Purple Dragon Is Killer

I first heard about The Grasshopper when I was looking up potent edibles in Colorado. A few people spoke highly of their Space Cake brownie so I went to check it out. The store owner is great, the prices are great, and the bud is great. Before I started the weed tour The Grasshopper was my go-to dispensary. I bought this Purple Dragon for $14/gram (less than $50 an eighth) and, as usual, was very impressed. The first thing I noticed about this weed was how well trimmed it was and how great it looked overall, which helped me in purchasing it. It was nearly all purple, only showing a few hints of green, and covered in white trichomes. The nugs themselves were very dense which made my eighth look like a gram. This Purple Dragon smelled fruity and similar to a lot of other purple strains I’ve purchased. Though indica dominant (Purple Erkle X Blue Dragon (DJ Shorts’ Blueberry X Diesel)), this variety had an uplifting high. I have heard that white trichomes indicate a lesser content of other cannabinoids like CBN and CBD, which can give the couch-lock effect, so that makes sense. The buds were cured well; they smoked great and left a white ash. The stems were pretty thick, but for how dense and how much actual weed hung off of them, I found it acceptable. Once again, The Grasshopper has gotten me stoned pain free and I love it.

Quality Medicine & Friendly Staff

As you are driving down Mississippi Avenue in Denver you will see a bright yellow two-story building on the south side of the road, just east of South Tejon Street. This is the home of Southwest Alternative Care and you really cannot miss it! The building is shared, but there is never a problem parking in the front lot or on the side street. I love the branding that the new owners & management team have done for this operation, from the giant banner when you walk in, to the rug on the floor; the iconic SW Alternative Care logo is one that you will remember.

Once inside the dispensary you can tell that they have given the old place a face lift with fresh paint, new flooring, and a much needed overall revived look and feel. Of course they have a waiting room, comfortable couch, giant television, etc, but that stuff is obviously secondary to why you are really there. SW Alternative Care really hits the nail on the head when it comes to variety, quality, and price of the medicine that they provide.

There are roughly 20 strains to choose from at all times, including 8 house strains known as Preserve. The Preserve branded buds include the ever popular Violator Kush and, like all of the herb found here, they max out at $45 per eighth. SW Alternative Care even carries a few jars of medical marijuana that sell for $35 per eighth! Beyond the buds, they carry hash, glass pipes, ganja infused sodas, and a truly hefty selection of edibles.

Also, if you like to make edibles yourself, this place offers Epic Bud which is sold as a one-gram pack of THC infused bud and from what we hear it is perfect to bake with.

Recently we were able to sample a few bowls of the Hawaiian strain and we were not let down! Read our review of the Hawaiian and learn about this smooth and fruity smoke.

Not many dispensaries in the Denver metro area have the passion and drive to create (and pull off) a truly unique experience for their patients, but that is what sets SW Alternative Care apart from the competition. This place is always running specials, hosting events, and taking the dispensary experience to the next level.

We suggest that you do yourself a favor and stop in soon to see what Southwest Alternative Care can do for you. We trust that you will be pleased!

Just Like Fresh Cut Fruit

This Hawaiian, from Southwest Alternative Care, is sure to get your head where it needs to be. Hawaiian is a Sativa originating from, well, Hawaii. The genetics were stabilized by crossing plants with desirable traits to produce consistent offspring that were more flavorful and potent. This is what I had the privilege of medicating on and reviewing tonight.

The first thing I noticed about these buds, before even looking at them, was the aroma. They smelled mellow, like fresh cut fruit. The smell was not too pungent, but very enjoyable. The Hawaiian buds were a light green color and heavily frosted with trichomes. I also noticed quite a few long orange hairs peeking through their calyx clusters. The buds had been trimmed well, leaving only a few leaves that were also trich-covered. One complaint would be that the main stem on the nugs were large, but when you ripped off a chunk to pack a bowl there were only a few small stems to sort out. These buds were fairly dense for a Sativa, but broke up easily.

The smoke itself was smooth and fruity on the exhale which was very enjoyable and the high produced from the Hawaiian is fantastic. The head high was strong, but I was not unfocused throughout the duration, which lasted a few hours. These Hawaiian buds were very pleasant to smoke and I would love to get this strain again.
