Last week, I got the opportunity to stop by Infinite Wellness Center in Fort Collins to get an up-close look at their all new, in-house recreational concentrate line, called Flux by Infinite. By in-house, I mean the products are grown, processed, and sold all within the walls of Infinite and absolutely nowhere else. It’s BHO made right here in the 970, and as of now, it can only be bought here at the Fort Collins store. Currently, the highly refined connoisseur grade concentrate line includes both a wax and a shatter, and plans are already in the works about what’s to come in the future. To avoid getting swallowed up by all of the other 420 hype, the staff at Infinite chose to do somewhat of a soft launch during the week of April 20, followed by a real, full-blown launch which allowed Flux to get the proper recognition it truly deserves.
The name may be short and sweet, but an incredible amount of time, care, and thought has been put into this line. From the high-quality products all the way down to the innovative packaging designs, this is a purchase customers will definitely be smiling about. Speaking of smiling, if you shop at Infinite, you might recognize the signature smiley face that can be found around the store, as well as also now on the packaging of their brand new line. Although figuring out the best method for packaging was the biggest hurdle when launching the line, what they have managed to create is like nothing else out that’s there, and Max the Marketing Manager at Infinite even showed me the comparisons to prove it. When dealing with the containers that wax and shatter usually come in, you’re pretty much always going to experience some typical annoyances, such as melting or having shatter fall onto the floor due to popping parchment paper. This is not the case with Flux. The shatter is put inside a self-sealing, tabulated envelope which is made from a synthetic material, meaning it is completely waterproof and tear-resistant. Water was poured directly on top of the envelope and I could then see just how easily it slides right off, and furthermore, how the moisture did not impact the product inside whatsoever. Next, Max had me try to rip the envelope…and I mean I tried my hardest, putting all of my muscle into it, but yet still wasn’t even able to form even a tiny tear. Because the envelopes are equipped with multiple layers, customers also won’t get any leaks or popping that can happen with parchment paper and other packaging materials. The inside of the envelopes will spare you from experiencing wet or greasy paper, even if you have it in your pocket all day, putting in into the freezer is still not required. When it comes to the wax, it is displayed on the shelves in a plastic puck, however inside, the actual product is placed into a small and clean, clearly labeled glass jar. Not only are these jars efficient and insulated in order to keep your product fresh, but you can literally use it as your dab tray and not have to worry about cleaning things up when you’re done. They are still working on a final design for the outer puck, with hopes of making it a bit more visually appealing to customers. The envelopes, glass jars, and pucks can all be reused, whether it be for storing more concentrates, your weed stash, or for any other little goodies that need a place to be stored. You can’t go wrong purchasing the wax or the shatter – terpy, delicious, blonde butter and dark shatter that are beautiful to look at, the list goes on and on. Infinite usually has around four or five different strains of wax and shatter from the Flux line out on the floor at a time, ensuring a variety to choose from, but also always making sure to feature at least one Indica and one Sativa that are super high in potency. As of now, pricing for wax is $40 a gram and $45 for shatter, which is about $5 less than any other concentrate sold in store. For a more detailed look before actually heading into the store, you can always check out Flux’s Facebook page, which also includes reviews from initial buyers over the past few weeks. If you’re looking for some great options to try, the staff highly recommends Moby Dick and Bruce’s Dog.
Infinite does a great job of keeping their menu updated on their own website, as well as on Leafly too. When you do visit Infinite’s site, be sure to sign up for their VIP email club. Doing so not only means that you’ll always be up to date with everything that’s happening in the store, including new products and special deals, but you’ll also get in on exclusive promos only available to VIP club members.
The Fort Collins location is actually also undergoing a pretty major renovation right now, but guests would never be any wiser of the construction that’s going on. There’s absolutely no loud noises or any other distractions that customers might find disruptive – I didn’t even know any construction was occurring until Max told me. An anticipated completion date has been set for June, and once it’s all said and done, they will end up expanding to total of 15 registers, doubling the size of their front lobby, and getting a few other technological upgrades, specifically aimed to enhance customer experience. While the Fort Collins location is able to meet the needs of both medical patients and recreational buyers, and does a great job of doing so, their second location in Lakewood is highly recommended to medical patients who are seeking service that’s a bit more private, and in a smaller, boutique-like atmosphere without all of the hustle and bustle.
A big thanks to Max and the entire staff at Infinite Wellness for letting me hang out and learn all about Flux!
