CBD Isolate Recipe
Cooking with CBD isolate is easier than most people realize, and can be rewarding too.
Meals that were once boring can become inspired by you and suddenly become more interesting. You can turn any recipe into a cannabidiol recipe by simply using CBD isolate powder in a carrier oil and substituting that oil for the oil the recipe calls for.
If you have ever used a double boiler, then you may be familiar with how to mix ingredients together in a way that uses less heat so they blend more evenly and do not burn. This kind of double boiling method is used to simply control the heat for ingredients you wouldn’t want to be exposed to high heat, such as cannabidiol. The double boiling method is important because it is you can turn pure CBD isolate powder into an ingredient that can be used in just about any recipe. When cooking with CBD isolate, you will always want to first infuse the CBD isolate with a carrier oil.
A Deeper Look into CBD Isolate Recipes
What is a Carrier Oil?
Simply put, a carrier oil, also known as a base oil, is a plant-derived oil which is used to “carry” essential oils and plant supplements like CBD. Essential oils and plant supplements can be overly potent or difficult for us to absorb directly, so carrier oils are used to help facilitate the process. Some carrier oils have different benefits can have different results depending on the different plants they are mixed with.
For example, unrefined coconut MCT oil provides better absorption of CBD than other carrier oils. MCT oil also happens to be one of the best carrier oils to use when cooking with CBD isolate because it is relatively tasteless.
You can experiment with different doses, but a good simple rule of thumb is that if you are cooking with one gram of CBD isolate powder, you’ll want to use 1-2 teaspoons of carrier oil.
When the water in your double boiler is boiling you will want to add your carrier oil and the isolate to the smaller inner pot for mixing. You will need to stir the mixture for about 10-15 minutes. Be sure to blend your isolate with the carrier oil well. Once it is fully mixed and of one consistency, turn off your boiler and allow it to fully cool. Once cooled pour your CBD infused carrier oil into a separate container for further use in cooking.
Another thing to keep in mind when cooking with CBD is the temperature. Higher temperatures can cause you to burn off the cannabidiol that you’re trying to infuse into your food. A good rule of thumb here is never cook CBD above 315 degrees F if you can help it.
Below is a simple recipe for CBD infused guacamole, although this is just an example. You can use your CBD and carrier oil in any recipe that calls for oil by substituting it.
7 avocados (mashed)
½ diced onion (red)
1 tomato (diced)
3 jalapenos (diced)
3 serranos (diced)
4 cloves of garlic (diced)
Ground Black Pepper
½ gram CBD Isolate
1 tsp coconut MCT Oil
- Use the double boiling method to infuse CBD isolate with MCT oil
- Mix avocados, onions, tomato, garlic and peppers in a mixing bowl
- Add CBD infused MCT oil, lime juice, salt and pepper, mix well
- Check taste along the way as you go and make adjustments as needed.
- Once all the ingredients are mixed well your CBD guacamole is ready to eat.
