Enjoy your favourite CBD oil in your morning breakfast, for a relaxed and easy start to the day. Potyque shares five quick and easy CBD recipes here.
There are plenty of ways to enjoy your CBD oil, but food and drink is one of the very best.
Infusing your favourite meals with CBD oil is fast becoming one of the most popular ways to enjoy the properties of CBD, but choosing to add it to your breakfast can be a great, relaxing way to begin the day.
Lavender & Honey CBD Latte
Lavender has calming properties of its own, but infusing it with some milk, honey and your preferred dose of CBD, will create an early morning beverage that is sure to ease you into the day ahead.
Grab some of your favourite milk and heat it up in a microwave or in a small saucepan. Add the dried lavender, a tea strainer is best for this, or add it straight to the milk and strain it out once heated through. You can then add your honey and CBD to finish off.
CBD Green Smoothie
A tasty and healthy way to start the day, the green smoothie is a firm early morning favourite, especially for those always on the go. Add a whole banana, half a mango, a handful of spinach, almond milk and your dose of CBD oil to a blender and blend until smooth. This is a great recipe if you find that you’re especially stressed trying to get out the door on time.
CBD Infused Breakfast Pancakes
Everyone loves pancakes and they can be the perfect treat for an indulgent weekend breakfast. To make your pancakes extra special, make up your pancake batter and add your CBD oil to the mixture. You can then top your finished pancakes with your favourite toppings, from strawberries and honey to blueberries and greek yoghurt.
Coconut and Chia CBD Porridge
If you’re looking for something quick, filling and nutritious, then porridge is always a good option. You can make it up first thing in the morning, or mix it all into a mason jar and leave in the fridge overnight to make tasty overnight oats. To make this coconut and chia porridge, add 40g of rolled porridge oats to a pan or your jar, mix in around 250ml of milk, 2 tbsps of desiccated coconut and 2 tbsps of chia seeds. Either leave overnight in the fridge for overnight oats or heat in a pan for toasty morning porridge.
CBD Avocado on Toast
Avocado on toast has become a breakfast staple over the last few years and we can make it even better by adding in some of our CBD oil. When you’re smashing your avocado, add in some CBD oil and mix it thoroughly. You can then spread the avocado on your favourite toast and enjoy a relaxing morning meal.
Each recipe requires the dosage of CBD oil that you currently take regularly, if you’re new to CBD oil, we suggest starting with a low dosage and working your way up according to your needs. For more information on the best CBD dosage for you, check out our blog about finding the perfect dose.

How do you cook with CBD oil?

Adding the CBD oil to your recipes is super simple. If you’re enjoying a salad or sandwich, you can add the CBD oil to your dressing or even to your butter. For smoothies, add it straight to the blender and mix it up with the other ingredients.
The best ways to use CBD when cooking
As CBD oil is fat soluble, pairing it with recipes that have oil, butter or other forms of fat is a great combination. It’s important however, to not directly heat the CBD oil, as this can decrease the effect that the oil has within the recipe. Instead, make sure to add the CBD last where possible. Try and avoid temperatures over 175⁰C, as this can result in a bitter taste within your final product.
For optimal results, infuse ingredients with the oil before using it within your recipe. This helps to reduce oil wastage and improves taste and texture. If you’re including the oil in a dressing or sauce, add it while you are still prepping and make sure it’s mixed in well.
Cooking with CBD oil is a great and convenient way to get your daily dose of CBD. If you’re looking for the perfect CBD oil to include in your next culinary project, take a look at our full range over on the shop.

A new cookbook combines high-end cuisine from across the globe, with the health benefits of cannabis.

A new cookbook, from JuicyFields, combines high-end cuisine from across the globe, with the health benefits of cannabis.
The recipe book, High Cuisine brings haute cuisine style cooking to a whole new level by infusing exquisite dishes with cannabis, a superfood with highly valuable health benefits and umami flavours.
The creative chef behind the book, Andre Schneider, has dedicated a big part of his career to explore cooking with cannabis.
He has specialised in cooking with cannabis in any form and is co writer for the leading “Hanf Magazin” published in Austria, Switzerland and Germany.
For the past two years, Andre has been developing the most delicious cannabis dishes especially for Juicy Fields. From traditional dishes like a Spanish “Roscón de Reyes” to delicious and authentic desserts, Andre knows just how to tempt his audience’s senses with the most spectacular recipes – all of which are cannabis infused. No wonder he is often referred to as the ‘genius of cannabis high cuisine’.
With roots in East Westphalia, Germany, Andre has travelled the world and seen many different kinds of cuisines. On his journeys, he found that each region has its own unique style of cooking, using varieties of spices, herbs and other ingredients that express the local flavour.
No surprise his book is divided into those regions of the world he travelled to himself, collecting inspiration for new gastronomic creations. There is also a whole chapter of authentic traditional recipes, with a twist of cannabis of course.
In cannabis Andre discovered a variety of nutritious ingredients that not only have a spectacular look and taste, they are highly beneficial for both your mind and your body. High Cuisine includes 100 stylishly illustrated recipes that will make you want to get (re)creative in your own kitchen.
The ‘high’ in the book title gives a wink to the mind altering effect cannabis is well known for. Depending on the recipe, Andre chooses the type of cannabis variety that will enhance the culinary experience in a soothing, relaxing way.
So will all Andre’s recipes get you high?
Not by definition, as Andre works with different kinds of compounds and only a few of them trigger a psychoactive effect. However, you will get high with amazement from all the culinary possibilities cannabis has to offer.
The cannabis chef will show and teach you, there are many more parts of the plant you can use. Demystifying its consumption, makes cannabis more accessible as an ingredient in every kitchen. In this sense, High Cuisine is so much more than yet another cooking book. You are invited to take on this incredible culinary adventure.
Andre commented: “This book was basically the result of my passions: cooking, travelling and cannabis. Cannabis is associated with culture everywhere in one way or another, and probably only disappeared from most diets with prohibition, yet this plant offers so much.
“It was important for me to show how much potential there is in cannabis and that it very well deserves its place in the middle and on society’s plates.”

Pancake Day: An easy recipe for protein-packed hemp pancakes
Add a little hemp to the mix this pancake day and reap the nutritional benefits.
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Looking forward to a stack of pancakes later? Here’s how to add a little hemp to the mix and reap the nutritional benefits.
In fact, for centuries, hemp has been a traditional source of food, consumed in Europe and all over the world.
Hemp seeds grow in a brown kernel shell that contains a softer inside, often referred to as a ‘hemp heart.’
These hearts are a multi-functional ingredient that can be pressed into oil, added to salads or eaten as seeds and the leftover product can also be made into protein powder.
Hemp seeds are second only to the soybean for plant-based protein sources, while also being a source of essential fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6, fibre, vitamin E, vitamin B, and minerals like magnesium and iron.
Amino acids are essential for the creation and growth of our muscles, connective tissue and skin. It also provides a significant amount of energy for the body. Omega-3 and 6 work to fight depression and reduce heart disease markers.
Hemp oil, protein powder and flour also retain similar properties, making them a great addition to our diets.
As part of its ongoing mission to raise awareness about hemp and its enormous potential as a multipurpose crop, the European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA) created the Cooking with Hemp recipe book.
It is packed with ideas for using hemp in the kitchen, from adding hemp seeds to soups and smoothies to a drop of CBD in your chocolate brownies.
This simple recipe uses a hemp protein powder – which you can buy from all good health food stores, such as Holland and Barrett or Whole Foods – so your pancakes will be packed with goodness, while also tasting great.
Just add your favourite toppings and enjoy.
30g hemp protein powder
1.5 tbsp baking powder
1 pinch of salt
240 ml vegetable drink
2 tbsp agave syrup
1.5 tbsp apple vinegar
Coconut oil for roasting
Mix dry and wet ingredients in two separate bowls.
Leave for five mins.
Mix wet with dry ingredients until a smooth batter is formed.
Heat coconut oil in a pan and cook pancakes over medium heat until golden brown on both sides.
