Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Purchasing

A customer shopping at a recreational dispensary can purchase up to 1 ounce of marijuana flower a day. For purposes of the recreational sales limit, 1 ounce of marijuana flower is equivalent to 8 grams of concentrates or 800 milligrams of THC in edibles. A customer that is a medical patient may purchase marijuana flower up to the amount authorized on his or her patient registry card, typically two ounces a day.

Yes. NuVue encourages you to bring your friends and loved ones and shop together. Just remember that we generally limit groups to 3 people, and that we might have to break groups of more than 3 people into smaller groups if our store is very busy, as it tends to be!

NuVue can only accept returns for products that are defective. This means products that are not working correctly due to factors that were not caused by the customer. To exchange the defective product for a new product of the same type, you must be sure to bring in the product itself along with the relevant sales receipt to the store from which the product was purchased within five days of the initial purchase. NuVue cannot provide refunds for marijuana product purchases.

We are currently unable to accept credit cards, but all of our locations have ATM machines available on site in the lobby.

Yes. Out-of-state residents may purchase up to 1 ounce of marijuana flower. While you do not have to be a resident to buy recreational marijuana, only Colorado residents can acquire a medical marijuana card. Also remember that it is illegal to transport marijuana outside of the state.

Consumption

The maximum allowable dosage for a single serving of an edible is 10 milligrams of THC. As such, we recommend that infrequent cannabis users, meaning those with low tolerances, start by consuming no more than 10 milligrams of THC in an edible at a time. However, it goes without saying that cannabis affects everybody differently, and only you will be able to determine what amount is right for you.

No. It is illegal to publicly consume marijuana in Colorado, or at any location that is accessible to the public. Marijuana consumption is limited to an individual’s private property. Nevertheless, Colorado recently passed a bill authorizing “marijuana hospitality establishments” in which marijuana and marijuana products can be sold and used on site. Regulations concerning marijuana hospitality establishments are expected to be in place by January 1, 2020, and NuVue will consider pursuing a marijuana hospitality space for its customers to enjoy at that time.

Product

Conventional wisdom has it that Indica strains are relaxing and physically sedating while Sativa strains are uplifting and heady. However, new research suggests that the Indica versus Sativa distinction may be more of a convenience than a reality; instead, the more accurate indica of a cannabis product’s effects may be the product’s cannabinoid profile and terpene content.

Cannabis terpenes are oils secreted by cannabis plants that affect the smell, taste, and effects of the bud. Over 100 different terpenes have been identified in the cannabis plant, with every strain having a unique terpene type and profile. A strain like Super Lemon Haze, for example, will have a noticeable lemon smell and taste because of its high Limonene terpene content. Terpenes also influence the effects of a strain. Using the previous example, Limonene has been shown to reduce inflammation and result in an elevated mood.

NuVue proudly manufactures concentrates at its own, state-of-the-art extraction lab, RMExtracts. With the flexibility that comes from having our own products manufacturing facility, we are able to offer a wide range of concentrates including wax, shatter, budder, sugar, terp sauce, THCa crystals, THCa diamonds, live resin, BSE, and caviar. More information about RMExtracts and the types of concentrates we make can be found on the “extraction services” page on our website.

The word “Cannabis” technically encompasses both Hemp and Marijuana. But the difference between the two lies in how Hemp and Marijuana plants are selectively bred for the end product, specifically THC content. Hemp is defined as having no more than 0.3% of delta-9 THC concentration on a dry-weight basis, whereas Marijuana is defined as having more than 0.3% delta-9 THC concentration. Therefore, Marijuana tends to be far more psychoactive than Hemp.

NuVue offers three tiers of high-quality cannabis: Imperial, King, and Royal. Our Imperial shelf flower is the leading standard in cannabis. This shelf offers the most potent, full, aromatic, and terpene-rich buds in the business. Our King shelf is also worthy of its name. King buds are taken from the top cuts of our plants for their size, smell, color, and trichome development. Finally, our Royal shelf offers quality, well-rounded bud at bargain prices. In addition to our three shelves, NuVue offers a wide range of prepackaged bud at low cost.

The terms “medical” and “recreational” in the context of marijuana simply refer to the two classes of consumers who can legally purchase marijuana. To shop at a medical dispensary, a consumer must be at least 18 years old and possess a valid marijuana patient registry card. To shop at a recreational dispensary, a consumer must be at least 21 years old and possess a valid government-issued ID. Medical patients are able to purchase larger quantities of product than recreational consumers, but the quality of the marijuana purchased is the same across our shelves.

Legal

Yes. Out-of-state residents may purchase up to 1 ounce of marijuana flower. While you do not have to be a resident to buy recreational marijuana, only Colorado residents can acquire a medical marijuana card. Also remember that it is illegal to transport marijuana outside of the state.

Acceptable forms of identification are limited to the following:

• An operator’s, chauffeur’s or similar type driver’s license, including a temporary license, issued by any state within the United States, District of Columbia, or any U.S. territory;
• An identification card, including a temporary identification card, issued by any state within the United States, District of Columbia, or any U.S. territory, for the purpose of proof of age using requirements similar to those in sections 42-2-302 and 42-2-303 of C.R.S.;
• A U.S. military identification card or any other identification card issued by the U.S. government, including but not limited to a permanent resident card, alien registration card, or consular card;

• An enrollment card issued by the governing authority of a federally recognized Indian tribe, if the enrollment card incorporates proof of age requirements similar to sections 42-2-302 and 42-2-303, C.R.S.

The I.D. must be in a sufficiently good condition such that NuVue is able to confirm the age and identity of the consumer.

Yes, so long as it is in a sealed container. Driving under the influence of marijuana, however, is illegal and can result in a DUI.
