While there’s plenty to be said for smoking in the comfort of your own home, many adult-use consumers also like to venture outside private residences to put a social spin on their cannabis experience.
But even though Colorado has long been a pioneer in the efforts to legalize cannabis, there’s still some confusion about exactly where you can legally enjoy cannabis in Denver.
Recent regulations that would open the door for dispensary tasting rooms and similar operations won’t move forward until 2020 at the earliest, and there are still plenty of legal hoops to jump through.
Luckily, there’s an impressive variety of Colorado companies that have taken a creative approach to incorporate cannabis into their business, offering a unique – and completely legal – option for changing up your marijuana experience.
Best Places to Smoke Legally in Denver
If you’re interested in exploring some of the city’s favorite cannabis-friendly locales, here are our top picks for the best places to legally consume cannabis in Denver.
The Coffee Joint
1130 Yuma Court; thecoffeejointco.com
The Coffee Joint holds the praise-worthy title of becoming Denver’s very first licensed cannabis consumption business, giving customers a laidback and friendly environment where they can partake in their favorite forms of cannabis.
Smoking isn’t permitted, but you can bring other cannabis from home to enjoy at The Coffee joint, including edibles and flowers/concentrates for vaping.
6125 Washington Street; ibakedenver.com
You may have seen iBake Denver in the news as the host of many Denver cannabis events, but it’s also a private cannabis lounge open to adults.
You can sign up for an all-access membership for $12 per day or pay a one-day $3 entrance fee, both of which open the doors for you to hang with friends and enjoy smoking, vaping, or snacking on your favorite cannabis varieties from home.
Kush & Canvases
1130 Yuma Court
Get in touch with your artistic side with cannabis-friendly painting classes from Kush & Canvases. Instead of the usual wine-and-paint nights, Kush & Canvases offers a marijuana-friendly space to flex your creative muscles.
Cannabis consumers and non-consumers alike are welcome, making this a great option for your next date night or friendly get-together.
The International Church of Cannabis
400 S. Logan Street; elevationists.org
