Did you know that roughly 14% of Americans use CBD products?
Most of the people that take CBD often do so in the form of a specialist oil. However, if you don’t like the idea of consuming oil, you might want to consider making some CBD edibles.
Here’s a quick look at how you can make some edibles that contain CBD. If you use these tips, you’ll be able to benefit from CBD, without having to drink a mouthful of oil.
1. Finding Good CBD Oil
The first thing you need to focus on is finding good CBD oil. After all, if you don’t do this, it’ll be difficult to make edibles that actually do you any good.
Luckily, there are many good brands to choose from, and most of them have been around for a while.
This is a great thing because it means each brand has plenty of reviews. Thus, if you just rely on these reviews, you should be able to avoid lackluster products.
If you’re new to CBD oil, you might not know which strength you should go for.
If that’s the case, think about selecting something that’s ‘mid-range.’ If you select something too weak, you might not experience the benefits of CBD. Yet, if you go too high, it might be too much to deal with as a beginner.
2. Making the Edibles
Once you’ve found a good CBD oil, you then need to focus on making the edibles.
It’s worth noting that edibles simply refers to making something that contains CBD oil. Following this, if you have any recipes you enjoy, you can just try adding some CBD oil to them.
If you want to add CBD oil to a ‘sweet’ product, you might want to bake some cookies. Again, it’s worth mentioning that you don’t need a special recipe here, as a standard cookie recipe will do.
When you’re making an edible, you might run into some confusion when trying to calculate the dose.
If you’re making something you’re going to eat in one sitting, you might want to use your standard dose.
But, if you’re making something you’re going to consume in many sittings, such as cookies, you’ll need to adopt a different approach.
In this instance, you’ll need to add enough CBD to the base mix, so that you get a standard dose, each time you eat a cookie.

Making edibles is going to be a bit of a trial and error process, as you will likely get things wrong the first time around.
If that happens, there’s no need to worry, as you will just need to adjust your recipe so that you do a better job next time. If you repeat this process enough, you will eventually end up with a recipe that you can rely on.
