Bakery, Cannabis Dispensary Network, Offer An Alternative To Smoking Medical Marijuana

April 3, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
The Wellness Connection of Maine has partnered with Portland’s Slate’s Bakery to offer edible baked goods containing medical marijuana to patients as an alternative to smoking. Operating with state approval and regulation – Maine first legalized medical marijuana in 1999 – the WCM offers the so-called “medibles”, as well as whole flower cannabis and tinctures, to its 5,000 certified patients at $12 per item. Slate’s Bakery produces peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies along with pumpkin blueberry loaves, each of which contains the equivalent of four to eight doses of marijuana. Patients with painful fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and cancer who ingest cannabis orally, instead of smoking or using a vaporizer, experience symptom relief much longer, up to eight hours.
