How to Make Your Own Cannabis Honey

Here’s a secret. Cannabis honey is actually really easy to make at home. If you’ve ever made cannabutter, the procedure for making cannabis honey is similar, however, keep in mind that it tends to be a little stickier. Another thing to keep in mind? You’ll need to decarboxylate your cannabis in order to convert THCA into THC. Click here to learn how to decarb your cannabis.

What You’ll Need:

  • Crockpot or Slow Cooker
  • Decarboxylated Cannabis (1-ounce decarbed cannabis to 1 cup honey is a standard measure, but it is up to you how potent you want your honey to be. For less potent honey, use less cannabis. For more potent honey, feel free to go big and use over an ounce.)
  • Two Cups Honey (It’s best to use organic, raw, unfiltered honey for the highest-quality results. If you can’t get your hands on any, you’ll be good using regular honey.)
  • Cheesecloth
  • Glass Jar with a Tightly Fitting Lid

Directions:

  • Put your cannabis in the cheesecloth and tie it with a string or rubber band.
  • Put the cannabis-filled cheesecloth in the glass jar and pour in two cups honey.
  • Put the full jar in the crockpot (lid off) and add enough water so it’s above the honey but not fully covered.
  • Place the lid on the crockpot and cook on its lowest temperature for 8 hours.
  • After 8 hours, remove the honey jar from the crockpot, ensuring that you’re wearing oven mitts because the jar will be hot.
  • Allow the honey to completely cool and then remove the cheesecloth. Squeeze the cheesecloth into the honey jar to make sure you get it all.
  • Once completely cool, put the tightly fitting lid on your glass jar and store either in the refrigerator or in a cool, dry place like a pantry cupboard.
