People have been sipping different types of wine for thousands of years. Red, white, Rosé, and even blue are being enjoyed by the multitudes. But have you ever heard of green? Green wine aka Cannabis Wine has probably been around since the creation of weed and wine. Who knew?

What is it?

This so-called Canna Vine is a high-end marijuana product that combines organically grown marijuana and farmed grapes.

Due to the lower fermentation temperatures, you still feel the therapeutic effects of marijuana without the high levels of THC, the primary psychoactive compound found in the drug.

The result is a mellow, physical “body high” rather than a more disorienting mental high (which is unique among common ingestible forms of marijuana).

How is it made?

The creators are experimenting with two new weed types, sativa and indica, to find an equal balance of “uplifting and relaxing sensations."

To start the process, about a pound of cured marijuana is wrapped in cheesecloth and added to a wine barrel, where it will ferment, then repose, for a year or more.

The final product is described as "subtle with 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. It really is the best of both worlds; you get delicious wines with medicinal benefits.” 

What can we expect next?

As of now, Canna Vine is only available and legal in California with a medical marijuana license. However, even if you are in California and have a marijuana license, you’ll also need to dish out $120 to $400 dollars for half a bottle.

Currently Molyneux and Lindquist, the founders, are continuing to work on their products. Lindquist states that “Cannabis wine has been so effective as a stress reliever, as a mood elevator, and as a medicine. I have no idea what the market will be like for it, but whatever I make I want to be safe, made from pure ingredients and, hopefully, delicious.”
