New Mexico’s favorite green plant might be green chile, but a close second is cannabis. According to BestLife our state has 18,990 adult marijuana users per capita. That’s a lot of reefer! And much like green chile, we pride ourselves on producing some of the best pot that money can buy across the nation. Now that we’ve legalized adult-use cannabis, cannabis users are excitedly waiting for recreational dispensaries to open their doors next year—but for medical cannabis patients, the best marijuana is already available for purchase. So clean out that pipe, and get ready to reach new highs with Albuquerque’s best cannabis products.
