How Could CBD Cookies Change My Life?

cbd cookies

At Calm Recovery, we are continually striving to produce the best products for you, that have a multitude of health benefits and taste so good! That’s why we have created our very own CBD Cookies.

There is nothing better than a good cup of CBD coffee – or is there? Cookies and coffee are natural partners, and a cookie can bring a real touch of decadence to a well-earned break in a busy day. With this in mind, we have recently introduced our range of Vegan-Friendly CBD Cookies to satisfy your taste buds and provide you with as many health-giving properties as possible.

Our calming CBD Cookies are both vegan and vegetarian-friendly, so everyone in the family can enjoy this delicious addition to that morning or afternoon break. That’s assuming that you do not want to eat them all yourself!  Alternatively, enjoy them with hot milk or our Vegan Hot Chocolate to relax you and prepare you for a great nights’ sleep. They even go really well with a cup of tea and a touch of our zero-calorie CBD Syrup! There really is nothing that cannot be improved with the addition of a delicious baked treat.

CBD Gummies

There are not that many CBD edibles on the market, and certainly nothing to match ours, so we are told. Some are really not that good for you (CBD gummies spring to mind) and many CBD edibles really do not have the right level of full-spectrum hemp extract, so many people aren’t receiving the full benefits. You can rest assured that our recipes have been tried and tested many times to develop flavour and make this addition to your diet as satisfying, yummy and healthy as possible. The fact that they’ll also take the edge off an increasingly anxious world is an additional benefit.

Buying CBD Cookies from us could not be simpler. They are freshly baked to order, ensuring that both texture and flavour are as on point as possible when you receive them. Coming in handy boxes of 4, 6 or 8, you won’t end up with half-eaten packets that have gone soggy in the cupboard – they are just too good to waste! Try a box of 4 if you are not sure you will like them – but we bet you will!

Our three flavours have been carefully crafted with the finest ingredients and top-quality CBD extract, imparting wonderful flavours to suit any palate. Any good cookie in the world should have elements of crispness and ‘gooiness’ and ours have both of those important qualities. Made from wheat flour, which is heart healthy, protein and magnesium rich, and full of many other vitamins and minerals. It’s hard to believe that something that tastes so appealing can be healthy too, but that’s the dynamic combination that we build our business around.

There are a few cookie flavours on the market, but it’s unusual to find CBD White Chocolate and Raspberry Cookies, although there are some made in both Europe and the USA. But will they be as fresh and delicious as ours? – we think not. If you are a chocolate lover, you can also try our Triple Chocolate CBD Cookies, or for that slightly salty and sweet combination, the Salted Caramel. Every one of these is baked to perfection. Dip or dunk into your CBD Coffee or Hot Chocolate, the choice is yours!

Our CBD Cookies do contain sugar, we can’t deny that. To coin a popular phrase, that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. Rest assured, though; our recipe uses light brown sugar. Light brown sugar is slightly lower in calories than refined white sugar and does contain more minerals. What is also encouraging is the fact that recent dental surveys show that CBD Oil based products can actually be beneficial to teeth and gums as well as post dental pain and inflammation. How many other brands can claim that a cookie a day keeps the dentist away?

Speaking of dentists, some oral healthcare professionals have conducted research into this area. They believe that the calming effect of CBD can ease dental anxiety and contribute to overall oral health. 50% of UK adults have ‘dentaphobia’ with around a quarter of those demonstrating acute anxiety – not a nice place to be.

We are not saying that CBD cookies are a substitute for regular teeth cleaning and hygiene, but even though there is a sugar content, our CBD Cookies have positive benefits as well. However, it is still wise to limit sugar intake for overall bodily health. The good news is that our cookies are so appealing that you’ll quickly break your craving for any other kind of sweet baked goods.

If you’re interested in learning more about our CBD cookies, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’ll answer any questions you may have, ensuring that you find the perfect product for your palate and requirements.

The Best CBD Infused Products On The Market

calm recovery logo

As CBD infused products become more and more popular every year it allows for more interesting products to be brought to market. CBD products have only really started getting popular in the last few years, and so there is nigh on unlimited room for the products to grow within the current market.

The fact that the market is expanding exponentially, alongside product ranges, the CBD sector has become something of a double edged sword. On one hand, the opportunity is growing so businesses can jump on the growing trend of CBD-infused products and make a business work. On the other hand, the competition grows and businesses have to compete for customers which can lead to some businesses going bust.

We like to look at the latter as a positive because businesses will have to create higher quality products at a fait price to stay competitive, which is exactly what we do.

Now that we know there is a vast expanding product range of CBD infused products out there we need to have a look in detail what they are about. In this blog post we would like to take you through which CBD products we think are the best the market.

Skincare 

The skincare and beauty market is one of the biggest markets in the world with figures set to soar to $24 billion in the UK alone by 2024. Looking at these types of numbers, it’s no surprise that this industry has infiltrated the CBD monolith.

But why would a skincare company bring out a CBD-infused product?

Well apart from the obvious rise in popularity as we discussed earlier, CBD has proven skincare qualities which make it a perfect fit for the industry. The two most common problems that the skincare industry aims to tackle are ageing and acne. Well to no surprise (to us anyway) the CBD train keeps on chugging – it helps tackle both of these issues!

Studies have shown CBD to reduce the signs of acne. This is because acne is an inflammatory condition and CBD has anti-inflammatory qualities. Simple really. In terms of anti-ageing, CBD is known to be rich in anti-oxidants which help lessen the signs of ageing in the skin. We predict that CBD infused skincare products are going to be one of the leading markets within the CBD niche.

Edibles

Okay so you have heard of edibles before, right?

Maybe you have associated them with something that will get you high because you think it contains marijuana. Well this isn’t the case for CBD edibles as there is no THC in CBD. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psycho active and is very much legal, making it safe for consumption.

There are a wide variety of CBD edibles available on the market and can be purchased online or in stores, these include:

  • Cookies – Soon to be added to our website, available in three different flavours; salted caramel, triple chocolate and white chocolate & raspberry.
  • Gummies – These can come in the shape of bears, fruits, rings, basically anything you can think of. They’re just like any regular gummies on the market.
  • Protein bars – Very useful for when you train in the gym and want that protein and CBD hit.
  • Dried fruit – A product that is becoming more popular with lots of different options to try out.

Edibles can provide longer lasting effects in comparison to other CBD products as they are broken down slowly in the digestive system. They are also easy to create yourself at home if you want to try it yourself and save money.

CBD drinks

CBD drinks are becoming increasingly popular as different brands start to create their own CBD-infused drinks. Doing this has allowed for the CBD drinks market to develop and become very competitive with a lot of new companies sprouting up.

CBD oil works well with drinks that are foamy such as fizzy drinks or beer, whereas CBD tinctures work better with non fizzy drinks such as cocktails and juice. In reality though both of them can work with beverages either way.  Other CBD beverages include:

  • Teas
  • Wines
  • Energy drinks
  • Water
  • Coconut water
  • Kombucha

Of course we wouldn’t do a blog post of the best CBD products on the market without mentioning CBD coffee, and that’s not only because we sell it, but because we genuinely think it is an awesome CBD product.

Our coffee comes infused with CBD or you can buy our CBD coffee syrup and use that to get your daily dose of CBD with your daily cup of Joe. We also have a Vegan hot chocolate range which could be used as an alternative for any of you out there who aren’t huge coffee lovers.

Do CBD Edibles Taste Bad?

Everything you need to know about edible CBD products

When you hear CBD your mind probably goes straight to oils and whilst CBD oil is definitely one of the most common ways to incorporate CBD into your lifestyle, it’s certainly not the only one. Coffee and edibles are 2 great alternatives to oil for those who want to reap some of the many benefits of CBD.

 What are CBD edibles and what do they taste like?

CBD edibles are becoming more and more popular as people search for the right CBD product for them. After all, who can resist a cookie or sweet? CBD edibles come in various forms meaning you’re bound to find the perfect one for you. Options such as cakes and muffins are perfect for a post-dinner treat meanwhile biscuits and cookies are the ideal afternoon snack. CBD sweets and gummies are great options if you’re on the go but still keen to incorporate CBD into your daily life meaning there’s no excuse, no matter how busy you are.

Sweet CBD treats are the perfect way of adding CBD into your routine without having to adjust your taste-buds to the slightly ‘grassy’ taste of CBD oil. Many people say CBD can taste a little like grass or earth, which is probably not your flavour of choice when it comes to an afternoon snack. While some people actively like the taste or can at least adjust to it, others who are keen to use CBD prefer to find an option that helps to mask the taste. And that’s where edibles come in. Edibles offer all the good stuff of CBD oil but in a way that’s easier to digest.

Benefits of CBD edibles

Some of the benefits of CBD include pain relief, mood improvement and better sleep so it’s no surprise that people are keen to try CBD for themselves. For many people though, the thought of using a CBD oil every day can be a little daunting which is why edibles are a great option, especially for those just starting out on their CBD journey. Edibles are a great way of adding CBD into a busy lifestyle. If you’re already snacking throughout the day then switching one of them up for a CBD alternative will make little impact to your waistline and pocket but could have major impacts on everything from your mood to your sleep pattern.

Normally, edible CBD products can take a little longer to fully ‘kick in’ meaning it may take longer for you to see an effect than if you were using an oil. However, at Calm Recovery, we use water soluble CBD in our edibles. This means that the CBD is absorbed much quicker than conventional oils.

This is all thanks to the CBD we use being ground to the size of nano particles, making it much easier for your body to handle and increasing your chances of absorbing 100% of it.

Not to mention, our water soluble CBD is completely tasteless unlike other forms of CBD, meaning it has zero impact on the overall taste of the edibles (or our coffee!).

Another perk of choosing CBD edibles is that they’re more discreet than other options such as oil. It’s unlikely that people will give you a second glance if you start digging into a cookie or some sweets on your commute home however if you start dropping CBD oil under your tongue then you might get some funny looks. CBD edibles slot perfectly into everyday life  meaning you won’t need to make any lifestyle changes if you want to start using them.

Where can you get CBD edibles?

Whilst CBD can be woody or nutty and people often have to wash it down with water once they’ve taken it, CBD edibles can be consumed just the same as you would consume their non-CBD counterparts. CBD edibles are also a great option to pair with a CBD coffee or CBD hot chocolate. We’re all partial to a coffee and cake every now and then so why not make your regular treat a little less naughty by swapping to CBD versions? Nothing compliments a biscuit better than a hot drink and you can find our full range of CBD infused hot drinks on the shop section of the site.

We’ll soon be launching a range of CBD edible products including cookies (Calm Cookies), brownies and chocolate meaning you can get your sugar fix as well as your dose of CBD. Our edibles taste exactly how you’d imagine cookies or brownies to taste (great!) but they also come with a stream of CBD benefits making them the perfect choice for an afternoon snack or post-dinner treat.
