Happy Father’s Day! We can assure you dad is tired of the go-to wallet upgrade. Get creative with your father’s day gift this year by taking him to Kind Love for a unique shopping experience! Mention our newsletter between June 13 and June 19 and choose one of the above daily specials of your choice at checkout! Limit one per customer, per visit. Just don’t forget to start low and go slow when introducing pops to a new cannabis product. A starting dosage of 5 milligrams is ideal for any novice edible user and we recommend waiting a couple hours for the gradual onset of effects before increasing this dosage. Of course it’s not the gift that makes the occasion, rather it’s the quality time spent with dad that he will appreciate and remember for years to come.
Women’s Appreciation Night
We know women are busy. Many women are givers, healers by nature, often prioritizing the needs of their children, their pets, their families, and their work over themselves. We would like to show appreciation for the women in our lives with an exclusive special for ladies every Monday night 8 pm to 10 pm. This month ladies can enjoy 20% off their total purchase. Avoid the after work rush and enjoy the savings all while getting your cannabis errand out of the way at the start of the week. Take some time for yourself and get to know your personal preferences in an unrushed, tranquil environment. We encourage women to educate themselves on what strains they like given their distinct cannabis preferences from men overall. Our budtenders are here to guide you toward an optimal section and we hope to provide you with a head start in this month’s featured article: "Strains for Women".
Strains for Women
Women are not new to cannabis, yet data collected by Leafly shows that their interest in cannabis is growing. Women are becoming savvy cannabis consumers and a central driver of this change is education. On the whole women are beginning to look more deeply into their preferences and Leafly has discovered certain strains and qualities that seem to be more popular among females. For example, the top three strains most viewed by women on Leafly are Blue Dream, Girl Scout Cookies and Sour Diesel, with the remainder of the list consisting mainly of strains that offer sativa-dominant effects. Commonalities among the selected strains include a tendency towards uplifting, euphoric, and happy effects. Women also have been found to prefer certain flavor profiles as well, with the majority opting for sweet, fruity flavors and citrus-heavy aromas. In regard to strain varieties, Leafly data shows that women are often seeking more high-CBD options in comparison to men. Topping the list of strains that wo men view more often than men are those associated with a high-CBD content, such as Charlotte’s Web and Harlequin. Known for possessing an abundance of medicinal qualities, high-CBD strains are ideal troubleshooters for a variety of symptoms and ailments specific to women such as menstrual cramps, PMS, menopause and breast cancer.Considered a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, CBD allows smokers to remain clear-headed and functional, able to go about their day in a relaxed state free of distracting aches and pains. Users can expect a light and tranquilizing body buzz that relieves pain and anxiety, reduces inflammation, and equips the nervous system to handle life’s daily pressures. Overall female preferences seem to trend in the direction of stains that minimize anxiety, a common problem that twice as many women are likely to experience than men. Alongside high-CBD options, it has also been noted that women tend to prefer strains that are lower in THC. Some women find they prefer the subtle effects and fruity flavor found in a strain like Blueberry, which generally tests under 20% THC, over a heavy-hitter like Alien Rock Candy, whose THC percentage tests in the mid 30’s and can feel overwhelming to the light smoker or novice user. Gender aside, the only way to truly know one’s preferences is to try a variety of strains and intake methods and see what
works for you!
Local Artist Spotlight Milinda Lawless
At Kind Love we believe that cannabis and culture go hand in hand. We would love to show our support for Denver’s thriving local art community by spotlighting Milinda Lawless, a talented local artist and valued member of our staff. You can find her tapestries gracing the walls of our Medical and Recreational shops, and all art is available for purchase alongside several hand-crafted apparel and accessory items. Milinda shares with us some of theinspiration behind her collection:
Q. What art do you most identify with and how would you describe your personal aesthetic?
A. I have always considered myself more of a folk artist than anything else. I taught myself how to sew in my early
20’s and most of the objects and material I use in my pieces are found objects. My art has a sense of deconstruction to it because all the textiles I use come from clothing that I completely take apart and use for their color or texture, then put back together in a new way. I like to think my art pieces breathe with history and life from all the time it spent in the world, before I found it.
Q. What inspires you to create?
A. Often times, I find a single object or piece of fabric that speaks to me, and go from there. It might be an animal skull or some exotic fabric I scored at a garage sale but it is typically the material that lets me know what it wants to be turned into in its next life. I made a pact with myself a long time ago to surround myself with things I love, knowing that if I did that, I would never have a hard time finding inspiration. I honestly get inspired all the time by all the beauty, even when it’s covered up in sludge, around me. My sweet, little family is a huge source of inspiration as well. Living with a crew of muses is quite the perk. There are more ideas in my head of things I want to make than what my physical body can realistically create.
Q. What themes do you pursue through your art? What message would you like it to evoke?
A. I am very intrigued by the thin veil that exists between us humans and the cosmos. I like to
create characters that are not from this world, or if they are from this world, it is obvious they are not your average humans. I am inspired by ancient knowledge and how it relates to us in this modern world. I am very captivated by the magic we humans can access if we align ourselves with love. In my art, I have been exploring the spirit animal side of humans and celebrating the relationship we have with nature and death.
Q. Do you find cannabis influences your creativity? What are your favorite strains?
A. I use cannabis for all its wonderful abilities, especially creativity. It’s not like I smoke and I immediately get creative. It’s the cannabis though that sets my third eye free and allows me to see through the bullshit of the world so that I can focus on what is really important. Being a predominantly sativa lady, I have a few favorite strains: Golden Goat, Cookies and Cream, Bordello, Super Lemon Haze and don’t forget Gorilla Glue!
Q. Where can we find your art?
A. On Etsy @ Lawless Revolution. On Facebook @ Lawless Revolution Wear. And on Instagram @ lawlessrevowear. Thank you all for your support
O-pen Oil Vaporizer Pens
Whether you are a seasoned smoker, or new to cannabis, a fun and convenient method of ingestion can be found in oil vaporizer pens by O-pen. The smoke from vaporized oil dissipates quickly and the pen eliminates the need for any additional smoking equipment, making it a great choice for those looking for something discrete that comes ready for use. Cartridges are strain specific and available in 150mg, 250mg and 420mg. Don’t forget to purchase a battery alongside the oil cartridge of your choice, or purchase two "Reserve" cartridges and get the battery for free! We offer a variety of premium genetics such as Alien Rock Candy and Gorilla Glue, and Kind Love customers have the exclusive option of selecting an O-pen cartridge processed using Kind Love’s quality flower. We have a strain for every occasion, including a high CBD strain option aptly named "Spectrum" for its panacea of medicinal qualities and effects.
With the solstice on the horizon, summer is only weeks away and things are heating up outside and at Kind Love! Join us for some summer fun and grab some savings at some exciting new events on this year’s summer calendar.
