Here’s Why We’re the Best

close-up shot of cannabis flowerDiego Pellicer is the best recreational cannabis dispensary in Denver, Colorado for several reasons:

  • Great variety of strains to choose from
  • A friendly and knowledgeable staff that will answer any questions you may have about our products
  • We offer superior quality and competitive prices on all of our top-shelf strains.
  • Our selection of concentrates is unmatched by any recreational dispensary in Denver.
  • Best of all, we know our product best: where it comes from, how to grow it, and what it can offer you.

A Different Cannabis Shopping Experience

Besides having quality recreational marijuana and some of the friendliest and most knowledgable budtenders around, Diego also offers a unique cannabis shopping experience.

Store InteriorMost dispensaries use the McDonalds approach. No matter where it is located or what the sign on the building says, you know exactly what to expect when you go inside. There’s a counter where you go, place your order, and wait. At Diego, we want our customers to feel like they are part of our family—so we take a different approach.

To begin with, our store is set up more like a showroom than a typical retail store. When you arrive, you are greeted by one of our friendly staff members who takes a moment to get to know you. You’re then guided around the store and shown what we have in stock, from flower to concentrates, edibles, and more. We give customers plenty of time to browse at their own pace before they ever place an order!

The Best Budtenders

If you’ve got a lot of questions, your budtender guide will be there to answer them all. If you would rather be left to browse alone, that’s fine too. Your budtender will be there waiting in the wings just in case any questions do arise.

When you are ready to make your purchase, we take the time to explain all of your options in detail and give advice on best practices for consumption. We also offer a wide variety of accessories, including pipes, grinders, rolling papers, and more!

We are Colorado’s best recreational cannabis dispensary because our staff is knowledgeable about how best to help you choose the right product for your needs.

Quality Cannabis, and Great Specials

cannabis flower in display jarWe’ll be honest. Our daily prices on cannabis products are not the cheapest in town. That’s because we don’t think of ourselves as a discount cannabis dispensary. We pride ourselves on quality and a quality shopping experience for our customers. And we believe that consumers are willing to forego bargain-basement prices in order to get a better shopping experience.

That said, we do offer some great specials and deals. Every week, you can find a new set of deals in our advertisement in Denver’s Westword magazine. If you follow us on social media, we frequently offer specials there as well.

Loyalty Program

If you are a frequent Diego shopper, we also offer a VIP loyalty program. For a small fee, you get a VIP card, which gives you access to our best deals and ongoing discounts on cannabis products and merchandise.

Last but not least, there’s our monthly raffle. Every time you shop at Diego over the course of a month, you get an entry. And the end of the month, we select a winner. In the past, we have given away such great prizes as Broncos tickets, skiing passes, a Playstation 5, and cannabis-themed tours and excursions with the Diego staff.

So even though the best recreational cannabis dispensary in Denver is not the cheapest, we can guarantee you’ll get a better product if that’s what you’re looking for.

If the brick-and-mortar retail experience is not for you, you can also shop for our cannabis online. Marijuana delivery was just recently legalized in Denver, but we have not decided to venture into that territory just yet (maybe soon – check back!), but you can shop our entire inventory on our website.

When you decide what you would like to order, you can make your purchase online. Our staff will get all the items that you ordered and put them in a bag with your receipt stapled to the outside. All you have to do is stop by the dispensary, show your ID, and pickup!

Awards: We’re Not the Only Ones Who Call us the Best Dispensary in Denver

We can’t just call ourselves the best dispensary in Denver without backing it up, right? If it worked like that, any dispensary could just claim that they are the best. Well, as it turns out, we have corroborating evidence.

Westword “Best of Denver”

The aforementioned Westword magazine puts out a popular annual “Best of Denver” issue. Diego has been named the winner in at least two cannabis categories every year since we opened our doors in 2017. These awards include “Best Selection at a Dispensary“, “Best Dispensary for a Lightweight“, “Best Dispensary for a Tourist”, “Best Selection of Concentrates in a Dispensary“, and “Best Mural on a Dispensary.” (It’s pretty cool. You should come see it.)

The CBA Globes

Beyond these local awards, we have also won several honors from the National Cannabis Business Awards. In 2017, we won Budtender of the Year, Executive of the Year, Manager of the Year, and Retail Store of the Year.

In 2018, we won Best Retail Center and Most Valuable Brand.

In 2019 we won the coveted Business of the Year, the association’s top honor.

In 2020 we won … you guessed it … Best Dispensary!

So when we say that Diego Pellicer is the best dispensary in Denver, CO., we have the receipts to back it up. Of course, if you stop by to visit us, you won’t need receipts. You will find out for yourself why we are the best in Denver.

Diego Pellicer plays baseballHistory of the Diego Brand

An article from Westword about the opening of Diego’s Denver location (the second location – the first was in Seattle) gives a great description of our company’s brand and experience. It opens:

“In some families, raising the cannabis plant is a time-honored tradition. Back at the end of the 1800s, farmer Diego Pellicer, who owned one of the largest hemp farms in the Philippines, made products for the Spanish navy. Over a century later, his great-grandson, Jamen Shively, founded a dispensary with his partner, Doug Anderson, and named it in honor his great-grandfather.”

Our goal has been to take this reverence for the past (including an up-scale “throw-back” shopping experience) and the marijuana plant and apply it to a dispensary.

“We wanted to have a high-end dispensary with competitive prices,” says our CEO Niel Demers, “I consider it an affordable luxury. We’ve got a much better customer service experience.”

“A Dispensary You Could Take Your Grandma To”

A common refrain among our management and seasoned staff is that they would like Diego to be “a dispensary that you could take your grandma to.”

The idea behind this concept is that the goal is to create a marijuana retail experience that is unintimidating. To create a place that is equally welcoming to connoisseurs and first-timers.

If you are visiting Colorado, or if you have friends or family that are visiting, for the “legal weed” and would like to try the dispensary experience, our dispensary is the perfect place to go.
