Delicious Summer Recipes Using CBD Oil

Indulge and relax simultaneously with CBD-infused recipes!

Benefits of Cooking with CBD

Baking and cooking with CBD is a great way to enjoy delicious eats and treats all while reaping the benefits of this healing oil. On the market, there are a variety of premade CBD-infused treats. However, making your own CBD goodies is an easier way to control how much cannabis oil is used and what ingredients are in the recipe. Not to mention, making your own CBD snacks and dishes is a great way to save money (as most CBD edibles range from $15-30!).


When thinking about CBD treats, most people’s minds might automatically think of brownies—they’re a cliche cannabis dessert. Sure, those chocolatey squares are the perfect baked good to include CBD oil in, but there is so much more you can do with cannabis oil than merely adding it to brownies.


From savory recipes like pasta dishes and salad dressings, to recipes that satisfy your sweet tooth such as creamy smoothies and chocolate chip cookies, there is truly a recipe for everyone regardless of dietary restrictions and cravings.
