This multi-location chain is one of the larger companies in Colorado which means that the variety available here -- from different strains to edibles, topicals, concentrates, and more -- is always on point. They also offer some of the best deals in town including ounces for $99.99 all month long. You can also score freebies on 4/20 including a swag bag and free eats from local food trucks, and LivWell is donating $1 per 4/20 customer to the Fitch Foundation which supports disabled veterans through athletic programs.

Capitol Hill

Good Chemistry

Address and Info

Need to relax? Or maybe you're searching for a creative boost? Good Chemistry focuses on the physical effects of each strain option, and its clean, modern look is welcoming, which makes this an ideal spot for a first-timer. They also recently opened a second location in Aurora and are ready to celebrate 4/20 with strains like the body-high favorite Master Kush and pain-relieving Bruce Banner available starting at $30/eighth.

Highlands

The Clinic

Address and Info

This corporate chain may be big with six Colorado locations, one store in Illinois, and another opening soon in Nevada, but you'll still get personalized service -- especially at the Highlands location. Its flower and house-made concentrates are worth the trip alone, but we love sampling the expansive selection of edibles, which include everything from sodas and suckers to granola. Have a favorite indulgence? Get to know the daily deals, like 10% off edibles on Sundays and three-for-two pre-rolled cone joints on Tuesdays.

Native Roots Dispensary

Central Business District

Native Roots

Address and Info

Located right off the 16th St mall, this is the flagship location for Native Roots, and it's easily accessible for out-of-town visitors doing the typical tour of Downtown Denver. The company is also a big part of the city's marijuana culture as a sponsor of 420 Eve on the Rocks and the annual rally in Civic Center Park. And have you heard about that dispensary that is seeking naming rights to Mile High Stadium? Yup, that's Native Roots.

L'Eagle Services, LLC

Baker

L'Eagle

Address and Info

All natural, organic, pesticide free... no we're not talking about some new line of snack at Whole Foods. All of L'Eagle's products are produced in its sustainable, zero-waste facility so you can feel good about your environmental impact while you, well, feel good thanks to its products. When it comes to the strains that end up on the shelves here, a pure product is the aim, and bud is cured for three to six months -- much longer than the industry standard of less than a month -- leaving a clean taste that allows each strain's unique properties to shine. Ready to stop in? If you stop in by April 21st, you can score special deals including an ounce for as low as $99 after tax.

Five Points

Botanico

Address and Info

If you prefer concentrates over flower, stop in to Botanico for its early bird specials: between 9-11am Monday-Thursday and 10am-12pm on Sundays, you can score deals like house-made wax and shatter for just $25/gram. Not sure what all this talk about wax and shatter mean? No worries, the staff here is patient and can talk you through all the options.

The Medicine Man

Address and Info

Your buddy's got a long layover at DIA and is begging you to take him to a dispensary? This is the one you head to. It's the largest single location dispensary in Denver and only about 15 minutes from the airport. The Medicine Man updates its online menu regularly and boasts ample deals, like $45 quarters of top shelf recreational strains on Wednesdays and 50% off smoking accessories everyday during its 3:20-4:20pm happy hour.

Hilltop

Kind Love

Address and Info

Dispensaries within Denver city limit have strict requirements when it comes to hours of operation so most close at 7pm (some even earlier). Kind Love, however, sits right in the middle of town but technically operates under Glendale's guidelines which means you've got access to some of the best bud in town late into the evening until midnight. This spot also score big points for having tons of ways to save you some extra cash. Between happy hour deals daily from 9-11am, 15% off for first time visitors, plus optional punch card and membership options, a killer deal is never far off.

City Park

GroundSwell

Address and Info

Last year, they added recreational to the mix and now offer both in separate spaces within the same location. Join the loyalty program and, after purchasing eight eighths, you'll get your next for a penny. And for April, they're offering 4/20 deals: you can score two grams of wax for $75 or two grams of shatter for $90 through April 30st.

Sacred Seed

Virginia Village

Sacred Seed

Address and Info

Sacred Seed, one of the most welcoming shops in the city, has been working on the medical side of the business since 2008; it has the experience to back up its claims that they offer some of the best strains in the state, but the business has stayed small generating a sense of community that's lacking in some of the larger chains. Daily deals keep prices affordable. Be sure to stop in on Wednesdays when you can pick your deal -- in the mood to smoke? Done. Prefer edibles? That's all good too. Need a new pipe? Get a solid discount and enjoy, it's all up to you.
