09 May Crazy Foods and CBD
What are some of the crazy foods and CBD combinations you’ve seen? As CBD continues to gain popularity and its versatility becomes apparent, it’s becoming known that you can put CBD into just about anything. CBD-infused foods are everywhere. If you’re a medical cannabis patient, your local dispensary likely has CBD edibles available.
In some U.S. cities and states, it’s being clearly stated that CBD-infused food can’t be sold at restaurants or grocery stores. So – why not just make your own at home?
We always suggest that you look into the rules in your state. The FDA hasn’t decided what it’s going to do about CBD being an ingredient in food yet, but what they have said is that it can’t be in foods that will cross state lines. Does it make sense? Not really – CBD is not intoxicating and if it comes from hemp, it’s included in the provisions of the 2018 Farm Bill that legalized hemp.
Our Favorite Crazy Foods and CBD Concoctions
Some might not seem so crazy, but these are our crazy foods and CBD concoctions. Do you agree with these options or do you prefer a different type of CBD edible?
Crazy Foods and CBD – Croissants
If you’re visiting London, you can find CBD croissants at Glow Bar. The croissants are vegan, too. Each croissant has a price tag of £7, which converts to about $9.19 USD. Glow Bar obtains these flaky treats from Organic Livity. Organic Livity uses a GMP quality certified process and lab testing to ensure that every croissant contains the right dosage of CBD. All of the ingredients are GMO-free and certified organic.
Each croissant contains a 5 mg dose of CBD. You can find these buttery pastries at Glow Bar on Fridays and Saturdays.
Founder of Glow Bar, Sasha Sabapthay said, “We wanted to provide consumers with a non-alcoholic solution for overcoming social anxiety and raise awareness about hemp as a wellness supplement.”
Craving Donuts? Try this Crazy Food CBD Treat
CBD donuts do exist – at Glazed & Confused in Stapleton, Colorado. What you won’t find here is premade ingredients. Everything, all the way up to the glazes, is made fresh every day. Of course, there’s a regular menu available, but they also have seasonal options.
You can find the CBD-infused donut in the seasonal section. It changes, so make sure to check back every few months for the newest flavor.
We find this to be a novel, and maybe not so crazy foods and CBD combination that just makes sense.
CBD pizza is available at several pizza shops across the U.S. In Arizona, Spinelli’s Pizzeria in Tempe offers the addition of CBD to individual slices for $5 per slice or $10 on a whole pie. They also have some CBD-infused specialty cocktails to enjoy with your pizza.
At Canna Trading Co., we like to take things a step further. Let’s take that idea of CBD-infused pizza and make it a fun snack – CBD pizza rolls.
Loaded CBD Pizza Rolls
1 fresh whole wheat pizza crust
2 Tbsp. whole butter
1 droppers of Organic Olive Oil CBD Tincture
½ cup pizza sauce of your choice
½ tsp. crushed red pepper
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
3 Tbsp. freshly chopped Italian parsley
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 cup pepperoni diced from a pepperoni stick (you want cubes for this recipe)
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
Flour for dusting your rolling surface
Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees.
Dust your working surface with a little bench flour. Also dust your rolling pin. Roll your dough out into a thin rectangle – about ¼” thick. Cut the dough into rectangles about 1/5” wide by 2.5” long (you really don’t have to measure, you can make them whatever size you like, this size is a bite or two). Put ½ teaspoon of pizza sauce onto each rectangle making sure not to cover the edge.
Sprinkle a little mozzarella cheese and pepperoni into each rectangle. Add just a little bit of the fresh parsley (and feel free to add drier veggies here too) and fold. Pinch the edges closed tightly.
Melt the butter in the microwave. Add the CBD oil, salt herbs and spices. Stir and brush on top of each pizza roll. Sprinkle with the shredded parmesan and bake about 12 minutes or until the top and bottom are golden brown.
If you’d like, you can make more of the CBD butter sauce to dip the pizza rolls in after they’re done.
Yes, CBD water can be made. This might be one of the crazy foods and CBD combinations that is hard to figure out how it works. Oil and water don’t mix, so how do they put CBD into water? Ok, so water might not necessarily be an actual food, but your body needs it to survive.
CBD is processed in ultra-low temperatures with carbon dioxide. The carbon is removed and CBD isolate remains. After this process, CBD molecules are miniscule. This makes them friendlier with water. Of course, you can add your favorite flavorings to CBD water if the only option in your area is plain.
CBD water isn’t available everywhere. It’s not easy to make.
CBD Ice Cream
How do you put CBD oil into ice cream? Here’s what you might not know – CBD works very well with fat. Ice cream has a lot of fat from the cream. But, if you can’t find CBD ice cream locally, there are ways that you can take store-bought ice cream and infuse it yourself.
If you’re going to make your own creations at home, let the store-bought ice cream thaw a little bit so it’s easier to mix.
Try these DIY infusions at home:
- Soak crumbled cookies in a dropper of Vanilla or Peppermint CBD oil and mix it into your ice cream
- Make chocolate candy shell infused with CBD. You can find our recipe for CBD infused hard candy shell in our 6 Elevated Summertime Favorites Now, you can top your ice cream with this or let it soften a little and make ribbons of chocolate in it for a fun, crunchy texture
- CBD-infused krispie treats cut small and folded into ice cream
- Add a little CBD oil to your favorite fruit jam or jelly, little dollops throughout your bowl of ice cream is a refreshing treat
Get creative and take our suggestions to the next level!
