39-year-old Frenchman, who appropriately was given the nickname “Nicholas Trainerbees”, has trained his bees to create what he calls ‘cannahoney’. It’s exactly what you think it is; honey made from resins and oils from the cannabis plant.
He began training his bees to be attracted by the cannabis resins in 2006 since he’s been a regular medical marijuana patient since childhood and new how beneficial the plant could be to treat various medical conditions. He figured this could only be improved by having bees make honey from it. It took him several years, but finally in 2013 he was successful. The bees used the cannabis resin to create honey with the same effects as cannabis. Of course, he says you don’t smoke it, you eat it to help maintain your health.
Nicholas says the cannahoney has a floral aroma, and a color the changes depending on strain. The bees are not picky about the strains of cannabis either. Apparently, they will use the resins from any cannabis strain.
