Both CBD and honey on their own have long been used for their health and wellness properties. It should come as no surprise then that when you combine the two, you can potentially see numerous benefits. That is why we created our Full Spectrum CBD Honey Sticks! In this article we will discuss what CBD honey sticks are, the benefits of CBD honey, how to use CBD honey sticks, and we’ll also provide a couple of fun recipes to help add CBD honey sticks to your daily routine.
What are CBD Honey Sticks?
First, let's talk about what CBD honey is. CBD honey is simply regular honey infused with CBD. That’s it! We mix locally-sourced organic clover honey with our organic full spectrum hemp extract, the same hemp extract found in our other products, and package it in convenient-to-use sticks. CBD honey sticks are healthy, perfect for on-the-go use, and can be incorporated into many drinks or meals making it a great delivery method for your CBD needs. Our CBD honey sticks come in a pack of 5 and each honey stick contains 20mg of full spectrum CBD for a total of 100mg per pack.
Benefits of CBD Honey
With CBD honey sticks, you reap the health benefits of both honey and CBD. Throughout human history, honey has been utilized for its nutrient qualities in addition to its medicinal properties. Traditional medicine used honey to treat numerous diseases or symptoms ranging from sore throats to ulcers. Modern medical findings have only further supported honey’s potential to support overall health and the potential to prevent and treat disease conditions.
Studies suggest honey's anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial properties can be useful in treating gastrointestinal diseases, neurological diseases, and even cancer. Also, for people with diabetes, honey can support healthy glucose levels. Simpler than that, honey can serve as a natural sweetener that does not come with the risks many alternative unnatural sweeteners come with.
In a complement to those great benefits, CBD provides an equal amount of health and wellness benefits. Flora Sophia was founded on the staunch belief in the beneficial properties of CBD. CBD use can be found throughout history, as it was a staple in traditional medicine. With legalization, more research has been conducted to support traditional uses. Early research shows promising findings for CBD playing a role in improving cognition, calming anxiety, reducing aches, easing inflammation, and supporting overall wellness. We believe as more research comes out, we will see more support for the beneficial applications of CBD, specifically full spectrum CBD.
How to use CBD Honey Sticks
One of the attractive qualities of CBD honey is its ease of use and ability to be incorporated into your daily routine. Our CBD honey is packaged in easy-to-open sticks. Simply pinch one of the ends of the stick, and it will pop open allowing you to gently squeeze out the CBD honey. From there the possibilities are endless! We source quality honey made by happy bees locally in Southern Oregon, so the taste is great on its own, or you can add it to other drinks and foods. Many people enjoy adding a CBD honey stick to their morning coffee or tea, while some add it to their favorite snacks like cheese or nuts. Anything you can add regular honey to, you can add CBD honey to.
With 20mg of CBD per honey stick, we suggest one honey stick as a single serving. Of course, everyone's needs are different and response to CBD is very individualized. If you are new to CBD, consider half of a honey stick to start and gradually increase your serving if needed after at least two weeks of consistent use. If you are familiar with CBD and/or require more CBD to support your wellness, it is safe to use multiple honey sticks to reach your desired milligramage.
As always, it's important to consult with a medical professional before consuming our CBD honey sticks, especially if you’re taking medications that indicate you should avoid grapefruit.
