What better way to spice up your holiday cheer than with an infusion of Cannabidiol (CBD) oil in your cooking?
CBD Oil can be used for everything from sautée sauces to your baked desserts batter. You can adjust the amounts according to your taste or preferences. It’s a very versatile ingredient!
Here are our top tips for cooking with CBD oil this holiday season.
1. Create Your Own CBD Butter
CBD oil can be made into its own butter and stored for future use. To make CBD butter, melt another kind of fat or oil (butter, coconut oil, etc.) over low heat, then add in CBD oil. Pour the mixture into a jar, and let it cool in a dark place. Once you create your own CBD butter, you can use it again and again during the holidays.
2. Beware of the heat
When it comes to baking with CBD oil, temperature matters. When the temperature gets higher than 365°F, it tends to evaporate, so try using recipes that bake at a lower temperature.
3. Try savory snacks, too.
People often associate CBD oil with baked goods, but it can be used in savory snack too. One of the best is a CBD oil guacamole, which you can make by combining:
- 3 Avocados
- Lime juice
- Chopped onions
- Chopped Tomatoes
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 clove of fresh garlic
- 1 teaspoon of CBD oil
5. Have fun with it
Cooking is an art, and so is cooking with CBD oil. Who knows??? There may even be people that you know that have some great CBD oil powered recipes of their OWN that you can trade with! Learn from everyone’s tips, and then go make your own special concoctions. The important thing is that it tastes good and you enjoy the festive holiday vibes.
The benefits of CBD oil are many: pain relief, immune system boosting, and anti-anxiety (let’s get real…the holidays can be stressful) are just a few of the reasons you should use it in cooking!
