Raw CBD-Infused Honey & How To Use It In 5 "Recipes"
By J Gordon Curtis
CBD Honey is one of the best ways to introduce CBD into your daily life with minimal effort. Through the simple addition of a teaspoon in your morning tea or coffee, you can get your daily need for CBD out of the way. But what is raw CBD infused honey and how do you use it?
In this article, we’ll cover what makes raw CBD-infused honey better than other options and where you can find it. While honey is something you can easily drizzle on top of a dish or beverage, it’s also a fun addition to many recipes.
Not to mention the fact that it’s a great alternative to other syrups or sugars that are less nutritious. Since it’s so exciting to work cook with and incorporate into your life, we’ve included 5 recipes with raw CBD-infused honey that you can try out for yourself.
Your body is a temple, make sure you’re taking care of yourself!
What is Raw CBD-Infused Honey?
Raw honey differs greatly from the typical store-bought (or even many craft) varieties. Most honey that is available to the public goes through the process of pasteurization.
Heating the honey to kill unwanted bacteria and yeast is helpful for the total lifespan of the product. Additionally, it has a positive effect on the texture and appearance of the honey but that’s not all there is to honey.
While killing off unwanted parts of the honey, producers are also burning off nutrient-rich elements of honey. The resulting product from pasteurization, though it looks and stores better, is not as beneficial for the consumer.
With Perfect Plant™’s Raw, Single-Source honey, we take this unpasteurized honey and add premium CBD isolate to the mix.
Where to Buy CBD Infused Honey Online
In addition to using raw honey, we also use single-source honey. That means that each jar comes from a single farm at a single point in time.
Currently, we source this honey from Johnson’s Honey Farm in Franklin TN making this a truly local product. Whether you buy your CBD honey from us or someone else, make sure that you’re emphasizing the reporting above all else.
As an unregulated product, CBD products can vary wildly in both quality and efficacy. Though the government doesn’t regulate companies to do much, make sure to go with someone like Perfect Plant who goes above and beyond in their reporting.
5 Different CBD "recipes" for Perfect Plant CBD Honey
Add CBD to your everyday routine through these recipes:
CBD Balsamic Vinagrette
This salad dressing is as easy as it is delicious. Consuming your CBD with a nice, healthy salad is a double-positive slam dunk. The sweet honey with the balsamic vinaigrette offers a sweet note to a tangy dressing.
To make this, simply mix equal parts CBD honey, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil together. Consume immediately or store in the fridge.
CBD-Infused Overnight Oats
Start your morning off right with a nutritious breakfast and your daily amount of CBD. Overnight oats are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast to kick off your day and keep you powering through.
Mix your milk of choice (almond, oat, soy, or regular) in a 1.5:1 ratio with oats in a mason jar. So, if you have 1 cup of oats, you should do 1 ½ cups of milk. Then, add in a tablespoon of chia seeds, some blueberries, a tablespoon of peanut butter, and/or whatever other toppings sound good.
When finished, drizzle a nice layer of CBD honey on the top and store it in your fridge overnight.
CBD Matcha Latte
As a stronger form of green tea, matcha offers a lot of benefits as a coffee and caffeine substitute. When you pair it with CBD, you’re really starting your day off on the right foot.
Add one teaspoon of matcha powder to a cup of hot water and add one teaspoon of CBD honey. Mix in ¼ cup of the milk of your choice (I prefer oat since it’s naturally a bit sweeter) and stir thoroughly.
CBD-Infused Honey Strawberry Lemonade
This recipe calls for a two-part process. First, your CBD honey will go into a simple syrup with strawberries and then you will make the lemonade. The simple syrup also makes a great addition to carbonated water or a juicy cocktail.
Directions for the Simple Syrup
Combine 1 cup of CBD honey with 1 cup of water in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir gently until the honey melts into the water completely and raise the temperature to medium-high heat.
Stir in a cup of sliced strawberries and bring the mixture to a simmer. Leave on heat for another 3-4 minutes until the strawberries begin to break down.
Strain the mixture through a sieve and let it cool.
Directions for the Strawberry Lemonade
Mix ¾ cup of lemon juice (freshly squeezed if possible,) 4 cups of water, and ¾ cup of your simple syrup mixture. Add another ¼ cup of strawberries (frozen or fresh) and let chill in the refrigerator.
Serve over ice.
CBD Honey Cornbread
This recipe is a bit more involved but the results are worth it. Think about capping off your dinner with a delicious, relaxing slice of cornbread.
What You’ll Need
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- ¼ cup sugar
- 3 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- ¼ cup canola oil
- ¼ cup CBD honey
Preheat the oven to 400° and combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and add the cream, oil, and honey together well.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well together. Beat until it becomes a smooth batter and pour it into a square baking pan.
Bake for 20-25 minutes. You can test how done they are by inserting a toothpick into the middle. If it comes out clean, they’re ready to go.
Allow to cool and serve.
