You like wine. You like weed. But how do you feel about weed wine?
As perplexing as that might sound, it’s actually something adults living in legal marijuana states will be able to sip on. Rebel Coast Winery, a California company, is set to launch marijuana-infused wine in January, according to a Paste magazine report released on Wednesday. The Sauvignon Blanc is the first variety to hit the market.
Although weed wine might sound like a trippy drunk, developers behind the wine insisted the cannabis-infused concoction won’t give consumers hangovers. That’s because it doesn’t contain any alcohol. That’s where the weed comes into play. Each bottle has 16 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol—the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana responsible for the high.
“After one glass you won’t be thinking your couch is a hippo with short legs or anything. Our goal is not to kill you after you’ve had a few glasses. The goal is to get giggly and naked with someone. We set out to mimic the experience you’d find with traditional wine; a couple glasses will put most people in a great place,” Rebel Coast said in a statement.
The winemakers plan to expand their catalog of weed wine, too. Rebel Coast CEO and co-founder Chip Forsythe told Paste the company will roll out pot-infused rosé, as well as an elevated sparkling wine in 2018.
Customers can pre-order Sauvignon Blanc bottles on the company’s website for $59.99. The product will only be offered to residents living in California, and that’s after recreational marijuana sales begin in January. Later in New Year, the wine will be available for purchase and delivery in other recreational states and Canada.
During the 2016 election, adults in five U.S. states, including California, voted for recreational marijuana laws, upping the total number of completely legal pot states to eight along with Washington D.C.
