AZ Company launches alcohol-free and THC-infused wine
Sweet Dreams Vineyard has officially launched two non-alcoholic THC adult beverages just in time for 4/20, the unofficial April 20 holiday celebrating marijuana. Cannabernet and Marijuarita are made in Arizona and sold at dispensaries across the valley, use state-of-the-art nano-emulsification technology and all-natural juices to create an enjoyable adult experience. They are healthier alternatives to drinking traditional wines or smoking cannabis, provide a fast and consistent high, and help with sleep and pain management.
“Smoking cannabis has many disadvantages and may be unacceptable in certain social settings,” said Bill Gibbs, founder of Sweet Dreams Vineyard. “And traditional edibles can take up to two hours to work.” Sweet Dreams Vineyards offers the social pleasure of a fast-acting alcoholic beverage and the relaxation of cannabis without the health risks of either.
A recent study found that during the pandemic, alcohol consumption skyrocketed, with 60% of Americans consuming more alcohol to cope with additional stress and anxiety. Sweet Dreams Vineyard beverages provide a relaxing and soothing effect similar to alcohol, but with far fewer calories and far fewer drawbacks associated with excessive alcohol consumption or cannabis use (including inhalation of toxic chemicals). Cannabernet has half the calories of traditional wine per serving, and the Marijaurita has just 45 calories, far fewer than the traditional cocktail version, which can run into the hundreds, depending on the amount of sweetener used.
These drinks also offer fast-acting effects similar to an alcohol-based drink without the hangover of alcohol. Using nano-emulsification technology, which makes THC water soluble, effects kick in in as little as 15 minutes. This means they are more convenient and safer than traditional edibles where the two hour delay between taking the traditional edible and feeling its effects can lead people to abuse them and have an unpleasant experience.
“With the growing public acceptance of cannabis, I think people are now more open to a healthier alternative to traditional alcoholic beverages,” Gibbs said. “Our goal is to provide consumers with a range of healthier alternatives to alcohol to reduce anxiety and pain, relax and get a good night’s sleep.”
And unlike other cannabis drinks, Cannabernet and Marijuarita offer a flavor profile reminiscent of wine and cocktails, without the bitter taste of THC. Cannabernet is made with high antioxidant blueberry and pomegranate juice, while Marijuarita is made with real lime juice. Gibbs worked with a local valley sommelier and various food scientists to develop palate-pleasing recipes.
Cannabernet is available in a 187ml single-use bottle as well as a larger 750ml bottle. The Marijuarita is also available in an individual 187ml bottle. The 187ml bottle of Cannabernet or Marijuarita is available in THC concentrations of 10mg, 50mg or 100mg. Full-size 750ml bottles are available in 25mg, 50mg, or 100mg THC strengths. So no matter your tolerance or history with cannabis, there’s likely a strength that’s right for you. However, it is always recommended to start with a five ounce glass of the lowest strength and gauge your individual reaction before having more.
Much like alcoholic beverages, within 15 minutes consumers can expect to experience mild relief from pain, stress, and anxiety, including a mild sedative effect without a hangover the next day.
Benefits of Cannabernet and Marijuarita over wine or other THC products may include:
Healthier alternative to inhaling cannabis

Sweet Dreams Vineyard products are sold to anyone over the age of 21 at herbal wellness centers and a growing number of dispensaries across the valley.
