Massachusetts-based dispensary introduces pot pizza for Patients

Posted by Sagar Satapathy on June 12, 2017.

Marijuana patients, who don’t prefer pot medication in the form of smoke or sweets, have a rather new option. A medical cannabis dispensary based in Massachusetts has offered another aromatic option – marijuana pizza.

Ermont Inc., a medical marijuana dispensary in Quincy, introduced this new form of medication to its menu. The six-inch frozen pizza is infused with 125 milligrams of Tetrahydrocannabino (THC) concentrate, manufactured by the company. The dispensary which started the sale around four weeks back, are already getting a great response.

“We are pleased to offer a new, more appetizing way for our patients to alleviate pain and discomfort. 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,” said Jack Hudson, CEO and founder of Ermont, in a statement.

The pizza is available for $38. The company has sold about 200 pizzas already. The option is available only for people with medical marijuana cards issued by the State.

Earlier, dispensaries had introduced an option of pot brownies for its patients. Ermont, which opened in October 2016, also offers hot fudge, peanut butter, olive oil, honey and a wide range of other options with THC to choose from.

Ermont’s Director of Operations Seth Yaffe, who was part of the team which decided on the menu said the option was introduced to offer a meal without sugar. He also added that the edibles had a longer lasting effect of THC in comparison to smoking cannabis.

The pizza has a crispy crust with cheese and tomato sauce, but is packed in a tamperproof container, in order to be distinguished from other goods. The patients also have options to choose the toppings.
