Packing a lunch is a great way to save time and money. But taking a lunch with you every day requires commitment and creativity, which is why using versatile ingredients, like honey, is essential. You can use honey on almost anything: On toast, in sandwiches, as a sugar replacement in coffee and teas, drizzled over fruit, in yogurt, cereal, soups, cookies, etc. The uses and health benefits are endless, which is why the creation of medicated honey is genius.
HoneyPot 420 has crafted two kinds of California wildflower honey: Indica and CBD. What’s great about HoneyPot is that they’ve been in the game a lot longer than other brands, allowing them time to alter, grow and perfect their product. Since 2014 HoneyPot’s won nine Cannabis Cups, proving the success of their honey, cold pressed coconut oil and cannabis blend.
While packing a lunch to take to the Ortegas, it dawned on me that I had two bottles of HoneyPot that I’d purchased from Evergreen and never used. Remembering I had medicated honey in the pantry felt like finding 20 bucks in my pocket. So I decided to make a peanut butter, medicated honey and banana sandwich. I put Squaw bread in the toaster for a minute, lathered organic creamy peanut butter on one half and covered the other with a mixture of CBD and indica honey. Then I placed sliced bananas on top of the honey, closed the sandwich and packed it to go.
After about an hour of wandering around Ortega Hwy, I ate my sandwich. Although the taste of cannabis was present, it meshed well with the peanut butter, Squaw, banana combo. After an hour and 15 minutes, my senses were heightened and nature never felt so alive. It was about 95 degrees out, but storm clouds covered the sky. Rain fell. Flashes of lightning kicked and thunder screamed.
It couldn’t have been a better day to eat a medicated sandwich and hike around. If Winnie the Pooh were a stoner, HoneyPot would be his jam.
