Dank by Pank – Boulder, CO
Dank by Pank is an up-and-coming cannabis wholesale company owned and operated by the original founders of Trill Alternatives in Boulder. Their connection with the local scientific community has helped their growers develop highly effective cultivation methods while advancing and preserving their bank of rare, sought-after genetics. Their slogan? “People always need kush!” I always prefer the vibe of a Mom-and-Pop garden over a larger company—the experience always feels a bit more intimate and genuine. I felt welcomed and right at home after only a few minutes with the Dank by Pank crew.
Pulling up to their facility in the heart of Boulder, I didn’t really know what to expect. Once we arrived and met the team, I couldn’t wait to see their flowers. We only visited one of their flowering rooms, but saw what the final product looks like—and their buds mean serious business. The team makes the most of their space, and a new, 30,000-square-foot facility to keep up with production demands is currently underway. When it comes to the garden’s design and infrastructure, Dank by Pank mimics the plants’ natural environment and implements sustainable practices wherever possible.
There are few things I love more than exploring a new garden and smelling fresh strains. Even though these plants still had a few weeks to go, I couldn’t believe how pungent and resinous they already were! Some of their strains were seriously unique, such as Purple Blue City Diesel, Champelli, Kerosene Kush, Lemon Le Pew, and one of their house signature strains, Don Shula. Through constant development of various growing aspects, including breeding methods, genome research and terpene analysis, Dank by Pank is quickly becoming a big player in the Boulder cannabis community. Aside from growing flower, they also produce and sell top-grade seeds and clones—they’re quite the genetic gurus!
