World’s First Cannabis-Infused Wine Launched

By Soko Directory Team / November 8, 2018




The use of cannabis sativa appears to be gaining prominence and now found its way in the alcoholic drinks after the launch of the world’s first luxury cannabis-infused wines.

The wines known as Saka Wines have been launched House of Saka comprising of Saka’s Sparkling Brut Rose as well as still Rose wines that are blended with a tasteless, odorless and water-soluble organic craft cannabis of the ration of THC and CBD.

This is the first wine of its kind formed by and for women dedicated to the development of luxury infused relaxation, beauty as well as wellness products.

Most countries in the world have continued to legalize the use of cannabis both for recreation and for medicinal purposes. In September, a Constitutional Court in South Africa decriminalized the use and cultivation of cannabis in private in a ruling that was received with mixed reactions. The court ruled that the South Africans cultivating and using cannabis in private should be ‘left in peace’ with the law that had criminalized the same being declared unconstitutional. However, the plant is still not cultivated for commercial purposes.

Last month, Canada legalized the use of cannabis for both commercials, recreational and medicinal. Within the first day of being legalized, Canadians rushed to buy the herb leading to a nationwide shortage for the same. In the seven days of being legalized, the herb is said to have made deals worth 8 billion US dollars for companies.

In Kenya, a member of parliament from Kibera, Ken Okoth, is in the process of petitioning the government to legalize the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes. Although many Kenyans have differed with him, some think it will be a great move for the government to widen its revenue collection net as well as creating employment for the youth.

Well, as Joseph Hill and his Mighty Culture reggae squad calls it the International Herb, only time will tell if the herb is going international.
