Eating a CBD product as opposed to smoking or applying topically has some great benefits. The effects from an edible last longer by 2-4 hours. It takes longer to act but that is worth for the length of relief offered. There is no risk of lung irritation from the smoke. One can combine CBD with other herbs and spices to further enhance the benefits. The options with this method of consumption are limitless.
Points to Note
One must follow a few CBD cooking guidelines lest they commit faux pas. The following points are important as they prevent the instances of unfavorable CBD cooking experiences. They are simple need-to-knows.
One should not use actual marijuana in the recipe. This gives the edible a weird plant taste. The body might also reject it because that is not how it is designed to be ingested. In addition, it will not bind properly to the lipids. One should find already extracted CBD to infuse in the recipes.
A newbie should start by making a small batch. This way they will know whether the dosage in the edibles is apt or if it needs adjustment. It will also help one know if the ingredients are properly balanced. Special attention should be paid to rations.
One should start with the least possible CBD concentration. This ensures one does not overload the system. It is important to ease into CBD therapy. One must find a reliable supplier who does not sell harmful CBD. Different extraction methods determine whether one is shoveling toxins into their body or the complete opposite. CO2 extraction is the best. It uses extreme pressures and low temperatures to separate CBD from the other Cannabis elements and preserves its purity. One should be careful not to get CBD that has been extracted using ethanol or butane.
It is imperative that one keep an eye on the heat. Extreme heat will compromise the purity and potency of the CBD. It should not be used directly on a hot skillet or frying pan. The temperature used on CBD oil should be as hot as coffee, for instance. To avoid overcooking the CBD one can stick to recipes that do not the CBD oil to be heated like infusing it in condiments, for example.
One should use sweet or sour spices. CBD oil has a bit of a bitter taste that can ruin the snack. The spice will mask that taste and enhance deliciousness.
Herbs can also be used to further the cause of CBD. This is not to say that without these the CBD will not to work. It is akin to increasing the horsepower and torque of a Hennessey Venom F5. It is already the fastest car, enhancement will give it super speed.
Rosemary has beta-caryophyllene (BCP) which binds with the CB2 receptor. It has been found to be of great help for recovering addicts. It takes the action of CBD a step further.
Echinacea has N-aclethanolamines (NAEs) which have very CBD like properties. It can be an analgesic, antidepressant among other uses. It is like two kinds of CBDs working towards the same goal.
Ashwagandha is an Indian ayurvedic herb. It has great physical and mental healing properties. When used with CBD, they both gain super healing powers.
Black Cohosh is like an elixir of hormone imbalance. It interacts with the endocrine system to provide well-needed balance. It is favored by women in their later years as a mood stabilizer.
Lavender is beautiful and smells great. These two qualities are only the tip of the berg. It inspires calm and tranquility. It can be used topically but more aptly, in beverages and edibles.
Basil is another great herb especially in tea. It is an antioxidant, antibacterial and an anti-inflammatory. These are only a few of the many benefits of this herb. If paired with CBD, talk about a powerhouse of healing.
