11 CBD Recipes For a Tasty Meal That's Good for Your Health

CBD is gaining attention as more people discover its numerous health benefits. From helping with arthritis to soothing anxiety, CBD products can be used in many ways, many of which have nothing to do with getting high. Both CBD and THC come from the cannabis plant, but CBD is sourced from hemp, while THC comes from marijuana. Because of this, CBD doesn't cause the psychoactive effects of THC. Instead, CBD, also called cannabidiol, is used for a variety of health conditions. Making CBD recipes is one way to reap all of its benefits while also have a tasty snack.

CBD can be enjoyed as gummies, oil, tinctures or lotion depending on your preferences and what condition you're treating. CBD edibles are a popular way to consume CBD, great for accessibility and convenience, especially if you don't know where to start. You might feel like you're simply eating a gummy bear, when really you're setting yourself up for a restful night of sleep or an anxiety-free day. These CBD recipes take this feeling a step further, allowing you to enjoy your favorite snacks, sweets and meals while also supporting your wellness by enjoying the many benefits of CBD.

Each of these recipes explains the amount of CBD to use for best results, but you can always start smaller if you're new to CBD, or use a larger amount if you need to. Whether you're making chips and dip for an afternoon snack or a pesto pasta dinner, here are 11 delicious CBD recipes
