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…

Heylo helps people use cannabis to get more out of life.
Education and transparency define our team, lab process, and cannabis products. We create whole-bud, full-spectrum cannabis extracts curated to life experiences. You’ll find rare terpenes, minor cannabinoids, and unique chemistry in every Heylo product.

We specialize in crafting high-terpene extracts as well as CBD and rare-cannabinoid strains. We work with pesticide-free and sustainable growers to deliver a product that is free from harmful contaminants. We only process Heylo products with full-bud cannabis – never trim or sugar leaf. We share all of our analytical results for greater transparency and education. We emphasize sustainability at every stage of production and operation. We take tremendous care to preserve terpenes for better taste and experience and are forever grateful to our customers for feedback and support.
