    Looking for a good canna honey recipe. I have searched the net and the crocpot simmer method seems to be popular.

    I tried it yesterday and my honey is very weak. I decarbed first and it made no difference.

    I am thinking of making some rick simpson oil and just adding that to 5lbs of honey then simmering in in the crocpot.

    Thoughts?

    Ingredients
    • 1 ounce of high-quality cannabis, finely ground
    • 5 lb. container honey
    Equipment:
    • Crock-Pot
    • Cheesecloth
    • String
    Directions
    Take the finely ground marijuana and wrap it in cheesecloth, secure with string. Place the bundle in a Crock-Pot and cover the entire package in honey. Cover the Crock-Pot and set on low. Simmer for 4 hours, stirring occasionally. The mixture should summer (not boil!). If it begins to boil be sure to turn the Crock-Pot off and let it cool down before turning it on again.

    Remove the bundle from the honey and strain the honey from the cheesecloth. Let is cool and pour it into small glass jars that can be sealed tightly. Your final product should be a warm orange. Substitute for honey in any recipe. We love to add honey tincture to our smoothie, coffee and tea. The honey can be stored in your cupboard for up to 1 month.


    I notice it doesn't include directions to decarb the cannabis? I found this online. I have never tried this recipe. The RSO idea sounds good too.

    Ive tried making cannahoney before with this method. I think its kind of a waste of good bud since it came out super weak. If your someone who grows or can get good quality bud for cheap or free then this might be a good method.

    This commercial California edible is pretty popular and effective.
    Only 3 ingredients: Pot, Honey, Coconut Oil
    The coconut oil helps in the effectiveness department big time.

    I wonder if they just infuse the cocoanut oil or the honey too. This is actually a very good idea. I want to use this for tea. Ive tried just adding infused cocoanut oil to tea but it was a little strange. I'm sure the combo might be more palatable.

    Just throwing my:2c: in here.... I have been all over numerous cooking sites and have dozens of recipes i would like to taste but what i keep coming back to is the fact that i can only afford to cook for myself or a friend or two and to make a big or specialized batch of ANYTHING is not only not cost effective but can vary the dosage that i determined works great for me in coconut oil. I actually have my canna butter in little cubes and i add them to my individual servings of things just like a condiment. Take honey for instances...i drink my teas unsweetened but love honey on a biscuit or toast. Instead of cannahoney, why not just spread cannabutter on a toast and add honey? same with hummus, sauces, soups, etc... i like things simple :)

    Its like salt or sugar...add when desired :)

    I have been thinking about trying to make canna honey, but the research I came across had two differing theories. One group saying that sugars in the honey are enough to hold the THC, and other side saying that honey itself will make only a weak solution, and that it should be extracted into an alcohol or glycerin tincture first and then added to the honey. I am still undecided, but I think that either way, for my first batch, I'll use AVB instead of premium herb, just on case it doesn't work out.

    I'd like to end up making an herbal tea similar to the one the Rastas sell at Bob Marley's childhood home in Jamaica, that stuff was medicinal in every way!

    Someone gave me some CannaHoney to try. A teaspoon did me nice. All I really know is it was made with Everclear and honey. I'll try to get recipe.

    I like your sassy comment!

    I like your existentialism.

    Do you have any reipes for simaller or single batches. 5lb of honey for one month is a lot to consume!
