This Cannabis-Infused Meal Box Wants to Be the New Blue Apron
Meal-kit delivery services have become a multibillion-dollar industry, and with the popular service Blue Apron cashing in a cool $800 million just last year, other industries are looking at ways to get in on the action. With fresh, pre-measured ingredients right at your fingertips, traditional meal kits advertise themselves as being both healthy and waste-conscious.
It was only a matter of time for canna-chefs to get in on this sustainable practice, and one ambitious new startup is taking the concept a step further by developing cannabis-infused meal-kit delivery options.
Starting August 15th, The Baking Supply Co. is launching a 40-day campaign to bring its simply-made, cannabis-infused meal boxes to the cannabis market through the crowdfunding site Indiegogo. This concept can be especially beneficial to medical patients who are tired of sugary candies and sweet chocolates, and instead want nutritionally-dense meals that won’t sacrifice the therapeutic effects of CBD or THC.
Keep in mind that the meals don’t come pre-infused—customers have to provide the cannabis. But the healthy edibles concept does include “digital herbal butter guides” for proper infusion and dosing.
The Indiegogo campaign offers various perks to donors, beginning with a custom pin designed by artist Adam J. Kurtz and stretching all the way up to a private infused three-course dinner for six lucky participants. As of this writing, the campaign has raised about 18% of its $22,000 goal.
