Because it’s never not an appropriate time to discuss our love of wine, we have to let you in on this intriguing new wine that’s infused with marijuana. If either of those, erm, relaxation techniques appeal to you, your brows are probably hovering a centimeter away from your hairline out of pure shock and obvious interest. So, here’s the deal: According to Refinery 29, California winemakers have begun producing barrels of weed wine, also known as Canna Vine, for commercial purposes.

Weed-infused wine will only be available for sale in California to those who have a medical license. And even in states where marijuana is legal (recreational or medicinal), it’s still against the law to infuse it with alcohol.

Another high-blowing fact about this marijuana and alcohol concoction is its cost, which ranges between $120 to $400 a bottle, Elite Daily reports.

Oof. This news had us just as excited as the marijuana tampons that reduce period pain, but if it’s not easily accessible or legal where you live, some good old-fashioned wine will have to do the trick.
