Marijuana Laced-Honey: The Bees Don’t Catch a Buzz, But Can You?

Somewhere in France, the man who calls himself Nicholas Trainerbees is harvesting honey produced by bees who feasted on marijuana. And he’s starting to create quite a buzz.

The man who says he is an artisan, a locksmith, medical marijuana proponent advocate of marijuana legalization, and above all, a bee keeper, is being toasted as a visionary by some, even though are a few skeptics on his Facebook page and in the comments on early reports about his trained bees.

Yes, trained bees. According to Counter Current News, Nicholas, who says he has « been passionate about nature since childhood, »  has put in 20 years enticing the bees to collect sugars from fruits instead of flowers. Now, he says he’s trained them to collect the psychoactive resin from pot plants.

« I have trained bees to do several things, such as collect sugar from fruits, instead of using flowers, » he explains.

« 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, » he explained. « Everything that passes through the body of a bee is improved, » he added.

« 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. »

And he did, and they did, producing a creamy, yellowish « cannahoney » with « quite a floral aroma » and psychoactive effects—at least for humans, Trainerbee said

 

Not so much for the bees, though. When it comes to cannhoney, they’re not flying high; they’re just being good little worker-bees.

« The bees that produce the cannahoney are not affected by cannabinoids because they do not have an endocannabinoid system, » he explained. « It’s just another form of food for them. »

Watch the bees at work:
