Terrapin Care Station – Longmont, CO

Terrapin Care Station is one of the most recognized companies in the Colorado cannabis industry. One of the first medical providers in 2009, they have been making big waves ever since. Founder and Owner Chris Woods made the largest individual donation at the time to the Amendment 64 campaign in 2012, which ultimately led to the legalization of recreational marijuana for adults. At Terrapin Care Station, corporate responsibility is the core priority, and they have established a comprehensive training program in an effort to maintain Terrapin employees’ knowledge.

Terrapin Care Station - Longmont, COThe Place

Last year on November 19th, Terrapin Care Station opened the first recreational dispensary in Longmont. The opening day included a ribbon-cutting ceremony with multiple city leaders present, as a way to promote a positive community impact. They kicked off their commitment to their new home by donating $100,000 to five local non-profit organizations, allotting $20,000 to each one. The new location is absolutely stellar. The layout is designed to provide more of a “Cannabis Tour” experience, as opposed to the usual cramped, “bank teller” retail store. The new layout has received such a positive customer response that they are slowly transitioning this concept throughout the rest of their five locations.

The Product

All Terrapin Care Station flower — with the exception of Willie’s Reserve — is grown in-house. Other than the edible selection and a few third party suppliers, everything is vertically integrated. A few of their most popular products include a signature vape pen and Terrapin Box Sets, which include an ounce worth of variously sized pre-rolls for $100. A few of my favorite available edibles include chocolates from 1906, Cannabutter from Sweet Grass Kitchen and SUM Microdose Sublinguals. For the dab lovers, I highly recommend any option from Terrapin’s in-house concentrate line, Double Bear. Since I’m a flower girl at the end of the day, I couldn’t get enough of the smells coming from their Princess Leia (Cinderella 99 x Venkman), Dark Blue Dream (Blue Dream x Dark Night) and Honeymoon (Cherry Diesel x The Wife) strains.

Terrapin Care Station has a strong commitment to green practices and sustainability. Their flower packaging is BPA-free and made through an eco-friendly process with renewable polyethylene produced by Brazilian sugarcane ethanol.
