Weed Wine with Alana Burstein, Founder, and President of Viv & Oak. A beautiful blend of select wines and premium cannabis, Viv is the ultimate alternative beverage for those who love wine but want to avoid alcohol. By eliminating the alcohol and replacing it with THC and CBD, Viv delivers the ﬂavor, mouthfeel and elevated social experience of conventional wine, without the negative effects of alcohol. You can thank us in the morning. They use state-of-the-art technology to extract 99.5% of the alcohol and replace it with premium THC and CBD.
Through Viv’s proprietary nano-encapsulation process, they speed up the onset (effect) typically experienced in cannabis edibles, sometimes as long as two hours! Rather than entering through the stomach and liver, Viv is absorbed through the mucous membranes. This accelerates onset to 10-15 minutes, similar to that of standard alcoholic wine, and reduces overconsumption caused by delayed onset. One of the drawbacks of traditional cannabis edibles is its speed of onset, or, shall we say, lack of speed. Edibles often take from 30 -120 minutes to take effect, which can lead to overconsumption. The onset of Viv is similar to a glass of wine, about 10-15 minutes.
