A medical cannabis dispensary in Quincy, Massachusetts is now offering a cannabis-infused frozen pizza to their patients, using flavorless liquid cannabinoids in the sauce and ingredients, FOX6NOW reports.
Seth Yaffe, director of operations for Ermont who previously spent 20 years in restaurant management, said the “bar pie” makes medicating “less scary” for some patients “and less a reminder of what they’re psychologically trying to distance themselves from.”
“A lot of our top sellers right now are olive oil, honey, peanut butter — things our patients can use to do their own cooking at home,” Yaffe said in the report. “We’re working on a vegan mayonnaise right now that patients will be able to put on a sandwich.”
Like other medical cannabis products, the pizza is clearly labeled with dosages and packaged in a ways that’s tamper-proof and child-safe. The label indicates the pizza contains 128.98 milligrams THC, 12.75 milligrams CBD, and 3.14 milligrams CBC. According to an Associated Press report, Ermont charges $38 for the 6-inch pies. Yaffe said the dispensary has sold about 200 in three weeks.
The pizza is currently only available in cheese but patients can choose to add their own toppings before tossing it in the oven.
