Cooking with CBD: Recipes and Ideas for Adding CBD to Food and Drinks


CBD has become a popular supplement for its many health benefits. For those looking to get creative in the kitchen, CBD can easily be incorporated into recipes. Read on for tips, ideas, and recipes for cooking and baking with CBD.

Choosing a CBD Oil for Cooking

When cooking with CBD, it’s important to use a high quality, pure CBD oil meant for oral consumption. Avoid CBD tinctures with added flavorings. The oil should contain medium-chain triglycerides (MCT oil) which acts as an emulsifier so the CBD blends smoothly into recipes.

Adding CBD Oil to Drinks

One simple way to consume CBD is to add a few drops of CBD oil into your morning coffee, tea, smoothie, juice, or other beverage. The oil will disperse through the drink when stirred. Add based on your desired CBD dosage, starting with 1-5mg per serving.

Infusing CBD into Healthy Recipes

CBD works well in recipes that contain butter, oil or cream. When heated, the fat helps the CBD dissolve evenly into the dish. Try adding CBD into soups, sauces, roasted veggies, pasta, granola, pesto, guacamole, hummus, and more.

Baking with CBD Oil

Replace the oil or butter called for in baked goods recipes with your preferred dose of CBD oil instead. This discreetly incorporates the CBD into snacks like muffins, brownies, breads and more. For every 1/4 cup of oil, use 15-25mg CBD.

Whipping Up CBD Beverages

Make your own CBD beverages by blending the oil into smoothies, milkshakes, lattes, hot chocolate, lemonade, and other cold or hot drinks. Add 1-5mg CBD oil per serving along with your other ingredients. Shake or blend well to incorporate it.

Getting Creative in the Kitchen with CBD

Once you understand the basics of cooking with CBD oil, get creative and add it into your own favorite recipes. Spread it onto toast, mix it into oatmeal or overnight oats, blend it into pesto, fold it into waffle batter, add it to salad dressings – the possibilities are endless.

With some experimentation, you can seamlessly add CBD into almost any dish or drink for an extra wellness boost. Just be sure to carefully track the CBD doses in each portion.
