The Big Tomato, Hydroponic Division of Schwazze, Receives Westword Best of Denver Award for the Best Home Cultivation Store

DENVER, May 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - Schwazze, (OTCQX: SHWZ) (NEO: SHWZ), a premier vertically integrated, multi-state operating cannabis company with assets in Colorado and New Mexico is proud to announce that its hydroponic and indoor gardening brand, The Big Tomato has been named the Best Home Cultivation Store in the city of Denver by Westword magazine.

Westword magazine states, "The Big Tomato was helping home growers long before the dispensary boom, selling indoor gardening supplies for over two decades. Now owned by Schwazze, a Denver-based cannabis corporation, the Big Tomato still offers the same friendly service for newbies and regulars, but now has even more of a cannabis focus — and an online shopping option, to boot. For beginning green thumbs, finding a trustworthy growing store is like searching for a new mechanic; more cynical shops can take advantage of that lack of experience by suggesting unnecessary lighting equipment and nutrients. That's not the case at the Big Tomato, so don't be afraid to ask questions."

"We are honored to receive the Westword award for Best Home Cultivation Store in Denver," said Jeremy Bullock, Vice President - Commercial Sales. "We are proud to serve our community and provide expert advice to an industry that has historically lacked access to information and education about the best practices for cultivating cannabis."

The Big Tomato (Big Tomato) has served the indoor, hydroponic and community of Colorado for over 20 years. Big Tomato predates the hydroponics boom, and offers competitive prices and an extensive selection of expertly curated supplies. The experienced growers at Big Tomato offer superior product knowledge to hobbyists and commercial growers alike. From propagation to harvest, Big Tomato has developed a reputation as the go-to source for all garden supply needs.
