MONCTON – Up to 60,000 milk- and dark-chocolate truffles infused with cannabis are produced by Organigram’s new multi-million automated manufacturing line every eight hours. The first packages of these truffles are being shipped to retailers this week.
The truffles, branded ‘Edison Bytes’, are Organigram’s first edibles to go to market. They’re round chocolate bites, filled with a creamy chocolate centre infused with THC, the psychoactive substance in cannabis.
“[Chocolate is] what we’ve kind of committed to as our major play within the space,” said Ray Gracewood, SVP of marketing and communications, noting that around 40 percent of the edibles market in most regulated states are dominated by chocolate.
