Homecooked meals made with fresh ingredients will always be preferred by many. Apart from practical reasons, cooking and baking at home can also be therapeutic. CBD desserts are especially popular because of their sweet and tasty nature.
With hundreds of recipes to choose from the internet, you’ll never run out of ideas. Not only that, but you can experiment by adding uncommon ingredients like cannabidiol (CBD) oil into your favorite sweets. There are no worries about eating your weight in CBD-infused desserts. CBD edibles are non-psychoactive, meaning they will not get you high.
Instead, by incorporating CBD into your food, multiple health benefits could take effect. This includes feeling relaxed and overall relieving your stress and anxiety. CBD dessert recipes may also help reduce inflammation and improve blood circulation. If you plan to eat these CBD desserts at night, they may also help with proper and restful sleep throughout the night.
How to Bake with CBD Oil
When baking with CBD oil, quality is always important. Only purchase from licensed companies that make their products from organic hemp plants. There are three types of CBD oil commonly sold and bought: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolates.
Full-spectrum CBD contains most of the active cannabinoids from the plant matter cannabidiol was extracted from. This includes a very low dose of THC, no more than 0.3% as per the legal level. Broad-spectrum also contains other cannabinoids except for THC. Isolates are pure, potent cannabidiol and are often pricier because of the tedious process in making them.
Knowing which type of hemp oil to use for your CBD desserts will help determine its side effects in the body. Hemp oil should come in the form of lipid or fat when added to food. This will ensure that it will be absorbed by the ingredients completely. Some mix their cannabidiol oil into melted butter and set it aside for easy storage for their next CBD-infused recipe.

CBD Baking FAQs
What is the best carrier of CBD oil?
Baking CBD-infused recipes is a great way to get your daily dose of cannabis in a delicious and healthier way. Full-spectrum tincture oils come in flavors of cinnamon, lavender, and orange blossom to add flavor to your already yummy desserts.
Can I heat CBD oil?
When cooking with CBD desserts, it is important to remember that CBD hemp oil should not be directly heated. It is not a replacement for cooking oils. CBD oil is commonly mixed with other wet ingredients when baking so it is directly and thoroughly absorbed.
Can I bake using other hemp products?
Some create their own CBD oil instead of buying store-bought ones. This is certainly an option if you have raw hemp plants available. Infusing the hemp buds in carrier oils like coconut oil or olive oil for several days will result in a home-made CBD oil mixture.
