Finding a Helping Hand on Pearl Street

June 11th, 2017

A few weeks ago, I was having dinner with a couple friends on Pearl Street.   As we were enjoying our meal, we started discussing this blog and some of the dispensaries I should check out – both in Boulder and others in the State.   We decided right then and there, after eating, we’d check out Helping Hand Dispensary which is located on Pearl between 10th and 11th. I’ll be honest, I’ve passed this dispensary a few times and never really given it much thought.  I had never gone in before or looked it up online, so walking in I had no preconceived notions at all.   My first instincts... Read More

4/20 is the New Black (Friday)

April 23rd, 2017

We are now in the third year of legal recreational marijuana in the state of Colorado.  That means, this last Thursday, April 20th, better known as 4/20 (aka 420, 4:20) by potheads the world over, celebrated the third year of this special “holiday” in the state that started the legalization party.   The day is celebrated a variety of ways.   There are massive outdoor parties to mark the occasion (you all probably heard of reported headaches experienced at this year’s downtown event).   Gear is freely given out to help promote the day and their brands by local cannabis companies.  ... Read More

The Farm’s Green Pastures

April 16th, 2017

Last week, I introduced you to The Farm.   I was very impressed with their website, and the way that they market themselves in general to Colorado’s cannabis consumers.  As I mentioned at the time, I felt that they did a lot on their site to set themselves apart from the competition.  Their website was clean, well structured, and full of information about them as a company and their products.  Based on what they were presenting, I had high hopes for my first visit, so I went the first chance I had. First things first, The Farm doesn’t look like your typical corner dispensary.   In fact,... Read More

“Joint” Sessions Trumped?

March 9th, 2017

Welcome to “Habeas Cannabis: Lawyer Blows Smoke,” a blog where cannabis laws and related political issues will be discussed. For clarity’s sake, I disagree with any intrusion by the federal government into the legalization of marijuana at the state level. That said, there is nowhere to begin without first asking, what will be the Trump Administration’s federal policy regarding state legalized marijuana? Let’s start by unpacking what we know so far. Trump has ensured, without elaboration, that he is dedicated to bringing “law and order” to our inner cities. Meanwhile, Attorney General... Read More

Dispensary Etiquette: The Right Way To Shop For Cannabis

November 26th, 2014

The art of being a budtender is making customers feel comfortable and excited about purchasing cannabis. There are many elements that dispensaries provide to make these emotions happen: flowering house plants, relaxing music, local artwork, a shop dog, and much more. The one element that is out of the dispensary’s hands is how customers interact with their staff and the other patrons. With emotions flying, I can understand how you can get carried away or find yourself in your own world. Whether it’s your first time or you are a veteran shopper, consider the following elements that you bring... Read More

The Difference Between Medical and Recreational Dispensaries

November 19th, 2014

I ask for two things when a new or returning patient enters the medical dispensary: a red card and a valid photo ID. When the person informs us they don’t know what a red card is, it is the first sign that they are looking for our recreational shop. Now that marijuana is a recreational substance, both Colorado residents and tourists are getting even more curious! Although dispensaries are open to the public, there are two types of stores for two types of consumers. We often hear, “well, what’s the difference between the two shops?” Let’s look into the most significant differences... Read More
