Cooking with CBD Oil

CBD oil, also known as hemp oil, is, undoubtedly, one of the most in-demand products on the hemp market.  Often used as a tincture, it provides us with a minimal, straightforward and user-friendly formula for getting in that perfect daily dose of cannabidiol, the nontoxic, nonintoxicating cannabinoid in hemp that can offer a host of valuable effects to body and mind.

While CBD oil is very effective as a tincture, it’s also a fantastic way to turn your favorite recipes into CBD-infused edibles.  Cooking with hemp oil is easier than cooking with raw hemp flower, and can be used in virtually any recipe.  Let’s help you get started.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD oil is a specific type of CBD-infused formula, consisting of hemp extract (naturally high in CBD) and a carrier oil like MCT oil, which is safe for ingestion.  Sometimes it includes flavoring agents as well.

Like we said, CBD oil is most commonly used as a tincture.  It comes in a dropper bottle, to make administration easy.  Typically, a full dropper of oil serves as a single dose.  When taken sublingually, its effects can “kick in” within about 30 minutes, lasting for about 4 hours.

However, using CBD oil for making recipes means that you’re not taking it as a tincture, but ingesting it.  Ingesting the cannabidiol compound means that the effects can take 2 hours before peaking, but can last for up to 8 hours.

Can You Buy CBD Infused Oil for Cooking?

We do want to specify that there is no such thing as “CBD cooking oil” or “CBD cooking products.”  The CBD oil that people use for cooking is the same oil they’d buy as a tincture, and you can choose the milligram strength and flavor option (or unflavored) based on what you desire.

Can You Cook with CBD Oil?

CBD oil, like all hemp-infused oils, can be added to any recipe, and generally tolerates cooking and baking very well.  The key is avoiding surpassing 350 degrees Fahrenheit, as this is the point where the CBD starts to break down and lose its effectiveness.  Thankfully, there are many recipes that don’t require heat beyond that point, so you’ll be able to get all of the benefits you’re seeking out from hemp, in edible form.

Hemp Oil for Cooking: How it Works

Kore Original – Cooking with CBD Oil – Video Summary

Cooking with CBD oil is different from cooking with raw hemp/CBD flower.  That’s because CBD oil contains CBD that’s already decarboxylated – aka activated through heat, to allow CBDA to convert into CBD.  When cooking or baking with raw flower, you need to decarboxylate the flower, then infuse it into butter or a cooking oil, and naturally, that takes a lot more work. 

How to Use Hemp Oil in Food

If you want to get started making homemade CBD edibles with hemp oil, you’ll want to first find a recipe.  CBD oil can be added to any recipe, like we said before, and as far as dosing is concerned, you’ll want to multiply your desired dose by the number of servings.  For instance, if you’re making a recipe that has 4 servings, and you like to take half a dropper of CBD oil, you’ll want to add 2 full droppers to the recipe.  That being said, let’s share some of our favorite CBD oil recipes to help get you started.
