5 Neat Wintertime Baking Recipes with CBD Hemp Flower

Hemp flower is the raw buds of the hemp plant, which are naturally rich in valuable compounds including CBD, terpenes and nutrients.  While smoking and vaping flower are the most popular ways to consume this type of product, you can also bake with it to make your own homemade edibles.  And, what better time to get into the kitchen with CBD flower than during the winter, when we crave rich and satisfying seasonal baked goods?

Making the CBD Butter

Initially, you need to create a CBD-infused butter that can be used as the fat in your recipe, as hemp flower on its own is not fat-soluble.  Once you make a batch, it can last for about 6 months in the fridge.

First, place two cups of NAM Wellness loose hemp flower buds onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and then bake for 25 minutes at 250 degrees.  This will activate the cannabinoids so that they absorb properly into the body.

Now, grind your buds up coarsely, and place them into a saucepan along with a cup of water and 2 sticks of unsalted butter.  Simmer on low heat for 2 and a half hours, making sure it doesn’t boil.  Pour the butter into a jar through a strainer, and then refrigerate.

Here are 5 recipes that you can create with CBD butter made from NAM Wellness CBD hemp flower.
