Overpriced for a name
Well this place supposedly specialize in og strains. Well the price for medical buds is outrageous and the buds don't quite live up to the money spent. First off the smell and flavor was that of some og linage. The effects were pretty hard hitting at first but tolerance built up was very quick, which shouldn't be part of the og linage. I will say they are good enough to try once just to try but I will not go back simply because of the price. The buds need to be way better to get the 45$ for 1/8th they want. I would give them a B+.

Absolutely ridiculous. Creating a "bomb" shelf with simply the old top shelf strains sinply to charge more is fucked up. This place sold out for big profits. Used to love pink house, but i wont be coning back.
Great dispensary but...

I used to Love this place but then you guys raised your prices by way too much. $16 a gram, yikes! What you used to have; $110 for a half ounce across the board was good deal. The new total of $145 is way too much. It's good bud these prices are just ridiculous.
Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out our great selection. We have the same fair pricing structure! We just added an additional shelf, the "Bomb Shelf" to really showcase some of our best cannabis grown at our state-of-the-art facilities. Members still get $110 half ounces all day, however, we also added a $140/oz. selection where members can also get $20 eighths with tax included! We have the best products to accommodate any desired price point. Please stop by any our convenient locations and we would love to show you the best!

awsome place great people great joints thank you pink house
LA Confidential x Cheese is absolutely Fire
Last week I decided to go down to Pinkhouse Riverside for another visit and more importantly some medication to suppress seizure like tremors that I’ve been having due to an accident. After running the gamut of pharmaceuticals, I sought something to potentially help subdue these strange attacks. The shelves were ripe this visit and sadly Mike has gone on to greener pastures, and on my behalf I wish him the best! So the new tender is someone that is still part of the original Pink House Riverside crew, Lisa. Lisa is Riverside’s BHO specialist, she knows a thing or two about dabbing that can be assured. In fact, my first dab was one of her recommendations on my first visit here...many moons ago. It was proper fire I remember this particular BHO being a wonderfully heavy batch of Herijuana BHO. It was like amber glass, yet workable and sticky to the touch it was one of the finest runs of Herijuana BHO I’ve ever seen let alone smoked. Like anyone at Riverside Lisa and her team are compassionate and caring with excellent customer service.
I didn’t have a lot of money this week, but nonetheless I walked away with a nice eighth, a couple joints, and an extra gram of some good Island Sweet Skunk(one of the few Sativas I like). I figured an Indica dominant hybrid or pure Indica would be an excellent choice for my needs, contrary to most Sativa varieties tend to cause paranoia and restlessness for me which isn’t really relaxing or helpful. I decided to pick up some very powerful smelling LA Confidential x Cheese hybrid, the smell wasn’t the only allure to this stuff; it was a visual feast of deep purple and green hues and so very, very sticky yet frosty chunky nuggets. The beauty of this strain simply cannot be contained, beautiful big chunks of deep purple and green hues covered in trichomes, the pistil hairs peeking out from the deep crevices were an opaque fiery orange yellow tint. The moisture content is perfect, not too dry likewise not too moist the stems of this strain broke cleanly with a nice pop. The bud itself was absolutely rock solid but easy to break chunks off.
The smell was mostly the lovely smell of LA Confidential with an underlying strong funk of Cheese; a deep orange citrus grape soda and pine cone fuel tinged with a royal helping of bleau cheese and brie. The taste was very similar however closer to the Cheese lineage; very earthy with a hint of that familiar grape soda and OG taste that LA Confidential tends to have. The medicated effects come on almost immediately, the first hit off the bong usually leaves you feeling a bit lightheaded but warm around the face and a sort of heaviness builds in the body, after about five minutes you start to feel pretty drowsy and after a couple hours you usually end up asleep before you know it. I find that two bowls of this can easily put me on my ass, and I am pretty far from a lightweight.
I also am happy to report that this stuff suppresses about 98% of my neurological tremors, which is a huge improvement from the officially prescribed pharmaceuticals I was using. The expansion is pretty brutal too, this stuff will make you cough if you aren’t careful! So if you don’t like to cough, sip slowly like a fine scotch or whiskey. Overall, this gets a score of A+ taking home perfection and glory to the Pinkhouse name. Amazing work here fellas(and gals) my compliments to the growers and trimmers.
In closing I like to say thank you again for all the great conversation and patient care Riverside, keep on bringing the quality to the masses because most other places are not.
I just bought 1/2 of tangerine, and it's the best smelling bud in the world! I can't even describe how smooth the smoke is, and it's definitely a euphoric high. Thanks for always delivering the best buds in Denver guys!

Date of visit: 9/24/13
Pink House Riverside, it had been awhile since I had last been to my favorite place. I drive all the way from Evans, Colorado just to get some good medication and after a lot of searching I can honestly say Pink House Riverside always has what I want and need which is also why they are my caregiver. Not to mention once you get to know everyone, you know some pretty cool people and they all treat you like a person. On this visit the bud shelves looked ripe with incredible strains, in fact you could almost smell the incredibly potent medicine practically by the door as you went in. The aroma in the air was of that lovely OG Kush variety, that lovely spicy hash-y herbal smelling lemon lime pine sol like citrus aroma that fills the room. The aroma of the Gods to those of you who enjoy such fine smelling marijuana, until you smell the individual jars; the individual strains each containing their own individual unique pungent and sometimes subtle odor.
After a bit of chitchat between me and Mike, as well as a few the first jar Mike pulled for me was the OG#1 and since he knows I like my OGs and I like my strains extremely potent to help my back relax and help relieve pain. Once the jar opens and it’s all magic; the intense OG Kush aroma fills the room from the jar and you notice the incredibly dense huge perfectly formed bubbly OG nuggets in the jar. A Beautiful deep forest green with lime green highlights here and there with a slight reddish hue due to the beautiful deep reddish orange pistol hairs that creep out all over the pointy, chunky bulbous nuggets of OG#1. OG#1 is sticky to the touch, and extremely dense however more importantly the potency is off the scale.
The smell is an intoxicatingly strong traditional OG smell with a huge blast of Kush at the back end. It has that lovely piney citrusy floral note assaults the senses and as you breathe deeper you can smell the vegetal spicy herbal earthy Kush notes but turn everything up to eleven and dip it in some fuel.
I find the medicinal effects of OG#1 to be extremely heavy and potent, a heavy narcotic like body stone that really relaxes the muscles, the mind, and definitely puts you in the mood for sleep. I would add that it also seemed to suppress my nightmares, so for those of you who suffer from bad nightmares, or night terrors give this stuff a try as it seems to help mine and my insomnia. A slight head presence can be felt, as the high is somewhat slow and spacey mentally
but for the most part this is your night time and pain medication even if you have a decent tolerance. Grade: A
Mike also surprised me with my personal favorite ever since I had it before the Cannabis Cup, the wondrously incredible AmnesiaWreck. To describe the aroma of AmnesiaWreck is always difficult to put into words, much like the aroma of Jack Herer; Like Jack Herer there is this odd sweet and almost “candied” candy component to the aroma of AmnesiaWreck. When you breathe the ambrosia that is AmnesiaWreck you notice the piquant notes of lemon, lime, sandalwood, hashish and a sort of tart creamy citrus smell. I also love the color, bright lime green foxtail shaped nuggets covered in frosty trichomes and pistil hairs in beautiful hues of deep yellowy orange. The medicinal effects are always a strong heavy high that is also wonderfully cerebral and uplifting. Grade: A, my hands down favorite unless you have Chocolope, Chemdawg, White Widow or Northern Lights #5.
Ahh, Jack Herer. No I don’t mean the incredible Marijuana Activist, I mean the strain! But hey, the strain was named after the man and it is certainly a tribute to his legacy if there ever could be a plant based equivalent. The one thing that I always love about Jack Herer is the amazing aroma of candied lemon zest, with a heavy sour lemon hashish overtone with a hint of skunk. This Jack was instantly recognizable in the smell, as well as that peculiar shape the nuggets always seem to be in, every Jack Herer nugget or cola I’ve seen has this particular chunky triangular foxtail shape thing going on while also being very dense. It’s instantly recognizable, and the smell is unmistakable much like when you get a look at some proper Sour Diesel or Chemdawg.
The taste of the smoke is a sour tasting herbal version of the aroma that coats the palate and mouth and is clear of throat irritation or unpleasant flavors on the palate that indicates it was cleaned properly as well(something that is not uncommon with Pinkhouse Riverside’s strains) prior to harvest, and given proper cure time. The smoke has a tendency to expand in the lungs, but is still manageable on exhale. The medicated state of this stuff is extremely energetic and cerebral in the first hour or so, and then tapers to a nice mellow body high with positive mood enhancement.
I also bought a few hash joints, and those were also pretty potent but not as much flavor as I was expecting still awesome though. Speaking of hash I also purchased some fantastic looking and fragrant BHO hash in two different varieties, OG#1 and OG#2. While I am more of a Bubble Hashish/Essential Extracts kind of guy I do have a dabbing set up and I do occasionally dab. I found both varieties of OG bho to pretty fragrant when compared to previous BHO I’ve bought from Pink House, as far as quality I’d say it’s the same that I’ve experienced before. They always seem to purge their BHO properly when compared to other places and even many home grows.
As for the effects and taste the OG#1 and OG#2 taste fairly similar, both feature a similar strong piney orange citrus flavor when dabbed onto a nail. The OG#2 being a bit earthier with a more pronounced hash taste. Both BHOs also were fairly easy to work with, so those of you interested in that will be pleased, as I find BHO pretty tough to work with. Visually both BHOs are beautiful gleaming flat rectangles, with OG#2 being a much darker amber when compared to the almost deep reddish brown honey hues of the OG#1. The OG#1 despite being a pretty heavy strain, felt much lighter in the body presence of the high and far more cerebral, and heady. The OG#2 was completely opposite, and was extremely body heavy with heavy expansion in the lungs and very little head presence, after a few flawless dabs on my TI nail dab set up I was beyond ready for the best pain free sleep of my life. As mentioned both samples were purged properly, no residue on the nail or on titanium screens and no harsh butane taste on the palate or burning sensations in the throat. Grade: A. Very, very, good but I still prefer that fantastic Essential Extracts hashish.
Riverside, what haven’t I lauded about this place? The people? The product? The service? Riverside is a cut above the rest and challenge even some of the best dispensaries in the state. Thanks again Riverside, and stay high and dry in these wet times.
Thank you once again for such an Epic review. We absolutely love having you stop by and hang with Team Riverside. So glad you enjoyed the Meds that you picked up. Also glad to hear that all fared well during the floods. We look forward to your next visit and as always, thank you so much for traveling so far to see us. Until next time, keep it weird....keep it really, really weird....
Another Fantastic experience

Pink House Riverside is my favorite location of all the Pink House Blooms centers that I’ve been to and probably one of the best dispensaries in Denver if not Colorado. Of course that is just my personal opinion after visiting a lot of other places, Pink House is one of the premier carriers of the Essential Extracts produced by Nikka T which is top end medicine that cannot be beat. I always make sure to grab some if I can afford it. When buying medication here I feel I can always find something that suits my needs, and the people here are careful in the handling of the medication, knowledgeable and kind. I decided to take a trip down south from Greeley to procure some bubble hashish and a half ounce of some fine Pink House medication I actually met a new budtender as well; Hannah, who was extremely kind and affluent. Her unabashed love of good television entertainment shows such as the incredible Breaking Bad makes you feel right at home amongst allies. Of course there were some familiar faces like the always amiable Jared, and of course the ever venerable revolutionary and rocker, Mike.
After going through a plethora of jars from Krazy Kurple and Snowpac to the Awe-inspiring SFV OG, and talking a bit of shop here and there. I ended up picking up some sour smelling Headband, Phantom OG and a time forgotten favorite; Pacific Coast Kush, a super earthy smelling strain that I had last had the pleasure of smoking right around the Cannabis Cup. The hash I purchased was some stunning, incredibly dark purple colored Lemon Kush 90 micron hash and my personal all-time favorite hash, the ever incredible orange delight known as Real OG 45 micron hash.
I must applaud the consistency and quality control for the hash, usually Hash is pretty inconsistent by its very nature. That said every container I’ve ever had of Real OG has been consistently the same; a beautiful deep amber makes up the coloration of the tiny globules of sticky hash, the high washes over the body in warm waves, the smell is alluringly decadent. A connoisseur would recognize the unmistakable smell of pure unadulterated OG; a deep slightly spicy pine needle infused funk of earth and a bit of fuel. The taste on retrohale through the mouth and nose coats the palate and senses in that unique taste that OG often leaves behind; a familiar taste of pine trees, earth, and candied fuel. I could write volumes about this familiar and fantastic hashish, but sometimes I like to talk about the weird.
Sitting menacingly in a jar was some weird deep purple sticky funk, I’ve never seen purple hash before let alone such a dark shade of it. This hash is none other than Lemon Kush 90 micron, and boy is it fantastic. The taste is something like a very herbal and floral grape soda with a lemon twist, the high is potent, narcotic and hits you like a ton of bricks leaving your head ringing after the first toke from the bong. The Lemon Kush 90 micron hash got my attention immediately, it was highly unusual to see hash of such a strange color. The color of this hash is a deep, almost black purple and it is incredibly sticky yet pliable enough to roll into balls or different shapes. This is probably my favorite hash for night time since it puts me right to sleep, if you suffer from insomnia and constant pain this stuff will definitely take care of you. A near perfect hash in my opinion, taking home a letter grade ranking of A on my scale.
I had also never had Headband, so I picked up an Eighth of that to give it a try. The one thing I’ve always heard about Headband is that you get a Headband like sensation around your head when you smoke it, and that it has some Sour Diesel lineage to it. I love the ChemDawg and Sour Diesel genetic lineage so it’s always interesting to try a new cross with that good old lineage. I believe it also has some Master Kush and OG Kush in its lineage, and the echoes of those strains can be felt in the high and in the smell. Headband is sour, spicy, and floral smelling with strong overtones of that familiar Pine Trees and fuel smell, with a subtle hint of sour candied diesel fuel. I find Headband to have a wonderful complex bouquet that I find overtly pleasant to the olfactory senses.
The looks of this stuff is even better than the smell, forest green chunky nuggets of sticky goodness. The lineage of the Sour Diesel comes through here fantastically, bright fiery orange pistil hairs eke out from the crevices of the nugs, covered in beautiful trichomes. The trim job looked great as usual, someone spent plenty of time in bud samurai Zen mode and it shows. The high is incredibly energetic, creative with a good amount of pain relief throughout not to mention that strange sensation of having a headband on your head, when you don’t, is a pretty crazy sensation to have. I can definitely see why they called it Headband, and it’s another case of the legend and the truth winding together to meet somewhere in the middle. Whatever you do don’t smoke this stuff at night, you’ll be wired all night long. Even though this stuff gets me wired I feel like it’s a great substitute for or companion to a morning cup of coffee with pain killing attributes. A solid B+ on my rating scale.
The Phantom OG was also incredibly potent, I found it to be stronger than Mars OG which supposedly came from Phantom. I am in constant pain and due to the nature of my injuries and my diseases this stuff works wonders for me. I can sleep easy and the muscles in my back relax enough for me to use my computer for a bit before I have to return to bed. I also have pretty nasty insomnia issues and this stuff puts me right to sleep after a bowl. The overall aesthetics of this stuff definitely resembles an OG strain, dense frosty light green triangles of loveliness. The high is very similar to Mars OG but far headier, right before this stuff puts your lights out it takes you to outer space. The fragrance of this strain is amazing, deep but less spicy than the Mars with that same heavy hashish, earth, and floral background. It has a certain sweetness to it that doesn’t come across in the Mars OG, and in a way I think Phantom might be a little bit better. I find that the high has similar qualities to the Mars, if you were to compare and contrast the two I’d say that the Mars OG sets in sooner whereas the Phantom creeps on you and stays with you longer. I find it has pretty good expansion as well, which is interesting since the mars OG didn’t have as much expansion. The taste of the Phantom OG is super sour and earthy, with a spicy exhale that tingles the throat and nose, Mars is usually very spicy in contrast. This is a new favorite of mine and I will probably procure more on another visit if I see it again, extremely potent strain at about a solid A on my scoring scale. The taste is very similar to Mars OG, bright notes of citrus and spicy floral hashish without the touch of dark chocolate that Mars OG possesses with a sledgehammer-to-your-pain type of high.
For those of you who have interest in Edibles I can chime in about the two varieties of brownies that I have tried from Pink House(and a big shout out to whoever snuck that Sweet Grass Edible into my bag, helped with that long car ride home). Edibles usually don’t affect me in the slightest which is odd since they seem to work for everyone else, I’ve had both the Standing Akimbo and Sweet Grass brownies and I’d say the Sweet Leaf ones are more potent. The Standing Akimbo brownie probably had the best taste though (for any brownie, not just pot ones), the Sweet Grass brownie I had taste mostly like hash which isn’t a bad thing if you like hash-y tasting edibles. That said, the Sweet Grass Brownie was the first one to actually work on me the high was pleasant but mild I’d say these would be good for mild pain relief and anti-anxiety as I found I had no anxiety throughout and a gentle comedown. I usually don’t do edibles since they don’t really work but I think I will pick up one or two of those Sweet Grass edibles from now on whenever I visit, definitely a good buy. As far as how I’d rate them, I don’t have a clue but I would say that the brownie was delicious with potency!
I came in for a half ounce, and some Essential Extracts I left with that and some freebies for the road, some interesting insights, and I left feeling appreciated as a Patient and individual. These guys always take good care of me whenever I come in from Greeley, and they are always nice. The products they carry suit my needs and I hope one day they might open up a shop a bit closer to my neighborhood eventually however, for now I can see myself still making that long trip down for excellent hash, marijuana, and a conversation or two.
Riverside is a bastion of hope in uncertain times, a place where the word quality still has meaning.
