Cannabis has been legal in Colorado for a few years now, and as a result, the state has some of the best dispensaries out there. From extracts to edibles, our lovely state is really killing the cannabis game right now. Well-stocked shops with high-quality products and hyper-informed staff members exist–and we’re here to share a few of our favorites specific to the Denver area.
Pig ‘N’ Whistle
4801 W Colfax Ave, Denver, CO 80204
The Pig ‘N’ Whistle is a retail and medical marijuana dispensary in Denver. Formerly a motel owned by Eddie Bohn, the boxer, that catered to boxing legends and the sports stars of yesteryear. The motel served as a cultural hub for the area of West Colfax, and a purveyor of alcohol in their famed basement-level speakeasy. The Pig N’ Whistle is now a landmark location that celebrates the end of the cannabis prohibition by offering premium concentrates at affordable prices. They have an impressively large assortment of extracts and a well-trained staff that are experts in their field.
