CBD or cannabis light
CBD or cannabidiol is a molecule from the large family of cannabinoids. It is found in the hemp plant among the 500 other cannabinoids, with a higher or lower rate depending on the variety.
Being more and more in demand in a medical setting, we now find hemp plants with a high level of CBD. These plants are also referred to as wellness hemp plants. It is thus possible to find therapeutic cannabis seeds to meet the needs of the consumer.
CBD, legal cannabis?
Cannabidiol is a legal substance in many countries as it is used in a therapeutic setting. CBD has no psychoactive effects unlike THC which is prohibited.
In France, the marketing of CBD has been officially authorized since November 2017 by an announcement made by the Ministry of Health, a decision taken on the basis that this substance is neither addictive nor toxic.

Honey with cannabis, a miraculous combination
There are many ways to use cannabinoids in food and reap its multiple benefits. For example, CBD can be incorporated into cake recipes, chocolate, chewing gum, but the best known recipe is cannabis honey.
Contrary to what one might think, honey with cannabis is not the fruit of bees having gathered pollen from hemp beds. Nor does it result from honey in which cannabis has been macerated.
The cannabis honey recipe
Cannabis honey does not result from a simple mixture of honey and cannabis as one might often think. In fact, cannabis does not dissolve in water, but only in oils, so cannabis honey is a mixture of fatty substances and honey.
How to prepare cannabis honey?
It is entirely possible to make your own cannabis honey at home. You will need honey, cannabis, a CBD oil of your choice, and some cooking utensils. How to proceed ? In particular, you will need:
- A cup of natural honey, preferably good quality;
- A 10ml bottle of CBD oil;
- A saucepan that withstands heat well;
- A glass jar with a lid.
First, put the expected amount of honey in the glass jar and then put the lid on without tightening it too much to allow the honey to escape. Then fill the pot with hot water, then put the pot in the pot, the water should cover about three quarters of the pot.
Let the jar stand in hot water for 3-5 minutes to loosen the honey. Once removed, add CBD oil to the jar and stir everything together then put the lid back on. Let the mixture cool and tighten the lid. It is advisable to leave the mixture in a dark and cool place.
If the CBD oil ever separates from the honey, put the jar back in hot water again for several minutes, remove it and stir the mixture again. It is not recommended to put the jar of honey in boiling water, as this will decrease the beneficial compounds of it.
