About Us

GroundSwell Recreational is a Denver Recreational Marijuana Dispensary

GroundSwell Recreational offers their medical cannabis patients and recreational marijuana customers a high level of competence and knowledge paired with only the highest quality marijuana products. Establishing an entirely unique experience for their customers, they pride themselves on their friendly and honest environment, excellent quality cannabis products, and competitive and affordable prices.

History:
GroundSwell Recreational opened their dispensary in 2009 to serve Denver medical marijuana patients and began offering recreational use cannabis products in 2014. They began with a drive to align their background in cannabis and business in this unique field to give back to their community, originally starting as a delivery service. Committed to helping their patients in the early years to getting off of Big Pharma medications and onto a medicine that could help them, the owner and leadership team of GroundSwell Recreational have worked hard to share their dedication to their community. Since opening, GroundSwell Recreational has grown to serve nearly 1,000 medical cannabis patients each month, with nearly 3,500 monthly recreational use customers and each person treated with care and individual attention.

Staff:
GroundSwell Recreational prides themselves on being a patient-centric and hospitality centric organization that stands out within the cannabis industry. They’re able to provide individual attention to each medical patient that comes through their doors and work hard to pivot that same courtesy and service to recreational customers. All of their patient specialists are some of the top customer service workers in the industry, treating each individual with respect and creating a safe environment for visitors to access medical marijuana. Budtending is only a small portion of what their job entails. They relate to each patient and customer, find out what that person needs, and finds them the best cannabis solution.

Menu:
Offering dozens of different cannabis options, GroundSwell Recreational supplies a deli counter with 6-12 flower strains, between 25-40 different concentrates, hundreds of edible options, topicals, capsules, oils and many more products. Nearly all their bud is grown in house, with each strain isolated and given much time and energy to cultivate the highest quality flower. Their concentrates are extracted from the same quality flower, offering a consistency in excellence and strain type, and they soon will supply their trim to edible companies to broaden their homegrown products. Strain favorites include their Oteil’s Egyptian Kush and their Logic Diesel, with their Harmony extracts line selling particularly well. All products are lab tested through Gobi Laboratories, and GroundSwell also offers accessories including glass pipes, dabbing tools, grinders, rolling papers, and much more.

At this time, GroundSwell accepts cash transactions only and provides an ATM for patient convenience. They are proud to offer discounts to veterans, seniors, and patients with financial hardships, as well as an assortment of daily deals, monthly specials and their “Locals Love” days. They also offer their GroundSwell Cannabis Society loyalty program, where visitors can accumulate points and earn different discounts and prizes with each purchase. Patients and customers alike are encouraged to call GroundSwell with any questions or concerns, and they offer a small parking lot with street parking available in front of their facility.

thank you!!

I came to this store after finding their CBD strain on leafy. The associate that helped me showed me what she takes for anxiety, a tincture. It is amazing, does exactly what I wanted to and the associate was super friendly and willing to work with someone new to this world. The price was the best I've seen so far, and the atmosphere was chill.

Bad Experience

I went to Groundswell today because I heard about their Spread the Word deal on Leafly. The advertisement reads "post a review on Leafly, yelp!, Weedmaps, or Facebook and let is know the next time you come in. We'll give you $5 off your purchase for each site you post a review to!" However, when I brought it up at the dispensary, I was told that I could only use 1 review($5) per visit. Since I'm making the transition from Texas to Denver with very little money, I went with the $5 Sweet Grass snicker doodle.I asked if I could come back later that day and use the deal, and I was told yes. However, on my 4th visit that day I was told that I could not use my last 2 reviews ever because I was taking advantage of the deal(*them* based on the fake nice, judgement half-masking tone she used that made me realize she thought what I did was shameful). It was pretty insulting. I'll never go back.

Dear Adrian,

We are very sorry for the misunderstanding and miscommunication. It is very important to us that every single customer experience is positive and unique. Thanks to your feedback, we believe the language used on the promotion you mentioned may have been confusing and lacking clarity. We will make sure the fine print clearly mentions that the $5 is supposed to be a discount from your total, not a voucher for a free item. It is against Colorado law to offer free medicated items, which is why you may have been asked to no longer use the discount on $5 items. Again, we appreciate your feedback and value your opinion and hope that we can perhaps serve you again in the future.

Spread the Word

I came to Groundswell today because I heard about their Spread the Word deal on Leafly. You get $5 for each review you give (1 per app) on google, Facebook, yelp, Weedmaps, and Leafly. My bud tender was very knowledgeable, professional, and likable. They have a pretty big bud selection too!

Great experience

Everything five stars. Can't beat groundswell when it comes to price and quality match up. I got some of their home grown Egyptian kush and it tasted so delicious and it helped with my back pain. Thanks Cole!

Our Favorite Dispensary!

We're visiting from out of town for a week and this trip is my first experience with dispensaries. We've been trying out a little bit from here and there to get a feel for what we like and so that I could get comfortable with the experience. We did our research before getting to town so we've honestly have only had pleasant experiences everywhere we've visited but GroundSwell set the new bar that anywhere we visit has to live up to! They are insanely professional, friendly and enthusiastic from the second you walk in until you leave. Our budtender Rachel was incredibly informative and even helped us find a better deal than the one we came in for, which is on top of their already incredible prices! We left with more than what we came in for and will definitely be back before our trip is over!!

We are beyond happy with such positive feedback. Groundswell strives to provide a comfortable atmosphere while ensuring professional consultations for all walks of life. We always appreciate individuals who do their research before a transaction takes place because it often results in a more fluid interaction. First time dispensary experiences can often be overwhelming and intimidating, but Patient Relation Specialist like Rachel consistently offer benevolence and considerate advice no matter your experience level.

All bad

I cannot believe this place is ranked one of the best. I really hope Colorado has more to offer quality wise. Detroit is killing these guys

Shelly is one of our most experienced and enlightened Patient Relation Specialist at groundswell so I'm glad she was able to expedite your transaction while providing solid advice. Groundswell functions as a small batch dispensary, growing at a smaller scale while focusing on producing high quality premium flower. At times our gram selections deplete due to our focus on producing high quality flower and not large quantity yields. Groundswell appreciates your feed back and will try to improve our gram selection for the future. Feel free to grab a Social Media Review Card next time you shop with us for $5 off a future purchase since you left this review. Thanks again!
