High on Pie: Dispensary Creates Cheese Pizza Laced with Weed

This 6” cheese pie is infused with 125 milligrams of THC, but it’s only for medicinal purposes.




Several former restaurant veterans worked together to create this weed-infused cheese pizza offered by Ermont in Quincy, Massachusetts.

 

If smoking weed gives you the munchies, what happens when you munch on a pizza infused with weed? Some folks in Quincy, Massachusetts, are finding out, thanks to a medical-marijuana dispensary that has developed its own THC-laced cheese pizzas.

As Boston Magazine reports, Ermont, which specializes in edibles for people with qualifying health issues, has developed a 6” cheese pie in collaboration with well-known chefs. The pie is infused with 125 milligrams of THC, the chemical in marijuana that creates a psychoactive high and also relieves pain and nausea in cancer patients.

“While stoners across the state are likely salivating at the thought of a greasy, delicious personal pizza that will get you high, the product was actually developed for medical marijuana patients looking for a discreet alternative to smoking or vaping,” Boston Magazine says.

In fact, stoners are pretty much out of luck, since Ermont sells the pies only to patients or caregivers with certified cards from the Department of Health. Ermont doesn’t deliver, and at $38 apiece, the pies aren’t exactly a cheap high.

Ermont dispenses other THC-laden foods, including chocolate bars, cookies, mac and cheese, muffins, even lemonade, hot sauce and olive oil. The pizza recipe was developed by three former restaurant veterans, including Ermont’s operations manager, Seth Yaffe; cannabinoid infusion consultant Adam Gendreau; and chef Keith Brooks, formerly of Flour Bakery.

The pizzas are made in the South Shore style, with a thin crust and cheese spread to the edge. In an interview with Time magazine, Yaffe described the pie as “herby, with gooey, crispy cheese.” Brooks, meanwhile, told Boston Magazine that the pizza “was a delight to make, and it’s delicious.”

“We are pleased to offer a new, more appetizing way for our patients to alleviate pain and discomfort,” Ermont CEO and founder Jack Hudson said in a press release. “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.”
