Kitchen Tips
This recipe yields four cookies, each with about 5 mg of CBD.

The cookies are meant to be consumed almost immediately. (If you plan on storing cookies, place them in resealable bags and clearly label your treats. Keep them out of reach of children and pets.)

CBD isn’t the only relaxing ingredient in these cookies…
Potassium in pumpkin seeds helps reduce stress.
Flaxseeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, which studies show improve the symptoms of depression.
Brazil nuts are high in selenium, associated with a decrease in anxiety.
Compounds in dark chocolate mimic the blissful, non-intoxicating buzz of cannabis.
Egg yolks contain tryptophan and tyrosine, which may reduce stress.

Substitution Tip
Substitute 20 mg CBD oil with a total of 4 mg THC oil, if desired. This will yield four cookies, each with about 1 mg of THC. Experienced users can mix and match the proportions of CBD and THC oils.
