Aurora’s newest marijuana dispensary will open next week at 16840 E. Iliff, making it the second location for Denver-based Good Chemistry.
The dispensary will offer recreational marijuana only, while Good Chemistry’s original location at 330 E. Colfax Ave. offers both recreational and medical marijuana.
Matt Huron, founder and CEO of Good Chemistry, assembled a team of professionals including a botanist and an investment banker to help grow his company, which he eventually wants to debut on a national scale.

The 3,600-square-foot Aurora store will host a grand opening on April 9 and will sell marijuana grown by Good Chemistry at its two off-site grow facilities.
“Everything we do at Good Chemistry is guided by four principles: science, access, dignity and compassion,” Huron said. “We believe that cannabis has significant therapeutic lifestyle benefits and we work to support and expand its study. We think that people should have access to safe, reliable and high-quality cannabis.”
Huron got involved in the medical marijuana industry in the 1990s when his father and his father’s partner were diagnosed with HIV and used medical marijuana to relieve their symptoms.
He began growing medical marijuana fro AIDS patients in California in 2000 and moved to Colorado 10 years later, where he co-founded Wellspring Collective Medical Marijuana Center, which catered to seniors with health challenges. Huron started Good Chemistry in 2010.
