Don’t let the thought of making your own weed edibles scare you away. Any recipe can be turned into a THC or CBD edible if you have a potent infused oil on hand. Making your own CBD edibles is a fun challenge and you’ll be able to impress your friends at your next smoke sesh. These are just a few easy CBD edible recipes to get you started.

Can you make CBD edibles at home?

Of course! Some people choose to make their own CBD cannabutter from high-CBD, low-THC dry herb, but those who don’t feel confident in their DIY skills can use store bought CBD oil. A few drops of CBD oil can be quickly added to both sweet or savory recipes to elevate your dish. Anything from salad dressing and pasta sauce to cake batter or a tropical cocktail become even more special with a dose of CBD. For CBD edible recipes, choose a potent, high quality CBD oil with no added flavorings such as the Hemplucid Organic Broad Spectrum CBD Oil
