What People are Saying:

“I used to be a medical patient years ago when I lived in Colorado, but this was my first chance to go to a recreational store. Budtender Nate was super great – knowledgable [sic] and informative without at all being a know-it-all or pretentious. The buds he helped me select are all top-notch quality and the prices are more than reasonable. I would absolutely recommend P.O.T to anyone, but especially first time recreational buyers. ” –SomeKindaDude

What People are Saying:

“Wife smokes, I do not…. Besides that I have gone to a number of places and this one is by far the best I have visited, from the selection of flower to the awesome “bud”tenders, me being a non smoker can still interact and participate in the learning and purchasing. The store is well kept and very open and easy flowing. The prices are great as well, I like the option of being able to get her a gram of something new and not over-spend, or when the green dot deal comes around to her favorite strain we jump on it…Any first timers will enjoy the experience, we certainly did!!!!” –Bambam927
