Making cannabis-infused honey is a great way to enjoy the benefits of marijuana with various meals and snacks. Honey is a natural sweetener and has many health benefits of its own. When you combine the two, you get a delicious and healthy treat that will help you relax and unwind. In this post, we will show you how to make your own cannabis-infused honey at home!
Cannabis-Infused Honey Recipe
CBD or THC honey is created by gently heating cannabis with honey. It’s anti-inflammatory, integrating the anti-inflammatory properties with both high-CBD hemp plus honey. It’s very simple to create and has a distinct sweet flavour with herbal notes. Preparing cannabis-infused honey is less difficult than you would imagine. Let’s get started on our recipe.
- 1 cup honey
- 1 gram decarboxylated cannabis (or more/less depending on desired potency)
- Jar for storage
- Add honey and cannabis to crockpot.
- Stir well and set temperature to low heat (around 200 degrees Fahrenheit).
- Cook mixture on low heat for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
- Once finished cooking, use cheesecloth to strain mixture into a jar.
- Store in a cool, dark place and enjoy as needed!
Start with 1 gram of cannabis and increase/decrease as needed based on desired potency. If using fresh, un-decarboxylated cannabis, cook for 4-5 hours on low heat. Be sure to label your infused honey so you know how strong it is! Cannabinoids are fat-soluble, so adding a bit of coconut oil to the mixture can help increase the potency.
