It isn’t called the Mile High City for nothing. At the beginning of 2018, there were an estimated 169 recreational cannabis stores in Denver. With so many shops in nearly every neighborhood, it’s hard to pick just one store to visit. We’ll save you some time. Here are three Denver pot shops that are definitely worth the trip.


Altitude has three locations. There’s one in the west of Denver, and one on the eastern side of the city, and one on East Colfax, in Aurora, a suburb of Denver. All three locations are open to all adults 21 years and older, and the East Denver store serves medical patients.
They offer a Frequent Flower Miles program where you earn one point for every dollar you spend. If you become a member, you’ll get special deals sent to your email. Once you hit 250 points, you can start redeeming them for things. The rewards can range from a free joint to $500 store credit.
