A medical marijuana dispensary has made a cannabis-infused pizza for patients who don’t want to smoke the drug.
The six-inch pie, which costs $38, was designed by Ermont Inc, a large marijuana business in Quincy, on the outskirts of Boston.
It is topped with a potent tomato sauce, infused with 125mg of THC distillate, which is the psychoactive compound in marijuana. That is the equivalent to a quarter of a joint, or 12 doses of medical edibles.
According to Ermont, it has already proved a huge success, with around 200 pizzas in the first three weeks.
Only those holding a medical marijuana ID can purchase the personal-sized cheese dish.
Customers are limited in buying two of the frozen pies at a time and if they want toppings, they’ll have to add their own.
Ermont Inc came up with the idea because although the company has a range of marijuana edibles, they wanted to offer meals that patients could eat without lots of sugar.
Director of Operations Seth Yaffe said to the Boston Herald: ‘I think people at first are kind of blown away that it is one of the better frozen pizzas that they have had, and the fact that it’s medicated is pretty exciting for them.
