Most edibles in your local dispensary are full of sugar, which will leave you feeling low vibe. By infusing honey, you can make your own healthy cannabis edibles at home. Simply add this infused honey to your favourite recipes for an elevated treat. Or simply stir into a cup of coffee or tea for some high vibes.
1 cup of honey
3.5 grams of finely ground decarboxylated cannabis or kief
Prepare a double boiler by placing 1-2 cups of water in the bottom pot.
Bring the water to a boil over high heat.
Turn off the heat and add the top pot to your double boiler.
Add honey to the top pot and allow it to gently warm up.
Add your finely ground, decarboxylated cannabis flower or kief to the honey and mix well.
Strain the honey by placing a funnel on the top of a mason jar and line it with a cheesecloth.
Pour the honey over the cheesecloth funnel and allow it to strain through freely.
Pour into an airtight container for storage away from direct light and heat.
Stir well before using.
*Be sure to finely grind your cannabis flower so that more of the beneficial cannabinoids stay in your honey.
*You must decarboxylate your cannabis flower prior to making infused honey to activate the THF, if you want to experience a high.
*Any type of honey will work. However, you will get more health benefits by choosing locally sourced, raw, organic honey.
*You can also use agave nectar, maple syrup, or brown rice syrup instead of honey.
*Use a double boiler method to gently warm the honey so that you don't destroy all the good stuff in your local honey.
*Some separation will occur with either method. Please stir the honey each time you use it to ensure more consistent dosage.
*Gently heat your honey if it has crystallized to bring it back to its liquid state.
*To test the potency of your infusions, add a half teaspoon of your infused honey to a cup of tea or spread on toast and see how this dose affects you after a couple hours. You can increase or decrease the dose from there. Remember to Start Low and Go Slow.
*You can add other herbs, such as vanilla, lavender or rose to add both flavour and additional botanical compounds.
