Natty Rems – Denver, CO
Natty Rems (aka Natural Remedies) became one of Denver’s first medicinal dispensaries back in 2009, and has also flourished as a recreational dispensary since 2014. In 2015 they started Concentrate Remedies (CRx), an in-house concentrate line that keeps the Denver dabbers flocking back for more. I personally smoke more CRx concentrates than any other company in town, so naturally I was thrilled to have the chance to visit their garden and observe their plants firsthand.
We were blown away by the size of the facility we visited, and the whole Natty Rems crew was functioning like clockwork. We met everyone in the building, from the growers and trimmers to the daily operations and social media handlers. Everyone had a smile on their face and was eager to show us the fruits of their labor. We not only saw the flowers up close, but also got to watch the plants being processed. I appreciated getting to see the freezer full of top-shelf buds being prepped for Live Resin production. Definitely not something you get to see every day.
I had high expectations going into this garden. The regular flowering rooms were great, but what really stood out to me were the plants in the long run rooms. These are the plants that are given a few extra weeks to really prosper and mature. Each leaf was reaching towards the lights, making the plants look especially tall and vigorous. Natty Rems has always been known for their top notch genetics, and I have to say their Bob Saget was among the best I’ve ever seen. All their plants are watered and trimmed by hand, and I was stoked to learn that Natty Rems has never failed a microbial test. Even though the garden was absolutely booming, the real treat was getting to peek inside the extraction lab. The team made sure we got to see (and smell) the best of what they had cooking, which included the absolutely dankest Gorilla Glue and UK Cheese Live Diamonds.
