Weed and wine at the same time have been an undeniably pleasant pastime for a quite some time. With the advent of legalization, the practice of pairing specific strains and wine varieties together has become an increasingly popular activity, and it is easy to see why.
Pairing weed and wine can create an entirely new and unique experience, and many have found that the right combination can produce remarkable and impressive effects. With an enormous variety of wines and an equally vast amount of weed strains; there are tons of possibilities – the sky is the limit.
Here are some helpful weed and wine hints:
Try for flavors and feels that match each other. For instance, the sweet, fruity tones and body highs of Blueberry or Purple Haze work well with dark red wines. A bitter white or red wine with something piney or diesel-flavored.
Balance a pairing with aspects that compliment each other. Spicy with sweet, earthy with citrus.
Methods such as vaporizing tend to work better for getting the best wine and weed pairing, but use your discretion – a joint or bong hit could work perfectly.
There is plenty of room for experimentation; but here are some favorite weed and wine pairings to get the ball rolling.
