DIY edibles have been a tradition in the community for decades. Cooking with our favorite plant extract can effortlessly be done in any kitchen that has a stove. Many of the top CBD oil companies don’t offer edibles on their website. With this guide, you can easily continue to support their favorite company and enjoy the experience of eating CBD edibles.
The key to making your own CBD edibles recipes is creating infused butter. Having a usable batch of CBD butter opens up the opportunity to make infused CBD edibles any time you want.
How to Make CBD Edibles
Making CBD oil butter is easy, and once you have a batch, you can use it in a CBD isolate recipe or full-spectrum recipe to make any food that contains butter. DIY infused CBD edibles can be easily achieved for a lower price than buying them from a retailer, and you have the freedom to make the food of your choice.
CBD gummies, CBD chocolate, and CBD brownies are all possible if you have CBD butter. Here are the ingredients you will need.
- 20 ml of CBD oil
- 2 cups of butter
- 1 cup of water
With these three ingredients, CBD edible enthusiasts can create their own CBD edibles recipes.
CBD Oils and Edibles
Making CBD butter is easy. First, chop up the butter into small pieces. Add all ingredients to a small pot. Heat on the stove over low heat for two hours. It is essential to keep the heat low; if the CBD gets too hot, it will cook out.
Take the mixture off the stove and let it cool for 5 minutes. Stir and pour into a plastic container with a lid. Allow the mixture to refrigerate overnight.
Now you have usable CBD butter ready to infuse any food to get your daily dose of CBD.
How to Make CBD Brownies
Once you have CBD butter, it’s time to put your mixture to the test. Brownies are a longstanding tradition in the infused community. While CBD gummy recipes are gaining popularity, brownies will always be the original go-to infusion.
For your CBD infused brownies, you will need:
- ½ cup of CBD butter
- Two eggs
- One teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees, then grease and flour an 8-inch pan.
In the large saucepan, melt the CBD butter, remove it from the stove and stir in sugar, egg, and vanilla.
Beat in cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread your brownie mixture on the pan you prepared.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Make sure you don’t overcook. Infusion chefs shouldn’t cook edibles over 375 degrees, or the CBD will cook out and become useless. Keep that in mind when you are ready to try other infusions.
Buy CBD Edibles
If you don’t want to go through the process of making the butter and cooking brownies, there are plenty of options available online. Since the CBD market exploded, more companies are offering CBD edibles online for reasonable prices.
No matter if you choose your own or are buying from a reputable CBD retailer, be sure to dose consistently. For users to experience the benefits of CBD edibles, you must eat a little bit more than what you would take using other methods. A 25mg dose of CBD oil taken sublingually will be more effective than a 25mg brownie.
If bioavailability is taken into consideration, edibles can be a great way to experience the benefits of CBD.
