CBD edibles are for sure the tastiest way to get your daily dose of cannabinoids. Adding CBD to your breakfast can also be one of the easiest ways to bring it into your wellness routine.
Adding CBD oil to your diet has fast become one of the latest wellness trends. CBD oil packs a punch when it comes to health benefits. It’s full of vitamins and minerals, as well as having the ability to give us feelings of relaxation and calm.
CBD is also a welcome addition to the lives of those with chronic pain as a result of conditions like fibromyalgia, MS and more, thanks to its pain-relieving properties. For this reason, adding CBD oil to your breakfast dishes is a great idea for getting through your day with added ease.
If you’re looking to add a CBD health kick to your meals, it’s surprisingly easy to incorporate it into your diet. We’ve written up some of our favorite breakfast food and drink recipes to give your kitchen an introduction to the world of CBD in food.
We’ve written before about the many health benefits of adding CBD to your morning coffee. Not only will it take the edge off the coffee buzz, but research shows it can also help to boost your energy levels. Excellent news for difficult mornings! Our recipe for CBD coffee is as follows:
1-2 teaspoons of your favorite coffee
1 cup of milk
Sugar to taste
Vanilla extract (optional if you want a vanilla coffee)
1. Over a low heat, combine the milk and CBD oil. Because everyone uses different strengths and dosages, we suggest adding the dosage that suits you. Usually it’s between 5-10 drops.
2. Add in the sugar to your preferred taste and mix well. Heat until the mixture is warm.
3. If you want to make a vanilla coffee, now is the time to add a few drops of vanilla extract.
4. Put the coffee grounds into your mug. Pour the milky CBD mixture on top. Enjoy!
For an extra luxe morning coffee, whisk the milk mixture using a milk foamer or small hand whisk to create a CBD cappuccino at home.
