Second Colorado dispensary will soon begin offering marijuana delivery

Boulder will soon be home to two dispensaries legally delivering medical marijuana.

Helping Hands Cannabis on Pearl Street recently procured its license for delivery and expects to begin service to medical patients in mid-May, according to co-owner Johnny Kurish.

Kurish decided to offer delivery as a way to safely reach patients during the pandemic. Helping Hands closed voluntarily before Gov. Jared Polis issued a statewide stay-at-home order in March “because we couldn’t see a responsible way to conduct business inside of our premises and still be cognizant of public health and our staff’s health,” Kurish said.

When he found out that Boulder’s medical marijuana code allowed for delivery, he knew that would be a better option.

About 20% of Helping Hands’ business is in medical marijuana; the rest is sold on the recreational side of the dispensary, Kurish said.

“We’ve seen people just let their medical cards expire over the years,” Kurish said. “But I do expect these delivery rules to bring some people back into the medical world.”
