Cannabis Infused Wine
Rebel CoWinery ,Founded by a group of friends in the year 2012. It turned out cannabis and alcohol cannot be sold in the same building and definitely not in the same product. That was when Rebel Coast decided to make the wine, remove the alcohol and replace it with THC.
it has primarily focused on producing Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, with a goal to “…make wine for everybody. No ‘chateau,’ no last names in cursive, no ‘100 year old tradition,’ no price tag.” But focusing on those two grape varieties hardly brings to mind the winery’s other claim: “to simply make wines to excite the rebellious spirit in us all.”
One can now arguably say the winery has met its “rebellious spirit” goal with the release of Rebel Coast Cannabis(Rebel CoWinery) Infused Sauvignon Blanc. With this wine, the winery adds a fourth to its list of “nos”: no alcohol (technically, less than 0.5% alcohol by volume). In place of alcohol, a bottle of this Sauvignon Blanc comes with 20 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) by volume, the principal psychoactive chemical in cannabis. That’s approximately 5 milligrams per glass. It’s not an exact science, but 5 ml of THC is supposed to produce a quick buzz.Rebel CoWinery
The company, which owns Seghesio Family Vineyards in Healdsburg and Pine Ridge Vineyards in the Stags Leap region of Napa Valley, said its sales were $17.3 million for the quarter, which is a 15 percent increase from the same period a year ago.
The company experienced growth primarily in its wholesale business, where its net sales increased by $2.1 million for the quarter. The increase was triggered by domestic volume increases of 19 percent and 48 percent from exports during the three-month period.
“I am honored that I get to serve alongside some of our industry’s leaders who constantly strive to find that balance between high-quality science and the fast-paced need for information and change,” Thorngate said in a statement.
