Let’s face it, making infusions feels like a long process, and can often be a bit of a mess. That is why I suggest making larger batches of your master infusions then using them as the base to infuse all sorts of other things. This recipe for canna-honey is my favorite– it blends canna-coconut oil, a wonderful master infusion, with honey, a voila! You have infused honey! While you can also slowly infuse honey with flowers, the fats of the coconut oil infusion are particularly effective when it comes to absorption of THC. So here you have it, a simple and quick way to infuse honey with cannabis.
1 cup high-quality unfiltered raw honey, either locally harvested or a known medicinal honey, like manuka -- thick, creamy honey will emulsify with the oil the best
1⁄4 cup/2 ounces canna-coconut oil
- Pour your cup of honey in to a microwave-safe small mixing bowl. Warm slightly in 15-second increments in the microwave until it is stirrable (a must for the thicker, creamier honey I suggest you use for this recipe.) Melt the canna-coconut oil, just until liquified, also in the microwave in increments.
- Using a silicone spatula or a whisk, stir the honey while you pour in the oil. Continue to whisk or stir until all of the oil has blended with the honey, about 1-2 minutes. Stir a few more times over the next 10-15 minutes as it cools, then while it is still liquid, pour it in to a clean 12-16 ounce jar.
- Labeling the jar on all sides so anyone who comes across it will know it is infused. Include the date and any other important details.
- Store your canna-honey in a cool dark place at room temperature for a week if you are using it regularly, or in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
