Cannabis-infused Honey (or CannaHoney) can be a great addition to your Cannabis Edibles Recipes. While CannaButter can be great in baked goods and Canna Oil allows you to expand your menu to savory dishes, CannaHoney lets you add a little sweet cannabis to nearly any dish - like your morning oatmeal or afternoon cup of tea.
This simple recipe for Cannabis Honey is easy, no-smell and utilizes your crockpot - so you can make it anywhere you have an outlet. Follow the instructions below to get cooking.
How to Make Cannabis Honey (CannaHoney)
First, You Need to Decarb Your Weed
The first thing you'll need in order to get started is decarbed weed, aka decarboxylated or activated cannabis.
Don't skip this first step. It's a must in order for your cannabis edibles to actually get you high. And luckily, it's a super simple process.
Now You're Ready to Make Cannabis Honey
First, you'll need to wrap ¼ ounce of decarbed weed in a cheesecloth and tie with string. As you can't strain your honey to remove the marijuana after cooking, this will keep the pieces of weed from getting into your honey.
Pour 1 ⅛ cups of honey into a slow cooker or crockpot, and add your cheesecloth of pot. (This recipe also works with maple syrup and molasses.)
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, stirring every couple of hours to move the cheesecloth around.
When finished, remove your bundle of marijuana and let cool, then squeeze to remove every last drop of honey.
Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 6 months.

Frequently Asked Questions about Cannabis Honey (CannaHoney)
Since not everyone has made cannabis edibles recipes with cannabis honey, it tends to come with several questions. Here are answers to a few of the most popular questions that I receive.
Will Cannabis Honey Work in Tea?
Yes! That's really the main reason that I make CannaHoney - to steep in my tea anytime I need a quick pick-me-up. You can see all of our CannaHoney recipes here, but feel free to experiment to add a little CannaHoney to "sweeten" your existing recipes.
Will Cooking with Cannabis Honey Smell?
We get this question all the time. As long as you decarbed your weed properly, you shouldn't notice an overwhelming odor when making Cannabis Honey. In fact, we noticed zero smell when making it in our crockpot. But if you have concerns about the smell of cooking with Cannabis, you can click here to read more.
Which is Better - CannaButter, Canna Oil or CannaHoney?
This completely depends on what recipe you're cooking and what you're in the mood for. While you'll probably find that the more common cannabis edibles recipes stick with CannaButter, we find that Canna Oil is just as effective and in fact preferred for some recipes (like Cannabis Chicken Chili).
CannaHoney is fun because it is more standalone than the others in terms of needing to add additional ingredients to cut the taste of the pot. We find it to be a lot more flexible in terms of quickly adding a little "something" to make your recipe an edible.
Can CannaHoney spoil or mold?
Eventually. CannaHoney can go bad. We recommend storing it in an airtight container in a cool, dark place and use within 6 months.
Can Cannabis Honey kill a dog?
Technically, yes. BUT it would take a LOT of weed to kill Fido. Like - a LOT of it. If you're not using commercial-sized equipment to make your CannaHoney, then you're probably safe - although we don't recommend feeding it to your dog.
Can I put Cannabis Honey in the Microwave?
We don't recommend making CannaHoney in the microwave (we prefer our low and slow method), but you can put it in the microwave when you're using it in your cannabis edibles recipes.
