CBD has gained acceptance by many who continue to rely on it for its healing properties. Such people consume it as a part of daily medication, often taking it with other supplements. Some other people, however, have found more ways to enjoy CBD and increase their intake of the substance and they do that by using it as an ingredient in the kitchen.
Many stores today have snacks and other food that has been infused with CBD. This has made consumption of the substance very easy, as people can now eat brownies or cakes that are CBD infused and taste better than taking the oil by itself. You can buy these edibles, but it would be better to prepare them at home because there is no limit to creativity. You can mix tinctures of CBD oil with pretty much anything and it will come out fine.
Here we would be looking at ways to enjoy CBD with your food as an active ingredient today.
Before we begin, however, it is important to note that CBD is not a great ingredient for frying or using in heat above 180 degrees Celsius or 320 degrees Fahrenheit. This is because heat reduces its potency, reducing the effect it has on your body. To be safe, just stick with foods that do not require much heat.
1. CBD Guacamole
Our favorite avocado dip can now be enjoyed with the goodness of CBD. Making it does not take too much time or require any special effort. We will need:
Two avocados, or more, depending on the size you are aiming for.
Two small tomatoes, chopped.
1/2 finely diced onion
A bunch of cilantro, chopped
One small jalapeno, diced
One clove garlic, smashed or diced
A pinch of salt, pepper for taste
And a small drop of CBD oil
The first step is to properly skin the avocados and remove the seeds, then put it in a bowl.
In the bowl, gently mash it. For this, a fork will do.
Add your other ingredients. The CBD oil should be among your first ingredients, followed by salt and pepper, then your tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, and every other ingredient.
Wrap it properly and place it in a refrigerate for an hour.
Bring out and serve with a tortilla.
2. CBD Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate cookies are a treat nobody can ever go wrong with, and making them with CBD takes the delight of the snack to another level. So easy to make and it does not take much of your time. We will need:
150g of salted butter
80g of brown sugar
80g of granulated sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1 large egg
225g of plain flour
½ teaspoon of baking soda
200g of chocolate chips
First, we start by mixing the butter and sugar, both brown and granulated, in a bowl. Mix them vigorously until it appears creamy.
Next, you add your egg, already whisked, CBD oil, and vanilla extract into the butter and sugar mixture, and you continue mixing again.
Then you add the flour into the bowl. Properly sift it to make sure it’s devoid of any unwanted particles. Add baking soda and salt, and mix with the other ingredients. After some time, add chocolate chips.
The next step is for you to serve small amounts of dough in small bits into a tray. For that, you can use a wooden spoon or small scoop.
Place the tray into an already preheated oven. Remember to pay attention to the heat. The baking time should be about 10 minutes, but the tip is to wait until the sides are brown.
Let it cool, then serve.
