Medical marijuana has created an entire industry dedicated to giving patients the ability to consume THC in a way that works best for them if they choose not to smoke; such as edibles, tinctures, creams, or vaporizers. According to this recent article in Maxim, 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.
Marijuana infused wine is a relatively new commercial offering, but singer Melissa Etheridge already has her own line of Molyneux’s cannabis wine called “Know Label.” She described her affinity for the wine;
“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.”
What makes this cannabis wine special is that it’s illegal to infuse alcoholic beverages with marijuana almost everywhere in the U.S. outside of California, and even now it’s only legal in California for residents with a medical marijuana license.
When this wine debuts, it will cost around $140 per bottle.
