Honey is gaining a reputation for being a superfood, with Manuka honey attracting special attention. However, honey can be made even more powerful by infusing it with CBD (cannabidiol). This edible is awesome as you can either take it directly or mix it into your favorite beverages. Some choose to take their CBD honey just before bed, but this slow-release edible can be consumed at any time of day.
Before you start making CBD honey, you need to choose a CBD-dominant strain of cannabis, ideally industrial hemp, as these will contain only traces of THC, and not get you “high”.
Once you have your CBD-dominant strain, wrap it in cheesecloth and tie off the ends so none gets out. Then place the cheesecloth into a slow cooker and drape over the honey. For every ounce of hemp that you use, add five pounds of honey.
Heat the honey slowly and stir once every 30 minutes or so. After five hours, turn off the cooker and allow it to cool for a day. You can then decant the honey into airtight jars where it will be good for around six months.
Why use CBD honey?
With there being so many forms of CBD medication, why should you choose honey? As well as honey being full of wonderful properties anyway, there are other reasons why you may wish to get your CBD this way.
The slow release is good for those who find themselves in constant pain or distress. Instead of getting a quick fix, CBD honey will take effect slowly and last for several hours.
Furthermore, if you enjoy drinking teas, then CBD honey is a nice addition that allows you to get all of your medication in one efficient beverage.
