One of the highlights to working in a cannabis dispensary is all the amazing vendors with which we have the pleasure of working. And to shine a little light on these great companies working so hard to bring cannabis products to the masses, we're launching a brand new vendor spotlight series. First up? KYND Cannabis Company!
From Then to Now
KYND opened in 2015 to serve the medical community, before recreational cannabis was legal in the Silver State. And a lot has happened since then. “We’ve grown from six flower rooms, which produced about 200+ pounds a month, to 25 flower rooms and over 100 employees producing 1200+ pounds of flower a month,” says David Robison, tissue culture supervisor and former marketing manager, who’s been with the company since 2017. Six years is a long time in the relatively young cannabis industry, and it's given KYND time to build a reputation for premium flower.
Turns out, that makes a lot of sense. “High quality flower is our priority,” Robison says. “Everyone on staff is passionate about making our flower shine from growth to cure to packaging, and every step is taken to ensure the trichomes are protected and the terpenes are preserved.”
Here at The Dispensary, you can buy some of that premium KYND flower yourself. But the company also uses it to create regular and infused prerolls, a potent topical and cult-favorite tincture, plus concentrates and vape extracts.
At KYND, flower comes first. "Flower is always number one,” says Robison. “We consistently have great test results, quality, and a selection of strains that keeps the menu fresh.” But we pushed for other favorites, and we weren't disappointed. “Our infused prerolls are definitely in the top three. These are based on our heavy-hitting strain blends for a way to dial in your experience. We infuse flower with same strain and often will also blend new combinations for heady experiences—not for the faint of heart!”
KYND's vapes are also immensely popular. “Our pens provide a great experience of our flowers, and all pens from the KYND facility are created with cannabis-derived terpenes, for a true-to-flower flavor," says Robison.
There are a lot of cannabis companies out there. So what sets KYND apart? “Our deep-water culture processes may be daunting to others, but this is how we maintain clean environments and dial in exactly what our plants need to thrive,” says Robison. It also ensures the kind of consistency that means a great experience with every KYND product.
This kind of approach to cultivation recently caught the attention of the CannaCribs team, which came to check out KYND's award-winning grow and deep water culture hydroponics in person. “They came through for a deep dive into all we do,” says Robison. “It’s a great way to get a tour of our facility, right from your home!”
KYND is also the proud recipient of Best Strain for its MTF from the local Reno News and Review. “And for good reason! This strain is a great sativa that smells strongly of terpinolene (a distinctive piney, herbaceous, floral, even mildly citrusy fragrance), and boasts a high terpene and cannabinoid test result. This one sells fast in stores, so get it before it goes if you see it!”
A Loyal Fan Base
“Our biggest fans are those curious about cannabis and new to the product,” says Robison. “We pride ourselves on education and teaching people how cannabis can be beneficial when integrated into daily life.” But KYND has OG fans too. “We love our fans who have been consuming cannabis long before it was recreationally legal. These are the folks who know and love our legacy strains, such as Sour Diesel, MTF, and Blackwater OG.”
We're excited to report that KYND has some new strains in the works, so keep an eye out next time you stop by The Dispensary. And if you're new to the brand, we recommend trying it all. Really, you can't go wrong!
