Preheat the oven up to 200 degrees Celsius

Melt the butter inside a medium-sized pan using low heat. Get off the heat and give room for it to cool slightly. Use the microwave in case you wish to melt the butter.

Add sugar, cottage cheese, egg, currants, lemon zest cup of CBD   oil, and a pinch of nutmeg. Mix until they are fully combined.

Fill the pastry cases and add the last touch of grated nutmeg on the top.

225g of shortcrust pastry

225g of curds

85g of butter

2 eggs that are separated

½ teaspoon grated nutmeg

55g of white sugar

1 cup of CBD-infused milk

55g of currants

Grated peel of one lemon


Line individual small baking tins with the shortcrust pastry. Alternatively, utilize saucers that are heat-proof while baking the tart.

Beat the egg whites until they get stiff

When making the pastry, put the flour, beat the butter together with the sugar, and add the curds and the egg yolks. Add a cup of CBD-infused milk. Mix vigorously. Form a ball. Carefully remove the ball and shape it into a flattened round prepared for rolling.

Stir in the peel, nutmeg, and dried fruits

Fold in the egg whites on a lightly floured surface. With the help of a rolling pin, carefully lift and line the pie dish as you press it down on the base and sides of the tin. Get to trim any surplus pastry and prick the pastry lightly at the base of the tart, and put it aside.

Bake for around half an hour in a moderate oven. Ensure that the pastry turns golden brown and the filling sets. Allow it to cool inside the tin for about 30 minutes before serving. Serve at room temperature or chill before cutting.


Reduce symptoms related to mental health disorders according to Shannon& Opila (2016), CBD is known to cure anxiety and stress. CBD has calming effects that help the brain neurotransmitters to give someone a relaxing effect. According to Moltke (2021), many people have treated insomnia and anxiety in children and dealt with depression.

Maroon& Bost (2018) reported that CBD has Neuroprotective issues-CBD working hand in hand with the endocannabinoid system, and the brain signaling system offers benefits to people suffering from neurological disorders. According to Khalsa et al. (2021), CBD is used in treating epilepsy and Multiple Sclerosis. CBD oil greatly impacts reducing seizures, especially in children.

CBD has benefits for the skin, too, such as dealing with Itching and Dryness. According to  Atalay et al. (2021), CBD is helpful when it comes to curing common skin conditions such as dry skin and itchy skin. Baswan et al. (2020) showed that CBD is endowed with anti-inflammatory properties that are very helpful in minimizing the potential triggers of dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema. Massage oils that have CBD can soften the skin a d reduce the look of irritation on it.

Tips for Cooking with CBD

Be aware of Excess heat – Note that excess heat often ruins the effectiveness of CBD. Heat alters the composition too. If you are frying using CBD, make sure you heat them until they become palatable, then sprinkle the oil on the vegies or what you intend to cook on the pan for a limited time, and you are good to go. Zaharia et al. (2020) noted that CBD gets degraded when exposed to heat and light.

Mix CBD oil with Cooking Oil-This makes the cooking more effective because CBD is soluble in fat. It insinuates that your body will absorb it better alongside other fats such as coconut.


Most people assimilate it with a cheesecake, but it is not the one. Yorkshire curd is very different from modern cheesecake. It is more or less like a rustic tart traditionally backed with the help of a shortcrust pastry base filled with a combination of eggs, butter, curd cheese, sugar-dried fruit species, and nutmeg. It was initially made using curd that was made from the farm. You can still buy it in delicatessens or online or even in supermarkets. There is also a homemade one that you can try out someday. The Yorkshire village members traditionally made this delicacy during feasts and fair days.
