Low Cal Cannabis "Wine" for New Years!
Updated: Dec 30, 2019
During the holiday season, there’s no shortage of alcoholic beverages. The only problem is that drinking too much of these can give you a hangover the next day. It doesn’t stop there….
What about the amount of calories and sugar in each drink?
Wouldn’t it be nice to start the New Year without feeling bloated nor hungover?
Rebel Coast to the rescue!
This is a newer type of adult beverage, because it’s a wine-like drink infused with Cannabis THC (thc is the psychoactive ingredient in Cannabis that makes you feel you “high”). Two types are available Sativa which has the look and taste of a Sauvignon Blanc & Pink Passion that is more like a Rose. Sativa is best known to generally give you an uplifting and euphoric effect.
Each bottle has 40 mg of THC without alcohol (it’s illegal to sell alcoholic & cannabis products combined). It has the same look and taste as wine! There is also a guide on the bottle to help with dosing. Each serving is 10mg and only 49 calories per glass. Keep in mind that if you’re new to Cannabis, always start low dose so you may want to cut this serving in half.
You can start to feel the effect of THC in as little as 15 minutes. That’s much faster than a typical edible which can take up to 45 min - 60 minutes. The effect doesn’t last as long as an edible which can make it easier to dose.
Of course this can be fun at any party or girls night, however it can also be used therapeutically as well. When I purchased it from the dispensary, the manager mentioned that her mother loved it to help her go to sleep.
I tried Rebel Coast with my friend, Marlene who prefers alcohol over Cannabis. She doesn’t like to smoke and she doesn’t like feeling tired. That tired feeling from Cannabis can happen with certain strains and edibles (some people may want that). I knew she’s been interested in finding recreational alternatives to alcohol because she wants to make healthier choices.
This was probably the most fun I’ve ever had reviewing a product. We tried the Sativa as if we were having a “girls night,” drinking our “wine” while discussing things like working in the Cannabis Industry, plus new and interesting products.
We definitely felt the effects in about 15 minutes, maybe even less. I had a harder time with the taste than Marlene did. She drank her full glass and I struggled to get half way. It was mostly from an aftertaste that I found more palatable when I bit into a pickle after every sip.
The effect was awesome!
There were plenty of giggles and silliness to give me a belly ache from laughing so hard. It also felt really nice in the body. I felt like I could dance or do yoga (no couch lock).
We drank half the bottle with one serving for each of us. We had a nice fun buzz for about 2 hours. After that time, we felt relaxed and ready for bed.
We rated Rebel Coast Sativa 4 stars for having such a great effect. The only reason why we didn’t give a 5 was because of the slight funny aftertaste.
