Honey has been used in holistic healing for thousands of years.
When it comes to health, honey is a wonderful:
Anti-inflammatory: reduces inflammation or swelling
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.

Opportunities for Cannabinoid Infusion
If you'd like to enhance this recipe with cannabinoids, consider using one of the products below. We recommend using between 5-30mg of CBD per serving, depending on your needs and body weight (typically 1-5mg of CBD per 10 lbs of body weight, learn more about dosing here). Remember to always start low and go slow when it comes to cannabinoids, and be sure to read our CBD Safety article and talk to your doctor before incorporating something new into your routine.
To enhance this recipe with cannabinoids, consider substituting some or all of the honey in each recipe for Potli’s CBD honey.
Potli CBD honey is a full-spectrum product made from hemp grown in Kentucky without pesticides, fertilizers, or chemicals. Their CO2 extracted CBD is then blended with Grade A wildflower honey harvested by hand from their own bees in the Bay Area of California. This female-owned company is passionate about “empowering you to experience and enjoy life your way” by creating products designed to help you live a high-functioning life.
1 tablespoon of Potli’s CBD honey is approximately 10 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 condition, 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.
