Leave Firearms and Weapons at Home
Most dispensaries can seem daunting with lots of security, but just remember that all of the security at a dispensary is there to protect you and other other customers.
Please leave all Firearms and weapons at home. This includes anything that could slice, poke, prick or stab. If you have a question about what is permitted in the dispensary, please feel free to contact us anytime.
Bring Cash or an ATM Card
Cannaco Trinidad and Walsenburg have ATM machines available for your convenience. At this time, most dispensaries do not permit the use of Credit or Debit cards due to Federal regulations.
The ATM is located inside the dispenary and a valid ID must be presented to use it. No exceptions will be made.
Quantity Limits in Colorado
The state of Colorado has set limits on how much Cannabis you can purchase at any given time. If this system confuses you, one of our budtenders would be more than happy to explain it to you when you visit.
It is illegal to pass through a dispensary multiple times to purchase more than the recreational purchase limit. Please respect the recreational purchase limits and enjoy Colorado cannabis here in Colorado.
