Cinnamon has been used as early as 2800 BC for anointment, embalming, and ailments (NCBI, 2015).
antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, antimicrobial, anticancer, lipid-lowering, and cardiovascular-disease-lowering compound, cinnamon has also been reported to have activities against neurological disorders, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.
When it comes to health, cinnamon is a great source of:
- Antioxidants: helps stop damage to cells that can cause diseases like cancer, heart disease, and more
- Linalool: a terpene with anti-inflammatory, anti-epileptic, antipsychotic properties
And honey is a wonderful:
- Anti-inflammatory: reduces inflammation or swelling
- Anti-bacterial: destroys bacteria. Because of this property, honey has been used to treat wounds
When shopping for honey, look for something local and as naturally processed as possible. Generally, the darker the honey is, the better quality it will be.
Please note: You should never give honey to a child under one year old.
About the Recipe
The holidays are inevitably filled with tons of dinner parties — many of which include turkey/ham, mashed potatoes, and lots of bread — so we wanted to come up with a few unique spins on the classic recipes that would set our meals apart.
Grandma's rolls have always been a staple at holidays, and they were always served with an array of toppings such as apple butter, luxury jams, and, of course, butter. We figured we'd fill out the collection with some fresh, cinnamon-infused honey butter. Plus, we were able to use the leftovers to make these incredible Hemp Seed Pumpkin Truffles for a "healthy" dessert.
- Break cinnamon sticks in half and place in herb pod
- Cut stick of butter in half & place in LEVO basin
- Set at 165°F for 1 hour
- Dispense into jar with honey & mix
- Serve with bread and enjoy!

Opportunities for Cannabinoid Infusion
To enhance this recipe with cannabinoids, consider substituting some of the honey in this recipe for CBD+Co's pure-CBD honey tincture.
1 tablespoon of CBD+Co's honey drops is approximately 125 mg CBD. When substituting infused honey for regular honey, be aware of how many mg CBD are in each portion of the recipe you are making. The standard dose of CBD is 10mg, but varies based on tolerance, reason for use, severity of pain, etc., and can be used at regular dosages as high as 50mg or more. We always recommend starting small and working up as needed to cut down on overall costs of using CBD as medicine.
CBD+Co is available online in all 50 states. Their CBD is responsibly derived from organic hemp plants grown in Colorado. Their honey is 100% natural, pesticide free, non-GMO and gluten free.
