Have you been searching for that perfect treat to give your mom this year? How about pamper her with a Cannabis Mini Massage with a Licensed Massage Therapist and a free 15 minute consult with our own Smokeless Cannabis Remedies woman, Rhea Graham. Just 15 minutes with Rhea, and one can learn how best to optimize their approach to their Cannabis consumption, whether for medical or recreational uses. Then, let our LMT work her magic with a topical sure to help one relax those aches and pains.
(Disclosure: This is not meant to be a mind altering massage. Keep in mind that massages often make individuals very relaxed. If you choose to have a neck and shoulder massage, plan on a driver to drive you home from your appointment. It is against the law to drive high. Topicals do not give a “high” like smoking or vaping, but any massage can make a person “too relaxed” for staying alert, so please plan accordingly.)

Continuing onward and forward… We have closed Gramsterdam (the dispensary) and are working to get our state license to process at Albany’s Canna Kitchen & Research, LLC.  We are continuing our OMMP clinic so patients are able to get or renew their OMMP card.   Thank you all for your continued support!

Onward and forward, rolling with the changes.  More licenses and fees and changes in our future. The state has found a money tree, or so they think, so Albany’s Canna Kitchen and businesses like ours must have a $4000 annual license just like Gramsterdam does.  Naturally, a price increase is likely.  We are interested in having an organization for patients that is able to receive donations to purchase Smokeless Cannabis Remedies at the dispensary and help with the transfer of those funds and to manage a program of sorts. How do we make that happen?  Also looking to open a Cannabis Hospital … I would love to have a burn ward, cancer ward, drug addiction ward, and more.

If you’re going to dream, dream big.  Remember, Albany’s Canna Kitchen & Research, LLC was but a dream one day!  Blessings be, see you soon.

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 insane 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.

We were supposed to be on the agenda for the June 10th City Council meeting, but I went and asked them today 6/8/15 and they are not currently moving forward on changing the ordinance, so we do not need to be at the City Council meeting after all.  We will keep you updated as we know more, thank you ever so much for your continued support!


OMG It’s a reality! Gramsterdam is now Open for Business!
Remember! When there is snow or ice you will want to call to be sure we are open as scheduled!


Blessings all,

Rhea, Kendra, and Bess

More change!  We’re doing our part to keep change alive.  Oh wait, that’s not it!  

If you have an appointment and it’s snowy or icy … please call first to be sure we’re open.  If you don’t have an appointment, you need to call and make one!  We change the message if we are closed due to weather.  I will also post here and/or on our Facebook page which you will find if you click <— over there where it says “our Facebook page”.  Have you liked our Facebook page yet? You’ll want to so you will get updates.  Please note, appointments are now required, we’re getting busier and we can give you the best service and make you the best remedies if we can better plan our day.  Thank you!

Upcoming Events and Latest Updates

See latest blog HERE.

Update!  The doctor is in! Call now to get qualified and scheduled.  Do you have your diagnosis?  Our fax number is 541-730-4147.  You can also mail them to Rhea at the ACKR Clinic PO Box 1398, Albany, OR  97321-0547.   If you need your records, you can print off this Authorization to Release Medical Information or come see us and pick up a copy.  You can take it to the doctor’s office or bring it to us for faxing.  We actually get best results when we fax it; it’s in the please and thank yous!

If you do not have a medical history built up, you may see the doctor for two visits for a cost of $265.  This allows the doctor to document the visits as required by the state, and sign authorizing your card to issue once you pay the funds to the state.  (Be advised that the State of Oregon charges you between $20 and $400 annually to issue permission to use Cannabis as Medicine).  

Schedule your canna-conversion appointment while you’re at it.  The number (541) 981-2620 is available 24/7 – even if we are not!  Leave a message with the date and time you prefer your appointment to be.  We will call you back and confirm, and we are often able to call with an appointment reminder the day of or before if you like.  This is helpful for both of us.

Equally as important as scheduling appointments is being available for them.  We strive to be available for your scheduled appointment time and hope you will, too.  Suggestion —>  It is best to avoid the intersection of Queen & Pacific.  There is always a train if you are late for an appointment!  Approach from the north, south or the east for better results …
ie Waverly, Hill, or Marion to Queen from the north or east and 34th Avenue from the south.)

We have appreciated your business in the past, and we look forward to serving you in the future.  Thank you for being a positive part of the Smokeless Cannabis Remedy Movement.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

Rhea & Kendra
