Marijuana-infused edibles ready to flood Michigan market


Companies are ramping up production of marijuana-infused edibles to fuel both the medical marijuana market and the upcoming recreational pot business.

In a growing number of spic-and-span kitchens across Michigan, blueberries and espresso beans are being coated in chocolate, brightly colored gummies are being poured into molds and marshmallows, cherries and crushed cookies are being added to chocolate bars.

But these are not quite the Willy Wonka factories of childhood dreams.

In addition to the sweet ingredients, oils extracted from the cannabis plant also are being infused into these products, which are becoming a staple of medical marijuana dispensaries and will be a core sales item when the adult recreational market starts selling legal weed early next year.
