Venerable pot magazine High Times has been focusing on Colorado quite a bit over the last few years, including naming Colorado strains as the most potent staffers have seen and bringing their annual Cannabis Cup events to the Mile High City.

This month's High Times feature keeps up that trend, with editor Bobby taking a tour of two of Denver's largest hash-making labs, Pink House Labs and Top Shelf Extracts, and sharing how they crank out consistent concentrates.

As best we can tell, the article talks about the dab scene in Denver, the medical benefits of highly concentrated cannabis extracts and the people that make them.

Derek Cumings, who helps head-up production of BHO and other concentrates for Pink House and was featured in the article, posted a few shots of the article along with his appreciation for the recognition on Facebook yesterday.

"I've said it many times... Pills were killing me and cannabis saved me," he writes, adding, "Huge thanks to Bobby Black for letting me get that same word out to the masses in the middle of the oil feature. Glad to be part of the dab revolution.. Much love to all the Colorado fam getting love in this issue

We haven't gotten our hands on the article yet, but High Times did post a fifteen-minute video report on the scene; part one features Cumings and his work. Check it out below and look for High Times on newsstands now (it isn't up online yet, or we'd link you up).
