What is CBD?
The cannabis plant has two main components, cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is what gets you high, while CBD is non-psychoactive. CBD can be extracted from both cannabis and hemp which are the same species of plant. The difference between the two is that to be designated as hemp, the plant must be comprised of less than 0.3 percent THC. In states where cannabis is legal, CBD can be derived from cannabis or hemp and is made from the whole plant. In states where it’s illegal, CBD oil must be made from hemp, which means only the stalks of the hemp plant. (Learn more about CBD Here)
¾ cup macadamia nuts (I used roasted and salted, but raw works too)
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon (120 mg) CBD oil (I used Herbal Hemp's CBD Oil)
⅓ cup almond flour
⅓ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
Place the macadamia nuts in your high-speed blender and process for a few minutes until you get a thick paste. The roasted and salted ones worked well because they easily turn into a paste.
Add in the melted coconut oil and CBD oil. Process a bit more until you get a thick but smooth macadamia nut butter. If needed, add a bit more coconut oil until you get the texture required.
In a large bowl, combine the macadamia nut butter, almond flour, unsweetened shredded coconut, ground cinnamon and vanilla extract and mix until you get a mixture that’s the texture of cookie dough.
Taste the dough and add a few drops of stevia or monk fruit if you want it sweeter.
Fold in the cacao nibs until they are evenly distributed.
Scoop one tablespoon of dough and roll it into a small ball between your palms. Repeat until all the mixture is used up. You should be able to get 10 CBD bliss balls.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week, or in the freezer for up to a month.
