CBD and its seemingly magical effects are sweeping the nation. It can be difficult to figure out what is true about CBD and what isn’t, using it in a professional kitchen or restaurant.
CBD is also known as cannabidiol. It is a cannabinoid derived from hemp that is also often found in marijuana. Because of this, it gets a bit of a bad reputation, but CBD is totally legal and safe to use for most people.
CBD works as a mild sedative in most people, which helps them to deal with all sorts of things by reducing inflammation and anxiety. It can also help to lower people’s blood pressure. Its varied effects are the reason that many people find it so helpful.
CBD acts much the same no matter how it’s used. Food is not one of its most common transmission methods, simply because of the added expense, but it’s not uncommon either. It’s less fun cousin, marijuana, winds up in food all the time, so why shouldn’t CBD?
Realistically, CBD can be included in just about any food. Some foods are more useful as a CBD transmission method than others. Something solid that a person will eat all of would work better than something like a soup, which often leaves a lot left behind in the bowl.
There’s a reason that marijuana brownies are so popular in popular media. Small baked goods make perfect vectors for CBD because they are intended to be eaten by one person and all in one sitting. You can do this with larger baked goods like cakes but it gets a little more complicated to know exactly how much CBD someone would get from each piece. It’s up to you how fancy you want to get with these things.
Drinks are another great way to get CBD to the people that want it. They’re easily transportable, they are easy to hide the flavor of CBD in, and they’re easy to customize. It would be simple to add a shot of CBD into someone’s coffee or tea and keep it out of the drinks of those who do not want them.
Just like with any other ingredient you source, you want to make sure that the CBD that you get is high quality and is labeled properly. Unfortunately, the FDA doesn’t regulate CBD at this point, so you will need to do some research. Every CBD producer should have a certificate of analysis for their products.
