Pairing Whiskey and Marijuana

Pairing Whiskey and Marijuana

The tradition of drinking whiskey has been developed and refined over several decades now. It should be savored very slowly paying keen attention to its more delicate and finer flavors as much as you would a fine strain of marijuana. Marijuana legalization and its rapid expansion has opened up the possibility of new experiences such as the pairing of fine whiskey and exquisite marijuana strains in a way that shows both discerning taste and sophistication.

This along with the fact that it has made finding high quality marijuana products much easier and safer. Both the experienced and amateur pot user is fast becoming more concerned with getting the perfect drink and weed strain match for their particular occasions that may be at hand. Focusing on their individual subtle flavors is what will largely determine how good the marijuana, whiskey pairing will be.
