A Beekeeper has Trained Bees to Make Honey from Cannabis Resin
Many people are calling the man who trained bees to make honey from marijuana a genius. It is something many have talked about doing, but no one has been able to successfully pull it off. At least until now, of course.
His name is Nicholas Trainer — nicknamed Nicholas Trainerbees. He is 39-years-old and lives in France. In addition to being a beekeeper, an artist, and a locksmith, he is also an outspoken supporter of marijuana.
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,” he explained to Dinafem.
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: “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.”

How does it work? Trainer managed to train his bees to make honey after gathering resin from the cannabis plants. “I have trained bees to do several things, such as collect sugar from fruits, instead of using flowers,” Trainer said. “The aim arose for me to get the bees to obtain this resin.”
By using what he calls “a training technique whereby the bees collect the resin and use it in the beehive,” Nicholas and his bees, which are solely responsible for the final substance, have created the world’s first batch of cannahoney.
Since this is such a new phenomenon, no one has had the chance to test how much of the original cannabis is in the final honey product. However, Trainer believes that cannahoney contains the health benefits of both honey and cannabis.

Now, you may be wondering if cannabis is in any way harmful for the bees. The answer is no. “The bees that produce the cannahoney are not affected by cannabinoids because they do not have an endocannabinoid system”, he explained. So don’t worry, the bees are perfectly healthy!
“Everything that passes through the body of a bee is improved,” he said. Resin obtained from trees and plants, including cannabis, is turned into propolis, which is an antiseptic, antibiotic, antifungal, and antibacterial. The bees will also use the resin from any strain, meaning there are almost limitless possibilities for creating different kinds of cannahoney.
How does the cannahoney taste? It has been described as quite floral, and it’s color slightly changes depending on the strains used, but it usually ranges from light green to white or yellow. As Trainer importantly explains, the honey “is not smoked, it is ingested and it is good for health.”
Trainer now has over 30 beehives to create the honey. His cannahoney is everything it claims to be — it could essentially be the first-ever all-natural cannabis edible.
Here is a very short video showing the busy bees at work.

bluedude – 07.07.2011
I bought 5 feminized seeds from a barneys shop in ’Dam and got them down under. all 5 germinated. raised indoors under 400 watt hps in coco peat with a few drops of superthrive and basic seedling mix (forget the name) for 4 weeks. at start of november i put plants into a shady spot in backyard for a few hours each day, more time each day. my veggie patch has been prepared with with last years compost, leftover coco peat and some good organic soil.
i found 3 out of 5 plants grew taller and slighty more sativa than the other 2 but overall they had more of an indica look and growth pattern.
these plants needed little attention, and just basic support at the start.
i used fish emulsion and guano very little of both throughout the stages.
the 3 taller ones reached about 180-190cm, 2 smaller ones about 150cm.
all 5 had huge center colas with only 4 to 8 side buds, but these too were dense and massive.
the yield was very good, about 3 pounds of dried bud from five plants.
plants finished middle of may (southern hemisphere)
