The Verdes Foundation is a nonprofit organization and is one of the longest operating dispensaries in New Mexico. Started in 2010 by Eric Speegle and his father Doug Speegle, the dispensary and grow operation quickly expanded to become one of New Mexico’s largest and most highly regarded dispensaries.
Our goal is to provide the highest quality medicine for the best possible outcome. This path to wellness starts when you walk through our door. Once you sign up as a patient with Verdes, you are given a free gram sample or pre-roll, so as you can begin to identify what works best for you. Verdes carries a large variety of products including edibles, tinctures, salves and, of course our flowers. All our medicine is grown pesticide free and with the utmost care.
Verdes is focused on wellness. Our dispensary is operated by registered nurses and both our dispensary and grow facility are family owned and operated. We employ over 40 New Mexicans and serve over 3,000 medical cannabis patients in New Mexico. All Verdes Customer Service Providers are extremely knowledgeable and have been trained by the RN’s on staff to ensure patients are given safe and accurate information. Verdes employees have completed multiple industry certifications and travel at least once a year to National conferences, where they are educated on current medical cannabis standards.
Verdes is constantly innovating and adapting our growing techniques to provide our patients the best medical cannabis possible. At the Verdes Foundation, we do not use pesticides and each stage of the growth cycle is highly controlled to produce the best quality plants to suit our patients’ needs.
The team at Verdes is very involved in creating responsible public policy for medical cannabis. We are actively involved with The American Cannabis Nurses Association, National Cannabis Industry Association, Students for Sensible Drug Policy, New Mexico Medical Cannabis Patient’s Alliance, and Women Grow.
The Verdes Foundation works closely with the New Mexico Department of Health, meeting all quality and regulatory requirements.
