By now you know about all of the benefits of CBD. Now for a moment imagine getting those benefits in your favorite flavor of ice cream.
In part one of the “Great Experiment” we talked briefly about CBD infused beer. In part two we’ll discuss ice-cream. If you remember from my blog post “Cooking with CBD: Quick Tips” we covered that CBD oil is fat soluble, which makes a CBD infused ice cream an ideal mash-up.
What is CBD Ice Cream?
So as not to over simplify. CBD ice cream has all of the ingredients you would expect to find in ice cream, milk, sugar, egg, flavoring, etc… but with the added compound of CBD.
Just in case you’re not a CBD user, or if this is the first blog post that you’re reading in your quest to learn more about CBD and are wondering if eating CBD ice cream will get you intoxicated, here are a couple of statements from The World Health Organization.
This statement comes from the World Health Organization’s Expert Committee on Drug Addiction, which concludes that CBD does not produce any significant psychoactive or cardiovascular effects:
The World Health Organization has ensured that cannabidiol (CBD), is a “safe” and “non-addictive” substance that does not seem to have “any potential for abuse or dependence” on the consumer.
So what is CBD Ice Cream? Its all the deliciousness of ice cream infused with all of the physical and mental healing properties of CBD. Mary Poppins ultimate “Spoon full of sugar”.
Is CBD Ice Cream available now?
Getting some CBD infused ice cream all depends on what state you live in and what the laws are on CBD use in foods in accordance with the FDA. Ben and Jerry’s however has taken on the task of getting CBD infused ice cream to stores across the country, I’ll discuss more as this story develops. If you’ve had a chance to try it, email me and let me know your thoughts! Until next time, be well… – Will Upshur
