Name and title of interviewed: Neal Bigelow (Store Manager)
How and when did your dispensary start up?
Life Flower Dispensary (formerly Medicine Man Medical Market) started in August 2010 as a medical only dispensary. In September 2015 we opened our doors as a dual facility serving both medical and recreational marijuana.
What’s the story behind your name of your shop?
We consider marijuana a flower for life. It promotes a healthier lifestyle; it has many beneficial qualities medicinally, and we want to spread the word of this amazing flower and its healing properties. It’s these reasons that we named our store Life Flower Dispensary.
What does your dispensary offer clients that they can’t find anywhere else? What do you specialize in, if anything?
The amazing thing about us is that we are a one stop shop; and our doors are open until midnight, seven days a week for medical and recreational patients. We are proud to have a wide range of products (concentrates, edibles and flower) to meet all of our patient and guest needs. Our main focus is providing all of our guests with exceptional customer service and making sure everyone leaves happy.
What are the biggest challenges you face in this industry as a dispensary? Biggest joys?
Our biggest challenge is keeping up with the constant changes in regulations within the marijuana industry. Our biggest joy is creating relationships with our patients and guests and being here for them when they need us the most.
What is the one thing you want patients to know about your dispensary?
We are proud to be the only dispensary in the Denver metro area who serves BOTH Medical 18+ and recreational 21+ until midnight, Monday through Sunday!
If someone wanted to open a dispensary and get their feet wet in the industry, what advice or counsel would you give them?
Our advice would be to treat this industry SERIOUSLY. This industry is still very young and many regulations change constantly. Always make sure to continue your education on the laws and regulations so that you are always compliant.
What is the most important thing you hope to accomplish while in the MJ/MMJ community?
We want to continue to educate and bring awareness to this amazing flower and the health benefits it has. As always we will continue providing our patients and guests with exceptional customer service and a variety of genuine quality products. After all it’s your life, our flower—Life Flower.
