Aggregating your favorite recipes with CBD: our tips for success
First, one of the most important things to know is that cannabidiol is a hydrophobic, lipophilic cannabinoid. In other words, it is only soluble in oil (or any other fat) and not in water. Including a fatty ingredient such as oil, honey, milk or butter when cooking with CBD is highly recommended to be able to enjoy all its benefits in an optimal way. Nothing could be simpler, since you will only need to either buy ready-made and already infused quality cooking oils or infuse your favorite aromatic oils yourself with the aim of using them to cook your food and then enhance your favorite sauces, broths and dressings.
Just be sure not to expose them to too high of temperatures as this may cause the cannabinoids to degrade.
To cook with CBD-rich buds, the decarboxylation step is mandatory. When vaporizing CBD, this process is done automatically via the device that turns on and heats up. In kitchen, it is necessary to carry out the maneuver oneself in order to be sure to obtain the desired effects. You can then roughly grind the heads, then spread them out on a baking sheet covered with baking paper. Place the whole thing in the oven at a low heat, not exceeding 120° C for about half an hour. The heads will then be ready to infuse the fat of your choice (olive oil, rapeseed oil, coconut oil etc.).
CBD cooking: unparalleled benefits
The oral mode of CBD administration is the most common due to its convenience. When ingested, the effects of CBD last for several hours due to digestion as well as liver metabolism. Ingestion offers a slower and gradual release of the molecule in the body.
Therefore, without danger, CBD cooking is the most effective and least risky mode of consumption, while allowing the combination of culinary pleasure and herbal medicine.
