Understanding CBD

Since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill legalizing CBD at the federal level, CBD has formed the headlines. With such growing popularity, it is critical to understand CBD. What is CBD, and why do many relate to it? According to Bauer et al. (2020) and Massi et al. (2006), CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical compound in hemp and cannabis plants. Such compounds are collectively called cannabinoids, and CBD is one. Of the 140+ cannabinoids, CBD stands out for its non-psychoactive properties. Unlike THC, another cannabinoid, which is psychoactive and intoxicating Schlienz et al. (2018), CBD does not have the 'high' effect. Besides, Watt and Karl (2017) stated that CBD is therapeutic, and the cannabinoid seems to gain more popularity for the claimed therapy.

CBD Edibles

There are many ways to explore the claimed benefits of CBD. You can administer it topically or sublingually, ingest, or vape it. Ingesting CBD means taking CBD edibles like savory foods, drinks, beverages, and desserts. CBD desserts like cookies, bread, and brownies are among the most sought and bought CBD products. Besides, you can easily find them in the shops and food stores, or prepare them at home.

  • 2 cups of all-purpose baking flour
  • ½ a cup of canola/ vegetable or MCT coconut oil to boost the bioavailability of CBD and fasten the results
  • 5 ml of CBD baking oil
  • 2 tablespoons of dairy milk, although you can also do almond milk if you want dairy-free options
  • ¼ tablespoon of table salt
  • 10 mg of baking powder to allow the dough to rise
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract to enhance the flavor


With the ingredients and equipment above set, follow the procedure below to prepare banana chocolate chip bread with CBD;

  2. Put the MCT oil (or any oil of your choice), sugar, and egg in one bowl and mix evenly
  3. Put the baking powder, CBD baking oil, and granulated sugar in another bowl and mix consistently for homogeneity. You can add a little at a time instead of putting the three ingredients all at once and avoid overbeating the eggs
  4. Add the mashed banana, milk, and vanilla extract to the mixture above and mix continuously for 2- 3 minutes
  5. To make the bread presentable, add a few chocolate chips on top of the dough and press them inside gently to stop them from falling off
  6. Grease your bread pan with oil, pour the dough into it, and smoothen the top to allow even baking when the time is right

Caution: Do Not Overbeat the Eggs

The eggs are a critical part of the banana chocolate chip recipe. They add color to it, and since they have natural emulsifiers, they prevent staling. When mixing the eggs with other ingredients, beat or whip for 2- 3 minutes. Overbeating the eggs may ruin the quality of the bread, so be careful.


Banana chocolate chip with CBD is one of the best recipes to prepare. It takes about 70 minutes to prepare the dough and cook the bread, and you are assured of enjoying the therapeutic CBD without feeling its taste and earthiness.
