There are literally thousands upon thousands of brands of cooking oil that you can use for cooking your food. In recent years people have been trying to find healthy sources of oil to use for cooking because of the makeup that some oils have which causes them to change to unsafe compounds during the heating process. Healthier options for cooking oils have gone so far as to incorporate CBD into them for the benefit of the consumer, but you might be wondering how to cook with CBD oil. The following article will share a few tips on cooking with CBD oil.
If this is your first time trying to cook with CBD oil, then it’s a good time for you to learn that it’s always a good idea to remain conservative when adding it into your food. If you don’t know how much to put in yet, then you can end up with a mess instead of tasty treats. This means a lot of wasted money because of the amount of ingredients. If you need to experiment, use smaller amount of ingredients and be ready to record what the last amount was so that you can know how you made that last snack so delicious.
Store It Well
CBD oil can do decently without being kept in the refrigerator, but you will still want to keep it out of sight, because light and other actors can weaken its potency. Not only that, but it could change the flavor of the oil, which might make you food taste strange.
It Is Temperature Sensitive
One of the most challenging things about CBD oil is that it is very sensitive to high temperatures. When the oil is warmed properly, it can make it more concentrated and effective, but anything beyond that could destroy the benefits of the oil. At temperatures higher than 350 degrees Fahrenheit, the CBD will break down. Another unfortunate side of this, is that the oil when heated at too high a temperature will begin to taste more bitter.
Stir It and Don’t Stop Stirring
When you’re working with CBD, you don’t want it to sit in one spot on the pan to allow it to be heated to heavily. Keeping it moving will help keep the temperature down, and make sure that the oil is distributed properly through your food so that you can get nice even cooking coverage.
