Types of CBD:

There are three principal groups of CBD products on the market which you can infuse in your foods –

  • Full Spectrum – It preserves all the cannabinoids in the product. They have trace amounts of THC(0.3%) alongside CBD.
  • Isolates – It refers to a single lab-extracted crystalline solid containing pure CBD only.
  • Broad Spectrum – It is basically a mix between Full spectrum & isolates.They are pure CBD with all cannabinoids present except THC. 

CBD & Food Facts :

  • CBD is fat-soluble. It is best when paired with fatty foods like peanut butter, avocados, CBD isolates paired with olive or coconut oil.
  • Do not heat CBD. CBD tends to lose its potency and starts to degrade with heat. You should add CBD as a final ingredient in your meal.
  • Make a single serving of CBD infused foods to maintain the right dose.
  • If you are the first-timer for CBD infused foods, try consuming it at night time. CBD can be sedative, and you don’t want to dose off in the middle of the day.
