Whether you’re a natural chef or simply looking to take your CBD experience to the next level, crafting your own CBD-infused edibles from the comfort of your own home can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
Even if you don’t consider yourself to be a great cook, you can certainly have a good time making your own CBD edible recipes. To make your search a little easier, we’ve listed an incredible CBD edibles guide for you, complete with CBD edible ideas!
Before we share some tasty CBD edibles ideas with you, you need to know a few basics, like infusing CBD into your desired fat to make cooking easier.
How to infuse CBD into your desired fat
The most popular fats to use for cannabidiol edibles include butter, glycerin, olive oil, and coconut oil. Now, let’s see how to make CBD-infused oil or butter.
Take 8 tbsp. of your favorite oil or butter and put it into a pan
Turn on the stove and allow it to warm up. Keep the temperature on the lower side (320-356°F) to avoid having some of your CBD evaporate.
Once the stove is warm, place the pan onto the oven and gently stir until the butter melts or the oil is warmed.
Add your choice of CBD oil; this can be either pure hemp-derived CBD oil, pure CBD isolates, or a tincture.
Now, use a spoon to mix the pan filled with CBD oil and your choice of oil/butter until well combined.
Either use the entire mixture or store it in a cool, dry place using a sterilized container. To be used later in your favorite dishes as a substitute for regular butter or oil.
Your CBD-infused butter or oil is ready!

In a small bowl, mix canola oil, breadcrumbs, and sharp cheddar. Then sprinkle on top of the macaroni in the baking dish. Allow the dish to bake for 25-35 minutes, remove when the sauce is bubbly, and the macaroni is golden brown on the top.
Finally, heat the canola oil in a medium saucepan. Once the oil is hot, add the sliced onion rings and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain excess oil on a paper towel and add it on top of your delicious mac ’n cheese.
