So apparently you have to be sophisticated to drink weed gin apparently they’ve got nothing against hippies, which of course, means, they despise hippies.

Here’s the blurb.. you’d better be into cool jazz sounds  and something that by it’s description smells like a toilet cleaner…….

But this isn’t just another drink you can smash shots of on a LIT Saturday night at the club. It’s something to be enjoyed in a dark classy bar while listening to a double bass play smooth jazz music, or over a cheese platter made with only the finest produce. It’s a little more sophisticated, elegant, and classy than your reg G&T, and there’s plenty of science behind its (good) madness.

Created by The Cannabis Company in Victoria’s Healesville region, the spirit is the result of years of research by senior researcher at The University of Melbourne, Dr David Stapleton. He then teamed up with co-owners Cormac Sheehan and Richard Jameson, to take “the Tree of life” and turn it into a delicious scientific approach.

We’ve got nothing against hippies,” says Sheehan. “But the public image of the cannabis plant is still stuck in the ‘60s. It’s unfortunate, as this plant has a million applications as a food, a medicine, a textile, even as a sustainable fire-resistant building material. Yet it still suffers from considerable stigma, the result being that millions of Aussies are missing out on how it can benefit their lives.”

Hailed “The Mycrene Hemp Gin”, it’s made using the most abundant terpene found in cannabis, which is considered to be the “essence” of the plant.

In fact, Mycrene is the most highly-valued terpene due to its ability to ease symptoms of chronic pain and inflammation. A serving of this hemp gin also gives off the same feel-good sensation you get from your regular wine – just with a few added health benefits.

As for its taste, this is where it gets really LIT.

Firstly, it’s best served with a squeeze of fresh lemon and some tonic. As you lean in to smell it, you’ll get a hit of bubble gum aromas blended with pine forest, sage and lavender. So damn extra.

But as you take your first sip, you’ll get a lovely blend of rosemary, resin, cloves and woody spices.

Happy Ocsober is over? Yes. Happy healthy alcohol now exists? 200 per cent yes.
