Benefits of Cooking With CBD Oil
- It’s convenient
Adding CBD oil to your favourite recipes is an easy way to get your dose of CBD and enjoy the benefits of your CBD through your regular meals.

However, before you get cooking, there are a few things you should know:
- Be Wary Of The Heat
Heat has the potential to make CBD less effective. Overheating your CBD oil can burn off its positive effects. While the temperature is often argued, 320 degrees fahrenheit is best, but never go above 350 degrees fahrenheit. If you are cooking over 320 degrees, consider adding the CBD after you are done heating food.
- Did you know that CBD is fat-soluble?
What this means is, when you consume your CBD with healthy fats, your body will absorb the CBD better. Foods like avocado, coconut oil, olive oil, etc. are great ingredients to include when cooking with CBD oil.
- Be considerate of how much you use
A small amount of CBD oil can go a long, so always consider your regular dose when you cook with it.
