Do you like to cook? You are definitely not alone and cooking is one of the favorite pastimes for many. Why not make this activity more interesting by involving a new ingredient - CBD or cannabidiol?
One of the easiest ways to incorporate CBD into your life is to add it when preparing a meal. Adding CBD to cooking has several benefits, one of which is the greater availability of products and the ability to find a way to receive CBD in a more convenient and tasty way. Cooking with CBD also helps to mask the taste of cannabis that is found in cannabis flowers and oils, and in this way it is possible to take higher doses with CBD at any time you want. Let's also talk about what you should know to make super delicious, CBD-containing dishes at home.
The first step in preparing CBD-containing dishes is to find good quality CBD oil. Be sure to choose a CBD from a trusted vendor that offers a high quality product that is lab tested and able to document. This way you will be sure that the product is free of pesticides and GMOs and is made from quality raw materials. And since medium-chain triglycerides are known to help the body digest and absorb CBD better, it is recommended to choose products made with MTC coconut oil or other healthy fatty oils, such as avocado oil.
The second step is to always choose full spectrum or broad spectrum CBD oil. The full spectrum means that the oil contains all the major and lesser-known cannabionids found in cannabis, as well as other organic compounds such as terpenes. CBD developed in this way retains its full-scale therapeutic properties and will be able to offer better efficacy than cannabioids isolated or isolated.
The next thing to pay attention to is the strength of the oil or the potency of the ready-made food. Start with a calculation in which you will understand how much CBD will contain 1ml of oil (for example, 1ml of oil contains 20mg of CBD). You can then decide how potent you want the food of your choice to cook (for example, the amount of CBD in each cake). But based on experience, 10 mg is the optimal amount per cup. Multiply this number by the desired number of cupcakes and you will get the required amount of oil. There are many useful calculators on the Internet for this purpose.
For example, you calculated that 1 ml of your CBD oil contains 20 mg of CBD. And maybe you will prepare food for a party of 20 guests. So you will need 20 ml of oil or about one tablespoon. In this case, you want to find a recipe that uses a small amount of CBD oil (a few tablespoons), such as a cookie. Cakes and cupcakes use a much larger amount of oil and these dishes will definitely be more potent and have a higher amount of CBD in them.
All you have to do is balance the recipe. If you use a tablespoon of CBD oil and the recipe requires four tablespoons, then use the remaining three menus of oil without CBD.
This is definitely also the time to experiment with flavours. Especially for people who don't like the cannabis taste of CBD oil. Chocolate is one of the good ways to suppress this taste. Extra dark chocolate, which has a stronger taste than milk chocolate. You can definitely use your favourite spices and look for new ways to surprise yourself.
The last step is to prepare your chosen delicacy. Because CBDs contain volatile organic compounds (such as terpenes) that evaporate at low temperatures, you should definitely choose foods that do not require a temperature above 175 degrees Celsius. This will ensure that the plant's phytocannabionides remain intact, providing a much greater medicinal effect.
Cooking using the CBD is a very enjoyable challenge. It's also a new, fun way to cook, and there are definitely many new discoveries in the process, so don't be afraid to experiment and surprise yourself. We are all fascinated by the good qualities of CBD and this is a way to show these qualities to a wider audience - with their favorite dishes.
