Infusing CBD Isolate Into Your Diet
With the growing craze around CBD and it’s products. One of the most important things that get overlooked or confused is how to safely infuse CBD into your diet. For starters, it is not as simple as just taking some CBD oil, or drowning your favorite salad in it. There are much more calculated precautions to be wary of when trying to infuse CBD products. Read below for tips on how to safely and effectively infuse CBD into your diet!
Things you should know before starting:
CBD is not a one stop solution nor remedy.
Basically don’t expect to take a few drops of CBD and think it alone will change your diet. Start practicing a healthy diet in other ways like exercising, eating fruits, vegetables among other healthy things. CBD is much more effective when you are already practicing a healthy diet and CBD is used in concert with that. It is always recommended to consult with your doctor first to see if CBD use can be beneficial for you.
Experimenting with Dosage
CBD like many other supplements, have different effects on everyone. Therefore, what may be a good dosage or sweet spot for a friend may not be the case for you. Since that is the case, we suggest starting off with smaller doses and then working your way up to a dose you're comfortable with.
Find the Right Product
CBD is widely available from your local CBD store or boutique, to even some of your local grocery stores
There are several types of different CBD oil and reputable brands that sell it. Do your own research and read tons of reviews to see if it’s up to your standards.
Rules for Infusion
CBD does have a boiling point that you don't want to reach as it may lose effectiveness as a result. This temperature is seen most often over 350 degrees fahrenheit.
CBD pairs very well with butter, olive oil, MCT oil, coconut oil, emulsified fats (chocolate/mayo), nuts, avocados and some herbaceous spices.
Most research suggests not to use any more than 20mg of CBD, and recommend using Full Spectrum or CBD isolate products when cooking or infusing.
