Eager recreational weed consumers can’t get enough edibles

A one-month supply of marijuana edibles, gone in the first three days of January — that’s what the area’s largest supplier is saying about the incredible demand for the product since recreational sales were legalized in Colorado on Jan. 1.

“We are working hard,” said Joe Hodas, chief marketing officer for Dixie Elixirs and Edibles. “We like to call ourselves the future of cannabis.”

There is so much demand for edibles right now, they limit customers to two edible products a day at recreational pot shops like LoDo Wellness at 16th St. and Wazee in downtown Denver.

Dixie is building out a new 30,000 square foot warehouse and manufacturing facility to help meet significantly greater demand than expected. It should be fully operational this spring according to the company.
