CBD. It’s everywhere.
Firstly let’s chat about what CBD is. It’s a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis. Phyto meaning plant. Interestingly the human body has this system called the endocannabinoid system, and this is how CBD and many other cannabinoids have a notable effect on the body - this may be intoxication or “getting high” which is the case for THC (the most commonly talked about cannabinoid), or a heap of other effects, which we are still discovering.
CBD is known for its potential effective treatment for anxiety as well as aiding in sleep and pain management. And since we are in an epidemic of depression and anxiety, you can see why CBD has risen to fame in recent years.
Unfortunately (or fortunately) CBD is not legal for purchase in Australia or New Zealand without a prescription (which are extremely hard to get), unlike virtually every other country in the world where you can buy it over the counter, or even in a CBD latte at your local coffee shop (ok maybe this is just LA but you get the picture).
Anyway I know you’re here for the recipe so for more info on cannabis and CBD, my friends at Hemple have everything you need to know.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
1 cup cashew butter
¼ cup coconut butter, softened
4 tbsp coconut flour
3 tbsp mesquite powder
10 drops liquid stevia OR 4 tbsp maple syrup
1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped
70g dark chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup cacao nibs
In a bowl combine all ingredients, store in a jar in the fridge and enjoy straight from the jar!
* The dose of CBD is up to you! When using Hemple’s Sigma I use either 1 or 2 full droppers per serve.
