When we hear someone talking about hash honey – we can’t help ourselves from throwing out some rhymes. Whether they’re talking about dribbling it over their morning cereal, into a coffee, or onto an ice-cream, it’s bound to get us writing a short THC jingle.
But, how does one get their hands on the hash honey? Well, for now, you’ll need to make it. Before you charge into your kitchen throwing your crisp cannabis into any old mixture, you’ll need to put your weed through a decarboxylation process.
A quick fact, you can’t actually get high from eating raw, unheated weed, so here’s how you release that THC.
Preheat your oven to around 120°C and place your cannabis on a baking tray for 40 minutes. The heads/flowers shouldn’t burn. Make sure that you also rotate them to evenly cook them.
When this step has been completed you’re ready to get that HONEY! If you’re really lucky your mother-in-law has a few beehives. If not, hit up your most local purveyor of organic honey. You will need a few items to complete the infusion process along with the honey, like:
- A glass jar;
- And a slow cooker.
Grab around 15g of treated cannabis in a cheesecloth and tie it closed. Place this cheesecloth into a jar and pour the honey in.
Now place the jar into a slow cooker, the jar should be surrounded by water. Then place the lid on the slow cooker. Make sure to set the cooker to low and cook it for around 8 hours.
Also, be sure to check on the jar every 2 to 3 hours to release the built-up pressure. When the time is up, remove the jar from the water, be warned it will be hot, remove the cheesecloth from the jar and squeeze out the honey.
If you keep the plant matter in the cheesecloth you can also use it in a tea. For the honey, place the lid on the jar and store in a cool, dark place.
Now you have Hash Honey of your own.
