A new product is hitting store shelves in the states where medical marijuana is legal. "Melting Pot" candles. Formed in the shape of the United States, the candles are made from a mixture of beeswax and potent medical marijuana.
The candles are the brainchild of Potpend Home Products and have been approved for use by the FDA, DEA, FDIC and NATO. Said company spokesperson, Patrick Pending, "we realized when medical marijuana became legal in many states, there would be some people who would not be able to take it the traditional way, i.e. by smoking a pipe or a marijuana cigarette, so we decided to do something about it.
Our candles are produced in such a way as to incorporate just the right amount of marijuana within the beeswax allowing for a consistent dispersal of medicament in a small area. This, along with the patented wider wick, allows the patient(s) to gather around it and gain the full benefits just by normally breathing in the smoke."
Mr. Pending claims that he and his colleagues have spent many, many man hours testing out the candles and can attest to their potency and effectiveness. "Not only do the candles help to alleviate the symptoms of so many medical maladies, but they also lend a calming ambiance to any room," said Pending.
Melting Pot candles will be sold alongside traditional medical marijuana in marijuana dispensaries, and the company hopes someday soon to be able to sell them at local Wal-Mart and Target stores. In addition, the group is looking into making smaller taper-type rainbow drip candles like the ones made popular in the 60's. "After all," said Pending, "sometimes it takes more than just a medicated candle to make someone well."
