Per Colorado law: an ounce of flower is equal to 8 grams of concentrate or 800 mg (THC) of edibles.
Retail marijuana is intended for private, personal use. Marijuana may not be consumed openly or publicly. This includes but is not limited to areas accessible to the public such as transportation facilities, schools, amusement/sporting/music venues, parks, playgrounds, sidewalks and roads and outdoor and rooftop cafes. It is also illegal to smoke at indoor-but-public locations like bars, restaurants and common areas in buildings.
It is illegal to use or consume marijuana in a motor vehicle and it is illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana. Marijuana may be carried in cars but it may not be in an open container and cannot cross state boundaries.
Repeat: It is illegal to take marijuana across state lines. DIA prohibits possession, use, display, and transfer of all marijuana on its property.
Sorry, no. Regulations in Colorado state that you can only purchase recreational marijuana products in person at a licensed dispensary. But if you find yourself in the Denver area (and are 21+), stop by and see us!
Methods of consumption:
- Inhaling (smoking, vaping)
- Digestive (edibles: eating, swalloing)
- Sublinguals (tinctures: holding it under the tongue)
- Topical (creams & salves: on the surface of the skin)
- Transdermal (creams & rubs: into the bloodstream through the skin)
Concentrates are a potent consolidation of cannabinoids that are made by dissolving cannabis in its plant form into a solvent. The resulting product has very high THC levels (generally more than flowers or hashish), and can produce varying products that range from thick sticky oils (BHO) to moldable goo (budder/wax) to resinous bits (shatter).
An edible is a medicated edible good that has been infused with cannabis extracts. Edibles are commonly baked goods such as cookies, brownies, flavored drinks, breads, and candies.
The two major types of cannabis plants are Indica and Sativa. Indica strains generally provide a sense of deep body relaxation. Sativa strains tend to provide a more energizing experience. There are also a wide range of cannabis strains in between Indica and Sativa. These strains are known as “Hybrids” and show traits directly related to the genetics in its lineage.
CBD — Cannabidiol — is one of the many chemical compounds in a class called “cannabinoids” that naturally occur in cannabis plants. CBD has the capacity to deliver mental and physical benefits without the sensations of being stoned, and is known as the part of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential.
It also has many special qualities that can make it an important part of both a user’s recreational or medical experience. CBD’s reported benefits include relief from anxiety, joint pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, menstrual cramps, insomnia, nausea, seizures, bowel inflammation, and moodiness.
