Our honey and the products our bees create are our passion. It is, without a doubt, a time-intensive labor of love to provide our customers with raw, extra virgin, and unfiltered honey in 27 varieties. In addition to our original honey, we also have a line of honey infusions and nuts. Today, I want to highlight one variety in particular—100% pure honey, infused with CBD oil.
The term “CBD oil” has flooded the marketplace in a variety of ways. However, many do not know exactly what it is or what it is used for. CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring chemical compound from the cannabis plant. It is a native substance that is used in products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of calming and relaxation. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it is not psychoactive.
Is CBD Legal?
CBD is one of the (more than) 400 ingredients found in cannabis plants. Common cannabis plants are marijuana and hemp. Since marijuana is not federally legal, most companies extract CBD from hemp. Because of the 2019 Farm Bill (passed in 2018) CBD is legal to buy, sell, and consume in all 50 states.
In fact, 17 states (Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming) have passed legislation to specifically legalize CBD based on the promising medical and clinical research studies that show evidence of aiding children and adults with epilepsy and seizures, in addition to alleviating other conditions.
Benefits of Consuming Honey with CBD Oil
The main purposes of our local, raw, and unfiltered honey infused with CBD oil is to use it as an immune booster. How does it work, you might ask? When we take CBD oil infused in honey, the oil is immediately absorbed into our bloodstream; this means it avoids becoming diluted as it passes through our digestive system, allowing the full oil dosage to have a positive impact on our health.
It is also said that honey infused with CBD oil can help us with the following:
Honey Infused with CBD Oil Created at Santa Fe Honey Salon
Each half pint jar (8 fl oz) contains 400 mg of full spectrum hemp extract and each tablespoon contains 25 mg of full spectrum hemp extract. Santa Fé Honey Salon’s NM Mountain Wildflower honey infused with CBD oil is also full of cannabinoids, terpenes, and naturally occurring enzymes.
Similar to all of our other 27 honey varieties, our honey infused with CBD oil is not pasteurized or micro filtered - omitting this allows our pure honey to retain all the health benefits mentioned above. We produce small batches, and all of our jars are handpacked gravity-fed.
