To make a CBD-rich brownie or another CBD-rich edible, you must choose a CBD oil that works for you then infuse it into olive or coconut oil or butter or ghee (clarified butter). These infused oils or butters are the most common ways to cook with cannabis.
You will need to combine the CBD oil with the butter you choose and expose to low heat over a long period of time – this will help to avoid breakdown and/or vaporization of the CBD and other cannabinoids.
There are a few items to keep in mind when you are making your CBD infused foods.
The basic process of making your own oil/butter/fat is to gently heat the starting material (olive oil, coconut oil, etc), add the CBD oil and stir until well combined. Then store in a clean, sterilized container in a dark, cool place. Use as normal in your recipe of choice, keeping in mind your targeted per serving quantity of CBD.
Common CBD combinations are infused olive oils for salad dressings, infused butter for making baked goods or as a topping for veggies/toast, and coconut oil for a healthier alternative butter.
