East Fork Cultivars keeps evolving

  If there’s one thing that is noticeable when talking with Mason Walker, chief executive of East Fork Cultivars, a CBD-focused grow in Takilma, it’s his transparency. The level at which he explains things — whether about the company’s cultivation techniques, business practices, philosophies or opinions about the cannabis industry in general — is clear, concise and earnest. He answers questions willingly; this could be because of his seven-year stint at the Portland Business Journal, or maybe it’s because he truly believes in what he is doing and is proud of what the farm’s family is creating. But one thing

Shake It, Blend It, Whisk It — Three great hemp seed oil salad dressings

When I worked at The Ohio Hempery back in the early to mid ‘90s, one of the highlights was sitting around a big, old, honey-colored wooden table with a dozen other Hempery employees and eating giant salads at our communal lunches. Don Wirtshafter, the owner of the company, had an oil press where he squeezed imported hemp seeds for fresh oil we used to make various products we sold online and through our mail-order catalog, including hemp seed oil shampoo, conditioner, lip balm, soaps and massage oil. Don was a heck of a cook — he co-wrote a hemp seed

Bud and Breakfast

Imagine this: You’ve spent a day motoring through wine country or walking through the Columbia Gorge or perhaps exploring the Nehalem River. You’re on a romantic getaway, or just taking time for yourself. You check into a beautiful, welcoming inn and find your room. On a serving tray you notice a place to put your vape leftovers, a grinder and a top-of-the-line vaporizer, home-made cookies and a list of local dispensaries. You take a contented sigh, smoke a vape, then go out on the spacious deck and light up your joint or pipe with fellow cannabis-friendly visitors. You’re gearing up

Weed on wheels

Not only can you enjoy your favorite flowers, edibles and concentrates in the privacy of your own home, Medford residents now can have them delivered straight to their door by Emerald Triangle Dispensary, 246 E. 10th St. Privacy and convenience are the key drivers here (no pun intended), along with the needs of homebound medical marijuana patients, for whom delivery can be a lifeline. With a clientele that includes veterans (who get a good discount), the elderly, and people who may have started partying and sensibly don’t want to drive, Emerald is busy, says store manager Brenna Moore. For that

Incredible edible herb

You’ve come a long way, Alice B. Toklas. You’ll forgive the pun, but perhaps you remember Alice’s famous recipe for “hashish fudge,” which she published in her cookbook, released in 1954 — still one of the best-selling cookbooks ever. These days, with the legalization of medical and recreational marijuana in many states — including, of course, here in Oregon — edible pot products are increasing in variety, popularity and sophistication. With 28 states now allowing medical marijuana, and more ramping up with recreational pot — California, Maine and Massachusetts are in line — momentum is building. And the good news
