What is CBD?
CBD is a compound derived from the hemp plant. According to Hazekamp (2018), this compound is safe for consumption as it is not psychoactive. Some people fear taking CBD since they think it might make them high. Casajuana Kögel et al. (2018) noted that THC is the compound from the same plant that causes a high feeling. Some CBD products contain little amount of THC that cannot make you high. Combining CBD with THC increases its effectiveness in treating various conditions such as pain. CBD can be incorporated into edibles such as cakes and bread pudding. This is a good method of benefiting from CBD without necessarily taking it in the form of tinctures and pills. You can add CBD oil to your bread pudding and enjoy a tastier and healthier dessert.
How to make an Outstanding Bread Pudding with CBD
To make a perfect bread pudding with CBD, handle the ingredients well. Some of the ingredients, such as CBD, are very sensitive to light and high temperatures. Your oven temperatures should not exceed 350 degrees. If you doubt your oven thermometer, you can use a separate oven thermometer for accuracy. Store CBD oil in an air-tight container in a dark room. Mix ingredients at a medium speed to ensure they mix evenly. If you want your bread pudding to have a great flavor, go for flavored CBD oil.
You only need a few basic pieces of equipment in preparation for bread puddings. These include:
- An oven
- An oven thermometer
- A large pan
- A large bowl
- Whipping stick
- 2 measuring cups
- 2 teaspoons
- 8 slices of old bread (any bread)
- 4 medium-sized eggs
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoon white sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoon CBD oil
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. It might take 20 min to reach the intended temperatures. This gives you enough time to mix the other ingredients. Ensure your oven thermometer is correct, or use a separate oven thermometer for accuracy.
- Rip apart the slices of bread and place them on the bottom of the pan.
- Beat the eggs into the large mixing bowl. Add the butter and whip them at a medium speed.
- Add the dry ingredients (cinnamon and sugar) and mix well.
- Add vanilla extract. Mix well.
- Add milk into the mixture. Finally, add the CBD oil. Final mix all the ingredients using an electric beater. If the batter is dry, you can add some more milk.
- Pour the mixture over the bread in the pan. Ensure the slices are completely soaked in the mixture. If your bread slices are very dense and dry, soak for about 10-15 minutes before baking.
- Slip the pan into the oven, preferably in the middle. Bake for 40 minutes.
- Bake until the outer coating turns brown. Avoid regular opening of the oven door as cold air might interfere with your pudding.
- Remove from oven and let cool on a rack wire.

How to Serve Bread Pudding with CBD
Bread pudding with CBD can be served in different ways. Some may prefer taking it as a dessert or a breakfast. You can dust the bread pudding with icing sugar or ice cream. You can sprinkle some on the top of bread for those who love nuts before pouring in the batter. You may also choose to substitute white sugar with brown sugar. If you like it cold, as I do, you can put the pudding in the refrigerator for a few minutes. Since pudding contains CBD, it is not advisable to give it to children below two years, breastfeeding women, and people under medication as it might interact with some medications. Overdosing CBD might cause liver damage though such cases are very rare.

Bread puddings are generally healthy. Adding CBD to bread pudding makes it healthier. Atalay et al. (2019) commented that CBD contains antidepressants, anti-inflammatory, and anti-seizure properties. As Corroon & Phillips (2018) argued, these properties make it ideal for treating insomnia, anxiety, depression, cancer-related pain, epilepsy, and other conditions. When purchasing CBD oil for baking, it is recommendedto select the full spectrum oil because it contains other hemp plant compounds such as THC.
