Immune Boosting “Hot Toddy” Recipe

Relief is available in the most practical places. One of my favorite ways to enjoy is to pair it with Comfort and great memories.  A favorite childhood memory was sipping my grandmas Hot Toddies while bundled up in a comfy blanket.  The hot toddies were always fragrant, warm, and I always felt better after having one followed by a night of restful sleep.  Grandma only issued these hot toddies when I was sick, so they were very special and rare.  As an adult I can have hot toddies whenever i’d like and as a cannabis advocate I never forget to add the BUZZ!

Adding MAAT Apothecary’s Cannabis infused Spiced Honey has been my addition to this tradition and I want you to try it and share with your loved ones.  Why?  Because local honey has hella benefits!  Honey has been used since antiquity by our ancestors for it’s ability to boost immunity, soothe the throat, ease coughing, as well as for other health benefits associated with it’s Anti-Oxidants, Anti-Inflammatory, and Anti-Bacterial properties.  Honey is also a fantastic natural sweetener that can enhance the flavor of your foods & beverages.  This is very likely why ancestors combined it with citrus in the Hot Toddy to facilitate the healing process.  Citrus fruits like Lemon, Orange, Lime, and Grapefruit contain “Vitamin C” which is an essential nutrient that’s important for proper immune function.  It’s also an antioxidant like honey and is involved in aiding the repair of body tissues.  

The entourage of healing and relaxation in every Hot Toddy is undeniable. We hope it becomes a staple medicinal drink in your household that makes it easier for you to reach your wellness goals and keep your immunity boosted!
