Cannaceutics is happy to announce we have added organic medicated honey and coconut oil to our products on offer! How cute is this guy?
Our organic cannabis honey comes in a 6-ounce “honey bear” container. As with most of our edibles, Cannaceutics makes its cannahoney with whole cannabis plant extract, and the oil is emulsified (mixed in) using lecithin, a natural food additive that ensures that the cannabis oil does not separate from the honey. Using cannabis extract rather than infusing the honey with flower buds kicks up the THC content and helps the honey to metabolize efficiently in our bodies, which means it’s very effective for pain! Our honey contains 318mgs of THC and 36.6mgs of CBD for the full bear. That breaks down to about 10mgs of THC per teaspoon and there are 32 teaspoons (doses) in the container. You can use the honey in the exact same ways you use non-medicated honey; for sweetening tea or coffee, on toast or in a peanut butter and honey sandwich, or you can substitute the honey for other sweeteners like white sugar (be sure to look up the equivalents for subbing a liquid sweetener: 2T of honey will generally not produce the same result as 2T of granulated sugar, especially if you’re baking.)
There are plenty of benefits to honey even when it’s non-medicated. Some people apply honey directly to the skin for wound healing, burns, and sunburn, or as part of a facial mask. Medicated honey might be even more effective for wound healing, since cannabis has shown promise in reducing acne and skin irritations like eczema. Honey has also been shown to reduce H.pylori bacteria, the cause of stomach ulcers.
Our new organic medicated coconut oil comes in a 3-ounce jar that contains 215mgs of THC and 25mgs of CBD. That’s about 36mgs of THC per tablespoon, or about 12mgs per teaspoon. The oil can also be used exactly as you would use regular coconut oil; most people use it for cooking or baking, but you can also toss a tablespoon into a smoothie for extra nutrition and medication, or even do a medicated version of bulletproof coffee, if you have a high-speed or immersion blender. Coconut oil can be used for an all-over moisturizer; it aids in wound healing and may lessen scarring. Combined with a few drops of an essential oil, it could even be used as a cannabis-infused massage oil!
