Wine and weed pairing has become quite popular in the 420-friendly community in recent years. The buzz from alcohol and the high from marijuana are two unique experiences that can be better together when properly orchestrated. Read how you can pair different wine with marijuana strains or terpenes.
When you pair wine and food, a balance of complementary flavors is typically the guiding principle. With wine and weed, you’re going to want to focus heavily on terpenes and desired high.
Terpenes are aromatic compounds that are emitted from different plants and organic substances. Cannabis has terpenes that give it the strong odor that makes it so easily recognizable. Wine also has a very strong smell from the terpenes in fermented grapes.
The art of pairing wine and marijuana comes from choosing combinations with complementary terpenes.
Just like there are many flavors of wine, there are many strains of marijuana that are unique in terms of taste and experience.
There is no right or wrong with when pairing wine and marijuana, but there are a few combos that experts suggest.
Check out these combinations to see what your favorite type of wine or cannabis strain pairs best with.
Rosés are often paired with subtle floral strains. Bubba Kush, an Indica strain, is considered the perfect match to Rosé.
Cinderella 99 is a hybrid strain that is also a close pal of Rosé. It is said to offer a “spacey” high, making it the perfect relaxation combo
Cabernet Sauvignon is a dry red wine. A nice red goes particularly well with Indica-Sativa hybrids.
Sunset Sherbert is a hybrid that is great to match with a glass of Cab. The reason for this is that Cabernet has a relatively high alcohol content so the transitional high that comes with a hybrid activates all of your senses in the best way possible.
Having a celebratory flute of bubbly? A strain with citrusy terpenes is a great option to pair with champagne.
For a more chill body high, you’ll want to go with an Indica strain like Sensi Star or White Rhino. If you’re looking to be more alert and in the mood to party, a Sativa strain is more appropriate. Lemon Haze and Super Lemon Haze are good options.
If wine and weed pairing feels a bit overwhelming to you, do not fret. You’re not alone. Finding the perfect balance of aromas and flavors can be a bit daunting when you’re new to the game or if you have a lot of options to choose from.
Lucky for you, some places actually offer wine and weed tours. Marijuana and wine combos are curated to please your palate. This eliminates the need to experiment to find the right pair because an expert does it all for you.
Wine tours are among the first excursions that have brought the cannabis tourism industry to life.
If you are a lover of wine, weed or both, we recommend pairing the two. Whether you learn how to pair marijuana and wine yourself or you decide to do a tasting with a pro, you’re in store for a wonderful experience.
We hope you find the perfect Mary Jane and wine combo for your preferences!
The fight to legalize marijuana for both recreational and medical use has gone on for ages. Medical marijuana has become more accessible in the past few years. which is great news for the people who need it the most.
Cancer patients and their advocates have been at the forefront of this battle since marijuana has many benefits for those who are under treatment for cancer. In this post, we’re going to talk about marijuana and cancer. We will break down the health benefits of cannabinoids with a specific focus on THC and CBD.
Cannabinoids are compounds found in marijuana plants. These compounds are what causes humans to react to the plant itself.
Although there are hundreds of different cannabinoids, there are two in particular that you’ve likely heard of, CBD and THC.
Since your body actually produces some cannabinoids naturally, it is equipped with the receptors for these compounds, which is why the body reacts to cannabis the way that it does.
THC is the compound in the cannabis plant that gets you high. It is not totally legal for recreational use in the United States, however many states sell it to patients with a prescription or medical marijuana card.
CBD, which is short for “cannabidiol,” is known for relieving stress, easing physical pain and regulating sleep cycles. CBD does not get you high.
Many pills, gels, tinctures and other manufactured cannabis products give you the option of choosing CBD, THC or both since they each provide a unique benefit and experience.
Before we dive into how marijuana benefits cancer patients, we must make it abundantly clear that we are not suggesting that weed is a cure to cancer. We are talking about how marijuana can be used to treat some of the side effects of cancer and its treatments.
Cannabis products are often used to treat the side effects of chemotherapy, including nausea, vomiting and appetite stimulation.
THC is particularly helpful for appetite stimulation. Many people lose weight when they are very on chemo because they don’t have much of an appetite. Losing body mass can be dangerous for patients that are fighting to stay alive. Stimulating their appetites with THC can help them maintain or gain weight.
Symptoms vary between different types of cancer, but some cause pain. CBD, a natural pain reliever often considered a great alternative to pain killers since it is not addictive.
Some new studies suggest that CBD helps with neuropathy, which can be caused by cancerous tumors.
Aside from the relief of side effects, some doctors and scientists are hopeful they might find links between marijuana and cancer that is even more positive. Researchers are trying to learn if marijuana might slow the growth of cancer.
Access to marijuana is helpful to patients who are battling cancer. Especially those who are feeling the negative side effects of chemotherapy.
We welcome this plant’s increasing recognition for its true value. Escaping the societal confines that have kept it illegal for so many years.
If you are battling cancer, we recommend talking to your doctor to see how marijuana might help you.
People from around the world visit vineyards in Canada, France and Napa Valley in California to taste the finest wines paired with delectable hors d’oeuvre and beautiful landscapes.
Germany’s Oktoberfest brings millions of people to Munich each year for a two and a half week celebration of beer.
As recreational use of marijuana becomes legal in more and more places, similar events and venues are popping up that revolve around marijuana rather than alcohol and other delicacies.
In this stoner travel guide, we’re going to talk about cannabis/weed tourism and different types of excursions for the best 420 vacations.
Since recreational use of marijuana is not legal everywhere, many people have to travel to attend events and attractions that are 420-friendly.
Cannabis tourism is exactly what it sounds like: tourism that revolves around marijuana. There are several types of events, special activities and excursions designed to show marijuana connoisseurs a good time.
Let’s go over 5 of the most common cannabis-centered vacation activities that are bringing people to 420-friendly locations.
Traveling for festivals and events in just about any industry is a pretty normal thing to do. In recent years, marijuana meetups have become more and more popular
One of the most well known marijuana festivals is the Cannabis Cup. This is a traveling event that happens throughout the year that is actually a marijuana competition. Selected judges rank marijuana products in different categories.
Another popular event group is the Glowing Goddess Getaway, which was formerly known as Ganja Goddess Getaway. This is an organization that offers gatherings for members. Their gatherings take place all over North America and members only have to pay $4.20/month for access to registration.
As we mentioned, Napa, California is one of the most popular wine regions of the United States. Now that California is also becoming a cannabis tourism hotspot, weed and wine tours are popping up throughout the state.
This type of tour can come in different forms. Some take you to the more elegant vineyards and dispensaries for a high class experience. In these tours, you’d sample small amounts of wine and weed as you go.
Others tours will load you up in a party bus and have more of a bar crawl experience. You’ll enjoy the finer things in a less tame fashion.
If you want to skip out on the wine, you can also find guides who will take you to dispensaries only.
In most states, the “twist” in Painting with a Twist is wine or the beverage of your choice. In puff and paint, marijuana brings the twist.
Puff and paint venues, which are also sometimes called “canvas and cannabis,” are guided painting classes where guests are invited to enjoy smoke at the event. The idea is that getting high will help painters of all levels shake loose of their inhibitions and open their creative outlet.
These classes are typically BYOW (bring your own weed), but some studios will provide bongs, pipes and other accessories.
These classes are currently becoming more and more popular in Colorado, Nevada, California and other states where marijuana is legal for recreational use.
Cannabis cafes that sell THC infused goodies are springing up along the West Coast. Forget the pot brownies you bought from a kid in high school. These eateries offer delectable baked goods and a 5-star experience.
This is a relatively new concept, but there are some 420-friendly restaurants in California. The first one in the United States opened in the fall of 2019, and it’s called Lowell Farms: A Cannabis Cafe.
We suspect that more establishments like this one will pop up soon because what better combo is there than food and weed?
While there are a variety of events and excursions that attract marijuana lovers, some people make trips to cannabis-friendly states and countries simply because weed is legal.
The ability to walk into a dispensary like it’s a grocery store or beer distributor is an attraction itself for people who live in a place where weed shops aren’t allowed.
Cannabis tourism is on the rise. As weed becomes legal in more places and the stigma around marijauna begins to fade, more attractions and excursions related to weed will become available and cannabis tourism will surely flourish.
If you are looking to plan the best 420 vacation, we definitely recommend checking out what states like California, Colorado, Washington and Nevada have to offer. Canada is also a great place since weed is totally legal in all 10 provinces.
So, what are you waiting for? Are you ready to book your 420-friendly vacation?
