1315 Elm Avenue – Rocky Ford, CO
The Star Buds Rocky Ford recreational dispensary is located at 1315 Elm Avenue in Rocky Ford, Colorado. Rocky Ford is a small, agricultural city in Otero County, and it is perhaps best known for great fruit and vegetable growing conditions afforded by the local soil. The Star Buds recreational cannabis shop is situated in the central part of Rocky Ford, and it is accessible from U.S. Route 50 (US 50), which also provides a direct path between the dispensary and the Knapp’s Farm Market that sells seasonal produce like cantaloupes and watermelons. Additionally, the Rocky Ford dispensary is within walking distance of the Rocky Ford Museum, and it’s within driving distance of the Arkansas Valley Fair Grounds. Given the retail marijuana store’s close proximity to the Southeastern Colorado border, it is a popular destination for cannabis consumers who make the drive from New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas.
The Star Buds recreational dispensary at Elm Avenue is housed in a massive building that measures at 13,000 square feet. In 2020, the building was remodeled and built-out to give it a modern feel and look. The large space allows customers plenty of room to walk around and look at a wide selection of top-of-the-line cannabis products, including different grades of cannabis flower, numerous high-quality concentrates, and edibles from premium brands.
Scythian Real Estate purchased the 1315 Elm Avenue property in October 2021 as part of a sale-leaseback deal with Schwazze, which operates all of the Star Buds dispensaries located in Colorado. The Rocky Ford dispensary is one of four Schwazze properties that are currently part of the Scythian cannabis real estate portfolio. In addition to operating dispensaries in Rocky Ford, Pueblo, Ordway, and Las Animas, Schwazze also has Star Buds retail marijuana shops in Denver, Aurora, Commerce City, Longmont, Louisville, Niwot, and Westminster.
