3 Tips for Cooking with CBD

Monday October 14, 2019

There are endless products available from creams to gummies and beauty products. And now, some have even chosen to incorporate CBD into foods.

According to those in the know at Koi CBD, there are several factors that one should consider while cooking with CBD. Just to start, here are three:

Use fat
Keep in mind that cannabinoids bind well with fat, so CBD needs to be infused into a fat or oil-based ingredient like butter, ghee, or coconut oil in order to increase bio-availability and receive the full benefits of the compound.

Avoid heat
When cooking with CBD, be careful when it comes to applying heat as excessive temperatures can cause it to evaporate and lose potency. This is one reason why many people love using CBD oil as a finishing touch on meals—try drizzling the oil over avocado toast, pizza, eggs, or mixing it into pesto.

Try savory
You'll often find CBD-infused sweets and baked goods because it's generally easier to cover up the inherent bitterness of lower-quality CBD with sugar or chocolate. However, a high-quality CBD oil is perfect for use in savory dishes. CBD oil works great in salad dressing; you can also add it to soups and pasta sauces.
