Edible Arkansas: alternatives for medical marijuana patients averse to smoking



Arkansas’s medical marijuana patients aren’t just blowing smoke: Many are using the wide variety of edible products created by the state’s cultivators and made available at the state’s 31 open dispensaries. From gummies to chocolates to hard candies, edible products provide an alternative for patients who don’t want to smoke.

While dispensaries say marijuana flower is still the product in highest demand, one dispensary reports edibles account for as much as 15% of sales. Another dispensary says edibles are about 10% of overall sales and gummies account for three-quarters of those sales.
