Good Weed, Colorado Springs, CO

Ever wonder why you can’t pick up “organic” flowers or concentrates? That US Department of Agriculture organic certification you insist upon for your avocados isn’t available to cannabis growers because, well, the plant remains federally illegal.
Amy and John Andrle, the company’s founders, have been cultivating cannabis to the same standards as that of organic avocado since 2010, and their facility, L’Eagle, was the first indoor recreational cultivation facility to achieve Clean Green certification in 2018.
The national third-party certification holds dispensaries to organic standards, which Ardle views as vital to securing a truly clean cannabis future. It’s not just the choice buds, such as house strain L’Eagle Eagle that are held to the highest standards.
If you’re looking for a tasty terpene treat, try the house-pressed, solvent-free rosin, or splurge on the caviar, which consists of dense nugs hand-dipped in that rosin and then dusted with kief.
Set in LoHi, steps from hot bars, restaurants, and boutiques, this dispensary has it all: premium small-batch cannabis, an array of top-shelf concentrates and edibles, and carefully trained budtenders on call to guide connoisseurs and newbies alike.

Before opening her business, the former Navy lieutenant was a key player on Colorado’s Amendment 64 Task Force implementing legal, adult-use cannabis sales. High Times has recognised her as one of the “100 Most Influential People in Cannabis” for her efforts to keep Simply Pure at the forefront of the industry while also leading the consulting firm Cannabis Global Initiative and fighting tirelessly for equality within the cannabis sector.
