Looking to spice up your self-care routine over the holidays? Here’s an idea! CBD Eggnog! Put your feet up by the fireplace and enjoy a cup of this before bed for deep sleep and festive dreams!
There are actually quite a few ways to spice your eggnog up with cannabis medicine. For those interested in making this recipe from scratch, try creating your own CBD oil or butter. It’s a pretty straightforward 3-6 hour process and all you need are an oven, tray, cheesecloth, some nice CBD-dominant flower and a carrier oil of your choice. For detailed directions, you can follow this recipe on Leafly, just substitute THC flower for CBD-dominant flower.
To make things as easy as possible, this CBD eggnog recipe calls for using pre-made CBD oil. You can use either a Full Spectrum CBD Oil or a Hemp CBD Oil – No THC. For those who don’t know the difference, full spectrum CBD Oil is made with a whole plant extract and contains a huge variety of natural compounds including cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. Hemp CBD oil – no THC, on the other hand, is made with CBD isolate. This is a product that has been refined from the whole plant extract into pure 99.9% CBD powder.
According to a groundbreaking study from Israel—highlighted over at Project CBD, whole plant CBD-rich cannabis extracts demonstrate superior therapeutic properties compared to single-molecule cannabidiol (CBD). There aren’t many other studies to back this up, but the anecdotal evidence does show that people prefer full spectrum cbd oil over a CBD-isolate-based oil. However, full spectrum CBD oil contains trace amounts of THC. If THC isn’t for you, use the Hemp CBD oil – no THC instead.
