Cooking With CBD Oil – 5 Savoury and Sweet CBD Recipes

If you’ve been thinking about cooking with CBD or doing more of it, today we’re Cooking With CBD oil – 5 Savoury and Sweet CBD Recipes.

There are so many potential benefits of incorporating CBD into your cooking!

While you may not feel the instant effectiveness of CBD, like when you consume THC (for those who do), over time, you may feel benefits like:

  • Combatting anxiety
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Aids sleep
  • Alleviates stress
  • Promotes brain health
  • Reduces pain

Taking CBD through droppers or through consumption is said to be one of the fastest methods of feeling the benefits because it quickly absorbs into the bloodstream and gets to work!

Tips for Cooking with CBD Oil

One of the main questions people always ask is ‘can I cook with CBD oil?’

Absolutely! But there are some guidelines you want to be mindful of such as:

Quality of CBD Oil

  1. Always use a good quality brand of oil and CBD. Look for third-party lab testing, and make sure the company whose CBD you’re purchasing is reputable.

2. Dose low and slow – getting the right balance in your cooking can be challenging but to test the sweet spot, start small and gain momentum as your body adjusts.

3. Start with easy recipes – if you do not know where to start, choose easy recipes such as adding CBD oils to your salads and smoothies.

4. Avoid direct heat– CBD oil should always be added to other ingredients and not be heated directly. If you do, it can decrease the benefits and effectiveness of the oil.
