Chocolate is a lot of people’s favorite dessert, mine included. Since I started taking CBD oil to help with my anxiety and to help me sleep better, I wondered about all the things I could make with it infused in. CBD chocolates came to mind first and since making these yummy treats, it’s my favorite way to get my doses.
If you’re new to CBD oil, let me explain. Cannabidiol, known as CBD, is one of 104 chemical compounds found in marijuana. It will not get you high since it doesn’t have any THC in it, which is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. It doesn’t make you feel crazy different. It does take kind of bad.
CBD oil is known to help with loads of different ailments including:
- trouble sleeping
- cancer related symptoms
- heart health
Sounds like a miracle oil, huh? Well don’t knock it before you try it.
The best way I’ve found to take CBD oil is by putting drops under your tongue, this way you really don’t taste it. You can also put it in your water, smoothies, or on pretty much any food. I actually give my dog CBD oil to help with his separation anxiety and it’s been a huge help for him. He no longer pees or poops the minute I leave the house (which was a problem for a while) and he shakes less (he’s a chihuahua). My brother gives his dog CBD oil as well since she gets nervous and scared a lot and it helps chill her out.
For me, CBD oil has helped calm me down and just be genuinely happier. I think it also has been helping my skin too! I get asked where I buy my CBD oil since there are a good amount of companies that sell it now. You have to be careful because there are some that sell fake CBD oil. Also do your research first before buying!
Where To Buy CBD OilMy favorite supplier is NuLeaf and it’s what I give my dog. The price is pretty affordable and you get high quality product. I also love Pro Leaf CBD, which is what I used for my chocolates since I have the peppermint flavor and it seemed like a perfect match.
To make these chocolates, you are going to need a few things that you probably already have.
- Peppermint CBD oil
- Chocolate chips
- Coconut oil
- Molding trays
- Measuring cup
- Candy canes
- Plastic sandwich bags
I used dark chocolate morsels for my chocolate chips but you can use any kind of chocolate. For the candy canes, I used peppermint ones in some and jolly rancher flavored ones in the others. I got my molding trays from Walmart but you can buy my tropical one here.
Making CBD Oil Infused Chocolates
1 The first step is to melt them down on low heat on your stovetop in a pot or pan. I used an entire bag and plus a cup.
2 Then add in 1/2 cup of coconut oil and stir it around until the mixture is more of a liquid.
3 Next, remove the pot or pan from the heat and let it cool for 10 minutes.
4 Once cooled, add in the CBD oil. You can choose how much you want to add but I did 6-8 squirts, which would be the equivalent of full droppers.
5 Pour the chocolate mixture into your molds. This part can get a little messy so I recommend putting the chocolate into a glass measuring cup first. Only fill the molds 3/4 full.
6 Put the candy canes or mints into a plastic bag and use the hammer to smash them up. It’s best to do this on a cutting board so you don’t damage your countertops.
7 Sprinkle the smashed candy bits on top of the molds you just poured.
8 Place the molds in the fridge for 3 hours then they are ready to enjoy! It’s best to keep the chocolates refrigerated because they will get ready mushy or melt if left out too long.
As for how many of these to eat at a time, I like to do 2-3 and it gives me just enough CBD. I wouldn’t eat them all in one sitting since that is a lot of CBD oil at once. Best to be safe! However, they make the perfect dessert to share with a friend!
These CBD chocolates would make the perfect gift during the holiday season. Put them in a chocolate box and give them to a loved one. They are too delicious to keep to yourself! My favorites are the jolly rancher ones since they are sweet but a little sour.
These CBD oil chocolates are my go-to if I want to get my dose of CBD oil quickly. I just pop 2 or 3 in my mouth and go. Plus they make a sweet treat! The benefits of CBD oil are too great to pass up. I believe it can help anyone. If you get a headache, take some CBD oil. Trouble falling asleep? You know what to do. It’s a natural product that can help you, why wouldn’t you give it a try?
