  • Serves 1 People
  • Calories 40 kcal


  • 2.33 grams Ground Cannabis Flower
  • 1/2 Cup Honey


  1. Decarboxylate your flower Prepare your cannabis by decarboxylating it first, this will activate the THC and/or CBD that will later be steeped in honey. Preheat your oven to 220 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread your cannabis over the parchment and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 22-30 minutes, keeping an eye on it, as every oven is different. When finished it should be lightly toasted, not burnt.
  2. Infuse the honey with the flower. Add the bud and honey into a double boiler, a slow cooker, or your sous vide and infuse over low heat, or 85C/185F for 2 hours.
  3. Strain over a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth. “NOTE: Use disposable kitchen gloves and flexible spatulas to handle this material. Handling this material with your bare hands can lead to an undesired experience as THC infused honey can be absorbed through skin.” (Chef Korby)
  4. Store the finished cannabis infused honey in a mason jar in the refrigerator. The potency of the honey will depend on your bud’s THC and CBD content. Test out with a teaspoon and dose accordingly for what is right for you.


This recipe yields 24 teaspoons.Dose appropriately! When using your medicated honey in a recipe, remember to dose per person/serving. If the recipe calls for more honey, be sure to use regular honey. Fats or alcohol helps with THC and CBD absorption, but it is not a necessity. If you prefer, you can add a tablespoon of coconut oil to the finished honey and whip in a blender. Alternatively you can pair the honey with any dish that has fats
