Recipes to Make With CBD Oil
Cooking with hemp dates back to the 9th century when people used a mixture of ground cannabis and milk (Bhang) for religious purposes.
Similar recipes were found in Italy, dating back to the renaissance era. Still, it wasn't until the 20th century that the popularity of edibles with hemp erupted, with all these space brownies, CBD-infused chocolate bars, salad dressings, and other crazy recipes.
We've tried a few recipes ourselves and loved cooking with hemp. Cannabis is indeed a food-friendly herb that can spice up your cooking and add a dash of benefits to your nutrition regime. It's no wonder why people have embraced adding it to their recipes with so much enthusiasm. In this post, we've prepared a list of our favorite CBD-infused recipes, both sweet and savory.
Savory and Sweet Cannabis Oil Recipe
Adding your touch to a CBD recipe is super easy, especially when using CBD from full-spectrum extracts (the type of CBD that carries all the active compounds).
If this is your first time cooking with CBD oil, we recommend making smaller batches at first. We've seen it all before; enthusiastic cooks often mess up and end up wasting precious CBD because they fail to recreate the recipe correctly. CBD oil is an expensive ingredient; use it carefully.
So, let's get to it, shall we? Here are some mouthwatering CBD-infused recipes you can quickly try at home.
