Marijuana-Infused Wine Is Real, But If You Want Some There’s a Catch
This might be worth the west coast trip.
Creating a brand is developing a product that can not be duplicated. Vino OG aka It's It is exclusive to creation of Mary Jane Wines. Now off to day two of the Cannabis Business Summit in Oakland. #original #maryjanewines #vinoog #cannabis #merryjane #hempxxx #patientsfirst #cannabisnowmagazine #fogcitycollective #growyourown #cannabiscommunity #gateway #marijuana #wine #winemaking #infusedwine #dopemagazine #cannabisculture #riseandgrind #cannabisbusinesssumit
People have been mixing weed and booze for… let’s be honest, for as long as both have been available.
A pair of marijuana pioneers are making it easier than ever to feel the relaxing effects of alcohol and pot together. Verdad Wines owner Louisa Sawyer Lindquist and marijuana dispensary owner Lisa Molyneux have created a weed-infused wine variety called “Canna Vine” which will soon be commercially available.
Like a lot of cannabis-related news, this comes with a caveat: It’s only legal in California for residents with medical marijuana license. It’s illegal to infuse alcoholic beverages with marijuana almost everywhere in the U.S.—even in states like Colorado and Washington, where recreational use of marijuana is otherwise allowed.
Rock singer and cancer survivor Melissa Etheridge—who has her own line of Molyneux’s cannabis wine called “Know Label”— spoke with the LA Times about the benefits of this sweet green vino:
“I couldn’t smoke or use a vaporizer — and I was never really an edibles eater; I didn’t want to be ‘out of it.’” Molyneux’s tincture seemed to solve some of these issues. “It lands in a really beautiful place.”
So the one and only @melissa_etheridge and her beautiful wife Linda stopped by tonight to bring me a bottle of their new Grenache fermented with cannabis… For now, you will need to be card carrying, incredibly fortunate human to get your paws on this life changing wine, but hopefully in the near future we can all be so lucky! Thank you ladies… May we collaborate soon! 😘 #cannabiswine
If you happen to be a California resident with a license that permits using medicinal marijuana, all you need is $140 to get your hands on what has to be one of the best medicines ever invented.
