First edible pot sold in Washington stores.
Washington States Liquor Control Board had many major delays in licensing producers (growers), processors & retailers since voters passed it in November of 2012. It’s no surprise that it’s taken until now for them to license the first commercial kitchen under initiative 502 in time for products to hit the shelves.
On August 6, 2014 Top Shelf Cannabis in Bellingham, WA was one of the first stores to have any infused edibles for sale. Item’s like Chex mix, Trail mix, & Carnival Nut (which the store says is a cluster bite of nuts, powdered sugar & pepper.
One of the major concerns for the States Liquor Control Board is over-consumption. We have seen it make headlines in Colorado where people have been taken to the hospital for over-consuming edibles. It’s a completely different process for the human body to digest the Cannabinoids then it is to inhale it. Thresholds are much higher for ingestion, where the inhalation has limitations on the entry into the bloodstream.
