5 of the Best CBD-Based Recipes
When it comes to CBD edibles, you’ll hear a lot of people say that it’s best to make your own. That way, you know exactly what’s in it, you know you’ll like the taste, and you also get to enjoy a sense of accomplishment! This is why so many people want to make their very own CBD creations in the kitchen, but sometimes, it can be hard to decide what to cook.
Luckily, there are plenty of recipes out there on the internet to try. Below we have picked out five of our absolute favorites, including some sweet treats and some savory delights.
Something to note, however, is that you’ll need to work out some of the dosing for yourself. Everybody requires a different strength of CBD oil, and therefore you need to work out what potency you need based on the quantities in each recipe. If necessary, you can adjust these quantities in order to make sure you’re getting the right CBD dosage.
We hope you enjoy these delicious recipes — stay healthy!
