Cannabis and honey are both known to have healing properties as they are known to be anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. Honey on its own is a power food and combining it with marijuana can be really beneficial and delightfully heady at the same time. So here’s how to make cannabis honey to eat with your toast. You could also try out a teaspoonful in your teas, beverages or with a smoothie and get set to float away. You can use it to cook also. The recipe is simple to make but its effects are highly potent. The recipe is made with sugar shack and bud because sugar shack is made of foliage and leaves which contain more cannabinoids than buds.
- 28 gram marijuana (half and half of sugar shack and bud)
- 1kg honey
- Crock pot
- Rubber Gloves
- Kitchen weighing machine
Take a 50/50 mixture of Sugar shack cannabis and bud. Measure out 28 grams. Place it in a bowl. Remove any stems and break it up into smaller pieces that will make it easy to infuse with honey.
Take a doubled piece of cheesecloth and place the crushed cannabis on it. Roll up the cheesecloth like you do with an egg roll. Now take a piece of string and tie it gently around the cheesecloth at one end, center and the other end so that cannabis is secure and does not flow out into the honey. Don’t wrap the cheesecloth too tightly as honey should enter it freely.
In the meantime place the honey in a crock pot at very low temperature and heat it. Place the bundle of marijuana in the honey in the crock pot. Cover the crock pot and let it simmer on very low heat for 4 hours. After each hour stir the marijuana bundle. After each hour you will notice a change in colour from light orange to a darker orange. Make sure you don’t boil the mixture or it will lose all its properties. To ensure it retains its potency cook on very low heat. After four hours switch off the crock pot and allow the mixture to sit overnight.
Next morning if the mixture is not of pouring consistency then warm it up a bit. Now put on the rubber gloves and gently squeeze the bundle. Get out as much as you can. Once the mixture is out of the bundle give it a twist to wring out the last of it. Pour the marijuana honey from the crock pot into jars for storing away.
The marijuana honey is potent and you are likely to feel ripped if you take too much of it. So to begin with take half a teaspoon. You will begin to feel the effects after half an hour. You can substitute this with any honey recipe and enjoy the stony effect. Sugar shack cannabis is a great strain but doing too much of it can put you into slumber right away!
