What: Opening in 2014, Oak Creek’s Blue Heron is known for having one of the best selections of the highest quality flower in northwest Colorado. The small, boutique-style pot shop offers all-organic flower, and the concentrates are locally sourced. The dispensary features a variety of products from farms all over the state, including Binske chocolate bars and concentrates, Honest Marijuana Company’s flower and joints, and Wild Fire, a newer Steamboat company featuring vape pens and concentrates. “We enjoy catering to locals on a first-name basis,” says owner Mark Wellstone, who named the company in honor of a blue heron that always on the water when he went boating with his late friend Matt Lansing. “We want to carry the best of the best.” Look for a new Blue Heron shop to open in Hayden in July.

What: Proud to be owned and operated by females, Tumbleweed—named after the namesake plant its owners saw blowing across the highway when they moved west from Minnesota— began in Parachute, Colo., in 2016. Growing like a weed itself, it’s since rolled across Colorado to include nine dispensaries in Frisco, Edwards, Carbondale, DeBeque, Eagle, Craig and Steamboat (which it formed by purchasing local dispensary Rocky Mountain Remedies in 2019). Its Steamboat team has 12 years of experience managing other dispensaries in Routt County, so is well-versed in understanding the wants of locals and visitors. It proudly serves the Colorado high country with quality green bud, edibles, topicals, CBD products, concentrates and everything in between. (It also has the world’s first drive-thru dispensary.)
