Cooking with cannabis is one thing; cooking properly with cannabis is another

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a remarkable cannabinoid with a host of benefits. Adding the cannabis compound to your favorite recipes is one of the best ways to enjoy its versatile effects. However, making recipes that include this ingredient must be done with care. As the popularity of new CBD products increases, you may start to see them added to a variety of foods and beverages such as coffee, chocolates, brownies and candies, but start by learning several tips that will help you in the kitchen, whenever you want to prepare any of these delicious dishes by adding the magical ingredient of CBD oil.

First, choose the right CBD product, especially since its range of variations is too large and some may be more useful than others depending on the recipe. Today, there are CBD-infused oils, CBD-infused edibles, tinctures, smokable powders and so on. For example, the best cannabidiol-based products for cooking are CBD-infused oils because they are intended for oral administration and are easy to add to any recipe.

If you are new to cannabis and its environment, be careful when adding the plant’s other famous compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is mainly due to its psychoactive effects, something that does not happen with CBD. The dosage has to be moderate, as exposure to high levels of this compound could induce a series of psychedelic effects, such as hallucinations, and that’s the last thing you want to get after a great meal.

On the other hand, always be mindful of the temperature, as heat is a common factor that facilitates the degradation of cannabidiol. When CBD degrades, it becomes less potent and that’s not the point. Its boiling point ranges from 320 to 356 degrees Fahrenheit, so always try to keep the temperature below those levels whenever cooking with CBD oil.

CBD, like many other cannabis compounds, is fat-soluble and since we almost always use some type of fat for cooking, adding CBD to your favorite recipes is very easy, so don’t be afraid to go out on a limb.
