The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a wave of concern across the nation, but there’s always something positive to be found in hard times. One positive thing people are picking up during social distancing is cooking. If you are one of the many who are taking your cooking and baking skills to the next level during these times, I’m here to level you up even more: Cooking and baking with CBD! What better way to get through these trying times than to enjoy a homemade meal that not only tastes good, but also is good for your mental health. That my friends, is cooking with cannabidiol in a nutshell. Let’s start with the basics:
2.The saying, “A little goes a long way” rings truth when it comes to cooking with CBD oil. Staring small, or simply adding a few drops to a smoothie or salad is always a safe bet!
3.CBD tends to work best when paired with a fat-based substance, such as butter or cooking oil. PRO TIP: MCT oil is an excellent option, as it allows the CBD to absorb effectively and provides many health benefits just like CBD.
4. Stay below 320°. When cooking with CBD oil it is important to avoid using too much heat in the process because it can lessen the potency and effectiveness of the CBD.
5.Drink it too! CBD oil can also be enjoyed in beverage form, so don’t hesitate to add it to your favorite cold brew coffee or fruit juice!
Want to ‘wake and bake’ without getting high? Doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of plain ol’ vanilla or if you are an eccentric avocado or blueberry blender. Just add a few drops of CBD oil in the mix and make your breakfast tasty, trendy and energizing!
Swap your traditional butter with CBD-Infused butter. Simply heat unsalted butter with low heat, then add CBD oil and water. Let it cool and store it in a dry, cool place until you’re ready to use it. Spread it across your toast or drizzle it on any dish of your choice! Use it in place of normal butter in your favorite baked goods! The opportunities are endless with CBD-infused butter.
This recipe is a no brainer. One of the easiest ways to cook with CBD is by adding it into your premade sauces, dressings and marinades. Remember to not heat the oil too much or it can lose its potency and hinder the flavor as well.
The properties of CBD oil pair excellently with those of chamomile. Together these two work wonders in the relaxation department. All you’ve got to do is heat the milk and tea but do not bring it to a boil. Whisk in some syrup, ginger, nutmeg and CBD oil in minimal quantity. Voila! Your dose of tranquility is ready.
Cooking with CBD never tasted better! Add 2-3 tbsp of high-quality CBD oil to your favorite brownie recipe to make this magic happen. And if you want to take baking with CBD to the next level, put a healthy twist to the recipe by replacing cooking oil with applesauce and using raw ingredients like organic cocoa and agave nectar instead of the box mix. Yummy and healthy AND including CBD, what more could you ask for?!
