5 Dessert Recipes with CBD Flower

Dessert with CBD Flower – There is nothing like a sweet baked treat when you need to lift your spirits or celebrate a festive occasion.  Here at Weed.com, we are all about finding ways to incorporate the hemp plant into our favorite baked dessert, as the properties of the hemp plant can take the experience of consuming these sweets to a whole new level of enjoyment.

That is why we have compiled a list of five baked good recipes that all incorporate CBD flower, perfect for dessert or just a quick snack.  For those who don’t know, CBD flower is the term used to describe the raw buds of the hemp plant, and it’s easier to bake with than many people realize.

Making the CBD Butter for Use in Dessert Recipes

All of these dessert recipes call for CBD butter, which can be prepared ahead of time in batches.  Allow us to first explain how to make this butter, so that when a recipe calls for it, you will already have some ready to go.

 Steps:

  1. One cup of butter (2 sticks) and one cup of hemp flower (roughly 7 to 10 grams).
  2. Line a baking sheet in parchment paper and preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, shaking the pan every 10 minutes gently.
  4. Next, grind the buds using a grinder until coarse.
  5. Now, add the butter and 1 cup of water to a saucepan
  6. Sit at low heat.
  7. Once the butter melts, you can add the ground up CBD flower.
  8. Simmer for 2 and a half hours, stirring occasionally and never allowing the mixture to achieve a boil.
  9. After this time has passed, strain the mixture into a jar.
  10. Refrigerate until solid. Butter can be used for up to six months.
