Denver is one of the most vibrant and innovative cannabis cities in the United States. Home to more dispensaries than Starbucks, the Mile High City is a mid-west cannabis oasis, offering a wide variety of products and experiences to cannabis enthusiasts.
Denver has been enjoying the perks of legal weed since 2,000 when Colorado legalized marijuana. In 2015, the first recreational dispensaries opened in the city and have served locals and patients ever since. Dispensaries in Denver also serve many tourists who flock to the city from across the country to attend cannabis cups, where shops from Denver and across Colorado are often represented.
Whether you’re a cannabis tourist or a Denver local looking for a new dispensary experience, Leafly crunched the numbers to see what our reviewers say are the very best dispensaries in the city. Our newly updated Leafly List features the top dispensaries in Denver for 2023 based on user reviews and ratings.

The best rated weed dispensaries in Colorado
Highest-rated recreational dispensaries in Denver
10030 W. 27th Ave., Wheat Ridge, CO — recreational
“Excellent selection of flower, edibles, concentrates and paraphernalia for recreational customers. Located next to a huge park and a beautiful open area, it’s in a great location if you like nature. All in all, I am pleased to go back and recommend people to visit.”
920 W. 104th Ave, Northglenn, CO — recreational
“The budtenders take their time and listen to your needs. Their suggestions are well-informed and usually spot on! The shop is clean and nicely organized. I’m not a fan of dispensaries that are blasting music or trying to rush you through, and Callie’s is an oasis from that noise. The selection is outstanding across all cannabis products and they get new stuff all the time.”

“The staff was very nice and helpful. They never fail to make me feel welcome. Also the prices here are very affordable to the average person.”

6200 East Yale Ave. Unit B, Denver, CO — recreational
“I can honestly say that this is by far the best dispensary I have ever been to. Ive been to at least 60 other ones and none even come close to the cure. Product and prices are top notch & everyone here are super friendly and knowledgeable.”

“At DANK, I was greeted by a welcoming upbeat staff ready to provide information on their wide selection of products. The flower offered here is by far the best quality I have found in Denver and they offer it at reasonable prices. This same level of high quality and great pricing can be ascribed to all categories of products. Once you discover DANK service you too may never shop anywhere else. There’s no need too. This business is a great addition to our community.”

“This is my go-to dispensary. They always have something I’d like to try or at the least have what I normally purchase. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The order online feature is awesome and I use that because I’m disabled and use Uber to take me there. I’m in & out in a flash. Love this place”

Everything looks highly professional, and the quality of products there are top notch. I recommend the spot to anyone that is looking for consistent and high quality cannabis products”
