Cooking and CBD - Recipes

Cannabis and cooking have a long relationship, with historical accounts of its use in dishes dating back centuries. Starting in the second half of the 20th century, there was a dramatic increase in the popularity of cannabis cuisine. CBD, one of the cannabinoids identified in cannabis, is one of the most abundant and many of its medicinal and therapeutic effects can be attributed to it. Scientists have discovered that CBD can mediate pain reception and mood, modulate the immune system, reduce inflammation, and more.

Tips - Preparation in the kitchen:

Planning and preparation are "half the battle" when it comes to the kitchen, and this is equally true of the CBD kitchen. Here are some essential tips that we hope you take and keep in mind as you begin your culinary journey.

First and foremost, your supply . To cook with CBD, you need to find a CBD supplier – we always recommend Cannalabis, an Online Store that delivers quickly to your home.

If you choose to work with hemp flower, it is important to obtain strains that are high in CBD. Furthermore, it is important to check the contents of a prescription, as CBD is fat-soluble.

CBD can be used in many different recipes, from sweet to savory. Adding CBD to your favorite recipes is an easy and delicious way to get the benefits of CBD.

When cooking with CBD, it's important to carefully measure the amount you use to ensure you get the desired effect. Remember that the effect of CBD can vary depending on the amount you use, so start with small doses and gradually increase until you reach your desired dose.

CBD Recipes:

1. CannabutterCBD - The perfect ingredient for every dish.


Preparation time: 45 minutes

Cooking time: 4 hours


  • 1 cup of ground cannabis flower (adjust according to preferred dose)
  • 1 cup unsalted organic butter
  • 1 cup of water (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 115°C. Place your cannabis flower on the baking sheet and spread it out evenly, breaking it into smaller pieces by hand if necessary. Cover with parchment.
  2. Place in the oven for 35-45 minutes, being careful to mix or simply shake the pan every 10 minutes, or as soon as it is baking. This is the decarboxylation process.
  3. Once done, grind the cannabis flower until medium or fine. How much of the plant you use for this depends on the individual, but note that when grinding, anything small enough to fit through your strainer will be part of your final product.
  4. Add your butter and water to a stock pot or saucepan to melt the butter. Boil it over low heat until it is completely melted.
  5. Once the butter has melted, add your coarsely ground cannabis and simmer. Its heat must be kept at a low temperature, above 75ºC and never higher than 93ºC. This mixture should simmer over low heat for 2 to 3 hours, during which time you should stir occasionally.
  6. This is a precarious stage – never let it boil or get too hot, as overcooking will destroy the CBD.
  7. Strain the butter using a funnel lined with cheesecloth, on top of the container of your choice. Once cooled, pour the butter into the funnel and allow it to strain freely.
  8. Once all your butter has strained, refrigerate the container. The butter should become solid again after about an hour. Excess water may form at the bottom of the jar, which can be dealt with by removing the solidified butter with a knife and draining the water out.

2. Guacamole


Preparation time: 20 minutes

Servings: 4


  • Medium size bowl
  • Fork, or pestle and mortar


  • 3 avocados
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • ½ medium onion, diced
  • 1 large garlic clove, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 mL of CBD oil
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into cubes
  • ½ jalapeno pepper, finely chopped


  1. Peel, dig, and mash the avocados in a bowl. We recommend using a fork, or a pestle and mortar, if you have them.
  2. Using a medium-sized bowl, mix the avocados and lime juice.
  3. Stir in CBD oil and salt.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  5. Cover your bowl or container with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for one hour or until cold.

3. Brownies with CBD

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 35 minutes

Total time: 50 minutes

Servings: 24


  • 1 cup CBD butter, melted
  • 3 cups of white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C. Lightly oil your baking dish, or line it with aluminum foil to prevent sticking later.
  2. In a large bowl, add melted CBD butter, sugar and vanilla. Beat in 4 eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one is added. Your final mixture should be mixed well.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, take your all-purpose flour, cocoa powder and salt and sift them together. Gradually stir this sifted mixture into the egg mixture until well blended.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips. Again, make sure it is mixed well.
  5. Spread your finished batter onto the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Place your baking dish in the oven and bake for 35 minutes.
  7. To check if your brownies are well cooked, simply insert a toothpick into the center of the brownies. If the toothpick comes out clean when removed, the brownies are ready.
  8. Remove the baking dish from the oven and place on a wire rack or other suitable place to cool. Once cool enough, divide it into the portion sizes of your choice.
  9. Enjoy!
