What Is CBD, and What Makes It Popular?

This recipe is not for any custard tart; it features CBD as an additional ingredient. What is CBD? According to Massi et al. (2006) and Bauer et al. (2020), CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, mostly found in hemp and marijuana plants. Cannabinoids collectively refer to all the chemical compounds in cannabis plants, and more than 100 of them exist. Still, CBD remains the most studied cannabinoid because it is non-psychoactive and does not make one feel 'high.' THC is yet another cannabinoid that has attracted scientific studies. According to Schlienz et al. (2018), THC is intoxicating and linked to the 'high' effect of smoking weed. CBD is non-psychoactive, and you will not get intoxicated as long as you take it in the right amounts.

Why Should You Make CBD Part of the Custard Tart Recipe?

If you make your custard tart at home, you are free to feature ingredients you deem fit. You can adjust the ingredient list to fit your needs. One ingredient you may add to your custard tart recipe is CBD.

(2016) added that CBD can fight inflammation, and you can take advantage of the claimed anti-inflammatory benefits by featuring CBD in the custard tart recipe. Still, it is worth noting that the cannabinoid will not change how the custard tart taste. To retain the taste of the dessert, keep CBD amounts low, especially if you are using the cannabinoid for the first time. So, how do you make your CBD custard tart recipe?
