If you wish to see recreational sales of Cannabis in Albany dispensaries (not at Gramsterdam) you will want to be at the City Council Meeting on Wednesday September 23, 2015, 7:15 pm.
Four members of the Albany City Council seem to have real heartburn with the matter and have tried to pull a fast one on city residents yet again.
Seems suspect to me ... they force a tax increase on our electric bill, yet when they could be handed hundreds upon thousands of tax dollars paid willingly, they're saying no. If I wasn't so sure it couldn't possibly be, I would think they had a personal interest in keeping sales on the street and tax free.
Making decisions such as these makes one think maybe they have an unidentified condition that needs addressing.
I look forward to seeing you there.
You would think that in the year 2015, presenters would be sharper and would check out the information they are portraying as truth. I am highly disappointed in the Town Hall that was held by Rep. Andy Olson, and you should be too. I am sure Andy didn't prepare the information the police officer presented, but you would think he would ensure they were only putting out truthful information. Wouldn't you?
I am glad that I attended the Town Hall, if nothing else because I think that due to "the rest of us" being there, the tone of the meeting was less "Reefer Madness oriented" than it would have been. The question was asked how many of us have children in school ... the majority of the hands were on the board, not in the audience. It was clear, this was to fuel their fears - it would be so nice if they would open their minds to the truth instead of just perpetuating old information and lies.
Instead of wasting time on a plant that saves lives instead of taking them, wouldn't it be nice if they would spend some time teaching the truth about cigarettes, alcohol, prescription drugs, meth, heroin, GMO foods, weather modification and more?!!
I do hope that you will all be at the City Council Meeting next Wednesday, September 23rd. It is very important that you represent your feelings on the sale of recreational Cannabis in Albany, now and in the future.
Kyle Odegard has written a short article about tonight's Town Hall, you can find it on Facebook on the Albany Democrat Herald website here: http://democratherald.com/news/local/forum-tackles-pot-s-effect-on-youth/article_83f3d7db-0be7-5b48-983c-2be1e42bdff4.html
Below, I have posted a YouTube link to "Reefer Madness" just in case you'd like a refresher. Blessings be!
I've been a bit "out of sorts" for a few days ... the reality of Kendra and Charles moving on in their lives and away from here is before me, and it's not easy. I ask that you forgive me, I haven't been my usual self ... and I ask you for your patience and understanding. Until I get used to my "right hand being gone"... I imagine I'll be busier in the kitchen during the day and Laura and CJ or Hollie will be in the dispensary and Jason at the desk. My goal is to work less overtime, so I'm going to do what I can to get my work done during working hours and see about generating a life outside the business for the first time since we started. It's a thought, but I won't hold my breath!
Harvest time will be here before we know it, what are you planning on having made this year? Talk to your friends and see if they want the same thing made ... perhaps you'll want to combine your strains and save on testing costs. Each batch has to be tested, so if they have the same strain and of equal organic quality, it is something to consider.
See you soon!
So ... Roasted garlic smells lovely ... but I still prefer the *original* Canna Kitchen smell! Since Kendra has handed back the "reins to the range" I've been doing some R&D the last couple of nights. One of many recent trials is "Baked Roasted Garlic". Yes you read that right. This should be yummy.
And then there's Paste.
How many of you have had paste and love it? I'm stickin' with capsules between the two, but if you love it and want it, we can make it. Talk about interesting to eat, and even more interesting to put in a capsule! (Think charm school with "interesting here!")
I made paste in three different mediums with three different starting materials, so we'll see! I infused them all using the same process (sorry, trade secret) and will be trying it one or more other ways before it's all said and done. I have prepped these for testing, I am curious of the strength, so I hope to see Billy on Tuesday. I wish it didn't take a week to get results back!
I recently made a batch of super salve in exclusively Virgin Organic Avocado Oil (VOAO) and another batch in Rice Bran Oil (RBO). How exciting is that? We've used the VOAO in our SuperSalve for a while, but have never had Rice Bran Oil.
I also made a batch of Ogre capsules for sleep in the RBO and look forward to getting results back on them. It will be exciting to see how it extracts compared to the Virgin Organic Coconut Oil. We have been very consistent in our capsules, so it will be easy enough to tell.
OK, I've got to get away from this "Baked Roasted Garlic" (RG)! (Timer dinged just after I typed that!)
I'm Rhea ... I own the place. My beautiful daughter Kendra and I opened Albany's Canna Kitchen & Research, LLC on 11/11/11. She grew up, married, and moved away ... life has continued and we've had to make a number of changes and adjustments to continue. I am very excited to be teaching people how to make life-changing, life-saving Smokeless Cannabis Remedies.
