I never reviewed any dispensary, until now. I've been coming to Holistic for about 18 months. I have been an indoor grower for over 20 years.
I can't grow better meds than these guys!
I got 1/4 of Gorilla Glue last week and it was great!! Nothing but kill! Donkey Kong was the same as a year ago: covered w/trichomes and quick acting!
I have never had a bad bud from these folks.
I love this place!
This is part of my 30 dispensary quest to find a replacement for my shop, which has fallen-off in quality in recent months.
This shop was brought to my attention by Jake Browne at the Cannabist, and his glowing review of their Gorilla Glue. This shop was in the middle of the pack.
First of all, their staff are great. Really nice guys who are willing to tell you about the buds, let you feel them , tell you about them, etc. The staff are doing a really good job. Really passionate and outgoing.
But the buds do leave something to be desired. I forget exactly how these are grown (too much weed smoking), but I suspect they're organic soil grown. And, as I've said in all my other reviews, the results show that. The terps, across the board, smell the same. It's that sort of dirty caviar smell that soil grows tend to have. There were some variations in smell across the varietals, but nothing like you'd see in a finely-tuned pure hydro operation.
Their famous Gorilla Glue, which we came exclusively for, was a really bad version of GG. Check out Element420/Champion or Lush for a really good iteration of GG. This was thin, larfy, kind of brown, and didn't really smoke very well. A sad, tired version of the best example. After smoking a bowl of it, both my friend and i were like "are you high?" not a good sign.
It's also a bit concerning that they grow all their stuff on-site in the small space they have afforded to them. Just looking at the neighborhood, and how crappy and small the building is, I"m not sure one could feasibly have a top-notch grow operation here.
Overall, a decent shop if you live in lakewood, but, there are many better options out there. I probably won't be back.

Some of the best herb i have seen in my life.
Try the Ron Burgundy, Grape Stomper, and KONG.
Easy to get to. Good People. Clean shop. Average prices.
For working in the industry, it is hard to come by good work, good quality and friendly people! Want to say thanks to mark for helping me out for the first time today. Was happy to see wm concentrates on shelfs and I also picked up and 8th of Girl Scout cookies and Ron burgundy. After firing up the silver surfer I must say these have great flavors and very effective! It's a small shop in the corner off sheridan.. But I would def recommend giving it a shot, I will be back for sure! Thanks guys
This has become my go-to dispensary. They are very knowledgable about their strains and have always provided very solid recommendations. Donkey Kong and Super Lemon Haze have been personal favorites of mine!
I really can't stress the customer service enough. It is so nice to feel genuinely appreciated for my business, which isn't something you find very often these days.
They price their grams high, so their deals aren't great. The quality of the bud is mediocre. The smell, taste, and high of the product is that of a wholesale rec shop.
The atmosphere is lame. Bright, saturated shit walls and a bud tender with an apathetic attitude.
Go to the Little Caesars next door and get a five dollar pizza.
The young lady that helped me was very nice, the bud was exactly what it was said to be. Not exactly the strongest, but at the price the Kong was right on the money. The wax they sell is very reasonable and very potent, easily competes with other places that charge twice as much for the same product, full of flavor, uber potent. Next time im in the area, I will come visit you guys. Thank you, and keep up the awesome work.
Got purple haze and wasnt really purple at all and mist buds were premature
We are sorry to hear that you did not like the Purple Haze you got on your first time in. If you would like to stop by and pick out another strain that may fit your needs a little better you can receive a gram for a penny. Just Ask for Megan. Hope to see you in our store again soon!

Tried the White Maui, good weed for the price. The trichomes are unreal! There are trichomes lining the bottom of the sack! The Red Dragon Co2 oil is good too. Staff is friendly and down to earth. The window to see the grow room is neat. Hard as hell to find though. Waaaaaay behind Little Ceaser's,keep going! :-) Stay away from the clowns across the street at Mile High.
Just got back from Holistic Life. I payed $25 for 1/8 chem dog one of my favorites :) very good Smoke very good price.Get there early for discounts!! Friendly staff. Tons of plants you can view in there grow room! very cool!
I also thought it was hard to find and when you walk in it was dirty and smelled like cat piss.
I would still go back for more top shelf deals.
