Do I need a medical card to purchase marijuana from The Station?
No. In Colorado, the only thing you need to buy our recreational strains
is a valid photo ID to prove you are over 21. This can be a driver’s
license, state ID, active military card, a valid government-issued passport,
an Indian Tribe card, or a Colorado State permanent residency ID card.
If you are interested in medicinal marijuana, The Station does have the
ability to facilitate doctors’ appointments at an affordable rate
for you to receive your Colorado "Red Card". Come in a visit

How much Cannabis can I buy?
If you are a Colorado resident, state law allows you to purchase up to
an ounce (28 grams) of ganja, per transaction. If you are visiting Colorado
from out of state, you can purchase up to 1 ounce (28 grams) per person,
per transaction, per day. Or you can buy up to 8 grams of concentrates
or 800 mg of Edibles.
What products does The Station offer?
We offer a full range of recreational and medical cannabis strains, including
a variety of indicas, sativas, hybrids and High CBD strains. We take pride
in our wide concentrate selection: from Live Resin to Bubble Hash, Wax
and Shatter. We also stock infused edibles, tinctures, capsules, topicals
and CBD products.

What is the difference between medical and recreational cannabis?
The main difference between medical and recreational marijuana is that
recreational marijuana is taxed more heavily (23-36%), where medical cannabis
is taxed much less. This benefits everybody, especially since most of
the tax revenue goes toward Colorado schools. A second main difference
is the potency limitation set on recreational products; no one package
can exceed 100 milligrams of THC. Medical edibles can far exceed the 100mg
of THC (active component in marijuana) found in high-potency recreational
edibles. Also, Medical Patients can possess more cannabis at one time.
To access medical marijuana, one must have an official recommendation from
a doctor. Obtaining a medical card thereby decreases the cost of our cannabis
and cannabis infused products, and potentially increases how much you
can buy at any one time.
The Station offers a nearly identical product offering no matter whether
you have a medical card or not!
Are out-of-state medical cards accepted in Colorado?
No. Unfortunately Colorado does not have reciprocity on medical marijuana.
Anyone over 21 can still buy recreational marijuana.
Can I smoke in a dispensary or are there shops that have outdoor smoking areas?
As of today, no shops permit the use of cannabis in or around the premises.
In Boulder, it is illegal to smoke (tobacco, marijuana, etc) within 25
feet of the entrance to any building as well as anywhere on Pearl Street
in the business district. It is illegal to consume any cannabis in a public space.
What is the difference between different cannabis plants?
While all strains are unique, there are some key differences between sativas
and indicas. The structure of the plant classifies Indica or Sativa. Indica
- short and stalky bush, Sativa - tall and lanky tree. Cannabis Sativa
generally works best on your head, producing an energized wakefulness
that stimulates creativity and is excellent for daytime stoners. Indica,
on the other hand, are best used for full-body relaxation, help with sleep,
and are perfect for unwinding at night. However, these effects will differ
from person to person.
The Station also offers a number of sativa and indica hybrids. The effects
of these hybrids vary depending on the mixture so it’s best to ask
our professionals to help you find the exact strain you are looking for.
