Long days can be challenging, especially after work, so let’s be honest, sometimes we’d rather have a nice glass of wine rather than taking the time to roll one up. Have no fear, for cannabis-infused wine is here!
Dating back to the mid-1970s in California, a few enterprising winemakers at Chalon Vineyard prepared both grapes and cannabis in an attempt to fuse them together, according to The Spruce Eats. The blending of the two created a unique way to relieve pain, while giving euphoric vibes that does not contain alcohol.
As of 2021, blending wine and cannabis has evolved from just medicinal. Instead, it has progressed by reducing hangovers, relieving any pain, and promoting creativity. Enough chit-chat; let’s dive into what wines are an elegant blend of both worlds. Without further ado, here are six cannabis-infused wines to celebrate the harvest with this year.

In the mood for white wine? Then look no further than Jayde’s debuted wine, the 2018 Chardonnay X Sour Diesel. This sun-grown grape wine possesses airy and tropical notes with a hint of an earthly, energetic Sour Diesel flavor. This debuted wine promotes an enjoyable cerebral sensation and feelings of happiness and well-being.
With a blend of terpenes and CBD, the company’s 2018 rosé X Granddaddy Purple combines a sweet blend of grapes, high-quality CBD, and terpenes from the strain Granddaddy Purple. This pure rosé acts as a pain reliever and anxiety reducer, reports CannaVines.
