CBD Oil in Food

CBD oil has proven to be a highly effective natural remedy and complementary treatment for all kinds of conditions, from cancer and Parkinson’s disease to Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, and PTSD too. Recently, new ways to take CBD Oil in Australia have been explored, and many people are choosing to take CBD in food and drinks.

CBD oil is made from cannabidiol, a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the hemp and marijuana plants. To make CBD oil, cannabidiol is extracted from industrial hemp plants and then diluted into a carrier oil, like MCT oil.

This oil is most commonly taken by simply dropping a little under the tongue and letting it absorb into the system. From there, it interacts with the endocannabinoid system in the human body, triggering a range of beneficial effects.

High quality, verified CBD oils like Rick’s Hemp Oil can be used to treat aches and pains, as well as relieving stress and anxiety, reducing the frequency and severity of seizures, and even slowing the spread of diseases.

As well as dropping CBD oil under the tongue, it’s also possible to find or make CBD food and CBD drinks too. You can buy CBD oil and mix it in with sauces, salads, and smoothies, or purchase pre-made food and drink products with this oil already infused into their recipes.

This gives people a new and different way to take CBD oil, and it’s proving popular in the Australian market. From Melbourne to Adelaide, lots of Australians are giving CBD food a try.

CBD Food Products

The list of CBD infused foods and drinks is growing larger by the day, and we're seeing more and more companies joining in with this craze and offering their CBD goods for public consumption.

The advantage of these CBD-infused foods is that they allow people to enjoy the benefits of CBD oil while simply eating and drinking like normal, without needing to worry about measuring doses or dripping oil under their tongues. They also give groups of friends ways to share the benefits together over a snack or meal.

Here are some examples of CBD oil food products:

  • Kombucha - Kombucha is a tea-based drink, enriched with probiotics and known for its health benefits for the digestive system.
  • Gummies - Those looking to enjoy CBD in food can opt for simple chewy gummies with various colours and shapes.
  • Brownies - CBD can also be added to brownie recipes and shared with friends.
  • Cold Brews - CBD infused drinks include cold brews, made with various herbs, spices, fruits, and tea leaves.

Cooking with CBD Oil

As well as looking for CBD foods and CBD drinks near me, you can also simply buy high quality, proven CBD oil, such as Rick's Hemp Oil, and cook with it at home. A lot of Australians in locations like the Gold Coast and Brisbane are giving this a try.

Cooking food with CBD oil is relatively simple, as you can add this oil to a lot of different drinks, desserts, and dishes.

It can be mixed in with smoothies, coffees, teas, and milkshakes, for example. However, it has a low boiling point and evaporates quite quickly, so shouldn't be used as a cooking oil. Instead, simply drop the right dosage into your recipes and enjoy.

Experts say that it blends well with olive oil, sugar, chocolate, and caffeine. It can also be added to alcoholic drinks such as cocktails, but taking too much alcohol may null the effects of CBD, so these drinks should be consumed in moderation.


CBD has a lot to offer, and it’s interesting to know that you don’t simply have to take it via a classic dropper. You can opt for CBD infused foods and drinks too, or even try cooking up some of your own CBD treats quite simply too.
