Tired? Try a CBD Recipe for Sleep

Sleep troubles are not uncommon. In fact, a Consumer Reports survey once found that 27% of U.S. adults had trouble sleeping most nights. Another 68% said they struggled with sleep at least once a week. 

That’s a lot of missed rest. 

If you’re fed up with not getting the rest you need, it may be worth trying CBD for sleep. After all, a 2019 Consumer Reports survey found nearly 10% of Americans who have used CBD have taken it to improve sleep. The majority of respondents said it worked. 

There are plenty of ways to take CBD for sleep. You can take tinctures, oils, and capsules, and more. Incorporating CBD into your nighttime routine is a good way to wind down and ease your way into a restful night. 

That’s why we suggest trying a CBD recipe for sleep. It’s an immersive way to take your CBD and allows you to add other sleep-promoting ingredients. We’ll show you some easy-to-make concoctions to add to your CBD recipe book. 

Cherry juice and CBD drink 

This recipe comes from Healthline. It utilizes the sleep-promoting benefits of tart cherries, which are rich in melatonin. Alongside CBD, this drink should be enough to get you to hit the hay. 

Ingredients:

  • One cup of tart cherry juice
  • One cup of white grape juice
  • Your preferred CBD oil dose
  • Optional: ½ dropper of valerian root tincture 

If you have valerian root tincture, it’s worth adding to this CBD recipe for sleep. It’s been used to promote sleep for a long time and many people find it to be useful. However, it’s not a crucial ingredient in this CBD recipe. 

To make the drink, just stir all of the ingredients together in a glass and enjoy it before bed. 

Almond butter and banana toast with CBD

Almonds are another source of melatonin, which is a sleep-regulating hormone. They’re a great snack on their own before bed but can also be taken to the next level as a before-bed snack. Add some bananas, a source of tryptophan and magnesium (two more sleep-promoting compounds) and CBD and you’ve got a recipe for success. 

Plus, making this CBD-infused version of almond butter and banana toast is super easy. 

Ingredients:

  • Two slices of bread
  • Almond butter
  • One banana
  • Your preferred CBD oil dose 

Steps:

Toast the bread to your preference. Add a scoop of peanut butter to a small cup or bowl and drop your preferred CBD oil dose in. Stir the two ingredients until well mixed. 

Spread the almond butter and CBD oil mixture on to the toast, and top with slices of banana. For an extra kick, add a sprinkle of cinnamon before eating. 

Nighttime CBD golden milk 

This recipe is adapted from a golden milk recipe by the Well Plated blog. It’s easy to make and incredibly soothing for a good night’s sleep.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk 
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 ½ teaspoons almond butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric 
  • ⅛ tsp ground ginger 
  • Your preferred CBD oil dose

Mix the almond butter with your preferred CBD dose in a bowl or cup until thoroughly mixed. Then add all of the ingredients to a small saucepan. Heat over medium until hot but not boiling. Be sure to stir frequently to prevent sticking or burning. Pour into a glass and enjoy your nighttime drink.

So let’s get to it. We’ll give you the basics on how to cook with CBD. Plus, we’ll show you a super easy CBD recipe to whip up this summer. 

Best practices for cooking with CBD oil 

Cooking with CBD oil is super easy. But there are a few things to keep in mind when you do it to ensure that your recipes turn out as planned. First of all, only use high quality, pure CBD for cooking. It’s crucial to use products that are tested for purity and potency from an ISO-accredited laboratory.

Secondly, when cooking with CBD oil, it’s best to use recipes with fat. Butter and oil in a recipe will let you know that it’s a good match. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure that the recipe you use does not get too hot to scald the CBD. You do not want it to come in contact with direct heat. That’s why most recipes will instruct you to stir it into the final product as opposed to frying it on the skillet. 

Finally, start low if you don’t know how much CBD is the right dose for you. It can be a process to figure out the optimal dose. Keep in mind that when you eat CBD, your body will break some of it down. If you normally take it sublingually, you may want to add a little more to account for what will break down in the body.

Vegetarian Chili and CBD recipe

Like most instances of cooking with CBD, this recipe is super adaptable and easy to make. Feel free to swap out different vegetables or add in extra to make it even more flavorful. We sourced and adapted this recipe from a Food Network Summer Vegetable Chili

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil 
  • 1 chopped medium onion
  • 3 chopped garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin 
  • 1 diced poblano chili 
  • ½ cup diced mushrooms
  • 2 cups frozen corn 
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 can black beans 
  • ½ cup fresh diced tomatoes (or canned)
  • Your preferred dose of CBD oil 
  • 1 ½ cups vegetable broth 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • Cheese, sour cream, or cilantro to top (optional)

Directions:

Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook for 1-2 minutes until they become aromatic. Stir in garlic, chili powder, cumin, and poblano. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until tender and aromatic. Add the mushrooms and tomatoes and continue to sauté over medium heat. Add the corn and stir for another 2-3 minutes. Now, add in the beans, tomatoes, and 1 ½ cups of vegetable broth to the saucepan. Stir and reduce heat to medium-low. Add salt and pepper to taste. 

When the chili is thick, about 20 minutes later, stir in your preferred dose of CBD oil. You want to add it towards the end of the process, once you’ve lowered the heat on your food. Remember, when cooking with CBD you don’t want to scald the CBD oil or cause it to lose efficiency because of the heat.
