Verde Natural – Boulder, CO
Verde Natural was one of the first dispensaries I ever visited in Denver, and I’m thrilled to see their company expand. I tend to prefer dispensaries that have the environment in mind above all else, and Verde Natural never fails to impress me with their sustainable practices! They’re one of the only dispensaries to encourage customers to recycle their plastic flower containers, and recently came out with reusable jars so customers can avoid using plastic completely! Their new jars come in three different sizes and are 100 percent compliant with Colorado’s cannabis container regulations. They’re also made out of glass, so they keep your herb smelling (and tasting) even better.
Nestled in the heart of Boulder, the new store looks like a quaint cottage from a fairytale, somehow transported to its suburban neighborhood location. Inside, Verde has one of the most beautiful, open spaces I’ve ever seen in a dispensary! Tons of warm, natural lighting, and succulents alongside wooden interior accents make for an inviting, relaxing environment. I always feel uncomfortable in a cramped dispensary with harsh or fluorescent lighting, and that’s definitely not an issue here. Conveniently located just minutes from the Pearl Street Mall, it’s the perfect spot to stop in and stock up on any of your cannabis needs.
At Verde Natural, flower is the star of the show. Their small-batch cannabis is cultivated in recycled soil, another point for sustainability, and fed an all-organic diet of naturally occurring nutrients. Verde strives to mimic each plant’s ecosystem in order to maximize its natural flavor and potency profile. Everyone uses cannabis for different purposes, so Verde created a system to help each customer find exactly what they’re looking for. Simply choose a category between Relaxation, Meditation, Creativity, Focus, Energy or Recovery, and a Verde Natural budtender will take care of the rest. A few strains that stuck out to me were their Key Lime Pie, Papaya, Hazelnut Cream and Hell Monkey. Besides amazing flower, you can also find a great selection of edibles and concentrates, including Dablogic, Verde’s solventless, in-house concentrate line!
