We all know honey is sweet, delectable and good on just about anything. From salads to
desserts and as a natural sweetener when baking, the uses for honey are virtually endless. But
this sweet treat isn’t just good for late-night cravings, it is also a superfood, jam-packed with a
myriad of health benefits.
Medterra is excited to announce our new CBD infused Manuka Honey that is as healthy as it is
delicious. We all know the power and benefits of CBD. Now you can enjoy those same benefits
working synergistically with one of nature’s most potent superfoods.
Why is Manuka Honey So Special?
Manuka Honey is a unique type of honey native to New Zealand. Manuka Honey is made by
bees that pollinate the Manuka Flower, which is native to New Zealand and blooms just a few
weeks every year. This type of honey is made by bees who pollinate the native Manuka Bush,
scientifically known as Leptospermum Scoparium.
Unique Manuka Factor (UMF)
In addition to where it was harvested, the nectar of the Manuka flower gives Manuka Honey its
unique non-peroxide activity properties. The UMF (Unique Makuka Factor) is a grading system
that rates the amount of unique signature compounds characteristic of real Manuka Honey,
which ensures purity and quality. The UMF rating itself is calculated by measuring the levels of
three specific compounds found naturally in Manuka honey and is overseen by The UMF Honey
Association. The higher the UMF number, the more pure the Manuka Honey is.
The Three Compounds Measured are:
● Leptisperin (nectar from the Manuka bush);
● DHA (a type of omega-3 fatty acid);
● and Methylglyoxal
