Man Trains Bees to Create Naturally Infused Honey From Cannabis Resin
French beekeeper and cannabis enthusiast is working with bees to create delicious “cannahoney”, otherwise known as cannabis honey.
Nicolas, also known as Nicolas TrainerBees, has trained his bees to collect sugar from fruit instead of flowers, and resin from cannabis plants. They use this resin to produce cannabis honey that has many healthy beneficial qualities.
Nicolas came up with the idea back in 2006 and he has spent time observing and working with his bees to create the honey of his dreams. In 2013, he managed to get results from his training. The bees use the resin as propolis and through this, they create honey that has the same effects as cannabis. The ‘cannahoney’ has a delicious taste and a floral aroma. Depending on the variety of cannabis resin used by the bees, the honey can be light green, white, or yellow. This honey has the potential to transform how people use cannabis both medically and recreationally.
There were skeptics who worried that the bees’ consumption of cannabis resin would harm them. Nicolas waited two years until the project could rule out this possibility. He was then able to demonstrate that the plants have no negative impact on the insects at all. The bees are in no way affected by the cannabinoids that they use to create the honey because the bees do not have an endocannabinoid system.
Nicolas now has 30 beehives and he uses many of them for his cannabis honey project. Due to strict marijuana laws within the United States, he is forced to grow his plants far from his home and has to transport them close to the hives during necessary periods so that the bees can take advantage of their new “pollen” and create the honey.
Nicolas has medicated with cannabis since a very young age when he was told by teachers that he was too hyperactive for a school setting. Cannabis has allowed him to direct his energy in a healthy and productive way and he is a huge advocate for medical marijuana.
Nicolas interacts with his followers through social media networks and publishes many research studies about the medical benefits of cannabis. He dedicates all of his time to this endeavor and works alone with his wife to create this delicious cannabis honey.
Many people are wondering when they will be able to get some of the ‘cannahoney’ Nicolas has created. He is still working on a more detailed analysis to determine all of the properties of this honey before it goes on the market. Nicolas says that the people who have tried his honey to help relieve anxiety, have had wonderful results.
