Advantages Of Cooking With CBD Oil

Do you know that some companies have introduced CBD products for the kitchen? Yes, that that's true! There are multiple benefits of using CBD oil while cooking. Following are some of the benefits which make the trend going on,

  • When you cook with CBD oil, you can control the dosage.

Disadvantages of cooking with CBD oil

  • You can't heat CBD oil for your cooking as direct heat is bad for CBD. If you heat CBD oil, it will drain out all the benefits.
  • When you intake CBD oil through your foods and drinks, the onset effect of the CBD gets delayed as it will come through the digestive system.

How to use CBD oil in cooking?

As we discussed, CBD oil goes well while infused with delicious meals. You can add a few drops to your drinks, delicious dishes and enjoy the benefits. Following are the ways you can include CBD oils in your cooking,

CBD oil in drinks:

Smoothies are best when it comes to enjoying CBD oils through drinks. A smoothie comes with a strong flavour that eliminates the raw taste of CBD oil and allows you to enjoy the yummy flavour. Apart from smoothies, you can add a few drops of CBD oil to the hot cup of tea and coffee as well.

CBD oil in hot dishes:

If you want to use CBD oil in your hot dishes, do not go for deep frying. Instead, sprinkle a few drops on top after you finish cooking. Another excellent way to use CBD oil in hot dishes is baking. Make sure that you are not going above 170°C/338°F.

CBD oil in cold dishes:

The best way to use CBD oil in cold dishes is to add it to the salads. Keep bread or lettuce at the end so that no oil remains on the plate.

How to measure the right dose of CBD oil for your meal?

When it comes to cooking, you can't overdose on CBD oil. Overdosing on CBD oils in foods and drinks can reflect mild side effects, such as diarrhoea, nausea, headache, dry mouth, fatigue, etc.

Hence, unless you are an expert in CBD cooking, it will be best to follow your usual CBD oil intake dosage. If you are a novice, start cooking with a minimal dose, add 3-4 drops of CBD oil in cooking or sprinkle the same amount on top of it.

Picking the right CBD supplements

All the CBD oil available in the market neither suits everyone nor is created equally. It will help if you are always careful while picking the suitable CBD oil for your health. Hence, using the best quality oil is highly recommended.
