We recommend using Planet Botanic Luxury CBD Oil , CBD Oils will need to be blended with some kind of carrier that contains fat before its used for cooking. This could be butter, coconut oil, full fat coconut milk etc. This makes sure that the oil is distributed evenly throughout the entire dish and increases bioavailability of the CBD.
Temperature. Temperature is especially important to keep in mind when cooking with CBD oil. At high temperatures, the active compounds in CBD oil burn off. This will result in losing CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids which are found in full spectrum CBD Oil.
When cooking try not to exceed 165 degrees C or 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Higher temperatures will cause the active compounds in CBD oil to deteriorate. Overheating CBD oil can also result in a somewhat bitter taste. Not What you’re looking for when it comes to cooking
