When it comes to baking with CBD, you’ve got options. It’s important to decide what type of CBD you’ll use when you’re learning how to make CBD cookies.
The easiest way to incorporate CBD into your baking recipes is to use a CBD oil tincture and mix it into the fat your recipe contains. We prefer to use a full or broad-spectrum CBD oil tincture, simply because we prefer CBD to contain all the other beneficial cannabinoids and compounds like terpenes and flavonoids that lend to the entourage effect.
Another option is using CBD isolate when baking with CBD. While CBD isolate is 99.9% pure CBD and doesn’t contain other beneficial cannabis compounds, this fine powder does incorporate seamlessly with whatever fat you’re using to create your cookies.
As we said, we prefer a CBD oil tincture when baking. That being said, keep in mind that the cookies will take on whatever flavor your CBD oil tincture contains.
If you decide on an unflavored tincture, your cookies will contain the strong, earthy flavor of natural hemp. This taste actually pairs amazingly when making CBD cookies that contain chocolate, but not everyone prefers the natural taste of hemp.
As you’re probably aware, CBD oil tinctures come in a variety of different flavors. You might choose to use a mint-flavored CBD oil for a light minty taste. Chocolate and orange pair lovely, which it could make an orange-flavored CBD oil another option if you choose to make cookies containing semi-sweet or dark chocolate. Vanilla-flavored CBD oil tincture is another idea when you make CBD cookies, especially if you’re looking for a rich, smooth, creamy taste.
