Cooking with CBD is still controversial because CBD has the lowest activity levels when taken through the digestive system. It also comes with a big disclaimer that the FDA has not approved using CBD as a food additive. However, many CBD recipes are popping up and people appear to be enjoying them. Be sure to talk to your doctor before trying CBD and ask them if they feel it is safe for you to take CBD by adding it to food.
