16 Cannabis Lifestyle Trends That Helped Define 2016

The Cannabist, December 28, 2016

Pesticides remain a hot topic — from decimating wildlife to Scotts Miracle-Gro pumping $500 million into the industry to corner the market. Enter Colorado’s Organic Cannabis Association, which developed a pesticide-free certification program this year. “We are well past time to bring basic transparency and safety like we have in food into cannabis, and we intend to do that both with our pesticide-free certification and an organic standard,” says OCA founder and board chair John-Paul Maxfield. “We will be running a bill next year that will allow official organic certification next summer.” Amy Andrle of L’Eagle, a Denver retailer and grower, also serves on the association’s board and tells the New York Times. “As pot consumers are becoming more sophisticated, there’s nothing like the value of a third-party certifier to give growers a marketing edge.”

The Definitive Cannabis Travel Guide to Denver

Leafly, June 10, 2016

At 4:20 p.m., you’re: Arriving at L’Eagle, an all-organic dispensary with the best bud in Denver.

It’s located in an industrial park just outside of the city, so head there directly from the airport in a Lyft or take a slight detour for one last stop on your road trip. With its grow facility on site, L’Eagle produces 100 percent organic cannabis (AKA no pesticides ever) with super knowledgeable budtenders (ask for Courtney) to help guide you through the long list of strains and highly curated edible offerings. Go for what L’Eagle is known for: Death Star (indica) and Strawberry Cough (sativa) to pack into a new piece from the solid glass and vaporizer selection, or pick up a 10-pack of pre-rolled “shorties” ($60) from the rotating “Joint Menu.”

Courtney Clark: Best Budtender

Denver Westword “Best of Denver 2016”

Our publication is no stranger to L’Eagle: The dispensary has won numerous awards in our yearly top-ten lists and Best of Denver editions for its talent in the grow room. But the shop also claims one of the finest budtenders in town: Courtney Clark. A pot encyclopedia packaged in a bubbly, pint-sized sweetheart of a woman, Clark can talk shop with master growers or make nervous first-timers feel comfortable about strains and pot products they’ve never tried before. “I know quite a bit about cannabis, but I still ask Courtney what I should take home with me,” says L’Eagle co-owner Amy Andrle. Clark’s knowledge and love for her shop’s products is hard to put a lid on as she describes Strawberry Cough or indica baklava bites, leaving you smarter — and smiling — on your way out.

Best Sour Diesel (2015)

Westword, 2015

If dispensaries are like restaurants, then Sour Diesel is the cheeseburger and fries of marijuana: Everyone grows it, but some people do it way better than others. It’s a great barometer for a shop’s quality, because if the store isn’t doing Sour D right, it probably isn’t getting much else correct, either. Thankfully, L’Eagle Services grows it proper. The buds are 100 percent organic-fed, slow-dried and cured for at least a month, giving L’Eagle’s Sour D the full citrus/fuel smells and flavors you expect from this strain.

The shop’s warehouse-front location stands out for it’s surroundings not because of the industrially artistic orange corrugated tin siding, but due to the immaculate flower garden out front. First thought: The petunias and sage look good enough to smoke.
