MariMed, Inc. has collaborated with Boston ice cream brand Emack & Bolio’s to develop and market cannabis-infused vegan and dairy ice cream.
The ice cream is an extension of MariMed’s Betty’s Eddies infused fruit chews brand and shares the brand’s commitment to being hand-crafted and using all-natural ingredients.
The ice cream contains MariMed’s formulations of full-spectrum cannabis oil, with natural cannabinoids and terpenes. Two vegan flavors, Cup O’ Coffee Chip and Chocolate Sunny Days, debuted at MariMed’s Panacea Wellness dispensary in Middleborough, MA, this week. Additional flavors and wider availability are expected in the coming months.
“We pushed ourselves to make our infused cannabis ice cream as delicious as the best-tasting, non-infused products found in local specialty ice cream stores,” said MariMed Chief Operating Officer Tim Shaw. “With thanks to the Emack & Bolio’s ice cream magicians and our own rock star team, this new ice cream exceeds that high quality benchmark. It’s out-of-this-world delicious.”
Emack & Bolio’s was founded in 1975 by Boston music attorney Bob Rook as a place for his rockstar clients to satisfy their midnight munchies after their late-night gigs. Aerosmith, Boston, U2, James Brown and The Cars were some of the groups with which Rook worked. Emack & Bolio’s has evolved into a cult favorite in its specialty ice cream stores in the United States and in stores around the world.
“Working on this collaborative project of perfecting our vegan and dairy ice creams with cannabis has been so much fun,” Rook said. “Lots of testing and of course tasting. Finally, a clean ingredient, great tasting product that’s chill. I am very happy for our fans to now try this exceptional product.”
