Attention Californians: weed-infused wine is officially available for purchase. The wine, known as Canna Vine was the product of a campfire conversation between Santa Cruz dispensary owner, Lisa Molyneux, and Verdad Wines owner, Louisa Sawyer Lindquist. Molyneux founded her shop, Greenway, in an effort to aid fellow cancer survivors like herself.
Canna Vine consists of high-end, organically grown marijuana and biodynamically farmed grapes. Biodynamic agriculture, developed in the 1920s, is defined by the Biodynamic Association as a “holistic” approach to farming that treats plant growth, soil fertility, and livestock care as ecologically interrelated tasks.
Because the fermentation temperatures for most infusions rarely surpass 90 degrees, consumers shouldn’t expect a crazy trip experience, but a mellow, physical “body high” instead. Molyneux describes the wine as “subtle” giving those who partake in this adventure the “best of both worlds.” The wine is not only delicious, but offers many “medical benefits” she said.
