Tougher than the “green fairy”: how the US produces wine from … cannabis
Have you ever tried absinthe? If the acquaintance took place, it is unlikely that it was the same legendary potion that turned the head of Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud or spurred the creative madness of van Gogh to write “Starry night”. Although a modern drink can cool “take down the roof”. But the “green fairy” (by the way, banned in a number of countries) has a worthy competitor. After all, in the United States began to produce wine on marijuana. Medical, of course.
Playing nice music and drinking a glass of good wine after a busy day at work is not a bad thing. Well, if only one. But it is difficult to predict how the evening will end in the company of the Canna Vine drink (even in a modest portion). It’s probably a lot of fun and with the desire to eat a big cake at a time. After all, this wine is added to the real cannabis. Quite legal.
In addition to the specific shade and pronounced herbaceous taste, cannabis wine has retained all the “best” properties of both progenitors. Of course, to really “fly away” from such a drink, one glass is clearly not limited to. Experts note that “the first SIP gives a pleasant blush, and at the end of the evening you will be really sound sleep.”
For the production of wine of an unusual poisonous green color, several California companies took over at once. After all, although marijuana is already legalized in a number of American States, only in California it is allowed to mix it with alcohol. Again, strictly for medical purposes.
But even in Sunny California, you can only buy green wine if you have a medical marijuana license. And this kind of gourmet food is not cheap: the minimum price tag is $ 100 per bottle.
