While hemp seeds and hemp seed oil have been used for cooking and for protein supplements, there are also a lot of ways to add CBD oil into your favorite foods. Edibles are a very common and popular way for people to ingest CBD products, and there are ways you can make your own edibles at home to suit your personal tastes.
Many homemade edibles come in the form of baked goods like brownies or cookies. This is mainly because they are easier to make than gummies and you can add or remove ingredients for dietary restrictions. It is also fairly simple to add CBD to your baked goods. According to an article published by Chronic Therapy, the easiest way to include CBD into your baked goods is to add CBD oil to your cooking oil i.e: olive oil, coconut oil, in a pan on low heat. Heating it slowly will prevent it from vaporizing or breaking down completely. You can also simply add the oil to things like salad dressings or smoothies.
Adding CBD isolates or shatter to your edible recipes offer an affordable higher milligram option. Isolates can be water soluble, so you can infuse them in almost any recipe, making them very versatile. Shatters are typically infused with terpenes, so they will add more flavor to your recipe.
Some CBD companies have already started to produce CBD infused cooking oils. CBD infused coconut oil, olive oil, ghee, etc. can all be used for cooking, and still provide you with the health benefits of CBD. The great thing about making your own edibles with CBD is that you aren’t limited to just making baked goods.
CBD can be infused into beverages. CBD companies like Queen City Hemp already sell a CBD infused seltzer water, and breweries are beginning to make CBD infused beers. One example is Coalition Brewing in Oregon, which has recently produced the state’s first commercially produced CBD infused beer.
