What is Cannahoney?

Cannahoney is cannabis infused honey. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t come from specially trained honey bees. In fact, Cannahoney comes from humans. Yes, this is a true story!

For the most part, one makes canna honey by wrapping cannabis in cheesecloth and soaking in warm honey for several hours. However, this method is an ineffective means of infusing honey. Because cannabinoids are not soluble in honey, the product is weak.

The following recipe will teach you how to make dispensary grade cannahoney while maintaining all of the wonderful properties of your cannabis.

Why Is This Canna Honey Recipe Different?

The main thing that sets this recipe apart from other cannahoney recipes is the use of sunflower lecithin. Consequently, this method results in no messy cheesecloth, no heat and little time required to make a superior infused product.

What is Lecithin?

Lecithin is a fat found in foods including egg yolks and soya beans. It attracts both water and fatty substances. Lecithin uses include as a food additive and emulsifier to keep ingredients from separating. It’s an essential ingredient in cannahoney.

Most health food stores sell sunflower lecithin as a supplement in powder or granular form. Sunflower lecithin is preferred over soy lecithin in making cannahoney. Unlike soy lecithin, sunflower lecithin is not extracted with harsh chemicals.

Ingredients in Cannahoney

The ingredients in cannahoney are simple and inexpensive. In particular, this includes creamed honey, sunflower lecithin, liquid coconut oil, cannabis and LorAnn flavoring oil (flavoring is optional).

Creamed Honey

The best choice for the cannahoney infusion is pure unpasteurized creamed honey. Make sure you find “PRODUCT OF CANADA” on the label to ensure you are using the best quality product.


Most health food stores or bulk stores have sunflower lecithin in powder or granular form. Check the expiry date on the package for product freshness.


Use decarboxylated cannabis in cannahoney. In order to decarboxylate cannabis, heat it in the oven at 240°F for 25 to 30 minutes. If using dried flower, grind decarboxylated cannabis to a fine powder. You can also use decarboxylated concentrates infused with a small amount of coconut oil.

Coconut Oil

The cannahoney recipe requires 1 Tablespoon of liquid coconut oil in total. If using capsules or tincture, for example, you may have ½ Tbsp of liquid. Thus, add ½ Tbsp liquid coconut oil to make 1 Tbsp total oil.


The best brand of flavoring is LorAnn. Use natural oil specifically for best results. Selections include cinnamon, anise, clove, mint, orange and lemon. The oils are usually available at your local bulk store and online.

LorAnn oil adds an amazing flavor punch to your cannahoney. For example, ½ dram of cinnamon oil infused with 250 mL honey tastes like hot cinnamon candies. Also, ¾ dram of mint oil in 250 mL honey tastes like scotch mint candies.

How to Make Cannahoney

Step 1

Mix together 1 Tbsp sunflower lecithin with 1 Tbsp coconut oil, cannabis and flavoring. Stir together until the mixture is smooth with no lumps.

Step 2

Add 1 cup creamed honey to oil/lecithin/cannabis mixture. Mix thoroughly until a smooth. If you find it is too difficult to mix by hand, you could use an electric mixer with dough hook attachment.

Step 3

Put cannahoney into a container. Hex shaped honey jars are very attractive and make a lovely gift. Attach the appropriate THC symbols to the container and store safely out of reach of children and pets.

Safely Store Cannahoney

Because outdated sunflower lecithin can cause the product to become rancid, refrigeration is recommended.

    This was so good! My only complaint was that some plant bits seemed to sink to the bottom of the honey. I stirred it to combat that problem and all was well. Maybe next time, I need to grind it finer somehow. Also, I didn’t have liquid coconut oil so I just used organic, virgin coconut oil. Idk if it mattered much but my batch was good.

    hey I enjoy the results very much thank you! I like to drink this in tea and i found towards the end it becomes undrinkable because of all the bits of weed. Any suggestions as to filtering out the little bits?


  • For the liquid coconut oil that I would infuse RSO into, does it need to be the kind of coconut oil that does not solidify in chillier temperatures? Also I plan to use a local raw honey is that okay? Lastly would an immersion blender work to incorporate? Thank you!

    • I have always made the recipe using liquid coconut oil, but you could try using the one that solidifies at room temperature. Raw honey should be perfectly fine to use in cannahoney. As for the immersion blender, I would not recommend it because the blade is too small and it could create an air pocket and potentially a mess.

      • Thank you for your reply! Ok I’m so worried I just ruined my batch 🙁 I made a mistake and basically just added my RSO to the honey directly. I’ve been putting it in a water bath until it reaches temp ( 100-115 degrees) for a few minutes Each day and then shaking/rotating warm mason jar over the last couple days. It looks combined but will it separate? At this point what should I do? I do have sunflower lecithin granules I could use? Please help! No coconut oil of any type was involved. Hopefully you can rescue me. I appreciate your advice so much thank you!

        • Not sure if this would work, but you could try mixing oil and lecithin, then add to your honey/RSO, then mix thoroughly and see if it all comes together.

        • Does the liquid coconut oil keep it from solidifying ?
          My canna honey turns outdelicious, + potent but after canning I hate how you can see the coconut oil at the top once cooled.

    • You should start with determining how much cannahoney you would typically consume at one time. For example, if I eat 1 tablespoon in my cereal everyday, I would have 16.7 servings in a 250 mL jar of cannahoney. If I added 750 mg of THC to 250 mL honey, I would have 45 mg THC per serving. The Edibles Tools page has more information about dosing, decarboxylation and infusion.
