So, what is CBD? CBD is one of the 100+ cannabinoids found in the cannabis, or hemp, plant. Like other cannabinoids, it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system – specifically the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the nervous system – to produce various effects. Consumers report that it can be used to help regulate the immune system and works to relieve pain (as an analgesic) and reduce inflammation (as an anti-inflammatory). It has also been reported to be used as an antibacterial agent, a neuroprotectant, and an appetite stimulant (has orexigenic properties). CBD shows promise for a variety of other ailments currently under clinical study.
What Is CBD Honey?
You might notice a common theme if you’re getting ready to buy CBD products online. Most CBD products are just like other gummies, lotions, and pet treats, except that they’ve been infused with CBD. The same is true of CBD honey. CBD-infused honey is natural honey that’s been combined with a hemp concentrate or extract.
This CBD-infused honey product can be packaged in various ways, just like regular honey. Many people like to buy their CBD honey in packs of sticks or pouches. When the honey comes packaged like this, it’s convenient to enjoy. The packaging can also make it easier to figure out exactly how much cannabidiol you’re getting from your honey product.
What’s in CBD Honey?
To qualify as CBD-infused honey, a product only really needs two ingredients: honey and CBD. That said, many products go above and beyond combinations of honey and CBD isolate. Because there are so many different flavors of honey, all types of CBD honey exist. You can find versions infused with all kinds of natural flavors like spicy peppers, herbs, and flowers.
Will CBD Honey Get You High?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is not psychoactive. In other words, CBD does not produce the “high” associated with marijuana. As a result, CBD honey is also legal in the United States because of the 2018 Farm Bill. The bill states that hemp with less than 0.3% THC is legal on a federal level.
Of course, all bets are off if the honey contains higher levels of THC. CBD honey that also contains THC might produce psychoactive effects or the sensation of being high. CBD honey from marijuana plants with more than 0.3% Delta 9 THC is not legal on a federal level in the United States.
Unlike hemp-derived CBD honey, products with high-THC content are only legal in places where marijuana has been legalized. It helps to know where the products in an online CBD store come from and what their ingredients are. CannaBuddy sells legal, hemp-derived CBD honey. You can find ingredient lists, including cannabinoid content, in the product descriptions and packaging.
Activating CBD via Honey
If you were making your own CBD products, you would have to decarboxylate the plant material to activate the CBD. Decarboxylation is the process of using heat to activate cannabinoids. That’s why eating a fresh hemp plant won’t do much for you – because the CBD hasn’t been activated yet.
When you buy CBD honey, you don’t have to worry about decarboxylation. The CBD isolate, distillate, or oil has already been activated as part of the extraction process. In other words, you can buy CBD honey and enjoy it without having to complete a science project in your kitchen.
One thing to note, though, is that honey doesn’t contain fat. This is worth knowing because CBD is fat-soluble. In other words, your digestive system can absorb more CBD when it’s with some fat. This is true of any type of edible CBD product, including honey, gummies, and tea. That’s why many people enjoy edible CBD with or after a meal containing some fat.
What Goes Well With CBD Honey?
Tea and honey make a great combination. In fact, many people like to combine CBD tea and CBD honey, depending on how much CBD they want to have at one time. Because CBD is fat-soluble, some people might also like to add milk or cream to these drinks.
Of course, there are many other ways to enjoy CBD honey beyond just stirring it into your tea. Because there are so many flavors of CBD-infused honey, the possibilities are almost limitless. Here are just a few ways to get creative next time you want to cook with CBD honey:
- Make a glaze for vegetables, fruit, or meat.
- Make some honey butter.
- Bake something with a recipe that calls for honey.
- Add a drizzle of honey to charcuterie items like cheese or nuts.
Some of these options are especially nice because they provide ways to pair fat-soluble CBD with fats from dairy products, meat, avocados, and nuts. If you feel like you’re in a creative rut in the kitchen, you can always try looking up recipes that use honey!
