For the average medical cannabis patient who prefers consuming their medication in edible form, options are oftentimes limited to sweet treats such as THC-infused brownies or gummy bears. While more healthy options do exist, there isn’t much byway for those who want a more savory meal to deliver their dose.
But one dispensary in Quincy, Massachusetts is allowing patients to consume cannabis through the form of the finest stoner comfort food: pizza. Ermont Inc. recently unveiled its 6-inch personal pizza pies that are assembled, freshly baked, and then frozen on-site before being sold to patients. The tomato sauce lathered atop this cheesy goodness is infused with 125 milligrams of THC.
Wednesday's off to a terrific start and we have the pleasure of announcing our newest Marijuana infused product, Cheese Pizza! Infused with our high strength THC distillate this South Shore bar style pizza is a delicious doughy treat ready after just a few minutes in your oven! #Ermont #edibles #pizza #cheese #nom #tasty #treat #datdough #doughdude

This cannabis-infused snack follows the similar “bar style” variety found throughout popular South Shore pizza joints, offering thin crust and bubbly cheese that seeps over the crust. The medicated classic was created by a group with vast culinary experience, including Ermont’s operations manager Seth Yaffe, cannabis infusion consultant Adam Gendreau, and chef Keith Brooks.
“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 Ermont CEO and founder Jack Hudson.
Unfortunately, recreational users will have to tame those salivating taste buds, as these six-inch pizzas are restricted to those with a valid patient or caregiver card, for now. This unique $38 edible can only be found at the dispensary, and is not available for delivery.
Outside of cheese pizza, Ermont Inc. also has a wide range of other interesting cannabis-infused edibles, including macaroni and cheese, olive oil, hot sauce, as well as the more typical sweets. Whether or not these will eventually be made available for recreational use in Massachusetts is still unclear.
