News and Updates

The only thing constant in life is change.

Effective immediately ACK&R will return to being open Tuesday through Friday (Closed Mondays) with business hours of 10 am to 5 pm and Saturday by appointment. Appointments will continue to be necessary.
I also want to let you know I may be closed during the Cannabis Science Conference West, September 4-6 and plant to be  closed a week  in November, so please consult your schedule to see when you need to see me or the doctor.
It’s been four years since I’ve worked in the office so I’ve decided it’s best that I get up there and get comfortable and thoroughly engrossed in where and what everything is so I will be able to train the right person when the time comes. (When that time comes, All Star Labor and staffing will be where to apply).
Training and learning the job again at the same time is an enormous task, so at this time it’ll just be easiest for me to do it solo for the most part. With everyone’s cooperation this will be quite do-able. The first week is going fine – Monday was a holiday, I only forgot to shut off the “OPEN” sign and check the email – but other than that, Tuesday was golden and Wednesday got better!
So, onward and forward we go with continued prayers for wellness for all and special prayers for Laura and her family. Thank you for being a part of this great “thing”. We will continue to move forward and one day you will see the ACKR Canna-it-ALL Healing Center and be able to say, “I knew them, when!”

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.)

Rhea has been invited to be on Valley Talk, KGAL AM Radio 1580 on Monday February 26th, 930 – 10 am.
She will be discussing the opioid crisis and using Smokeless Cannabis Remedies to end it. Give it a listen!
​She was invited to speak again on Monday, March 12th at 9:00 am for Part 2 of using Smokeless Cannabis Remedies to end the opioid crisis.
​Both podcast can be found at this link, just look for the corresponding dates: kgal.com/valley-talk-shows

Well, here we are six months later.  I waited from July to the end of October 2017 for the OLCC to get us on board to no avail. I’m so thankful that wasn’t meant to be!  They needed for me to spend roughly $15,000 to have a surveillence system that would meet their needs … certainly not my needs … They simply gave me too long to think about it and I finally got real still and heard The Creator telling me to stop waiting on the state and to get busy teaching the people how to make the medicine they need.  So, there you go.

At Albany’s Canna Kitchen & Clinic, we still have our monthly Canna Doctor, in fact now it is weekly.  We are also conducting $25 consults to help you determine what product you need or which cooking consult to take.  As an introduction special,  when you schedule a cooking consult, you will save $25 off the $200 price if you’ve paid for a consult.  This is time and money well spent.

On March 4, 2018 Rhea will be speaking about the EndoCannabinoid System and Smokeless Cannabis Remedies. This briefing is geared toward senior citizens in our community who are Cannabis Naive and would like to learn more. Space is limited, you must RSVP by contacting us at Albany’s Canna Kitchen & Research.  The easiest way may be on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Albanys-Canna-Kitchen-Research-LLC-245079808872040/
Due to past bad behavior by some, I find it necessary to inform you that anyone trying to “hawk” an agenda or product will be removed and trespassed … it won’t be worth your time or embarrassment, trust me.  This will be, as all my events are, a NON-CONSUMPTION Event. Please call with any questions, our phone number remains 541-981-2620 and we are still located at 2300 Ferry St SW, Ste 1., Albany, OR 97322.

13 July 2017

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.  We will have our products in all the local dispensaries and hope to be across the state in no time at all.  When you go to a dispensary, be sure and ask for Smokeless Cannabis Remedies from Albany’s Canna Kitchen and have them call us at 541-981-2620 to get on the distribution list.  Thank you all for your continued support!


7 February 16

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!

I am pasting a letter below that I sent to everyone on our email list today – if you didn’t receive the letter and would like to have, please send me your correct email address.  I had about 10 email addresses that failed this time, so I need your help!  Obviously I can’t put a list of names of those whose address failed … LOL!!!  I am also about to write a short blog, so there will be some new or different information (to many) posted there, too.


Looking forward to seeing and hearing from all of you soon, letter follows.

Good afternoon!

Well, thankfully, things at Albany’s Canna Kitchen AND Albany’s 1st Gramsterdam are moving right along!  It has been rather crazy trying to get everything pulled together to get it all done by 12/13/14, but we’re doing all we can to make that happen.  In the midst of that, we have two clinics to fill and prepare for.  We have clinic this Tuesday, December 9th, and again on the 19th.  For those of you who saw our doctor here last year, your price will be $135 through January. We are having to raise our price thereafter,  but want to get as many of you in as we can before then.  We do still have some seats available in Tuesday’s clinic, do you have your records or can you get the ROI signed and in to us to submit today or tomorrow?  Remember, you have 90 days from the day the doctor signs your form for the state to receive it.  Let’s get this filled up so I can get back to work on Gramsterdam!

Speaking of Gramsterdam, boy are we getting excited!  Sunday we had help getting one of the walls secured, and Saturday we are hoping to get the other two walls and doors in.  Phew!  Kind of close time-wise, but hey, with God ALL things are possible!  If we are meant to open on 12/13/14 we will, if it needs to be after that so be it.  I REALLY like the sounds of it since we opened ACK&R on 11/11/11 it just makes sense to continue to 12/13/14!

Before we know it this year will be gone … and we would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to each of you for your support it has been truly appreciated.  We wish you the very merriest of Christmases and the happiest of New Years and look forward to seeing you very soon!

Blessings all,

Rhea, Kendra, and Bess

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

YES, we are going to open a Smokeless Cannabis Remedy Dispensary!  We are very excited, it is time. We’ve secured a location and are ready to move forward on it.  I’ve done the basic footwork, and will move forward with the next step tomorrow.

This will be a job-creating move.  I would like to try out employees as volunteers first, just to be sure we have a good fit.  There is much more to do before we open, but we wanted you to know – we’re on our way!!!  And our name?  We shall be named “Albany’s 1st Gramsterdam” but will answer to Gramsterdam.  We are so very excited and hope you are, too!


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 $275.  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
