marijuana.” As pictured above, Dixie Elixirs a popular Colorado edibles company, readily displays easy to understand, useful product consumption data on their website through a tool called Live Labels.
Concentrates, Lots of Them
For the occasional user, marijuana concentrates may not be familiar products. However, in regulated markets, the growth of shatter, dabs, wax, pie crust and budder (all different forms of marijuana concentrate) is exploding. One of the staple Colorado dispensary collectives, The Green Solution is a fantastic place to start your journey to become a concentrates expert. Through their Infuzionz brand, they regularly have 10+ strain specific selections to choose from.
People Of All Types
Visit any Colorado dispensary and I am positive you will see someone that does not look anything like you. It’s a beautiful thing. The stigma that only 22 year old college kids in tie-dye shirts are buying marijuana couldn’t be further from the case in Colorado dispensaries. The positive impact legalization has had across all racial, social and economic classes is profound.
