Adding extra terpenes to your oil

Adding Terpenes to your tincture

We admit that when a CBD tincture is properly infused with terpenes, it’s incredibly delicious. So how can you do this at home? It’s easy…

  1. Buy some natural terpenes from a local retailer. (If you can’t find them locally, support a small online business that sources sustainable and organic botanical terpenes.)
  2. Add terpenes to unflavored CBD tincture at a rate of 1% of total weight. For example, if you’re infusing a 30mL bottle of CBD tincture, add 1 drop of terpenes at a time, testing the flavor as you go, and increasing the amount to your liking.
  3. Shake vigorously. Terpenes will quickly dissolve into your CBD tincture, giving you a homogenous solution without any special equipment. Easy!

Peanut Butter & Pumpkin CBD Dog Chews

Try our healthy CBD dog treat recipe for your furry friends.

You Will Need:

(1) 15 oz can Pumpkin
1/4 cup of Peanut Butter (prefer Organic)
2 Large Eggs
3 Cups Brown Rice Flour
Kephart Acres CBD oil – 1500mg – unflavored natural 

Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 280° F.
  2. Mix together your peanut butter, pumpkin, eggs and rice flour in a large bowl until thoroughly combined. Wet ingredients first.
  3. Add 300mg of unflavored CBD oil. That would be 6 droppers of our 1500mg oil. Mix very well.
  4. Form dough to make 30 shapes or 30 balls. Flatten the cookie dough balls with a fork in a criss-cross pattern. Use all the dough and try to make all 30 similar in size. This is important as this calculates the amount of CBD in each dog cookie.*
  5. Use a little no-stick spray or a non-stick pan. Bake cookies for about 40-45 minutes. For a little bit of crunch I like to take mine out once the bottoms start to darken. Allow cookies to cool completely on baking sheet, they need to set up before being transferred.
  6. Store in refrigerator.

This recipe has 10mg of CBD in each treat. 

*Calculate dosage for your pet with your Veterinarian. Common dosage varies from 2-5 mg per 10 lbs of pet body weight.

 

 

 

CBD Mocha Latte

Easy CBD Mocha Latte at home

To make a CBD Mocha Latte, you’ll need coffee, milk, cocoa mix, and CBD oil. However, keep in mind that CBD oil doesn’t blend into water, it binds to fats. If you just add drops to your coffee it will just float on top and not mix well. So Instead, you’ll want to blend it in with milk or cream. Because of this, 1%, 2%, whole milk, coconut milk or almond milk creamer work well, but avoid skim milk because it has very little fat.

Use at least a half cup of milk for every cup of coffee, and start with a low dose of CBD oil, until you find what amount works best for you. 

CBD Mocha Latte recipe:

  • 1 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp of your favorite hot chocolate mix
  • 1 dose of CBD oil (natural or unflavored)

Pour the coffee into a small saucepan and heat over low. Stir in your hot chocolate mix until dissolved, and then add in the milk and CBD oil. Whisk until frothy, pour into your mug, and enjoy. And if you prefer, you can always add nutmeg, cinnamon or your favorite topping!

How much CBD should I put in my coffee?

This depends entirely on you own personal preferences. Everyone responds differently to CBD, so it may take a bit of experimentation to find the best dosage.

10-15mg is good start for a calming cup of coffee. Perfect for a lazy weekend brew.

5-10mg is a dose for most weekday mornings. This is because consuming CBD in small doses has been found to be a great compliment to coffee.

Anything below 5mg might be hard to notice and may not negate the negative side effects of caffeine. Please again note, that this is from personal experience and that this is not medical advice.

    Super-easy CBD Brownie Recipe

    It’s time to let go of your stress, with this easy to follow CBD brownie recipe. 

    You Will Need:

    Brownie Mix or use your own homemade recipe (my preference is Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix)

    9×9-inch or 8×8-inch Square Glass or Metal Pan – you can cut 16 perfect squares by marking sections in half and then half again. This is important as this calculates the amount of CBD in each brownie.

    Eggs

    Vegetable oil

    Kephart Acres CBD oil – 1500mg – unflavored natural 

    Directions:

    Follow instructions on box, and just add the CBD oil to vegetable oil. Below is a chart to use with our 1500mg bottle of CBD to determine the amount of CBD to add for either a Light, Medium or Strong recipe. If you choose to make the stronger CBD brownies you can reduce the amount of vegetable oil that was replaced by CBD oil.

    1. (16 servings – light) 12.5 mg servings per brownie add 2 1/2 teaspoons or 4 droppers of CBD oil to recipe = 200mg of CBD
    2. (16 servings – medium) 25 mg servings per brownie add 5 teaspoons or 8 droppers of CBD oil to recipe = 400mg of CBD
    3. (16 servings – strong) 50 mg servings per brownie add 10 teaspoons or 16 droppers of CBD oil to recipe = 800mg CBD

    Hint: Put chocolate icing on the top to practally eliminate any taste of CBD oil, especially if you choose to make a strong batch!

    Hemp Julep for Derby!

    The Hemp Julep is a take-off of the famous Mint Julep, the traditional drink of the Kentucky Derby.  Juleps are served in silver or pewter cups and held by the handle or rim so the cup maintains optimum frost. But can work just as well in any tall glass.

    This recipe is incredibly easy and only requires a few ingredients. The addition of CBD only slightly changes the taste and may add a calming, relaxing effect depending on the amount you use.

    Ingredients:

    2 1/2 ounces of Kentucky Bourbon 

    2 Sugarcubes (or 1/2 ounce simple syrup, maple syrup or honey)

    Desired amount of CBD oil – natural or mint flavored (.25 ml to 1 ml)

    4-5 Mint sprigs

    Ice (crushed ice works best)

    Preparation:

    Place mint leaves in bottom of glass and top with sugar cubes. Gently muddle these together to break up leaves. Add bourbon and CBD oil. Fill glass with crushed ice and stir well until glass becomes frosty. Garnish with hemp leaves (if you have them) and mint. Ta-dah!
