Want to relax during the hottest month of the year? How about trying Emack & Bolio’s new cannabis-infused ice cream? Thanks to a partnership with multi-state operator MariMed Inc, the iconic Boston ice cream brand has just released a new line of THC dairy and vegan flavors.
The first two flavors, Cup O’ Coffee Chip and Chocolate Sunny Days, debuted this week at MariMed’s Panacea Wellness dispensary in Middleborough, Mass., with more flavors and retail locations to be announced in the coming months.
“We pushed ourselves to make our cannabis-infused ice cream as delicious as the better-flavored, non-infused products found at local specialty ice cream shops,” said MariMed COO Tim Shaw , in a statement. “Thanks to Emack. The ice cream wizards at & Bolio and our own team of rock stars, this new ice cream exceeds that high quality benchmark. It’s out of this world delicious.”
Bob Rook, CEO of Emack & Bolio, echoed Shaw’s enthusiasm.
“Working on this collaborative project to perfect our vegan and dairy ice creams with cannabis has been a lot of fun,” he said, also in a public statement. “Many tests and, of course, tasting. Finally, a clean ingredient, a product with great flavor that is cold. I am very pleased that our fans have now tried this outstanding product.”
The ice creams contain 20 mg of THC per 4 oz container. The delicious confection is an extension of MariMed’s popular Betty’s Eddies infused fruit brand.
Emack & Bolio’s was founded in 1975 by Boston music attorney Bob Rook as a place for his rock star customers to satisfy their midnight cravings after their late night gigs. Among the bands and artists Rook worked with at that time were Aerosmith, Boston, U2, James Brown and The Cars.
Based in Massachusetts, cannabis company MariMed is known for its pot brownies.
