Options include oral tinctures, topical products, vape pens, and even smoking raw hemp flowers. One of the most popular ways of taking CBD is through edible products.

If you’ve been curious about how you can craft your own CBD edibles, keep reading.
For the recipe, you’ll need:
- 2 TBSP unsalted butter
- ¼ Cup packed brown sugar,
- 1 large egg yolk
- ½ TBSP vanilla
- 20mg of a CBD oil or tincture.
- ⅓ Cup all-purpose flour
- ⅛ tsp baking soda
- ⅛ tsp salt
- 3 TBSP dark chocolate chips,
- 3 TBSP finely chopped Brazil nuts,
- 3 TBSP pumpkin seeds,
- 1 TBSP flaxseed
First, you’ll preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. You’ll then want to mix all the wet ingredients in a large bowl, incorporating the butter, sugar, egg yolk, vanilla, and CBD oil.
Then, mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt until they’re just barely combined with the wet ingredients.
Finally, mix in the chunkier ingredients like the chocolate chips, flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, and nuts.
Since the recipe makes four cookies, you’ll want to then divide the dough into four equal portions on a baking sheet. Bake the cookies for about 15 to 18 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Each cookie is approximately 300 calories and contains 6 grams of protein.
Hopefully, this article will help you to explore your CBD supplement options a bit more extensively, and perhaps try these delicious cookies out for yourself. On days where you need an extra pick-me-up, 20mg of CBD might be able to do the trick. Always make sure you’re using the appropriate dosage of CBD when making edibles, and that you’re using an oil or tincture that you’re already familiar with.
