You’re probably wondering… why would you add CBD to avocado toast? Let’s see what the taste of CBD avocado toast, and why we should try this new food.
Apart from it being delicious and an awesome way to take CBD, there’s also some scientific justification – which we’ll get to later.
A couple of years ago, avocado toast hit the mainstream when an Australian interview with a millionaire went viral. The interviewee claimed that young people couldn’t afford houses because they spend all their money on ‘smashed avocado with crumbled feta on five-grain toasted bread at $22 a pop.’
The offhand comment gave birth to endless memes poking fun at avocado-loving millennials (who predictably, made most of them) and skyrocketed the popularity of the breakfast dish.
Avocado toast is not only trendy and ‘instagrammable’, it’s indulgent yet healthy, versatile and vegan-friendly.
The science behind CBD Avocado Toast
You can add CBD oil to pretty much any food and often, it works pretty well. It’s a great way to mix-up your CBD dosing and to add therapeutic benefits to your meals.
But science suggests that by taking CBD with foods high in fat, absorption is greatly increased – meaning more CBD gets into the bloodstream and is available to interact with the endocannabinoid system.
And although avocados are high in fat, it’s monosaturated fat (a ‘good’ fat) that helps lower bad cholesterol.
Now, don’t go out and spend 22 bucks, stay home and make your own avocado toast with a CBD twist!
How to make CBD Avocado Toast?
What you’ll need for one serving:
- 1 thick slice of bread (I like whole-grain)
- ½ a ripe avocado (soft, but not mushy)
- Pinch of sea salt
- High-quality, organic CBD Oil
What you’ll need to do:
Toast your bread to how you like it.
Carefully slice and pit your avocado. Scoop out one side into a bowl and add a pinch of salt.
Add a drop or two of CBD oil and mash until creamy (or a little chunky if you prefer.)
Spread over toast and enjoy 😋
This a basic version, but you can easily add more ingredients like egg, salmon, feta cheese, or cherry tomatoes. And if you like a little spice, add chili flakes, hot sauce, or jalapenos!
