Heal through Cooking with CBD

If you want a better health routine, cooking using cannabidiol or CBD is one of the many ways to do so. You can use it in a variety of healthy dishes by drizzling it on top of a dish, adding it to coffee or tea, or even infusing food with it.

CBD is a cannabinoid in hemp and cannabis just like THC but it is not psychoactive. Even if you take a lot of it, you would feel no euphoria at all. It has a lot of medicinal and therapeutic benefits, with properties that can treat illnesses like inflammation, anxiety and depression. It is even a great source of nutrients, which is what makes it a wonderful ingredient in cooking.

As long as CBD products don’t have any THC, you can buy them anywhere within the USA. This has been approved by the FDA. We were able to acquire 2500 milligrams of CBD tincture and 1 gram of CBD isolate powder for our recipes. These are derived from hemp without any GMOs or pesticides. They can be used to reduce stress, anxiety, and joint pains.

For better use, you can try Pure Source Extracts CBD Products. Because we love gourmet so much, we are continuously discovering new ways to experience food. This is why we decided to create two new recipes that make use of CBD for health. The CBD tincture and powder we have chosen are very adaptable, allowing us to be more inventive in our cooking. Hopefully, you like the recipes we have prepared for you to try.

Ingredients:

Shrimp Pasta

1 dash black pepper

1 dash salt

1 tsp. cayenne pepper

1 tsp. red pepper flakes, ground

1 tbsp. lemon juice, freshly squeezed

1 tbsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. butter

½ cherry tomatoes, mixed and halved

1 lb. asparagus, 2-in. pcs.

1 lb. fresh shrimp, deveined and peeled

8 oz. Gigli pasta, uncooked

 

CBD Raw Pesto

1 dash black pepper

1 dash salt

1 tsp. 2500mg CBD tincture

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 cloves garlic

⅓ Parmesan cheese, grated

1 tbsp. lemon juice, freshly squeezed

1 tbsp. pine nuts

½ cup cherry tomatoes

½ cup Italian parsley, fresh

1 cup basil, fresh

2 cups baby spinach, fresh

Directions:

  1. Let’s start with the ingredients for the raw pesto. Make sure the vegetables are thoroughly rinsed first. Put all the raw pesto ingredients in a food processor or blender. Process or blend them until they become chopped finely. The pesto should turn into a sauce that is smooth.
  2. Scoop the pesto sauce inside a small bowl. Use a spoon for this. Get a saran wrap to cover the bowl. Leave it to chill in the refrigerator.
  1. Let’s proceed with the pasta. Boil the water in a large pot with high heat. Put the Gigli noodles in. Cook the noodles using their included instructions.
  1. Wash the asparagus. Using a knife, slice them into pieces that are 2 inches in length. Do this while you are still cooking the noodles. When you’re done, put the asparagus with the pasta into the boiling water. Let it cook for at least three minutes. Once it’s cooked, use a colander to drain this. Set aside.
  1. Heat the olive oil and butter in a big sauce pan over medium heat. Do this until the butter melts. Coat the shrimp in a blend of black pepper, salt, cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes by dipping. Saturate it more if you want it to be spicier. If not, just sprinkle a few flakes on the shrimp. Add the shrimp to the pan with lemon juice. Cook until the shrimp is completely pink.
  1. Add asparagus and noodles into the pan when you are done cooking the shrimp. Saute these together. Take the pan off the heat after.
  1. Add six to eight tablespoons of pesto sauce, basil leaves and cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.
