Cannabis in Pots: Tips for Cooking Meals With CBD Oil

CBD Oil

Since scientists discovered multiple health benefits of cannabidiol (CBD), it has become one of the most in-demand substances in the market today. Hence, manufacturers have come up with a wide variety of CBD-infused products in the market. From gummies and brownies to sodas and tonic water, this cannabinoid is slowly becoming a part of the American diet.

Research has shown that this compound derived from cannabis and hemp has a wide range of health-promoting properties. Aside from relieving pain, it can also help prevent and treat anxiety, depression, epileptic seizures, and other serious, life-threatening diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and a lot more based on clinical and anecdotal evidence.

Because of these health-promoting qualities, many mothers and homemakers are slowly using CBD oil (especially hemp-derived ones) in preparing nutritious and energy-boosting meals. Since medical marijuana has been legalized in 33 states, anyone can buy CBD oil for cooking online or in dispensaries. With this new ingredient, anyone can enjoy a hearty meal containing the healing powers of cannabidiol.

Tips for Cooking with CBD Oil

But before you experiment with CBD oil in your kitchen, you should first take note of some tips from cannabis experts:

Start Small

CBD oil is relatively new to your taste buds. Like any other ingredients foreign to you, need to find the right amount that will suit your palate. Cannabidiol has a particular texture that might not please some people. Some even have allergic reactions to this substance. So, to avoid problems, start with a small dosage in your salad, cookies, and even your coffee and smoothies. Then, gradually increase it once you and your family get used to it.

Buy Only High-Quality Brands

An inferior CBD oil does not only have an unattractive taste; it can also put your health at risk. In extracting cannabidiol from cannabis or hemp, many brands, particularly those with ridiculously low price may use toxic solvents. Also, it might contain high amounts of THC that can make you intoxicated or “stoned.” Instead of promoting health and wellness, buying inferior brands might even cause lead to health problems.

To buy high-quality variants, you should do some research online to find out which companies produce the best CBD hemp oil. Aside from determining the reputation of the manufacturer, you should also check whether the brand you are buying passes quality standards and lab results.

Temperature Matters

The overall quality of cannabidiol breaks down when exposed to extreme heat (more than 200 degrees Fahrenheit). So, to maintain the purity of CBD oil, you must not present it on a direct flame. Doing so can lead to the loss of terpenes and other essential nutrients where the substance’s health benefits come from.

Also, be sure to stir the food on a regularly during cooking. This action will help distribute the CBD oil throughout the dish while preventing it from overheating.

Store It Properly

Cannabidiol products are sensitive to both heat and light. The best place to store it is a cool and dry pantry. And while you can store it in the refrigerator, you should also check the temperature as CBD oil can become thick once it gets too cold.

If properly stored, CBD oil can last a year or even more. You should also be aware of the cannabinoid’s carrier liquid. Cannabidiol extracts are diluted in a carrier liquid such as oils from hemp seed or coconut. Just store your CBD oil in the same method you would use in storing the carrier liquid. Also, see to it that you keep it in a place that small children cannot reach.

By cooking dishes with CBD Oil, you can now have a delectable meal that would also boost the health and wellness of your family.

3 CBD Edibles for Your Halloween Party

CBD Edibles for Your Halloween Party

With Halloween only less than a month away, you may have found yourself dreaming up of some Halloween-themed edibles to go with your costume. From the hardcore characters of La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) to the Harry Potter trio crowd favorite, there are surely endless designs to complement your next haunted gathering. Whether you’re looking for CBD oil edibles to cannabis-laced drinks, these Halloween-themed snacks are sure to knock your socks off.

CBD Edibles – Easy to Prepare Recipes

Canna-Caramels

One of the easiest treats you can make all throughout the year is canna-caramels. With its only ingredients being half a cup of sugar, 1 and a half sticks of cannabutter, 3 tablespoons of light corn syrup, and a can of sweetened condensed milk, you might just find yourself making these every so often.

To make this, simply combine all of the ingredients together over a medium-sized pot or saucepan placed over medium heat. Allow this to boil, then proceed with lowering the heat. Simmer and allow to thicken for around 7 to 10 minutes. Once the mixture turns into a golden-brown color, you’ll know that this is ready. Afterward, pour the caramel into a pan lined with wax paper and allow to cool for 1 to 2 hours. Once it hardens, cut into bite-sized pieces. To go the extra mile, decorate this with some chocolate chips which can act as the eyes and drizzle with chocolate sauce for that mummy effect.

Cannabis Caramel Apple

Caramel apples have long been a Halloween tradition for many. If you want to serve this elevated childhood staple to your guests, make sure to add some of that CBD oil into the mix and let it work its magic.

The ingredients you’ll need to make these include 8 Fuji apples, half a cup of cannabutter, half a cup of brown sugar, half a cup of light corn syrup, half a cup of sweetened condensed milk, 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract, and some nuts and candies of choice to decorate. If you are not a fan of red Fuji apples, you can also opt to use green apples as a replacement. You also need some parchment paper, wooden sticks, and a candy thermometer.

Start by placing the sticks in the apples and cleaning it thoroughly. Then, combine all the remaining ingredients except for the vanilla extract, nuts, and candies over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil and mix constantly, carefully ensuring no burnt areas. Allow the caramel to thicken for 25 to 30 minutes. Then, stir in the vanilla. Once your mixture is ready, dip and swirl the apples to achieve a smooth, even coating. Decorate the apples and allow it to cool.

Dirt Pudding Cups with CBD Gummy Edibles

Dirt pudding cups are a treat for kids at heart. With colorful CBD gummy edibles topping your creation, you’re sure to encourage guests to take more than their share. Dig in and find treasures within.

For this recipe, you need a 15-ounce package of Oreos or other similar chocolate sandwich cookies, a 3.9 ounce instant chocolate pudding, 2 cups of cold milk, 8 ounces of whipped cream or any whipped topping, and 24 pieces of gummy edibles.

To make the dirt, crush the chocolate cookies until fine inside a plastic bag with the help of a rolling pin. In a separate bowl, make the pudding by mixing the packet with milk. Whisk until smooth and let sit until the mixture thickens. Once it has set, add the cream or whipped topping and half of the cookie crumbs. Divide the mixture into separate cups, top with more cookie crumbs, and decorate with CBD gummies. And voila, you’re done!

 

Make your celebrations more interesting this Halloween. With these cannabis recipes, you can definitely have a real good time with fellow cannabis enthusiasts.

  • CatDog

Another classic contender on our list is none other than Nickelodeon’s CatDog. Following the story of a conjoined cat and dog sibling, as they struggle to live a normal life, the show remarkably offers a good dose of humor and interesting oddness.
