There are many ways you can use CBD for health and wellness, including but not limited to using a tincture to drop under your tongue, applying topical gels and moisturizers to the skin, and consuming it by eating or drinking it. Whichever method you choose to take your CBD is entirely up to you! If you’re looking for fun and creative ways to use CBD, consider adding it to your everyday routine in your food. Check out some of these everyday recipes with CBD included into the mix.
Baking with CBD
Betty Crocker, Martha Stewart and even Gordon Ramsey might be surprised how CBD fits into some of their recipes. Bring your regular cookies, brownies, cakes, and cupcakes to the next level by baking with CBD! The simplest way to bake with CBD is to drop a dollop of CBD coconut oil into any recipe where you’d typically use regular cooking oils or butter. The most important aspect to consider when following a recipe with CBD-infused coconut oil in your baked goods is to pay attention to the baking temperature. You want to make sure that you’re using controlled heat so it keeps its potency and the benefits of CBD aren’t negated. The boiling point for cannabidiol is 320°F – 356°F.
There are different ways you can drink your CBD. With our water-soluble CBD oil, you can boost any of your favorite drinks or smoothies by putting drops of our full-spectrum hemp elixir into them. Another fun way to incorporate CBD into beverages is by making your own CBD coffee. If you’re familiar with the phenomenon of bulletproof coffee, you’re no stranger to adding oil to your early morning caffeine fix! Here’s the bulletproof coffee recipe with CBD-infused coconut oil – all you need to do is combine the ingredients below in a blender until frothy.
- 1 cup of hot brewed coffee
- 1 to 2 tablespoons of grass-fed butter
- 1 teaspoon to 2 tablespoons of CBD coconut oil
Cooking with CBD
When it comes to cooking with CBD, you’ll want to not only pick the best CBD products that suit your needs. At Ojai Energetics, our 100% certified organic, water-soluble full-spectrum CBD elixir is more potent than typical CBD-rich oils. Most people feel the benefits of our CBD in under a minute, whereas most other CBD products aren’t felt for 30 minutes or more.
If you’re using our water-soluble full spectrum CBD elixir, the different terpenes present in the other ingredients used in the dishes or drinks will interact with the elixir for different benefits. You can create functional food. For example, if you make a citrus dressing with the elixir, the limonene in the citrus will guide the cannabinoids including CBD to promote healthy digestion and boost your mood.
Black pepper which has beta-caryophyllene will guide the cannabinoids to help promote healthy inflammation response and help soothe muscles after a tough workout!
Above all else – have fun with it! As you become more familiar with CBD and CBD coconut oil by adding them to your food and drinks, you can adjust recipes and even create some of your very own recipes with CBD.
Bon Appetit with CBD.
