The Benefits of Cannahoney

As the name suggest, cannahoney is honey that has been infused with cannabis oil. Honey has been revered for its healing properties for thousands of years. It contains vital enzymes, vitamins and minerals which are essential to a healthy life. Infused with cannabis, these two natural substances have powerful healing effects that include anti-bacterial & anti-inflammatory properties, treating coughs, wound care, insomnia, stress & anxiety, improving brain function and improving gut health. 

It’s also far more medically beneficial than smoking cannabis and cannahoney tastes a million times better than concentrated oil, that’s for sure! Who wouldn’t want to put that in their tea and drink it?

Me Time 

cannabis infused honeyI recently got to try a cannabis infused honey tincture from Stoned Tree Farm’s aptly named Me Time. It’s safe for all ages and is made with only food grade, organic ingredients.

The oil used to infuse the honey is made from organic cannabis grown by dedicated and experienced growers who have been carefully selected by Stoned Tree Farm. They also have their oils tested for pollutants and potency – so you always know what you are getting and you know it’s all goodness.

Their honey comes from hives that are set between mango, avo and nut farms and has a  smooth, dark and rich texture. 

The Me Time honey also comes in a nifty squeezy bottle. It’s perfect for keeping in your handbag or desk drawer so you can add it to your tea or coffee whenever you need.

When it comes to managing pain,  cannabis infused honey is the way to go. If you put a few drops of this tasty golden liquid under your tongue it works within around 15 mins and provides noticeable relief.  It’s  excellent for soothing stressed and anxious nerves and it even helps improve your mood. 

Easing Irritability and Tension

So, a few days ago, I found myself feeling extremely agitated and unfocused. I couldn’t concentrate for long on any one thing and everything was irritating me. This was making me tense and so my old nemesis, shoulder pain, began shooting excruciating jabs of pain out from my upper back, neck and right arm. This just added to my bad mood and so it took me a little while to realize that I was in the throws of some serious premenstrual tension.

Identifying the issue was all well and good but I had things to do and dragging myself aimlessly from one half-done thing to the next in a perpetual bad mood was helping no one. It was then that I remembered  the Me Time infused honey.

cannabis infused honey teaI put a few drops of the honey in my tea and I waited. But I was impatient, so I decided to put some of the infused honey under my tongue for quicker absorption and all I can say is – Yum! It was delicious – the familiar sweetness of the honey mingled pleasantly with the subtle yet distinct cannabis flavour and I had to stop myself from having more.

Within 15 minutes I could feel myself beginning to unwind. My first indication that the infused honey was working was when I finally completed a task in one sitting. My second sign was that I was no longer walking around under my own personal thunder cloud. I felt better. Not stoned but definitely uplifted. I could feel my whole body had relaxed and was no longer holding so tightly to the stress and agitation of before.

Despite being ever-so-slightly high, I got so much more done that afternoon, thanks to the infused honey.

Be it to manage pain and inflammation, help you sleep, manage anxiety and stress or simply to give your immune system a boost – you aren’t going to find another medicine that’s as effective and as delicious as this. So, make yourself a special cup of tea and enjoy your day!

Cannabis Terpenes and Cooking: How To Make Edibles Taste Like Your Favorite Cannabis Strain

Cannabis terpenes mean you can now make your edibles taste like your favorite strain of cannabis.

Pineapple Express infused cookies that actually taste like pineapple express (and not the familiar, generic flavour of chlorophyll)? Could it be possible? With one of the newest offerings in the cannabis market, cannabis terpenes mean there’s now a way to capture the flavor of your favorite strain in your edibles.

What are Terpenes

Terpenes are the fragrant oils that give cannabis its aromatic variety. They’re what give  Tangerine Dream it’s soft citrus notes , Sour Diesel its pungent fuel flavour and  Maui Wowie its sweet tropical aroma.

These oils are secreted in the flower’s sticky resin glands – the same ones that produce THC, CBD and other cannabinoids. And just like cannabinoids, terpenes bind to receptors in the brain and give rise to various effects – some can enhance your high while others can improve the pain reducing qualities of a particular strain – they each have their benefits. 

cannabis terpene, marijuana, dagga weed Food Grade Terpenes

Not all terpenes are food grade and therefore not all terpenes are edible. So, when I discovered a company that made food grade cannabis terpene profiles I couldn’t contain my excitement – finally I had a way of creating edibles that actually tasted like the strains I had used to infuse them with – oh the possibilities! True Terpene Profiles from Natural Terpenes produces liquid cannabis terpenes profiles which have been carefully blended to replicate the aromatic flavour of the strain they are named after. These terpenes don’t contain any THC but are known to assist your high and your health in various ways.

It comes in a little child-proof plastic container. Inside the container you get a tiny little bottle full of potent terpenes and a nifty little dropper to help you meter out your dose.

Choosing The Best Terpene Profile For You

 Choosing the Terpene Profile that is best for you can take a bit of research – different terpenes provide different benefits – some help you sleep, some help you eat, some help relieve pain, etc. Alternatively you can simply go with a strain you are familiar with or one who’s aroma you are really fond of.

For me it was Granddaddy Purple. I had some home-grown Granddaddy Purple (GDP) which I was enjoying immensely and which I wanted to use in some edibles. I’m also familiar with the aroma of GDP so I wanted to see if the liquid True Terpene Profile had successfully capture the floral notes of this strain and lastly, but most importantly, I wanted to try the effects of GDP”s blend of terpenes.

I was not disappointed. With light floral notes and a hint of sweetness the smell was intoxicating and I couldn’t wait to try it in food!

What Terpenes are in Granddaddy Purple

One of the dominant terpenes found in GDP is Linalool. (Say it, it’s fun!) Linalool provides those soft, fresh floral top notes – it also helps with the feeling of deep-ease and relaxation.

Linalool is used for a variety of reasons:

  • True Terpene Profiles Cannabis terpenes flavour flavor foodAs a sleep aid

  • A relaxant

  • As a treatment for anxiety

  • A pain reliever

  • As an anti-depressant

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • Anti-epileptic

  • AntiC-psychotic

The next most prevalent terpene in GDP is Humulene. Like Linalool and Myrcene (also part of the GDP terpene profile), Humulene is a powerful anti-inflammatory, is pain relieving, and has anti-cancer properties. It also works as an appetite suppressant, so it helps reduce the munchies.

Cooking with Cannabis Terpenes

cannabis infused icing sugar
One way to get the right cannabis flavour into your baked goods is to infuse the icing with the terpenes.
  • Don’t overheat the terpenes! The most important thing to remember about terpenes is that they are very delicate and can be destroyed easily with heat. For this reason I wouldn’t recommend using them in foods where they need to be added at the beginning of the heating process, as with cookies or cakes., as the wonderful aroma will probably not survive the baking. 
  • Raw foods, salad dressings and sauces are all great places to use Cannabis terpenes in your edibles or, alternatively you can add the terpenes at the very end of cooking once the heat has been turned off.
  • Dilution is essential! It’s a very concentrated solution so you need to dilute it. Think essential oils and you’ll get an idea of the potency of these profiles. If you don’t dilute it sufficiently it can have an overwhelming flavor that is too strong to be pleasant – always start with one drop and work from there.

Cannabis Infused Terpene Flavoured Chocolate Recipe

Infuse your chocolates with the delicate terpene profiles of your favourite strains.

I love, love chocolate so it’s no surprise that’s it’s also my favourite medible. I decided to try infusing chocolate with cannabis extract and to flavour it with the GDP terpene profile. The combination results in a delicate mixing of the GDP floral undertones and the rich chocolate flavour. Perfect as an after-dinner dessert.


Dilluted Terpenes

1 drops of True Terpene Profile of your choice

25 gram coconut oil

Add one drop of your chosen food grade Terpene Profile into the coconut oil and mix thoroughly. You won’t not use all of this for this recipe but it will keep in a sealed container in the fridge.

Cannabis Flavoured Chocolates

100 gram melting chocolate

1 tsp of Terpene infused coconut oil

2 rice grains FECO (add more or less depending on your personal tolerance)


Gently melt the chocolate – use the double boil method to prevent the chocolate from overheating.

Once the chocolate is melted switch off the heat and add the FECO oil and the terpene infused coconut oil and stir in very gently until thoroughly mixed. (Don’t stir too vigorously as this can also damage the terpenes – they are a volatile bunch!)

Pour into moulds and refrigerate until they set.

Then eat. Wait. Relax. Enjoy.

Why Coconut Oil?

Coconut oil is great for you for a multitude of reasons – great at reducing bad cholesterol and high in saturated fats – which makes it excellent for extracting both THC and CBD’s. And when you combine cannabinoids with fat, the fat actually helps the cannabinoids travel through your digestive and assist with better absorption of the different properties.

For more on how to find the right dosage for you, click here


500 ml Pure Virgin Organic Coconut oil

50 g Dry Cannabis

(Roughly 100 ml of coconut oil to 10 grams of powdered cannabis)

NOTE: I do not recommend decarboxylating the plant material unless you are specifically making oil to treat cancer where a highr THC ratio is required. For all other conditions no decarboxylating is required as you want to maximize your CBD’s and the heat from decarboxylating can destroy CBD’s. You will still convert THC-A into THC through the extraction process.


  1. Separate the flowers from seeds and stalks. You can use a sieve to help with this process. Pull out any larger stalks and put the dried flower into a sieve and rub it through – the seeds and smaller stalks will be held back and the plant matter will fall through. 

  2. Break your cannabis up or use scissors to chop it finely.

  3. Gently melt the coconut oil – do not let it come to the boil.

  4. Double boil: Use a large pot with water in it as the base. Put the smaller pot with the coconut oil into this pot. The water in the bottom pot will help keep the coconut oil from getting overheated.Water has a boiling point of 100C which helps to keep the coconut oil at this temperature too.

  5. Use only enough oil to cover the cannabis amount used, work on 100 ml of oil to 10 grams of powdered cannabis for a good quality.

  6. Once the oil is melted, add the chopped cannabis. The oil must never bubble or boil therefore you have to keep a constant eye on the pot, stirring at regular intervals.

  7. If the oil starts to bubble reduce the heat immediately even if this means switching off for a while this is no problem – the oil must never boil or bubble.

  8. Continue with this process for six hours always checking the heat and keeping it on constant low heat, using a wooden spoon to stir at frequent intervals.

  9. Six hours may feel long but it produces the best possible oil.

  10. After six hours turn the heat off and let the oil cool. There is no harm in switching off and continuing after a few hours if time or circumstances do not permit, even if you are cooking on a fire.

  11. Once the oil has cooled but is still fluid strain it through a muslin cloth, stocking or a fine mesh sieve using the back of a teaspoon to press the oil through. It is much easier to use the cloth or stocking which you can secure over a bowl with an elastic band.

  12. Store the oil in glass jar and keep it in a cool dry place.

  13. Image result for coconut infused cannabis oil

    Coconut oil naturally solidifies in cooler temperatures and all you have to do is place the glass jar in some boiling warm water and let it melt. Always remember to open the glass jar before you put it in boiling water as it will crack and many patients have lost their valuable medicine in this way. You can also use your Cannabis Coconut oil in the solid form as butter or swallow it solid with water, like a pill.

  14. Do not leave the oil on the heat unattended – you will damage the cannabinoids and lose potency. Even street marijuana is expensive and this is a valuable lesson learned.

Coconut oil has a smoke point of 171 degrees Celsius. At 100 degrees and less it cannot produce any dangerous fumes because it will not create smoke at this temperature. So this recipe can be followed while cooking on gas, electricity, even fire, and anyone can make their own medicine with this recipe.
