CBD is infused in a lot of different products, but unlike THC or whole plant cannabis, it seems to rarely be featured in butter. The Gourmet Ghee Company not only infuses clarified and strained French butter with hemp, it ages the product to be of the most benefit to the body.
Indian food is most well known for its spices, but another component that makes it so delicious is ghee, which is used across the subcontinent in a variety of dishes. Utilizing grass fed butter from France, the Gourmet Ghee crew has brought the ghee game to a whole new level, keeping in tradition when it comes to cooking and baking, but also “highlighting the benefits of ghee to produce collagen, stronger hair, nails, & bones,” according to a press release.

Having personally tried the gourmet hemp ghee in cooking, I can attest to its delicious, almost nutty flavor, which enhances stir fry, eggs, toast or pretty much anything to be sauteed. It’s a treat that was even featured on “Dr. Oz” as being packed with ancient superfoods that are not flavored, but infused and, importantly, aged so that the goodness inside is enhanced.
The Gourmet Ghee Company is the first of its kind to be owned and operated by an Indian woman; her name is Nazia Aibani and she had this to say, “As the only Woman/Indian owned ghee butter company on the market we know the right way ghee is to be made & most importantly aged to maximize benefits.”
When ghee is clarified, it is strained of all milk fat, making it not only healthier for you, but also safe for the lactose intolerant. “All flavors were carefully chosen & target a specific health need and concern,” stated the company, “Everything from digestion, to fatigue, and even weight loss.”

The ten flavors available now are: Hemp, Saffron and Honey, California Medjool Gate, Silver leaf, 24k gold leaf, Black truffle and Roasted Garlic. I have also tried the Saffron and Honey ghee on a piece of toast with organic peanut butter and some sustainably sourced honey for that extra flavor and nutritional punch. Divine.
Curious about how clarified butter can be used in a cup of tea to maximize flavor and health bennies? Here’s a simple recipe for Hemp Ghee Tea:
- A nice tea is recommended: chamomile or green tea are lovely with this flavor
- Boil 1 cup of water with loose leaf tea or a tea bag
- Add 1 tablespoon of hemp ghee butter when tea is hot in the cup

And for a spicy treat, try Hemp Chai Tea, aka a “Hot Shot”:
- Boil 1/2 cup of milk
- Use 2 teaspoons of loose leaf chai or a chai tea bag
- Let chai boil on a low simmer for 5-6 minutes
- Strain loose chai leaves
- Add in one tablespoon of hemp ghee and enjoy
Creamer isn’t necessary in this already creamy chai, so just sit back, sip and immerse yourself in the gourmet ghee experience.
