Cookies lovers will never say no to another chocolate, caramel, vanilla, or fruit-infused cookie. There are endless ingredients you can add to a cookie and even though they are not the healthiest food we can eat, CBD consumers enjoy CBD cookies as a discrete and fun way to take CBD.
What are CBD cookies?
A CBD cookie is a regular cookie—like the ones you find in a cookie store or make at home—with CBD oil added during its preparation. It will taste sweet as always, but with the benefits of this cannabinoid.
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a hemp-derived compound. It is known for helping relaxation, regulating sleep, avoiding nausea, and aiding with anti-inflammatory issues. Don’t confuse CBD with THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), though. Both are cannabinoids but have different effects. THC is the psychoactive compound you can find in the hemp and cannabis plants. Like the CBD oil needed to make cookies, hemp-derived CBD products are legally produced and sold in 46 states since 2018.
CBD oil is produced with different parts of the hemp plant: seeds, flowers, and leaves. Hemp seeds, for example, can be consumed or used to create a variety of food products, including hemp milk, hemp oil, hemp cheese, or, in this case, hemp cookies. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), hemp seeds are rich in micronutrients like magnesium, calcium, zinc, and iron. Adding seeds and CBD oil to your diet could be a great way to get vegan protein.
Will I Get High Eating CBD cookies?
A commonly asked question when taking CBD for the first time; CBD effects depend on each person, but it does not have any psychoactive compound, like THC, on it. The ‘high’ you get when taking THC is not what you feel when taking CBD.
Now, CBD has its own effects, but there are no conclusive studies on what CBD feels like. All we have are people’s experiences and may differ in individual characteristics such as the user’s weight, diet, or metabolism. Common feelings related to CBD consumption are relaxation, good sleep and wake cycle, and help relieve anxiety. The feeling will also depend on the type of product, specific doses, or the quantity and quality.
Ingesting CBD is one of the most common and discrete methods. You can take capsules, consume a drink or eat some food, like gummies.
Are CBD and Cannabis Cookies the Same?
Cannabis and CBD are not the same. The cannabis cookie may contain CBD oil extracted from marijuana, not from hemp, and may have a high amount of THC, more than 0.3%. These products will produce a ‘high’ and are only legal in those states where recreational marijuana is legal.
Baking CBD Cookies, What Do I Need?
Have a party coming up and want to bring something different? Here we’ll explain how to prepare CBD cookies and be the star of the party. First of all, ask your guest if anyone does not want to take CBD. Some people feel scared about the cannabinoid and hemp products. Don’t push them; prepare regular cookies without CBD, too. To those in doubt, explain to them what CBD is and how it works. Send them this article. It may be helpful.
Once your guests have been notified, it’s time to go to the shop. If you don’t know what CBD oil to choose for your cookies, don’t be afraid to ask your vendor. Also, make sure to look for a Certificate of Approval to verify if the producer went through all the transparency steps.
Remember CBD generally tastes ‘earthy,’ so it would be better to use an oil with flavor and sweet taste. PureKana Vanilla CBD oil is made with vanilla extract and derived from organic hemp plants grown in Kentucky. It could be a choice. Mile High Cure’s chocolate cake CBD oil, on its own, could be an option to increase chocolate taste in your recipes. This CBD oil is broad-spectrum, so it has no THC on it.
