Green Halo, Tucson’s second medical marijuana dispensary to open has begun selling medical marijuana-infused foods – also known as edibles or medibles. The ebibles currently being cooked in Green Halo dispensary’s infusion kitchen are hard candies, brownies, and cookies.
Many medical marijuana patients enjoy being able to medicate by eating food rather than smoking. Edibles provide the perfect remedy for the patient who prefers not to smoke. With edibles, a patient can simply take a cookie or brownie or candy with them if they go out in public. When they need to medicate, they can conveniently eat the edible, which is inconspicuous. Whereas smoking medical marijuana in public can cause discrimination and/or arrest.
All Arizona dispensaries have the right to apply for and open an infusion kitchen license, thus allowing them to create edibles legally. In time, most, if not all dispensaries will have infused kitchens producing medical marijuana edibles for medical marijuana patients.
