PHOTOS: Inside Colorado’s first cannabis “bar,” JAD’s Mile High Smoke in Denver

Since legal recreational marijuana sales began in 2014, Coloradans have had a plethora of places to buy weed — but not a ton of places to actually consume it. For many years, consumption spaces like Tetra Lounge and the Coffee Joint in Denver invited tokers to come and bring their own substances for use, but locals’ options were limited to just that — until recently. JAD’s Mile High Smoke opened in late April as the state’s first recreational sales and hospitality business in the state, a formal title meaning a lounge where consumers can both buy weed and smoke, eat or drink it onsite. That means you can literally belly up to a bar and order a non-alcoholic, THC-infused beer and a gram of marijuana served with a side of rolling papers.

The city of Denver would like to remind you it’s illegal to smoke pot at 420 fest

After a social media post promoting Denver’s signature Mile High 420 Fest sparked backlash among locals, the city of Denver took to its official accounts Tuesday to remind tokers that smoking weed in public is against the law. This post, published April 18, sparked backlash among parents and youth advocates, who said it aimed to welcome kids at the all-ages Mile High 420 Fest. The original post published by the city and county of Denver on Monday encouraged Denverites to “fight the stigma surrounding marijuana and celebrate the booming cannabis industry here in Colorado!” That didn’t sit well with parents and youth advocates, who noted the Mile High 420 Fest is open to all ages and suggested the post was also inviting kids to join the party, which has historically turned a blind eye open c...

Marijuana edible trends: Where to find rapid onset and CBG/CBN gummies in Colorado

The common colloquialism for the well-known stoner holiday of April 20 is to “light one up.” But if you’re not interested in smoking, the second most popular way to celebrate is eating some edibles infused with tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. I’m not speaking anecdotally. According to Louisville-based analytics firm BDSA, inhalable forms of cannabis such as flower and vaporizers accounted for 81% of dispensary sales (by dollar) in Colorado between February 2021 and February 2022, followed by edibles at 17% or about $380 million worth of purchases.

Colorado’s first cannabis “bar” with THC beer opens this week in Denver

Coloradans will soon have a bar where they can belly up to enjoy a non-alcoholic, THC-infused beer and order a gram of marijuana served with a side of rolling papers. JAD’s Mile High Smoke is poised to be the first recreational sales and hospitality business in the state, a formal title meaning a lounge where consumers can come to buy weed and smoke, eat or drink it onsite. The business, located at 7667 Washington St. in Denver, is slated for an April 22 opening. Owner Josh Davis said he’s an appropriate person to open this first-of-its-kind business. As founder and CEO of Legacy 64, he’s spent five years helping other marijuana businesses in Colorado and beyond ensure they’re in compliance with state and local laws.

Denver businesses seek hospitality licenses to let patrons smoke weed

A Cap Hill mansion-turned-B&B, an existing private club in RiNo and a new addition to South Broadway’s “Green Mile” are the first three businesses to apply for a marijuana hospitality license from the city of Denver. Denver has separate licenses allowing businesses to cultivate, transport and sell cannabis. But this new license — which opened up for applications in November — would allow businesses to let people consume cannabis products on site. Some establishments, including one of the three seeking a license, previously allowed patrons to do so. But Denver overhauled its cannabis laws last April, prohibiting private clubs from allowing on-site consumption without a license. Read the rest of this story on DenverPost.com.

This weed vape pen may be the only one you’ll ever want, but not the only one you’ll ever need

Editor’s note: Each week in Staff Favorites, we offer our opinions on the best that Colorado has to offer for dining, shopping, entertainment, outdoor activities and more. (We’ll also let you in on some hidden gems). Of all the myriad ways to consume cannabis, my favorite is smoking a vape pen. It wasn’t always. As someone who just moved to Colorado in late 2019, I didn’t have a robust selection of products to choose from in my prior years as a recreational smoker. And while I once thought I’d never grow out of the nostalgia of loading a bowl of flower, vaporizers give me the consistent experience I’m looking for without the need for a lighter or other equipment.
