Cannabis-Infused Wine Is A Thing!

Drinking wine and getting stoned are definitely two of my all-time favorite pastimes, especially when enjoyed simultaneously.

 

 

Now, a company brings you the benefits of cannabis in a bottle of wine. Meet Canna Vine!

 

 

Canna Vine is a commercially produced cannabis wine made by Californian winemakers. Canna Vine is the brainchild of Lisa Molyneux, owner of a Santa Cruz dispensary during a 2010 trip to Yosemite. During the trip she was introduced its medical benefits by Louisa Sawyer Lindquist who owns Verdad Wines in Santa Maria. Molyneux is a cancer survivor who eventually grew her own cannabis and established a shop, called Greenway, with the purpose of helping other cancer survivors.

 

 

The result of their trip was Canna Vine, an upscale cannabis product made from organic cannabis combined with biodynamically grown grapes manufactured by Opus One. There are actually already several celebrity advocates of the wine, including Melissa Etheridge and Chelsea Handler. Etheridge even has a cannabis-infused wine business of her own called No Label, and has spoken openly about the medical benefits of this wine. “There’s a little flush after the first sip, but then the effect is really cheery, and at the end of the night you sleep really well,” she said.

 

CANNAWINE

 

Canna Vine costs between $120 to $400 for half a bottle. The green wine is only currently available in California and isn’t exactly available for just anyone to get. In order to buy Canna Vine, you’ll need an MMJ license. Even then, for most states its still illegal to infuse booze with cannabis.  Canna Vine doesn’t contain any THC though, it uses CBD hemp oil from organic cannabis plants. Each bottle has 50mg of CBD, the right amount to give you a relaxing, stress-relieving experience. There’s also 14% of alcohol, so you can be sure you’ll still get a kick with this wine. One of the most unique properties of this wine is its aroma; the manufacturers recommend allowing the wine to breathe for a few minutes after you open the bottle. Since it contains a bit of hemp oil, the aroma of cannabis is identifiable. Canna Vine is best served cold, so put it in a chiller or in a cool basement.

 

 

Molyneux’s innovative cannabis products have garnered attention from the press as well as patients, and have also been recognized through awards from High Times. Her products include concentrates, edibles, balms, and capsules. The cannabis wine was initially developed just for personal use although it quickly became a favorite among elite Californian consumers both for medical as well as recreational benefits. Molyneux didn’t like both the taste and effect of grain alcohol so this is what motivated her to create a wine tincture for the market.

 

WINE STRAINS

 

Molyneux grows around 20 cannabis strains herself in the backyard of her home for use in the development and manufacture of Greenway’s products. She only uses sustainable and organic growing methods and carefully pairs hybrid strains with certain varietals. She has several years of experience making her own cannabis wine although because it’s expensive, she can only test and experiment with batches a barrel at a time.

 

WEED AND WINE PAIRINGS


Wine and Weed Pairings

 

 

Canna Vine is certainly a great concept, but not everyone has $120 to drop on a bottle of wine. You’d be better off with a blunt and a $10 bottle of wine. Try these wine and weed pairings out and let us know what you think:

 

 

  • Blueberry Skunk and a medium red: Merlots and similar wines paired with berry flavored weeds can complement each other’s delicious flavors. Expect a warm yet spicy contrast that tastes similar to an herby or minty flavor.
  • Blackberry Kush and a light red: Blackberry Kush is the ideal complementing partner for a light and refreshing red wine, which are typically sweet with fruity, floral flavors. Blackberry Kush has a strong pungent aroma that comes with a citrusy aftertaste which matches the sweet taste of the wine without getting too overwhelming.
  • Fruity Pebbles and a sweet white: Fruity Pebbles is one of the most delicious aromatic strains around with a mouthwatering berry taste. Fruity and sweet whites, such as dessert white wines, go great together with this strain.
