After it’s legalization in 2018, CBD became one of the fastest-growing product ingredients in the United States. From essential oils to bath bombs, millions of Americans swear by the healing effects of cannabidiol. Unlike THC, which gives traditional cannabis its psychoactive high, CBD is used to reduce inflammation, ease anxiety and manage physical pain. While it should be taken after approval from a doctor, you will be delighted to find there are no shortage of ways to enjoy its effects. If you love to cook and want to incorporate CBD into your recipes, here are a few recipes to try in your own home.
We’re going to start this off with something simple, which is simply milk infused with cannabidiol. This unique beverage is one of the easiest things to make as all you have to do is add a bit of CBD oil to your favorite type of milk and then let it ferment for a bit. Before we get into how much oil you should use, we need to talk about tolerance. Everyone’s body reacts to cannabidiol differently than others. Some people are able to take a moderate amount and be fine while others may not be able to take as much. The amount of oil you need to put in the milk solely depends on how much you can tolerate. As for the average quantity, it should be at least a half or a whole gram for every quarter of a liter. Consult with your doctor about a particular product and ask for their dosage recommendation.
You may be tempted to combine your cannabidiol cookies with infused milk, but be cautious. There could be harmful effects to taking too much, and you should limit yourself to only one product at a time. The size of the cookies ultimately dictates how much you can put in with the average amount being 4 ml, which is half of a teaspoon. Also, there are various types of cookies you can make, so we’ll give you a recipe to start with. Here’s the basic recipe for chocolate chip CBD cookies:
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup of chocolate chips
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 10 to 20 mgs of CBD oil
- 1/3 cup of flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of brown sugar
For a more refined experience, you can always incorporate a vaporizer into the process. There’s a whole collection of vaporizers to choose from, including desktop models that stay in your home, to those that are portable. Browse an online collection to learn about different sizes, models and features.
Cannabidiol and avocados are a match made in heaven. Homemade guacamole can help improve your cardiovascular health, reduces blood pressure and is loaded with vitamin B. To make your own, peel four avocados into a bowl. Add some salt, pepper and, if you like, some finely chopped tomatoes and jalapeños. Aadd 15 mgs of CBD oil and mash until creamy. Enjoy it alone with tortilla chips, or use it as a topping on salads, tacos and fajitas.
