CBD oil has a long list of purposes and preparations. Some people prefer to buy candies and gummies for convenience purposes. Others vape or use oils. Just like any other type of cannabis foodie, some people prefer their CBDs included in their food, using the tastes of food to cover the taste of the oil.
Here are a few recipes that will get you started cooking with CBD oil. You’ll learn to make CBD butter and CBD oil fudge, which makes a great gift during the holidays to friends and relatives who also use CBDs to help with medical conditions.
Let’s start with CBD oil butter, the easiest thing to make.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own CBD oil infused butter:
- 4 sticks unsalted butter
- 10 grams NakedCBD Oil
- 4 cups water
- Cut the butter into tbsp size pieces
- Put the butter, water, and cbd oil in a small pot over low heat.
- Gently stir mixture every half hour. Make sure to use a metal spoon. It’ll take 3-4 hours to thicken.
- The water will evaporate and leave glossy and dense butter. Remove it from the stove and let it cool before you remove it from the pot.
- The butter will need a couple hours in the fridge before it’s ok to use. Store it in a tightly sealed glass jar.
Tip: Stirring a little honey into the finished product will improve the taste and make it yummy on bagels, rolls, and in cooking.
Next is fudge, another fun and easy treat. This is a great way to create even portions of your CBDs, even when you’re cooking with them. Just divide the amount of CBD oil you add by the number of evenly cut squares of fudge you create, and presto!
