Cannabis Influencers We Love

The cannabis community shows up in numbers on social media. Despite posting in legal states with fully compliant products, cannabis accounts frequently face prohibition-style account deletion, shadow banning, and censorship of advertisements and paid opportunities online.

 

As we spread information and ideas to other connoisseurs across the world on our social media platforms despite this adversity, we’re doing our part to put an end to the negative stigmas associated with cannabis consumption by simply living our truths, unashamed, in the public eye.

 

OLO sublingual cannabis strips are discreet, vegan, calorie-free methods of tapping into four different lifestyle experiences. Our active, chill, focus, and social sublingual strips are intended to help cannabis enthusiasts master each day with a boost of full-spectrum cannabinoids and the added bonus of fresher breath. Simply place an OLO sublingual cannabis strip under the tongue and get to doing what you do best.

To celebrate our lovely cannabis community, we’ve rounded up a list of our favorite, OLO-approved, activists, chefs, experts, writers, designers, and curators, to give you a look inside what they do, and what this exciting, booming industry has to offer.

Heajin says,”there’s no better way to celebrate life and love in all its glory, than with food.” OLO was lucky enough to experience the exquisite Big Bad Wolf flavor experience at Thursday Infused last fall, and we highly recommend it!
