Chris “they call me Chitty” Chitwood Manufacturing Facility Manager About your Best Bud: Chitty is the coolest person to ever come out of Arkansas. Seriously.

Buying Marijuana in Colorado for Nonresidents

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

I sold marijuana to a man who showed me a license from Alabama when I asked for his I.D., and after I handed him his order, he just stood there and stared at the bag in his hands. The moment stretched on, seeming stranger by the second, so I asked if everything was okay. “No,” […]

A Breakdown of Cannabis Concentrates

Saturday, December 2nd, 2017

This week’s post is just gunna be a quick-and-dirty alphabetical listing of all the cannabis concentrates out there on the market, because one of the top-ten questions I hear as a budtender is “what’s the difference?” So, I wanted to write something short and simple you could use as a reference, if you needed to. […]

November’s Best Bud of the Month

Saturday, November 18th, 2017

Zach Goldsmith Production Assistant About your Best Bud: If you’ve purchased flower from The Greenery, chances are, Zach held it before you did. He most likely looked at it under the huge, lighted magnifying glass that’s mounted to the stainless-steel table in our pre-weigh room. He most likely held it gingerly with those blue rubber […]

The Greenery Grow

Saturday, November 4th, 2017

I was a teenager the first time I saw a marijuana plant. It was a sickly thing, growing stunted and slightly brown in an Alaskan basement, but it was still wonderful. My friend had modified his chest-of-drawers. He’d taken the fronts off each drawer, and then he’d nailed them back onto the front of his […]

Colorado Marijuana Laws

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

Every so often, after I’ve sold someone marijuana in our dispensary and handed over his or her order, he or she will look at me as if they’ve been left holding the bag (quite literally). He or she will hold their pot like it might bite, and then he or she will confess: “Um… this […]

Caviar Marijuana

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

People get pretty pretentious when it comes to fish eggs. Think about it: the only true “caviar” comes from the critically endangered beluga sturgeon—a monstrous fish that swam alongside dinosaurs—and it sells for $290 an ounce. It’s salty and black and usually enjoyed by people who wear suits and snobby expressions, like James Bond. I’ve […]

Savanna Bristol Assistant Compliance Manager & Flower Purchaser About your Best Bud: Savanna Bristol is a wee bit clumsy; running into things is a hobby of hers. Actually, I’ve seen her come close to death three times in a single shift. And she definitely needs to stay away from sharp objects. The last time we […]

420 Friendly in Durango, Colorado

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

Just about everybody knows that “420” has something to do with pot, and just about everybody knows that “420 friendly” has something to do with businesses that support recreational marijuana use. But do you know where “420” comes from? As it turns out, some kids in California coined the term, but I didn’t know that […]

Best Bud of the Month

Mike Michon Cultivation Manager It came up casually in my conversation with Mike that he’s seen Phish in concert fifty-two times. He said it like it was no big deal, nothing out of the ordinary. But it is, and I stopped him halfway into a new subject so we could talk about it: Me: “Dear […]
