Cannabis Food and Beverage Manufacturer License Lottery Opens in CT
I've been cooking my whole life, and I admit, I suck at baking. I'm horrible at making desserts, cookies, brownies and anything involving measuring the correct amount of sugar and flour. Therefore, I've never made marijuana-infused brownies or cookies.
There are quite a few brave bakers/chefs/bartenders out there who aren't afraid of using the powerful intoxicant as an ingredient in food products and drinks and now is your time to shine here in the state of Connecticut. The Department of Consumer Protection has just announced that they are now accepting lottery applications for Cannabis-Infused Food and Beverage Manufacturer licenses. Connecticut also just recently started accepting applications for cannabis delivery licenses.
I've tried a few cannabis-infused products over the years, you know, the friend of a friend who has a lot of weed and brings over a tray of special "Baked Goods" to an Xmas party? But the cannabis-infused edibles that are sold out of dispensaries now are no joke. In the hands of a professional who knows how to properly infuse cannabis into food, candy and beverage products, it's a very convenient way to consume herb without the smoke or smell associated with lighting up the flower.
If you're Connecticut's Maestro of Marijuana, the Grand Poobah of Resin-reduction, now is the time to get your application into the lottery. It's not easy, there are many hoops to jump through and so many regulations it'll make your head spin like your KitchenAid stand mixer on 8. But it's your chance.
