What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many cannabinoids found in cannabis. It’s non-intoxicating, meaning it won’t make you feel high like THC will. CBD has also been found to have a wide range of health advantages, including the ability to reduce anxiety and pain while increasing sleep quality.
How to Make Homemade CBD Edibles
You’ll first need to decide on CBD edible recipe you’d like to make and then decide on the CBD product you’ll use to make your edible. You can make edibles from the flower itself or from CBD oil. Using oil will be the most potent option, but you can also use a decarboxylated flower.
This is cannabis that’s been heated to activate the THC and CBD. You can learn how to do this yourself or you can buy it pre-decarboxylated from a dispensary.
There are many recipes available online for all kinds of different edibles. You can make gummies, cakes, brownies, cookies, or even hard candies. And if sweets aren’t for you, then you can enjoy CBD in savory dishes like CBD-infused salad dressing, pasta, or mac and cheese.
Once you’ve chosen your recipe, the process of making edibles is pretty similar to cooking anything else. The only difference is that you’ll need to be careful to not overheat your CBD ingredients as this will cause it to lose its potency.
Start a CDB Side Business
Making and selling your own CBD edibles is a great way to make some extra money. With the popularity of CBD on the rise, there’s a growing demand for CBD products. And what better way to sell CBD edibles than by making them yourself? You can start small by selling them to friends and family or you can set up a website and sell them online.
One thing you’ll need to do is secure a reliable source of wholesale CBD products to keep your business going. Making sure that your dosage is always on point is easy when you use a compliant distillate or isolate instead of trying to use the flower for your recipes.
