Verde Natural – An Environmentally Conscious & Organic
Founded in 2009, Verde Natural has some exciting endeavors coming up as they plan on going recreational. They are looking forward to opening their doors and products to a wider clientele. Owner and founder, Chuck Blackton aka The Lemon Man, left for Amsterdam in his mid-teens to develop his growing skills. His prized connection while there was to the infamous Lemon Skunk, which he has since been cultivating and nurturing for over 12 years. Chuck’s passion, responsible practices and cheerfully knowledgeable employees are what make Verde Natural a premium dispensary in my book.
If you find yourself in Northeast Denver anytime soon, I urge you to stop by Verde Natural and check out their exquisite selection of homegrown products. Located just east of the intersection at Colorado and Colfax, you can’t really miss the eye-popping green sign indicating their location. Once inside, you’ll notice the shop’s cleanliness and bright, cozy and modern renovations. The neighbors include Nugg’s Ice Cream and Bellwether Coffee, two of my favorite local gems. Ice cream, coffee and heady buds—oh my! With all of the questionable dispensaries running up and down Colfax, rest assured that Verde Natural is top notch, friendly and professional.
Each strain at Verde is homegrown and sold almost exclusively at their retail establishments. Their head grower, a super badass woman, emphasizes the use of nutrient-dense soil and organic formulas which result in a pure, overwhelmingly potent and chemically uncompromised product. If you ask me, a dispensary’s values are directly correlated with the end result. At Verde Natural, their main priority is to use responsible and environmentally conscious methods in their everyday practices. Their grow facilities are equipped with solar panels covering 50,000-square-feet, and they encourage their customers to either recycle or reuse all of the little pop-top bottles that their products are sold in.
“Verde Natural is a company whose actions speak louder than words. Putting the environment and responsible growing practices above all else, their result is an intimate product backed by undeniable quality.”
