What makes purple marijuana purple?

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021

Anthocyanins are what make purple pot purple. I wanted to answer that right off the bat without a rambling preamble just in case you googled something about purple weed and came here for a quick answer. But the real reason I’m writing this blog is twofold: one, The Greenery Grow is famous for purple weed […]


$10 Joints in Durango

Friday, August 6th, 2021

Do you know what’s ironic? When weed was legalized here in Colorado, coming up with regulations was left to the same politicians who’d fought to kept marijuana illegal for years. Crazy, right? That’d be like letting a fox watch the chickens if we got rid of coups, but it’s exactly what Colorado did. That’s why […]


How to Roll a Joint

Tuesday, July 13th, 2021

I told my 7th grade English teacher that I’d never use the lessons she taught me about expository speeches—I did mine on “how to play the drums” because I was a band nerd—but I was wrong. Thirty-something years later, it looks like today is the day, because I’m going to teach you how to roll […]


Locals’ Discount in Durango

Saturday, July 10th, 2021

2020 did its best to beat up Durango, but you already knew that. We had lockdowns and a lack of tourism and lost jobs, and our fairgrounds turned into a weird triage unit straight out of a science-fiction movie with a literal drive through for Covid tests and injections. We built walls of plexiglass in […]


Blunt Box in Durango

Friday, June 11th, 2021

Fun fact: the only thing better than a blunt is six of them. And that’s why we’re introducing the Blunt Box! For real, it’s finally here. We’ve been crunching numbers and slogging through the R&D process for this highly anticipated product for quite some time (it’s insanely difficult to get a legal cannabis product past […]


Lighters and Rolling Papers

Friday, May 21st, 2021

When you picture a lighter in your mind, it’s most likely a BIC, but that’s just because it’s always been the cheapest and most prolific lighter out there—it hit the market first in 1973, it was available in five colors, and it sold for $1.49. Isn’t that crazy? The same lighter would cost you around […]


Shake Special in Durango

Friday, May 14th, 2021

“Shake” used to mean something different than it does now. It used to be a gross thing—something I bought when I was a broke and desperate stoner way-back-when. It’d be dry and brown, the remnants of trimming in someone’s basement, but I’d smoke it gladly because it was the best I could find, headache, harsh […]


420 in Durango

Wednesday, April 14th, 2021

I’m not sure there’s anything I like writing about more than 420, and given the traffic my 420 posts get, it’s safe to say that you like reading about 420 as much as I like writing about it. One of our most-read blogs was centered on where the term “420” comes from, and on 420-friendly […]


Best Bud of the Month: Tiffany – Budtender

Monday, April 5th, 2021

If you haven’t heard, our Durango dispensary’s 6th Anniversary is this month (read about all our specials HERE), which makes us the oldest recreational-only dispensary in Durango. But somewhat ironically, we’ve chosen our newest team member, Tiffany, to be your Best Bud for April, because she’s simply awesome despite her short tenure here at The […]


The Greenery 6.0

Saturday, April 3rd, 2021

As it turns out, all the platitudes are true: “if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life,” “time flies when you’re having fun,” and etcetera. I mean honestly, can you believe that The Greenery turns six-years-old this month? Here’s another cliché: “it seems like just yesterday” that we opened […]
