Ten different ways to use CBD honey
CBD oil is made using a CBD potent plant to infuse pure honey. This creates a cannabis extract that can be full of THC, CBD, or both depending on the base material that is used for the infusion. The health benefits of using CBD honey are numerous with many who use it with great success to treat stomach ulcers, hangovers, dry skin, chapped lips, pain, sore muscles, and more. CBD is a natural form of antibiotic that can be used in many ways. So many ways, that there's no way to list them all in one place.

Whether you are baking brownies or cakes or making a good old-fashioned roast, there is always potential to turn a feast into one that is infused with cannabinoids.
Have you ever made your own marshmallows? Though this one kind of goes hand in hand with edibles it is unique because of the potency of the marshmallows when eaten vs. most other edibles.

Mix one teaspoon of CBD honey in with your favorite face mask. Since CBD has antibacterial qualities, it will leave you feeling fresher and cleaner than ever before. If you don’t have a regular mask mixture to add it to then simply mix 1 tablespoon of CBD honey with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil for a luxurious moisturizing experience.
5. Cuts and Scrapes
Most people reach for the Polysporin when they get a cut or a burn, but CBD honey can be a just as effective and cheaper alternative. Just clean the affected area and dab the wound with a small amount of CBD honey using a cotton swab, then cover it with a Band-Aid. You will get the antibacterial benefits of the honey as well as the anti-inflammatory effects from the CBD.
Acne can be embarrassing and painful, but CBD honey can help with that. Just like with cuts, an inflamed pimple can be treated with CBD honey to reduce inflammation and irritation.
7. Lip Chap
If you get dry or cracked lips and are in search of a good lip balm CBD honey is perfect. Just dip a cotton swab or fingertip in a jar and rub the soothing honey over your lips.
CBD toothpaste is a popular product that utilized cannabidiol (CBD) to relieve painfully swollen or sensitive gums. CBD honey is a much more potent version of this and can be used to treat gingivitis and other oral health issues by rubbing it along the bottom gum line. The inflamed pockets will absorb the CBD directly and provide that fastest relief possible.
Every woman who has struggled through painful menstrual cramps knows that a little relief can go such a long way at that time. If you need a quick fix and are feeling crampy and bloated stir one or two teaspoons of CBD honey into a glass of water and drink it as fast as possible.
10. Pain relief
