As legalization marches ever-forward, marijuana has steadily permeated vast aspects of Canadiana. Some of these instances have included infused poutine, Count Chocula and other cereal, but the deliciousness at the heart of the Canadian identity will always be maple syrup.
Thankfully, gourmet cannabis companies like Farm and Florist have got you covered. Their delectable products are a fantastic example of what cannabis can be if one adds exceptional quality, time and an appreciation for fine dining.
Herbal Dispatch caught up with Nico, the CEO and Co-Founder of the company, to find out more about their offerings.What is the significance of the name Farm and Florist?
Sparked by a deep love for fine dining and a strong appreciation for craft cannabis, Farm and Florist embarked on the journey to creating Canada’s first line of high-end infusions.
Using only top-tier cannabis for extraction, we recognize that the quality of our distillate, oils, and syrups is integral to the overall taste of our products. The result is delicious infusions that add decadence to any meal.
How did you develop a passion for cannabis? Why this industry?
I’ve personally witnessed the plant’s positive benefits from a handful of people who suffer from different ailments such as cancer, anxiety, insomnia, physical pain, inflammation and so on.
I am a strong believer of the holistic benefits that cannabis pertains and I am passionate about spreading education and awareness of the plant’s benefits. This cannabis legalization is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I believe we are penetrating a relatively untapped market.
What is it about cannabis that inspires you?
The thing that inspires me the most about Cannabis is the research and technology that has yet to be developed.
We are at the infancy stage of this industry and I can’t wait to see what the industry pioneers have to offer in regards to technology, product and process innovation, as well as further research about the positive/negative effects of Cannabis.
What are Farm and Florist’s best-selling items and why?
Our best selling products are probably our Maple Syrup and Honey simply because a) there are very few THC infused maple syrup companies in the industry and b) they both taste very delicious.
All of our raw ingredients are organic and sourced within BC. We don’t use any additives or flavor agents!
You clearly have a love of quality products. Can you tell me of any new ones you are working on?
We have CBD options of our 4 products coming out very soon! We will also be rolling out CBD loose leaf tea and tinctures in the near future as well.
For someone who is new to cannabis and wants to try edibles, what is your advice? For example, if someone is making pancakes, how much maple syrup should they use to have a comfortable morning?
Each dose of our products are designed as a microdose to attract new/inexperienced users and casual users alike.
Each teaspoon of Honey, Coconut Oil and Olive Oil contains 9mg of THC. However, there is 9mg per Tablespoon in the Maple syrup as we know people like to use more of that product. So you should be quite comfortable with just a single dose of Maple syrup, won’t be too overbearing at all.
In general, we suggest everyone to start low and slow when first trying edibles. Each person is different and is affected differently by edibles. Start low and scale up from there so you can get a feel for your tolerance.
What would you like consumers to know the most about your incredible products?
The best thing about our products is how flexible they are when it comes to consumption choices. You can put the coconut oil in your coffee in the morning, olive oil on salads, syrups for natural sweetener, etc.
These products are designed to be incorporated into your daily lives so you can ingest THC without having to smoke or vape. We really want to push the envelope when it comes to cannabis fine dining culture. We will be launching a new cooking series as well as planning more pop up dinners in Canada.
Is Farm and Florist planning on being a part of legalization and if so, how?
All these products fall below Health Canada’s 3% cannabis concentration and only use a single-carrier ingredient, thus making them allowable for sale in the legal framework.
Look out for Farm & Florist in the coming age of legalization!
Farm and Florist products are an extraordinary addition to any meal and turn everyday foods into an experience. You can get their products shipped right to you by using Herbal Dispatch.
