Recipes with CBD Oil

CBD oil is being touted by its users as having extraordinary medicinal properties, using it for treating depression, anxiety, insomnia, inflammation, and pain, among others. Quite what CBD does and how it does it is the subject of intensive study by scientists around the world.

Cannabidiol is found in significant quantities in the leaves of the hemp plant, which is a member of the cannabis family of plants. Unlike another cannabis component, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD doesn’t have psychoactive effects, so it won’t make you high.

The most common way that CBD is used is in an oil form that can be administered topically or sublingually. But there is a growing awareness about using CBD in your cooking to ingest it orally. 

Lots of recipes incorporating CBD abound, but here are a few you should definitely try first:
