Columbia Care Inc. is collaborating with ButACake, a minority-owned baked goods and infused edibles company. 

The initial launch includes Peanut Butter & Jelly brownies, as well as ChocoChunk and Oatmeal Raisin cookies, at all three Columbia Care Delaware locations in Wilmington, Smyrna and Rehoboth Beach. The relationship will expand to additional markets, pending regulatory approvals.

“This is an amazing opportunity to bring a unique product to our patients, as we know that edibles are becoming a more popular way to consume cannabis discreetly, giving our patients more control around dosing, and as an alternative to smoking,” said Volley Hayhurst, VP operations, Columbia Care. “Our goal is to provide these options to our patients who have a wide variety of needs and preferences. We know that our collaboration with ButACake will be wildly popular with our patients, especially because Matha Figaro and her team at ButACake bake the most delicious cookies with the most unique flavors. We can’t wait to see this partnership grow.”

ButACake was founded in 2015 by CEO Matha Figaro, a trained pastry chef. Originally a non-infused line of baked goods sold at farmers’ markets in New Jersey, ButACake is now an emerging cannabis edibles brand through its collaboration with Columbia Care. Figaro is also CEO of CannPowerment, which is a minority women-owned cannabis product manufacturer in New Jersey.

“It’s been our dream to get ButACake on shelves in dispensaries across the country in order to bring relief to patients who need it,” Figaro said. “We’re thrilled to work with Columbia Care to make that dream a reality, especially in time for the 4/20 holiday. It’s an exciting time to be in the industry and help normalize and celebrate the benefits of cannabis for patients in Delaware, and we can’t wait to see this relationship continue to develop and expand.”

ButACake will bake the brownies and cookies on-site at Columbia Care’s Delaware production facility and infuse the products using Columbia Care’s cannabis oil.
