Las Vegas dispensary sees rush for cannabis butter, other ingredients for ‘baked’ Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, some people rushed to stores to pick up cannabis infused ingredients to enjoy their traditional meal in a different way.

“Always ask your guests if they’re Ok with the ingestion,” said David Rivera, store manager of Essence Las Vegas.

“You should never give someone a false high,” added Rivera.

Rivera says cannabis-infused ingredients such as olive oil and butter have been in high demand.

The butter has been the hottest seller and is used in nearly every bit of the traditional holiday menu, according to Rivera.

“Instead of using the full serving of regular butter, you would use half of your regular butter and then use the rest with the infused butter,” said Rivera.

Rivera says there are endless ways to incorporate cannabis into the big day from basting the turkey to serving up garlic mashed potatoes and even pastries.
