Montana's Top 5 Edibles to Try in 2022
Published on 4/25/22
Montana legalized recreational marijuana in November 2020 and sales finally began in many counties across the state on January 1, 2022. The adult-use law also brought a much-desired change to the state's cannabis infrastructure. Up until 2022, the state of Montana implemented vertical integration. This meant that brands such as High Road Edibles were required to license out their recipes and packaging to a single medical dispensary (for High Road Edibles, it's Greenhouse Farmacy). Hence, there were no wholesale purchases or processing between different providers. Before 2022, these vertical integration laws stated that a Montana medical cannabis dispensary had to cultivate or manufacture all the products they sold; so, unlike states such as Colorado and Oregon, you couldn't find your favorite gummies at two different dispensaries.
It will be interesting to see how this changes as emerging brands enter the Montana cannabis market and dispensaries become more comfortable with the new laws and grow into other available products on the market. Because while Montana cannabis laws have changed and vertical integration is no longer implemented, it will take time for the industry to adjust. However, until then, enjoy some of our top 5 edibles to try in Montana from these dispensaries that have been vertically integrated!
