CBD In Food: It’s Not B.S., It’s Beneficial

Jamie Hall first began using CBD as a postpartum aid.

She found it more gentle than other pharmaceutical options, and began making infused treats for other moms, too. Just a few years later, she is now putting the final touches on her cookbook Alternative Alchemy, full of CBD-centric sweets, snacks and small savories (like soups, dips and dressings) that are packed with herbs and adaptogens, and are largely (but not entirely) vegan and gluten-free. Check, check, check!

Here, she reveals to Fleur Marché why she believes CBD is beneficial to your mental health and why she prefers to consume it with food. (Plus, she shares her dos and don’ts for cooking with CBD, and three recipes that are perfect for fall. Pro Tip: Consuming CBD with a healthy fat is most ideal.)

'Alternative Alchemy' is due Fall 2020 via Prestel Publishing. Follow Jamie at @AltAlchemy.
