How many times have you heard this? “I loved that visit to the gas station. They had this amazing soda, delicious edibles, beautiful display shelves, a really chill environment, and some super cute checkout girls!” Probably never, would be my wager. Now if we’re talking about dispensaries and you swap out the word “soda” for “Witches Weed”, I would simply assume you’re talking about Lucy Sky Dispensary, a recreational and medicinal dispensary in Denver, Colorado. I paid my first visit to a Lucy Sky Dispensary only a week ago. Having sampled some of their products from their wholesale grow, I knew already that I was in store for some amazing quality buds. What I didn’t know was how much fun the Lucy Sky crew would be, and how vast their selection of products was.
I took to travel on yet another unseasonably warm day and made my way to the Wash Park area in search of funky skunky chronic. It took me a minute to pin down the exact location of Lucy Sky Dispensary. I didn’t know when I set out, but Lucy Sky is housed smack dab on top of The Wash Park Grille right off of Mississippi and Gaylord Street. After a preliminary circle around the block, I went in for my attack run and was able to claim victory in the form of a parking spot out front. Gear in tow, I found the entrance and made my way up the stairs to Lucy Sky. Note for anyone with disabilities, you do need to go up stairs to get to this Lucy Sky Dispensary. If you’re looking for a wheelchair accessible Lucy Sky, check out their location off of Broadway. I walked up the somewhat narrow staircase and entered into a really swanky waiting area with two comfy arm chairs, a trickle of light shining in the front window, and Shawna holding down the front desk. After getting the go-ahead for reviewing I entered the bud floor where the minty magic happens and dreams do come true. I met up with the rest of the crew on duty for the day Haley, Jake, and Madeline. As I started to investigate the open boutique-style floor Madeline gave me a quick rundown on what makes Lucy Sky so unique. For starters, Lucy Sky is more involved with the community than your average run-of-the-mill cannabis curators. As Madeline explained, not only do they participate in community outreach programs (activities like delivering stuffed animals to the children’s museum) but they also get down to real business and employees at Lucy Sky, like Madeline, even do their part working at the homeless shelter. Apparently, Lucy Sky is in not only in the department of selling smiles but they are also keen on donating smiles as well! Not to tarry too long, Madeline moved back to the bud counter and started to give me a rundown on their hefty selection of strains, concentrates, and edibles.
I stood on the recreational side of the dispensary and was staring down a selection of 29 different strains on the shelf. In case you’re new to the dispensary realm, I’ll tell you now, that’s a very formidable selection. What makes these strains even more unique is that they were all cultivated using organic growing methods. Madeline picked a couple buds for me to really investigate Double Dream and Witches Weed. While I’ve been around the proverbial weed block, I still never know what strains I’ll encounter along the way, in this case, I’d never crossed paths with Double Dream before. Double Dream is the combo of Blue Dream and Dreamstar. This gorgeous hybrid strain is loaded with trichomes and gives off a robust and uniquely earthy aroma that is accentuated perfectly with a sugary sweet scent that seems to stick in the nose.
Witches Weed, a strain I’m quite familiar with, was looking quite dashing as well. Coated in its finest powdery white coat and sporting some lovely hairs, Witches Weed gave off a unique odor that at first smelled a little cheesy to me. After taking a few turns with Madeline whiffing the jar, it was narrowed down to a slight chem odor thanks to Witches Weed’s heritage. Madeline also mentioned that “Witches Weed is a staff favorite since it affects each of [them] differently.” Last, but not least in the bud department, Lucy Sky also keeps on hand a variety of strain-specific pre-rolls if you find yourself in the mood. Moving down the shelves, Madeline took me over to peruse their concentrate and edible selection next.
The concentrate selection at Lucy Sky was certainly nothing to
