Let’s now talk about some excellent CBD recipes you can enjoy to reap all its medicinal benefits. From pain management to keeping anxiety at bay, to improved sleep quality. It has a lot of benefits to offer.
Here’s how you can go about consuming CBD with your everyday edibles.
1. CBD Sweets And Desserts
Many bakeries sell a delectable line of sweets and desserts that have been infused with CBD. The key is to exploit the deliciousness of chocolate laced with CBD oil in a finer form.
You can add hemp flower in the powdered form to brownies and cakes. Obviously, it’s an excellent way to mix this herb into your desserts too.
You can even infuse the oil in caramel and chocolate coating. Not only will it tickle your taste buds, but you will also feel relaxed, focused, and definitely less stressed. A perfect way to satiate your sweet tooth cravings as well!
Recipe for brownies:
This recipe is similar to any other brownie recipe that you would normally use at home. You will need all the regular ingredients. The only new addition is the CBD oil.
As a rule of thumb, if you are making 12 brownies, go with 1200 mg of CBD. It’s safe to consume 10mg of CBD every day. First, extract oil from a good quality CBD strain. You can start off by preheating the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Mix the CBD oil and sugar in a bowl and blend it up. After this, add eggs, CBD, and vanilla in and keep blending. Mix baking powder, salt, flour, and cocoa powder in a different bowl and add everything together.
Now that the mix is ready, you can make brownies like you normally would. Pour the mix on a greased pan and bake them for about twenty minutes. Let it cool down and cut into small pieces. Enjoy!
2. CBD Tea
For this recipe, you are going to need your favorite tea, CBD oil, milk, and hot water. Start off by boiling water.
Add your favorite tea to your favorite mug and start pouring hot water once it’s hot enough for you. Now give this preparation some brewing time.
Add some milk as per your taste. Let it be known that CBD oil cannot mix with water since it’s oil. It can, however, mix with fatty substances which is why it’s important to add milk or some other dairy.
Add a few drops of CBD oil and give this preparation a good stir till everything is blended. Let it cool down a little. Your new favorite tea is now ready to be enjoyed.
3. CBD Bliss Balls
For this recipe, you are going to need:
3/4 cups of macadamia nuts, a tablespoon melted coconut oil, 120 mg of CBD oil, 1 tbsp of pure vanilla extract, and 2 tbsp of cocoa nibs.
You will also need one-third cup of shredded coconut (unsweetened), 1/3 cup almond flour, and half a tablespoon ground cinnamon.
Blend up the macadamia nuts till you get a thick paste. Add CBD oil to form butter.
You can add coconut oil too. Add butter with almond flour, shredded coconut, cinnamon, vanilla extract and mix it up to form cookie dough.
You can add a few stevia drops if you want the mix to taste sweeter. Add cocoa nibs and fold the mix till the nibs are distributed evenly.
Start making balls by taking scoops of dough in your palms. This particular recipe should give you ten bliss balls.
You can store this preparation in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks.
4. CBD Infused Guacamole
This recipe is an excellent way to use as a dip or a side dish for breakfast, lunches, and dinners.
It requires 2 avocados, 1 lime, half a tsp pink salt, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp hot sauce, 1 chopped sprig cilantro, 1 minced garlic clove, 2 diced and seeded tomatoes, and 1/4 seeded and diced jalapeño pepper.
You will also need 60 drops of hemp CBD oil.
Scoop out the avocado flesh and mash with a fork to form a smooth consistency. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix them all well. Guacamole is ready.
You can adjust salt and other seasonings as per your taste. Enjoy the guacamole with vegetables, chips, and most of the Mexican dishes.
A Word of Caution
If you are under any kind of medication, you would want to talk to your physician before incorporating CBD in your life. Pregnant women should also exercise caution when it comes to CBD intake. There are no studies done on CBD and pregnant women yet.
You may also want to keep kids away from CBD and your CBD recipes simply because there is no research yet that CBD consumption is ‘safe’ for kids.
All of these recipes are super easy to make and incredibly delicious. Of course, there are several more ways in which you can include CBD and make it a part of your kitchen and everyday meals.
But, the ones mentioned above happen to be the easiest and most delectable ways of getting the most out of CBD.
