Cooking with CBD oils

CBD edibles in the UK

Many people don’t like the taste of some CBD products. It’s true that the deep earthy richness of some oils doesn’t exactly excite everyone’s palate.

Thankfully, there are lots of different tasty ways to use CBD Oil in your cooking and fire up that endocannabinoid system.

We’ve been watching the Netflix show Cooking on High where two professional chefs compete to make the best cannabis-based meal. They are judged by a panel of celebrity stoners who get completely baked (pun absolutely intended).

We couldn’t do that here in the UK where edibles must contain CBD only with no THC to give you a high. If you like cooking shows, Cooking on High is a cool twist on the conventional. You also get some really good information about cannabinoids and how they interact with the endocannabinoid system.

So here are five great ways to enjoy your CBD.

CBD pesto pasta with garlic bread

CBD oil and pesto are great together. The rich earthy flavour of CBD combines beautifully with the pine nuts and basil. All you need to do is boil the pasta in some salt and a dash of olive oil. Once the pasta is soft, drain it and mix in a couple of teaspoons of pesto. Serve with some basil leaves and grated cheese before drizzling good glug of extra virgin olive oil and generous helping of CBD Hemp Oil.

If you want garlic bread to go with it, slice some good freshly-baked bread. Make the slices quite thick. Place them under the grill and turn until both sides are brown then rub a clove of fresh garlic onto the bread before drizzling with olive oil and CBD Hemp Oil. Perfect ECS soul food!

 Thai chicken curry

CBD Thai chicken curry is a Friday favourite to celebrate the start of the weekend. You can find a great recipe for this on the BBC to follow. CBD edibles do not get any more amazing as this.

Make sure you choose organic, free-range chicken if you can. Once the curry is finished, allow it to cool slightly in the pan and stir in about a teaspoon of CBD MCT oil. It sends an already creamy and spicy curry up through the stratosphere. Not only will this meal get your endocannabinoid system fired up and ready to go, but this hearty meal is also healthy and nourishing. It is full of antioxidants and MCTs from the coconut to help boost your energy levels and keep you fighting fit. This is a perfect meal for after the gym or just a long day at work – pure happiness and stress relief on a plate.

CBD butter

This is a winner because it is so versatile and tasty. Cooking is all about the ingredients that you use, so why not supercharge one of the most used ingredients in cooking?

For this, you will need quality butter from grass-fed cows because it is a great source of MCTs and healthy fats that CBD loves to interact with. The fatty acids in grass fed cow butter help CBD bypass the inefficient digestive and anabolic systems. It means that not as much CBD is wasted in your body because MCTs are a more effective CBD delivery system.

To make this you simply need to slowly melt the butter in a pan and add your CBD product of choice. That might be some CBD paste – Flora Fusion’s Raw product –  because it is the least palatable (for some) of the CBD products we sell. Put about four servings of CBD paste in with the melted butter, keep the heat up and slowly stir until the paste is infused into the butter. Then pour into a bowl to cool. Once the butter is set, cover with cling film and pop in the fridge. Now you have a CBD edibles heavyweight. You can spread on your toast in the morning or add to your cooking or baking. CBD cookies or CBD all butter shortbread, anyone? 

CBD beer

Beer is an enjoyable way to consume some CBD, and you might argue it’s the perfect accompaniment to Thai chicken curry. There are two ways you can do this. You can buy a CBD infused beer or simply add some Flora Fusion Bio oil to your beer. It won’t taste so bad. If you like to brew your own beer you can start the process by infusing the hot water you use with CBD. This way, when the beer ferments the CBD becomes fully integrated. We’d suggest you only do this if you know about home brewing and can control how strong each beer will be.

CBD spinach, mushroom, and feta omelet

This is a perfect recipe for people on a ketonic diet. If you are, you can use our CBD MCT oil (which we call Pro) to supercharge your body. Beat a few eggs with some butter (CBD butter if you wish), and some salt and pepper. Put more butter in a hot frying pan making sure the butter covers the pan and pour in your eggs. Immediately after, add some sliced mushrooms, spinach and grated cheese. Cook until the eggs are set and fold your omelet over. Hey presto – a perfect, ketonic CBD edible classic!
