The Green Solution – Denver, CO
The Green Solution is a Colorado-based, family-owned cannabis company with 17 retail locations, 700 employees, and counting. They focus on providing education and transparency for their customers while setting the standard for business-model compliance within the industry. In fact, when Canada contacted Governor Hickenlooper for cannabis-related advice, he turned them to the folks at The Green Solution to help provide intel as to how to run a successful cannabis company. This vertically integrated brand is a driving force in the Colorado marijuana industry, and their “seed-to-sale” business model presents them with the opportunity to provide an in-house experience for The Green Solution clientele.
The Grape Street location, conveniently located right off I-70, is a popular destination for tourists getting into town due to its proximity to the Denver International Airport. It’s hard to miss because you can smell it from a mile away. Though the outside might look modest, it’s a true state-of-the-art retail facility on the inside. Customers love the open “gallery” vibe, and the ability to see and take selfies with actual plants thanks to their very approachable window garden display. Their layout is very easy to navigate, and each flower strain is on display with everything from genetics, potency and terpene profiles. Whether you’re a pro or a first timer, their concierge-level customer service will help facilitate customers with whatever it is they’re looking for.
This dispensary is attached to a 37,000 square foot cultivation facility, where they have approximately 16 strains in production at a time. The Green Solution flower is pre-packaged for quality control, and they pride themselves on their genetics. In addition to popular strains such as Bubba Kush and Snow Squall, right now the star of the flower show is their in-house strain “The Solution,” a cross between Pre 98 Bubba and Stardawg, which has an average potency of 26 to 27 percent THC. Nectarbee is the name of their in-house edible and extraction line, which is gaining in popularity. Whether you’re looking for bubble hash and wax, or lip balm and topicals, you’re sure to find a product to satisfy your needs.
This location is frequented by out of towners and is a great option for anyone who hasn’t seen cannabis plants up close. It’s actually one of the main stops on the infamous Colorado 420 Tours.
