Thrillist - 04-20


Five years into legal weed sales, Colorado counts more than 500 retail dispensaries selling marijuana grown by 700+ cultivators. The state has successfully implemented some of the most stringent safety and quality controls in the country -- but that doesn’t mean every joint, concentrate and edible is created equal. The dispensary scene in Colorado has evolved in much the same way as food retailers have, with each brand -- whether it be a one-off shop or a vertically integrated chain -- catering to the tastes and values of every type of stoner.
