420-friendly treehouses and other summertime ideas fill this month’s issues of Northwest Leaf, Oregon Leaf, and Alaska Leaf.


August 2017


This month’s magazine shares some beautiful gardens and products along with a look into a new form of pot tourism—420 friendly treehouses. I had the pleasure of spending a night last month getting high in a tree at Mountainview B&B in Monroe, and it was truly a great experience. From two treehouses to tiny houses and a geodesic dome for those really looking to blast off, the B&B is an incredible place to stay and represents what I hope is a new trend in Cannabis tourism.

August 18-20 is Seattle Hempfest, and we’ll explore some “Do’s and Don’ts” and a reminder to support this truly historic festival. The Leaf and the entire Cannabis industry owes a debt of honor to the festival, which paved the way for all our businesses and the freedoms that we now enjoy. Please attend the festival this year, and please donate! Giving even $5 helps support the largest volunteer driven event for Cannabis in the world!

Stop by Leaf Nation Hempfest booths #651-654 for a CBD dab and a magazine for a friend!

This month’s issue also features a book review, new Budshot from Kristen Angelo and a fire Strain and Concentrate of the Month. We also have a new Growtech and Behind the Strain, a budtender and patient profile, and so much more for you to read! As always, thanks for reading and sharing the Leaf. I hope you enjoy this issue we worked so hard to bring to you.
