General Questions


The city of Colorado Springs does not allow for adult-use cannabis sales. This means that everyone who shops at a Colorado Springs Feel State must have a valid medical marijuana ID card from the State of Colorado. Learn how to get your medical card here


At this time, Feel State Dispensary in Florissant, Missouri is accessible to both medical marijuana and recreational cannabis customers. Learn how to get your medical card here


If you’d like to shop as a medical marijuana patient, you’ll need to be at least 18 years of age with a valid driver’s license or other government-issued identification and a valid government-issued medical marijuana ID card from the State of Colorado. Unfortunately, medical cards from other states cannot be accepted. Learn more about how to get your Colorado medical marijuana card here

  • Medical marijuana patients between the ages of 18 and 20 can purchase up to two ounces of flower; up to two grams of concentrates; or up to 20,000 milligrams of THC per day.
  • Medical marijuana patients at least 21 years old can purchase up to two ounces of flower; up to eight grams of concentrates; or up to 20,000 milligrams of THC per day.


  • Adults 21+ with a valid, government-issued ID can purchase up to 24 MMEs per month. 
  • Missouri Medical Marijuana patients with a standard, valid medical card can purchase up to 48 MMEs per month. 
  • What's an MME, you ask?
    • Cannabis is sold in many forms, so the state of Missouri created a system called Missouri Medical Marijuana Equivalency Units (MMEs) for patients.

1 MME = 3.5g of dried flower (equivalent to 1/8th ounce) = 1 gram of concentrate = 100mg of THC-infused food, beverage, tincture, topical, etc. For a handy reference chart and more info, click here.

Cannabis 101

The endocannabinoid system (ECS for short) is the system in your body that is responsible for keeping all your other systems in balance with one another as you encounter stress throughout your daily life. 

This system is supported by cannabinoids, a compound found abundantly in the cannabis plant. To learn more about the ECS, click here. To download our one-page printable summary, click here.

Terpenes are the compounds that give plants their smell and flavor. They are responsible for many of the therapeutic benefits of herbs, and they impact the effects a specific cannabis strain will provide. Click here to learn more about terpenes, or check out our YouTube video series on terpenes here 

Cannabinoids are compounds that support your endocannabinoid system. 

Cannabinoids are created naturally both within your body and in the cannabis plant (as well as some other plants, too!) 

Click here to download our one-page printable summary or watch our comprehensive video lesson on cannabinoids here.

There is no standard dose when it comes to cannabis; your experience is unique to your physiology. 

That said, we always recommend starting low and going slow. 

When trying a new product, start with a microdose and slowly increase until you feel the desired effects.
