Cannabis Infused Honey Sticks
Cannabis Infused Honey Sticks, hi! The possibilities are endless for this versatile cannabis infusion. Use it in lieu of other types of sweetener by incorporating it into your favourite sweet and savoury dishes (think: honey oat muffins, chocolate avocado mousse, smoothies, and more), or just simply stir the sweet liquid gold into a cup of tea or drizzle over a cheeseboard.
Note: Homemade edibles are very difficult to accurately dose. This guide will give you some tips for more precise dosing, but all DIY cannabis cooks should be aware that there’s no way to guarantee the potency or homogeneity of their batch.
How to make cannabis-infused honey
Cannabis-infused honey couldn’t be any easier to make. This recipe comes courtesy of The Wellness Soldier Cody Lindsay and requires just two ingredients, indirect heat, and time.
1 cup of honey
3.5 grams of decarboxylated cannabis
The essential (and often missed) first step: Decarboxylating the cannabis
Before making your infusion, you’ll need to decarboxylate, or “decarb”, the cannabis flower you’re working with. Skipping this step will result in a weak or inactive finished product. Here’s why: Cannabis buds produce a non-intoxicating acidic cannabinoid called THCA. When we smoke or vaporize cannabis, the heat converts THCA into THC, the molecule that delivers euphoric effects. If preparing CBD edibles, this same process should be applied.
Cannabis Infused Honey will make 12 oz of marijuana honey, containing about 10 mg THC. Made from supercritical CO2 extracted cannabis oil and clover honey, these are a great choice for a long lasting therapeutic effect, and are reported to provide an uplifting, cerebral experience.
