Let’s get creative this summer! Tinctures are a very versatile way to take your daily dose of CBD. A lot of people take them sublingually, just putting the oil right under their tongue for the fastest effect. Some people swallow the tincture as it is, especially if it contains alcohol, to avoid its burning sensations. Most of the tinctures out there are either MCT oil-based or alcohol-based, and either kind works perfectly for mixing into food and drinks! For example, CBD coffee is becoming a common way to start the day for medical cannabis consumers around the world. Have you ever made your own popsicles? Don’t worry, it’s really easy. The ones I made as a kid were just frozen grape juice, and they were amazing. Now imagine all kinds of delicious frozen creations, homemade right to your taste, and containing CBD? That’s a healthy treat that just might help you beat the heat this summer! Popsicle molds are low in cost and available at most dollar stores and larger grocery stores. You can also order them online in many shapes and sizes! If you don’t have popsicle molds, here are some alternatives:
Measure out CBD tincture according to how many popsicles you are making, such as one dose per popsicle. Perhaps half a dose per popsicle if you plan on eating more than one at once.
Beat milk and pudding mix together in a bowl using an electric mixer until thickened, about 2 minutes. Measure 1 1/2 cup pudding and set remaining pudding aside for another use.
Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs into the bottom of each ice pop mold; add about 1/4 cup ice cream and desired amount of CBD tincture. Sprinkle another layer of graham cracker crumbs and top with about 1/4 cup pudding. Add a final layer of graham cracker crumbs. Freeze until completely frozen, about 3 hours.
These are only two of the endless possibilities for CBD popsicles! In case you were wondering, yes, these can be made with THC tinctures too, of course.
