Marijuana infused wine is for individuals who just want a little extra in their wine. These products are being sold legally in various states in the cannabis market. It offers cannabis enthusiasts an opportunity to drink a delicious beverage that is filled with several benefits from marijuana. To purchase this wine, you have to live in a legal cannabis state. Not to mention they are quite expensive. So, to circumvent the legal restrictions and prices, many individuals are making their own marijuana infused wine at home.
There are countless recipes for infusing your wine. Following is one of the simple methods:
Get at least four ounces of stems. Add as much leaves as you want as they make the wine better. However, avoid adding seeds since they don’t have any THC in them and they also make the marijuana infused wine taste bad. Apart from these, following are the required
• One cake of fresh active yeast
• 3lbs of sugar, either refined or white
• A lemon and two fresh oranges
Here’s the equipment you will need:
• Old nylon stockings
• A 3-foot length of plastic tubing
• Several smaller bottles
• 2 one-gallon jugs with caps
Follow these steps:
- Decarboxylate Your Marijuana
In order to activate the THC and get the desired benefits from marijuana, you will need to heat it. The marijuana holds THCA in its natural state and its energy can only be released via heating. Break up and scatter an eighth of your favorite strain across a baking dish. After that, cover it all with aluminum foil, then bake it for twenty minutes at 220°F. Then, let it cool.
- Grind the Product
Grind the baked marijuana into a dry tea consistently via a marijuana grinder or mortar and pestle.
- Create Tea Bags
Shape the tea bags out of cheesecloth. Avoid packing the packets too tightly or overfilling them. Submerge the marijuana bags in the bottle of white or red wine of your choice and then pour them into a bowl. Don’t forget to tie the cheesecloth corners tightly at the top.
- Chill the Wine
Cover the bowl with cellophane and let it steep in the refrigerator for 48 hours. After every four hours, stir the wine to reduce the settling and improve the extraction. Next, remove the bowl from the refrigerator and marijuana bags from the brew. After that, use a fine cheesecloth to strain it repeatedly in order to eliminate any debris. Once the extraction results are improved, save the wine in its original bottle and put an original cork on it to get the maximum benefits from marijuana infused wine.
- Try it Again
You should learn how to adjust the process and ingredients after your first try. You cannot expect perfection the first time. So, it is recommended that you pay attention to the potency and tastes. You may find the marijuana aromas and taste too strong, or you may not like the effects. Fortunately, you have multiple options. You can add essences of spices and fruits to taste.
