Do you want to bake with cannabis without getting baked?
With the holidays approaching, there will be plenty of opportunities to cook up some delicious treats. However, holiday baking can get boring. People make the same thing year after year.
How can you add a little more magic to the kitchen? Try adding a special new ingredient!
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is an extract from cannabis that doesn’t get you high. CBD can easily be added to all sorts of recipes as a way to ingest it.
You won’t get high, but you’ll still experience all the medicinal benefits of cannabis. For example, CBD is proven to relieve pain. It can also reduce anxiety and depression.
How do you cook with CBD?
It can be added to any dish that includes an oil. There’s a slight herbal taste to CBD, so it works best when cooked with sweeter dishes.
With the holidays coming up so too is the time for all of your baking. Put a twist on all your holiday foods and desserts with these CBD recipes.
