Since the country implemented laws allowing the use of recreational cannabis there has been a burst of new companies that have brought about their own specialty infused products to accommodate the growing market. Among the many there is one that has quickly gained immense recognition in this rapidly growing industry.
Dixie Brand Elixirs and Edibles was founded in Colorado on the basis of providing the state with quality, consistent, and enjoyable products that meet the strictest in quality control, safety, and regulatory standards. Founded in 2010 – it stands as one of the oldest MIP licenses (Marijuana Infused Product) in the state. Originally starting with the medical market it has greatly expanded to accommodate the recreational market and has even expanded to accommodate additional cannabis states such as California, Oregon, Arizona, and Nevada.
We spoke with the makers of Dixie Brands to find out what separates there products from conventional edibles.
“In addition to the variety of over 30 products, we also dedicate a considerable amount of time and effort into testing our products for safety and consistency. We also pioneered the process of triple-lab testing each and every one of our products in the raw plant, oil, and final stages of production for contaminants and potency. This ensures that every product produced is of the utmost quality.”
