One of the beautiful things about CBD is the wide variety of ways to consume it. We know that sublingual tinctures are a consistent and effective delivery method, but what if you want to change up your routine? Know someone who wants to use CBD oil but doesn’t care for the taste or experience of a CBD tincture?
High quality CBD oil can be added to countless foods and beverages. When choosing a recipe to use, look for gentle temperatures 350 degrees or below (for recipes that include cooking/baking), and oils or fats with which to disperse your CBD oil. Consuming your CBD with healthy fats aids in absorption.
Here’s a simple cookie recipe made from whole foods you can feel good about. This recipe is gluten free, grain free, dairy free, refined-sugar free, and delicious. These have a texture like a chewy brownie, and the CBD flavor is virtually undetectable.
Chocolate and peanut butter are rich in plant oils just waiting to blend with CBD and tantalize your taste buds. Chia seeds and sea salt offer a slight crunch, which contrasts with the soft, fudgy interiors. Add any mix-ins you like.
Bring these (clearly labeled) to your next potluck or bag up a batch as a gift for your favorite CBD-using friend. These are lightly, naturally sweetened and full of good fats and fiber, so let go of the guilt and enjoy them any time of day!
-Be sure to clearly label all foods that are medicated with CBD. It’s an all around bad idea to dose an unsuspecting or nonconsenting friend/ family member/ stranger with CBD.
-Whisk the CBD oil into the egg before adding other ingredients. Mix well to ensure even distribution.
-These cookies barely spread. Feel free to flatten slightly before baking for a flatter cookie.
-This 100 mg CBD recipe is designed to make 20 very small cookies with 5 mg CBD each. Make any size cookies you like- just be sure to count them before you start snacking so you can calculate dosage. For example, 10 cookies will contain 10 mg CBD each.
-Feel free to trade out the peanut butter for almond butter or your nut butter of choice.
