The first full-service cannabis kitchen will open in Arizona on Oct. 5, KSAZ reported.
The breakfasts, lunches and dinners will be prepared by chef Carylann Principal, a cancer survivor, and her five-member staff, according to KSAZ. Restaurant officials said there would also be plenty of snacks available.
"We saw a large unmet need from patients who were regularly visiting our dispensary; they were looking to access fresh and healthy cannabis-infused foods," Eivan Shahara, CEO of The Mint Dispensary, told KSAZ. "We know the right kinds of healthy foods can help people to battle a variety of illnesses, from cancer to epilepsy to Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease. We're using our knowledge about food and nutrition to help patients in their search for fresh, healthy snacks and infused meals.”
The dispensary will serve the cannabis-laden food daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., KNXV reported. In mid-November The Mint Dispensary will offer catering services for birthdays, weddings and funerals. Home delivery will be offered during the holiday season, the television station reported. Everyone in these larger caterings would need to present a medical cannabis card.
