Earlier this summer, Kind Oasis, a CBD mega store and community space, quietly opened in the former Kashou Carpets building, 2169 N. Farwell Ave.

Kind Oasis features over 100 CBD products such as oils, softgels, tablets, gummies, sports balm, vape cartridges and pet products. The store carries a large selection of Wisconsin-owned CBD brands – including its own Kind Oasis product line – as well as national brands.

Kind Oasis also offers free event space to foster Milwaukee’s creative community. This space can be used for educational seminars, community events and fundraisers, and as an option for local artists, musicians, fitness classes and other pop-up events.

“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 co-owner Salem Kashou.

Co-owner Erik Willms, who is originally from Mequon, lived in Montana for the past 10 years creating and refining techniques used for the concentration of cannabinoids. 

“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 depression."

Kind Oasis practices safe public health measures in the shop and offers online shopping for those who prefer zero contact. The hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
