CBD Cooking Tips

Consumers who are seeking health benefits such as stress relief and improved sleep are turning to cannabidiol, or CBD. Cooking with CBD oil not only helps to you get a daily dose of CBD, but it also makes taking it a lot more fun. CBD cooking and baking is easier than you might think. Here are some tips, tricks, and recipes to help you get started:

General CBD Cooking Tips

general cbd cooking tips

  1. Try CBD in both sweet and savory items. Many recipes that include CBD oil tend to focus on desserts and sweets because it’s easier to cover up the bitterness of CBD with sugar or other sweeteners. However, CBD oils can be just as delicious when paired with savory dishes.
  2. CBD needs to be infused into a fat or oil-based ingredient. For the most part, CBD oil needs to be mixed with a fat, such as butter, coconut oil, or olive oil, before you can begin using it for cooking.
  3. Watch the temperature when cooking with CBD. When cooking with CBD, keep in mind that high temperatures can burn off some of the cannabidiol, which can result in a loss of potency. Instead, stick to cooking temperatures below 350 degrees.
  4. Start small and work your way up. One of the biggest CBD cooking mistakes people make is adding too much CBD oil to their recipes right off the bat. Instead, only add a little and see how it tastes. You can always add more later.
  5. Use a flavorless CBD tincture in cooking. When using CBD in cooking, consider picking a flavorless option to preserve the taste of the food you are preparing. CBD isolate and tinctures are a great option since these often come in flavorless varieties.
  6. Keep the overall dosage in mind. When cooking with CBD, you want to make sure you get the right dosage. Pick the right product for you and use the recommended amount so you can ensure you’re getting the proper dosage.
  7. The quality of your CBD matters. When you prepare a home-cooked meal, you want to ensure you’re using the finest-quality ingredients, and the same goes for your CBD oil. The purity and source of your CBD matters.
  8. Storage of CBD is also important. Direct sunlight and high temperatures may lower the potency of your CBD. Store your CBD oil in a cupboard that is not exposed to a lot of heat and keep it out of the reach of kids.
