DENVER -- The cannabis industry is moving at ‘light-speed’ these days, with new products and treatments coming almost daily. The new product this week: Quigley’s Shots.

“This product has no calories, no fat and is gluten free,” said inventor Tony Alfiere.

“I developed this cannabis infused drink to help a friend who was suffering a brain tumor. She wanted to be treated with cannabis, but didn’t like the uncertainty of edibles—you never know how long it will take them to take effect—so these quick shots are just what the doctor ordered.”

The products are just arriving at marijuana stores. The 10mg dose sells for $6, the 50mg will retail for $15. So far, the product is in shops in the mountains, just in time for holiday skiers.
