The motivation for this write up came from one of the questions I receive regularly from readers. The person asked; “Can I cook with CBD oil?”
At first, I laughed really hard but on second thought, I reasoned that not only is the question a valid one, but there are plenty of others who might be thinking the same. I needed to write about it!
You see CBD oil is quite unlike most oils you must have tried in your cooking experiments. While it is possible to cook with CBD, there are a few rules to follow to achieve the best results and I have outlined them below.
When you consider cooking with CBD oil, kindly leave out your prized tincture; there are plenty of cost effective, organically grown oils on the market to suit your cooking need. Pre-infused oils are often the right candidates for this sort of venture and they not only taste great but they won’t cost an arm. Pre-infused oils are regular seed oils that have been infused with organic hemp oils. Examples include: Hemp Infused Olive Oil, Hemp canola oil, etc.
One thing to note though, ensure you buy only from reputable manufacturers to side step the danger of buying adulterated products or those which are not organic.
Too much heat would cause CBD to become less effective and can ruin you food by giving it a strange very bitter taste. Several experts suggest that CBD oil or even flowers in the case of baking should be added as the last recipe to the meal.
If you are baking with CBD flowers, ensure you turn down the oven to low heat and allow time do it’s magic. If CBD oil is your thing, it is more ideal to apply it at the end of your cooking cycle or in the case of cakes, they go better when mixed with the icing.
This is not to say you shouldn’t go all out with trying new ideas but, it is important to pay mind to what works with and what doesn’t work with CBD. Alcohol for instance is a bad mix with CBD. There are also some medications that can cause adverse reactions once they interact with cannabinoids. It is very important to let guest know you cooked with CBD if you would be inviting to eat.
So, now you've got it! Go explore, cook and conquer.

Cannabidiol (CBD) has been negatively affected by the effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is even true when it comes to memory. THC has been studied for far longer than CBD. As a result, we know how THC negatively affects cognitive functions.
Long term use of THC has been proven to cause the hippocampus to shrink. This is the part of the temporal lobe that is associated with memory. As a result, THC is blamed for people who partake often to have a bad memory.
Short term memory loss is the main culprit caused by extensive use of THC. Studies actually suggest that users who experiment with THC products will not be affected in the long term. Any damage caused will be repaired in a matter of weeks.
Have you ever wondered how CBD is made? No… Well, that’s the essence of today’s piece. In today’s article, we will be talking about the various forms of CBD and the extraction methods of CBD.
You must have come across individuals who consume CBD flowers raw. While it can be very unpleasant, it also doesn’t avail the individual of all the benefits of the plant. You see, for the cannabinoids in cannabis to be effective, they must be decarboxylated (applying heat).
Decarboxylation causes the plant to release all its useful properties and become easily absorbable by the body. Smoking hemp causes it to decarboxylate instantly but what if you don’t like to smoke? That’s where CBD extracts come to the rescue.
Marijuana, hemp and cannabis are terms that are often loosely used interchangeably. Without a grounded knowledge on what they mean and how they’re applied, you might make the same mistake many have made when speaking about cannabis and terms under the topic.
While it might seem that they mean the same thing, they are starkly different and can be applied to different purposes.
This is not to spoil the fun but for simplicity, it is the amount of THC content in a cannabis plant that differentiates hemp from marijuana.
Yea! I said it, but there is still more to know to gain a clearer understanding of what they mean and how to use them in conversations. In this article, we would define what each of the term means, their origin and how they differ from each other.
