Walking Raven History
Walking Raven was Denver’s first Medical Marijuana Center to obtain its official business license as a marijuana dispensary in August 2009. On January 18th, we opened our doors to any adult over the age of 21, being among the first handful of stores in Colorado to receive its Retail (recreational) license. Our store was one of the first to open on the now famous “Green Mile” or “Broadsterdam” section of Colorado, known for its high concentration of marijuana storefronts.
Today, we are one of the few small shops with a small group of ownership left, who came into the business on the grassroots level. We have effectively used our business as a platform to change our local community’s perception of cannabis consumers and generate new revenues for the local economy. Our shop has been a model of integrity and sound business practices that are reflected by every staff member in our organization.
We are focused on being on the cutting edge of new products and have ultra-competitive prices because we have built a reputation as a shop that carries only premium grade flower grown by expert cultivators. Our in-house strain Hong Kong Diesel, awarded 1st Place Adult-Use Hybrid and People’s Choice at The Hemp Connoisseur Championship, recently tested over 31% total cannabinoids and is an exclusive stain to The Walking Raven. At the 2014 US High Times Cannabis Cup, our Sour Diesel took home the 3rd People’s Choice Award. Never settle, only shop premium grade.
