One of the more interesting sales phenomena since the advent of Colorado’s legal recreational pot market is the popularity of infused food and products delivering THC and the other 65 cannabinoids in marijuana orally.
Products containing cannabinoids may seem like novelty items for recreational users. Medicinal users, however, have long used orally ingested forms of the drug to help further refine the intended impact and delivery efficacy.
After the January 1 legalization in Colorado, many stores that stocked the same reported invoking strict rationing to no more than two products a day per customer. Products flew off shelves so fast that vendors reportedly feared more than a month’s inventory would sell out in the first week of legal recreational sales.
