Cannabis is a complex plant and contains several hundred compounds. While many of these have specific healing attributes, it is believed that when combined, the therapeutic impact of the whole plant is greater than its single-molecule parts. This is called the Entourage Effect and it is the foundational principle of our company culture.
Here at Farm, we align our belief in the Entourage Effect by taking a four pillars approach to health. As we looked deeper into wellness, we were inspired by the Endocannabinoid System. This system is present throughout the entire body and contributes to enhancing or improving the body’s ability to self-regulate. However, sometimes the body needs a little help to find balance. We believe that you can address this by taking a cannabis-accompanied, four pillars approach.
Often considered the most obvious form of health, we approach this pillar as a vehicle to encourage preventative care. This means acknowledging and recognizing boundaries, setting healthy limits and self-managing to develop positive routines. We do our best to encourage a healthy life-style with our leadership team leading by example.
Mental wellness exists on a spectrum and can fluctuate up and down over time. We aim to foster an environment that reduces stigma in order to provide peer-based resources for each individual to develop their own ways of managing well-being and finding balance. We provide access to community gardening and bee keeping too!
Farm believes in service-based engagement and building new relationships around a shared love and respect for cannabis. The first step to wellness is finding a supportive community and knowing that you are not alone. Social opportunities include volunteering, book club, staff parties and narcan training!
We’re looking for individuals with a personal growth mentality who thrive on change. Our model encourages skills and knowledge sharing so this means lots of opportunity for mentorship, feedback and education. We encourage peer lead workshops and community-based experiences.
We connect with our guests and use weed as the vehicle for doing this. We take lead in this connection by offering exceptional, and unique customer service to each visitor’s specific cannabis practise. We provide comfort for guests to share private health needs – acknowledging the stigma of chronic illness, trauma, mental health, addiction & homelessness.
We reach beyond barriers – beyond the glass that keeps us from visitors, beyond barriers of class or race or life experiences, beyond all types of diversity and the complexity of the industry.
We use our diverse knowledge to learn about our guests and find them the best possible product.
