Blueberry Weed Wine Recipe (Marijuana Wine Recipe)
California has a lot of great things to offer, and without a doubt, the two best are weed and wine. Combine them together and the result is something truly special.
Dispensaries here have been selling marijuana-infused wine for a few years. I had been wanting to try it, but it is usually priced anywhere from $200 – $800/per bottle.
Because I already grow for personal use, I figured I should try my hand at making my own very weed wine recipe.
It’s a great way to use up those small popcorn buds or trim.
Marijuana/Weed Wine Recipe
Weed Wine Ingredients:
4 – 8 oz Popcorn Buds/Trim
4 lbs Fresh Blueberries
2 lbs Sugar
1 Gallon Water
1 Packet Red Star “Pasteur Red” Yeast
Tools Needed To Make Weed Wine:
2 1 Gallon Carboys
*Make sure all of your equipment is sanitized, as you would with making any wine
Wash the blueberries and pick through to remove any spoiled ones. Next, add them and the sugar to a very large pot. Mash the blueberries and sugar together (I use a potato masher).
Add the water and stir until well combined. Over medium-high heat, bring the mixture to a very gentle boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature. (This could take several hours.)
Place the popcorn buds and trim into one of your carboys. Add the blueberry wine mixture, then sprinkle in the yeast packet. Cover with your airlock and put in a dark place to ferment.
During fermentation, the carboy can overflow a little. I like to the floor around in a few layers of newspaper for easy cleanup.
About 4 weeks later, your weed wine should be done fermenting.
Now you need to siphon the wine from the old carboy to a freshly sanitized new carboy. When doing this, make sure not to transfer the few inches of sediment at the bottom of the first jug. You will also not be transferring the buds & trim.
Put the airlock on your new carboy and leave in the same place you fermented the first jug for another four weeks.
At the end of that month, I siphon out the wine into a giant bowl, filtering with a cheesecloth. This helps to get out all those little leaves or pieces of bud that may have stuck around. Just like the first time, there will be an inch or two of sediment in the bottom of your carboy, do not transfer this.
Once your wine has been trained through the cheesecloth, it is time for bottling.
I picked up a cheap set of wine bottles on Amazon, along with a handheld corker and cheap corks. Just fill each bottle up, cork, then place in a dark, cool place to age. It is best to let it age 6 months – 1 year.
Remember that this drink combines both alcohol and marijuana. I don’t use decarbed marijuana, so it is a mild high, but I would recommend taking it easy your first time. Especially if you don’t consume edibles often.
