Sara was super friendly and super helpful.
Great quality bud and edibles, specially the Terrapin Turtle Bites!
Thus far, the best prices in Telluride, with plenty of options.
The Rec room had plenty of beautiful glass for sale in addition to some less expensive, get you through the weekend, pieces. Nice, spacious waiting room and plenty of standing room around the counter. ATM inside too!!
Thank you Sara and Alpine Wellness for an awesome dispensary experience.
always a friendly, awesome helpful staff on duty to help me find what i'm looking for. clean, organized location, great quality bud, you definitely get what you pay for
This is my favorite dispensary in town. I have lived here for 7 years and Alpine is by far my go to when I'm in need. Their bud quality is excellent at least on the medical side and very affordable prices for top shelf medicine. Very friendly staff and knowledgeable. Always welcome with a smile. Alpine is where it's at.

Been to this shop several times and will continue to return...
I've been to all the shops in Telluride and many in other CO cities, and I have to say this is one of the best, most consistent experiences I've had buying weed.
The second time I walked in the door the girl at the front desk remembered my name and warmly welcomed me, checked my ID (as they are required to do every time), and sent me immediately into the shop with no wait.
I've visited during busy times and the staff is quick & efficient, while still taking time to answer questions and make recommendations. I've also been there during slower times and had both of the bud tenders absolutely crack us up for a solid 5 minutes, then flip the switch back to super-serious and knowledgeable when it came to answering my many questions about smokables, edibles, CBDs and all things cannabis-related.
These guys know their stuff--and without coming off as condescending to those who aren't particularly schooled in the world of marijuana. This shop has an "old friends" vibe that makes you want to come in just to hang out.
As far as the selection, they easily have the best in the area--
Beautifully cured bud that is grown locally, (love the Candyland and SFV OG), their own line of delicious and effective edibles; also made locally (try the Hippie Chow!), tons of cool swag (CO apparel as well as their own jars, shirts, etc), topicals, tinctures, and some of the coolest glass i've ever seen....
This is my favorite store to bring my out-of town friends to show off how awesome Telluride is!
In an ever evolving industry, Alpine Wellness is a leader for sure in recreational/medical cannabis retail. I love the knowledge and friendliness of staff, the welcoming fun vibe, the colorful/flowy renovation of the shop, and oh yeah, the tasty bud!!!
I was pleased about the retirement of waivers and id badges that one had to fill out/wear initially in January, but walk in today and it's a simple ID check at the reception desk and you're in to shop hassle free!
Neat streamlined displays of marijuana essentials when you wander into the actual shop area. Flower galore, rolling papers, breathtaking glass, Pax Vaporizers, tinctures, Mary Jane topicals, old school, house-made edibles, good lookin' apparel and more to discover each visit.
I get a great local discount that takes the edge off of recreational tax, and a sale over the Fourth of July offered some good deals for the general public. $10 1 gram pre-roll (tax included) for example, and $80 1/4's of a variety of strains. Not Denver prices possibly, but not much in Telluride really is, plus it is exceptional product and customer service. They talk me through my selections if I want, recommending strains after listening to my questions and ailments and checking the weight of pre-weigh jars to make sure I'm getting full bang for my buck.
Telluride itself is an incredible forward thinking place, and Alpine Wellness speaks to the overall experience quite positively. Check it out! And try the Hippie-Chow! A personal favorite.
First time newbie, bought and paid for a 1/4 only to find out later that they ripped me off - only gave me an 1/8.
I know better now!
Also didn't like their attitude and that they record your info into their data base.

We purchased 1/8 of Urkle a 1/16 of blue dream and two cookies 25mg/per.
Upon Arrival entry area was unmanned. We walked all the way back to the sales counter before being corralled back and talked into signing some waiver and forced to wear our IDs on our chest like a vistor in jail.
When purchasing, we felt rushed. There were five people in the store, three were employees and we were the two.There was little to no knowledge on the buds but they acted like they knew just about everything. No strain backgrounds, No taste profile, no THC/CBD testing or higher potency edibles.
Just...."Um yeah it gives you a body high....this is a helmet high" type of verbal profiling.
I scaled the 1/8 at 3.26g
The 1/16 at 1.69g
My scale is accurate to the 1000th of a gram.
The cookies were completely crap. Dry, tasteless, NOT POTENT. My wife is an average smoker and ate both, No effect. WASTE OF MONEY!!!
The buds were powder dry. This is the bud you take to the bar where Im from and smoke everyone up on. JUST BECAUSE TO SELL....SHOULD BE A CRIME. BONE DRY!
No high from Heavy Sativa strain what so ever. Blue Dream.
Very Tiny High from the Urkle.
Will never go back, and will advise all to avoid.
i went in last week and shopped there the owner and staff was awesome thats where i will do my shopping from here on out thanks alpine

Alpine Wellness was the worst experience my husband and i have ever experienced and we are daily (non-medicinal) users who have bought bud from many other sources. The staff at Alpine Wellness seem to have a holier than thou type attitude. It's as if they have a big head because they are one of the few shops around open for recreational use, at the moment. They seem to think we have to go to them like we have no other options. My husband and I ended up leaving after reviewing the supply they had without buying a thing. They showed us a pre-packaged eighth that looked way smaller than an eighth and they wanted 100 dollars for that itty bitty bit of cannabis. It honestly would have been a couple bowls worth of weed and they were asking what a quarter costs on average. Waaaay overpriced, my suspicion and the feeling I got was that they were price gouging. We took our money and went down the street to Telluride Bud Company and bought some excellent grape ape and a strain of sativa known as big band from the owner himself who was very grounded and respectful as well as knowledgeable. I also want to mention that Adam himself measured out two eighths (1/8 sativa and 1/8 indica which equals a quarter in whole) in front of us, it wasn't pre-packaged so we could see clearly that we were actually getting a full quarter. Not to mention a quarter ounce at Telluride Bud Company ran us just under 100 dollars after taxes. Very reasonable if you ask me. Save your time, money, and aggravation and head on over to a more professional shop like TBC, skip going to Alpine Wellness.
This is by far my favorite weed shop in Telluride. There prices are $25 per 1.75g for top shelf, $30 for premium shelf (not including any tax). Their pre-rolled joints are the BEST IN TOWN ($12 per 1g)! The staff were very friendly and let us inspect several of the strains. Their brownies were the best, I slept for 14 hours after eating one.
I didn't see an elevator, but once you get onto the second floor the shop is wheelchair accessible.
