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.
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 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.
