Y’all, I went down the honey hole!
Holy sweetness. Who knew honey infused with CBD was so awesome?! I mean CBD alone is just plain awesome, but combine it with the long list of honey health benefits, and you’ve got a home run!
So how should you use CBD honey to get the most benefits? Below are 13 ways to use your liquid gold for health and happiness.
13 Ways To Use CBD Honey
1) DIY Sports Drink
Need a refreshing pick-me-up to get you through a long workout? Try this DIY sports drink recipe. In a blender, mix:
- ¼ cup of lime juice
- ¼ cup of lemon juice
- 2 cups of water
- ⅛ teaspoon of sea salt
- 2 tablespoons of CBD honey
2) Tea Sweetener
People have been mixing tea and regular honey together for a long time. It’s a great way to sweeten a bitter drink.
But just imagine all the extra health benefits you could get if you added CBD honey instead.
3) Peanut Butter
Making your own peanut butter is super easy, not to mention healthy and delicious. To boost the health benefits even more, mix up your own batch of CBD honey-based peanut butter.
Simply add CBD honey to your existing peanut butter recipe and you’re all set!
4) Salad Dressing
Skip the salad dressing aisle at the supermarket, save some money, and enjoy a delicious and nutritious alternative instead. Simply mix equal parts:
- Balsamic vinegar
- Olive oil
Add salt, pepper, and herbs to your liking and you’ve got a tasty salad dressing for any situation.
5) A Spoonful Of Sugar
Who’s to say you have to eat honey IN other foods?
Mary Poppins — was right when she sang, “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” In this case, we’re just dishing up a spoonful of CBD honey all by itself for the natural health benefits honey has to offer and the over-the-moon medicinal value that CBD brings to the table.
If you need a quick snack to get your motor running — or to help you power through until your next meal, try a spoonful of sugar in the form of some delicious CBD honey.
6) CBD Honey And Water During Your Workout
The CBD won’t make your exercise any easier, but the honey will!
Mix a spoonful of CBD honey into your water bottle (you may need to warm the water first, but certainly not IN the bottle), for a great mid-exercise boost.
The glucose in the honey prevents your muscles from getting sore and allows you to push just a little bit further or faster in your workout.
You can also try eating a spoonful of CBD honey all by itself before starting your exercise.
Honey is chocked full of healthy sugars (fructose, glucose, and sucrose) — not the bad stuff (high-fructose corn sugar) that comes in pretty much everything these days — and digests slowly in your stomach.
With a pre-workout bit o’ CBD honey, your body has access to a steady stream of glucose that results in an all-natural energy boost to keep you going.
Topical & Medicinal Uses
Harness the power of CBD honey with these topical and medicinal uses.
7) Make Your Own Face Mask
Say goodbye to dry skin with this simple face mask recipe. Mix 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of CBD honey. Apply the mixture to your face and let it sit for 20 minutes.
Rinse with lukewarm water and pat your face dry with a soft towel.
8) Relieve Acid Reflux
Suffering from acid reflux? Quench the fire with a teaspoon of CBD honey once per day. And don’t feel like you have to stop when the acid reflux is gone. CBD honey is so safe you can take every day.
9) Treat A Hangover
Feeling a bit hungover after a night out with friends? Consume some CBD honey (in a cup of tea) for a bit of relief.
The antioxidants in CBD honey neutralize the toxins left over after a serious bender, and the natural fructose helps break down alcohol into harmless byproducts.
10) Create A Topical Antibiotic
Got a cut? Dab on a bit of CBD honey. You’ll absorb some CBD through your skin and get the antibiotic benefits of honey all at the same time.
11) Relieve Allergies
Local honey (honey made by bees in your area) is amazing for getting rid of the symptoms of seasonal allergies. Mix up your CBD honey with a local variety, and then consume a tablespoon daily for real relief.
12) Dry Up Acne
Want to get rid of those pesky red spots on your face? Wash with CBD honey for blemish-free skin. CBD honey cleanses your skin without stripping away new cells and normalizes sebum production.
13) Tackle Gingivitis
To treat or prevent gingivitis, apply a dab of CBD honey to your gum line every day. The honey will kill the bacteria while the CBD will be absorbed into your bloodstream.
