The Guild & Psycho Donuts Partner to Create World’s First Cannabis Terpene-Infused Donuts for 420

San Jose medical marijuana dispensary to offer patients free donuts infused with cannabis-derived terpenes at store celebration.

San Jose, CA, April 20, 2017 --( The Guild SJ, one of San Jose’s 16 licensed dispensaries, is partnering with Psycho Donuts, an iconic “donut asylum” for gourmet donuts, to create the world’s first cannabis-derived, terpene-infused donuts for 420. The event will take place on Thursday, April 20 between 4pm and 7pm at The Guild San Jose dispensary (2943 Daylight Way, San Jose) and will feature a pop-up shop where Psycho Donuts’ staff will prepare the groundbreaking infusions in front of patients.

Each medical marijuana patient at the event will receive a free gourmet donut, and free Guild merchandise and medical marijuana samples. The donuts will contain a custom-designed Guild stenciled print made of powdered sugar that will be dusted atop frosting infused with cannabis-derived terpenes provided by Guild Extracts. The donut cake and flavoring will be specially formulated to pair with the terpene profiles derived from cannabis strains, including Guild OG, Sour Diesel, Skywalker OG and Jack Herer.

Terpenes are the natural aromatic compounds found in the cannabis flower that give marijuana its distinctive smell and flavor. Studies show that the combination of terpenes and cannabinoids (like THC and CBD) create an “entourage effect” that yields the greatest medicinal value in marijuana. Terpenes are 100% safe and non-psychoactive compounds, which are also found in essential oils, wine and perfume. Guild Extracts, a sister brand to The Guild San Jose, makes and uses only pure cannabis-derived terpenes in their award-winning selection of cannabis extracts.

The event will be held in The Guild’s new retail showroom that is scheduled to open this summer. Members of The Guild management team will be showcasing design renderings and unveiling plans for the grand opening during the Psycho Donuts demonstration.
