It’s been over one year since Colorado’s Amendment 64 opened the door to recreational cannabis across the state and sales are still going strong at state licensed dispensaries, particularly in Denver. From gourmet edibles to therapeutic salves, the abundance of products to hit the recreational marijuana market can seem overwhelming to the uninitiated. Thankfully, a little bit of smart planning and some sage advice from the resident experts at Colorado Cannabis Tours can help you make the most of your time in the Mile High City.
Know Before You Go
If you only remember to pack one thing for your trip to Denver, make sure it’s a government issued photo ID. You’re going to need it. You must be twenty-one years of age to purchase any type of recreational cannabis product in Colorado, and people are definitely going to be checking. You don’t want the party to be over before it’s even started.
While you’re at it, it’s not a bad idea to assess your currency situation. Your best bet is probably to bring some cash alongside your plastic: not every outlet has the ability to take credit or debit cards, so keeping some cash on hand will ensure you don’t miss out on any of those must-have items you’re bound to encounter during your marijuana retail experience.
Making Your First Purchase
With your ID in hand, you’re free to start shopping around at any of the plentiful state licensed dispensaries in the Denver area, including Colorado Cannabis Tours mainstay, Medicine Man Dever. You’re allowed to possess up to one ounce of marijuana at a time, but be advised, non-residents can only purchase ¼ ounce in a single transaction. Practically, that means you can only purchase ¼ ounce per dispensary, per day. That includes things like edibles, which thankfully are carefully labeled to ensure there’s no confusion about the amount of cannabis they contain.
420 Friendly Retreats
Once you’ve made a purchase, be advised that sampling is strictly prohibited on the dispensary premises. That includes the parking lot. Yes, that also includes edibles. So where can you partake? A 420 friendly hotel, of course. Actually, any private residence where you’ve been given explicit permission by the owner is also acceptable. If you’re in need of such accommodations, Colorado Cannabis Tours can most definitely give you a hand in that department. Check out our selection of 420 Hotels for a complete roster of fantastic accommodations with vaporizer-friendly rooms and private outdoor smoking areas, ranging from the budget friendly to the outright splurge-worthy.

When it comes to enjoying your purchases, we recommend settling into your 420 friendly accommodations and taking it easy. Keep the dosage and potency in mind, and adopt a low and slow attitude when it comes to smoking, vaping, or snacking. This is especially important when you’re dealing with edibles. If you feel like you’ve overindulged, chances are a long nap can remedy the situation. When it comes to recreational cannabis, there’s always tomorrow – at least while you’re in Denver.
