Terrapin Care Station – Boulder, CO

Terrapin Care Station was founded as a medical marijuana provider in 2009 by Chris Woods, who, in 2012, went on to become the largest individual contributor to Colorado’s Amendment 64 campaign to legalize adult-use retail cannabis. The company is an industry leader in corporate responsibility and manages the entirety of their business in-house; their 250 employees work together to provide some of the highest quality products at the most affordable prices in the state of Colorado. Terrapin Care Station has also recently become the first legal seller of flower in the state of Pennsylvania, where 30 percent of their workforce is made up of veterans.

The Place

We visited their South Boulder location, and they have four other shops throughout Denver, Boulder and Aurora, with one coming soon to Longmont. This shop was one of the first medical licensed dispensaries in Boulder and has recently been renovated and licensed for the recreational cannabis market. At first, I was a little thrown off by the location, but soon realized it’s actually the perfect pot stop for commuters — its located directly off the highway at the outskirts of South Boulder, the ideal place to go after a long day of work or for anyone on their way to Denver. The store is certainly easy on the eyes, with a modern, minimal design.

The Product

The cultivators at Terrapin Care Station have been perfecting some seriously unique strains — a few caught my nose’s attention, including Ugly Stepsister, White Poison, Hell’s OG and Grapefruit Durban. My favorite had to be their Princess Leia, which is a cross between Cinderella 99 x Lemon Alien Dawg, and packs one rebel force of a cheesy, fruity, funny aroma. They also have an in-house line of concentrates called Double Bear; one of their most popular extracts is Lemon G, a hard one to keep on the shelves, as it contains traces of CBD. Another popular item is their Terrapins, small pre-rolled joints made with single-strain whole buds.

Melissa was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, where she couldn’t stay out of trouble for smoking weed--especially during college. Immediately after graduating with a business degree from Elmhurst College in 2012, Melissa made her way to the safe smoking haven of Colorado, where her love for live music and music blogging eventually led her to a part-time writing position with DOPE Magazine. Melissa enjoys medicating with indica-dominant hybrids, and will never say no to a big solventless glob. When she isn’t busy writing, Melissa loves spending her time in the mountains with friends, practicing her violin, and exploring the never-ending amounts of dank breweries and restaurants in Denver.
