Whether you’re new to the cannabis scene or a long-time smoker, you’ll find that this city has the right bud for your tastes. For those that want to avoid the unmistakable scent of marijuana, there are options for you as well. Edibles have made the rounds and are taking many different forms, such as suckers, truffles, brownies, and even gummy candies. These delicious treats are a safe and legal way to enjoy cannabis virtually anywhere. How do you take these edibles and find complete rest and relaxation while enjoying the Mile High City? Green Dragon Cannabis Company, one of Colorado’s premier marijuana dispensaries, has a quick guide to help you on your journey.
Find a Dispensary
First, you need to find a reputable dispensary so you can purchase quality products. These cannabis dispensaries are staffed by experts who see a lot of daily activity and can answer questions or concerns no matter your experience level. Your selections are purely based on personal preferences. If you have a sweet tooth, these dispensaries certainly have options to satisfy those cravings but also have that extra kick. You’ll be just like a kid at a candy store when you see what these cannabis dispensaries in Colorado have in stock. You must be mindful, however, that these edibles take 45 minutes to an hour to take effect. If you feel like you might get parched wandering around the city, you can always grab a bottle of bud. Not beer, but THC-infused beverages you can enjoy virtually anywhere. You can start your day off right and see the many sights, sounds, and flavors that make Denver such a hotspot for tourism. Just remember to take these products in moderation.
See the Sights
Denver has plenty of sights to explore while on your cannabis-fueled escapade. If you’re looking to experience nature, Denver has over 4,000 acres of parks and parkways you can peacefully stroll through. You can roam through the Denver Botanic Gardens, an expansive collection of gardens and greenhouses that is sure to keep you intrigued with beautiful garden pathways and tree groves. If you’re feeling artistic, the Denver Art Museum has one of the largest permanent collections of art pieces, like ancient artifacts and sculptures, and also hosts traveling exhibits between Chicago and the West Coast. For more modern artwork that normally doesn’t need cannabis to be mind-boggling, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver has original and intricate exhibits that are sure to wow you on your edible-driven trek through the city. Your perception of these pieces will surely be enhanced by using edibles. If you want to explore the sciences, the Museum of Nature and Science will let you explore the cosmos and see impressive dinosaur fossils. It’s sure to be a mind-bending experience.
Hear the Sounds
Long-time users know that one of the best ways to enjoy music is while sparking up some bud or taking edibles. Denver, being a historically cultural hub, is one of the best places to enjoy live music. Just 10 miles west of Denver is the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the musical center of the entire state of Colorado. It has received numerous awards and recognitions. What brings most people to this venue is the stunning view of the Denver skyline, as well as the beautiful rock formations around it. Using edibles will certainly elevate the beauty of this view. You can also attend major music festivals in the area where you can meet fellow users, whether they’re hardened stoners or casual users. You will see how large the marijuana community really is and have it all come together for a night of fun and frolic.
Enjoy the Food
Naturally, once you’re done with everything, you’re going to have a bad case of the munchies. Luckily, Denver is a gastronomical hub that, for some bud users, caters to their every craving. There are many places you can visit to satisfy your appetite, like the Cheba Hut, a cannabis-themed restaurant whose delicious range of toasted sub sandwiches are each named after different strains. You can also visit Avanti Food and Beverage, a bi-level food hall that contains many different vendors who sell scrumptious items like juicy burgers and even arepas. Cannabis users certainly love food, and edibles are one way to enrich your palate with the taste of Colorado.
