CBD-Infused Hot Chocolate Recipes

With CBD gaining popularity in the world of wellness, it’s common for it to be infused into food and beverages. Cafes have been regularly promoting CBD smoothies and CBD latte. But CBD hot chocolate? Is this the latest fad? 

Anyone who has tried unflavored CBD oil knows about the taste that it can leave behind. While flavored oils provide a decent solution, the oily texture and consistency is still not liked by many. 

This makes CBD infused drinks and beverages the ideal solution! This article explores why hot chocolate is a great way to consume CBD, and also provides recipes for hot chocolate infused with cannabidiol, just for you. 

Why Try CBD Hot Chocolate? 

Sipping on a hot cup of cocoa with your favourite CBD oil tincture is the best way to add CBD to your diet. Some of the health benefits that it offers are as follows: 

  • Great Taste: CBD hot chocolate is incredibly tasty when compared to products like tinctures. 
  • Adjustable Dosage: If you’re making CBD hot chocolate at home, you can customize the amount of CBD you use as per your liking. You can use as many tinctures as you need to get the amount that works for you. 
  • Relaxing Effects: Many people take CBD to relax and unwind, but adding that to a cup of hot cocoa adds a whole new layer. 
  • Long-term benefits: CBD beverages act like food when consumed in the sense that it’s released slowly over a long period of time. This means that you will enjoy the benefits for longer, making it an ideal snack between meals. 

Choose the Best CBD for Your Cuppa

There are several ways to add CBD into your cup of hot chocolate. First, you need to determine whether a CBD isolate works for you or if a full-spectrum product is your best bet. Remember,  CBD does not bind to water, so it is important to use milk in hot chocolate for a desirable and homogeneous consistency. All of the recipes below work well with any CBD tincture. Of course, our CBD ReliefX®️ Pain Drops are our personal favorite when it comes to adding CBD oil to hot chocolate.  

Below are a few recipes for hot chocolate using CBD. You can use any of your favorite CBD products, but be sure to calculate the number of drops to add based on the amount you need.
