Frenchman Nicolas, who calls himself Nicolas Trainerbees, is a passionate advocate for bees and for the use of medical cannabis. So one day he decided to merge the two. Incredibly, Nicolas has trained his bees to behave exactly how he wishes. Though he isn’t revealing exactly how he does this, he says that he has drilled his bees to do things such as collect sugar from fruits, instead of using flowers.

Biology lessons aside, it is was thought of as near impossible for bees to turn cannabis into honey as marijuana plants don’t produce enough nectar – they are wind pollinated (ask your parents). But Nicolas has pulled it off.

The bees are now producing a substance which he calls “cannahoney”. However, he modestly says that he has not created a brand new honey, “but rather a training technique whereby the bees collect the resin and use it in the beehive” which he then scrapes and puts into pots. Nicolas’ says that “Cannahoney” has “quite a floral” aroma and a colour that slightly changes depending on the varieties, although it usually ranges from light green to white or yellow. The substance “is not smoked, it is ingested and it is good for health”, he explained.

Before some of you start imagining getting high off your toast in the mornings, you won’t because of the lack of any THC in it. Though the combination of two of nature’s superfoods, royal jelly and honey, is great news for fitness fanatics.

Though he says he is inundated with constant requests to buy or at least try the honey,  he can’t yet as he admits that he still requires a more detailed analysis in order to determine all of its properties. Despite this, he states that three people with anxiety tried a few spoonfuls “and felt a lot better”.
