To donate to our shop cat Cheddar’s dental work, please visit our GoFundMe!
As many of you may know, we’ve got a new member on the team here at The Herbal Cure. Our shop cat, Cheddar, has quickly won the hearts of both employees and patients alike! Skinny and a little timid at the time, this sweet little cat started hanging around the parking lot a couple months ago. Since then, we’ve taken her in and have starting caring for this adorable feline!
During her last vet visit, we learned that P.Cheds has a little gum disease and needs a couple of teeth pulled. Her appointment is scheduled for the beginning of January, but dental procedures are a bit pricey and that’s where you come in!
All donations go straight toward making sure Cheddar is healthy and happy! If our goal is reached, any additional donations will go toward food, toys, and future vet bills!
Any amount you may donate is greatly appreciated by all of us here at The Herbal Cure, especially P.Cheds! Show us your donation during your next visit for 5% off your order!
Thank you so much your help!

How and when did your dispensary start up?
We registered the business in 2009 and officially opened The Herbal Cure on April 1, 2010. We got our start during the home-grown phase, right before House Bill 1284 passed. Fortunately, we are one of the few mom-and-pop shops that made it through all of the regulation and development of the industry, since it exploded in 2010. Owning and operating The Herbal Cure has been one of the most challenging and rewarding processes we could have ever asked for.
What’s the story behind the name of your shop?
Before anyone ever thought recreational legalization could possibly happen, or there were any other shops open with the THC acronym, we thought The Herbal Cure was the most clever way to incorporate the famous cannabinoid into a medically-driven business name. We believe that cannabis has more healing properties than anything else found on the planet, and it really is The Herbal Cure for a vast array of our human conditions.
What does your dispensary offer clients that they can’t find anywhere else? What do you specialize in, if anything?
The Herbal Cure truly is a one-stop shop, specializing in the largest selection of connoisseur quality bud, concentrates and edibles on the market. We are often told that we have the best selection of products, and we even recently won a Best of Denver Award for best patient perks. The Herbal Cure team truly cares about your satisfaction. We specialize in offering high-quality products, exceptional service and keeping our customers happy!
If someone wanted to open a dispensary and get their feet wet in the industry, what advice or counsel would you give them?
Get your badge, be ready for a wild ride, and learn all you can. This industry is still just beginning to develop on a national level. There will be many changes and obstacles ahead. Just keep learning from your mistakes, do the right thing, and be the best you can be, every day. With a little luck to go along with your passion and hard work, you’ll make it.
What is the most important thing you hope to accomplish while in the MJ/MMJ community?
We want to set the standard. The Herbal Cure strives to never lower our standards because it’s easier or cheaper to do so. Simply by being successful, we can influence others in the industry to behave in this same manner. Being part of this up-and-coming industry, we are the pioneers of growing, processing and selling this amazing plant. We owe it to this movement to do it in the most responsible and best ways possible.
The outside of The Herbal Cure still looks probably much the way it has since it was built in 1927, minus the giant red railroad trolley in the front, which makes it look like a movie set for a spaghetti western.
The shop is in what was formerly a lumber yard and later a car lot, and the parking lot and back property dwarf the small building on its edge. I used to shop there when they sold another type of wood, and the owners have done a good job of turning the office into a southwestern-styled dispensary. There are two waiting rooms — one in the front of the store and another after you have been led back through the security doors. The front room is long and narrow, with a corner fireplace, unfinished wood walls and roof timbers.
After my paperwork was checked, I got a quick tour around of the cozy space. The bud bar is in a nook to the right as you enter, along with small rooms for patient consultations and storing clones. The rest of the dispensary is taken up by a huge wooden dinner table and, beyond that, a patient lounge.
The poofy couches were comfortable, and there was plenty of reading material and a flat screen TV on the wall– which was good, because I sat for nearly twenty minutes waiting on the chatty customer in front of me to finish up. Jula Burnham, who owns the shop with her husband Brandon, said they pride themselves on having a place patients can hang out, and clearly this guy wanted to do just that. To his credit, I don’t think he realized I was waiting in line behind him. When he leaned around the corner from the bud bar after yakking on about his own garden to check the score on the Steelers game and saw me sitting on the couch, he sped up his transaction.
Once he finished, I was finally called over to the bud bar, where Brandon Burnham gave me the rundown of what they had in stock, starting with the edibles, topical lotions and concentrates stored in a custom wood cabinet. Herb is kept behind the shelf in glass jars on a wooden book case along the wood-paneled wall. The Herbal Cure reminded me of a hunting camp, but with jars of ganja and kokopelli figures hung on the walls instead of dead elk heads. Brandon was friendly and I realized later that I spent nearly as much time at the counter chatting as the guy in front of me had spent — though nobody was waiting behind me. Herb is broken down into three categories and Brandon had no problem with me working my way through a dozen jars one sniff at a time. Top shelf jars sell at $50 an eighth, middle shelf at $40 and bottom shelf at $35, and all eighths are weighed out at four grams. Brandon told me I would notice a difference between their top shelf and their middle shelf, but the only difference I saw for several of the strains was the price.
I did see some good cuts, like the Juicy Fruit, Rough Neck, and Banana Kush. But some of the jars, like the Sour Diesel and Bubba Kush, were down to shake and clearly weren’t of the same quality as the other strains. Jula Burnham told me later that some of the jars were likely low and shaky because it was the end of the day, but she also admitted they have struggled with their price structure in the past. As the market gets more competitive and shops are starting to offer similar quality “top shelf” meds for less, Jula says they plan to drop their prices to $45 per-eighth — probably this summer, in order to coincide with a larger output of new genetics they are currently growing out.

Island Sweet Skunk wax
The wax had the same orange color as ISS buds, with a true pine sap smell and consistency that melted like beeswax on my fingertips. Dabbed on an oil plate, the wax sputtered a little but mostly bubbled away into a cloud of thick smoke. The oil had a fresh, cedar taste to it but lacked any strong skunky sensation I hoped for considering its origin. But the purely cerebral sativa high, cotton mouth and munchies that took over within twenty minutes was very much Island Sweet Skunk. As powerful as the buzz was for a solid hour and a half, it quickly petered out at the two-hour mark. I got roughly four good dabs on an oil-specific pipe, but I would think most patients could stretch the $30 half-gram much further.
The strain comes from Centennial Seeds, one of Colorado’s first cannabis seed companies, and they aren’t giving up the lineage. However, the budtender told me he thought this strain had hints of something from the chem family. It’s the first I’ve seen of this strain and I hope to see a lot more. The strongest smell out of the jar was a sweet haze, like Super Silver Haze minus the dank muskiness. Very fluffy strain, even without the excessive fan leaves left on the bud. It had tall, fat calyxes that were coated in long tomato-orange hairs. The trichomes were equally as lengthy and they gave the bud a fuzzy appearance. It looked nice, but with the sugar leaves it burned rough in the bubbler. It had a mild skunky taste with a very light hazy finish that I hope they can bring out in future crops.
I didn’t get a look at as many of the indicas as I did the sativas, but their Banana Kush stood out the most from three feet away and again up close. More of the Colorado trim, sans fan leaves — but the coating of crystals left this olive-colored herb almost amber in appearance. Left out, it didn’t stink up my office, but up close, the herb had a definite banana smell — and breaking it open released a deeper, Jamba Juice-like fruitiness. The taste didn’t have much of the banana or fruit flavor to it, and within two hits, my spliff tasted and smelled indistinguishable from other herb. (Between you and me, I don’t really like the taste of bananas anyway.) Flavor aside, within five minutes I was — for lack of any more appropriate term — fucking stoned, with completely dulled senses and a Valium-like numbness for a good two-and-a-half hours. Maybe not the tastiest strain, but for a knockout, it was exactly what I was looking forward to when walking out of the shop
