You can try it out if you are considering using CBD in one of your recipes.

Budino, sweet custard Italian dish, is a sweet dish used as a dessert. Coffee and dark chocolate flavors can be used to enhance the taste of butterscotch. It is a hard candy that is made by boiling butter and brown sugar. You can also use corn syrup in water. The first known recipes date back to the mid-19th century Yorkshire where molasses was used in place of the brown sugar. The recipe has gained variations including the incorporation of CBD oil.

CBD Overview And Incorporation

Dell & Stein (2021) explained that CBD incorporation into recipes is gaining popularity rapidly as it helps in relieving the pain of terminal illnesses. Some use it for enjoyment. CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, which is a component that is extracted from the hemp of cannabis. CBD does not cause feelings of ‘high’ as compared to THC. Cassano et al. (2020) explained that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most abundant naturally occurring component and it leads to psychoactive effects when consumed. CBD is found in three forms, which are CBD Isolate, full-spectrum CBD, and broad-spectrum CBD. Liu (2019) explained that it is consumed in various ways like vaping, use of CBD sublingual, CBD topicals, vaporizers, capsules, and pills. The mode of taking depends on the effects you want to feel and for how long. Corrigan (2008) noted that some modes will see the CBD take longer to be absorbed into the bloodstream and so will their effects last longer to the user. Other modes absorb the CBD quickly and so the CBD is absorbed faster into the bloodstream. CBD is infused into baked items because the effects will be felt for a longer time as it takes longer to be absorbed into the bloodstream.
