Christmas is only a few weeks away and as the anticipation mounts for the presents, so too does the excitement surrounding the food! Christmas dinner is one of the fews times a year we give ourselves permission to indulge in the things we know we shouldn't eat.
When gathering with your family for the feast of the year to indulge in your christmas favorites, potatoes are always high on the list of christmas staples.
Rich and creamy mash potatoes are the perfect accompaniment to the main course, and by adding CBD this year they’ll be sure to be extra special.
CBD loves to be paired with foods high in fats, usually we recommend healthy fats, but as it's Christmas why not try our rich and creamy CBD mash potato recipe!
4 lb. potatoes
A pinch of Himalayan rock salt
2 cups of milk or a non- dairy milk your choice (we recommend hemp milk or almond milk)
5 tbsp. Butter or Vegan alternative
4 crushed garlic cloves
A few drops of Enodca 3% CBD RAW Hemp oil drops
4 small sprigs fresh rosemary
Generous serving of cracked black pepper
Cheese of your choice (optional)

- Peel and dice potatoes and put in a large pot with a pinch of salt, add cold water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until just tender, around 20 to 25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place the butter or vegan alternative in a small saucepan and melt on a low heat. Once at least half the butter in the saucepan has melted, add 4-5 drops of Enodca 3% CBD RAW Hemp oil drops and mix. Then add your milk, garlic, rosemary and pepper in a small saucepan and stir.
It is advised to cook with CBD oil at lower temperatures to preserve the potency of the CBD: between 160 degrees F (71.1 degrees C) to 185 degrees F (85 degrees C). As long as you don't use really high temperatures, the CBD oil will keep its potency.
3. Reduce the heat for 3 minutes before taking off the heat and letting the flavors steep while the potatoes finish cooking. Once the potatoes have cooked to your liking, drain them and return them to the pot.
- Add the CBD mixture and a pinch of salt to the drained potatoes and mash. At this point, you can add in a cheese of your choice (we love parmesan or a nice cheddar) but you could also add some olive oil to make it extra creamy or just leave it as it!
The perfect CBD side dish this Christmas!
