3 CBD Recipes for Cooking With CBD Oil

The CBD craze is far from over and more and more people want to incorporate the cannabinoid into their everyday lives to experience the benefits of this organic substance. But apart from ready products you can get online, such as CBD oil tinctures, vape pens, or edibles, many users are ready to experiment a little on their own and unleash their inner chef while trying some cooking with CBD oil.

Luckily, you don’t need to come from a Michelin-starred background to cook something tasty for yourself and your family or friends. In this article, you’ll learn everything you need to know about cooking with CBD oil, from the theory to practice, so you can start turning ordinary CBD oil into tasty meals for your loved ones.

What is CBD oil?

Before we talk about what CBD oil is, let’s take a moment to explain the main substance used in the production – CBD. CBD is an organic substance found in cannabis plants. It’s a part of a group of substances called cannabinoids, over 100 of which have been already identified to be present in cannabis plants. 

Other examples of cannabinoids include THC, which you’ve probably heard about or maybe even tried. It’s worth mentioning, however, that different cannabinoids offer different properties and CBD is different from THC in many aspects, most notable of which is the fact that it doesn’t offer any psychoactive effects.

CBD oil is manufactured by extracting CBD from cannabis plants, usually with a method called CO2 extraction, and then purifying the mixture until it reaches an optimal concentration of CBD. Depending on the final product, it might then get diluted to decrease the amounts of CBD in every drop to ensure a wide variety of choices for customers looking for different concentrations of CBD oil.

Is CBD oil legal?

Because CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive properties and doesn’t cause anybody impairment THC is known for, for example, its legal status is much more relaxed. Currently, you can buy CBD in any shape or form, including CBD oil, in all 50 US states and because it’s legal in the entire United States, you can order it online and have it shipped directly to your door from anywhere in the country.

One thing to remember when buying CBD oil, though, is to pay close attention to whether it contains any THC. Some CBD products, such as the full-spectrum variations, contain other cannabinoids, such as CBG and CBN, which are also legal in the US, but they might also contain THC. In the states that have explicitly banned THC for recreational use, your CBD oil can contain up to 0.3% of THC in order to be classified as legal, and although the majority of manufacturers follow this rule, make sure to double-check because you buy your next CBD oil tincture online.  

How is CBD used in cooking?

CBD can be used for cooking in a variety of different ways, depending on what you’re cooking. From CBD-infused ready products, such as CBD coffee or CBD-infused olive oil to adding CBD oil separately to your recipe, the sky’s the limit when it comes to cooking CBD meals.

In general, it’s safe to say that you can add CBD to any meal or replace any ingredient with its CBD-infused alternative. That goes for any products you’re making, whether that’s cooking, baking, or anything you’d like to do in your kitchen. 

One thing to remember when cooking with CBD oil, though, is to properly adjust the dose. Based on how many people you’ll split the meal with, make sure that everybody will get a reasonable amount of CBD because it might be easy to go a step too far when cooking so make sure you stop for a moment and calculate how much of the substance you really need to get the desired benefits. And while taking a bit too much won’t hurt anybody, it’s always better to play on the safe side than experiment with high doses right away.

Does cooking with CBD make you high?

Unlike THC, CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive substances and it won’t make you high. That applies to all forms of CBD, whether it’s CBD oil, vape carts, or edibles, even the ones you prepare yourself. It’s also worth mentioning that processing CBD in any shape or form does not make it psychoactive or deprive it of any of its properties, as long as we’re talking about regular cooking inside of a kitchen and no chemical processing.

So, it doesn’t matter how much CBD you take because you’ll never experience any psychoactive effects because it’s just not what CBD is taken for. Still, do keep in mind that there are certain limitations as to how much CBD you should take for optimal benefits so make sure to add as much CBD to your cooking as you would while taking CBD separately.

What happens when you cook CBD?  

When you’re preparing a meal and adding CBD oil to the mixture, it’ll get mixed up with the rest of the ingredients seamlessly, just like adding any ingredients, such as olive oil, would. After baking, it will then solidify all the ingredients together and you’ll get a meal infused with CBD. Depending on whether you used flavored CBD oil, you might feel it in the meal, but because you’ll often use very small amounts of the oil, its taste will be almost untraceable in most cases.

Does heat ruin CBD oil?             

In general, nothing should happen when you heat CBD oil for cooking. Your CBD oil should retain its properties and it should work just as well when baked and brought back to room temperature. However, some experts believe that excessive overheating may in fact cause CBD oil to lose some of its properties. That’s why it’s recommended you don’t exceed 320 ˚F when baking. If the temperature is higher in the recipe, try to decrease it and instead hold your meal in the oven for a bit longer.

Can you put CBD oil on a cookie?

When you find a great CBD cookie recipe, you can either add CBD oil to the dough while preparing your CBD cookies, which is the most popular way of doing things, but you can also pour it onto an already-baked cookie, though there are some limitations to the second approach. 

While you can better dose the CBD and potentially use different doses of CBD on different cookies this way, the oil might pour off the cookie and it might make your hands greasy. With that being said, adding CBD oil on a cookie might not be the most convenient thing to do both for you and for people who will then eat your CBD cookies.

What to mix with CBD oil?

When it comes to what products you can mix with CBD oil, the possibilities are truly endless. You can prepare “regular” recipes, that is non-CBD ones, and add CBD as an extra in the desired amounts. You can also replace ordinary products with their CBD-induced variations and even add CBD oil on top of that, though if you decide to do this you need to be very cautious and make sure that the overall concentration of CBD won’t be too high now that you’ve included so many different CBD-infused ingredients.

In general, though, you can mix anything with CBD oil as long as you keep the doses at a healthy level. There’s nothing in CBD oil or CBD cooking products that would potentially prevent it from being mixed with other ingredients so you’re free to do whatever you want when the dose is adjusted properly.
