Colorado Dispensaries

Colorado's First Medical Marijuana (MMJ) Dispensaries

Caregivers and medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado began to appear in early 2000.  In the beginning of Colorado's push for medicinal marijuana, only a handful of dispensaries existed.  For these early Colorado dispensaries operating their marijuana sales operations in a highly discrete manner was necessary to avoid avoid scrutiny from federal and state officials and ultimately to stay in business.

This all changed in 2009, when the Board of Health rejected a proposal to restrict the number of patients a caregivers could grow cannabis for to 5.  With the rejection of this limit the dispensary model was born and the path toward to robust Colorado marijuana scene you see today set. There are now hundreds of medicinal cannabis shops in Colorado and the state is making a killing of taxing marijuana sales.

  Recreational Marijuana Dispensaries in Colorado

Recreational dispensaries in Colorado serve residents and non-residents over the age of 21.  Recreational marijuana sales surpassed medical marijuana sales for the first time just a weeks ago, an indication of the strong demand for weed among recreational (AKA non-red card holding) users.

Most rec dispensaries just as good of cannabis as medical marijuana dispensaries.  Because of State taxes on recreational marijuana sales, however, buying recreation marijuana in Colorado costs a significant amount more than buying medicinal cannabis does.
