Have you ever tried or even heard of Cymbalta for treating chronic pain? How can I best explain it…. It sucks! I am sure it has helped some people and that is great but it is not for me. I started taking a low dose in March and am now STILL trying to wean off of it and experiencing less than pleasant withdrawal symptoms. I have skipped the daily doses for the past 3 nights and today the electrical current zaps in my face are just asinine!!
If I were at home, I would likely choose to vape a 50/50 strain like Jack Herer or MOB to take the edge off but what I have available to me right now is honey, infused with a sativa strain called Chocolope (which I have previously tested for potency/tolerance) so… Tea is is!!
Here’s how I made my first batch of infused honey. I think it came out as good as the infused honey I purchased from my local dispensary.
Canna-Honey (Small batch, Crock & Jar method)
First I decarboxylated 5g medical herb in 250° oven for 30-40 mins. Then wrapped it up inside cheesecloth and secured it with kitchen string.
Then I poured 2/3 Cup honey into a pint sized mason jar and mixed 1 Tbsp Lecithin into the honey, added the wrapped herb and mixed it well to thoroughly saturate the herb satchel.
I then placed the covered mixture into a little dip crock and added enough hot water to covertat least the same level of honey in the jar.
I let this simmer for nearly 24hours while stirring and checking the water level throughout the cooking time.
Because I am new to wrapping with cheesecloth, I had to strain the honey through a strainer and into a little half pint jar (to sift out the cloth strings that ended up fraying and floating in it) but it worked beautifully.
VERY IMPORTANT STEP: Repeat after me… “Low and Slow”
Always remember to test each batch of any new edible when you have some time to spare and don’t plan to drive anywhere.
I found this particular batch to work well with 1 teaspoon per cup of tea in order to accomplish the effects I am looking for without the head high. It’s mild and very yummy!
Have a happy day! XO
