    CBD Infused Lavender Hot Chocolate. Calming, yet delicious!

    Date: 2017-10-29

    It's hardly a surprise that we've become a CBD-obsessed world. Natural disasters and terror-inducing news headlines have increased in direct proportion to tolerance for marijuana, which was legalized or decriminalized in nine states, bringing the total states where recreational or medical use is allowed to 30. CBD, however, is legal in all 50 states. It is one of the compounds found in the hemp plant—and unlike the most famous compound, THC, it's completely non-psychoactive (and, in fact, it actually seems to regulate a lot of the more drug-like effects of THC).  CBD has popped up in chocolate and elixirs. Cacao nicely camouflages the grassy undertones of a full spectrum CBD oil, which may be why they're so often together (that and, well—people love chocolate). What you can expect: a feeling of peacefulness, better sleep, and a quieter mind, free from racing thoughts. Lavender adds a powerfully relaxing aroma and additional levels of calm. And the fact that the hot chocolate is delicious enough to feel like a real act of self-care? That's just a bonus.

    CBD-Infused Lavender Hot Chocolate

    Serves 1

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup unsweetened plant-based milk of choice (almond and hemp work great; coconut is also delicious but changes the flavor a bit)
    • 1 tablespoon dried culinary lavender
    • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 dropperful neutral-flavored CBD oil (we used Huron Hemp Pure CBD 1000mg)
    • Pinch of sea salt

    Method

    In a small pot, bring milk just to boil. Add lavender and cover; let steep for 10 minutes. Pour through a tea strainer or fine-mesh strainer to remove lavender, reserving infused milk. Lastly, blend with cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla, sea salt, and CBD oil. Serve immediately. Original source: Mind Body Green Recipe Check out our full line of CBD oils and tinctures here!
