Denver is a city for everyone with outstanding nature nearby, a lively nightlife, vibrant arts scene and hundreds of marijuana dispensaries to choose from. An ideal day in the city starts with a cappuccino near Union Station, exploring incredible artist murals in RiNo (River North) and a late lunch in the Lower Highlands. Next, explore the quirky shops and dispensaries on South Broadway, then grab dinner in Cap Hill before heading to an exciting show at Red Rocks.

One perk of visiting Denver is that both medical and recreational marijuana is legalized and highly normalized in the state of Colorado. While anyone 21 and up may purchase cannabis products at one of the hundreds of recreational dispensaries around the state, there are some restrictions to be aware of when purchasing or consuming, so be sure to fully understand the laws before partaking! Although it’s illegal to consume cannabis in public and should only be smoked or ingested in a private residence, the state recently legalized marijuana consumption lounges, where visitors may consume openly inside.
There are a few Denver-specific restrictions to be mindful of when visiting. First, dispensaries are only permitted to be open from 8 AM to 10 PM. Furthermore, Denver currently does not permit the delivery of any marijuana despite the state legalizing delivery in 2019.
