In California, where a doctor’s note will get you all the legal weed you could ever want, companies are always looking for new products to capitalize on the growing trend of legal marijuana consumption.
So it’s surprising that pot wine, even though it’s been around since the days of ancient China, is just now starting to emerge as a hot product.
While many states have laws on the books that prohibit mixing legal marijuana with alcohol or other drugs for sale, California has no such law, so these winemakers are operating in a weird grey market at the moment.
That hasn’t kept them from acting like completely legit operations, however. One company, the producers of Mary Jane Wines, have been utilizing social media and cannabis-centered business summits to get the word out about their alcohol and weed infused wine.
As you can see, the wine really does take on a strange greenish tint from the infusion. And while the mix could certainly be a dangerous one in terms of knocking consumers off their feet, it’s unlikely that people are going to go TOO wild with the wine, if only because it’s really, really, really expensive. Half-bottles range in price, depending on the winery, from $120-$400. It’s no wonder, at those prices, why so many new entrants are trying to sell the product.
Even folk singer Melissa Etheridge has got a dog in the fight with her wine, No Label. She shares her experience with the wine saying, “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.”
Haha. I’m sure sleep is not a problem after consuming this stuff.
