Tips on Cooking with Hemp While Quarantining
Slowly, but surely, people around the country are finding their inner chef during this period of quarantine. Instead of going out to eat or ordering in, men and women are stocking up food supplies from grocery stores to prepare meals for themselves at home all week long. While isolated at home, people are looking for ways to stay busy and better themselves. They are developing ways to keep business going from home, working out at home to improve their physical conditioning and blowing the dust off of their stoves. Continued Hemp distribution is considered an essential business in many states and so people are looking to take advantage of its comforts during this these time. Cooking with Hemp while quarantining can be a fun and educational way to incorporate it into our lives.
Affordable Hemp edibles are not difficult to find. If you want to buy Hemp cookies or Hemp gummy bears, they are available and should be reasonably priced. However, one of the great things about Hemp is that there are many ways to ingest it, as opposed to adding it to mundane routines. Sure, having Hemp gummies and Hemp baked goods ready to go is great, but why not consider using a Hemp oil when making dinner? A pure unflavored Hemp oil can be used in almost any meal and you can measure out dosages with the 1 ml dropper that comes with the bottle. Sugar and Kush offers tincture bottles with concentrations of Hemp 3000mg, Hemp 1000mg and Hemp 500mg.
Depending on the meal that you are whipping up, there are also flavored Hemp oils you can choose from. Many people like to take flavored Hemp tinctures and drip them right under their tongue, and in order for that to be appealing Sugar and Kush has made fun flavors.
- Strawberry Hemp Oil
- Vanilla Hemp Oil
- Cotton Candy Hemp Oil
- Orange Creamsicle Hemp Oil
- Bubble Gum Hemp Oil
- Hazelnut Hemp Oil
All of these Hemp oils are tested by third party Hemp labs with ISO 17025 accreditation and you can see all of the certificates of analysis on the Sugar and Kush Hemp Lab Reports page. You can consider cooking with these oils, but they are sweet to the taste and go best in meals that include fruit, yogurt or some other sweet dish. Sugar and Kush only offers diet Hemp products. While the oils have tremendous flavor, they are made with a monk fruit sweetener to make sure they are all low-calorie Hemp products. For the most part, you will likely just want to drip your Hemp dosage on top of your prepared dish when using flavored Hemp tinctures on food.
The most versatile Hemp oil for cooking though is a pure unflavored Hemp tincture, which is one of Sugar and Kush’s top selling items. Made with a coconut derived MCT oil and a pure Hemp isolate, there is very little taste to the oil at all. Therefore, if you are making marinara sauce full of pungent robust spices like garlic, the unflavored tincture works great. I don’t think you want a hint of strawberry flavor in your tomato sauce. Use the pure Hemp tincture in a stroganoff recipe or in any protein based dish like fish, steak or chicken. When you are done eating, you and the family can kick your feet up and relax while you watch your favorite streaming show. Stay safe and healthy everyone.
