Common CBD Honey Questions
Is Making CBD Honey at Home Easy?
While the process of making CBD may seem like a simple task, producing quality results is an entirely different matter. If you wish to use CBD honey, the best option by far is to purchase a product on the market.
Making CBD takes a vast amount of knowledge and isn’t for everyone. With so much information buzzing around, separating fact from fiction in the cannabis world is hazy at times. Here are some obstacles you may not expect at first.
Honey absorbs water-soluble solutions much more efficiently than crystalline or oil-based matter. To the untrained eye, unintentionally selecting the wrong choice is quite easy.
Secondly, potency is key, not just a money-saver. If you’re goal is to save money this simply isn’t the way. While CBD is effective and our bodies naturally welcome it, the correct dosage is crucial. If there isn’t enough concentration in your bloodstream, the effects will be negligible at best.
By choosing commercial products from a reputable source, you have the option to select the potency you need. This solves the first issue of improper dosing. The second issue lies in how much you take. While we all have tolerances, make sure to adhere to the label on the product.
Will My Pets Be Okay if They Eat CBD Honey?
Unfortunately, it depends on your pet. Dogs can safely tolerate CBD and honey without concern. Often, owners use honey as a means a delivery method to calm a dog down during thunderstorms or fireworks.
Alternatively, while cats tolerate CBD, some may have issues with honey. While it can improve immune systems in some feline friends, in others they may develop digestive problems.

After combining the ingredients, either stir in a packet of CBD sticks or stir in several drops of CBD honey tincture. Either way, once fully shaken or stirred, pour the liquid into the molds but don’t forget the sticks! On the other hand, try pouring them into an ice cube tray. This way, your next drink won’t become water down.
