We approached cannabis with the extraordinary thought that if we were only looking at effects in terms of indica and sativa, then we were limiting the kinds of experiences we could create. To go beyond strains, we assembled a team of biochemists, neuroscientists, psychologists, and cannabis experts to apply their expertise to our analyses and consumer testing process. We honed in on the way cannabinoids and terpenes acted on the human endocannabinoid system, and how we could use them to define a specific experience. After conducting hundreds of consumer tests, four distinct experiences were perfected. Our next challenge was delivering a unique format. That’s when we came to sublingual: it meant OLO wouldn’t need to be smoked and would take effect substantially faster than any edible—completely unlike anything else out there.
At our custom production facility in Richmond, CA, we use the latest, top of the line food and pharma equipment to create our sublingual strips. Thanks to our advanced manufacturing and stringent quality control, each strip is always dosed at exactly 5 or 10 mg—the perfect amount to micro-dose or have a more casual experience.
Faster than any edible, and almost as quick as vaping, OLO sublingual strips take effect in 10 to 15 minutes or less. This is because, unlike an edible which gets absorbed through the unpredictable gastrointestinal tract, our strip dissolves under your tongue so it’s absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the mouth’s mucous membrane.
Our experiences were all developed through a rigorous double-blind testing process and are the result of carefully altering the ratios of isolated cannabinoid and terpene oils. It took hundreds of tests, but in the end we succeeded in crafting four precise blends, each with perfectly balanced cannabinoid and terpene ratios, and each delivering a distinct experience.
The simple, easy-to-use format ensures anyone can enjoy OLO, wherever they are. The small strip fits comfortably under the tongue, and there’s none of the judgment or scrutiny (or smells) that can accompany smoking or vaping in public.
We start with locally grown, pesticide-free plants that are processed at a state-of-the-art laboratory in Berkeley. Using a supercritical CO2 extraction method, highly pure cannabinoid and terpene oils are distilled from the plants and then carefully blended according to our exact and proprietary specifications. The blends are then combined with all natural ingredients to create our sublingual strips.
OLO is triple tested to ensure quality and consistency. Through a leading, third party cannabis and food science lab in San Francisco, our flower and oil is carefully tested for purity and quality, as well as meeting standards for international food safety. For our final strip, we use a batch statistical sampling to ensure we’re delivering a precise, consistent, and delightfully minty experience.
