Mobile trailer for selling CBD edibles in the Pittsburgh area

0

A new moving trailer hopes to bring CBD edibles — cookies, brownies and pastries infused with THC-free products — to shoppers all over Pittsburgh later this summer.

Moodedibles is a company that produces small-batch edibles infused with CBD, Delta 8, and other minor cannabinoids. All edibles contain below the legal limit of THC, the component of the marijuana plant that makes people feel high, and are legal for sale outside of dispensaries.

Owner Holly Teegarden says her edibles aren’t meant to get people high, but to help lift people’s moods. Some treats are infused with CBD and turmeric to provide anti-inflammatory help, and others include lavender, rosemary, and a minor cannabinoid called CBN that can act as a sleep aid.

“Anyone can take a bite of this edible and have the best sleep of their life,” Teegarden said. “They can get the same kind of help you could get from taking a few pills.”

Moodedibles bakes muffins, brownies and other edibles in a Sewickley kitchen. Teegarden said the plan is to sell these infused treats in a traveling trailer throughout the Pittsburgh area. She said she hopes the trailer will be released in June, starting with stops at Station Square.

She said the benefits of consuming edibles come from terpenes, which can alter people’s moods. Terpenes are natural chemical compounds found in plants. Teegarden said hemp plants and cannabis plants have terpenes, and even plants like lavender provide terpenes, and all offer different mood effects.

“Terpenes are like the special sauce in edibles,” Teegarden said.

Teegarden also has a CBD shop moodporium at Sewickley. She said that all Moodedibles products undergo third-party testing to ensure they are composed of the products they advertise.

Medical marijuana edibles are still illegal to produce and sell commercially in Pennsylvania, but THC-free edibles are permitted. Teegarden said the edible trend is really hitting the market right now, and she wants Moodedibles to be part of delivering those products to the Pittsburghers.

She expects Moodedibles to eventually visit festivals and other food truck gatherings in Allegheny County. She said the trailer will be at the Pittsburgh Cannabis Festival in August.

“My goal is to go to every neighborhood in Pittsburgh, just so people can taste our edibles,” Teegarden said. “There’s more to this industry than just getting high, and these products have medicinal properties.”
