Out of all the recipes for cannabis infused food, Cannabis Honey is definitely one of the most simple to make. Basically it’s a two ingredient recipe. Yes, you guessed it right! It’s Cannabis and Honey!
You can infuse Cannabis into honey successfully, Cannabis Honey is not difficult to do but it requires time and carefully selecting the right kind of honey to start with.
To understand the process better. Cannabinoids are only soluble in fat. What it means is that they dissolve in fat. They are more efficiently absorbed by fat and finally can only store in fat well.
This is the reason why, when we infuse cannabis in edibles, we would usually start off with a high fat medium, like oil or butter to extract and infuse the weed to first and from there combine this infused fats to whatever we choose to cook.
Honey is usually not known as a high fat food, so this is not usually a normal thing people would use to infuse weed to. So to be able to do so as mentioned earlier we must use the correct kind of honey to be able to successfully pull this recipe off.
So, what you should be looking for is the most raw, unfiltered, unprocessed honey you can get your hands on! This means that since this type of honey has not undergone any processing yet its fatty acids are still intact!
Usually this kind of honey is still cloudy in appearance because this still contains all the beeswax sediments in it. These particles are the game changer in the honey infusion process as this is where the cannabinoids will be binding and get stored into.

How to Make Cannabis Honey
1.) Decarb your Buds. Use a tray and line this with parchment. Spread the buds on the tray. Place in an oven for around half an hour to an hour at 240 degrees F. Mix the buds around every 10 mins to distribute the heat evenly.
2.) Grind the buds coarsely and mix this with the honey in the double broiler. Put on the stove top and and set on low heat. Make sure not to let the honey/weed mixture boil too much as this will risk vaporizing the cannabinoids.
3.) Let the mixture simmer and maintain it in low heat for around an hour. Stir mixture occasionally.
4.) Now let the Cannabis-Infused Honey cool down and set aside.
5.) Position the Funnel on the Jar and line this with cheesecloth. Once this has cooled down enough to handle. Pour the mixture in the funnel and let this drip through the cheesecloth filter for a while.
6.) Once all of the honey seeped through. Take the cheesecloth with your hands and tie the corners together to make a small pouch containing the weed sediments in it. Keep twisting the cheesecloth to squeeze out all the weed goodness left in its bits.
7.) Viola! You now have your own Cannabis-Infused Honey ready to be mixed into anything you wish! May it be your tea! On toast or even your morning oats!
