Chicken Salad with CBD Infused Lemon Dressing

Instructions:

Start by rubbing 2  tablespoons of olive oil over your chicken pieces, before seasoning this with salt and black pepper, which has some amazing benefits.

Then heat your chicken in a frying pan of a medium-high heat for around 10 minutes, turning regularly to ensure that each piece browns evenly.

Once your chicken is cooked, set this aside in a large salad bowl for cooling.

When it comes to making your CBD-infused lemon dressing, simply mix a tablespoon is Dijon mustard with lemon zest and around two tablespoons of lemon juice.

Then add one-quarter cup of mayonnaise and up to two cloves of garlic (depending on taste), before infusing the mix with a dose of CBD oil.

Stir your dressing until this is emulsified, seasoning with salt and pepper as you do so.

Then, simply add your choice of chopped vegetables to the mix, with cucumber, radishes and avocado adding taste and texture in equal measure.

At this stage, all that is left is to stir in your chicken pieces and serve!

On a final note, you can infuse the dish with extra CBD oil by using this as part of the rub for your chicken.

More specifically, you can infuse this with vegetable oil, salt and pepper to increase your dose, without compromising the integrity of the dish.

You will need:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 chicken thighs, skinless and boneless, sliced

For the salad and dressing:

  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Zest and juice 1½ lemons
  • 2 tsp clear honey
  • 1 ripe avocado, finely sliced
  • ½ cucumber, sliced
  • Cherry Tomatoes sliced
  • 100g radishes, finely sliced

CBD Vape Pens

CBD, or cannabidiol, is experiencing huge popularity, and vaping is one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to consume it. CBD is a compound found in cannabis plants that can be extracted from marijuana or industrial hemp and processed for consumption in oral and edible products, or for inhalation in e-liquid (usually called CBD vape oil). Hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years for its fiber, and more recently as a source of CBD. Hemp-derived CBD doesn’t contain measurable amounts of THC, the psychoactive ingredient that produces the well-known “high” produced by marijuana. Vaping CBD is a more effective method of consumption than edibles, capsules, or topicals because the inhalation provides greater bioavailability. That means the user can absorb more of the product. While there is still more to learn about the long-term effects of vaping CBD, vaping is considered to be a much safer way to consume than smoking, while being equally effective.

Should you vape CBD?

Despite all the research already done, scientists and medical professionals agree that there is still much more to discover about the potential of vaping CBD. Now that you’ve seen some of the current research, you can make an informed decision whether a CBD vape is right for you. Even if you’re perfectly healthy, you may get benefits from using CBD. If you think that vaping is not for you, there are other ways to take CBD, like tinctures, and oral and edible products.

CBD vape juice vs CBD tincture:

CBD oil is also referred to as hemp oil and has been traditionally used in an oral tincture. It usually contains MCT oil (derived from coconuts) and is not suitable for inhalation! Studies have shown that inhaling oil like that can pose serious health risks like lipoid pneumonia. Unlike CBD vape juice, CBD tinctures are strictly for ingestion. Unfortunately, many of them do not have proper warning labels and are sold in e-juice style dropper bottles. There’s an important distinction to make between CBD oil tinctures and CBD oil made for inhalation. CBD oral tinctures are oil-based whereas CBD vape oil is not.

CBD Cartridges: 

Similar to THC oil cartridges, these are slim disposable e-cig tanks filled with CBD e-juice. (Organa’s CBD Vapes contain pure CBD distillate, made using a CO2 or a solvent-based extraction method.) They connect to a standard 510 battery and provide an easy entry into vaping CBD.  Available in several yummy flavours, you can check out Organa CBD vapes under Vape Pens on our site!

Cooking with CBD(Isolate)

 

How to Cook with CBD Isolate

Cooking with CBD isolate is a lot easier than you might think, and a lot of fun too. Those boring meals that once inspired you to order in suddenly seem more interesting. To turn any recipe into a cannabidiol masterpiece using CBD isolate powder you’ll need to know a few basic things: How to use the “Double Boiling Method.”,What a Carrier oil is,
CBD & Temperature.


The Double Boiling Method

The double boiling method is a simple heat control technique used in cooking. This method is typically used for ingredients you wouldn’t want to be exposed to high heat – such as cannabidiol. Whenever we cook with CBD isolate, the FIRST thing we do is use the double boiling method to infuse the isolate with a carrier oil. The double boiling method is important because it is how we turn the pure CBD isolate powder into an ingredient that can be used in just about any recipe.


How to Use the Double Boiling Method

To infuse isolated cannabinoids with a carrier oil – use the double boiling method as described below. Keep in mind that you’ll want to use an appropriate amount of carrier oil to match your dose. As you experiment you may use different doses, but we are going to keep things simple. If you are cooking with 1 gram of CBD isolate powder, you’ll want to use 1-2 teaspoons of carrier oil.

Fill the larger pot about a quarter full with water – you’ll want the water to sit about an inch below the smaller pot.
Place the smaller pot on top of the larger pot sitting above the water. You do not want the smaller pot to be directly affected by the boiling water.

  • Bring water to a low boil at a medium-low heat
  • Add your carrier oil to the smaller pot
  • Add your isolate powder to the carrier oil
  • Stir for 10-15 minutes. Be sure to blend your isolate with the carrier oil well – you shouldn’t be able to see any of the isolate once combined.

Once cooled – pour your CBD infused carrier oil into a container that’ll work best for whatever you’re trying to do.


What is a Carrier Oil?

A carrier oil, which is also known as a base oil, is a plant-derived oil which is used to “carry” essential oils and plant supplements. Essential oils and plant supplements can be overly potent or difficult for us to absorb directly, so carrier oils are used to help facilitate the process. Some carrier oils have benefits of their own and each work differently with the different plants they are mixed with. For example, studies show that unrefined coconut MCT oil provides better absorption of CBD than other carrier oils.


CBD & Temperature

When cooking with CBD one thing, you’ll need to keep in mind is the temperature. High temperatures will cause you to burn off the cannabidiol that you’re trying to infuse into your food. To avoid losing potency, you’ll need to keep an eye on the temperature or use the cannabidiol in your food a bit differently.For example, if you want to enjoy infused grilled chicken, you can’t really just put CBD into the chicken. Instead, you’ll need to infuse the cannabidiol with a sauce to put on the chicken once it has finished cooking. This is why recipes for pasta sauces, barbecue sauces, smoothies, and other low heat recipes are so popular. Sauces and other cold-prep recipes ensure you aren’t losing CBD while you cook. However, you can bake with CBD as well. Baking with CBD requires a bit more mindfulness. Your cannabidiol will be in direct heat, so you’ll want to be sure to keep temperatures below 320 degrees.

Now that you’re familiar with the basics of cooking with CBD, go forth my friends and create tasty cannabinol infused treats!

Benefits of CBD Edibles

BENEFITS OF EDIBLES:

Depending on what effect your after CBD edibles can have several benefits over tinctures or inhaling a CBD vapourizer pen. When you take a tincture or inhale CBD, effects begin within a minute. CBD edibles on the other hand can take up to an hour to kick in which could be a downside depending on your situation. In a CBD edible, the active compound (CBD) is combined within the food therefor causing a slower release process as you digest the food, because of this edibles can last up to 4 hours longer than inhaled CBD.

Another benefit of using edibles is that they are discreet and you can plan in advance and take one before work or before a flight for example. It is also very easy to control exactly how much you take, from a low dose 10mg gummy to 240mg chocolate bar, you will be able to play with your dose and slowly find what is the perfect amount for you.

Though the popularity of vaporizer pens is massive and still on the rise, the long-term health consequences of inhaling hot oil is still undetermined. Plus, many vape pens also possess thinning agents including propylene glycol (PG) and polyethylene glycol (PEG) which could potentially produce harmful carcinogens when heated to temperatures above 224℃. This makes edibles a much better option for your lungs.

CBD Isolate: What is it?

What is CBD Isolate?

With the rapid growth of the CBD industry and constant advances in its technology, there are a lot of terms floating around that are unfamiliar, if not confusing, to many people. “Nano-Amplified CBD” is one of them. While the science and biological make-up of CBD is the subject of much research and scholarly articles, it can all be broken down into simple terms.

The Basics of Cannabidiol (CBD)

CBD starts with the all-natural botanical concentrate that includes the cannabinoids and fatty acids found in hemp plants. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the more than 85 cannabinoids found in various concentrations throughout the different parts of the hemp plant, which is part of the Cannabiceae family. Cannabinoids are class of botanical chemical compounds that deliver an array benefits.

This CBD is then sent to a lab for third-party verification of quality. Afterward, it is added to or infused into foods, liquids, nutritional supplements, topicals, and even cosmetics. Also, CBD contains no THC, so products made from the isolate are not psychotropic and cannot get you “high”.

Psychoactive V. Psychedelic

The world “psychoactive” gets thrown around a lot to describe the “high” that comes with marijuana. It is also used in regard to the effects you do not get from CBD products. However, this loose definition needs clarification.

Psychoactive substances of any kind cross the blood/brain barrier and cause a chemical reaction within the brain. By this definition, substances such as coffee, alcohol, tobacco and even Robitussin can be defined as having a “psychoactive” effect on people, in that it will cause a chemical reaction in the brain.

Psychedelic substances also cross the blood/brain barrier. The difference is Psychedelic substances affect mood or behavior and can even expand consciousness.

CBD Isolate is not psychedelic, in that it does not cause the “high” associated with marijuana. However, it could be considered “psychoactive” by the scientific definition of the term.

What’s the Difference Between CBD Isolate vs Full Spectrum CBD?

When CBD is referred to as full spectrum or whole plant CBD, it means that the CBD contains all other cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant including CBN (Cannabinol), CBG (Cannabigerol), and THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin), to name a few. And yes, along with these cannabinoids, Full Spectrum CBD also contains trace amounts of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), but in very low concentrations (up to .3%), resulting in very minimal psychoactive stimulation. CBD Isolate, on the other hand, is simply purified CBD that has been extracted from the marijuana plant and isolated from the other cannabinoids.

Does CBD oil get you high? Short answer, no.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is naturally non-intoxicating. You may feel calmer when taking it as CBD’s effects are more relaxing vs a high feeling.

Not only will CBD not get you high, but it counteracts the high effects of THC, which is the compound notorious for getting people high.

 

CBD & Opioid Addiction

Opioid addiction is currently a worldwide epidemic. In America alone approximately 702,000 people have died from opioid overdose since 2000. Studies have shown that 21%-29% of people who are prescribed opioids end up mis using them and 8%-12% develop an opioid use disorder. Approximately 80% of heroine addicts began with prescription opioids. These numbers are staggering and there is an urgent need for a solution.

While much research is still needed, recent studies have shown that CBD has great probability to help with opioid addiction. One of the most problematic symptoms of opioid use is reoccurring cravings, sometimes persisting years into recovery, which is why the relapse rate is so high. In 2019 a double blind placebo study (meaning neither doctor nor patient knows weather the active drug or placebo is being administered) using CBD on opioid addiction patients showed that even a single dose of CBD can reduce cue-induced cravings and anxiety associated with the craving. This reaction is conclusive with the fact that physically CB1 receptors are co-localized with opioid receptors.

Many studies are currently being done on CBD and opioid use disorders and while CBD will not cure addiction, the evidence so far is very promising that CBD could be very effective in keeping recovering users from relapsing, and therefor could be a key factor in ending the worldwide opioid epidemic we currently face.

Benefits of Carrot Seed Oil

Carrot seed oil is an essential oil produced when seeds and plant from wild carrots are steam distilled. Wild carrots are not like the orange carrots you are used to eating but are actually a flower that can be white or purple with a deep taproot under ground and these carrots are not commonly eaten by humans.

Carrot seed oil has many medical benefits due to its unique properties. This oil is antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidizing and antiseptic. It also has carminative (flatulent-reducing), and diuretic (urine-stimulating) properties.

Some of the things carrot seed oil is best for:

Wound care – Carrot seed oil carries antiseptic properties to fight against bacteria and fungi. Applied topically, it may help in reducing infections on the skin or in minor wounds. This also makes it a great remedy for fresh tattoo care.

Skin and Hair – Carrot seed oil is an antioxidant, which are substances that prevent damaging oxidation in the body caused by free-radicals or agents, this gives it an anti aging effect making it a common ingredient in skin care products . Carrot seed oil also contains stimulant properties, which can improve overall scalp and hair health.

Digestive Health – Because of its cleansing and diuretic properties carrot seed oil is great for indigestion, water retention and bloating.

 

 

 

 

CBD & Tolerance

Tolerance is a concept describing a subjects reduced reaction to a drug following repeated/prolonged use. It is commonly known that THC found in cannabis produces tolerance. When someone ingests THC it tightly binds to your CB1 receptors and overtime this will decrease the amount of available receptors therefore decreasing the effect of the drug.

Recent studies have shown that CBD actually has the opposite effect as THC and produces what is called reverse tolerance. This occurs because CBD increases the bodies natural production of endocannabinoids. Due to this reverse tolerance effect its actually probable you will need to lower your dose as time goes on. There are a few reasons why some people believe that have developed a tolerance when in-fact that is not the case. Changing the CBD product you use often may cause lowered results due to variance in potency or added ingredients. It is also possible to achieve CBD saturation which simply means your body is holding as much CBD as it physically can, if this occurs you simply need to take a day or 2 off and then everything will be back to normal.
