“Went to LoDo Wellness one day while I was downtown just to see what a few of my friends were talking about. A few of my friends that were visiting Colorado purely for the Cannabis experience decided to go to LoDo before a Rockies game; (so a few weeks ago). I decided to stop by LoDo Wellness while my sister was in town visiting. Just so happened to coincide that their is a delicatessen there that I go to frequently (this was a convenience stop); I digress.
Any-whosies; My sister and I walked through the glass door at the top of the stairs and were immediately greeted by the strong Cannabis odor, which was great! I thought this is a good start, and that is about all it was. I found that my experience there was just mediocre, here is why.
I rated LoDo 3 stars for quality, because their selection was very limited for recreational purchase, maybe 6 total strains offered from large jars. Not a lot to pick from, but then again, it is better than meeting "your guy" and getting what you get. I think they should at least try to offer a few more strains, I do understand that space is indeed limited and the demand for certain strains is at an all time fever pitch, still having more variety never hurt anyone.
The service at LoDo I rate at 2 stars, the bud-tenders at LoDo were kind and helpful people, just got the feeling that because LoDo deals with quite a lot of recreational traffic, that they were in the mindset of get in, get out. Whether or not that was their intention, who knows, (as I imagine it is not) I can and will say this, it is certainly not an attractive attitude to have especially in this niche of the hospitality industry.
The atmosphere is pretty unique there, which is why I rated it 3 stars. My sister and I walked downstairs and saw a small grow space. There is a big pane glass window at the bottom of the stairs, that lets you look at the grow process; really a neat idea to have something like that available for people to look at. We even took a picture underneath the window, just for fun. The atmosphere was average aside from that; in my opinion it was as average as your typical Reggae / Hipster style dispensary would be. I am not saying that LoDo's atmosphere was bad, or off putting, it was just average, their is nothing wrong with that, but then again, there is nothing that sets it apart either.
To answer the questions below, this was a first time visit, I might recommend to a friend, (might). I might shop at LoDo, again that is a maybe. I would at this point probably not recommend to a friend. I will be back to LoDo Wellness to see if my experience differs, my fingers are crossed.
Be well, be happy
