Our 4/20 sale is going to be the best one ever, just like this is the shorted blog we’ve ever posted. And two of the best 420 specials we’re running aren’t even on the poster, so get here early. We’re Your Best Buds!
Way back in the day, tobacco shops were called “tobacconists,” and for the most part, they sold loose-leaf tobacco. It would be displayed in large glass jars on the counter, usually decorated with parchment paper labels outlining the leaf’s origin and price. Tobacconists were hallowed establishments, places people would go to socialize and shop simultaneously, and I imagine they smelled wonderful, like a mix of dark wood and earthy tobacco.
But then in 1764, when the first rolling paper was invented in Alcoy, Spain, things started to change. The convenience of a quick cigarette trumped the nostalgia of an ornamental pipe, so pre-rolled tobacco started to take over here in America in the early 1800s. Exactly 100 years after the advent of rolling papers, the US government slapped a federal tax on cigarettes for the first time in 1864, and the rest is history. R.J. Reynolds introduced the 20-cigarette pack in 1913, it quickly became the industry standard, and then all the tobacconists that had once been neighborhood fixtures started disappearing because you could buy quick and easy cigarette packs in every corner store.
Do you see where I’m going with this? Yesteryear, when it came to smokable flower, large glass jars filled with pot were just about all you’d find in a dispensary. They were usually decorated with stylized paper labels listing the loose bud’s strain name, potency, and price. You’d choose the pot you wanted, and then slide into a social situation while the budtender weighed it out (but of course, we’ve always done that ahead of time here at The Greenery because we know you have better things to do than wait for weed).
But now, things are changing. The pre-roll is becoming king, just as the cigarette did, and in our industry, we’re seeing a 60% increase in pre-roll popularity year after year. Joints are quick and easy; they’re portable and convenient—they’re everything their tobacco counterpart once was, so it’s easy to see the future of commercial cannabis: it’s the pre-roll pack.
And that, my friends, is why The Greenery just introduced the Pinner Pack. The Pinner Pack is a little black box that fits perfectly in your pocket or purse, and it contains ten, half-gram joints for a total of 5g flower, but the best part is the price: it’s $39 after tax. Seriously, that’s $39 for 10 joints, which is not something I thought I’d see in my lifetime.
For real, the Pinner Pack is perfect. Full-gram joints can be a bit much if you smoke them by yourself, and they taste gross if you put them out and smoke them later. But with half-gram joints, you don’t have to worry about that. Just pull the Pinner Pack out of your pocket and light one up; it’s the perfect size for dog walks or quick breaks. And frankly, given how much waste the cannabis industry creates, the Pinner Pack gets even better once you realize the child-resistant box is made out of food-grade, biodegradable plastic. We thought of everything.
So, who knows? Maybe someday in the distant future, after dispensaries have disappeared because cannabis is sold everywhere, it’s possible that you’ll be able to find the Pinner Pack at every corner store. Maybe there will be a federal tax on it, and maybe this is just the beginning of something huge. Maybe. But until then, when it comes to the best, most affordable pre-roll pack in Durango, the only place you’ll find The Pinner Pack is at The Greenery, because We’re Your Best Buds!
2020 did its best to beat up Durango, but you already knew that. We had lockdowns and a lack of tourism and lost jobs, and our fairgrounds turned into a weird triage unit straight out of a science-fiction movie with a literal drive through for Covid tests and injections. We built walls of plexiglass in our recreational marijuana dispensary that kept us apart from our friendly customers, and there was even a time when our retail floor was shut down completely and we sold to you through a little window while wearing masks and gloves—it wasn’t fun, and now that it’s over, we’re all doing our best to forget the whole ordeal as we creep back to normalcy.
But during the thick of it, financially, 2020 was much harder for some than it was for others. It was a strange and ironic turn of events to witness, but after one hundred and six years of prohibition, and then after eight short years of legality, dispensaries such as ours were deemed “essential businesses,” and we were allowed to stay open every day of the pandemic while other businesses disappeared; it was sad and vindicating simultaneously. I mean, isn’t that crazy when you really think about it? Ten years ago, recreational marijuana would’ve put a Colorado resident behind bars, but in 2020, those of us who sell it were allowed by the state to keep working while other industries shuttered during a global pandemic because the service and tax revenue we provided was crucial.
So, that’s exactly what we did. We came in every day, masked up, and did our best to supply Durango with craft cannabis, because there’s really nothing better for your soul when you’re locked in your home with nothing but Netflix and your nuclear family for comfort and company. We listened to your stories of boredom and despair through our plexiglass, and we tried diligently to turn the whole town’s frown upside-down. I’d like to think we succeeded to some small degree.
However, that’s all over now. The plexiglass is gone, masks no longer hide our smiles, and it’s back to business: for us, at least. We know that our community is still struggling to recuperate, and we know that on a personal level, many of you faced hardships, both financially and personally. That’s why we’re doing something about it. After all, we love Durango, and I’m not just saying that as a marketer. Our owners are Fort Lewis alumni; our employees all live, work, and play right here; 100% of our business is based out of Durango, and this town is our home. We love it truly, and we take care of our home, just like you do. So, here’s some good news after all the bad:
Durango’s Best Buds just got better!
We just lowered most of our edible and concentrate prices, but we lowered all our Flower prices, and we still have the best pot in town thanks to our boutique grow. This made our daily deals—like Marvelous Monday, wherein all full-priced flower is 15% off—even better. But the piece de resistance is our new Locals’ Discount. It’s something we’re doing just for Durango and our neighboring communities right when it’s needed most. From now on, we’ll check your driver’s license, and if you’re from Durango or Bayfield, or even as far out as Hermosa, you’ll receive 10% off all full-priced items in our shop all day, every day (may not be combined with other deals or specials).
Frankly, besides doing this for our community, we owe it to you. You’re the ones who’ve kept our doors open and our mission alive by shopping here day after day, and as Durango’s first recreational-only dispensary, we’ve always known how important our local base is. So, thank you. Our doors are always open to this this town, through thick and thin, because We’re Durango’s Best Buds!
YES! Honestly, do you think something like a global pandemic could shut us down? Nope. We fought for years for the right to sell marijuana legally, so we’re going to do whatever it takes to keep on keeping on through all of this. In fact, this whole ordeal has made us step up our game, and if you read what follows, I’ll prove to you that The Greenery is the best Durango dispensary to shop at during all this craziness.
For one, we haven’t changed our hours in the slightest. We’re still open seven days a week—9am to 9:30pm on weekdays, 10am to 9:30pm on Saturday, and 10am to 7pm on Saturdays—and that’s not something we plan on changing. Secondly, not only are we fully stocked for the holidays, but we’re bringing over new strains from The Greenery Grow, and we’ve added quite a few new items to our shelves, including the best solventless vape cartridges on earth from Dab Logic and wonderfully delicious edibles from 7Sacred. And thirdly, we aren’t letting the dark winter dampen our specials—for all of December, all 1906 products are 40% off, all Dixie products are 20% off, all EvoLab and AiroPro vapes will be 20% off, and we have select grams of Moroccan Hash for $20 out-the-door, which is well over a 40% discount. Awesome, right?
But here’s the best part: we’ve completely redesigned our retail floor with a full plexiglass barrier between you and our budtenders. We have all sorts of fancy new features like microphones you can speak through to stay safe, we require masks in our store for both our staff and customers per the city’s order, and we’re doing everything we can as an essential business to keep you secure throughout this time, because it really does matter to us. But even if you’re still uncomfortable walking into a store with other shoppers, we’ve got you covered because we have online ordering, or you can simply call us at (970) 403-3710 and place a call-ahead order to pickup at our convenient curbside window, making it so you never have to come inside.
Nobody else in town can say all that. We have the largest dedicated parking lot, we have a discrete location (208 Parker Ave), and we have plenty of holiday deals, which makes us the best (and I’m not just saying that because I work here). So, if you’re not comfortable with the Covid-19 steps other shops in town have taken, please, come give us a chance. We promise to give you the best imaginable customer service for as long as La Plata County is suffering though Covid-19 restrictions, because We’re Your Best Buds!
Technology is insane these days. It’ll make me sound old, but I remember going weeks without taking a picture of anything because cameras used to be a luxury, but now, it seems like most people cant even make it through lunch without taking a picture of their sandwich. Is that weird, or is it just me? But really, I get it. Everything is so easy now thanks to smart phones and smart watches and smart everything else, which is something taken for granted by everyone except for geezers such as myself who remember the days when you had to memorize telephone numbers as opposed to saying, “hey Siri, call my mom.”
And it’s no different in a modern Durango dispensary. We utilize just about every technological advancement imaginable: you can make online orders to pick up at our convenient curbside window via our menu HERE, you can enter your email to stay connected with us at the bottom of our Homepage, but more importantly, you can take advantage of our Loyalty Program by signing up HERE.
Isn’t that awesome? If you’re a member of our Loyalty Program, you build points with every dollar spent, and we’re not stingy, so the rewards we dole out are wonderful. After 100 points, you can buy a 1g pre-roll for $1, after 200 points, you can choose any gram of flower on our shelves for $4.20, after 250 points, you can take half-off any edible in the building, after 400 points, you can take 50% off any concentrate (including cartridges), and after 500 points, you get the mac-daddy of all rewards, which is any eighth of flower you want for $10.
But as an added bonus, members of our Loyalty Program are the first to hear about our specials, such as the “buy one, get one for a dollar” special we’ve been running all month on our new Wyld Gummies (they’re my new favorite). See what I mean about “wonderful”? That deal alone would’ve saved you twenty-three bucks, but you have to know about deals before you can enjoy them; that’s where the “changes” you read about at the top of this blog come in.
Just like Peter Parker’s uncle said, “with great power comes great responsibility,” and the power of technology is not to be underestimated, so we have a few responsibilities that need to be addressed. For instance, we need to protect your peace and privacy, and that means not sending you texts unless you want them (but you’d be crazy not to, which I’ll address in a second). And that means you have to tell us you want to receive texts by signing a special form, which is pretty important.
So, as of right now, even if you’re already a member of our Loyalty Program, it means that you won’t receive any texts from us whatsoever, meaning you’ll never hear about our specials, and you won’t be able to check your account balance. Trust me, I know it sounds weird to “want” texts from a company such as ours, but I promise that I won’t bombard your phone with annoying and unnecessary texts—I’ll only send you the important stuff that helps you save on your favorite thing, cannabis.
So, I’d like your signature, because to us, you’re just as important as any celebrity. And frankly, you should want to give it to me because I love sending out random coupons that you wouldn’t believe, and you’ll never get them if you don’t sign up. But don’t worry, we’ve made it ridiculously easy: simply show the QR code that was the picture for this blog to your phone and it’ll take you to a page where you can sign your name (see what I mean about technology being insane?), or if it’s easier for you, just click HERE and follow the steps. Once you’re done, you’ll be back in the know when it comes to saving money, which means a lot to us because We’re Your Best Buds!
Marijuana for Valentine’s Day
You clicked the button saying you were over 21 to enter our site, which means it’s safe to assume we’re all adults, so I’m just going to come out and say it: you have no idea how often sex comes up in my everyday conversations with customers. They’ll lean in across the counter and give me an embarrassed look before saying something like, “so, which strain is good for… you know what?” and after a couple years behind the counter, trust me, yes, I “know what.” That being said, it’s a difficult question to answer because everyone is so different, so what works for someone per “you know what” might not work for someone else, and oddly enough, I’ve found that gender plays a huge role.
Now, I’m about to make a few generalizations, but please don’t think I subscribe to stereotypes—it’s just that the feedback I’ve received from customers supports what I’m about to say, so don’t judge me. Here it is: when it comes to cannabis for sex, I’ve found that women prefer indica strains as where men prefer the sativa designation. I’m sure that sounds weird, but if you think about it, it makes sense. Sativa strains are known for the energetic vigor they can give smokers, which is exactly what dudes are looking for, but sativa strains can also get in your head and make you feel a bit self-conscious, which is the last thing a woman wants during intimacy. And when it comes to indica strains, the soothing body high is enticing to the ladies, but the deflating relaxation is a bit scary for the dudes. See what I mean?
But really, I’ve gotten off track. The real reason I started writing this is that a customer came in this morning and asked if we had any upcoming Valentine’s Day specials, and the gentleman who came in right afterwards asked for suggestions per which marijuana products he should put in his wife’s Valentine’s Day gift basket. So, I figured I’d answer both questions in a blog just in case a few of you might have the same questions, but I wanted to first answer the “you know what” question in writing in case you’ve been too embarrassed to ask, and because it’s apropos given the meaning behind Valentine’s Day. But I digress; I’ll get back on track.
Let’s start with the Valentine’s Day specials: starting Friday, 2/14, and ending Sunday, 2/16, we’re offering a 25% discount on all Sweet CO2 products in our Durango dispensary. This means you can save 25% on CO2 oil vape cartridges, 1g CO2 oil syringes, and CBD capsules throughout the Valentine’s Day weekend. It’s a Sweet deal; get it?
Also starting on Valentine’s Day is a 25% discount on Binske gummies, making these 100mg THC gummies $18 out the door. Plus, they come in a fancy reusable tin. This deal runs through February 28th.
And there’s more. Since Valentine’s Day is on a Friday, if you spend $50 before tax, you can pick up a 1g joint for $1. And our monthly specials are good on Valentine’s Day as well, so you can still take advantage of our “buy one, get one half-off” deal on Altus Tablets, and you can still take 30% off Aliviar lotion, just in case you’d like to give your partner a foot rub with cannabis-infused lotion on the special day.
There. That answers the first question I got today, so, now onto the “which cannabis products would make a good Valentine’s day gift for my wife?” question. And yes, I’m going to focus on what to buy for women, not for men, because men are easy: buy them something that’ll get them high, and you’ll be good to go. But women? That’s a little trickier. I mean, if you got your lady friend a gram of shatter for Valentine’s Day, yeah, she might like it if she’s the dabbing type, but most women I know would think you phoned in your gift selection, so you’ll need to try harder. But please don’t second guess your decision to shop for your partner at a dispensary, because I promise it can be romantic, and I promise that a huge percentage of the women out there would prefer our marijuana flower over flowers, so you’ve come to the right place. And to take the guesswork out of the equation, I went ahead and came up with five gift ideas that are sure to please (you’re welcome). Here you go.
The best marijuana gifts for Valentine’s Day.
1.) Foria Pleasure
It’s always a bit awkward to answer the “what is Foria?” question when it pops up in our dispensary after someone sees it sitting on the shelf, so I’m glad I get to do it in writing: Foria is a THC-infused “arousal oil” that’s formulated for women. This is taken directly from Foria’s website, so these are their words not mine, but it’s said that Pleasure “enhances tactile sensations while decreasing tension, discomfort, and dryness,” so it’s obvious why the Foria Pleasure would fit well in a Valentine’s Day gift basket.
2.) 1906 Love Beans
These are dark chocolate covered coffee beans, and they’re awesome. Granted, the caffeine might keep you up a night, but who knows? Maybe that’s what you’re looking for on Valentine’s Day. Anyway, each Love Bean delivers 5mg THC/CBD that’s water-soluble for rapid absorption, but more importantly, these beans are infused with four different “plant medicines;” that’s where the “Love” comes from. The plant medicines are Damiana, Muira Puma Catuba, Ashwagandha, and Theobromine. Now I can’t cite any peer-reviewed studies to prove the effects of these additives, so please take this with a grain of salt, but these compounds are supposed to increase everything from stamina to libido, which goes hand-in-hand with the gift above, so our Valentine’s Day basket is off to a good start.
If I have to tell you why massage oil would make a good valentine’s Day gift, you’re probably hopeless, so I won’t get into that. But this stuff is wonderful—the oil itself is perfect for massages, and it’s packed with tons of THC and CBD for a little something extra. This one is a no-brainer.
I know it’s a cliché to give your Valentine a box of chocolates, but what about a box of chocolates that gets you high? That’s next level, and you could even put a new twist on the “flowers and chocolates” motif by gifting marijuana “flower” and these chocolates. Fun, right? And the flavors available in these hand-painted truffles are insane: Juniper and Lemon, Burnt Caramel, Earl Grey and Honey, Hazelnut, Passion Fruit, and Tiramisu.
And if you’re looking for the “flower” portion of the aforementioned “flowers and chocolates” theme, I’d go with Blue Dream—we grow it and sell it, and ours is the best. Remember what I said about men and women versus sativa or indica? Well, Blue Dream is a perfect hybrid; it lives in the goldilocks zone in between the two designations. It’s relaxing for the ladies, but not too much for the guys—it’s stimulating for the gentlemen, but not too thought-inducing for the gals. And frankly, it’s better to buy one strain for both partners instead of one for each, because smoking together before you “get together” is less isolating than smoking different strains apart. Know what I mean?
And that’s that! Please come see us at 208 Parker Avenue for that perfect cannabis-related Valentine’s Day gift (and if you’re single and you’d rather spend the special day high than sober, you should come see us, too). Either way, we’ll have plenty of specials and perfect gifts for your day of love, because We’re Your Best Buds!
If you’re a regular reader, I hope you’re not getting tired of these promotional pieces because I know I’ve been throwing quite a few at you. We’ve had November Deals and Black Friday Deals and a couple random deals thrown in for good measure, and I know it’s a lot. But then again, every single one of these blogs is designed to save you money, so I don’t feel that bad. And frankly, these things are fun to write. I’m 40, so I come from the days when there was no such thing as a “special” on marijuana, let alone holiday discounts, so every time I write one of these, it feels like I’m normalizing legal marijuana, and that’s a good thing. So, without further ado, here’s a list of all the deals you’ll find in our Durango dispensary this December:
1.) We started this first deal on Black Friday, but since it went so well, we’re going to keep it going until we sell out of supplies. So, if you come in and buy any two Stillwater products, you can snag a Ripple Relief or a box of Honey Lavender gummies for $1.
2.) We’re offering a “2 for $40” deal on all our Dixie gummy packs and milk chocolate bars, and if you buy these products normally, you know that’s a spectacular deal. Usually, it’d cost you $48 for two of these products, so you’ll be able to save more than 16% throughout December if you buy in bulk.
3.) From 12/15 through 12/21, we’re running a BOGO 50% off deal on all locally produced Sweet Cartridges. Last month, we ran this special for just one day, and it was insane, so we decided to see what would happen if we did it for a whole week (it’ll probably be more insanity).
4.) And then the next week, from 12/22 though 12/28, we’ll be running a BOGO 50% off deal on all Incredibles products, because we didn’t want to leave you edible lovers in the lurch.
5.) This one is my favorite because it still blows my mind that you can walk into a dispensary and buy a gift card for someone who can then come in later to use it on marijuana. For real, isn’t that crazy? These things are bona fide gift cards with magnetic strips and everything, just like the ones sold at restaurants, and I love that we have a cannabis version. Anyway, if you come in and buy a $25 gift card for someone, we’ll sell you two, full-gram joints for $10, which comes out to 50% off. See what I mean? That guy I used to meet in parking lots never did anything like that for me!
There; that covers it. But I also want you to know that even though we’re packing December full of savings, we’re still going to honor all of our daily deals that you can read about HERE. We’re still offering a 20% discount on everything in the store to veterans, all day every day, and the same goes for those of you who have valid Colorado Medical Marijuana cards. And yes, I’d imagine that another deal of some sort pops up sometime during the month, because when it comes to saving you money on marijuana this December, We’re Your Best Buds!
Yes, we’re going to have Black Friday specials, and I mean, why not? We do everything else that a regular retail shop does, from providing coupons to giving birthday specials, so who says we can’t run a Black Friday special or two? And we’re not the only ones because quite a few of our vendors have agreed to run specials with us, but of course, since this is the cannabis industry, many of them are calling the day after Thanksgiving “Green Friday.”
At first, I thought is was a bit cheesy and cliché, but now, I kind of like it. The “Black” in “Black Friday” connotes a dark day of misery, fighting the lines in department stores just to scoop up “deals” in a frenzy of consumerism, and that’s not what cannabis is about. It’s about enjoying the plant and the relaxation in can provide, it’s about community and natural relief, it’s about honoring our roots and reveling in the fact that prohibition is over. But we must be realistic and admit that we’re a retail operation, plain and simple, which goes hand-in-hand with specials, which is a truth that’s spreading across the nation. Actually, did you know that residents in Michigan will be able to buy recreational marijuana starting December 1st? They’ve joined the team, and they’ll get to walk the line between consumerism and the holistic nature of marijuana just like the rest of us, which is exciting.
I just hope they remember what it’s all about, because we got where we are today thanks to the community and culture that surrounds cannabis, and an easy way to do that is to embrace the cheesiness and call the day “Green Friday.” But regardless of what you call it, the deals we’re running that day are simply spectacular, and I promise that the day after Thanksgiving will be a fun one in our Durango dispensary. The people in our lines will be much happier than the ones standing in line at Walmart, because nothing at that “super store” gets you high. But I digress; let’s get into our specials:
1.) I put together a spectacular gift basket (making marijuana gift baskets might be my calling), and we’re going to have a no-purchase-necessary drawing. So, even if you planned on staying home on Black Friday just like you would during the zombie apocalypse, I’d recommend coming into our shop and dropping your name in the basket, because it doesn’t cost a thing.
2.) Just because it’s Black Friday doesn’t mean that we’re going to put our regular November Deals on hold, so you’ll still be able to pick up two Binske Gummies for $40, or two ABV Disposable Vape Pens for $60.
3.) And we’re still going to honor our regular Friday Deal as well even though we have a ton of other specials, so if you spend $50 before tax, we’ll sell you a one-gram joint for $1.
4.) Dixie has joined in the fun, so on the 29th, you’ll be able to take advantage of a “buy one, get on half-off (BOGOHO?) with all the Dixie gummies, mints, and straight-up milk chocolates.
5.) We’re running a 30% off deal on Altus Tablets, and frankly, this product is awesome. The Altus tablets come in either Sativa or Indica, they’re as discrete as an edible gets, the shelf life is long if you don’t consume regularly, and each pack of tablets provides 100mg THC for only $16.80. This deal is bonkers (I hope that didn’t make me sound like a used car salesman).
6.) We’re running another BOGOHO deal on Sweet CO2 Cartridges and Syringes. This means you’ll be able to scoop up two locally produced 500mg carts for $60, and if you were paying attention, you’ll realize that taking advantage of this deal alone will get you a $1 joint, which is also bonkers.
7.) This deal is a good one because it starts on Black Friday, but it won’t stop until supplies run out: if you buy any two Stillwater products, you can snag a Ripple Relief or a box of Honey Lavender gummies for $1. Yes, that’s one dollar.
8.) And lastly, all our Green Cross products will be 30% off, which is huge. This deal applies to all sorts of edibles including the CannaPunch drinks, Highly Edible gummies (which are vegan), and the Stroopwafels from Dutch Girl (which come in caramel or strawberry, and I can’t stop eating these things), and the Nordic Goddess Salve and Wrangler Relief.
Man… this is the first time I’ve written down all our deals at once, and looking at the list, it seems a bit crazy, but then again, that’s what Black (or Green) Friday is about, right? We’re offering savings on everything from drinks, edibles, salves, vapes, and flower, so no matter how you like to consume, we’ve got you covered. Just remember to acknowledge how special it is to be able to buy marijuana legally while you’re rolling in the savings. Either way, even on Black Friday, We’re Your Best Buds!
Please remember that discounts and deals cannot be combined.
Retail establishments always seem to rush the holidays, and it seems to get worse year after year. Know what I mean? Pumpkins and Halloween decorations appeared at the grocery stores this year in early August, and even though the holiday hasn’t yet arrived, I saw the same decorations on clearance yesterday to make room for the Christmas stuff. The stores keep jumping ahead to push products associated with what’s on the horizon instead of what’s happening now, and the consumerism behind it all makes the holidays fly by when we should be taking our time with the season to savor each individual holiday. That’s what it’s all about.
In that vein, I feel a bit guilty about this post because cobwebs still adorn our Durango dispensary, yet here I sit, writing about the deals that are coming next month. Granted, that’s only one week away so it’s not like I’m jumping the gun like the stores already selling fake Christmas trees (yes, they’re already here), but I’m still going to keep December’s deals to myself to slow things down a bit (that, and I’m not sure what we’re doing in December, so it’s not like I could tell you anyway). So, here’s most of what’s happening this November at The Greenery (I say most because the holidays wouldn’t be holidays without surprises):
1.) We’re running a “2 for $40” special on Binske gummies (which would usually cost you $48, so this deal is awesome). Just so you know, when it comes to edible companies, Binske is as good as they get. In fact, Leafly named Binske their “edible brand of the year,” Binske is now the largest marijuana brand in the world (ranked by territory served), and the company has even been featured in Forbes magazine. Binske takes quality to a higher echelon with their craft edibles, and the artwork on their packaging is next level. Their gummies are vegan and delicious, so they fit everyone’s needs, and frankly, we couldn’t be happier about the deals this November because these gummies are newer than most, and plenty of people are about to discover something awesome when they take advantage of this sale.
2.) We’re also running a “2 for $60” deal on the ABV disposable vape pens (for which you’d usually pay $70). Now, before I get into this one, I want you to know that we’re aware of all the bad news that’s out there regarding vape pens, but ABV went so far as to send us a letter detailing the additive-free formula of their ethanol-extracted oil, and if you’re worried, please come in and ask to read it. Anyway, each of these disposable pens contains 300mg of terpene-enriched oil that’s potent and wonderful. If you’re traveling and you don’t want to invest in a complete vape set up with a battery and cartridge, a disposable is the way to go. That, and the only thing better than one disposable is two of them, which is why this deal is so awesome.
And that’s that. We’ll get extra-festive and run a Black Friday special, so make sure you’re enrolled in our Loyalty program for the exclusive details. Also, we will indeed do something special for December because the entire month is the cornerstone of the holiday season, but you’ll need to wait to see what it is (because I have to wait, too). Either way, please come see our dispensary this holiday season because the munchies make any Thanksgiving feast better, I promise that gifts bought here will please anyone on your list (so long as they’re 21+), and because We’re Your Best Buds!
Insider information makes everyone feel special. It lets you know what you’re getting into, it gives you a secret to share, and it makes you feel like a prescient part of the team. But recently, I’ve realized that I’ve been a bit covetous of my insider information when I should be sharing it freely. Point in case, we’re running a ridiculously good deal on one of our edible brands right now (I’ll give you the details in a moment), and one of our regulars who loves this brand came in, found out about the deal, and then said something like, “why didn’t you tell me sooner?!” Well, he had a good point, so this week, I’m going to tell you about all the deals we have planned up until November so you can be in the know.
Let’s start with right now—for the entire month of September, we’re running a “buy 2, get 1 free” deal on all Stillwater products, and these things are awesome. I’ve written more about this before (go HERE for more details), but basically, there are two types of edibles these days. The first type, which everyone has tried, is lipid soluble: the THC in these products needs to bind with fats before being processed in your liver, which is why the full high can take up to two hours to kick in. The second type is water-soluble: edibles in this category contain microencapsulated cannabinoids that permeate the semi-permeable barriers in your cell walls, which sounds fancy, but all it means is that the full high can kick in within 30 minutes, which is game-changing.
All Stillwater edibles are water-soluble, so if you want to try something new, now is the time, and there are six different products included in the September sale. Three of them are gummies (Blood Orange, which delivers 5mg THC per serving, Green Tea Mango, which delivers 2.5mg THC and CBD per serving, and Honey Lavender, which delivers 5mg CBD and 0.25mg THC, which is perfect for people looking for a high-free CBD experience). And the other three products are different forms of Ripple, which is a tasteless, odorless, instantly-dissolvable powder that can be added to any food or drink. This product revolutionized the edible game because it’s fast acting and discrete, and in comes in three ratios just like the gummies: the Pure 10 delivers 10mg THC, the Balanced version delivers 5mg THC and CBD, and the Relief delivers 10mg CBD and 0.5mg THC.
Alright… that was all stuff everybody already knows, so let’s look into the future (please imagine hearing mystical sounds). Later this month from 9/15 to 9/21, we’re going to run a deal wherein you can save 25% on all Lucky Turtle products, which is huge! Lucky Turtle’s products are as good as they get, and we carry three of their tinctures (a 60:1 CBD/THC, a 1:1 THC/CBD, and a pure THC option), their CO2 oil refill syringes, and their single-serving honey packets (which are by far my favorite single-serving edibles because they contain 10mg THC/CBD, organic honey, and nothing else). But the reason I said this deal is “huge” is that Lucky Turtle makes some of the best vape oil out there, and during this week, you can pick up a 1000mg refill syringe for $45 after tax, which is a ludicrous deal given this oil’s quality (or you can pick up their Restore tincture, which contains more than 600mg CBD, for $82.50, which is bonkers).
Let’s go even further into the future (imagine more mystical sounds) to look at October. For one, our Durango dispensary will be decorated with all sorts of skeletons and cobwebs because Noah is a Halloween freak, but more importantly, all our Green Dot products will be 10% off for the entire month. All you really need to know about Green Dot is that they make the best concentrates on earth (Leafly magazine called Green Dot’s cartridges the “holy grail,” and they weren’t wrong). We sell Green Dot’s full-spectrum Live Resin and Live Batter, both of which are butane-extracted concentrates made from the best fresh-frozen flower imaginable, and we sell their 500mg FSE cartridges, which really are better than anything else out there (having one of these with you is like having a dab rig in your pocket).
Boom! Now you know what’s coming down the pipe (pun intended) in our pot shop. I’m not going to tell you what’s happening during December because some secrets need to be kept (or, more accurately, I don’t know), so stay tuned, but all you really need to know is that we’re always running an awesome deal because The Greenery is the best Durango dispensary, and because We’re Your Best Buds!
