My last Denver review was quite vicious (but fair, IMO) so it's important that we balance that out with a glowing review, in this case the excellent Cataract Sky Kush from Harmony your Gentleman plucked for a tremendous value whilst traipsing along Elati St and stumbling into recreational marijuana dispensary Advanced Medical Alternatives. I don't want you to get the wrong idea about my intentions with everyone's new favorite mountain town!
Advanced Medical Alternatives is a standalone store that, other than the signs proclaiming marijuana for sale, looks like it could otherwise house a small accounting firm. We'll call it Biggles & Rump, because it's late and I'm feeling a bit silly. The interior of AMA is very well lit and feels spacious enough once you're in the backroom, a mere chainlink away.
The lobby didn't stand out, but I wasn't waiting longer than a moment. The budtender was a friendly chap and I enjoyed the chat afforded us by a lack of other customers. As per my usual Denver reviews, I wasn't happy with the flowers I sniffed.
I did pick up a gram of Strawberry Cough for just $10 that smelled faintly of the titular fruit over the typical mountain must I encountered, but it hit harsh. I didn't particularly enjoy it. I was very pleased that this shop does not prepack their flowers!
Harmony's Cataract Sky Kush, on the other hand, was easily one of the best concentrates I found during my trip and a bargain at only $32/gram. That's the same price as the Craft710 which was nice, but kinda tasteless, and less than half of what that horrible Cannabis Maximus garbage sold for at $80/g. My amber wad of Cataract Sky Kush smelled of tropical fruits, just as Harmony's hashmaker's note said it would, and I recognized some floral notes besides.
These profiles come through a bit muted but still clearly present when dabbed and hits smoother than Jeff Sessions' stupid bald head. Ha! While it improved my mood, this strain's main attraction is how well it helps you relax without rendering you couch-locked.
If I had to get something done during the daytime, I could have, but it was far easier to kick back and watch terrible cable at the hotel. Ooo, look, Ancient Aliens! At night, the blissful calm proved a wonderful sleep aid.
Your Gentleman was elated with the Harmony shatter he picked up along Elati Street and this product is highly recommended for your visit to Colorado, you jet-setting gang of gossip girls, you.
While Advanced Medical Alternatives wasn't the flashiest shop I stopped at, their execution of the basics- friendly service, ample space, good prices, selection, and lighting- could teach their competitors a thing or two about running a weed store. Also recommended!
