It’s Springtime…

And Terpenes Are In the Air!

Aloha friends! Long time no blog.  We apologize for the unexpected lack of a post last week.  Fortunately, I can assure you we put that energy into upgrades and preparations as we ramp up for the first Alaska summer with legal cannabis!  As spring time fast approaches in Fairbanks you can always feel the resulting spring in the people’s step.  That spring is approximately 50% relief that the 6 months of cold and darkness is finally over and 50% anticipation of the amazing summers we are blessed with every year as residents of Alaska.  I feel like there is an extra boost of eagerness this year and spring hasn’t even really started yet.  My guess is that it has something to do with a new industry that generates an easily measurable degree of interest and excitement (and tax dollars to help our city and state). Summer will ignite that industry with a dab torch!  We will start to see the full potential of what legal cannabis has to offer and the positive effects it can have on so many different levels such as generating tax revenue for our City and State and driving tourism to boost the local economy.  From the recreational perspective, we will start to see higher quality bud and new types of products in the retail shops such as ours.  There will be more events such as the Cannabis Classic (we’ll get to this early next week right here on the PakaBlog) that support the growth of the industry.  C’mon summer hurry it up already!

Oh and speaking of new products, we got more than one of those up our sleeve that you could possibly be seeing very soon.  We have been putting in a lot of thought into bringing you marijuana in new and unique ways that provide convenience, sharability, value or even a little bit of lavishness in some upcoming products.  We want to present these products in cool new ways that will continue to push forward our goal of normalizing cannabis in our community to be treated as an adult choice to be made for a variety of reasons.  You should be hearing more about these products next week.  Here’s a little sneak peak at one of them…. 😉

Onto an exciting update from Pakalolo cultivation! The hard work and extra effort that our team puts into combining feeding techniques found in Korean Natural Farming (KNF) with no-till farming is really starting to pay huge dividends in the form of quality in our cannabis. It just keeps getting better and better! This can be shown by our amazing high terpene results found from our latest harvest of Alaskan Blueberry. Let’s take a little closer look at terpenes…

Terpenes, created by the same glands in marijuana that make THC and CBD, are fragrant oils that give different strains their individual smell and flavor. Terpenes give strains like Blueberry the blueberry smell and taste and Sour Diesel its pungent gasoline like funk. Terpenes are also what makes natural essential oils such as lavender and eucalyptus their smells that can be diffused to fill a room. More recent, and much more interesting studies are starting to show the effect the terpenes have on your mood and how you actually feel as they interact with cannabinoids and your brain chemistry. HERB.com does a great job of explaining it:

“Terpenes interact with the endocannabinoid system in a similar way to cannabinoids. When inhaled or ingested, the terpenes act as an assistant to cannabinoids as they work to penetrate the blood-brain barrier. Myrcene, for example, is known to increase cell permeability allowing for faster absorption of THC and other cannabinoids.

Terpenes can also influence neurotransmitters in the brain. For example they can affect dopamine and serotonin production and destruction. This insight gives us an idea of why different strains not only smell and taste different, but also have different affects on our mood or high sensation. Limonene, another common terpene found in cannabis, can increase serotonin production thus elevating your mood.”

Terpenes are highest in marijuana that is grown more naturally such as in soil with naturally occurring nutrients and giving the plants the ability to take in exactly what it wants and needs to grow healthy and create the highest quality final product. Our plants live in the same bed their entire life consuming nutrients through fermented fruit and vegetable juices and oriental herbal nutrients (OHN) that we make right here from items found in a quick grocery store trip to the organic section. What we are trying to do is create a grow medium for our plants that is basically a small ecosystem chalk full of organic food for the plants. Using these amazing natural grow methods our Alaskan Blueberry has some of the highest terpenes in the state! The AK Blueberry from this harvest is just covered in frost (trichomes full of THC, CBD and terpenes) and has a deliciously sweet and pungent smell with notes of sour and taste similar to a handful of half big sweet/half small tart blueberries. The delicious smell is made up of different terpenes. Below is an image of the flower and its terpene profile:

I know, I know you are probably asking yourself, “What the heck does this mean?” Well let us, or Leafly I should say, give you a hand with figuring some of that out. The terpene that has the highest percentage in our AK Blueberry is Myrcene so well start with that.  The following is taken from a Leafly article describing the proven effects that naturally occurring terpenes have:

“Myrcene:

Smell: Musky, cloves, earthy, herbal with notes of citrus and tropical fruit.
Effects: Relaxation, comfort
Associated effects in body: Antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic; good for muscle tension, pain, insomnia, depression.
Also Found In: Mango, lemongrass, thyme, hops.

Linalool:

Smell: Floral, citrus, candy, sweet
Effects: Anxiety relief, sedative qualities
Associated effects in body: Anti-anxiety, anti-convulsant, anti-depressant, acne treatment
Also Found In: Lavender

Limonene:

Smell: Citrus
Effects: Elevated mood and stress relief
Associated effects in body: Anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, heartburn, depression
Also Found In: Fruit rinds, rosemary, juniper, peppermint”

Isn’t it simply amazing what cannabis, a little natural growing plant in this endless universe, has to offer us?!  On top of the benefits of terpenes, it is extremely cool just to have access to this information when purchasing a specific strain. You will know exactly what to expect based on some scientific data based off the compounds as well as your nose and your taste buds. The way that terpenes are smelled, tasted and interpreted in cannabis is the exact same as a  wine connoisseur determining quality, depth of flavor, region, and vintage of the wine they are tasting and smelling. This is what we mean when we say our goal is normalizing the marijuana industry. We want you to be as educated as possible and feel like a master cannabis connoisseur when coming to purchase the finest at Pakalolo Supply Company. Going forward we will begin to test the the terpene profiles of our “Pakalolo Grown” strains, so that when you go home to kick-back, relax and smoke you will have a good idea of how the marijuana can effect your brain chemistry and in turn, your mood and how you feel. Our favorite thing about the terpenes is definitely that those itty bitty little natural compounds make the buds smell and taste so000 ono! (delicious)

That’s all we got for you PakaBloggers today. We are working on adding a section to our website to include recent terpene profiles of our strains when the rest of the results come back from testing soon. Next week we will have some new product reveals that we are anxious to share with you. We will also be discussing the Cannabis Classic and how to nominate/vote on your favorite cannabis retail related awards so check back soon. We hope you made it into Pakalolo this weekend to get your hands on some of the latest “Pakalolo Grown” harvest while it lasts. See you next time, mahalo!

Bonus Blog for Brand New Buds

Aloha Fairbanks! We are back for the second day in a row with another amazing dose of incoming product news.  We are more than pleased to announce another exciting collaboration with a Fairbanks cultivation company, :Alaska Cannabis Cultivators.  Branden Roybal, a local hard-working carpenter who own and runs ACC, has a goal to support the local Fairbanks market exclusively. We are very grateful for Roybal’s decision to keep it local and help our city become the cannabis capital of Alaska.  We believe his contribution to Fairbanks’ market, in addition to upcoming harvests (getting cut down as we speak) from our own cultivation and Einstein Labs’ concentrates, will provide the consistent flow of marijuana product in our retail store that will allow us begin expanding back to our original hours while maintaining a varied selection with a healthy back stock.

Mr. Roybal had previous experience growing marijuana as a hobby, so let us be the first to vouch for his product by saying that his hobby has definitely paid off!  His flower is grown using a soil-less medium and hydroponics style watering system.  We received our first batch of Alaska Cannabis Cultivators’ high quality product last night and have it on our shelves today. He unloaded two different strains on us of some very pretty, hand trimmed bud, completely covered in trichomes.

The first of those two strains is Snow White coming in at 24.23% THC and 0.06% CBD. The description from Leafly is as follows:

“Snow White is a 65/35 indica/sativa hybrid. Early and abundant resin production is attributed to her White Widow mother.  Flowering finishes in a standard 60 to 70 days from start and provides a nice balanced and steady high.”

fullsizerender-25

The other strain is Afgooey is hitting at 21.62% THC and 0.06% CBD.  Leafly’s description:

“A potent indica strain that is believed to descend from an Afghani indica and Maui Haze. Its sativa parent may lend Afgoo some uplifting, creative qualities, but this strain undoubtedly takes after its indica parent as it primarily delivers relaxing, sleepy effects alongside its earthy pine flavor.”

fullsizerender-24

That’s it for this week PakaBloggers but expect this type of product news to become more and more regular as the industry continues to grow.  Hope to see you today or tomorrow to try out Alaska Cannabis Cultivators’ beautiful buds or Einstein Labs’ potent concentrates. Check out our full menu on http://www.PakaloloSupplyCo.com and don’t forget to check back on the PakaBlog next week.  Mahalo!

It’s Time To Concentrate

Howzit Fairbanks?  We have got a fun update for you this time around. Tomorrow we will have some new products on our shelves thanks to Einstein Labs down in Anchorage.  In doing so will mark the first time a retail store in Fairbanks will have legal cannabis concentrates for sale.  Many of you have been patiently waiting for this moment (as have we) and we are very happy to be able to tell you that there is only 1 more day until that moment finally arrives… Huzzah!

Cannabis concentrates is a wide-ranging term that refers to a number of different products: hash, oil, wax, shatter, etc.  However, all concentrates are manufactured similarly by stripping the cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, off the plant through the use of solvents such as CO2, butane and ethanol (even ice water can be used in the extraction process of making hash).  Afterwards the solvents are purged from the product through the use of heat, pressure and evaporation leaving you with a product of various different consistencies of concentrated cannabinoids (THC and CBD).  Oh and don’t worry, being that all marijuana product in Alaska is tested, any concentrates are guaranteed to be purged of any solvents to a safe level for consumption.

Over the last ten years concentrates have quickly grown to being one of the most common ways to indulge in cannabinoids for many reasons. First, there are implied health advantages when it comes to concentrates. They are easily heated to the temperature that they vaporizes at (284 degrees farenheit) so that it can be inhaled to get the desired effect. Vaporizing is comparable to water evaporating.  No combustion (burning) is taking place, which means you’ll be inhaling vapor instead of smoke which is often smoother, more efficient and even tastier than traditional smoke. Another advantage is that they do not leave a lasting odor as smoke does. Therefore people like them for their home because they can vaporize all day without leaving that ganja smell for those of you who wish to remain stealthy. 🙂  Concentrates also have a level of convenience that people enjoy. By having a vape pen loaded with concentrates you have everything you need.  You can simply pull it our of your pocket, take a pull and you are good to go versus carrying around some marijuana, a pipe and a lighter where you must load, light, cash and repeat each time you want to smoke. Due to the ease and quickness of use people love them for outdoor activities, such as hiking or snowboarding, when loading up a pipe and trying to keep a lighter lit just isn’t a viable option. Those who desire only CBD appreciate concentrates as well because they can purchase concentrates that isolate the CBD so there are no psychoactive effects from THC. We don’t have CBD concentrates at the moment but they will inevitably make their way into our store sometime in the near future. Concentrates are now being widely used for cooking/baking edibles too. Using a concentrate with a high THC percentage makes dosing much simpler as can be read about here. Annnnd the list goes on but I’m sure you understand why cannabis concentrates have become so popular so I’ll stop blabbing in excitement… Let’s get to revealing those new products!

20170302_145939-e1488500048226.jpg

We are very delighted to be working with Justin Roland and the rest of the Einstein Labs team down in Anchorage, AK.  We were able to go visit their facility last month and we were blown away by the way they are building their business.  To put it simply, they are doing it right!  We all knew right away we could make big things happen by putting our heads together. So we did, and the first of those big things is providing concentrates to the people of Fairbanks. Mr. Roland is personally, and graciously, traveling to Fairbanks this week with some of their awesome products. On Friday we will have a limited amount of shatter.  Shatter is Butane Hash Oil (BHO) that acts similar to a sheet of brittle glass in its stable form.  It is easily broken, or shattered, at cooler temperatures into smaller pieces for smoking, whether to take a dab or load into a vaporizer.

Fun Fact: The word dab is sort of dynamic as it can be used in multiple ways.  People use it to refer to concentrates in general or a specific amount of concentrates. However,  earlier I was referring to a specific process of consuming concentrates.  “Taking a dab,” involves touching a predetermined amount of concentrates to a surface that is heated enough to vaporize it instantly in its entirety so that it may be inhaled (one dab’ll do ya)

20170302_150150

Einstein Labs will also be bringing E * Blunt pre-loaded vaporizer pens (www.eblunt.com) filled with their own 47% THC cannabis concentrate oil.  E * Blunt, also an Alaskan company, manufactures vaporizer pens that are infused with flavors made from natural terpenes. We have Tropical Punch and Mango flavored Slims as can be seen below.   We know these products are going to be a great addition to our store and we are eager to see how everyone responds to them. But be on the lookout! further down the line Einstein Labs will be providing us with edibles to sell in our store as well.  The first of which will be something called Leaf Chews.  Leaf Chews are similar to Starbursts and are infused with CO2 hash oil!  Those should be in store in the next few weeks. We will keep you updated as that time comes closer.

Thanks for hangin’at the PakaBlog friends! We will be open Friday 3pm to 8pm and Saturday noon to 6, as usual. Check out www.PakaloloSupplyCo.com to see our full menu and location, and don’t forget to check back on the PakaBlog for updates.  See you all this weekend. Mahalo!

Incoming Update

Aloha! We hope that you are enjoying your weekend and enhancing it with some Pakalolo Pua Mana (Marijuana Flower Power). Perhaps relaxing after a long week of work or getting out in warming weather as we creep closer to spring. We have a tad bit of news on what is incoming to Pakalolo Supply Company. Some of this news relates to a certain type of product that many of you have been patiently waiting for…. BUT we will get to that in just a minute but first we want to give you an update on the seeds our new signature Hawaiian strains that we started last week. Those precious, rare seeds of Maui Mango Diesel and the Caramel Kona Coffee Kush are now the upgraded status of…. SEEDLINGS! While that may seem like minor news it is very reassuring that the seeds are showing signs of the beginning of a healthy plant life.  It is especially exciting because these are two new strains that were just recently bred.  Just to emphasize that, it did not exist a year ago.  When you walk out of our store with a gold poptop containing one of these strains, you will know that you are among the first people in the world, besides a select group of Hawaiians, to experience the Maui Mango Diesel and the Caramel Kona Coffee Kush! I personally think that’s pretty darn cool.  Can’t wait to pop a few of those gold poptops and be transported to the tropical islands myself.  Everyone could use a vacation!

20170218_152805
Think of all the.. POTENTIAL!

In other news, the addition of clones to our retail selection has been quite the hit.  People of all levels of experience, from first timers to veterans, are walking out with a baby plant in hand (that we have packaged securely of course).  It is really fun to speak with those who have never grown marijuana about possibly purchasing clones. You see the wheels in their head start to turn, realizing the potential of that baby plant as they begin working out how they can manage to grow some weed at their house.  I’ll give you a hint if you are asking yourself that question right now… Consistency is the key.  As long as you can be consistent with watering, feeding, etc. then you can be successful.  Of course there is some research that needs to be done as well but that’s what the internet is for!  If you are curious please come in and ask any questions you might have because we are more than happy to discuss it with you as well. We currently have Northern Lights and Green Crack clones on the shelf ready to be adopted so come say hello.

We know a lot of people have been anxious for shops to start offering concentrates. For those of you that don’t know, concentrates are pure forms of extracted THC/CBD stripped from the plant matter using various methods.  We are very excited to announce upcoming products coming from our friends at Einstein Labs in Anchorage.  These guys are the real deal, so expect some awesome things from them found here on the shelves at Pakalolo Supply Company very soon. First up in their lineup of products will be concentrate vape pens and shatter!! Allllllright! 🙂 They are in the process of getting everything extracted, tested and packaged for retail as we speak. We will keep you updated over the next couple weeks….

We have another flower room closing in on harvest containing returning favorites such as Mauna Kea WFOG, Northern Lights and the newest on the team, AK Blueberry! Should be about 2-3 weeks out with harvest, drying and testing.  Until then we have plenty to go around and we are open every Friday and Saturday.  You can view our full menu at http://www.PakaloloSupplyCo.com.  Hope to see you soon at Pakalolo Supply Company and we’ll talk on the PakaBlog next weekend. Mahalo!

The Strains They Are A-Changin’

Aloha Fairbanks! We are long overdue on giving you an update on how things are rolling down at Pakalolo Supply Company.  We are happy to say the ball could not be rolling more smoothly with our new hours.  While they provide consistency to the customers knowing we will have product for their purchasing pleasure every weekend, they also allow us to work on projects behind the scenes that make showtime as enjoyable as possible every Friday and Saturday.  We are focused on improving each area of our operation which allows the business as a whole to work like a well oiled machine (so cliche bro). We have news to bring you from each of those areas today that will get you excited about what’s just on the horizon, or has already arrived… Let’s dab right in!

What Is On the Horizon

In addition to the sun, which is creeping higher above the horizon as we inch closer to summer solstice, we have began brand new genetics in our cultivation.  I must emphasize the word ‘began’ as we have just germinated the seeds.  So maybe it’s a little farther than the horizon, but I must also emphasize the ‘brand new’ part because these are strains from our ‘ohana (family) in Hawaii, the Pua Mana Pakalolo  seed bank, that will soon be apart of our signature strain series (yep, the gold poptop).  Similar to Mauna Kea White Fire OG, these new genetics have never been cultivated at the industrial level until they entered our possession. In fact they have only been grown by our braddas from Pua Mana  because they just bred the genetics relatively recently.  We have started both Maui Mango Diesel and Caramel Kona Coffee Kush.  Besides having the coolest strain names ever, we have heard only admiration about the quality, look, smell and taste.

The Caramel Kona Coffee Kush is a cross between Caramel Kush and a Hawaii born strain, Kona Gold.  The description from Leafly follows:

“Kona Gold is a sativa strain that has traveled far from its native origin, the volcanic soils of Hawaii’s Big Island. Soaring cerebral-focused euphoria captures the mind while leaving the body light and functional, making this sativa a perfect pair with or replacement for your morning cup of coffee. A tropical medley of pineapple and citrus flavors are cut by a sharp sour aroma that could almost be compared to diesel fuel”

Maui Mango Diesel is a cross between Brooklyn Mango:

“Brooklyn Mango, bred by Dr. Underground, is a hybrid that combines Ed Rosenthal Super Bud with NYC Diesel. The resulting buds carry a mix of diesel and tropical fruit flavors, like pineapple, mango, and lemon. The effects of Brooklyn Mango are a mix of cerebral energy with calm and comforting body relaxation.”

and Maui Wowie:

“Maui Wowie (not Maui Waui) is a classic sativa whose tropical flavors and stress-relieving qualities will float you straight to the shores of Hawaii where this strain was originally born and raised. Since its beginnings in the island’s volcanic soil, Maui Wowie has spread across the world to bless us with its sweet pineapple flavors and high-energy euphoria. Lightweight sativa effects allow your mind to drift away to creative escapes, while Maui Wowie’s motivating, active effects may be all you need to get outside and enjoy the sun”

We are proud to add these signature, unique strains to our cultivation so that we can soon share it with the people of Alaska.  Alaska and Hawaii have always had a strong connection being the outlying states who’s cultures vary to a large degree from the rest of the 48.  We wanted to continue that tradition with Pakalolo Supply Co. and being able to cultivate these new strains, that are an evolution of these very old and storied traditional Hawaiian genetics, allows us to do that.  We are very excited for the day we are able to put a poptop with these genetics inside in your hand and transport you to the Hawaiian Islands.

Don’t worry, until then we have another new strain that is much closer to being packaged and put on our shelves for retail.  This strain is called Jilly Bean and one batch is already in the flowering stage.  Though it has not been in our store before it is well known as it won the Denver Cannabis Cup in 2014.  The description from leafly follows:

jilly-bean-marijuana“Jillybean is described as being an upbeat and happy hybrid, with flavors of tangy orange and mango. This strain is a top choice for creative minds and social butterflies looking for unencumbered euphoria during daytime hours. Bred by crossing Orange Velvet andSpace Queen, Jillybean often expresses herself in deep hues of maroon on the leaves.”

It is a beautiful plant and we hope the high is just as beautiful.  Our hopes are definitely high since it won the Denver Cannabis Cup.  If you have tried it let us know what you think in the comments!

 What Has Already Arrived

We have successfully created a new type of currency here at Pakalolo Supply Company.  It does have its limits as it can only be redeemed at our retail store but that’s what makes it so cool!  Introducing… PakaCash!

img_3195

PakaCash are our new gift certificates.  They come in $25.00 intervals, you can buy as many as you like and they are a one time use only.  That is why we made them at a $25.00 price point, so that for example you would be able to purchase a gram and then pick out an accessory such as some rolling papers or a small pipe to use up the remaining amount.  Of course, you may also use them in combination with actual cash a purchase total over $25.00.  We believe these will make great, simple gifts for almost any occasion. Whether you know someone who hasn’t made it out to a cannabis retail shop, or you got a friend who is the ultimate connoisseur, hook them up with some PakaCash to let ’em know you care ;). .  I know what I’m getting my friends for their birthdays from now on!

We have two new strains on our menu this week: Headband, which is a first timer from our own cultivation, and Afghani Kush, that is making its return from Black Rapids’ cultivation.  Come on in and give them a whirl. Don’t forget we are now offering a limited amount of clones when available!  You can check out our full menu at PakaloloSupplyCo.com or Weedmaps.com. Thank you for stopping by the PakaBlog.  We hope the update served you well and the associated news will soon come to fruition. See you next time, Mahalo.

It’s Friday Folks and We’re Ready for Retail

Happy Friday! We are on to the second weekend of our new reduced business hours, and though they are not ideal for many reasons, they seem to be successfully serving their purpose.  We know the move to reduce our hours is not perfect but we also know that it will allow us to provide our patrons (that’s you) a level of consistency that every customer wants in a business.  We truly appreciate your patience and understanding during the slower times as we work to allow the industry to catch up with the demand.  For now instead of keeping our doors open everyday and clearing out our stock, only to have to close our doors until we have more bud harvested, trimmed, cured and tested, you know we will be open every Friday and Saturday to get you stocked up for the week.  We understand that some would argue that consistency implies being open on a more frequent basis and we hear you.  Unfortunately, it is simply not possible at this point in time where the amount of cultivators that are up and running is very low, and those that are open are still working out the kinks and expanding their grows, just as we are, in an industry that was illegal a few years ago.  The process of growing marijuana itself is quite time-consuming with the minimum time for a crop from clone to harvest at about 3-4 months. Not to mention the requirements put in place by the state such as testing, proper labeling and packaging, etc.  We want more than anything to be able to provide all 100,000 residents of the Fairbanks North Star Borough with the desired amount of herb that they like to consume.  We can say 100% without a doubt that is the goal we want to reach, and we believe we will. In the mean time, we can be sure to be open every Friday and Saturday until we can get back to a full week schedule…  And soon we will be because we are on a constant mission, along with all the other licensed cultivators, to upgrade, expand and improve our cultivation infrastructure so that we can serve Fairbanks the highest quality marijuana at the highest rate possible, to complete our ultimate goal in the normalization of this exciting industry! …. (nailed it!)

Attack of the Clones

We have some exciting news for all you (aspiring) gardeners out there.  This week will mark the first time we have clones for sale at Pakalolo Supply Company! We believe this also marks a huge milestone in the goal of normalizing the retail cannabis industry when you know you can go to the store and buy some cannabis plants for your home or garden.  It puts a smile on my face just thinking about it!  For those of you that don’t know, clones are very young, basically baby, marijuana plants that start out as a branch cut from matured female plants in the vegetative stage.  The cuts are placed into a growing medium with a rooting hormone and are kept very moist until they are fully rooted.  The clones we’ll have in store today and tomorrow are fully rooted in 4×4 inches of soil, slightly below 8 inches tall and ready to be moved into a bigger pot to take on nutrients and a higher wattage light source. In other words, they are ready for adoption by a responsible guardian who can nurture them into adult life where they can have clone babies and beautiful frosty buds of their own one day!

Northern Lights are out tonight.
img_3124
They are so adorable at this age!

This weekend we will be offering both Northern Lights (pictured above) and Girl Scout Cookies clones at $30 a piece for you cultivation pleasure.  You will see them behind our corner counter, right when you walk in the door, glowing in a flourescent aura.  They will be waiting here for you to take them home whether you are an experienced cannabis cultivator, a green thumb that has always wanted to take a whack at cannabis or even a complete beginner.  However, they most likely won’t be waiting very long as we have a very limited supply at approximately 25 total.  It is to be expected as it is a gift that will keep on giving if handled correctly. Not to mention that Northern Lights and Girl Scout Cookies could be considered cult classics… On your mark. Get set! GO!

What’s on the Menu?

pakalolo-menu-2-4

pakalolo-menu-2-3

This weekend our menu has everything our menu had last week in addition to the return of Cannalope Haze from Subsistence Products a sativa dominant hybrid coming in at 15.5% THC. The following read is from the description on Leafly:

“Like the name suggests, Cannalope Haze is a sweet mix of tropical, melon, and floral flavors. Almost a pure sativa that crosses Haze Brothers Original Haze and a Mexican landrace, this strain is a great solution for fatigue and when struggling with appetite loss.”

We also are featuring Sunrise Garden’s Session Joints which are low-cost, low THC prerolls at 8% THC and a price of only $8.  If you would like to see the full menu please visit our website at www.PakaloloSupplyCo.com/menu.html where you can view our Weedmaps interactive menu and stream the menu that appears on the televisions in store. Thanks for stopping by to catch up and we hope to see you this weekend at Pakalolo Supply Company. Mahalo!

 

Are We There Yet…?

Well folks it’s one week down and one week to go.  Yes, you read correctly.  We will be opening next Friday 3pm-8pm and Saturday 12pm-6pm and with our menu offering the biggest selection of strains to date!  We have received the test results for our harvest of Girl Scout Cookies and have been hard at work weighing, packaging and labeling the product for retail.  We are now awaiting the test results for the next harvest in line consisting of not 1, not 2, not even 3 but 5 different strains! (That was my best infomercial impression)  Some of them are returning favorites such as Mauna Kea White Fire OG and Northern Lights.  We will also see Pele Fire OG making its second appearance.  On top of those we will have 2 brand new strains that will be rearing their beautiful buds for the first time in our store front.  I can’t specify what they are in this blog post but if you look hard enough you can figure out at least one of the strains.  I’ll even give you a hint: its a fictional fruit from an old classic film ;).  We will also still have Orange Passion, CBD Critical Mass and The Cure on shelves for your purchasing pleasure.  That puts us at a total of 9 strains for next Friday and Saturday!  We are very excited to open our doors back up with the the biggest variety and highest quality of cannabis product in the state of Alaska.    We expect it to be quite the whirlwind of awesomeness and hope to see each and everyone of you there.

We are extremely grateful for your patience during our down time as we all wait for the industry to catch up to expectations.  However, since this hasn’t happened yet we are working on coming up with new business hours that will sustain the amount of legal marijuana available in the state right now.  This way, instead of closing our doors for a 2-3 week span again, we will open our doors once or twice a week, similar to what we are doing next weekend, so that you can stock up.  We will update you with a blog post as soon as we lock in hours that we think will serve the community to the best of our capabilities while also keeping our doors open consistently the same hours every week.

Check back next week for a blog post about our Hawaiian roots and how they have influenced our business from when it was just idea until now where it is full fledged. Thanks for staying tuned and we well see you next weekend for the marijuana mayhem that will undoubtedly follow our doors opening… Mahalo!
