CBD-infused honey is gaining popularity due to its health benefits. Some health food stores and supplement shops now carry their own CBD honey. Cafes are picking up on the trend and adding hemp-derived CBD honey teas to their menus.
Natural honey is pretty nutritious on its own, but it becomes healthier if you add cannabidiol (CBD) to it. Studies show that CBD can help balance the internal regulatory system called the endocannabinoid system.
And the best part: even though CBD is a cannabis derivative, it does not induce a high. CBD derived from hemp contains only 0.3% of the high inducing component called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
CBD and THC are two of least 113 cannabinoids identified in cannabis, but they are different from each other. It’s like the difference between yogurt and butter. They’re both made from milk but have different uses and nutritional qualities.
Honey is the perfect partner for CBD and can help maintain health. This is because it is one of the most easily digested forms of carbohydrates.
Moreover, like regular honey, CBD honey tastes great. You can enjoy it on its own, mix it into beverages, or pour some over your favorite foods.
CBD oil is a natural source of vitamins, essential fatty acids, magnesium, and calcium. Honey, on the other hand, is full of antioxidants.
On a grander level, users say CBD oil can relieve the symptoms of a number of diseases. These include epilepsy, diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. Researchers are conducting clinical trials to prove the value of the power oil. In fact, a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory committee recently recommended approval for a CBD drug to reduce epileptic seizures in the US.
Other than honey, CBD is popping up in everyday items like skin-care products, lemonades, coffee, and chocolates. According to The Hemp Business Journal, the CBD market will grow to $2.1 billion in consumer sales by 2020. They expect $450 million of those sales to come from hemp-based sources.
