It was last week that Ohio residents were able to purchase marijuana edibles for the first time.
Limited quantities of marijuana-infused gummy candy was at Ohio medical marijuana dispensary shelves and they came with a hefty price tag. $80 for 11 gummies!
Each gummy contains 10 mg of THC.
Prices are expected to remain high as the state’s medical marijuana program ramps up.
It was in 2016 that Ohio passed its medical marijuana law but any product that looks attractive to children isn’t allowed. The Gummies have THC imprinted on them for this reason and edible products also contain a warning label.
The state of Ohio has sold $5.8 million of cannabis from the first day of sales Jan. 16 through May 5, according to the Ohio Department of Commerce and through April, 31,075 patients have registered for Ohio’s program.
