Cannabis Creamery, the marijuana-infused edible company operated by a member of the family that owns Richmond-based Lappert’s Ice Cream, won the award last weekend for best dessert at the 2015 HempCon Cup in San Francisco.

Folks apparently can’t get enough of Cannabis Creamery’s Mint Chip ice cream, which took first place at the competition, topping second-place finisher Peppermint Phatty by Sweet Temptations.

Isaac Lappert, vice president of Lappert’s Corporate and a Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef, separately operates the nonprofit Cannabis Creamery. His “Mint Chip” ice cream also won best dessert edible at the HempCon Kush Cup in San Bernardino last year.

The creation of Cannabis Creamery was inspired years ago when the Lapperts were asked by the Grateful Dead to make a “special flavor” of ice cream for a big party, according to the Cannabis Creamery Facebook page.

Here’s an interview with Isaac Lappert filmed in February:
