“Recreational cannabis is Colorado is a sad industry right now. Shops are selling 1/8's of warehouse, hay smelling flower for upwards of $60 BEFORE taxes. It looks a lot like Medical did when it was first passed. If you don't have the ability to get a MMJ card, you're almost better off not smoking.
That was how I felt before I came to Chronic Therapy in Wheat Ridge. $52.80 after taxes for an 1/8 of flower is still really expensive and overpriced, but for once I don't feel totally ripped off. Before I start rambling, let me just list the pros of this shop.
- Pungent and flavorful flowers (Around 10 strains this Sunday afternoon)
- A staff that was hired because of their knowledge. (Brandon was really chill and helpful)
- A cozy location that's the perfect mix of a chill hangout and a clean store (No hospital vibe)
- Easy to access wheat ridge location
- RIDICULOUS amount of easy, free parking
This is the only rec shop that I didn't walk out of without buying anything. There are a couple cons.
-Popcorn bud city. Almost every jar was filled with tiny .1 or .2 nugs. For the price point, it would be nice to get some good dense nugs in an 1/8. To their credit, the couple strains they had that were really tiny nugs were on special for $70 for a 1/4 out the door. (Even with me complaining about the bud size, I still had to take them up on that offer)
-The budtender was really pleasant and helpful with pricing and strain information, but it would be nice if they had an updated, itemized strain price list at the bud bar. It makes it a lot easier for the customer to look over. It also saves me from having to say, "How much is this again?" 10 different times. However, almost all of it is $52.80 after tax for an 1/8 except their Small batch strains (higher priced) and specials (lower price)
-Their in store strains didn't match what was on their Leafly and Weedmaps menu's. This isn't as much of a problem, mostly because all of the strains they had listed on the menu's WERE in stock, but they had more available in store that wasn't listed on a website. I would have been in right when you opened if I knew Cookies n Cream was in stock!
These 3 cons are mostly nitpicks and aren't enough to affect the perfect rating I'm giving them. Even if the buds are small, you can tell they were grown with care and grown to their full potential. The Liberty Haze and Cookies n Cream were both fantastic, and I will DEFINITELY be back. Awesome hidden gem in Wheat Ridge.”
