Chocolate cake with CBD


Have you tried chocolate cake that incorporates CBD? How do you bake a chocolate cake with CBD? This article highlights examples of recipes that you can use to incorporate CBD while enjoying its soothing effects.

Before knowing how CBD can be used in cake making, you need to know the different ways of consuming CBD. CBD in full is cannabidiol, a compound that occurs naturally and is extracted from the hemp of the cannabis plant. It is the second most abundant in existence after THC. THC refers to Tetrahydro cannabidiol, which causes a psychoactive effect and makes you feel high.

CBD Overview

Überall, (2020) explained that CBD is known for its health benefits like anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, pain-relieving, and stress relieving. It is often consumed in various ways, like smoking vape pens, topicals applied on the skin, and sublingual ones placed under the tongue. Allan et al. (2018) explained that CBD could be incorporated into sweeteners like gummies and baked with cakes or cookies. Most people prefer to mix CBD into cakes using different recipes.

Why Take CBD Through Food?

Lachenmeier et al. (2019) explained that CBD in food takes longer for the effects to be felt as the food must pass through the digestive system before being absorbed into the bloodstream. The effects take longer to manifest but last longer in the body, an effect that suits people suffering from chronic pain and seeking relief that lasts longer in the body. Martello et al. (2019) explained that individuals should consider mixing CBD into their diet if they want long-lasting pain relief. The effects of CBD are increased when you eat it in a fatty meal, and cake being fatty enables you to enjoy the CBD in full perspective.

Positive Effects Of CBD

According to Shover & Humphreys (2020), CBD helps reduce anxiety and stress and soothe chronic pain in the bone, joints, nerves, or muscles. It also helps fight sleep disorders and reduce symptoms of diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, diabetes, and depression.
