Cannabis honey — does that not sound like the greatest food on the planet? If you think so, then you’re going to love what Nicolas Trainerbees (not his real name) has trained a hive of bees to do. That’s right… make flower-infused batches of honey.
As Higher Perspective reports, the 39-year-old from France is an advocate for cannabis decriminalization. Over 20 years ago, he recognized the medicinal benefit of marijuana. This led him to train honeybees to cultivate a cannabis-infused product. “I have trained bees to do several things, such as collect sugar from fruits, instead of using flowers," said the bee trainer.
Nicolas claims that since he was a boy, he’s been passionate about nature. Eventually, he developed a fondness for Ganga. With his “cannahoney,” he hopes to help others find relief from a myriad of diseases. “For some time I had known about the health benefits of bee products such as honey, propolis, pollen, wax and royal jelly and also about the benefits of cannabis," said Nicolas. The next step was to do something about it.
"So if the bee took the resin from cannabis it would also be very beneficial. The aim arose for me to get the bees to obtain this resin," said the cannabeneur. "It is not smoked, it is ingested and it is good for health.” Reportedly, the bees “accept any strain.”
“The bees that produce the cannahoney are not affected by cannabinoids because they do not have an endocannabinoid system," the activist added.

Before ill-thinking humans in the early 1900’s decided to restrict the cultivation and use of cannabis, it was cultivated and used for medicinal and recreational purposes for over 3,000 years. The herb is not a “gateway drug,” as many have been destructively led to believe. Rather, it is a medicinal plant that can support well-being in all ways — physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. Don’t believe us? There are over 100 peer-reviewed studies confirming that cannabis can help remedy everything from cancer and arthritis to skin conditions and seizures. Learn more here.
