Infused MMJ products to go on sale in New Jersey for first time

A New Jersey medical marijuana dispensary has for the first time received state permission to produce and sell cannabis products other than raw flower.

Compassionate Sciences Alternative Treatment Center, in Bellmawr, got word from the New Jersey Health Department on Friday that it will be allowed to manufacture and market infused lotion and lozenges. The lotion should be ready within a week, according to Philly.com, and the lozenges in about three weeks.

Precision Extraction SolutionsThe dispensary didn’t reveal any details about its new product line, and the news site could not reach company executives for comment.

The news of the health department’s approval is significant, given that New Jersey remains one of the most restrictive MMJ markets. Cannabis oils, for example, remain banned, despite intense lobbying from parents of ill children.

Compassionate Sciences also submitted an application to produce MMJ oils. That application is still pending.

New Jersey’s 2010 MMJ law specifically allows cannabis businesses to only produce and sell “raw cannabis, lozenges, and topicals,” Philly.com reported. Edibles were added in 2013, but are only available to children as an alternative to smoking MMJ.
