Thankfully, they employ a friendly, knowledgeable staff that can answer all of your questions to help you find what you need, either for yourself, or for the cannabis connoisseur on your shopping list. However, in addition to cannabis, Kind Leaf carries many other locally-made items that can light up the life of anyone, whether they are a regular member of the cannabis community or not. This December, make your Christmas Tree the dankest of them all, or stock the stuffing of a loved one, with a custom Kind Leaf ornament, made locally by JJ and Co.

Congratulations, Cannabis Community! You’re the Supermajority. Celebrate at Kind Leaf.

As many have written about, cannabis legalization was a HUGE winner at the 2020 ballot box, all across the country, in red, blue, and purple states. Gallup’s latest poll shows extremely strong support for ending prohibition, with more than 2/3 of American voters agreeing that it is time to end the war on the cannabis community. The record-breaking 68% support is a reason to celebrate, and there is no better place to relish in another historic day for freedom and liberty than a trip to Kind Leaf, Eastern Oregon’s premier craft cannabis boutique.

From Gallup:

Americans are more likely now than at any point in the past five decades to support the legalization of marijuana in the U.S. The 68% of U.S. adults who currently back the measure is not statistically different from last year’s 66%; however, it is nominally Gallup’s highest reading, exceeding the 64% to 66% range seen from 2017 to 2019.

***

Since 2012, when Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize recreational marijuana, there has been a slow trickle of states that have followed suit. Over that period, Americans’ support for marijuana legalization has risen 20 points to a record-high 68%. This measure has enjoyed majority support from the public since 2013. Additionally, Gallup data from earlier this year find that 70% of U.S. adults now consider smoking marijuana to be morally acceptable, marking a five-percentage-point uptick in one year.

The trajectory of the public’s support for the legalization of marijuana has coincided with an increasing number of states approving it. It is not entirely clear whether the shift in public opinion has caused the change in many state laws or vice versa. Given recent trends, more states are likely to legalize recreational marijuana in the future. Considering the high level of public support for such a measure, a change in federal policy could even occur.

When you shop at Kind Leaf, you are helping out the local Pendleton community, not only by providing jobs and revenue, but also because the local company truly cares, as it gives back to their neighbors with initiatives like the Kind Tree program that helps families in need celebrate the holidays. I’ll certainly be blogging a lot about Kind Tree as it truly warms my heart and demonstrates what the cannabis community is truly about.

These are trying times for everyone, but there are reasons to celebrate and we should take advantage of these moments. And, as best as we can, please be kind to one another.

This week’s specials at Kind Leaf:

  • FLOWER 15% OFF – Satsuma Dream, Cherry Pie Sorbet, Cindy Blue, Koffee Cake
  • FLOWER 30% OFF – Druid
  • EDIBLES 15% OFF – High 5 Elixers, Chalice Blasts
  • EDIBLES 30% OFF – Elbe’s Edibles, Titan’s Kind Chews
  • EXTRACT 15% OFF – Oregrown Nectar Skull Cap, Artifact Extracts (All Varieties)

Belushi Farm’s Captain Jack’s Carts Now at Kind Leaf

Captain Jack is an old-school cannabis cultivating legend. He has inspired comedians at Saturday Night Live, helping Dan Aykroyd provide the world with laughs with famous skits like the Coneheads. If you are in beautiful Pendleton, Oregon, you can find Captain Jack’s cartridges only at Kind Leaf, Eastern Oregon’s premier craft cannabis boutique.

Captain Jack himself had this to say on Instagram: “If you want to travel 🚲✈️⛵️🚗 to Pendleton Oregon you can get an early taste of my historic Gulzar Afghanica!!!”
Fellow cannabis legend Steve DeAngelo replied: “Go now if u can. If I was anywhere close to Kind Leaf in Pendleton I’d be blazing my way there at top velocity. Captain Jack is the real deal and I can’t wait to taste that Gulzar!”

Belushi Farms provides some background on the iconic guerilla grower:

Jack spent the summers of 1971 and ‘72 making trips to a remote village in the Northeast region of Afghanistan, outside of Mazar-i-Sharif, past the Hindu Kush mountain range. There, he slowly endeared himself to the village elders by working alongside them in the fields, growing and harvesting a magical plant called Gulzar Afghanica, or “Garden of Afghanica.”

By the close of the second summer, Jack had gained the respect of the elders and they honored him with a handkerchief full of special seeds, knowing he was spiritually connected to this precious varietal.

Captain Jack quickly set out to grow his own Gulzar Afghanica.

From Mashable:

DAN AYKROYD: Captain Jack brought that original strain from Afghanistan, and it kept you up, you know. You could fly an F-16 on it, or judge a murder trial. It was just beautiful, stimulating Indica that he brought back. Sometimes the hallways would smell, the very pungent smell of it. It was just what we needed to stay at it through 3, 4, 5 in the morning.Captain Jack brought that original strain from Afghanistan, and it kept you up, you know.

JIM BELUSHI: Those hallways were filled with it. That’s why they called it “the smell of SNL.” I mean, where do you think the Coneheads and stuff like that came from?

Come into Eastern Oregon’s premier craft cannabis dispensary and get inspired by the legendary Captain Jack, or from another product from the retailer with the best selection in Oregon.

Snag Empower Oil at Kind Leaf for Your Aches and Pains

I love hiking, kayaking, and camping. My only regret is that I wish that I had taken up the activities earlier in life. Now that I’m into my 40s, I have some serious aches and pains after these activities, not to mention that I do the patented “old man groan” just about every time I stand up and have to make a comment about my trick knee or my lower back pain.

If you are like me, do yourself a favor and pick up some Empower Oil at Kind Leaf before and after your next outdoorsy adventure. Both Kind Leaf and Empower are locally owned businesses and are true Oregon cannabis success stories that should be celebrated by our cannabis community. It takes a lot to survive the over-regulated cannabis industry and compete against big corporations, but these two craft companies have done it.

The Fresh Toast featured Empower’s healing products and gave some insight into its founder and CEO, Trista Okel, who I happened to have the pleasure of meeting about 15 years ago, through Oregon activist circles:

Trista Okel came up with the acronym EMPOWER (End Marijuana Prohibition Organize Women Enact Reform) in 2004 while sitting in a DC jail. She joined a dozen other volunteers from Americans for Safe Access who sat in front of the office of then Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson. They came to the nation’s capital with the names of thousands of doctors who recommended medical cannabis for their patients. Despite this evidence, they were unable to talk with Thompson about why cannabis is still listed as a schedule 1 drug, a classification that means according to the Federal government, cannabis has no medicinal benefit whatsoever.

***

Among the conditions where one can find relief by using this nontoxic herbal pain reliever include inflammation, skin trauma (psoriasis, eczema, acne, age spots), joint pain, menstrual cramps, fibromyalgia, and arthritis. This instructions for using oil are incredible simple. “Put it where it hurts. Rub it in. Repeat.” This oil has a pleasant aroma that helps elevate one’s mood and provides aromatherapy support. Regular application of this oil can alleviate the symptoms caused by these conditions without the side effects and chemical smell found in chemical based sports creams.

Also, Empower Oil works well in helping to heal muscle and joint pain due to an injury, as well as shortening the recovery time post-injury. By applying oil frequently at the beginning, the body absorbs the cannabinoids. So over time, users can reduce their need for cannabis oil, though one cannot use this topical too frequently. As the oil is applied to the skin, it does not enter the blood stream, and as such, those who use cannabis infused topicals will not test positive on a drug test.

I am so proud of Trista and wholeheartedly endorse her products and urge everyone that cares about small businesses to support Empower and Kind Leaf. It is extremely rewarding to be able to support good people doing good business, by picking up Empower products at Eastern Oregon’s premier craft cannabis boutique, you are doing just that.

Oregon Senator Ron Wyden Tours Grön Cannabis Confections

The Oregon cannabis industry has created thousands of jobs and generated millions of dollars for the state, including more than $100 million brought in from tax revenue last year alone. Great progress has been made, but much more still needs to be done, so it was great to see Oregon Senator Ron Wyden tour Grön Cannabis Confections, an Oregon-based company that makes both THC and CBD infused chocolates. (Kind Leaf carries Grön, so come on in and get your holiday season started right.)

From the great reporting over at Marijuana Moment:

The senator has long championed both the marijuana and hemp markets and has continued to advocate for regulations that promote growth in those sectors. For example, prior to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) release of an interim final rule for hemp last week, he and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wrote a letter to the department urging them to expeditiously implement regulations.

When it comes to firms like Grön, “what we have are companies that want to use hemp as a supplement or additive,” Wyden told Portland Business Journal, referring to the need for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to develop regulations for hemp-derived CBD to be used in supplements and food products.

“Mitch McConnell and I have been trying to get the FDA to speed up its timetable. They originally wrote five years or something,” he said. “We need the federal government with respect to the kind of companies that I’ve just been at, to lay out an official policy of enforcement discretion.”

While it is relative, I and other Oregon political activists may quibble a bit in stating that Senator Wyden “has long championed both the marijuana and hemp markets,” he has certainly come around to the right side of history and has become a strong leader for important federal reforms. Wyden has joined his fellow Oregonian in leading the bipartisan effort to allow cannabis businesses access to banking services.

We all need to do our part in helping the cannabis industry succeed, including shopping at local mom and pops. Ensuring that we elect officials that genuinely care about our growing industry and are working to implement important reforms is a crucial element in ensuring that cannabis entrepreneurs, including mom-and-pop shops like Kind Leaf, can survive and thrive in this competitive market.
