Kitchen Toke Hemp Honey and Hemp Bee Balm
Why These Two Products Are Truly Revolutionary
Bees are incredible. They make honey, naturally rich in antioxidants and antibacterial properties, that promote overall health. For centuries, humans have harnessed the power of honey. For decades, research has substantiated its benefits.
Hemp has a similar legacy. Full-spectrum hemp, which maximizes all parts of the plant, has been widely substantiated for easing stress, relieving anxiety, improving sleep, and reducing pain.
Now Kitchen Toke Hemp Honey unites these two forces of nature in a way that’s never been done before.
Through a patented method, honeybees are attracted to our proprietary hemp nectar, eating it as they would from any flowering plant. This ruby-colored hemp nectar blends with the honeybee’s enzymes, mixing the nutritional and healing benefits of both.
The honeybees pass the honey they’ve infused to other bees, a motion that helps concentrate the sugars before the mixture is deposited into hexagonal cells that they’ve meticulously built with their own beeswax. The buzz from the bees is the sound of their wings fanning the honey so it continues to thicken.
Once the bees complete their work, which includes capping the honey with a beeswax-like substance for storage, the hemp honey is harvested and jarred. Nature at its best—mixed by bees, not humans.
But there’s more to the sustainable process of Kitchen Toke Hemp Honey.
Beeswax is loaded with antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties, including propolis, which has been known for centuries for its healing abilities, according to academic studies archived by the National Center for Biotechnology Information.
Because the bees eat our patented hemp nectar, their beeswax also contains the whole plant’s anti-inflammatory properties. So instead of discarding it, the beeswax is used to make Kitchen Toke Hemp Bee Balm. The balm is blended with MCT oil, hemp seed oil, and a unique blend of medicinal plants, such as eucalyptus calendula, arnica, and rosemary. Each of these ingredients has been studied for their protective traits as well as their ability to reduce pain and inflammation.
