How do you Infuse CBD with your Smoothies?

There are two ways to infuse your post-workout recovery smoothies with CBD.

  1. 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 and Food

From anti-inflammatory properties to stress reduction, researchers are optimistic about the potential benefits of CBD. A list of potential benefits that continues to grow. With hemp legal in all fifty states, the flood gates for research are open and the results are trending in a positive direction. We still don’t know as much as we should about CBD because of the old laws that prevented new research from being done. CBD works with your body naturally, triggering the production of endocannabinoids to nourish the endocannabinoid system. This natural process is one helps promote homeostasis and as a result overall well-being.  Cooking with CBD is a phenomenal way to supplement your favorite cannabinoid. Cooking with CBD isn’t only fun, it allows you complete control over the dose and the ingredients used in each recipe. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be finding an excuse to infuse all your favorite recipes with CBD. CBD infused pasta sauce is just one of many great ways to use CBD on food. CBD BBQ sauces and CBD infused smoothies are both great ways to cook with CBD as well.
