Cooking with CBD a few things to note before you get started

Cooking with CBD is a good way to enjoy its benefits and branch out into various forms of application. Before you get started there are a few things to know.

CBD is fat soluble. It blends with oils and fats. Keep this in mind when you prep. Next is it’s not water-soluble. Oil and water don’t mix. you can sprinkle isolates on a salad or add it to juice but because it won’t combine you run the risk of wasting it. The most common and accurate way to use it is to infuse nonflavored CBD oil into other oil-based forms, butter, coconut, vegetable, olive oils are a good place to start. Use refined oil at first, these are more neutral in flavor and work best with baking or sauces.

Most CBD oil products are hemp oil based which in itself has a unique flavor at best. As you get more familiar with the tastes and flavors you can try unrefined CBD oils, and blend various spices and herbs, mint, oregano, clove, garlic orange peel.  A  limitless palette playing with the flavor of the oil itself.

CBD evaporates at around 320* degrees Fahrenheit, so a good rule of thumb is to stay around 200 degrees and just go-slow. Don’t add CBD oils to direct heat it will make the taste very thick and bitter, blend slowly and STIR often. Stay with low heat. This also gives you the option of adding alcohol like rum, vodka, and whiskey and maintain their flavors as well.

Good advice is to start with small doses and add more to get the flavor and effect you like. Remember CBD doesn’t have a taste but hemp oil does and most all companies add flavors to mask it. The flavors are endless, some good, some awful, but all are very concentrated. Something to note when you are pairing flavors.


When preparing isolates note of the amount of CBD and strength. For  example, 1 gram of isolate contains 1000 mg of CBD. Mixed with 2 ounces of oil, every 1 ml will contain 16 mg of CBD. This is a sliding scale. Take into consideration the number of people being served or the number of edibles being made. Most glass eye droppers hold at least 1 ml.

Slowly heat the oil (remember low heat) then add the isolate and stir. After about 5 to 10 minutes it will be infused and will be a thin clean oil. Now it is ready to use or store. If storing, place it in a cool dry place, or store in the refrigerator with a tight-fitting lid. I like to use a dark glass jar it makes it easy to reheat and stops the CBD /THC from receiving direct light, which breaks down all cannabis over time.

Cooking with CBD is a great way to break up your supplemental intake, and a good way to get around the taste and feeling of thick oils on your teeth & taste buds. Give it a try you might be pleasantly surprised.

  1. Fantastic info about CBD oil. I have seen the adverts on billboards, but nothing as in-depth as your article.

    I didn’t know that CBD oil can help with seizures and also am just getting to know I can cook with CBD oil.I’ ll remember that bit of information if I run into anyone with that particular problem. I have been thinking about trying it for my osteoarthritis pain and to help me sleep. I think the oiliness will bother me, so maybe the capsules would be a better choice.

    1. Thanks for the interest in CBD. Cooking with it is a great way to consume it   without having to deal with the thick oil and taste, it will for sure help you sleep better if you add it to your dinner, for your pain you might want to try a topical lotion   applied to the spot. If the flavors are a breaking point try CBD isolate, tasteless and flavorless powder or crystal form 99.99%pure  CBD ISOLATE  , if you have questions or concerns let me know i would be glad to help T.C

  2. Can it be an alternative to animal fat? Because we all want to eat clean food, the next step is to stop consuming animal fat and so far the consistency of vegetable oil can not really help in pastry, the consistency and taste of animal fat is still preferred. Now can we use CBD instead?

    1. Yes ,people get accustom to certain textures and flavors although animal fats a lard are a staple CBD will infuse in any oil ,for baking infuse it in the butter or vegetable or coconut  oil, for vegan use isolates or crystals pure 99.99% CBD, add to the dough or sprinkle on top of the finished product, you will not be disappointed. thanks for the response T.C
