Cooking with CBD oil and CBD recipes have become increasingly popular as the cannabinoid continues to gain popularity amongst both new consumers and existing consumers looking to try it in new and innovative ways. What is easier than adding some oil to your favourite recipes? For those looking to improve their health and wellness by eating a more balanced diet
What CBD Oil Should I Use?
As we have said countless times, CBD oil is no different than any other ingredient you are looking to consume, quality is paramount and this requires some research and investigation in to the ingredients and source of the CBD oil you are looking to cook with. We recommend first identifying what kind of CBD oil you are looking to consume and implement into your cooking.
The three main types of CBD oil are; full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and lastly CBD isolate. We recommend using full-spectrum CBD oil as it contains CBD as well as other cannabinoids and terpenes to provide an overall entourage effect that is not present in broad-spectrum and CBD isolate products. Broad-spectrum CBD is similar to full-spectrum as it does contain CBD with other terpenes and cannabinoids however the trace amounts of THC which add to the overall entourage effect are not present. CBD isolate does not contain any other cannabinoids, terpenes, or THC and can be a great alternative for athletes who play in regulated sports or who are subject to testing of any kind. At Elements of Green, we offer only the highest quality, lab tested CBD oils that have been thoroughly vetted by our experienced team. Our full line up of CBD oil products can be found here.
Beyond that, you want to make sure you are using a quality CBD oil from a reputable brand. With hundreds of CBD brands and manufacturers to choose from with more on the way it is crucial to shop brands you can trust. Particularly, CBD brands that have clearly defined ingredients, are readily available to answer questions and most importantly proudly display COA’s (Certificate of Analysis) or lab results. It is very important to make sure your CBD oil is free from harmful pesticides, heavy metals or other harmful substances. For those with dietary restrictions, you can also shop for CBD oils that are non-GMO, vegan, organic, and more.

So, what does this tell us? Well, it seems like the quickest way to ruin your CBD recipe is by directly heating your CBD oil so we suggest using it as part of a garnish, salad dressing or drizzle. One simple way to get the feel for dosing would be to implement your CBD oil into a variety of smoothie recipes which are quick, delicious and easy to make.
Similarly, Betty Gold from realsimple.com echoed some of these suggestions in her article titled “Curious About Cooking With CBD Oil? Read These 4 Tips First” by interviewing Erica Hara, executive chef and co-founder of CBD brand La Vida Verde, Erica stated:

What Are Our Favourite Recipes with CBD Oil?
As mentioned above, we believe smoothies are the best way to introduce CBD oil into your diet as they are simple to make, taste great and there are countless variations and flavours. The strong flavour profile of most smoothies can hide some of the more natural flavours in CBD oil.
A quick summary of the ingredients:
Besides smoothies and keeping in line with the tip to avoid directly heating your CBD oil, we recommend mixing your CBD oil into your favourite salad recipe, whether it is Greek, caesar, chop, or any other kind of salad. Keep in mind, there can be an earthy taste associated with CBD oil so it is best to consult the brand you are looking to purchase about the flavour profile in advance.
