For this week’s cannabis pairing, we’re trying Blackberry Kush with Louis Jadot’s Beaujolais-Villages, from a French company who has been producing wines in the Burgundy region since 1859. Paring wine with cannabis offers different challenges than pairings with beer. Most, (though not all) wine, packs a strong, fruity, and at least somewhat acidic flavor, calling for a strain with a distinctive, full bodied flavor for a balanced pairing. The taste of most cannabis strains would be lost alongside red wine.

Blackberry Kush is bred from a combination of the storied, stony, Afghani indica, and the sweet and pungent hybrid, Blackberry. Like so many hallmark strains, the specific origins of Blackberry Kush are truly unknown as no breeders or growers have claimed Blackberry Kush as their own. The history of this strain will likely be forever lost in the shadows of the prohibition era underground.
