Choosing the Right CBD Tincture to Use in Food

By January 20, 2020 January 30th, 2020 No Comments

Is there really a right CBD tincture for a type of food or specific recipe? Not all CBD tinctures are created alike. There are different terpene blends, no terpenes, flavored and unflavored options. That being said, there is a way to pair the right CBD tincture with your food. We’ll help you determine which Canna Trading Tinctures are ideal for different flavor profiles. Adding CBD to food has been trending for a long time but not everyone gets the pairings right. This guide should make it easier for you.

Canna Trading Co. Organic Olive Oil Tincture

Our Canna Trading Co. Organic Olive Oil Tincture is perhaps our most versatile hemp CBD tincture. There are dozens of dishes that it can be used in. It can be used in DIY topicals and DIY CBD skincare products as well. For this tincture, there are just 2 ingredients – locally sourced organic olive oil and our broad spectrum hemp CBD extract. This allows the flavor of the organic olive oil to take center stage. It’s the right CBD tincture to use in food on multiple levels.

These are some of the ways that you can use the tincture in food:

  • Simple vinaigrettes
  • Herbed dipping oil
  • Finishing oil on top of homemade soups
  • Tossed in cooled pasta for a simple pasta salad
  • Cous cous salads
  • Cooled rice dishes
  • Blended with Dijon mustard, dill and garlic to top pork or chicken
  • Brushed on top of toasted bread after it’s been rubbed with fresh garlic
  • Drizzled over vegetables
  • Blended into compound butter
  • Brushed or drizzled onto seafood
  • Added to slaw recipes

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this versatile tincture. The olive oil does help protect the cannabinoids and terpenes in the hemp CBD extract, so if you are cooking on a low temperature, it is okay to add this to a warm dish toward the end of the cooking process. It really should only be in the heat for a few minutes to prevent the heat from killing off the cannabinoids.

Our Organic Olive Oil Tincture is available in both 750 mg and 1500 mg sizes. In a full dropper of the 750 mg bottle, there are roughly 30 25 mg servings. In the 1500 mg bottle, there are about 30 50 mg servings. Purchase the bottle that best suits your daily CBD intake needs.

Canna Trading Co. Alchemy Tincture

Alchemy has a complex flavor. It’s a little spicy. It’s a little peppery. It has some warm flavor to it. It’s also quite versatile. Alchemy Terpene Blast includes a blend of terpenes that are all plant-sourced. What can you do with Alchemy? This unique flavor is the right CBD tincture to use in food that has flavor and a little spice. For instance, it’s the perfect finish to cacio e pepe. Cacio e pepe is a classic Roman dish that is just pasta, pasta water, parmesan or pecorino cheese, salt and lots of fresh black pepper. It’s one of the simplest, yet most desired pasta dishes in existence.

Here are some other ways to use Alchemy in your favorite dishes:

  • Drizzled over arugula with a squeeze of lemon, salt and pepper
  • Drizzled on top of pizza
  • Mixed into mayo to make various aioli recipes
  • In pesto (cut your pepper for this application)
  • Combined with our Organic Olive Oil Tincture in your favorite salad dressing
  • On top of chili
  • Brushed on top of cornbread
  • Added to chowders and cream soups as a finishing oil
  • In herbed dipping oils
  • Brushed on top of freshly toasted artisan bread
  • Mixed with ketchup for use on burgers and fries
  • In pasta salads and whole grain bowls
  • It’s a great addition to an Asian slaw

Alchemy can be used on its own. You can also add it to shampoo or toothpaste. It’s another versatile hemp CBD tincture from Canna Trading Co. that you can really get creative with. In each dropper there is 25 mg of hemp CBD extract.

Canna Trading Co. Flavored Tinctures

Canna Trading Co. offers peppermint and vanilla flavored tinctures. Our flavorings are non-alcohol extracted. Our pure vanilla oil gives you just a hint of vanilla flavor. Our distilled peppermint extract won’t overwhelm your palate. It’s just the right balance of flavor to make one of these the right CBD tincture to use in food for special occasions, nightcaps and desserts.

These tinctures are both available in 750 mg and 1500 mg bottles.

Both of these tinctures are great options to add to homemade chocolate sauces and candy shells. Both can be added to a cooled simple syrup to brush over cakes, cookies and brownies. You can also add either one to cooled pastry cream to pipe into cream puffs, eclairs, cupcakes and cake.

If you enjoy an evening cup of coffee or tea, add a dose to your cup. Make it a little more indulgent by making some fresh whipped cream and adding in the tincture with additional natural peppermint and/or vanilla flavors. To maintain the integrity of the non-alcohol extracted flavors of these tinctures, we suggest using vanilla bean or fresh peppermint rather than extracts.

Canna Trading Co. Target Tinctures

The trio of Canna Trading Co. Target Tinctures each has a unique flavor from the terpene combinations used in them. Our target tinctures are our Anxiety Calming Tincture, Inflammation Anti-inflammatory Tincture and Sleep Aid Tincture. Since our Sleep Aid Tincture is designed to be used in the evening, it’s a great addition to butter for popcorn, your cup of tea or even drizzled over warmed snack mix.

Each dropper of our target tinctures (which contain 400 mg of hemp CBD extract per bottle) contains 13.33 mg of CBD. Our hemp CBD extract is broad spectrum, so you’re getting more than just CBD.

When you’re attempting to determine the right CBD tincture to use in food for a specific purpose, the target tinctures are an ideal option. Each tincture is designed with purpose. Each has a unique terpene blend for better support of the symptoms associated with these conditions.

These tinctures can be used in virtually any dish we’ve mentioned and just about any dish you can imagine. If you’re just having a snack and need inflammation support, go ahead and drizzle a dropper over your fruit. If you’re a little extra tense or anxious, go ahead and add the Anxiety Calming Tincture to your yogurt, crackers or anything you plan to consume.

Closing Thoughts

When choosing the right CBD tincture to use in food, it doesn’t have to be a mystery. This guide will help you make the right pairings. Keep in mind though, although CBD tinctures are fast-acting, when you are adding them to food, you’ll want to follow the edibles protocol. What that means is, the tincture will need to be digested before it makes it to your bloodstream, so it will take roughly 45 minutes to an hour before any effects are felt. Enjoy cooking and pairing your favorite Canna Trading Co. hemp CBD tinctures with your meals!
