CBD-Infused Recipes That Are Perfect for the Holidays

CBD-Infused Recipes That Are Perfect for the Holidays

We’re right around the corner from the most wonderful time of the year, and one of the many ways in which we celebrate the holidays is by getting busy in the kitchen, whipping up our favorite meals and baked goods as part of long-cherished traditions.  If you’re a hemp enthusiast, you can make your own seasonal edibles and incorporate CBD oil recipes into holiday classics, both sweet and savory.

How to Determine the Amount of CBD Oil for a Recipe

Before we get into the recipes, it’s important to know how much CBD oil to add to each dish below.  Ultimately, the standard serving amount of CBD per portion is 10 to 25 milligrams.  However, Sky Wellness CBD Oils come in a variety of milligram strength options.  Each bottle contains 30 milliliters, so you can divide the number of milligrams in a bottle by 30 – for example, a 1000mg bottle contains 33 milligrams per milliliter), as each dropper holds approximately one milliliter of oil.  Using this example, if you wanted each serving to contain 10 milligrams of CBD, you’d multiply a 3rd of a dropper by the number of portions in the recipe.

Traditional Thanksgiving Stuffing (Serves About 10)

This stuffing tastes just like the stuffing you grew up with each Thanksgiving, but the addition of CBD allows you to enjoy the many properties of the hemp plant all while savoring this iconic side dish. This is probably one of our favorite hemp recipes for the whole holiday season since it can be eaten with almost any dish.

Ingredients:

  • 8 tbsp butter, unsalted, plus more for greasing your baking dish
  • 2 cups celery, chopped
  • 1 large yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 10 cups rye bread, broken up or cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tbsp fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 tsp dried thyme, ground
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary, ground
  • 1 ½ cups chicken or turkey broth
  • Sky Wellness CBD Oil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9x13 casserole dish.
  3. Melt the butter in a large pan on medium-high heat.
  4. Into the pan, add the onion and celery, along with salt & pepper.
  5. Stir continuously until the vegetables become soft and translucent.
  6. Remove them from the heat and pour them into a large mixing bowl.
  7. Add the remaining ingredients (including the CBD) and mix together so that the chicken stock is absorbed evenly into the other ingredients.
  8. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
  9. Then, remove the foil and bake for another 15 minutes.
