At Alternative Medicine on Capitol Hill (AMCH), we are proud to call Denver home. This scenic city is surrounded by 200 named mountain peaks. Those mountains can be seen from our dispensary in Denver, spanning 140 miles.
Denver is known as the Mile High City for its elevation, which is, you guessed it, one mile high. That means the sun feels warmer, the golf balls fly higher and so do those who enjoy cannabis in the thin atmosphere. The marijuana products in our Denver dispensary pack more punch than you typically experience because of the high elevations, so to speak.
The high elevation east of a major mountain range gives Denver an average of 300 days a year of sunshine. Its dry, mild climate offers more hours of sunshine than Miami Beach and mild, dry weather that allows golf courses to stay open year round.
AMCH is located near downtown Denver, one of the most walkable city centers in the U.S. Downtown Denver boasts three major sports stadiums, a massive performing arts center, three colleges, a mint that makes 10 billion coins each year, and a variety of art and history museums to enjoy. A river even runs through it, where you can enjoy white water rafting, and there’s a water park, an aquarium to visit and more specialty restaurants than you can count.
And speaking of sports, Denver’s six professional sports teams puts it in a rare class among American cities. From football to baseball to basketball to soccer, Denver is known for its recreation, just like AMCH is known for its killer recreational weed! You’ll also find dozens of golf courses, miles of trails and bike paths, and an amazing city park program.
In Denver, there’s a mix of neighborhoods that offer something for any taste, from the tiny suburban enclave of Washington Park with million dollar homes surrounding the 155-acre park to the more eclectic scene in Berkeley that features more rentals, apartments and townhomes amid quaint neighborhood restaurants, boutiques and bars. Lower Downtown is a neighborhood known as LoDo, with historic red brick buildings scattered among renovated industrial structures that present a modern vibe with high-ceiling lofts and open spaces. The more Bohemian feel of Sunnyside features more affordable housing and fixer-uppers with the added attraction of pubs, coffee shops and diners within walking distance.
For fun and culture, Denver offers some of the most diverse entertainment options for its population of highly educated residents and visitors. Before the city had a school or a hospital, it staged a performance of “Macbeth” during its Old West days. The area is so culture focused that the seven-county metro area imposes a sales tax to support the arts. One of the nation’s most celebrated music venues is in Denver, the Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, which has hosted everyone from Kenny Loggins to the Beatles.
Whether you’re looking for adult-use or medical cannabis, we are proud to serve the vibrant and beautiful Denver area.
