Thanksgiving is right around the corner and a new staple on the family dinner table this year may be cannabis infused turkey gravy.
For this year, Kiva Confections has said the cannabis-infused turkey gravy is a limited-edition item.
“This cheeky take a normally mundane holiday staple features a groundbreaking, fast-acting technology that allows for faster THC absorption,” Kiva said in a press release.
“Awkward family dinner conversation? In just under 15 minutes you’ll start feeling the effects, so you can sit back, relax, and let the holiday cheer wash over you.”
The company’s single-serve gravy is infused with 10 mg of THC, and is made with “cutting-edge technology that bypasses edibles’ normally lengthy trip through the liver, instead absorbing into the soft tissue and stomach.”
“This allows the cannabinoids to take effect in a groundbreaking 2 to 5 minutes. Most other companies who have explored fast-acting technology have employed nanotechnology particles to speed up the process. While the nano molecules used in these edibles are small, they are massive compared to the individually-encapsulated molecules used in this approach. Not only are they isolated from other molecules they might interact with, they are small enough to be absorbed directly into the body’s endocannabinoid receptors – one molecule at a time,” the company explained.
Kiva has said that the gravy offers “one of the fastest-acting and most bioavailable cannabinoids available in edibles today.”
The turkey gravy will launch with a cannabis-infused premium hot cocoa for the holiday season also.
“Fast-acting edibles technology is an exciting industry innovation because it has the potential to change the way people use edibles, breaking down the barriers to entry,” said Kiva’s Co-Founder and CEO Scott Palmer. “What better way to start than with America’s favorite Thanksgiving dressing?”
