It’s National CBD day today! CBD, or cannabidiol is a naturally occurring component of cannabis plants. Unlike the other commonly known cannabinoid, THC, CBD has been known to not produce intoxicating effects after ingestion to the body. In fact, research shows that there are potential medicinal properties in CBD.
Cannabis use is progressively becoming more and more acceptable in our society and has been in use in our medical fields for a while. Although some may be intimidated by the sound of people smoking joints in public everywhere, combustion is not the only way to ingest cannabis. In fact, many people prefer to eat infused edibles as opposed smoking. So, in the spirit of National CBD day, here are three of the best cookbooks for cannabis infused meals.
