The winter season is the time of the year when late dawns and chilled breaths make us hide in our bed and feel lazy all day long. But, still, it is the best time of the year and loved by most. It is not loved just for the cold, cozy weather and the short days, but also because of the holiday season, it brings along. These form the first signs of winter along with the enchanting pumpkin-laded products that flood the markets. These products can be seen almost anywhere you go. In this blog too, we are going to discuss one of the highly recommended recipes for the perfect fall dessert or snack. We call it the CBD-infused Pumpkin Spice Cookies, as they have been infused with CBD, the cannabinoid that heals it all. But, before moving to the recipe, let us first understand what CBD means and how CBD and Pumpkin form the ideal combination for a healthy treat this season.
What CBD means?
CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol. It is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant and has become popular in the last few years due to its miraculous healing properties. It is non-psychoactive, safe and completely organic which gives it a head start among other healers. One of the 113 identified cannabinoids in the hemp plant, CBD has been found effective against a number of physical and mental issues like epilepsy, pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, cognition, movement disorders, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s. CBD is also known to possess antioxidant and anti-aging properties that makes it a perfect supplement for skincare too. Now, that you already know how effective CBD is, let’s take a look at why have we used CBD recipes.
Why is CBD used in this recipe?
The best thing about CBD is that it perfectly blends with almost anything as it is available in many forms. It can be availed in different forms like oils, tinctures, vapes and even CBD bath bombs. CBD is effective to treat these issues in all forms as it acts on the ECS of our body. The ECS or endocannabinoid system is composed of endocannabinoids, which bind to cannabinoid receptors and regulate a variety of important physiological and cognitive processes. Some of these processes include appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory. Thus, CBD is not only powerful but is also available in many potent forms that makes it the perfect choice for all types of people. For this recipe, we will be using the Full Spectrum CBD in cold-pressed hemp by ThoughtCloud as it does not influence the taste of pumpkin and blends well to give your tasty treat a healthy outlook.
Why is Pumpkin used in this recipe?
A symbol of Halloween, the pumpkin fruit is mostly seen near Halloween and Thanksgiving. But, this plump fruit is far more than just a Halloween decor or a pie filling. In fact, it is one of the most nutritious fruits available in the winter season. It is not only rich in vitamins and minerals but also low in calories. What’s best is that pumpkin can be inculcated in your snacks, soups, salads, desserts, and preserves. Even better, it can be used as a calorie-free substitute for butter. We are using pumpkin in this recipe not only because of its taste but also as it contains potassium, is low on calories, acts as an antioxidant and helps to replace butter for baking. Pumpkins also decrease the chances of developing cancer, asthma and heart diseases, and body degeneration. Much like CBD, it also helps to delay aging and reduce obesity and increase overall mortality which makes it the ideal choice to bake some spicy cookies for the healthy lot.
