The newest edible from a Boston-area marijuana dispensary isn't just a snack-- it's a full on meal.
Meet the weed pizza.
Ermont Inc., a dispensary in Quincy, Mass., has created a new pizza sauce infused with 125 milligrams of THC and they’re using that sauce to top their homemade personal pizzas. The pizzas are then baked and frozen on-site in Ermont Inc.’s kitchen.
But, for dispensary visitors, these weed pizzas might be too good to be true. There are some downsides to the THC-infused snack, the biggest of which may be the high cost. The personal weed pizzas will cost $40, they cannot be delivered and in order to purchase one of these pizzas, a valid Department of Public Health-issued patient or caregiver card is necessary.
Furthermore, the THC-content of the pizza is far too high for a single serving.
According to Vice, the suggested dosage is 10 milligrams of THC every two hours, not 125 milligrams in the time it normally takes to consume a 6-inch personal pizza.
Emront Inc. says their new weed pizza was not designed for the average stoner to indulge in: It was created for the medical marijuana patients that don’t feel comfortable smoking or vaping, reports Boston magazine.
“We are pleased to offer a new, more appetizing way for our patients to alleviate pain and discomfort,” Ermont CEO and founder Jack Hudson said in a press release obtained by Boston magazine.
“The combination of a food as popular as pizza with the medicinal benefits of marijuana represents an important milestone in the evolution of our high-quality marijuana infused products menu.”
Along with the personal pizza, Ermont Inc. also offers THC-infused macaroni and cheese, cookies, hot sauce, chocolates, olive oils and a pleathora baked goods to satisfy any sort of sweet munchies craving.
