A medical marijuana dispensary located in Massachusetts came up with a new option for patients with such a prescription. Those unwilling to smoke their dose or eat it in sweets can now consume it in the form of pot pizza.
This new variant has already been on the menu for about three weeks now and is available at the Ermont Inc., in Quincy, a suburb in the south of Boston, Massachusetts. Those who have tried the new option are returning good reviews, as they appreciate the new way of consuming their dose of medicinal marijuana.
Pot Pizza, a New Marijuana Edible on the Loose
Seth Yaffe, the Ermont Director of Operations, stated that the company was already offering a whole range of edibles. However, they were still looking to provide a way of consuming the marijuana dose without also having to eat a lot of sugar.
According to the company’s reports, the dispensary already sold some 200 pot pizzas. These come at 6-inches and sell for $38 per piece. Topped with a special tomato sauce, this contains 125 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol. More commonly known as THC, this is a psychoactive compound in marijuana.
“A lot of our patients really wanted to basically figure out a different way to medicate that didn’t always remind them that they were trying to do something to take care of themselves,” stated Yaffe.
He added that this new method makes medicating seem somewhat less “scary”.
Ermont, who produces the pot pizza, integrates all the production phases of medical marijuana. It has marijuana growing areas, a laboratory, retail space, and also a kitchen.
The team behind it is also looking to find new ways of including the flavorless liquid cannabinoids into foods, ingredients, and sauces. This way, they can offer as many edible variants as possible.
All of the products are only destined for medical needs, and the edibles come packed in childproof packages and with dosages on the labels. The new pot pizza can only be purchased with state-issued medical marijuana ID cards. When asked about their topping, Yaffe said it is up to the patients’ choice to add their own.
