Verde Natural

Propagation LeadLocation: Denver, CO About Verde Natural & Dablogic: Verde Natural began the first year of Colorado’s legal cannabis market. Since then, we have established ourselves as an industry-leading cultivator and retailer of living soil cannabis. We are best known for producing high quality cannabis flower (Verde), solventless extracts (Dablogic), and high quality hydrocarbon extracts (Fuego), and delivering them via an informed, caring, and passionate staff.
At Verde, we see cannabis as a plant medicine. As such, we believe it should be grown with hands-on love and attention, using only organic inputs in living soil. In fact, our cultivation techniques (and our classic OG strains) were developed in the early days of the medical cannabis market in the legendary Humboldt County, CA.
Today, the Verde Family of Brands has grown into a fully vertically integrated medical and recreational cultivator, retailer, wholesaler, and extractor in both Colorado and California. Each of our brands (Verde, Dablogic, Fuego) is committed to quality, sustainability, and education, because we believe it is our responsibility, as one of the pioneers in this industry, to do things right. That means we have an obsessive dedication to sustainable cultivation techniques with only organic inputs, to offering the highest quality products in sustainable packaging, and to sharing our knowledge of this plant with our communities.
