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.

Favorite spot in the area.

This place is excellent. They serve a wide and high quality selection of medical and recreational products with very friendly and knowledgeable budtenders. Inside, the store has a lovely boutique feel and carries a surprisingly large selection considering the tight space. The spot can get busy and the experience can get a little crowded during peak times, which could result in a five to ten minute wait to begin shopping. Great prices and loyalty program too.

My first choice!

My wife and I visited Groundswell, and we were immediately in love with the service provided. Everyone is knowledgeable and educated. Our budtender spoke with us until every question was answered, and he gave multiple suggestions based on our needs. We drive from Colorado Springs just for the experience, service, and product quality!

Purple cotton

Salesman wasn't so excited about it so I wasn't sure how great it would be. It was very good. I was surprised. Will be back despite lack of salesman because product spike for itself

We certainly appreciate the high review rating! However, we do apologize that your experience with one of our specialists was lackluster. When it comes to customer service, our emphasis is always on education over pushy sales techniques. We want to give our customers as much knowledge as possible so that each customer or patient may make the most informed decision, without feeling pressured into making a purchase. Ultimately, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed our flower and hope that your next experience with us here at GroundSwell is overwhelmingly positive.

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!

Immense thank you for your kind review. Oteil's Egyptian Kush is a signature strain of Groundswells and can only be found at our one location. We are glad Oteil's Egyptian Kush was able to provide you the relief you were looking for.
