Weed edible sales increased 50 percent in March

Anxious times can call for palliative care. You know, like weed snacks? Weed edible sales increased 50 percent in March, with more than a dozen states declaring cannabis stores and medical marijuana dispensaries essential businesses. The industry has seen an influx of first-time customers as more people grow skeptical of inhaled products—partly spurred by studies of vaping and respiratory risks associated with Covid-19, The New York Times reports. New consumers working from home have opted to enjoy edible cannabis which, in the close quarters of quarantine living with roommates or family, can be more discreet. The cost of edibles range anywhere from $18-$20 for a bag of 10 gummies.
