Oregon Fires Threaten 10% of Its Population, 20% of Its Cannabis Businesses

Traumatic event after traumatic event continue to pile on all of us in 2020 and the most important thing is for everyone to be as safe and healthy as possible. After looking out for ourselves, we need to do all that we can for our family, friends, and community. As unprecedented wildfires threaten the entire West Coast, please remember safety first, and to help out those in need, starting with those that have lost loved ones, their homes, and their livelihoods.

With over 10% of Oregon’s population living under an evacuation order and unhealthy air flowing throughout the state, this unprecedented fire season has put a strain on virtually all of us. As we look to support one another, let’s remember our entire cannabis community, especially the small-business pioneers that have put themselves on the line for the love of the plant. As an Oregon mom-and-pop, Kind Leaf understands firsthand the difficulties of surviving in this competitive industry in normal times, but when disasters strike, whether it is the COVID crisis, an economic collapse, or environmental catastrophe like wildfires, cannabis businesses that don’t have big corporate backers are hit harder than most. Already paying exorbitant taxes and dealing with burdensome regulations, federal loans and bailouts aren’t available to the cannabis industry.

The Oregonian reported:

Statewide, an estimated 20 percent of state-licensed marijuana businesses – roughly 408 – face some level of evacuation, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission said Wednesday. That includes stores, marijuana processors and producers.

Of those, the agency said 73 marijuana producers, most of them outdoor farms, have been ordered to evacuate.

Many of those operations are in southern Oregon, a region synonymous with outdoor cannabis cultivation. In addition, state officials said a “significant” number of marijuana businesses in Clackamas County are also under threat from fast-moving wildfires.

Kind Leaf prides itself on partnering with businesses doing good work, especially those that are locally-owned. Please remember to be kind to everyone as we large swaths of Southern Oregon and the Willamette Valley fall victim to fire. Most of Oregon’s sungrown is cultivated in these areas and even if the farms survive the fires, the flowering plants can fall victim to smoke and falling ash. Many craft and family farms are saying goodbye to the land they have dedicated their lives to and it is simply heartbreaking. Please remember to support the craft cannabis farms and businesses as they rebuild after this disaster. Kind Leaf will continue to do its part to carry their products and help promote them.

At Kind Leaf, you can order online via Leafly. We have weekly deals and offer OMMP, veteran, and senior citizen discounts. You can also get a discount by utilizing our curbside window.

April 20, 2020 was supposed to be a 4/20 celebration unlike any other as April has actually been 4/20 all month long, but, well, we don’t even have to get into why there aren’t massive in-person celebrations around the globe.

Happy Birthday to Kind Leaf! Thank You for Three Great Years!

March 10 marks three years since the opening of Kind Leaf. What started as a dream and a hope, has evolved into Eastern Oregon’s premier craft cannabis boutique. With Oregon’s biggest and best selection and many products that are exclusive to Kind Leaf in Pendleton, there is no better place for some of the world’s best cannabis flower and products. Additionally, Kind Leaf stays stocked with non-cannabis items, making it a one-stop shop for tourists or those purchasing gifts for friends and family.

When shopping at Kind Leaf, customers know that they are supporting a local, Oregon-owned small business that gives back to the community. Kind Leaf shows that they care by sponsoring local neighborhood events, culminating in the Kind Tree program that benefits families in need of help providing a magical Christmas Day for their children. The cannabis boutique is also at the forefront of protecting the public, from ensuring that consumers are getting accurate information to helping prevent communicable viruses.

The cannabis industry is not for the faint of heart. The rules, regulations, and taxes are very burdensome and the profit margins slim, but if your heart is in the right place and you provide a quality product, you can achieve the American dream. Kind Leaf is a great example for other businesses to follow, as good work and good deeds can equal good business. Happy birthday, Kind Leaf, here’s to many, many more.

Super Bowl Party Plans? Get Your Craft Cannabis at Kind Leaf in Pendleton.

My Kansas City Chiefs are playing the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV (54), and whether you are a sportsball fan or not, there’s a decent chance that you will be attending a Super Bowl party. As cannabis has moved more and more mainstream, people are utilizing cannabis at holiday celebrations, and the Super Bowl has basically been elevated to a national holiday. You don’t have to just take my word for it, the facts speak for themselves as Vail Daily reports:

It’s almost Super Bowl Sunday, a hallmark date in the U.S. for a lot of reasons: TV ratings go through the roof, a big chunk of the population rolls into work on Monday with a hangover and weed sales spike hard the day before.

That’s right, according to a 2018 statistic from Green Bits, which runs sales systems for more than 350 dispensaries in six states, cannabis sales increased by 40% on Super Bowl Eve from 2017 to 2018.

Many consumers prefer getting high to getting drunk during the Super Bowl because they can avoid that dreaded hangover. That being said, here are four edible treats available at Vail Valley dispensaries for game day that represent the two teams vying for the title.

If you are anywhere close to Pendleton, Oregon, Kind Leaf is the craft cannabis boutique to stock up for your Super Bowl party. Kind Leaf is a local, mom-and-pop shop that just happens to have the biggest supply of cannabis strains in the great state of Oregon. When in Pendleton, these top shelf farms can only be found at Kind Leaf: 7 Points Farms, sofresh farms, Yerba Buena, Geek Farms, Fox Hollow Flora, Highland Provisions, Ideal Farms, Pruf Cultivar, Deep Creek Gardens, Flowersmith, Dr. Jolly’s, White Label Farms, and Roots Life Farms. I’ve been to a lot of dispensaries, in a few states, and, trust me, Kind Leaf is a one-of-a-kind experience, worth a road trip.
