What Our Patients are Saying ...
Stop the presses! I recently received my favorite testimonial of all times on a Facebook comment where a patient said, "Thanks to the blessing (your mom) gave the rest of us, you, I am out of pain and exercising right now. ❤❤ I never feel like I can thank you enough! Maybe I should start thanking her, too!
** Thank you so much, my Momma is my everything and I appreciate her so much. It is so nice to see someone else appreciating her as well. Thank you, K!
So happy to hear from a fellow Veteran:
This is my testimonial to what a great place and wonderful staff that work at the Canna Kitchen. I am a veteran with PTSD and I also suffer from bad knees (airborne infantry). Ever since I have came to this clinic it has been nothing but hugs and geniune concern that the patient gets the proper medication. Well, after consulting with staff, we decided suppositories are the way to go. I would like to state, I am 38 years old and the thought of a suppository was not tops on my list, however, after swallowing my pride, I took the suppository. Needless to say, the best decision ever. My life is getting better because of what these people do, truly working miracles with a medicinal approach. The point to my story is, keep an open mind if you truly want to improve your health and well-being. Let the mental and physical healing begin. Thank you Rhea and staff.
I just received this from a patient who is getting off Methadone:
Thanks so much for all my stuff. The canna caps worked wonders. It didn't take a handful like I thought it might. Took 2 of each for a total of 6 I slept so well. 7 hours straight. I'm very happy. I haven't had a good night of sleep in so long, it was like a gift from heaven. So thank you my angels at ACKR, I'm so grateful. I feel great and without the aid of narcotics. This is so nice. I hope it keeps up. Not easy going off the bad medicine. I'm simply beside myself today. Another good thing about using the miracle called Marijuana. I'm telling everyone!
Brian W., Albany
Update: Brian is totally off the Methadone and couldn't be happier!

I am commenting to share input on the shampoo. I first tried it to help me clear up my scalp. I suffer from eczema & psoriasis of the scalp. For years I always had scales/sores on my scalp.... Sometimes not so bad and at times, when weather is cold and wet, horribly bad, flaming outbreaks. My first time of using the Marijuana Shampoo, I wasn't too fond of the way my hair felt while shampooing but LOVED the results! I had a scalp free & clear of all sores, after just 2 weeks of usage! A little experimenting I found that it works best, and feels better, when I mix the nickel size drop of shampoo with water, in an old empty shampoo bottle, shake it up and use on my dry hair, lather & rinse. I will keep shampoo handy for those those outbreaks from now on. Hope this helps others as well as it does me. Take Care everyone! :-) HB
Rhea, I cant express my gratitude enough for what you do and how devoted you are to us patients!! The suppositories for pain and sleep have changed my life and I have never felt better. We are truly blessed to have you on our side. I hope you have a wonderful day! I know I will after sleeping like baby ALL night long. Thank you again so much and God bless you. KC
I wanted to pass on to others,who may be struggling to try your suppositories. I, too, was a bit leary on trying these. I am a 60 year old man with 5 blown out disks in my back, arthritis throughout my body and over all. I have had a total of 29 surgeries. I have tried several of your capsules with good results. I prefer to get pain relief without getting high. I tried your low dose suppositories with good results in relieving my pain and not getting high. I resently tried your higher doseage suppositories due to a higher amount of pain throughout my body. WOW, these worked very well. I got great pain relief with in about 20 to 30 minutes without getting high as well I got 4 hours of some quality sleep. I would highly recommend people with a lot of pain to at least give these a try. I know I was no fan of the idea of using a suppository. I am now a strong supporter of these. The relief I receive without getting the THC high is amazing. I thank you for working with me on your various capsules to find the ones that work best for me. You and Laura have been a tremendous help and have helped me reduce my narcotic needs in half and I am weaning myself off of these (thank goodness as I know how addicting they are and how bad they are for the body). Also on a side note, after getting the recent crud that was going around, Laura helped me figure out some capsules you make and a tincture to use that drastically reduced the symptoms. Thanks for spending the time and all your help, support, sharing your knowledge and advice. You and your knowledgeable staff are a real help and pleasure to work with. Peace, Love and Hugs Larry
What amazing pain relief I experienced from ACKRs' Ogre suppositories! I had gone to the emergency room for severe abdominal pain and found out that I had ovarian cysts. They had given me prescription medication, but it wasn't quite helping, and I had to wait to hear back from my doctor to find out what type of ovarian cyst they are. So, I decided to try a suppository vaginally. Very impressive! The pain soon dissipated , and I was able to fall asleep very comfortably. I highly recommend any woman with female reproductive issues to try this medicine delivery method. I found this a to be a definite pain relief remedy for my own symptoms. Thank you so much for all that you do!
Love you all,
From a Facebook post to me:
I love it when all I have to do is put a spoonful of your tincture in my coffee! Sitting here doing morning stuff and suddenly feel my whole spine crack and relieve pressure.
I love, love, love the suppositories!! With Hep C, I love that the medicine in the suppository goes directly to my liver to keep it as healthy as possible, and heal my liver. The "medical tests" show that my fibrosis has not progressed in 4 years. I've used milk thistle all along, and cannabis for the last 2 years. Also, with as bad of a case of auto-immune arthritis that i have... if I vaped or took enough capsules to stop the pain, I'd get nauseous. I love the pain relief of the supps, and the fact that I don't get sick, or "stoned". Thank you Miss Rhea for opening my eyes and taking the time to teach me a "different", much BETTER way to take care of my body!
Dear Canna Kitchen,
I would like to thank you sincerely for one product in particular—your suppositories. Suppositories from your Kitchen are the only thing to really touch my severe neck and back pain. They are real medicine! Often I suggest to patients they try a few. Most of the time, I get weird looks, and they continue with a flower purchase. Well, I can say from experience, those folks are the difference between “patients” and “Patients.” For pain control, there is nothing better than a suppository, and if you’re in pain—real pain—using one shouldn’t be an issue. I’ve tried other suppos from other folks, and they don’t really do the job that the ones from Canna Kitchen do. You have a wonderful product, wonderful employees, and a wonderful business model. I would strongly encourage all real patients to try a suppository! They’re great.
Usually I’ll insert one and get comfy for about 20 minutes until it starts to work. When it hits, I don’t really notice the pain relief when it happens—I just kind of notice it when it comes back, after the suppository has worked its course. Kinda a, “Oh, wait…wasn’t I supposed to be in pain?” sort of deal. I’ve never experienced “couch lock” through edibles, smoking or vaping, but I sure do with the suppository. Back when I smoked cigarettes, I didn’t even want to get up to go do that, which is saying a lot! Anyway, it’s a very total body high, very relaxing, and very pain-relieving. I wouldn’t say I get “party high” from suppositories, but that doesn’t really matter. What I get is pain relief—and that’s why the folks at Canna Kitchen can truly call their product Medicine.
While everyone who has tried the shampoo has said it, today I received it in writing... this shampoo is thoroughly loved! This patient lost her hair due to medical treatment several years ago. She writes:
Hello Beautiful Lady and dearest friend. Hope you are well. I miss you so much! I would love to just talk and visit with you. By the way, your shampoo is wonderful!! I have been using it for the past few weeks and have seen such happy results. My entire head is now almost completely covered (with hair). Thank you, my friend, and I love you.
(Make my day Miss C !!!)
Everybody should have a Jeanne in their life!
Ok here we go! After being hooked on morphine for WAY too many years and not one to take on weed, I met this wonderful silly gal over to Albany's Canna Kitchen. We talked a while to try and figure out what was really going to work for me, Miss Stubborn !!
Rhea introduced me to her way of life.
Lemme tell ya what. She knows her business and she cares about us folks that need her so much... No, all my problems are not level yet, but, that's my fault for not keeping up with the pills. THEY WORK. My sleep... Oh man. The leg jumps have slowed with the wonderful salve.
I have a long way to go. I been fighting this old wore out, beat up body for 65 years. Rhea is going to make sure I get better !!!
Thank you, Sweet Lady!
So far I'm doing really well on it [Sativa Fibro capsules]. It hasn't made me anxious and I can REALLY tell the difference in what aches less - mainly my left shoulder and upper arm. I am going to take a TLS now, 2 hours after the noontime Fibro Sativa as my hip is doing it's thing.
Took a little of the new tincture last night at bedtime to help to relax to go to sleep. It works miracles!!
Just wanted to give you an update and thank you again wonderful lady for all of your personalized help. I think that's what people don't "get" about just going to any dispensary or buying on the street or whatever. When you don't know anything, like James and me, having a Rhea and a Kendra is invaluable.
"Shock and Awe!"
I am 78 years old, and your Smokeless Cannabis Remedies are the only "medicine" I take. Not too long ago I had cataract surgery. The next day when I returned for my follow-up, the doctor seemed to be totally amazed when he told me, "there is virtually no swelling!" I told him, "I use Cannabis". I'm not sure which amazed him more, the fact that I use Smokeless Cannabis Remedies, or that there was no swelling. Although the Ophthalmologists have heard that Cannabis is fantastic for eye health, they don't seem to want to believe it. I would hope that more patients will be honest with their doctors and tell them they are using Cannabis so they will know the truth of why "there is no swelling" and whatnot.
This past Spring, my primary physician was concerned about my blood pressure. I increased my dosage of capsules to three a day and my blood pressure regulated itself perfectly, right to where she wanted it: 140/60. She asked what I had done and I told her. She, too, was amazed. She is happy to sign my card seeing how healthy I am, and pain-free when using the capsules.
Thank you for what you do!
I have fibromyalgia, neuropathy, restless legs, and ibs. I had been taking opiates 3 times a day for 5 years. I had both day and night time pills made for me at the Canna Kitchen. I started having a big problem with nausea and was run through every test to see if I had ulcers, etc. It was suggested that I was allergic to the marijuana. So, I quit taking the pills for 3 weeks and saw no improvement in the nausea. I talked to my doctor and we discussed the possibility of the morphine being the culprit. I thought, why not quit using it and see what happens. It took several months to wean off the morphine safely but I am now "opiate free". Oh yes - no nausea. The pills relieve the pain as good as, if not better, than the morphine. It relieves my restless legs and neuropathy and for the first time in years (taking sleeping pills every night that I also quit taking) I sleep peacefully through the night. I can't express how happy I am to be off most of the prescription drugs and still get the same level of pain relief. I no longer worry about my liver and kidneys being damaged. I no longer have any of the side effects that I had from the rx. I use the night time ones during the day occasionally for break through pain and it helps better than the break through medication I was taking before. Thank you Rhea and Kendra for giving us a safe, clean, friendly place to get smokeless marijuana made. It is wonderful to have ladies who truly care and have educated themselves about healing with marijuana to speak out for all of us who don't or can't and to make product for those of us who don't or can't. I encourage anyone living with chronic pain to seriously consider trying it. Just give it two hours one time and you will wish you had tried it long ago. I take my pills on a schedule so I don't have to play catch up but if I get behind I just vap and get instant relief that lasts until the pills work again. All that relief with no chemicals. Go figure!
As a retired police officer I was skeptical about using medical marijuana; but I was undergoing chemotherapy to treat cancer and the side effects were terrible. After some prodding from my wife I decided to try the medical marijuana. Within a short time the capsules alleviated the majority of my symptoms. I was no longer nauseous, dizzy, aching in the bones, or coughing. I was able to stop using a cane to go to the store.
One of the best things was that I was able to eliminate my other medications, such as codeine, that were disrupting my system and are known to be very hard on the liver. My wife and I both felt very good about me using something natural and effective.
Rhea and Kendra, at the Canna Kitchen, made the whole process easy and non-threatening. They believe in what they do and are not out to take your last dime.
“An alternative usage of cannabis ointment. I am a practitioner of Qi Qong for many years. I found by applying the salve to key chakra points prior to practicing Qi Qong I was able to breathe in the medication through these energy points. A very relaxing and energizing process began to occur when I practiced Qi Qong in this manner. I would highly suggest Qi Qong training to help eliminate pain with daily practice. One such exercise, Lei Chi, can help bring healing energy into the body and then help remove toxic energy that is stuck. This moving of energy is very profound for me. I find it helps relieve mental anxiety from long term chronic pain. This usage of healing salves along with Kung Fu training is nothing new. My close friend and master of Chung Mu Do Kung Fu system came all the way out from Pennsylvania to train me in the use of traditional Chinese ointments along with Qi Qong practice.
I realized I could do the same using Rhea's salves and tinctures. The results are very promising.

I had facial laser resurfacing because of skin cancer, and used the burn oil from Albany's Canna Kitchen to up in the healing process. I can honestly say that the oil helped with the pain and speeded up the healing process. Today, my face looks clear, smooth, and scar free. I recently also, had the opportunity to treat a burn caused by boiling water, and again, was happy with the results. Donna
Hello there! I had the "Kendra-Jane" candies. It delivered great lasting pain relief. This is like a Bit-0-Honey candy with a pleasant surprise at the end. All organic product with a purpose that is enjoyable. I recommend you start with just 1/4 bar, and use no more than a 1/2 bar in a 6 hour period. Thank you!
Wife says yes. We, for the sake of science, gave it a try and all I can say is thanks!
Thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of the m-Scale study. I met with Troy yesterday and I am very excited to be a part of his project. I agree with him that we need more data from patients
to get a real view on the efficacy of this medicine and why we have
chosen it over other medications. That kind of data is much more
compelling to legislators than a bunch of stoners protesting in front
of a courthouse. I am very happy there is someone doing this work and
especially someone with as much integrity as Troy. Thanks for finding
him and letting us in on his project.
My name is Whitney, I'm 28 years old and live in Eugene, Oregon. Since the age of 15 I have been diagnosed with chronic migraines. All the doctors that I have seen, and all the tests I went through to try to fix my head... I was given all types of medication to try out, from anti-depressants to pain pills and muscle relaxers. High milligrams of ibuprofen, Tylenol or Aleve, to blood pressure medicine and blood thinners.
By the time I was 23, I started researching alternative methods to get out from under all pills that doctors had prescribed me. Most of my research brought me to herbalism, which then led me to Medical Cannabis, and how to get my card. After achieving my goal, I fell in love with Albany's Canna Kitchen & Research, LLC. There are two ladies there that make the environment really great. They help you go through and understand the process, so you can get the best results from your product.
The first time I tried their products I burst into tears. Within minutes the pressure and sensitivity to light had faded, and for the fist time in a long time I felt normal.
I would like to take this time to say, "thank you" to the ladies at Albany's Canna Kitchen & Research, LLC, for their help and hard work to bring people like myself back to feeling human again. In my opinion, we need to support the ones who decide to go an alternative route for their health and well being. We also need to support the ones that stick their necks out to educate others about this alternative method. I would like to thank you for reading my story.

I was delighted to find Albany’s Canna Kitchen & Research, LLC. Rhea is most eager to assist and provides excellent information and help concerning finding solutions for pain management. I've had chronic pain for over 33 years due to an industrial accident sustained when I was 18 years of age. I've been through many doctor's offices and alternative therapies over the years in an attempt to find relief and ideally healing to my compound head, neck and back injuries. Until 1 year ago I used traditional pain meds with varied amount of relief and a lot of side effects. Surgeons had little hope to offer the multiple neck and back injuries.
My doctor at the time suggested I try hemp for pain management. Like many who are mainly conservative I was not willing to go that route. 3 years ago the pain began to be intolerable and I decided to begin the process of obtaining an OMMP card. Many of the doctors in Corvallis agreed that hemp may offer a system for pain management but would not agree to help me. My present primary doctor agreed to give me a letter indicating I was a candidate for this kind of pain management. After obtaining the clearance to apply for OMMP card I followed through and now have the legal right to use hemp for severe pain management.
I do not like to smoke so I decided to try ointments and tinctures along with vaporizing to titrate the cannabis. The tinctures were effective but some of the oils infused with cannabis were not well received by my stomach. I found coconut oil infused ointments and honey tinctures work very well for pain and no problem for my stomach. Vaporizing is sometimes irritating to my lungs but does a very good job of getting the canibinoids into my system. I found I am more active and have less pain. Still at times the pain is very bad.
I'm thankful though that with the help of Rhea I was able to try solutions that worked better than pharmaceutical medications with a lot less side effects. I would highly recommend anyone who is seeking help who has an OMMP card to contact Albany’s Canna Kitchen & Research, LLC.

Nice things people have written:
Hope you are doing wonderfully dear lady. I have learned more about health from you in the time I've known you than I ever learned in all the years of going to doctors. Not much of a compliment, but I hope you understand how deeply I mean it.
I feel AWFUL that I didn't come sooner, to more meetings (at City Hall). I had NO idea. You are truly an inspiration for fighting for what you believe in and I admire you greatly for that and many other wonderful attributes of your being.
Hi Rhea, I am so happy for you!!!! And all of us too. K
BIG Congratulations Rhea & Kendra. Big victory and from what I can tell you did most of the heavy work.
Rhea and Kendra,
Congratulations on your successful fight with City Hall. We are very pleased that you will remain in business.
As before, if you need anything, let us know.
Congratulations! All of your Extremely Hard Work has paid off. We are so proud of you and yours, and we are delighted and relieved that you can continue the good work.
Thank you for all the efforts to support the patients. It is much appreciated.
and lots and lots of phone calls and visits! Thank you so much everyone.
Excellent, gentle, effective pain relief. I use mostly daytime capsules. I have lumbar osteoarthritis and have quit opiates and soma (while using these capsules).
I was having a migraine headache and
I could feel that the muscles in my neck and back were very tight. The pain of the headache was causing me to tense my muscles which was
making my headache worse. Luckily I had some of your canna oil capsules, so I took two and an hour later my back and my neck started relaxing
and the pain from my headache was much more tolerable. I’m so glad I had those available! Thank you Rhea!!!
