Adding 99% Pure CBD Isolate Powder or Full Spectrum CBD Oil to foods and beverages is an excellent way of consuming CBD. CBDelicious is a cooking series of recipes combining delicious foods and CBD products.
Summer is just around the corner, which means the season of fresh produce has arrived. One of our favorite ways to enjoy warm weather fruits and vegetables is to combine them into a refreshing salad. Since most of us do not have time to spend hours in the kitchen, this quick recipe is not only delicious, but it is effortless to make and combines two of our favorite summer fruits: apricots and watermelon.
This recipe is also useful for your health and is packed with nutrients. By incorporating CBDistillery’s 99% Pure CBDelicious Isolate Powder derived from hemp into the balsamic honey vinaigrette, your body receives a broad spectrum of therapeutic benefits.
If you are unfamiliar with CBD Isolate, it is a flavorless nonpsychoactive powder that is derived from cannabis or hemp. Unlike THC, CBD Isolate won’t get you high. Instead, it acts as powerful medicine and is an excellent source of nutrition. By using it to your food, you can create gourmet recipes and still receive the healing powers of CBD.
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil or kalamata cold pressed olive oil
0.25 grams CBDistillery 99% Pure CBDelicious Isolate Powder
Sea salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
Preheat a grill (or grill pan) to medium heat. Rinse the apricots and slice into sixths. Put the apricot slices on a skewer and brush lightly with olive oil. Place the apricots on the grill or grill pan and cook for 1 – 2 minutes per side. Grill just enough to caramelize them, but not cook them all the way through. Remove from heat and set aside.
Next, cut the watermelon, mint, and onion. Use a knife to cut the watermelon in half and then into cubes. Discard the rind and seeds into your compost and place the cubes into a medium bowl. Set aside. For the red onion, chop ¼ of the onion into long, thin pieces to be incorporated into the salad. Also be sure to chop the mint into small, edible pieces. Place into a bowl and set aside.
Now it is time to make the vinaigrette. In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey, olive oil, and .25 grams of CBDistillery 99% Pure CBDelicious Isolate Powder (about ¼ of the jar). Mix until all of the ingredients are combined well. Season with salt and pepper. Remember, you will most likely have leftover vinaigrette to use for future salads, so be sure to have an air-tight container that will preserve the CBD dressing.
The final step is to build your salad. In a salad bowl, add the arugula, mint, and red onion. Using a tablespoon, add your desired amount of salad dressing to the bowl and toss well. Plate the arugula mix onto four plates and top with watermelon, grilled apricots, and a sprinkle of feta cheese along with fresh ground black pepper. Pair with your favorite summer white wine, and enjoy!

Unlike THC, CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that’s derived from cannabis and hemp. You can consume large amounts of CBD and it won’t get you high.

Beginning with the raw pesto ingredients, rinse off the leafy greens thoroughly and place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend or process until finely chopped and pesto becomes a smooth sauce.
Using a spoon, scoop the pesto sauce into a small bowl, cover with saran wrap, and place into the refrigerator until needed.
Next, it’s time to make the pasta. Using a large pot, boil water over high heat. Add the uncooked Gigli noodles and cook according to package instructions.
Using a large saucepan, heat butter and olive oil over medium heat until melted. Before adding the shrimp to the pan, dip both sides of the shrimp into a blend of ground red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. We prefer extra spicy, so make sure your shrimps are saturated with the spices. If you prefer less spicy, simply sprinkle some red pepper flakes on top. Add shrimp to the heated pan, add lemon juice, and cook until the shrimp turn pink on both sides.
While the noodles are cooking, wash the asparagus and cut into 2-inch pieces. Place the asparagus into the boiling water with the pasta for the last 3 minutes of cook time. Drain in a colander and set aside.
Once the shrimp have finished cooking, add the noodles and asparagus to the pan. Saute together briefly and remove from heat.
Using the pesto sauce, add in 6 – 8 tablespoons depending on your preference. Add cherry tomatoes, small fresh basil leaves, and top with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
Serve and enjoy.

CBD Infused Steak and Veggie Buddha Bowl
The sixth recipe in the CBDelicious Cooking Series, Cooking with CBD. Looking for a healthy dinner option? This incredibly delicious, and easy to make, CBD Infused Steak and Veggie Buddha Bowl is an excellent source of protein paired with the 99% pure CBD isolate.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C) and arrange sweet potatoes and onions on a bare baking sheet. Drizzle both with a bit of oil, making sure the flesh of the sweet potatoes are well coated. Roast for 8-10 minutes. While vegetables are roasting, heat a large skillet over medium heat and add chickpeas to a mixing bowl and toss with seasonings. Once hot, add 1 Tbsp oil and chickpeas and sauté, stirring frequently. If they’re browning too quickly, turn down heat. If there isn’t much browning going on, increase heat. I found 10 minutes total at slightly over medium heat was perfect. Once the chickpeas are browned and fragrant, remove from heat and set aside. Remove veggies from the oven after 8 – 10 minutes and flip sweet potatoes and add broccolini. Drizzle broccolini with a bit of olive oil and season with a pinch each salt and pepper. Bake for another 8-10 minutes, then remove from oven and add kale. Drizzle kale with a touch more oil and season with a pinch each salt and pepper. Bake for another 4-5 minutes then set aside. Prepare sauce by adding tahini, agave, lemon juice and CBD Isolate to a mixing bowl and whisking to combine. Add hot water until a pourable sauce is formed. Set aside. To serve: Divide vegetables between serving bowls and top with chickpeas + tahini sauce. Top with grilled steak. Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep for a few days in the fridge. There will most likely be leftover sauce, which can be added to leftovers or other meals.
1. Preheat oven 400° F. In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, jack cheese, and CBD Isolate until well blended. 2. Roll out the crescent rolls and using a pizza cutter or knife, cut into long pieces lengthwise. 3. Fill each jalepeño half with the cheese mixture. Wrap each jalapeño half with the dough, leaving a space for the eyes. Use two pieces of dough if necessary. Brush with egg mixture and place on baking sheet. 4. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and press the eyes into the cheese where the opening is. Serve and Enjoy!
