Apothecary Farms: The Laws of Extraction

Apothecary Farms – Colorado Springs, CO

The People

We couldn’t have been more impressed by the team over at Apothecary Farms, a dispensary in Colorado Springs that specializes in homemade concentrates. Not only were we greeted by a team of friendly faces at the front of the store, we also got to tour the entire facility, meeting everyone from the trimmers to the gardeners and head extractors. There was a sense of enthusiasm and synergy flowing between the entire team, and it just goes to show how a positive work environment can promote the best results.

The Place

I loved the rustic, yet elegant, “bakery” vibe of the store. Definitely not what you would expect after seeing the outside of the building—clean, bright and modern, with an undeniable minimalist vibe. Even though I’m not even a little bit familiar with Colorado Springs, the location was incredibly easy to find, and conveniently located just minutes off I-25 South. In addition to their concentrates, Apothecary Farms also has an amazing edible selection, and plans to begin selling select flower on their shelves in the near future. The quality of both their garden and the goods they create in their lab had us at a loss for words.

The Product

As a concentrate enthusiast, I almost drooled on Apothecary Farms’ countertop as I perused the various terps available. While their BHO Shatter and Wax was nothing short of impressive, what stole my stoner heart was Ambrosia, their signature line of live resin. Ambrosia products are made using whole plant material, and after harvest kept in a cryogenic freezer, which allows the extracts to retain optimum terpenes, potency and medicinal benefits. They also have an exclusive, state-of-the-art commercial press for their low temp-extracted, solventless rosin.

For their friends and fans, Apothecary Farms hosts a monthly event called AMBROSIADAZE, which includes a ride from Denver on a Loopr bus where you can sample their latest and tastiest terps before arriving at the store for meet-and-greets with special guests, snacks and refreshments, plus all kinds of giveaways and surprises.

Immediately after graduating with a business degree from Elmhurst College in 2012, Melissa made her way to the safe smoking haven of Colorado, where her love for live music and music blogging eventually led her to a part-time writing position with DOPE Magazine. Melissa enjoys medicating with indica-dominant hybrids, and will never say no to a big solventless glob. When she isn’t busy writing, Melissa loves spending her time in the mountains with friends, practicing her violin, and exploring the never-ending amounts of dank breweries and restaurants in Denver.
