Chances are you’ve tried your luck in the kitchen a few times in light of the COVID-19 shut-in. You may be dusting off those old cookbooks and putting your appliances to good use as the local restaurant scene seem to be dwindling down. Although you’re no iron chef, now is a great time to begin experimenting with immunity-boosting ingredients, such as CBD. In this blog post we will explore three benefits of cooking with CBD oil.
There Are Plenty Of Recipes
Luckily as CBD has become more widely-accepted, companies are adapting by producing websites and cookbooks that are solely dedicated to CBD recipes. Social media has also become a relevant tool in allowing culinary aficionados to share their CBD recipes to be used during quarantine. Whether it be a delicious summertime salad with a CBD infused vinaigrette, or CBD infused chocolate cherry scones for dessert, Pinterest has quite a few recipes that you can experiment with and taste test during your time at home.
There Are Many Health Benefits
CBD is known to be mood-enhancing and contains many benefits without the psychoactive side-effects that come with ingesting THC. By implementing just a small amount of CBD in your daily diet (there is only a need for microdosing with a potent product) you can help reduce nausea, inflammation and bloating that may come with digestive issues. Aside from the physical benefits, you will be enhancing your overall mental state with immediate anxiety relieving properties. By reducing stress and increasing your overall bodily functions, you will be less susceptible to getting sick due to an enhanced immune system.
Safe For Children
Being home with the kids 24/7 may be a struggle during quarantine. Since routines have been thrown off and school has been canceled, it may be tough getting them to wind down. With that being said, incorporating CBD into your children’s daily diet is both safe and effective in reducing anxiety, helping with sleep, and even helping with ADHD. Try giving your child a CBD snack as an alternative to Benadryl or any other sleep aid before bed to help them stay asleep through the night. Infusing peanut butter with CBD and serving with apples for dipping is the perfect and nutritious way for kids to reap the benefits of CBD.
The Apothecary Store offers a variety of triple-lab tested oils and tinctures that are perfect for incorporating into your daily meals. Choose from their ultra-potent, full-spectrum hemp oil that contains 5,000mg of CBD, or their CBD isolate that contains 1,000mg of CBD. Both products will go a long way due to their potency, as each recipe will call for just a few drops.
