Vaping with Pinot Grigio


I was reading about the wine pairing with weed today. I was double checking my palate. So, being in Puerto Rico, I had to try a Pinot Grigio which is so citric in aromas and taste with whatever weed I had in hand.  There is mystery in the air. The tropics are humid and hot this evening. So I have to have some Cherry Wine after having King Kong strain in the afternoon.  My strains of choice at night are Rasta Kush, Purple Kush but I went again for the Cherry Wine.

On my wine glass, I have a Pinot Grigio from Italy. After having some hard time with my  rechargeable vape and I really wanted some Mango Kush, I went to the strain with more CDB on. So checking on my pot, I decided to go back to the Cherry wine. For my well-being, King Kong and Silver Haze are just for the day. They keep me very awake and energetic on the bright side but I am beginning to notice that high THC hybrids make me  upset most of the time. I don’t want to be that way. I’m going more into the CDB from now on. This is why you have to listen to your body. There is no standard dose like in pharmaceutical drugs. The rule of thumb I used were the suggestions given by my Dr. Jaime Claudio and my budtenders.

With that being said, I turned back to the acidity on the  Pinot Grigio. The classic mandarin orange notes, lime and mineral hues went well with the wine, even when it wasn’t a very good one.

Then after vaping some of the Cherry Wine, green pears as those from Anjou came forward on my palate. Then a sip of wine and the experience keep on intensifying. Some green grosellas, you have to be here in Puerto Rico to relate to them, even green white guavas come to my mind.

This is a real trip for the palate, mind and body. I’m getting in tune with all the flavors and aromas while their enhance in me. Of course I choose my dry herb vaporizer, the gadget I’m beginning to trust the most because of its effectiveness. So I went to my greens, the Pinot and the Weed.

The aftertaste is flavor full, citrus fruits, green apples, pears and lime come together as only one fruit. Then the Cherry Wine strain turns out really creamy, herbaceous and mineral. After some vaping, no pain and pure relaxation. At last, with the use of medical cannabis I’m feeling stress free. Yeah!

This is a great sensorial experience!

Wine and Weed: Cherry Wine Strain plus Real Wine

Cherry Wine Strain. I took the picture!

My body is my lab. I have this scientific approach to everything in life nowadays. I really appreciate all my years as agricultural communicator for the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus. A plus is my background as wine writer and humanistic approach to everything. This is not a CV just plain reality…so I write as nobody reads, that’s my philosophy.

Being an open book, true to my feelings I decided to shift to wine and weed in my Paquecepas blog. I write from the heart!

With this disclaimer or whatever it is, here I’m analyzing the flavors and effects of the strain cherry wine and Prophecy Red Blend, vintage 2015.

To increase my well being and knowledge, I had to take some steps. When I decided that my CLL was going to be treated with Ayurvedic medicine, spiritual guidance, pharmacological medicine and cannabis, I started out by contacting my dear friend and wine lover Dr. Jaime Claudio Villamil. And in my health ship, a great friend, Dr. Jose Caldera Nieves, is on board, as well as the understanding of my family. This is the great coupage not to a cure for leukemia, I do not expect that, I just want dignity. With that being said, my journey to a better life has been a learning process.

So I’m having a blend of wines from Washington state and California, I’m tasting the  cherry wine strain.

Let me make clear that I’m convinced that this is a hybrid, dominated by sativa. On this century, there are no pure strains due to evolution and breeding. I haven’t had this agricultural issue explained to my bud tender from my professor point of view.

I grinded my flowers and started trying them for the  anti inflamatory properties.

My taste buds are trained for wines and spirits, but here after vaping some of this cherry wine strain, the earthy, humid soil, a little flowery taste comes to mind. After some vaping, I felt a nice up feeling, very relaxed and there is no pain in my neck nodes.

I will have to see it the accumulative results of this strain will really alleviate my neck nodes. But there is something I am proud of, it goes well with the coupage. I really bet on this strain to pair with Zinfandels from California, Primitivo from Italy and even Priorats from Spain.

For now, the after taste is clean and long.

Remember, I’m not a weed guru, just a cannabis user and wine blogger. I came from the sublingual drops to cartridges to grinning. This is better understanding of what cannabis can do for you.

Be you, be well.
