CBD-Laced Cheesecake for Late Holiday Nights

What is more holiday-esque than pumpkin pie and gingerbread? How about pumpkin cheesecake with a gingerbread crust? Well, we’ve got it for you! On top of that, who says that dessert can’t be a health food? We’ve turned this Golden Girls classic into a treat even the strictest of coaches would let you get away with – how? With the addition of CBD!

Cooking with CBD Tip:
Generally, when working with a recipe (not a drink) it is best to add CBD to the vegetables as a drizzle or marinade, allowing the vegetables to soak in the CBD. As we’ve talked about above, this will insulate the CBD from the high temperatures associated with cooking.
