Weed ‘a companion piece’ to wine
Apr 20, 2017
(TDB) - With eight US states having legalised the recreational use of cannabis, winemakers in America are exploring the idea of weed and wine pairings.
As reported by The Times, a Wine & Weed Symposium will take place in California this August discussing how recreational cannabis use could positively impact on the wine industry and the ways the two industries can work together.
The symposium will explore the ways that grape growers and cannabis producers can co-exist and collaborate, as well looking at regulations, licensing, hospitality and tourism.
Winemaker and marijuana lover Robert Mark Kamen, who wrote the script for The Karate Kid, believes weed is “a companion piece” to wine.
“There are different flavours and bouquets to good weed, and different strains that elicit different effects. There are real body highs and real stony highs, and there are highs that are cerebral and ethereal,” he told The New York Times.
