Cooking with CBD
The introduction of CBD into gastronomy is quite simple, as it can be done in almost any dish you may have in mind.
Due to the fat-soluble characteristic of CBD, it is recommended that it be added to another fat (oil, olive oil, butter, etc.), as this facilitates its integration in recipes.
The addition of this oil to other oils will help to elevate your dishes, both in terms of flavor and properties, and this use is highly acclaimed in salad dressings.
The amounts of CBD used can vary depending on the person and personal taste, and it is recommended that, if you have never cooked with this compound, start by using lower dosages, gradually increasing depending on how you feel after ingestion. When you feel that you have reached the ideal dosage, you can then maintain it.
It is also recommended that you avoid cooking CBD at temperatures above 185ºC, as this could result in loss of product properties and quality, as cannabinoids are very sensitive to heat and light.
