Nutritional Education

The seeds of the cannabis plant are one of the most nutrient dense superfoods on the planet, and Flower Farma treats it like it should be — as an ingredient.

Each delicious oil, prepared by The Flower Chef and powered by Skagit Organics, is made from raw hemp oil. Hempseed oil is high in healthy fats, and is said to have a perfect balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. These “good fats” are vital to a healthy endocannabinoid tone and overall health.* It is also rich in Vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium and many B Vitamins.

Also discover our OLA HEMP line, which gives you all the nutritional benefits of hemp oil, CBG and CBD without the THC.

Dig into OLA, and discover the amazing health benefits of each oil’s additional natural, organic ingredients. Enjoy them as a finishing ingredient with your favourite oil-based recipes, salad dressings, mocktails and smoothies, or simply on their own! Bon appetite!

Why Consume Cannabis?

At Flower Farma, we view cannabis as an ingredient that offers the nutritional benefits of cannabinoids. According to research studies, consuming is a great way to get a dose of cannabis without the lung irritation caused by smoking it. When cannabis oil is directly consumed, there is increased absorption through the mucosal membranes under the tongue, in the cheeks, and on the gums – which increases the efficacy and rate of absorption, leading to a faster onset and more predictable effects. Consuming cannabis oil this way also allows it to bypass the liver unlike consuming cannabis chocolates and gummies, which are processed through the liver.

When cannabinoids are processed through the liver, it is converted into an 11 hydroxy metabolite — a water soluble version of THC that is easier for the liver to process. Since cannabis is fat soluble and humans are mostly water, we have to convert THC so our bodies can process and expel it. This process can take a long time and the effects are unpredictable — which is why edibles can take so long to start working, last much longer, and can be unpredictable in terms of strength.

How Will You Ola?

Our OLA is prepared intentionally to provide the most beneficial full spectrum cannabinoid profile possible, and is best enjoyed as a finishing oil or completely on its own.

Cannabinoids are very heat sensitive, and should not be cooked or heated in any way. THC, CBD and CBG change properties when heated, and may produce side effects such as drowsiness.

Drizzle over crackers for a charcuterie board, float on your favorite ginger beer for a fun infused mocktail or toss into your favorite salad.

Don’t feel like cooking? Enjoy OLA all by itself to experience its beautiful flavors!

Flower Farma also offers our THC-free line — OLA HEMP — giving you all the nutritional benefits of hemp oil, CBG and CBD without the THC. Drizzle, toss, or float OLA HEMP to enhance your recipes, or indulge in its delicious THC-free flavors on its own.

*While you can supplement your endocannabinoid system with cannabinoids like THC and CBD, the best ways to achieve optimum endocannabinoid tone are through diet and exercise. Incorporating different components from the cannabis plant as an ingredient into your diet is an excellent way to increase your intake of healthy fats, amino acids, as well as essential vitamins and minerals.
