Peanuts are a favorite snack of people around the world. It has certain health benefits, which you can find out more about at this link. But only if you eat it in moderation. Due to the higher presence of nitrates and not so few calories, the intake of this snack should be limited. You will admit that it can be very difficult, especially if you snack on peanuts along with beer while being out or watching a game.
A slightly healthier and more stomach-friendly variant of this snack is peanut butter. It can be eaten with a variety of foods, both sweet and savory. But it goes best with honey, chocolate, and jellies. Since this food is an ideal choice for breakfast, most people always have a jar of this yummy spread in their fridge.
However, attention should be paid to buying peanut butter, given the considerable number of artificial ingredients and flavor enhancers in it. If you want a healthier version of this spread, you can easily make it at home and thus be sure of its quality. And if you further enrich it with CBD, you will get fantastic food to bring you many health benefits.
Determine CBD Dosage
CBD oil is a hemp-based product that is very healthy, but not everyone likes its taste. That is why the manufacturers started making all kinds of edibles infused with cannabidiol. In licensed stores, you can find good CBD peanut butter from proven brands. Yet, if you prefer to know all the ingredients and their quantities, you can easily make this spread at home.
The first step is to determine the dose of CBD that will be sufficient per serving. The rule of thumb is to start with the lowest doses, whether using CBD as a supplement or as an adjunct to conventional therapy. Follow this rule, especially when you are adding cannabidiol to food.
Small doses of CBD can be quite helpful in treating a number of conditions, such as headaches, anxiety, and even pain. Very often, microdosing of this substance gives you the same healing effects as with higher doses but without activating the psychoactive effects of THC.
Buy Quality CBD
So, how do you make a peanut butter recipe that works for you? First of all, you need to make sure that your ingredients are ready. Do not skimp when it comes to the quality of CBD. Whether you buy oil, distillate, or hemp buds make sure you get those rich in cannabidiol and of proven origin (brand).
Tips on buying hemp buds read below:
For oils and extracts, check the dosage labels to see what percentage of CBD you need to serve. As for hemp buds, choose CBD-rich strains if you don’t want to think about possible intoxication from THC. These buds have to be pre-prepared before you put them in your homemade butter.
This process can also be called the ‘awakening’ of CBD molecules from raw materials. Although it sounds complicated, it’s actually nothing more than lightly baking hemp buds. You need a baking tray lined with wax paper. Spread the hemp buds on it so that everyone heats up equally in the oven. Cover it with aluminum foil to make baking even.
The oven should be preheated to approximately 100ºC. Insert the baking tray and leave it for an hour. Get it out of the oven and let the cannabis cool slightly. You can chop or grind decarbed buds, depending on what consistency you want. For homemade peanut butter, the best option is to grind them into powder.
Making Your Favorite Spread
If you have never made this treat before, you can still go to your local store and buy it. But for the real, full taste of peanut, you have to make butter at home. It won’t take you much time, and you will be thrilled with the taste.
Whenever you can, choose unsalted peanuts. You’ll need about 5 cups. Put them in a blender and add a pinch of salt and about two teaspoons of honey, browns sugar, or maple syrup. Grind all the ingredients so that there are no larger pieces of peanuts in the mixture.
The next step is to add ¼ cup of peanut oil. For a milder taste of your CBD peanut butter, replace it with the same amount of coconut oil. Turn on the blender for a few more minutes until the mixture gets a completely silky texture. Then add the powdered hemp buds and continue to mix. That can take another minute or a few, depending on whether you like your peanut butter crunchy or not. Put it in a jar and keep in a fridge.
You may be surprised at the different versions of recipes for this tasty treat. Some people prefer to use Pecans, and others like to add some other nuts for a bit different flavor. Some people add chocolate or dried fruits. How, you just have to find a combination that works for your palate.
You can make CBD-infused butter from almost all kinds of nuts. But if you’re a fan of peanut, this is a way to go. Of course, if you find that you don’t like it as much as you anticipated, you can always start over and modify the recipe or CBD amount to suit your tastes. But if you do enjoy it, you can easily make it whenever you’re in a mood for some healthy PBJs.
