Yes, cannahoney please.
The man who calls himself Nicholas Trainer-bees is becoming something of a legend among both beekeepers and cannabis enthusiasts.
That’s because he’s been able to do what many have talked about, but no one has been able to actually pull off.
Nicholas is a 39 year old man who lives in France. In addition to being a beekeeper, an artist, and a locksmith, he’s also an outspoken supporter of marijuana.
For the past few years, he’s been trying to figure out how to combine his love of cannabis with his love of bees.
And now, it looks like he’s figured it out. He managed to train his bees to make honey after gathering resin from cannabis plants.
By using what he calls “a training technique whereby the bees collect the resin and use it in the beehive,” Nicholas and his bees have created the world’s first batch of “cannahoney.”
Since this is such a new phenomenon, nobody’s had a chance to really test this new honey to see how much of the original cannabis actually makes it through to the final product. But Nicholas says that his bees’ cannahoney brings together the health benefits of both honey and cannabis.
He said that as a child he got into a lot of trouble at school because he’s hyperactive. Eventually, he dropped out.
But he soon discovered that cannabis could help him cope with his condition.
Recognizing that honey is another all-natural substance with tons of potential health benefits, Nicholas decided that honey and cannabis would be the perfect things to combine.
Before he obtained his first results, some people dared to say that cannabis was harmful for bees.
He was totally convinced that was not the case, but he had to wait two years until the project was well consolidated and he was able to demonstrate that the plants had no negative impact on the insects.
“The bees that produce the cannahoney are not affected by cannabinoids because they do not have an endocannabinoid system”, he explains.
If cannahoney lives up to its name, it could essentially be the first-ever all-natural cannabis edible.
And since Nicholas reports that his bees will take to pretty much any strain, there are limitless possibilities for creating different kinds of cannahoney.
