It’s been a cold few weeks if you live in the North American midwest. Inconveniently, that’s where lots of the U.S.’s weed is grown. These two forces combined to produce a devastating loss for Pueblo, Colorado-based Los Sueños Farms, the state’s largest grower of cannabis.

According to MJBizDaily, some 20,000 plants were destroyed by frost before harvest could begin. 

Now there are fears, with so much product knocked offline, that Colorado’s supply will be affected. 

The farm isn’t calling it a complete loss, though.  “We had some beautiful crops,” the farm’s founder said. “And of what we got we have some beautiful bud to sell.”
