By now, we’re all familiar with the myriad health benefits associated with cannabidiol, or CBD for short. Principally, a pivotal catalyst for this cannabinoid’s popularity is platform diversity. Simply put, botanical end-users have multiple options to enjoy their CBD, from vaping oils, edibles, and ointments.
But incorporating cannabidiol into your favorite recipes? That’s a step that many in the general public – and even some botanical enthusiasts – may not be aware of. Nevertheless, the use of CBD recipes has found growing favor within the connoisseur community. This sentiment is especially true for those who are interested in trying cannabis-based products but were previously hesitant.
Primarily, this is because cannabidiol can be enjoyed across multiple platforms. While vaping CBD is the most prominent depiction in the mainstream media, other more discreet alternatives exist, such as topical ointments, tinctures, and edibles. The latter two are essentially ready-made for incorporation into your favorite dishes or recipes.
In addition, some cannabidiol products come in powder form, which naturally aligns well in crafting CBD recipes. If you go this route, electing isolate CBD (as opposed to full spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD) may be an ideal choice because, as pure cannabidiol, the isolate format does not give off any of the sharp aroma or bitter taste of the core botanical material.
Plus, CBD recipes are plain fun. Culinary endeavors offer a balance between creativity and health impact, with people from all walks of life finding intrinsic pleasure in deriving their own unique concoctions. And cannabidiol offers that “secret” ingredient to bring your creations to the next level.
So without further ado, here are some of the best CBD recipes we found throughout the web:
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love guacamole dip: it’s a perfect appetizer and coupled with some tortilla chips, provides a rich contrast between smooth textures and satisfying crispiness. And with CBD, you add another layer of holistic benefits to this tasty snake.
To make Guacamole Dip as part of your repertoire of CBD recipes, you’ll need the following:
• 3 avocados – peeled, pitted and mashed
• 1 Lime Juice
• 1 Teaspoon of salt
• 1/2 Cup of diced onion
• 3 Tablespoons of chopped cilantro
• 2 Teaspoons of CBD powder (approximately 1.5-2 grams)
• 2 Diced and plum Roma tomatoes
• 1 A teaspoon of minced garlic
• 1 A teaspoon of cannabis oil
• 1 Pinch of ground cayenne pepper (optional)
Instructions: Among the most straightforward CBD recipes, take a bowl and mash the avocados, lime juice, cannabis oil, and salt together. Later, mix in the onion, cilantro, CBD powder, tomatoes and garlic. Optionally, you may sprinkle cayenne pepper on your guacamole dip for the perfect accent.
Nothing spices up an old favorite like a tasty vinaigrette. A versatile platform, this culinary delight can be used as a standalone appetizer or as a marinade for the main course. Of course, with cannabidiol infused into the mix, you can add a whole new dimension to the classic Tomato Vinaigrette.
To start crafting this crowd-pleaser, you’ll need the following:
• 1 A cup of (preferably) cherry tomatoes
• 1 Cup CBD-infused olive oil
• 3 Tablespoon of olive oil
• 1/2 Cup of red wine vinegar
• 1 Tablespoon of dijon mustard
• 2 Teaspoon of salt
• 1 Tablespoon of pepper
Instructions: Take a cold frying pan and place your CBD-infused olive oil and tomatoes on it. Then, heat the frying pan to medium to medium-high temperature. Let the tomatoes gain some color to their texture.
Once you see the tomatoes blistering, turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Next, take this mixture and puree it with the red wine vinegar. Add mustard while applying a slow drizzle of the CBD-infused olive oil. Season your Tomato Vinaigrette with salt and pepper and enjoy!
