This is a different kind of dessert that is not only delicious, but also provides you with all the health benefits of chocolate and CBD. So if you want to learn a new way to consume CBD in a safe and enjoyable way, here’s the recipe for a CBD chocolate muffin.
What are chocolate muffins with CBD?
It is worth mentioning that at any time of the year, many of us enjoy a delicious muffin. They don’t last long because they look so wonderful and tempting to consume. Generally speaking, a muffin is a baked quick bread cake, which can be sweet or savory.
Muffins are usually thick and substantial. Its name comes from a French word used to describe soft bread. Baking powder is commonly used in place of yeast in chocolate muffin recipes. In addition, these muffins come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including English muffins and American muffins.
Muffins, unlike cupcakes, have a higher proportion of components. In a muffin batter, there needs to be more flour and less sugar, if applicable. When preparing muffins, you can use any form of liquid oil instead of butter as the fat.
In the traditional recipe, muffins often call for two or more eggs. Additional ingredients such as fruits and berries can be added. Even, as in this case, cannabidiol CBD. It is also common for savory seasonings to be incorporated, resulting in a muffin with a considerably thicker texture than any other muffin.
Obviously, the two main ingredients in these muffins are chocolate and CBD.
Chocolate and CBD
Chocolate is one of the most popular and appreciated foods in the world. Its Latin name, Heobroma cacao, literally translates as “food of the gods”. There are so many things to appreciate about this ancient food. For example, its delicious taste, creamy texture and the way it makes you feel. However, it turns out that there is some science behind the little burst of happiness that chocolate provides.
(AEA) is a neurotransmitter formed from arachidonic acid that is synthesized in the body. The term ananda, which means “happiness, pleasure, joy and enjoyment” in Sanskrit, is the source of its name. This is how it got the name “bliss molecule”.
Both cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolate, and hemp-derived CBD include anandamide. They also contain chemicals called N-acylethanolamines, which have the ability to slow down their degradation. Here’s what happens: fatty acid amide hydrolase, or FAAH, is an enzyme that all humans have.
When anandamide enters a cell, FAAH begins to degrade it. In fact, limiting the breakdown of anandamide in the body improved mood and reversed stress-induced anxiety in mice, according to a study published in Translational Psychiatry. In the study, low levels of anandamide were found to be negatively associated with stress, anxiety and terror responses.
Dark chocolate, rather than white chocolate, provides the highest amount of anandamide. Even better, it is often recommended to consume cocoa beans, which contain no sugar and a higher concentration of the healthful ingredients in chocolate.
Baking with CBD
Baking with CBD is something that has recently become very popular among consumers of this cannabidiol. Many people have even been baking foods with CBD since they started consuming it practically.
Also, baking CBD-infused foods is a great way to get your daily dose of CBD. At the same time you have an excellent excuse to treat yourself to a delicious dessert. Obviously we are not suggesting that you eat chocolate CBD muffins every day. It’s just a way to treat yourself.
We have to keep in mind that many people don’t really like the taste of CBD. Therefore, using a food like a muffin to mask the subtle taste of medical cannabis will make it easier to consume.
