ASPEN — Pitkin County’s first facility approved to produce pot edibles will make marijuana buffalo jerky.
The Aspen Times reports commissioners granted a one-year license to High Mountain Taxi owner Todd Gardner, who plans to make Cannabis Queen Jerky from dried buffalo meat infused with cannabis oil.
Each piece of jerky will carry a THC brand stamp, one of the recommendations voiced during an April meeting.
Gardner had asked for a continuance during the meeting to address concerns.
The license can be pulled if complaints arise and may not be renewed after a year. A marijuana safety group will make a recommendation on a possible countywide ban.
Officials said they appreciated that the facility would not produce the pot-infused candy, popcorn or gum featured in an application they denied in March.
