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?
