It is probably safe to assume that at some point in the history of time, someone high on marijuana sank their teeth into a slice of pizza and wondered what it would be like to combine the two.
Now, a Massachusetts medical marijuana dispensary has created such a culinary delight for patients who don't want to smoke their weed or eat it in the form of sweets or other edibles.

Quincy-based Ermont Inc. has been selling cannabis-infused pizza for about three weeks to rave reviews.
A Quincy, Massachusetts, dispensary has a new spin on marijuana-infused edibles: a pub-style cheese pizza.
Ermont, Inc., a non-profit medical marijuana dispensary that specializes in edibles, is now cooking up six-inch personal pizza pies infused with a 125mg dose of THC distillate.
Ermont, a Quincy-based medical marijuana operation, is adding a new product to its dispensary shelves this week: bottled cold brew coffee infused with 25 milligrams of THC, the cannabinoid, or chemical, that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties.
“For a long time I’ve been an avid cold brew coffee drinker myself,” says Seth Yaffe, Ermont’s operations manager. "I always really thought that it’d be a great way for patients to wake up in the morning and be able to take their medication by doing something that they normally would, like drinking a cup of coffee."

On a chilly Wednesday in Quincy, the line was out the door, stretching into the parking lot of the industrial park. After being open for just two hours, Ermont had already sold $10,000 worth of products. Patients were lining up to buy pungent buds, as well as cannabis-infused olive oil, peanut butter and honey. Soon the dispensary will offer a deodorant that can get you high.
Today Ermont uses just about half of its retrofitted warehouse. But demand is so strong, the company expects it will soon take over the rest of the space to grow and process more plants.
