Mastering the Art of CBD Infusion: Techniques and Tips

When it comes to cooking with broad spectrum CBD, mastering the art of infusion is key. Properly infusing CBD into your recipes helps ensure an even distribution of cannabinoids throughout each dish while preserving their potential therapeutic properties. There are several techniques you can employ to achieve optimal results.

First and foremost, avoid exposing CBD to excessive heat, as this can degrade its quality and effectiveness. To sidestep this issue, consider incorporating CBD into oil-based sauces or dressings that can be added to your dishes after they've been cooked. Alternatively, you can gently warm the CBD oil and mix it with other ingredients before adding them to your recipes. Don't add CBD to boiling liquids.

When determining the appropriate amount of CBD for your culinary creations, keep in mind that individual preferences and tolerances may vary. Start with a conservative serving size and adjust as needed based on your specific needs and desired effects. It's also a good idea to follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of your CBD products. 

Last but not least, remember the general rule of cooking with CBD: you can always add more CBD if needed, but you won't be able to remove it from your dish if you rush it and add too much.

  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced

Add the Arborio rice into the pan, stirring continuously until the edges of the grains are transparent, about 2 minutes.

Stir in the sliced mushrooms, and continue to sauté until they are slightly browned. Pour in the white wine, and continue stirring until the wine is fully absorbed. Add 1/2 cup of the warm broth to the rice, and stir until the broth is absorbed. Continue adding broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring continuously, until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is al dente, about 15 to 20 minutes.
