More than 100 years ago, Englewood medical providers began to help patients in need — it’s no wonder that the city lets medical dispensaries operate with the option of adding recreational services. While nearby Arapahoe County has very limited access to medicine, you can find Denver just a short trip away. Learn more about medical marijuana in Englewood.
The two kinds of marijuana dispensaries in Colorado have distinct purposes and services:
Retail Cannabis Stores: Recreational marijuana establishments serve anyone over 21. Adults from other states also qualify to shop at these locations. Many of the products sold at recreational stores can relieve symptoms. Colorado taxes retail purchases at a rate of 15 percent.
Medical Marijuana Centers: Medical dispensaries take only patients registered with the state. It doesn’t matter if you have a 21+ ID or not. Out-of-state visitors can’t use their medical marijuana cards from home. These locations stock products specifically meant for patients and can sell higher doses of THC. The state taxes medical purchases at a rate of 2.9 percent.
