A Really Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and one cannabis company claims to have created a product that will make awkward family conversations less painful - cannabis-infused turkey gravy.  

Yes, you read that right - cannabis-infused turkey gravy.  

Just when you perhaps thought the industry could not get more creative, along comes Kiva Confections' headline-grabbing "limited-edition dish."  According to one report, "The company says it utilizes cutting-edge technology that allows the cannabinoids [in the gravy] to take effect in as little as two to 15 minutes, much faster than typical edibles."  The company is also planning to roll out "cannabis-infused hot cocoa that will be infused with the same fast-acting technology."  

Of course, with any new product comes additional risk. Therefore, as any cannabis company brings a new product(s) to market, it should assess and understand its risk and potential liability and make sure it procures and maintains all necessary insurance coverage -- particularly, product liability insurance.

In the meantime, enjoy your mashed potatoes with gravy this year.

Happy Thanksgiving!
