One of the best recipes we have is overnight oats infused with CBD oil and blueberries, a sweet snack with even sweeter health benefits from the CBD and antioxidant qualities of the fruit. Here’s what you’ll need to whip up this healthy grub:

It’s an ideal snack for busy individuals who are always on the go. All you need is to add one cup of serving (150 grams) of traditional, rolled oats into a bowl and cover it with your choice of milk. Simply combine the oats with your preferred milk, cover, and let sit overnight. When you wake up, mix in one serving of your tincture, then top with blueberries
2. Chicken Salad with CBD-Infused Lemon Dressing
The middle of the day can be a tiring turning point for many people, which is why lunch is also an important time for those hungry for a lip-smacking pick-me-up. Lunch recipes like the chicken salad with CBD-infused lemon dressing can be the ideal booster as it can replenish your energy and enhance your focus for the remainder of the day.
With that in mind, you’ll need the following ingredients to create the zesty and filling dish:
- 2 tbsp of olive oil
- 4 skinless, boneless, sliced chicken breasts, or chicken substitute
For the salad and dressing:
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 ½ lemon, zest then juiced
- 1/4 cup mayonaise, or mayo substitute
- 2 tsp raw honey
- 1 finely sliced ripe avocado
- ½ sliced cucumber
- Sliced cherry tomatoes
- finely sliced radishes

This is a quick but fulfilling dish to make, which you can start on by rubbing two tablespoons of olive oil over your chicken slices. Season it with salt and black pepper before frying it on a pan over medium heat for ten minutes. Turn it regularly until each piece has golden streaks.
Once the chicken is done, set it aside and begin to mix your CBD-infused lemon dressing.
Start by adding Dijon mustard, honey, and lemon juice in a small mixing bowl. Sprinkle lemon zest then add to the quarter cup of mayonnaise. Mix well. Then add your CBD oil and mix again until well blended.
Mix your salad by using your favorite greens, sliced cucumber, radishes, cherry tomatoes, and avocado, or any other toppings you would like. Top with chicken and dressing, and enjoy!
