Rebel Wine a little bit rebellious

We all love being a little bit rebellious every now and again and have a cheeky sip of wine during the day don’t we? but have you ever had a wine which has CBD within? Rebel Wine is both, wine and CBD, all of which has been naturally infused together and comes within cans, so it can easily be taken with you no matter where you adventure for that naughty tipple when you need it!

Rebel Wine

Launched late 2020 Rebel Wine hit the UK with a wine which is naturally infused with CBD. There are some wines with CBD in the USA, but Rebel Wine is the first produced in the UK. Rebel Wine is infused with 10mg of naturally occurring CBD, and is the first of its kind, and available in three delicious wine options of an award-winning Rosé, a Sauvignon Blanc and a Merlot. 

“We are delighted to bring Rebel to the market. We  first developed the concept of wine with an infusion of CBD back in 2017 and we are very  excited to launch the first CBD infused wine in the UK. Following many years of tests and  trials to ensure the best quality product is available for the consumer, we have been  working with the highest quality provider of Hemp, organically grown in Colorado.”

Rupert St Aubyn from Rebel Wine

Rebel Wine wines are high quality South African wine and consists of 13% alcohol. The wine is carefully infused with hemp, and contains naturally occurring CBD and then canned. The natural infusion of CBD will enhance the enjoyment and drinking experience and is a natural way to make CBD more enjoyable. All of their wines contain less than 0.2% THC (the active ingredient in cannabis) in line with the EU Regulations. They advise no more than 70mg CBD per day and no more than 3-4 units of wine daily, so no more than 2 cans per day.
