This ensures you find the perfect dosage for you and your needs and ensures you create a culinary masterpiece every time.
How do you cook with CBD oil?
If you’re unsure about using CBD in your cooking, start with a small dose and increase as needed the next time around. It’s always best to put too little in and increase slowly as you become more confident.
Adding the CBD oil to your recipes is super simple. If you’re enjoying a salad or sandwich, you can add the CBD oil to your dressing or even to your butter. For smoothies, add it straight to the blender and mix it up with the other ingredients.
The best ways to use CBD when cooking
As CBD oil is fat soluble, pairing it with recipes that have oil, butter or other forms of fat is a great combination. It’s important however, to not directly heat the CBD oil, as this can decrease the effect that the oil has within the recipe. Instead, make sure to add the CBD last where possible. Try and avoid temperatures over 175⁰C, as this can result in a bitter taste within your final product.
For optimal results, infuse ingredients with the oil before using it within your recipe. This helps to reduce oil wastage and improves taste and texture. If you’re including the oil in a dressing or sauce, add it while you are still prepping and make sure it’s mixed in well.
