What Is Weed Wine?
When you think of wine you're most likely thinking of the bottles you buy from the store that are made out of various fruits. You might be surprised to learn that weed wine is actually pretty close to your traditional bottle of wine.
Wines made with weed are made from grapes and then infused with weed. There are many ways to infuse weed into wine from cold in-barrell processes to putting the concoction in a plastic jug.
No matter what the method is the idea here is to infuse the cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant itself into the wine mixture. If you think of how herbs can be infused into wine (such as mint and thyme to name a few) it's the same age-old process.
Even though the process seems simple there is a lot of planning that goes into each bottle. Just like master winemakers choose each grape they bottle carefully winemakers that infuse their vint with weed choose each strand carefully.
Lighter wines such as moscatos will have sativa strands that are fruity and have citrus-heavy terpenes. On the other side of the spectrum, heavier wines such as merlots will have pungent and bold indicas.
