Mass. Company Weeds Out Competition, Bakes 850-Pound Pot Brownie

The edible, containing 20,000 mg of THC, will be sent to a Middleborough dispensary and sold to a medical marijuana patient

A massive pot brownie made by Massachusetts cannabis company MariMed.

A Massachusetts cannabis company is celebrating National Brownie Day on Wednesday with what it believes is the "largest THC-infused brownie ever made."

MariMed Inc. said the massive confection is 3-feet-by-3-feet square and 15 inches tall, weighs 850 pounds, and contains 20,000 mg of THC.

The brownie was also made to celebrate the launch of the company's new line of cannabis-infused edibles, called Bubby's Baked, according to a statement from the Norwood-based company that also has facilities in several other states.

Connecticut is taking an important step toward legalizing recreational marijuana. This week, a bill passed the state Senate that would allow for recreational cannabis starting in 2022. The bill now heads to the House. So while Connecticut debates the legalization of recreational marijuana, where does the rest of New England stand?

What happens to the brownie now? Company spokesperson Howard Schacter said it will be sent to its Middleborough dispensary and ultimately sold to a medical marijuana patient. As to what the customer plans to do with it, Schacter couldn't say.

The purchase price is still being determined, he said.
