Cannabis-infused honey can be a delicious and convenient way to incorporate the potential health benefits of cannabis into your diet. The honey adds a touch of sweetness to balance out the earthy taste of the cannabis, and it can be easily added to a variety of foods and beverages.
Cannabis has been shown to have a number of potential health benefits, including pain relief, anti-inflammatory effects, and the ability to reduce anxiety and stress. When consumed orally, the effects of cannabis can take longer to take effect than when it is inhaled, but they can also last longer.
It’s important to note that the effects of a cannabis-infused product may vary from person to person, and it is always advisable to consult with a medical professional before using any cannabis-infused products, especially if you are taking other medications or have a pre-existing medical condition. However, for those seeking an easy and delicious way to incorporate cannabis into their diet, cannabis-infused honey may be worth a try.
- 1 cup honey
- 1/4 cup ground, decarboxylated cannabis
- Preheat your oven to 245°F (118°C).
- Spread the ground cannabis evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the cannabis for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to ensure even decarboxylation.
- Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the cannabis cool.
- In a small saucepan, combine the honey and decarboxylated cannabis.
- Heat the mixture over low heat, stirring constantly, until the cannabis is fully infused into the honey. This will take about 20-30 minutes.
- Once the mixture is fully infused, remove the pan from the heat and strain the honey through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth to remove any plant material.
- Pour the strained honey into a clean, airtight jar.
- Allow the honey to cool before sealing the jar and storing in the fridge.
- To use, add a spoonful of the honey to your favorite tea, coffee, or other beverage, or use it as a sweetener in your favorite recipes.
This recipe allows you to infuse the honey directly with the ground cannabis, resulting in a more potent and flavorful product. As with any cannabis-infused product, it’s important to use caution and start with a small amount to gauge your tolerance before increasing the dosage. As always, it is advisable to consult with a medical professional before using any cannabis-infused products, especially if you are taking other medications or have a pre-existing medical condition.
