Cannabis-Infused Wine? Understand It First!

On the shelves, in a limited number of countries, cannabis-infused Wines offers a new experience of the recreational and therapeutic use of cannabinoids. In this article, you are going to understand what is cannabis-infused wine, small bits of its history and know some of the options the market offers for connoisseurs that want to give it a try.

The discoveries regarding the medical benefits of the use of cannabidiol, or CBD, and other cannabinoids, like THC, raised a generalized interest in cannabis-based products in the past few years and a wide variety of products that incorporate CBD is available now.

We must understand the phenomenon as cannabis-infused wine for our store shelves is a new thing for a while. Producers are just beginning to explore ways of producing and distributing such wine. Unfortunately, federal and state governments and their regulations so far only slow down the speed of development of such a product but do not help in any way. Despite this, we already see many strong companies that produce cannabis-infused wines. We are confident that in the future the number of such companies and the quality of their products will only grow.

Cannabis is the medicine which humanity has the most experience dealing with. Records of marijuana being utilized for therapeutic reasons date back to over four millenniums ago, in China, and other locations of archeological value. Archeologists also reveal the use of wine fortified with cannabis resin to reduce pain during surgery in Ancient China.

Cannabis infusions also enhance the experience of recreational consumers too. Just like the different types of grapes influence the wine’s taste and suitability, the different kinds of strains, essential oils, and tinctures will have an influence on your pleasure while drinking, adding new possibilities and horizons for both wine and cannabis lovers.

Types Of Cannabis-Infused Wine

First, we need to understand the types of cannabis-infused wine.

The main two types are alcoholic and non-alcoholic wines.

  • In alcoholic wines filled with cannabis, alcohol is indeed present. It gives the double effect of alcohol + cannabis on a person. Most often, these wines do not contain a high dose of THC and are prohibited in the United States under current laws.
  • Non-alcoholic cannabis-infused wine first goes through a dealcoholization stage and only then is mixed with CBD and/or THC. We would like to point out that it was often believed that the process of dealcoholization takes away all aromas and flavors from the wine. Now manufacturers claim that with the help of new technologies it is possible to avoid the loss of the real taste and all the notes of the smell of wine.

Also, the wine can differ in the type of filling with CBD and/or THC - tinctures or mixed emulsions.

  • They differ in that the preparation of the infusion requires that the cannabis plants be dipped directly into the wine - for example, as for making tea.
  • Emulsions are oil-based water-soluble solutions that are more smoothly incorporated into other liquids, in our case into wine. Cannabis wines made from emulsion blends are more efficiently absorbed and processed by the body than edible cannabis forms.

We will tell you about different brands of wines, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, which have their own unique stories and production methods.

Remember to always drink and smoke responsibly, now check our top selections of cannabis-infused wine for you to try.
