A french beekeeper and avid cannabis user, known to the public as Nicolas Trainerbees, spent years trying to figure out how to bring two important elements from his life together. The result is a natural nectar called “cannahoney”.
He has earned the nickname over the past 20 years devoted to his association with animals and bees.
According to the Science Explorer:
“When Trainer was just 7-years-old, he began to get into a lot of trouble at school because he was hyperactive, which eventually led to him dropping out. However, soon after leaving school, he realized that using cannabis for medical purposes helped him deal with his condition.
“I began consuming before the age of 10.”
Years later, many people who were aware of Trainer’s ability to raise and train bees began to ask if he would ever use his bees to create honey made from marijuana plants. Knowing that honey is a natural substance with its own health benefits, Trainer figured that the two would actually be a perfect combination.”
He has spent so much time with his insect friends that he claims he can actually train them to behave as he wishes.
“I have trained bees to do several things, such as collect sugar from fruits, instead of using flowers”.
When it comes to his “cannahoney”, he says that he uses a “training technique whereby the bees collect the resin and use it in the beehive”. His followers and friends asked him to train his bees to produce this nectar.
“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. Everything that passes through the body of a bee is improved… 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.”
“The bees that produce the cannahoney are not affected by cannabinoids, because they do not have an endocannabinoid system.”
After many years of testing his products, in 2013 he finally accomplished what he started, creating terpenes with “a delicious and pleasant taste” and aromas of a fresh plant.
The color of “cannahoney” changes from light green to white or yellow, and it has a floral aroma.
“It is not smoked, it is ingested and it is good for health.”
Live Love Fruit reports:
“If you look at the benefits of cannabis and honey separately, you can be rest assured that the two of them combined would provide some powerful healing potential. Cannabis has been proven time and time again to help eradicate cancer cells, while honey is a powerful anti-viral, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and one of the best immune system strengtheners around.
Nicolas says that “everything that passes through the body of a bee is improved,” since their enzymes make the nectar turn into honey. This process allows our body to better utilize the compounds of the cannabis plant.
Eating cannahoney will also help your body relax a little bit. While it won’t make you totally high, it’ll give you a minor buzz and allow you to relax and de-stress. As we all know, stress is the number one killer in America, so keeping it to a minimum is crucial if we want to live long, happy lives.”
