CBD in food: the best combinations
Why is cooking with CBD a trend?
When we talk about CBD, it is its benefits that are often highlighted. But did you know that it can be consumed with food? CBD in food allows many things. First of all, it does not undergo any combustion and therefore does not have any harmful effects on the respiratory tract. Secondly - and this is thought to be the best way to consume it - this method is perfect for people who find it difficult to vaporise or taste CBD flower or CBD oil under the tongue.
This trend originated in the US and has been democratised thanks to edibles, the cannabis-based food. It has gradually found its way into European culture as consumption laws have become more flexible.
The nutrients that CBD brings in your food
In addition to the various benefits that CBD and the terpenes present in the hemp plant can bring you, CBD (oil) contains many nutrients and minerals:
Vitamin B1: thiamine
Vitamin B2: riboflavin
Vitamin B3: niacin
Vitamin B6: pyridoxine
Vitamin B9: folate
In addition to its many vitamins, CBD is rich in essential fatty acids such as omega 3 and omega 6 which helps maintain the immune system, making this plant very interesting. But that's not all, hemp seeds are full of good proteins, almost 30%, which is not negligible.

A few tips on CBD in food : avoid mistakes
It is true that it is not possible to overdose on CBD, however we advise you not to abuse it because, like any other food, consuming too much per day is not recommended.
Also, do not place CBD oil on a direct heat source! This could change the composition of the product. Wait until your dish has finished cooking before adding CBD oil, for example.
Finally, if you consume a CBD-based dish and alcohol at the same time, we advise you not to drive, as the effects will be more intoxicating and felt than usual.
CBD can be consumed in many different ways, thousands of recipes exist depending on your taste, but don't overdo it as studies have shown that a human cannot tolerate too much CBD in the body, per day.
