CBD Infused Hot Chocolate Recipes

CBD has really taken over the wellness industry. It is now commonplace to hear about your friends taking CBD supplements in order to boost their health and wellbeing. But CBD-infused Hot Chocolate recipes? Has it really come to this?

In truth, the CBD industry is so big that there are now a virtually endless range of consumption methods. This is great news, because it means that there is something for everyone! Generally, though, people start out with sublingual CBD oils and tinctures, which are taken by placing drops beneath the tongue.

Mostly, CBD oils come without any flavorings, leaving the natural hemp taste to take over. Many people find this taste unpleasant, so they opt to either look for a flavored tincture or add their oil to a drink or food product. 

Fortunately, you can still get many of the benefits of CBD oil without having to taste it. One such way is making a CBD hot chocolate. You can tailor any specific dose by using the dropper provided, but still drink the CBD in the ultra-enjoyable form of a delicious beverage.

Today, we are looking at four delicious CBD hot chocolate recipes to keep you warm and cozy in the evenings.

Are CBD Hot Chocolates a Good Idea?

First of all, it’s important to consider whether CBD hot chocolates are right for you. They are, in principle, great. They provide a tasty way to take your CBD, without the taste and texture of CBD oil.

However, you have to remember that you are drinking the CBD, meaning that it is processed similarly to an edible or capsule. In other words, the CBD may take a couple of hours to take effect, as opposed to the 30 or so minutes if you take it sublingually. The CBD is also released over a longer period, meaning its effects can last longer.

Taking CBD is a very individual experience, and your method of imbibing will depend on a lot of personal factors. Of course, if you are dieting and avoiding sugar, then hot cocoa probably isn’t the choice for you! In fact, we wouldn’t really recommend having a CBD hot chocolate every single day, but they certainly make a great treat every once in a while!

Choosing the Right CBD for Your Hot Chocolate

When it comes to choosing the right CBD product for your hot chocolate, you have a multitude of options. CBD isolate powders can easily be stirred into drinks and make a wonderful, flavorless addition; CBD liposomes can mix easily with other liquids and are perfect for CBD beverages.

However, it’s a lot easier to get your hands on CBD oils than it is either of the above products. Furthermore, it’s easier to dose them with a strength that suits you. While your regular, natural-tasting CBD oil could be great for your CBD hot chocolate, you can also try out flavored options to whip up a taste sensation.

For example, our Pure Kana CBD oils are available in Natural, Mint and Vanilla flavors, all of which can be used to create delightful hot chocolate experiences. You can buy each one in a different strength, depending on your personal needs.

So, without further ado, here are our four favorite recipes to create that perfect CBD hot chocolate!
