How do you Infuse CBD with your Smoothies?
There are two ways to infuse your post-workout recovery smoothies with CBD.
- CBD Isolate. Many people wonder how to use CBD isolate. Infusing food and drinks is one fun way to use CBD isolate. Pure CBD isolate is 99% pure CBD and is perfect for making your own CBD products. To make a CBD infused fruit smoothie with CBD isolate you’ll have to infuse it with a carrier oil. We recommend using unrefined coconut MCT oil for CBD infused smoothies.

- CBD oil. Using CBD oil is super easy! Most CBD oil tinctures on the market utilize coconut MCT oil as a base and are ready to mix with just about any food or drink. Simply drop the desired amount of CBD oil in with your smoothie ingredients and blend well.
This whole process should take 10-20 minutes (20 if you’re using CBD isolate powder). If you enjoy this recipe please share your experience with us on social media @bloomhemp

Tips for Cooking with CBD
Cooking with CBD is easier than you’d expect – and a lot of fun too! If you don’t have time to cook with CBD isolate we recommend using your favorite CBD oil tincture to infuse your meals with CBD. Hemp tinctures that use MCT oil as a base are ready-made to infuse with just about any recipe. MCT oil is relatively tasteless and acts as the perfect carrier oil for infusing CBD with most foods and drinks.
Simply use the dropper that comes with your tincture to infuse the desired amount of CBD with your recipe as instructed. If you’re using a CBD oil tincture for this CBD infused smoothie recipe, simply drop the desired amount of CBD into the blender with the rest of the ingredients. Looking to save money while cooking with CBD? CBD isolate is affordable and versatile making it the perfect starting point for any health-oriented recipe. To infuse CBD isolate with food and drinks you’ll first need to infuse it with a carrier oil. Carrier oils help the body to better absorb natural supplements and essential oils. All of Bloom Hemp’s CBD oil tinctures are formulated using unrefined coconut MCT oil. Enjoy all of the benefits of coconut oil combined with ready to infuse CBD. Each of our tinctures makes cooking with CBD quick and enjoyable. To infuse pure CBD isolate powder with a carrier oil we’ll be using the double boiling method. The double boiling method is a simple cooking technique utilized to apply controlled heat to ingredients that are heat-sensitive. When cooking with CBD it is important to choose the right carrier oil. We recommend using either unrefined coconut MCT oil or avocado oil. We recommend these oils because they promote better CBD bioavailability and are packed with benefits of their own.
How to Use CBD Isolate
Pure CBD isolate powder is the main source of CBD in most CBD infused products. From gummy bears to salves, CBD isolate is the base of it all. This is why most brands in the hemp industry refuse to sell CBD isolate – you could be cutting them out of the equation. At Bloom, we believe in putting the power in the people’s hands. That means giving you access to raw materials such as pure CBD isolate and teaching you how to use them. We continue to expand our list of CBD infused recipes and are always working to refine our guides on how to use CBD. Using the double boiling method to infuse CBD isolate with a carrier oil makes your CBD ready to infuse with just about anything you can think of. Tired of spending the extra money on CBD infused topicals? Mix pure CBD isolate in with your favorite lotions and skin-care products. From food and drinks to your choice of smokables CBD isolate infuses seamlessly with just about any recipe.

Why This CBD Infused Smoothie Recipe is the Best
While more research is still needed, preliminary studies show promising results. Studies continue to link CBD to benefiting over 50 different conditions. The main source of the healing appears to be CBD’s impact on inflammation. Multiple studies show CBD to have a positive effect on inflammation, possibly all the way down to the DNA level. Inflammation is the root cause of most ailments we face today. From stress to disease, inflammation is at the heart of it all. If CBD can help us naturally fight inflammation, this supplement should definitely be taken on a regular basis. The only issue – despite knowing better – most of us hate taking vitamins and supplements. The process of taking natural supplements is typically less than ideal. That is what is so great about CBD infused smoothies. CBD infused smoothies provide a delicious, healthy way to enjoy most natural supplements, including CBD.
