For instance, Shelke said, cannabinoids are hydrophobic, meaning they are not water-soluble. Cannabinoids also have a high melting point and are “almost waxy,” she said. Cannabis terpenoids are volatile, non-polar, and “have a very distinctive odor and taste. They have good antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties, and they modulate cannabinoid activity.” At the same time, terpenoids can result in off-flavors. The alkaloids in cannabis are important but can also be astringent, which can impact an edible as well.
Manufacturers should also ensure consumers understand the unique properties and effects of edibles as opposed to dietary supplements.
Beverages: CBD is not water-soluble, and formulating it into water-based beverages is always a challenge, said Shelke. “You’re talking about mixing oil and water, and you’re trying to keep them suspended so that they don’t cream up at the top or settle down at the bottom. That really has been the greatest problem that most CBD beverages in the market face,” she said.
For beverages, voiding is also a concern. “Beverages mean rapid absorption, but beverages also mean rapid voiding, so what you’re ingesting also leaves your body rather rapidly,” Shelke warned.
Starting with a high-quality CBD active ingredient produced to exacting specifications is especially critical if that ingredient is to be used in food production. The rigors of food processing will by nature challenge the stability, behavior, and potency of a CBD extract, so starting with the highest-quality ingredient from the get-go is a formulator’s best bet.
There’s nothing better than a bowl of ice cream on a warm day. You can dress up your ice cream with a homemade chocolate shell that also includes your ideal dose of CBD in it. The good thing about Living Matrix Hemp’s CBD extracts is that we have 4 options for you – peppermint, lemon, orange and unflavored. Any of these extracts can be added to your chocolate shell sauce.
Many people use oil diffusers for aromatherapy purposes. The peppermint in our broad spectrum Peppermint extract and Spectrum Plus 1000 formulas work well with other essential oils. Try adding a couple drops of eucalyptus, lemongrass and chamomile oils to your oil diffuser with the peppermint tincture you choose. The aroma is refreshing and calming at the same time.
This recipe makes enough to use several times. Keep it in your refrigerator and just run the container under hot water to return the chocolate to liquid state. Shake well before putting over ice cream.
CBD Oil Chocolate Shell for Ice Cream
Yes, your favorite Living Matrix Hemp CBD Extracts can be added to your shampoo. Sure, there are CBD shampoos on the market, but they might not be available where you are or might be out of your budget. You’ve already got CBD tincture on hand, so why not make your own CBD shampoo?
All you’ll need to do is add 3 or 4 drops of your preferred Living Matrix Hemp CBD Extracts to your shampoo. Mix it up in your hand and then massage it into your scalp and hair thoroughly. Typically you rinse shampoo out right away, but in this case, you’ll want to let it sit for at least 3 minutes.
Since everyone has a different lifestyle, the conventional way to use a tincture (extract or CBD oil) may not be ideal for a specific situation. It’s important for you to know that there are other ways to use CBD extracts so that you always have an option that works for your immediate need.
Use our Peppermint CBD Extracts in Oil Diffusers
To make your own chocolate shell ice cream topping follow these simple instructions:
Your nose will take in just a little bit of the CBD if you’re close enough to the oil diffuser. Your nose does have capillaries in it that can absorb a small amount of the CBD and allow it to enter your bloodstream for distribution.
