The posting grabbed the attention of Los Angeles’ Times food writer Jenn Harris, who writes:

The jerky is made by a Santa Cruz-based company called Badfish Extracts. The company is currently having it’s jerky tested by Santa Cruz Labs, a third party testing facility for the medical cannabis industry. The jerky is currently undergoing cannabinoid tests to see how potent the jerky is, figure out exactly what it’s made of and determine which ailments it will best help.
