Far north on Broadway, outside of city limits, lives a new dispensary derived from an old favorite.
14er Holistics North has the same comfortable charm and quality products as the original, but is also granted the freedom to sell clones of their delectable strains because it’s not technically in Boulder.
A one-man army, the store is new enough and distant enough to be tended to by just one budtender and at most times and you can often get straight to the bar. That is not likely to be the case for long as 14er’s original store, located at 28th and Mapleton, is getting so much traffic that it is directing waiting customers to its new location.
14er’s medicine is always frosty with THC crystals and priced to sell. Strains are priced at $10.50/gram and $35.00/eighth for guests, and ounces are an affordable $200. The buds are always cured and trimmed to prevent customers from buying excess leafs or stems.
The store also has an outstanding selection of hash to choose from, but quality has its price at $40 a gram. Pre-rolls of varying strains cost $5 or five for $20, which are always a nice holdover when you’re feeling broke. Tax is included in all prices.
Pre-98 Bubba Kush is a strain that many stores stock and many grow incorrectly, but 14er has seemed to perfect it. Offering a heady and lethargic high that is bound to comatose all those who smoke it. It’s called ‘Pre-98’ because its genetics are from the original strain of Bubba Kush, before people started experimenting with the strain to get bigger yields and other effects. Rare and beautiful, this strain is a gem that I enjoy when I need some serious pain relief. It allows patients to relax and get comfortable even with chronic pain.
NYC Diesel is unlike most diesels, and the store did a great job with this sativa dominant hybrid. It has that same diesel sour smell with a hint of lemon and it smokes cleanly with a light taste and smooth smoke. The high is euphoric, motivating and creative. It’s a great strain to smoke with people or during the day if you’ve still got things to do.
It may seem out of the way for Boulderites used to never leaving the hill, but it’s only three miles down Broadway and the benefits of its distance are ready to plant, healthy clones. Some of their most popular strains are available, including: Monkey Bite, Great Northern, Somango, and Double Sour Diesel. Clones are $30 for nonmembers.
14er North is just a door in a long, thin line of them, but once you go in you are welcomed by hand crafted wood bars and warm lighting. It is a wellness center experience where those with questions about their medicine can get knowledgeable information from friendly people. Their quality and professionalism is what brings customers coming back. That, and all their delicious pot.[nggallery id=56]
