This post is a part of our recipe series. We’ve partnered with talented bakers, chefs, and bartenders to bring you unique and adventurous CBD oil recipes you can make at home. This time around, we are excited to share a recipe for orange chai CBD cookies.

Today we have dessert on the menu in the form of CBD cookies: Orange Chai Snickerdoodles infused with Populum's Full-Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil. We’re pretty sure that CBD cookies aren’t a recommended breakfast item, but these cookies taste so much like an orange cinnamon roll, we may or may not be sneaking them for breakfast and dessert.

For this recipe, we partnered with Kaitlan, a baker based in Omaha, who specializes in making cookies, as well as other baked goods out of her home in Dundee. “These CBD cookies will remind you almost too much of an orange cinnamon roll, but that’s definitely not a bad thing,” she says. We’ll warn you that these are so good, you might want to eat more than one, so if you have a sweet tooth and think you’ll be munching on a few cookies throughout the day, you may want to use Populum’s Basic 250 Hemp Oil instead of our Signature 500 Hemp Oil.
