Who We Are
Denver Dispensaries is an online network resource dedicated to helping people locate medical and recreational marijuana dispensaries throughout the State of Colorado.
How Our Website Works
On Denver Dispensaries, you have access to a map of all the medical and recreational marijuana dispensaries near you. You can view by location on the map or by list view or grid view.
You can sort the dispensaries by medical versus recreational, dispensaries that are open late, list alphabetically, by rating, by reviews, by publishing date, or randomly! Each dispensary listed has a telephone number, address, hours of operation, and an overview of the establishment and any reviews left by our visitors.
If there are daily specials specific to the business, these are displayed in the overview.
Creating a User-Friendly Network
Denver Dispensaries strives to make our database easy to navigate. You can share the specific dispensary’s page on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other social platforms with a click of a button. There is also an opportunity to leave reviews for each dispensary listing. Like what you see and want to save it for later? We also have an “Add to Favorites” feature.
Our resources page contains articles that include information, news, or updates about everything marijuana. Some of our articles include “What is a Dab? A Guide to Marijuana Dabs & Concentrates” and “Denver Colorado Marijuana Laws – Updated for 2020”. We want everyone to stay educated and informed, so we update our resources page often.

Frequently Asked Questions about Denver Dispensaries
Is marijuana legal in Colorado? Can I buy it?
Yes. If you are 21 years or older and have a valid government-issued ID, you can legally buy recreational marijuana. If you are 18 years or older and have a valid government-issued ID and have a medical marijuana card, you can purchase marijuana.
What is a government-issued ID?
Examples of a government-issued ID include a driver’s license, instruction permit, identification card from any US state or territory or province of Canada, Merchant Marine ID, US Armed Forced ID, or passport. The ID must be up to date and not expired.
Can I buy cannabis if I am not a Colorado resident?
Yes, you are legally allowed to possess and consume recreational marijuana in the state of Colorado even if you are not a Colorado resident if you have a valid government-issued ID. There is no input into a cannabis registration system for recreational use, but there is for medical marijuana use, which must be registered into the state system. Remember, you cannot cross state lines with any cannabis products. You have to use or leave behind any remaining weed. You will have to buy more in the state or country you’re going to (if it is legal there).
How much cannabis can I buy?
Recreational users without a medical card can possess up to one ounce of cannabis at a time. If you are a registered medical patient, you may possess what is medically necessary for your condition.
What are the reselling laws?
Only licensed retailers are allowed to sell cannabis products. No reselling is allowed and can result in state or federal prosecution.
Where can I consume cannabis?
You cannot consume cannabis in public, it is illegal. This can result in a ticket. Concerts and other events are considered publicly accessible and therefore cannabis consumption on the premise of these events is prohibited. It is also illegal to possess and consume cannabis products in national parks, national forests, monuments, and other federally run properties due to cannabis not being legal on a federal level. There are a couple of Colorado Marijuana Social Lounges in Denver and a few in Colorado Springs where you can smoke or consume cannabis products legally and socially indoors. However, these social lounges are not widespread yet so if you are in another area besides Denver or Colorado Springs, it is best to use in the comfort of your own home (or your friend’s house).
What are the laws for smoking/consuming cannabis and driving?
The legal limit of the amount of active THC in your system while driving is 5 ng per ml of blood. Like drinking alcohol and driving, smoking/consuming cannabis while driving counts as driving under the influence and can result in serious consequences. Like alcohol, no open containers of cannabis products may be in the car. It is also illegal to drive friends who are smoking in the back of the car. Getting caught violating any of these laws can result in a DUI or other legal action.
How can I get medicinal marijuana?
You must have a medical marijuana card and be a Colorado resident to purchase medical marijuana. Medicinal marijuana must be recommended by a licensed physician. To apply for a Colorado medical marijuana ID card, you must fill out an application form, get certified by a physician, provide a Colorado government-issued ID or proof of residency waiver, and a $15 check or a fee waiver. Once you have obtained the medical marijuana ID card, it can be taken to any medically endorsed dispensary to be inputted into the state-wide database.
What are the laws regarding edibles?
All edibles must be individually wrapped and must not exceed 10 mg per dose. They can come in the form of chocolates, rice krispies treats, brownies, and more. Due to the resemblance of regular candies and sweets, it is very important that these be kept out of reach of children.
Are all dispensaries cash only?
Cannabis is not federally legal yet, so banking can be a challenge in regard to dispensary transactions with credit and debit cards. Therefore, dispensaries are cash-only establishments, though many have ATMs onsite to make cash withdrawal easy for customers.
What are the hours of operation for cannabis dispensaries?
Each dispensary can operate during the hours of their choosing within certain limits. The state law allows dispensaries to be open from 8 am to 12 am, though some specific cities have their own rules that slightly deviate from this. For example, Denver dispensaries must be closed by 10 pm.
