Green Dot Labs Announces Flower Preview Release

Green Dot Labs is proud to announce our first ever release of flower from our Black Label genetic library. This limited preview release represents years of passionate exploration of nature’s more perfect plant and her endless possibilities while highlighting our next chapter of expansion in Colorado and our ongoing investment in our home state’s thriving cannabis culture.

We have dedicated our lives to breeding and growing exceptional weed, and while GDL has grown and evolved, our internal compass has always centered around the cannabis plant. Our flower is a reflection of our lifelong passion and commitment to showcasing cannabis of the highest quality without any compromises or shortcuts.

On Saturday, September 7, consumers will have their first opportunity to taste our 21st Century Hashplants in their original form – the sticky, intensely flavorful buds that make our coveted Black Label hash.

The varietals we selected for the release tell the story of our breeding program with two phenotypes of Garlic Banger (Headbanger x HSB) – 6 and 9 – and Lemon Wreath (Chem Brûlée x Secret Kush Mints). Every batch reflects our quality in, quality out ethos.

The obsessive care and attention to detail that begins in the garden guides every step of our process, whether we’re curing flower or preserving extracted resin. For flower, our plants are harvested on the earlier side, resulting in a more pronounced flavor, a euphoric, heady high, and a quicker recovery time. After harvest, the flowers are trimmed by hand to prevent bumps and bruises and are cured within strictly controlled conditions in a process we have fine-tuned over many years. The result is a velvety smooth smoke with a clean white ash. It’s gentle on the throat and lungs, letting you appreciate the hash-like flavor and keep smoking until you’re satisfied.

Our flower is grown, trimmed, and cured by GDL team members driven by their passion for cannabis, for those who love weed as much as we do. As we celebrate our fifth year making hash in Colorado, we’re thrilled to give you a taste of the incredible plant that inspires us every day. We love weed, and we only grow what we would smoke ourselves. We can’t wait to share it with you.

Green Dot Labs flower will be available on Saturday, September 7 at the retailers below. Sign up to receive emails from GDL or follow @greendotlabsboulder for the latest news and info on this and all of our upcoming releases.

First introduced for the group’s 2018 Winter Tour dates in Colorado, Gobnugget is a pure, uncut live resin blend derived from two intensely flavorful varietals from our Black Label garden. Notes of sour lime and sweet grape soda come courtesy of Citradelic Sunset (Ghost Train Haze x Mandarin Sunset) with vivid lavender from the GDL-bred varietal Bottle Wash (Wookie x OZ Kush).

Introducing Sex on the Beach

At Green Dot Labs, we are on a quest to uncover and share the most exotic and exciting flavor profiles possible in the cannabis plant. This mission drives our breeding program, which draws on a vast library of cornerstone cannabis genetics and varietals with distinctive, unusual terpene profiles rarely seen in today’s market to create unusual, intensely flavorful 21st century hash plants that evoke a wide range of sensory experiences. 

Out of the hundreds of crosses bred and meticulously pheno hunted in our facility in Boulder, Colorado, more than 60 have been introduced to consumers under our Black Label line of grown and extracted in-house concentrates.  Of those, a few varietals stand out as standard-bearers with a permanent place among our offerings.  

Now, we are celebrating these signature Green Dot Labs varietals in a series of releases that put the one of a kind nature of our most compelling strains front and center. Concentrates from each selection will be presented in packaging featuring specially-commissioned artists’ designs inspired by its unique story, lineage or flavor profile.  

As part of our lineup of signature Green Dot Labs strains, we are excited to introduce you to an instant classic that embodies our passion for the cannabis plant’s endless possibilities. Sex on the Beach (Paradise Island x HSB) is our homage to everything created by love. Its aphrodisiac effects and flavor profile with vivid notes of strawberry, candied pineapple, and coconut bring to mind a Piña Colada sipped on a beachside getaway with someone special. The design featured on the packaging for every .5mL Live Resin Cartridge and Live Badder gram of Sex on the Beach echoes the strain’s romantic island vacation vibe. 

Sex on the Beach Live Resin Cartridges and Live Badder grams are available at select preferred retailers including the following:

Green Dot Labs x The Disco Biscuits Present the On42 Limited Release + Miracle Ticket Giveaway

Green Dot Labs is kicking off an incredible season of live music with a new collaboration with one of our all time favorite bands—The Disco Biscuits!

The On42 Limited Release drops on May 6, just in time for fans to stock up before the Biscuits’ sold out 2019 Bisco Inferno run at the Ogden Theatre on May 23 and 24 and at Red Rocks on May 25.

The On42 Limited Release features a custom blend of two Black Label extracts, available in dabbable and vape format. The low-profile .5mL Live Resin Cartridge is the perfect accessory for one (or three) nights of The Disco Biscuits’ legendary live jams and is sold with a custom-branded, variable-temp GDL battery. The dabbable 1g Live Badder offers smooth and velvety lemon and gas flavor to compliment your at-home live streaming.  Both products are presented in special edition packaging with a brilliant design that reflects the electric, mind-expanding Biscuits live show experience that is a major source of inspiration for GDL.

GDL Founder Dave Malone and The Disco Biscuits sampled a wide range of extracts from our Black Label garden in search of the perfect strains for the band’s first branded cannabis concentrate. After deciding to create a product reflecting two wildly different but equally beloved terpene profiles, lemon and gas, the group taste-tested many selections from the company’s extensive genetic library. Ultimately, they selected Sour Best Lemons (SBSE x Lemon Tree/NL) and Dubble OG (Legend OG x Sour Dubble) for the combination’s distinctive, intense pine, gas, and lemon terpene profile and decided to name their new blend for the beloved Disco Biscuits’ song “42.”

Every On42 product includes a code to enter the On42 Miracle Ticket giveaway at Four lucky fans will win Red Rocks Miracle Tickets that include two tickets to Bisco Inferno at Red Rocks on May 25, access to the backstage VIP On42 Lounge, and a photo with the band. One Grand Prize Miracle Ticket winner will score two tickets to all three Denver dates (May 23, 24, and 25), a tour of Red Rocks with a band member, On42 Lounge access, and a photo with the band. The Grand Prize Miracle Ticket winner will be announced on May 21, Red Rocks Miracle Ticket winners will be announced on May 23, and three lucky recipients of special Disco Biscuits merch packs will be announced on May 28.

All are invited to a special Disco Biscuits meet and greet on Friday, May 24 at Kind Love from 2:30-3 pm during our pre-show pop up from 12-5 pm. The first 42 fans to show proof of their On42 purchase from Kind Love will receive a limited edition screen print poster featuring artwork from the collaboration. If you can’t join us at Kind Love, stop by one of our pre-show pop ups to stock up on On42 and get 20% off additional Black Label products (restrictions apply). On Thursday, May 23, we’ll be just down the street from the Ogden at LivWell on Pearl from 5:30-8:30 p.m. And on Saturday, we’ll be at A Cut Above on South Broadway from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m.

In addition to the band meet and greet, we will be hosting a series of pop ups to celebrate this very special collab.

Green Dot Labs and The Disco Biscuits will donate a portion of proceeds from every purchase to the Cannabis Voter Project, an initiative from the voter engagement organization that aims to educate voters on cannabis policy.

March is Member Berry Month at Green Dot Labs

This month, we’re highlighting one of our favorite exotic berry strains for our Black Label varietal feature: Member Berry (Skunkberry x Mandarin Sunset).

Member Berry is so pungent it’s borderline obnoxious. With Skunkberry and Mandarin Sunset (Herijuana x Skunkberry) for parents, it has deep roots in the skunk lineage. Herijuana’s potency comes through in this varietal with a dopey, deeply relaxing high, and skunky terpenes from both parents bring an overwhelming intensity to the palate with additional notes of frankincense and assorted berries.

Member Berry is one of the loudest strains in the Black Label garden, and one of the best yielding in terms of both resin and flower weight. The plant is so greasy that it feels wet to the touch.

Explore this skunky, heavy hitting Black Label varietal with our lineup of Live Badder, FSE (in 1 and 4 gram jars), and FSE Cartridges available all month long. Find a retailer near you from the list (updated weekly) below, and share your experience on Instagram by posting with @greendotlabsboulder and #MemberBerryMonth.

February is Original G Month

Every month, Green Dot Labs puts the spotlight on a rare or exclusive varietal from our Black Label Garden. For February, we’re featuring Original G (Lemon G x Daywrecker).

Original G is the result of a collaboration between GDL Co-Founder Dave Malone and Colorado breeder Cannarado back in the day. They reversed the sex on Dave’s Lemon G and extracted pollen then used to make feminized hybrids. Daywrecker (Chem ’91 x Super Skunk x NL) was Dave’s first target for breeding.

The most balanced representation of Lemon G13 and Daywrecker made the final cut, featuring the complex gas and lemon rind flavor palate that has made Original G a staple in our Black Label lineup since it was introduced. The plant is highly productive, yielding large, greasy, lemon-scented flowers.

Like almost all lemon-forward dabs, Original G has energizing effects that make it a great pick to start your day.

Green Dot Labs is highlighting this citrusy, diesel-soaked classic with a full Black Label lineup, including FSE, Live Badder, and .5 mL FSE Carts.

Find Original G at one of our retail partners listed here, and share your tasting experience on Instagram or Facebook by tagging @greendotlabsboulder with hashtag #OriginalGMonth.

January is Gunslinger Month

We’re kicking off 2019 with a deliciously fruity new Black Label varietal feature! January is Gunslinger (Starfighter x Stardawg) Month, highlighting our classic watermelon chem.

It may be the middle of winter, but Gunslinger is a classic taste of summer, with an unmistakable watermelon gummy and ripe fresh watermelon flavor profile.

A can’t-miss for both fruit and chem lovers, Gunslinger was bred by Greenpoint Seeds using GDL Founder Dave Malone’s F1 Stardawg. A staple of our genetic library, Stardawg F1 was one of the first strains ever produced under our Black Label line and is the dad for both Gunslinger and Copper Chem, another classic Black Label varietal.

Gunslinger is a terpene-producing powerhouse beloved for its vivid fruity flavor. The uplifting, euphoric, clear-headed effects make it a versatile choice well suited for any activity. 

Throughout the month of January, Gunslinger will be available from select retailers in three finishes: Full Spectrum Extract (FSE), Live Badder, and FSE Cartridges. Find a retailer near you from the list (updated weekly) below and share your experience on Instagram by posting with @greendotlabsboulder and #GunslingerMonth.

STS9 and Green Dot Labs Partner for New Year’s 2018 Gobnugget Drop

Green Dot Labs and STS9 are joining forces again as the legendary instrumental music collective returns to Colorado to close out an epic 2018. The latest chapter in an ongoing collaboration, our new Gobnugget drop and Golden Ticket Giveaway celebrates the STS9’s return to Denver for a four-night New Year’s 2018 run taking place December 28 – 31.  

The New Year’s 2018 drop features our coveted Gobnugget .5mL Black Label Full Spectrum Extract (FSE) Cartridges presented in special edition packaging designed with STS9 to reflect their extraterrestrial vibe. Each purchase includes a variable-temp Gobnugget battery and sticker, and a download link for live music from STS9. We are also continuing a tradition of giving back, with a portion of proceeds benefitting Conscious Alliance, a Boulder-based nonprofit that feeds the hungry through organized food drives at music and sporting events. 

Fans will also have the chance to win a Golden Ticket for special prizes when they purchase Gobnugget in Denver and Boulder. One Gobnugget box each at Kind Love, A Cut Above, and LivWell Pearl holds a golden ticket for two to attend STS9’s Fillmore Auditorium show on December 28. In Boulder, golden tickets for a special selection of STS9 vinyl and swag await at Boulder Wellness, Eclipse Cannabis Company, and The Peaceful Choice.  

First introduced for the group’s 2018 Winter Tour dates in Colorado, Gobnugget FSE cartridges are filled with pure, uncut live resin derived from two intensely flavorful varietals from our Black Label garden. Notes of sour lime and sweet grape soda come courtesy of Citradelic Sunset (Ghost Train Haze x Mandarin Sunset) with vivid lavender from the GDL-bred varietal Bottle Wash (Wookie x OZ Kush). 

We’re grateful for this chance to continue our collaboration with our friends from STS9, and to share the deeply inspiring creative connection between music and cannabis with our fellow fans. For tickets to STS9’s Red Rocks performances and other tour dates, visit

Black Label Experience Tasting Flight Guide

The varietals in your Black Label Tasting Flight share a common flavor note, though they might otherwise taste and smell very different. Try this simple taste test to make the most of your Black Label Tasting Experience and deepen your understanding of the rich, nuanced flavors of full spectrum extracts.

Step 1: Dry Pull Test
With the battery set to off, take a few pulls from your cart. What is your first impression of the flavor?

Step 2: Vapor Test
Turn your GDL-branded battery on (5 clicks). Enter ultra-low temp “Sesh Mode” (2 clicks) for optimal flavor with minimal effects. Take your time between each step and restart Sesh Mode (2 clicks) as needed.

  1. Inhale to take a comfortable pull. Hold the vapor in your mouth for 3-4 seconds and exhale.
  2. Take a deeper, longer pull and exhale the vapor rapidly through your mouth and nose.
  3. Take a medium pull and exhale all the vapor rapidly through your mouth.

When you’re done, click the button five times to turn the battery off.

Step 3: Reflect & Take Notes
Think about the flavors and aromas you just experienced. Did the flavors evolve or linger? Did the tasting spark any memories, images, or emotions (good or bad)? Note where you felt the flavors throughout your mouth and nose. Add this info to your tasting notes.

  • Compare your notes to the tasting notes on the packaging. How was your tasting the same or different?
    Find time later to repeat the taste test and take notes. Compare your experience this time to the last. Were some flavors more intense or entirely new?

Keep tasting and taking notes over time. Your palate will become more refined over time, revealing a world of subtle flavors from the dozens of terpenes present in the raw essential oils of cannabis and adding a new level of enjoyment to your experience.

Presenting Black Label Experience Tasting Flights

Green Dot Labs is excited to announce the debut of our Black Label Experience Tasting Flights. An ideal way to explore our vividly flavorful Black Label extracts, the varietals highlighted in each of four flights – Floral, Gas, Tropical, and Cocktail – share a common tasting note (and possibly a common lineage).

Each Black Label Experience Tasting Flight features two .5 mL Full Spectrum Extract (FSE) Cartridges with vivid, unique flavor profiles that place them clearly within one of the four flavor categories. Initial selections include:

Mai Thai (Sunset Sherbert x Purple Punch) – Tropical Fruit Cocktail
Fuzzy Navel (Headbanger x Han Solo Burger) – Orange Push-Up Pop & Peach Daiquiri

Gunslinger (Starfighter x Stardawg) – Watermelon Gummy Slices, Fresh Ripe Watermelon
Member Berry (Skunkberry x Mandarin Sunset) – Frankincense, Assorted Berries

Fatso (GMO x Legend OG) – Dark Roast Coffee, Garlic, Fuel
Infinity OG (Underdawg OG x I95) – Gas, Earth, Bitter Skunk

OZ Kush (Zkittlez x OG Eddy Lepp) – Sugary Grape, Complex
Screaming Flo-G (Flo x Screaming OG) – Lilac, Fuel, Earthy

Perfect for gifting or sharing, the Tasting Flights are presented in vibrantly colorful packaging that reflect our creative inspirations. Each flight includes a three-step tasting guide designed to activate the palate and guide users’ exploration of the extracts’ rich flavors and aromas, which you can also find on our blog. The flights also come with a custom GDL-branded battery selected to provide the optimal balance of flavor and effect.

Black Label Experience Tasting Flights are an ideal way to enjoy cannabis extracts of the highest quality with your friends and family. The connoisseur-level experience will feel familiar to anyone who has enjoyed a tasting of wine, beer, or spirits.

Product “effects” marketed by many cannabis companies to guide consumer choices are inconsistent, if not purely persuasive. Flavor, however, is a simple and deeply personal way to explore the cannabis plant’s essential oils. By letting flavor preference guide consumer choice, GDL is offering a more accessible, tangible, and reliable way to experience and enjoy our signature line of extracts.

Currently, our Black Label Experience Flights can be purchased exclusively at Kind Love – just in time for holiday gifting.

November is Headbanger Month

November is Headbanger (Sour Diesel x OG Kush) month at Green Dot Labs! Our latest monthly varietal feature highlight is a sour leaning, new-age headband hybrid bred by Karma Genetics.

Headbanger is one of the best-selling varietals in our Gas Pack flight, a selection of Black Label strains with fuel-heavy flavor palates, and with good reason. This varietal boasts a deep and complex gas palate with sour and fuel notes that evolve on the palate.

Headbanger’s dynamic, interesting expression of the much-loved gas profile makes it an ideal choice to explore in the different Black Label Rec finishes – FSE, FSE Carts, Live Badder, and (HC)FSE – being offered this month. Find a retailer near you from the list (updated weekly) below, and share your experience on Instagram by including @greendotlabsboulder and #HeadbangerMonth in your post.

We’re Upgrading our Black Label Medical Cultivation Program

We have some big news to share about our medical cultivation program.  Over the past year, we’ve focused significant time and energy on our new adult-use cultivation facility. But we’ve also been listening to the many medical patients who’ve asked us to expand the genetic diversity and availability of our medical concentrates.

Colorado’s medical patients have been integral to our success since day one, and we have always been passionate about the medicinal benefits of the cannabis plant. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the next phase for our medical Black Label garden.

We recently began an ambitious renovation and upgrade of our Black Label medical grow – our first garden to feature only GDL strains bred exclusively from seed in-house. The garden will be updated with brand-new flooring, walls, and other structural improvements to form a strong base for innovation.

We’ve fine-tuned our cultivation methodology at our adult-use facility, and we are looking forward to applying that knowledge to increase production and advance our genetic program for medical production. Patients will benefit from these changes with an incredible selection of 40 new medical strains featuring exotic new genetics that honor and re-imagine essential GDL varietals. The new varietals will be offered in both dabbable extracts and FSE carts, designed exclusively for the Colorado patients who have supported us since the beginning.

Our perpetual harvest model, combined with the top-down updates we’re undertaking, mean that there will be a brief interruption to our medical plant supply. We understand that access to medicine is important to patients, and we waited to make this transition until the last possible moment to make the period of restricted availability as brief as possible.

In the meantime, we have our patients covered. We are sourcing exceptional plant material from a thoroughly vetted group of respected cultivation partners to ensure our patients continue to have access to an extensive selection of affordable, GDL-curated Silver Label Badder, Full Spectrum Extracts and .5 mL FSE Pen cartridges.

At the same time, we are partnering with select medical retailers to offer discounts for current 21+ medical card holders on all GDL Black Label products to make them more accessible for patients opting for adult-use options. The 20% discount is designed to offset the increase in cost to patients from special state and local sales taxes on adult-use cannabis  products. You must be 21 or older due to restrictions on adult-use sales, with a valid Colorado medical, to receive the discount.

Participating locations include the following:

We anticipate limited availability for Black Label medical products for the next 18 weeks, with our new medical genetics slated to debut in force in  February 2019.  For updates and announcements about our new and improved Black Label medical cultivation program, and information on medical products and deals during the transition, follow us on Instagram and Facebook, or keep an eye on this blog.

Thank you for your patience and support as we work to bring you an exciting new selection of Black Label medical genetics.

Gobnugget Release Kicks Off Expanded STS9 x GDL Collab

Nearly a year after launching the Artifact Edition Limited Release, Green Dot Labs is proud to announce an expanded, ongoing partnership with the instrumental music collective (and major GDL creative inspiration) STS9. This exciting next phase in our collaboration will kick off just in time for STS9’s “Cave of Crystals” shows at Red Rocks on Sept. 7 and 8 with a special release of Gobnugget Full Spectrum Extract .5mL Cartridges.

The release highlights the exclusive Gobnugget flavor blend introduced earlier this year for STS9’s winter tour dates in Colorado. The cartridges are filled with the uncut, whole plant-derived essential oils of two outrageously flavorful varietals from our Black Label garden. Notes of sour lime and sweet grape soda come courtesy of Citradelic Sunset (Ghost Train Haze x Mandarin Sunset) with vivid lavender from the GDL-bred varietal Bottle Wash (Wookie x OZ Kush).

While Gobnugget FSE Carts will be offered year-round as part of our Black Label FSE Pen lineup, the special release celebrating STS9’s return to Red Rocks features a limited-edition box and, for the first time, a battery with the latest version of the extraterrestrial, black-and-gold design created with guidance from STS9. Each pen comes with a link to download STS9’s Red Rocks run from last year, and you’ll have a chance to win a pair of tickets to one of the shows when you purchase your pen from select retailers. As with previous collaborations, we’ll be donating a portion of proceeds to Conscious Alliance, a Boulder-based nonprofit that feeds the hungry through organized food drives at music and sporting events.

Ticket Giveaway @ Kind Love
Want to check out the show? We’re teaming up with our retail partner Kind Love. Purchase your Gobnugget pen at Kind Love starting on Tues., Sep. 4 for a chance to win a pair fo tickets to the Friday show during daily drawings Sep. 5 – Sep. 7.

Check Out Our Expanded Selection of Black Label Live Badder

Our cultivation and extraction facility has been working overtime lately on new and exciting expressions of our full spectrum extracts. In April, we launched our Black Label Full Spectrum Extract Pens, our first-ever line of vape cartridges. Then we unveiled Black Label Live Rosin, our first ever solventless extracts. Now we’re expanding our production of Live Badder, an entirely distinctive version of our full spectrum extracts that offers subtly different consistency, flavor experience, and effects than our well-known “rocks and sauce” FSE.

Live badder is created by emulsifying the essential oils of the whole, fresh-frozen cannabis plant. The process eradicates residual solvents and results in a concentrate that has a malleable, uniform consistency similar to wet cake batter. We find that this finish offers the ideal combination of ultra-rich flavor, potency, homogeneity, and next-level smoothness. GDL Black Label Live Badders are perfect for cannabis connoisseurs who enjoy the mouth-coating richness of live rosin and the vibrant flavor profiles of FSE. Add silky, homogenous smoothness and you’ve got GDL Live Badder!

We first delved into this world with the release of our Fatso badder in May, part of a suite of products we produced that month to celebrate the unparalleled hash-producing Cannarado varietal Fatso (GMO x Legend OG) — an impeccable showcase for the highest quality BHO production possible. With new releases that will eventually stretch to dozens of varietals, we’re doubling down on the technique, releasing badder in a variety of exclusive Black Label cuts from our genetic library.

Badder, with its uniform, emulsified consistency, may not have the eye-catching Instagrammable appeal of our FSE, with its terpene-drenched THC-a diamonds. But what badder lacks in bling it makes up for in smoothness and wild, unmatched flavor. Dave describes it as the rib eye of steaks. And unlike rocks and sauce, which requires the right balance of crystals and liquid in each dab and can get a little tough to handle, every dab of badder is easy to grab and is exactly the same with every dab – the perfect balance of terpenes, cannabinoids, and rich, velvety taste.

Sometimes it’s fun to be your own dabbing bartender, mixing and matching rocks and sauce in your dabs to customize a FSE cocktail exactly to taste. Other times, you want an easy, plush hit like a creamy sip of a rich English stout beer or a decadently round port. Our Black Label Live Badders offer outstanding depth and dimension, and we think you’ll agree that the results are as smooth and delicious as anything we’ve ever created.

To find out where you can pick up our badder, visit our “Find Our Products” page on our website.

Introducing Black Label Live Rosin, Green Dot Labs’ First Solventless Extract

Our fans have been asking for us to release solventless extracts for years. But we have long avoided doing so because we were concerned that SHO couldn’t compare to the quality levels of the butane-extracted live resin we built our reputation on. Now, however, thanks to recent advancements in solventless extraction techniques, we are ready to unveil our first-ever solventless release: Black Label Live Rosin, developed from our exotic and exclusive Black Label varietals and featuring similar levels of purity and excellence that consumers have come to expect from our Black Label extracts.

We applied our obsessive commitment to cannabis to our first solventless offering, and the resulting Black Label Live Rosin is a truly unique, handcrafted expression of the cannabis plant. We selected heavy-hitting varietals from our extensive genetics library that produce abundant resins and feature the ideal trichome structures for this hands-on, intensive extraction method. These varietals are cultivated in-house before their terpene- and cannabinoid-rich trichome heads are carefully extracted by hand using artisanal cold water hash-making techniques. The trichomes are then exposed to a precise combination of heat and pressure to produce a vividly flavorful live rosin that features thousands of live trichome heads in every gram of product. It’s a true 21st century take on timeless hash-making traditions, a fusion of cutting-edge breeding practices and ancient extraction methodologies.

We are proud to offer you this new way to appreciate the distinctive flavors and vivid effects of our rare and exclusive cannabis varietals. It’s a modern-day take on the age-old hash traditions that have long inspired our work. It’s an honor to be preserving and elevating these extraction methods through innovative breeding and rigorous lab methodologies, and the product reflects our never-ending pursuit of pure and distinctive expressions of cannabis.

Due to its labor-intensive production process, our Black Label Live Rosin will only be available in small batches. Pick up a gram or two before they’re gone at Kind Love and A Cut Above in Denver. For up-to-date drop information, visit the “Find Our Products” page on our website.
