Even though CBD edibles may not be legal to serve in restaurants presently, doesn’t mean you cannot bake up a storm in your kitchen of CBD hemp flower cookies recipes. For this, it is relatively simple with two important points to remember:
- Both THC and CBD MUST be decarboxylated for maximum benefit.
- Cannabidiol is fat soluble meaning it breaks down, is stored and nourishes the body in fat.
Incorporating Decarbed CBD Hemp Flower
You can incorporate decarboxylated CBD hemp flower into any recipe, but with all things new start with your very own favorite cookie or brownie or muffin recipe.
If you use decarboxylated and then ground CBD hemp flower, you can exchange of 25% of the regular flower with CBD hemp flower so long as there is a oil such as coconut oil also in the recipe. You can also use your own CBD-infused butter in the recipe rather than regular butter.
