Pakalolo Oceanside in Anchorage is Almost Ready…

Aloha to you all and happy holidays! Our apologies for the time in between blog posts.  Don’t worry though we have a good excuse as we have been hard at work in preparation for the grand opening of Pakalolo Oceanside in downtown Anchorage.  When will it open you ask? Well let me put it like this… The opening day is so close we can almost taste it!

It has been a marathon of one task after the next as we inch and crawl closer to the green light at the end of the tunnel.  There is a ton that goes into opening any business but a cannabis business has a few (hundred) extra hoops you need to jump through before you open the doors.  As we put the finishing touches on the remodeling of the building we are simultaneously going through a handful of inspections required by the state.  We expect to have the final inspection done sometime next week and if all goes as planned Pakalolo Oceanside will be open in merely a matter of days! 

We do not yet have an exact date, based on needing to get through a couple more inspections.  As soon as we do, you can read it at the Pakablog first. If you have been in Anchorage in the last month or so (or follow us on Instagram) you may have seen our bright neon Pakalolo sign glowing above our new location at 735 W 4th Avenue right next door to the Pioneer Bar and sandwiched between two of Anchorage’s top restaurant/breweries with 49th State Brewery right behind us and Glacier Brewhouse right in front.  It is a beautiful sight to behold as it marks the beginning of an entirely new chapter as we begin to serve the Anchorage market. Here’s some very awesome pictures to hold you over.

The counter where you will talk to your favorite budtender while you broswse the iPad menus and smell jars.

We wanted to give a special shout out to our partners in this endeavor who live down in Anchorage.  They have been putting in work around the clock with us to get the building remodeled and ready for state inspection so we can hit the market with a splash.  As you can see from the pictures above they have done an outstanding job getting custom wooden display cabinets built as well as the square shelving on the wall for our product.  It’s got the Pakalolo vibe to a whole new level and we are beyond excited to open up to the public.  Opening announcement coming soon…

Mahalo for stopping by to chat with us.  Remember to check back to the Pakablog for that opening date and most of all… Get ready Anchorage!

Einstein Labs Menu Takeover and Oceanside in ANC is Almost Upon Us

Aloha Pakabloggers! We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of family, food, football and cannabis.  Now its on to the next one…Christmas! We hope you made it by Pakalolo Supply Company last weekend for our Kick Off Christmas Sale to stock up for yourself or pick up some early Christmas presents with some big savings.   Cannabis seems to make everything a little better including the holidays.  That’s why giving the gift of cannabis is never a bad idea.  If you aren’t sure what strain or product to get for someone then we suggest getting some PakaCash, $25 gift cards to our store.  PakaCash is a perfect gift for someone who enjoys the whole experience of coming into the store themselves, talking with budtenders, checking out the different strains, etc. It would also work quite well for that friend who hasn’t been into a cannabis shop yet but keeps mentioning how they want to (we all have one of those friends). 

Just Around the Corner…

Time has been flying by and with it approaches the opening of our brand new Anchorage location Pakalolo Oceanside!  You can now see glowing neon green Pakalolo sign above our new address at 735 W 4th avenue in downtown Anchorage right next to the Pioneer Bar.  A new pretty green awning has been put up with bright LEDs underneath lighting up the entrance (and our fancy new window wrap).  There is still a little work to do on the exterior but it’s already a thing of beauty, isn’t it?

The inside is just about ready as well with new laminate wood flooring, custom wooden/glass cabinets and new TVs mounted for menus. After a few more things are taken care of on the boring regulatory side we will be ready to open our doors to the city of Anchorage! Stay tuned because we will have a solid grand opening date very soon.

Kick Off Christmas Sale Starting Friday!

Aloha and Happy Thanksgiving! Pakalolo will be closed Thursday for the holiday but we will be right back open for a new and improved version of Black Friday.  We like to keep it positive at Pakalolo so we are having a Kick Off Christmas Sale that starts Friday and will run through the entire weekend! With the deals we have rocking tomorrow it will be easy to get some of your Christmas shopping out of the way early by giving the gift of green 😉

Now THAT is a sale…

Pakalolo Grown Mix ‘N Match

Just to sum up what you see in the image above we are bringing back the Pakalolo Grown Mix ‘N Match deal!. The Mix ‘n Match deal allows you to pick a variety of Pakalolo Grown strains in 1g or 3.5g portions. It makes it easy to stock up for yourself the holiday season, try a Pakalolo Grown strain you haven’t tried yet or grab some early gifts for your loved ones.

25% Off ALL Prerolls

You will also be getting 25% off ALL prerolls! That included Maninis, Pua Prerolls, Big Kahunas, Palms, Sixpacks and Deli Doobies.  Prerolls make excellent stocking stuffers or fun gifts for your friends. 

Premium Pua

All of our Premium Pua HI Grade AK Craft Cannabis glass jars will also be getting their prices slashed for the Kick Off Christmas Sale.  The 4 gram jars will be $60 while the 8 gram Big Kahunas will only be $100! Premium Pua is the perfect gift for the friend or family member that is a cannabis connoisseur.  Our highest quality buds chosen at the time of harvest to be hand trimmed and specially cured in individual glass jars for the ultimate Pakalolo Grown experience! 

Cold Creek Pull-N-Snap Shatter

Mahalo Pull-N-Snap Shatter will be $35 for a half gram and only a mere $60 for the whole gram! This shatter was extracted from our very own Pakalolo Grown Caramel Kona Coffee Kush and Maui Pineapple Chunk  Cold Creek made this shatter using a method called ethanol extraction.  This method has been gaining popularity compared to butane and CO2 as a solvent of choice for producers manufacturing high-quality cannabis extracts.  It is said to be both a very safe and efficient method of extraction. Ethanol extraction is different in the sense that it extracts more of the naturally-derived terpenes in the flower than your conventional methods giving it wonderful smooth flavor and unique color.

Don’t forget 25% off all apparel and accessories as well, so stop by Friday to Kick Off Christmas with us! As always Mahalo for stopping by to chat with us and we all hope you have the best possible Turkey Day you can possibly have.  That means smoking so much weed and eating so much food you should be so full you can only roll back and forth in one place on the couch! But remember to always hang loose 😉

Pakalolo Supply Company’s Letter of Endorsement for Candidates Supporting the Cannabis Industry

ACPAC

ALASKA CANNABIS POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE
3264 RIVERVIEW DRIVE
FAIRBANKS, ALASKA 99709
ENDORSED CANDIDATES FOR
NOVEMBER 6, 2018 GENERAL ELECTION

The following candidates for Congress, Interior State or Local elected offices have expressly stated their support for legal cannabis and the cannabis industry, and/or have worked, or voted, to further the advancement and security of Alaska residents’ right to purchase and consume safe legal cannabis.

US Representative:  We have no set endorsement for this race. While we believe that it is time to replace 85 year old Don Young, and that Alyse Galvin is a good choice to do so, Rep. Young has actively supported changing federal laws that inhibit the cannabis industry nationwide.

Governor:  Mark Begich. Mr. Begich has taken a public position in support of legal cannabis and the industry. Mr. Dunleavy worked closely with Pete Kelly to strongly oppose legal cannabis and the creation of the legal industry in clear opposition to the will of their electorates.

State Senator – District A:  Scott Kawasaki. Mr. Kawasaki has taken a public position in support of legal cannabis and the industry. Pete Kelly is public enemy #1 regarding cannabis, and most other issues that affect working individuals in Alaska. Mr. Kelly has lived off the public teat most of his adult life while decrying government spending and programs, and cutting the budget for programs that benefit Alaskan families. He is bought and paid for by the oil industry and other resource companies.

State Representative – District 1:  Kathryn Dodge. Ms. Dodge has taken a public position in support of legal cannabis and the industry. In her tenure on the borough assembly she worked to put together favorable ordinances to regulate and advance the industry. Her opponent, Bart LeBon, is a fine man, but he is just another older white conservative Republican that we already have plenty of. He declined to answer the cannabis industry questionnaire sent out to all candidates statewide.

State Representative – District 2:  Van Lawrence. Mr. Lawrence has taken a public position in support of legal cannabis and the industry. He also served on the borough assembly with Kathryn Dodge working together to advance the cannabis industry. His opponent, Steve Thompson, voted against most bills in the legislature that were in support of legal cannabis.

State Representative – District 3:  There is no recommendation for this North Pole area district. The incumbent, Tammie Wilson, is running unopposed, and is not a supporter of legal cannabis and the industry.

State Representative – District 4:  Grier Hopkins. Mr. Hopkins has taken a public position in support of legal cannabis and the industry. He was called upon to help guide last years campaign to defeat the local ballot initiatives to ban all cannabis businesses. Please do not vote for the independent candidate, Tim Lamkin, as it will split the moderate vote and take away from Mr. Hopkins’ chance to win. The Republican candidate, Jim Sackett, is a part of the religious right wing conservative movement, and is in total opposition to legal cannabis and the industry.

State Representative – District 5:  Adam Wool. Mr. Wool has taken a public position in support of legal cannabis and the industry. In his tenure in the legislature, Mr. Wool has been one of the staunchest supporters of legal cannabis. We have no knowledge of his opponent, Kevin McKinley’s, position on cannabis – he did not answer the industry questionnaire.

State Representative – District 6:  Ed Alexander. We do not know much about Mr. Alexander’s positions on cannabis. However, his opponent, David Talerico, as the incumbent has consistently voted against cannabis legislation.
Thank you for your support of legal cannabis in Alaska and the candidates that will help us keep it that way. The most important thing is – PLEASE VOTE! We have won some major battles, but the war is not over. Our opponents are still fighting us on every front, and will continue to try to make cannabis illegal again.

 

Pakalolo Anniversary Celebration: Big Sale starts Friday and a Rare Strain Drop Saturday

Aloha and salutations! The end of October and Halloween marks the official start of winter in Fairbanks. Any day now the snow will fly and stick around for the long haul instead of quickly melting upon touch down. However the end of October, specifically October 28th, is a very significant date for us at Pakalolo Supply Company.  The date marks two exciting and successful years since we opened our doors for cannabis retail to the town of Fairbanks.  In fact, that day two years ago we made the first ever legal cannabis sale in the state of Alaska.  As a result 10/28 is not only a celebration for Pakalolo Supply Company, but for the cannabis industry/community and the state as a whole as it is a date that will be recorded in Alaska’s history forever.  10/28 will now always represent a huge step in the right direction for the ultimate goal of normalizing the consumption of cannabis.  It is a date worth celebrating to say the least…

And we will do just that with a big ol’ sale starting Friday and going through Sunday, Strain Drop Saturday with our rarest strain and all new product from Einstein Labs!  The sale will serve as a special thanks you to the cannabis community that has made this all possible by being vocal, voting, voting again and continued support for our business and others like it for the last two years. Let’s take a look at what we have planned for the Pakalolo Anniversary Celebration!

Pakalolo Anniversary Sale

adTwoYearAnniversary.png

Everyone seemed to really love and appreciate the Pakalolo Grown Mix ‘n Match deal we had during the PFD Sale so were bringing it back for another go. The Mix ‘n Match deal allows you to pick a variety of Pakalolo Grown strains in 1g or 3.5g portions at a discounted price.  For example, buy four 3.5g units for $150 and you are saving $90 off the regular price!  Since we were bringing half of the PFD sale back into action we figured we might as well bring back the other half in the form of 25% off ALL prerolls!  But wait, that’s not all…

einteinLabsLogo

We just got in a huge order from Einstein Labs, all of which will be on the menu first thing Friday morning (some at a discounted price) to kick off the Anniversary Celebration.  Many of you have been waiting to restock on the fruit flavored E-blunts.  Well wait no longer because we will have Raspberry, Cantaloupe and Grape cartridges at the discounted price of $50 down from $60 all weekend long.  These cartridges have new nifty wooden tips! If you are looking for the slim cartridges specifically we will also have those in Raspberry flavor in both the 0.5g and 0.33g sizes.  If you are looking for the stronger distillate cartridges we will have Gelato @ 79% THC, Strawnana @ 79% THC  and Bubblegum @ 67% THC. We will also have The Pure in glass syringes for dabbing in Gelato and Grapefruit Haze. We have also received a ton of new Sugar Silk/Sap including AK Blackberry, Bubbas Breath, True OG, Opium, Blue Kush, Mercy Fruit and Cherry Vanilla Cookies all of which will be ONLY $45 per 0.5g down from the usual $55.  All the Pakalolo Grown strain specific Sugar silk will be down to $50 from $55 as well. Oh an don’t worry, we have completely replenished our stock of the beloved Leafchews in every flavor!

Strain Drop Saturday with Shiva

strainDropLogo

Shiva is a rare sativa strain that has been grown in our own cultivation facility since we first opened.  It is a sensitive plant requiring flowering for 14 weeks, which is almost twice as long most hybrid strains. Sativa strains are rare in part due to the time required to bloom as well as there tendency to stretch and get very tall.  It is for that reason people used faster finishing genetics to create hybrid strains that have shorter bloom phases and smaller, more manageable plants but maintain some of the effects of a Sativa.  The high from sativa strains is said to be energizing, cerebral and well suited for daytime use.  This is a true statement but it really really RINGS true with SHIVA.  While most strains advertised as Sativas still have some indica in their genetics, SHIVA is PURE Sativa.

shivaNew.jpg

The high from Shiva is invigorating.  It is almost like a cup of coffee that jump starts your brain while simultaneously giving you a powerful but very clean high,  Shiva will promote deep conversation, enhance creativity and can also give you a warm happy sense of well being making it ideal for social situations.  It is light green and light orange in color with the aroma and taste of citrus with a not of sweetness followed by a diesel like quality and a tad bit of skunkiness. We are very thrilled to be able to bring something unique into our store and curious to see what each and everyone of you think about it!  This strain rings up over 27% Total Cannabinoids. 21% of which is THC an over 1% of the extremely rare cannabinoid THCV.  THCV has some very unique effects including appetite suppression (anti munchies weed!) and a low risk of THC related anxiety due to the way the two cannabinoids interact. The sheer rarity, as well as its amazing quality, is the reason we are willing to keep putting in the time and effort to bring it to our storefront regardless of the challenges associated with cultivating this rare and exotic strain.

Mahalo as always for stopping by to chat with us. We would love nothing more for you all to come celebrate our two year anniversary with us down at Pakalolo Supply Company over the weekend.   We have new products to try and awesome savings to take advantage of.  Head over to PakaloloSupplyCo.com/storeMenu to scope out whats new. We would enjoy seeing our amazing patrons and watching them leave satisfied with smiling faces.  Until then remember to hang loose ohana!

Aloha ohana! Just like that the weekend is upon us once again.

Pakalolo Grown – ohana favorite – Chernobyl makes its return!

Chernobyl

That purpose: to make you feel amazing with 24.7% cannabinoids.  This long lasting, energetic and cerebral sativa is exactly what we need as the days get colder and the nights get longer. Completely smothered in sparkling trichomes, Chernobyl offers a distinct and pungent muskiness with sweet undertones of lemon and lime.

Dark Roast CBD Coffee

In case you were unaware and were waiting for a replenishment, we just got in a new order of whole bean CBD coffee from Strava.  But this order isn’t just a restock because with it we got the all new Dark Roast version of Restore (120mg).  The aroma of full bodied roasted coffee beans permeates through the bag and it smells amazing, and the flavors in your cup are even better.  A warm cup of that CBD dark roast coffee with a Pakalolo Grown sativa preroll just might be the perfect combination for a great morning.
