It was my first time in a dispensary in Telluride and my experience was interestingly pleasant at Alpine Wellness. I was greeted by a receptionist who checked my id and went into another room that opened into the store. I was helped by a woman, Jan (?) who gave me the layout of the store and gave me time to browse and take it all in. I wasn't quite sure where to start so I appreciated Jan's recommendations of trying buds and edibles that were special and unique to Alpine Wellness. I left with a eighth of pipe dream and a peanut butter fatty (tastes like a Reese's) and later in the week tried a caramel original ganjula. Another woman Linda recommended putting the ganjula in my coffee which was very good. The pipe dream bud or "flower" as they say was perfect for my time spent in Telluride. I really think it says a lot when the sellers try not to over sell you and make sure the amount is enough and not too much for my visit. I was encouraged to visit the other dispensaries in town but the Alpine Wellness has my vote. Honest and thoughtful customer service and great weed!
So stopped by today (3/10/17) and my experience was awesome. Miranda is a very knowledgeable awesome bud tender. The store is set up very well; a seriously welcoming environment. The extracts are a little lack luster. If you guys linked up with other MIP holders you will be better off. You have great product so maybe link up with some other Denver companies and introduce new product; fresh frozen, rosin, distilate, etc. Anyways, your product could definitely be processed in new ways, it's perfect for it.
So back to my shopping experience. I purchased jaberwocky and Sasquatch. Both were great. The Sasquatch is very solid. The jaberwocky was a little hermied out (seed growth in bud) but never the les it was a good smoke. I would guess y'all are growing in green house with supplement lighting. Whatever your set up is it is solid and I dig the product. Only thing I would say is maybe process your hermied batches.
I really doubt that the best staff in town would deny a glass of water to a customer, less likely a Tourist like this guy down here.... This folks are definitely the most community oriented dispensary and their owners are amazing.
Shop with confidence. Alpine's got it.
Wish the staff could have exerted more energy towards showing me around. The staff denied me of a cup of water.
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.
