Have you met?
Last week's issue contained the summer release of ReLeaf, our guide to Colorado Springs medical marijuana resources. While we aim to be as comprehensive as possible, some centers appeared on our radar post-deadline.
So here's a look at folks you should be aware of:
• Though it temporarily closed last August, The Hemp Center (2501 W. Colorado Ave., the-hemp-center.com) is up and running again, co-owner Jim Van Diest assures us in an e-mail. Look for roughly 25 strains, with prices on eighths starting at $21. Members receive a free gram and joint after signing up, 5-gram eighths thereafter, and a free eighth on their birthday and the anniversary of signing up with the center.
"We have an RN on staff and an herbalist," writes Van Diest, adding: "We make our own salves, lotions, candy, edibles and tinctures."
• Reza Hassani's American Wellness Center (3632 W. Colorado Ave., 630-5075) offers members free eighths from among its 14 strains every two months, as well as a free joint with every purchase of an eighth, and a free edible with every quarter. Also find earwax hash, Dixie Elixirs, medicated chews, brownies and bath accessories.
"AK-47 and Colorado Blueberry are two of the best [strains] we have; one of them is 65-35 indica-sativa, and one of them is 80 percent indica," says Hassani. "We also have Euphoria, [which] is pretty popular, too, which is sativa." Note: Eighths at the center, which is planning to later open a Manitou Springs location, typically run from $24 to $46.
• Year-old Doctors Orders (2106 E. Boulder St., 719doctor.com) is growing around 50 strains, with eight to 12 available on the shelf. Besides glassware and stash boxes, look for hard candies, chocolates, hash muffins, Cheeba Chews and Benjamin's Edibles. Member pricing includes $35 eighths, $65 quarters and $225 ounces, not to mention a free weekly joint of choice.
• Catch a free, 50-minute "teleclass" with attorney Danyel Joffe at 7 p.m., Wednesday, July 27, called "How Patients and Caregivers Can Protect Themselves." Enroll online at cannabistherapyinstitute.com/classes for call-in instructions.
• The Kottonmouth Kings will play the Summit Music Hall (1902 Blake St., Denver, sodajerkpresents.com) on Aug. 15. Twenty bucks gets you into the all-ages show, which will likely feature tracks from Legalize It and The Sunrise Sessions, among others.
