Our Perfect CBD Infused Rice Krispies Recipe

Chefs should all note that CBD is non-psychoactive. Unlike marijuana products containing THC, the use of CBD in this recipe is not intended to induce euphoria. Since most CBD oils do not contain THC, they cannot be used as a recreational drug.
What are the Benefits of Infusing CBD Oil in Rice Krispies?
Rice Krispies are not just meant to help satisfy your sugar cravings. Rice is full of fiber, and it is a great ingredient that you can use to help promote regular digestion. Other ingredients, such as oats, nuts, and even dried fruits, can make rice krispie treats even more nutritious. And by adding CBD oil, this recipe will be made more beneficial for your health. Here are some of the benefits of adding CBD oil to your rice krispie treats:
1) CBD Oil May Help Provide Pain Relief
CBD oil has been scientifically proven to help reduce chronic pain by interacting with our nervous system and by helping to reduce inflammation. This will allow you to enjoy a fantastic-tasting dessert that will not just tickle your tastebuds, but that will also help provide you with soothing relief from pain. This will also make our special rice krispies treat an excellent dessert for people suffering from pain caused by arthritis.
2) CBD Oil May Help Reduce Anxiety
Our CBD infused rice krispies may be able to help you calm down and get temporary relief from anxiety. Aside from helping to soothe your cravings with its sugar content, the CBD oil added into the recipe is known to have an anxiolytic effect that may help you feel relaxed. This makes our rice krispies recipe an excellent snack that you can serve to guests who feel anxious or to loved ones after a long stressful day at work.
3) CBD Oil May Help Fight Against Depression
I’m pretty sure that our rice krispies alone would be able to make anyone smile. But to make it even better, we added CBD oil to make it a treat that may help fight depression. CBD has been scientifically proven to fight against depression by acting on the brain’s serotonin receptors and by improving mood and behavior.
4) CBD Oil May Help Give You Clear Skin
Finally, a dessert that will make you happy on the inside and make you beautiful on the outside! With the help of CBD oil, our special rice krispie treats can help clear up your face from acne. CBD oil has been proven to help fight against acne by reducing inflammation and by helping to control your skin’s sebum production.
5) CBD Oil may help protect your brain
One of the most widely recognized uses for CBD is in the treatment of epileptic seizures. This study paved the way to new discoveries, and now, CBD oil has been scientifically proven to help provide neuroprotective benefits. CBD oil may also help reduce inflammation associated with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, and it may also be used to slow down cognitive decline.
The Best CBD Oil for Rice Krispies
When purchasing CBD oil to make this amazing recipe, you need to buy the best possible product. When it comes to getting its full effect, you will have to focus on getting pure CBD oil with the best quality and potency. While many manufacturers get CBD oil from Cannabis Sativa, it is important to know whether it is from marijuana or hemp.
While pure CBD oil sourced from both plants are effective, CBD oil from marijuana may contain enough THC to cause psychoactive effects. When buying CBD oil, it is crucial that you know which product is right for you. Here are the different types of CBD oils that you can use for our CBD infused rice krispies:
Full Spectrum CBD Oil
Made from the whole plant, including the leaves and flowers, it will contain a wide range of cannabinoids, including THC. If the product contains more than 0.3% THC, you can expect it to have psychoactive properties. This will be ideal for those who want the full effects of all the cannabinoid compounds found in marijuana or hemp in each bite.
Broad Spectrum CBD Oil
Made in the same process as full-spectrum CBD oil, the broad spectrum CBD oil is also processed using the entire plant. However, this type of CBD oil is further processed to remove any THC content. This type of CBD oil is ideal for those who react differently to THC. We recommend this CBD oil for those who do not want any of THC’s effects in their rice krispies.
CBD Oil isolate
Arguably the most preferred type of CBD oil available today, CBD oil isolate, is carefully processed in order to contain as much as 98% CBD. This is highly recommended for those who need the potency and full effects from CBD. This type of CBD oil is recommended if you want rice krispies that are utterly delicious and beneficial for your health.
When it comes to CBD oil, you need to also take into consideration the dosing. It is vital to limit your dosing, especially if you want your rice krispies also to contain THC. Some CBD oils are labeled as 5%, 10% and 20% CBD. The higher the concentration of the CBD oil used, the more pronounced its effects will be. This is why we also recommend that you use small amounts or CBD oil in smaller concentrations when making our rice krispies recipe if it is your first time using CBD or any weed-based product.
CBD Infused Rice Krispies Recipe
To make our CBD infused rice krispies, we will be following a traditional rice krispies recipe. The original recipe is an excellent way for you to practice cooking with CBD oil. We will also share the different ways that you can improve this recipe so you can make it your own.
1) Place parchment paper on a 9×13 baking pan. Lightly spray the baking pan with non-stick spray. You can also use a little oil or melted butter if you do not have non-stick spray around.
2) Using a large non-stick pot, melt the butter and add the marshmallows. Use low to medium heat to avoid burning the butter and the marshmallows. Keep folding the marshmallows into the butter using a spatula until all the marshmallows have been completely melted.
3) As soon as the marshmallows have melted, remove the pot from the heat. Add the CBD oil, vanilla extract, and salt and make sure that they are properly incorporated into the mixture.
4) Fold the rice cereal and make sure that each grain has been completely coated with the marshmallow mixture.
5) Transfer the mixture onto the baking pan using a rubber spatula. Gently spread and press the rice krispie into the pan. Avoid pressing the mixture too hard so that it can still be light and crunchy.
6) Let the rice krispie set for at least an hour. For best results, allow the mixture to cool down before covering it tightly and allowing it to sit overnight at room temperature.
7) After allowing it to set, use the parchment paper to lift the whole treat out of the pan. On a chopping board, neatly cut the rice krispies into bite-sized squares.
CBD Infused Rice Krispies Recipe Variations
If you want to make the recipe unique, you can always substitute the current ingredients with the ones you prefer to use. You can also opt to add more ingredients to the list to make an even more delicious or decadent rice krispies treat.
To make the recipe more CBD rich, you can add more CBD oil. However, you should take note that many CBD oils have a strong taste, and adding too much of it may make the treat less palatable. If you want to add more cannabinoids to it, or if you want to add cannabis to the treat, you can substitute the 3/4 cup unsalted butter with 2 tbsp of cannabis-infused butter and 2 tbsp of cannabis-infused oil.
To make the recipe more nutritious, you can add fruits and nuts with the rice cereals. Dried fruits such as cranberries, apricots, and even shredded coconut are a great way to make unique-tasting rice krispies. Nuts such as sunflower seeds, almonds, and peanuts can also add taste and texture.
If you want to make your rice krispies even more decadent, we recommend that you top the krispies with a glaze. Glazes can be made from chocolate, peanut butter, caramel, even coconut butter. You can also opt to make your rice krispies a vegan or low in calories. You can do this by using vegetable oils or by replacing marshmallows with maple syrup or low-calorie syrups.
How to Store CBD-Infused Rice Krispy Treats
For as long as the rice krispies are correctly stored, they can last for up to 5 days. You can store the treat in an airtight container and refrigerate it. If you want to preserve the treat longer, you need to be careful with cross-contamination with other food sources since bacteria can easily grow on food items that contain a lot of sugar or carbohydrates. Pick up each treat with clean hands and store it with a layer of parchment paper on top so that it will stay crispy.
