Adult/ Recreational use - Adults 21 years or older are allowed to purchase up to 1 ounce (28 grams) in a single transaction. You can buy a mix of products including; flower, edibles and concentrates.
Because some products (like concentrates) have a higher level of THC than flower, you won't be able to purchase the same amount in both forms. The 'Marijuana Equivalency' rules equate 1 oz of retail (recreational) flower = 8g of concentrate (shatter, wax, etc.) or 800mg of active THC in an infused food or beverage.
Medical use - Medical cannabis users can purchase up to 2 ounces of flower, 8 grams of concentrate, or 20,000mg active THC in infused products (like edibles, beverages and transdermal skin & body products).
It's important to remember that these are daily purchase limits, not possession limits. As per the Colorado Constitution, you are allowed to legally possess 2oz (or 56 g) of marijuana at any one time.
No, not legally. Colorado law restricts consumption of marijuana to private areas only, like a home or 420-friendly hotel room.

Cannabis is not legal at the federal level in the United States, so travel outside of the state of Colorado with cannabis products is not advised.
Hemp and Marijuana are in fact the same species, and are often even the same subspecies. The primary distinction between hemp and marijuana is the amount of THC found in each individual plant. Where marijuana has higher percentages of THC, cannabis must contain less than 0.3% THC to be considered hemp. Hemp is commonly richer in CBD, though the regulatory definition of hemp does not require a particular level of CBD.
While THC is known to get you “high”, CBD is non-psychoactive. CBD is a great choice for consumers who prefer a non-psychoactive experience. Native Roots tests every batch for THC and CBD potency, so you can be confident that you know what you’re getting. If you’re shopping for CBD elsewhere, make sure your supplier is reputable and provides testing information on their labels!

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most common active ingredient or cannabinoid found in cannabis, whether from hemp or from marijuana. Unlike THC, the most common cannabinoid in marijuana, CBD is not psychoactive and will not cause a “high”.
CBD oil is a term used to refer to the concentrated Cannabidiol that has been extracted from the hemp plant. CBD oil is often used to create edibles, capsules, tablets, vape cartridges, and tinctures.
Terpenes are aromatic molecules produced naturally by a multitude of plants, including cannabis, that are responsible for their unique tastes and aromas. Blends of these terpene molecules created by individual cannabis strains create the unique aromas and flavors of each strain and can add to the distinct effects produced when consumed. No matter how you consume marijuana or hemp, terpene molecules contribute to the; citrus, skunky, coffee, spicy, herbal, diesel, woody, pine, or tropical aromas and flavors.
The “entourage effect” refers to the beneficial effect of terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids and fatty acids naturally found in cannabis working together to create an interactive synergy, or benefit greater as a whole than any single compound can offer. This is also sometimes referred to as “Whole-plant” or “Full-Spectrum”, terms used to describe using the whole plant, not just isolated parts to create the most effective cannabis products.
Some products come in “Isolate” varieties and some come in “Full Spectrum” varieties. When you see “Isolate” or “CBD Isolate” on the packaging, it means that CBD is the only cannabinoid present at a measurable level in the product. “Full Spectrum” means that the product contains a similar range of cannabinoids as the cannabis plant from which it was extracted.
Sativa and Indica simply refer to the lineage of the plant. Indica and Sativa describe how cannabis plants physically look and grow, but do not speak to effect. For example, Sativa dominant strains typically are taller in structure, have narrow leaves, are better suited to grow in warmer climates and have longer flowering periods. Indica dominant strains are typically shorter in structure, have broad leaves, are better suited to grow in colder climates and have shorter flowering periods.
While the “indica vs. sativa” debate continues to create controversy, Native Roots has created their own Mood State Matrix to describe the different effects customers are actually looking for when they typically mention Indica, Hybrid or Sativa. Our Mood State Matrix consists of 5 different moods for whatever effect you're after ranging from Uplifted, to Energetic and Focused to Sleepy and was designed to elevate the customer experience and ensure you are buying the correct strain for your desired effects.

When storing cannabis flower, there are four main variables you need to control; light, air, temperature, and humidity. The optimal storage solution for your cannabis flower will take each of these variables into account. We suggest you use airtight containers made out of glass, metal, silicone, or plastic. And be sure to store your containers in a dark, cool location away from heat or direct light. The same can be said for concentrates, joints, spliffs, blunts, and vape pens.
Concentrates are products made from the cannabis plant that have been processed to keep only the most desirable plant compounds (primarily the cannabinoids and terpenes), while removing excess plant material and other impurities. Ounce for ounce, marijuana concentrates have a higher THC content than marijuana flower.
Concentrates can also help increase the potency of your flower. The next time you pack a bowl with cannabis flower, try sprinkling kief on top, or add drops of concentrate oil to cannabis flower before rolling your joint. Cannabis concentrate products can also be consumed on their own. For example, concentrates can be vaporized using a portable vaporizer or dab rig (this activity is referred to as “dabbing”). Dabbing has quickly become one of the most popular consumption methods on the market.

Dabbing is the process by which more potent cannabis concentrates are vaporized using high heat and a dab rig - a glass chambered water pipe similar to a bong.
Dab rigs typically require a titanium, ceramic, quartz or glass nail, also known as a banger or bowl. Consumers use a butane torch or e-nail to bring the banger to a temperature that almost instantly vaporizes the concentrates as a high-dose rapid-acting inhalation.
Dabbing typically offers a more potent high and more immediate effects than smoking flower. It will typically produce a strong flavor and terpene-rich aroma.
Vaporizing, or vaping involves heating cannabis flower or concentrates to a temperature that turns the active compounds (cannabinoids and terpenes) into vapor without combusting it, therefore no smoke is created. Vaporizing as a process is typically invisible, and doesn't create a cloud. Vape pens are popular for their ease of use, portability, and because they offer an opportunity for more consistent dosing than other methods of inhaling marijuana. Most vaporizers also have heat settings that allow you to choose the temperature, which can affect the amount of terpenes versus cannabinoids that are consumed as they have different temperatures when they become a vapor.
Liquid and solid concentrates vaporizers actually aerosolize the concentrates, rather than vaporize them. This is more similar to water hitting a hot pan and flashing into tiny water droplets that float up as visible 'steam.' Vaporizing cannabis or hemp flower is the only 'true vaporizing' that happens in the cannabis/hemp world. Dry flower contains the entirety of the plant , meaning you’re getting all of the naturally occurring terpenes and cannabinoids found in the plant itself. Many cannabis consumers proclaim that vaping the flower is a fuller, richer experience that can’t be mimicked by vaping cannabis oil. The psychoactive effects may be different as well with the effect or “high” more similar to that of smoking a joint or bowl.
