Crested Butte Marijuana Top Choices

Take a turn onto Belleview Avenue and you’ll pass all of the Crested Butte marijuana dispensaries. True to this town’s ethos, you’ll find these shops are run by some of the most knowledgeable, respectable, and polite business owners around, with a purpose to serve you.

Since marijuana’s legalization in Colorado on January 1st, 2014, cities and towns across the state have seen recreational dispensaries pop up faster than Starbucks shops. Crested Butte is no exception. Along with our inspiring mountain views, outdoor activities, and small town appeal, curious tourists have also flocked to experience the wide variety of these newly available recreational products. And with this variety comes the inevitable question of which to choose. We’ve set out to answer exactly that with a sampling of the best (alphabetically ordered). Want more info?

Backcountry Cannabis

Walking inside BCC, you’re greeted with friendly staff and usually Planet Earth playing on the big screen. Parker, the General Manager is our go-to person with specific cannabis questions. Knowledgeable on all products, he enthusiastically reveals the science behind each strain. All strains are 100% organic with no pesticides or herbicides, and grown in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Backcountry Cannabis has another store in Breckenridge, and their own personal grow supplies both stores.

Formerly Crested Butte Wellness Center, Backcountry Cannabis Co. offers great prices and a wide variety of product.

Soma is home to some of our favorite signature strains found in the Butte. Not only do they have an incredibly welcoming store and lounge area, but also personable budtenders who are there to answer any questions or help you pick out the perfect cannabis choice for you. Most of the strains on the wall are grown in Crested Butte, and hand selected by their staff. They’ve also just opened a new shop in nearby Gunnison.

One of our favorite things to do at Soma is ask a budtender what their favorite strain or edible of choice is at the moment, and give it a try. They have yet to steer us wrong!
