Medical marijuana users in Massachusetts don’t have to treat their pain with the same old smokeable flower and cannabis-infused sweets weed consumers in other legal pot states use to get stoned.
The dispensary, which sells a variety of pot products to medical marijuana cardholders, offers 6-inch cheese pizzas for $38 and infuses tomato sauce with 125 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol, cannabis’ psychoactive ingredient commonly referred to as THC.
Steve Yaffe, director of operations at the company, told CBS' local affiliate that the pizza was created to give patients more options that weren’t loaded with sugar, like the chocolates, cookies and gummy candies that typically stock dispensary shelves around the country.
states—eight of which have legalized recreational marijuana use for adults 21 and up—innovators in the cannabis industry have developed a variety of ways for people to enjoy the powerful plant beyond just smoking weed, which has traditionally been the way people have gotten high off marijuana.
There's also Kushie Edibles Cannabutter, which infuses coconut oil with THC extracts that can be spread on to any kind of food to create a medically enhanced snack while Dixie Elixirs, a company that has been developing marijuana-infused products since 2010, offers drinkable tinctures and oils combined with THC that can be added to food.
