Food trucks have been gaining popularity in cities across the country for a few years now. But only one food truck is offering marijuana-infused foods, or edibles.
MagicalButter unveiled the country’s first food truck with marijuana edibles at the 2014 Cannabis Cup in Denver. The Seattle-based company is already selling a machine of the same name that extracts substances from herbs for use in foods.
Peanut butter and jelly, grilled cheese and pulled pork sandwiches, along with tomato soup are a few items on the menu. Each dish contains oil, butter or cheese infused with THC (the psychoactive substance in marijuana).
“[The food truck] gives a good platform to educate people about how to eat with cannabis, finding out what works, what might not work,” said Garyn Angel, CEO of Magical Butter. “It’s a non-threatening way for people to discover if it helps them at all.”
Marijuana food trucks are currently only legal to operate in Colorado and Washington, where marijuana is legal for adult recreational use.
