Now Open: Kind Oasis Modernizes Milwaukee’s CBD Shopping Experience with Premium yet Affordable Products
Buying CBD products in Milwaukee no longer has to be intimidating and confusing. “From the beginning, we’ve been dually-focused: to provide premium yet affordable CBD, and create an inviting space for our community to learn about, experience and purchase these goods,“ says Salem Kashou, the owner of the Eastside’s newest CBD store, Kind Oasis™, located in the former Kashou Carpets building on 2169 N Farwell Ave.
“In the last few years, we’ve seen an explosion in the popularity of CBD in Milwaukee and beyond,” explains Kashou. “Unfortunately, we’ve also seen a corresponding increase of pop-up stores selling overpriced, and sometimes, untested products from people who know little about what they’re actually selling. Our goal is to make the everyday shopper more comfortable and better educated about the various types of CBD so they can achieve optimal therapeutic effects at the most affordable pricing in town.“
Co-owner Erik Willms, who is originally from Mequon, lived the last 10 years in Montana. Much of that time was spent creating and refining techniques used for the concentration of cannabinoids. He will utilize his experience to improve industry standards for both product quality and consumer price.
“Our aim is to set the bar for CBD quality in Milwaukee,” notes Willms. “We’ve seen the wide-ranging comforting benefits that come with using quality CBD for chronic muscle and joint pain, insomnia, anxiety, focus, stress, and even depression. That is why we place such a huge emphasis on education and third-party testing. And we only provide medicated products from reputable brands with the strictest adherence to quality control and testing. You’ll find only the best Hemp-derived CBD products at Kind Oasis.”
The store, which opened in June, might be best described as a family-friendly, CBD wonderland. It features over 100 CBD products ranging from oils, softgels, tablets and gummies to sports balm, vape cartridges and a unique line of pet products. Besides selling its own Kind Oasis™ branded items, the store carries a large selection of Wisconsin-owned CBD brands, as well as national brands such as Medterra®, Plant People®, and Green Roads®. Just CBD-curious? The store also carries a thoughtfully curated gift selection including goods for the home, kids, pets, outdoor living, and lifestyle.
Also unique to Kind Oasis is the store’s free event space to foster Milwaukee’s creative community. This space can be used for educational seminars, community events and fund-raisers, as well as an option for local artists, musicians, fitness gurus, and others to host their own pop-up events.
“We’ve created an open, inviting space for the people in our community,” says Kashou. “In today’s environment its now more important than ever for all of us to find wholeness and balance together with plant-based relief.”
Kind Oasis stays committed to the health and safety of all guests. To keep everyone safe inside the store Kind Oasis offers masks for all shoppers, hand sanitizer throughout the store, and continuous cleaning of high-touch surfaces, in addition to touchless payment processing. More so, the stores spacious and open environment promotes natural social distancing.
