When recreational dispensaries first opened in Colorado, they grew virtually all of the weed that their customers bought. This wasn't out of choice: State laws at the time mandated that dispensaries cultivate their own cannabis in order to minimize black-market trafficking. But times have changed, and so has the way we get our weed.

Now that dispensaries are no longer limited by vertical integration laws, the majority of pot shops get large portions of their inventory, if not all of it, from wholesale growers. While wholesale cannabis doesn't necessarily mean a dip in quality or hike in price, some consumers prefer putting a face and name to people supplying their herb. For those farm-to-table-loving tokers, here are some of our favorite Denver-area dispensaries that stock their shelves only with pot they grow themselves.
