CBD Infused Honey: What Are the Benefits?
In recent years, CBD a compound derived from the cannabis plant, has gained a lot of popularity and attention. Medically, studies have shown CBD to be extremely useful in the treatment of many ailments, including:
- chronic pain
- post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- epilepsy and seizures
CBD is highly versatile, extracted from cannabis plants, and infused into a variety of products, including oils and ointments, tinctures and teas, and capsules and food products. CBD is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant that provides healthful benefits without causing patients to feel "high," the primary function of THC. Without these psychoactive effects, CBD offers excellent potential for the treatment of a myriad of medical issues and ailments, whether physical, mental or emotional.
One of the products Sunny Grove CBD is excited to offer is our CBD infused honey. Combining the beneficial attributes of raw, local honey and CBD creates a product that offers the best of both worlds, a tasty treat with a plethora of healthful applications!
Raw Honey vs. Manufactured Honey
Honey has long been a staple of American cuisine. Extremely versatile, honey has found its way to nearly every food and beverage on the market at one time or another. It can be used to add a splash of sweetness or as a primary ingredient in dishes and drinks, and some even eat honey by itself as a snack. However, the honey most commonly found on supermarket shelves and in American homes is a manufactured product, unfortunately lacking in many of the beneficial properties inherent to honey.
During filtering and manufacturing processes, many of these healthful components, such as amino acids, antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals, are removed or cooked out of the honey. In many cases, sugars and artificial sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup are added to these processed honey products, creating a honey that is actually far less healthy than its original form. It is crucial to understand these distinctions, as they affect the efficacy of the honey in producing its healthful benefits.
Manufacturing strips honey of many of its healthful properties; in contrast, raw honey is not tampered with, providing all the healthy benefits natural to the delicious substance. Studies have shown raw honey provides a myriad of medicinal attributes, including:
- treating or preventing high blood pressure and hypertension
- maintaining healthy cholesterol
- general medical applications
- improved wound healing
- treatment of coughs
- treating gastrointestinal ailments
- fighting fungal infections
- anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant uses
- treating or preventing cardiovascular issues
How To Use CBD Infused Honey
Hemp honey is a great alternative for first time CBD users who don't like the flavor of the oil but still want all of the benefits that full-spectrum CBD has to offer. We recommend starting with one to two teaspoons daily depending on the ailment being treated. Not a fan of honey? Many of our customers mix in a teaspoon with their hot tea or on a slice of toast to help mask the taste.
