Here’s What You Need To Know About Baking With CBD

If you haven’t heard of CBD and it’s impact on the wellness industry, then you’ve been living under a rock. The restorative and non-hallucinogenic compound has been called many things, including, but not limited to: a fad, the best thing that’s ever happened to patients who need pain relief, and one of the most profitable business ventures of the future. It’s okay if you’re feeling a little curious and want to give it a try.

While there’s tons of CBD products and edibles out there, the FDA is still closely monitoring the compound. While this is annoying, it’s also a good opportunity to get creative, especially if you’re feeling like having a delicious brownie that will also relax you and get you de-stressed. Here’s what you need to know about baking with CBD.

CBD won’t get you high, but it will help you cope with anxiety and pain. It might also help you have a better sleep and relax your nervous system after a particularly grueling week or day. It’s important to know that CBD remains a mystery, and that it can affect people in different ways. For some that means blissful calm and for others it means the chance to sleep like a log. Both options sound great.

If you plan to bake CBD into a cake, a brownie, or a savory dish, you need the compound to be extracted into some sort of fat. Full spectrum CBD tinctures are the best option for beginners.

When it comes to the amount of CBD you want to use, it all depends on your desired dosage. If you’re baking 6 cookies, then you multiply that number with the dosage and use that amount of oil.

The recommended dosage is a prickly topic, one that’s influenced by the fact that the FDA has not granted CBD an official serving size. It’s a trial an error process, but a good rule of thumb is to calculate the dosage according to your body weight. You can also use the CBD oil’s recommended serving per cookie or brownie.

While CBD can be incorporated into any sweet and savory recipe, it’s best to start off with something that you’ve done plenty of times before. Later, once you’ve had a few trial runs, feel free to try out new recipes and to get creative with your cooking.
