Also, due to the fact that baking with CBD is not too complicated, it is recommended for both CBD beginners and CBD experts.

Will CBD Brownies Make you High?
Although CBD brownies may sound incredibly similar to pot brownies, they're not. Unlike THC, CBD is 100% non-psychoactive. It does not negatively impact your mind or mental processes and will not cause users to feel strange, or 'high’.
It is a very common misconception about CBD, that because it comes from the same plants as THC, it possesses the same psychoactive effects. However, this is completely untrue. Users can enjoy CBD without feeling any mind-altering effects or feeling high. In fact, CBD is the best way to enjoy the benefits of cannabinoids without the intoxicating effects of THC.
So no, CBD brownies do not make you high and there are actually a wide variety of benefits that CBD offers when ingested orally. When CBD is ingested rather than taken topically or vaping it through the lungs, it may take longer to enjoy its benefits as it will need to be metabolised. However, once it is metabolised it stays within the body for a longer period of time.

What you're Going to Need
- 9×9 Inch (23x23 cm) Square Pan

- ½ Cup of Chocolate Chips
- ¾ Cup of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1 Cup of All-Purpose or Plain Flour

To get started on your Mouthwatering CBD brownies you:
- Preheat your oven at 180°C/350°F/Gas 4.
- Take your 9x9 inch (23x23 cm) square pan, and lightly grease with cooking spray. Cut a square of baking/parchment paper to be a bit bigger than your tin (around 27cm/11in). Cut diagonally a small snip (approx. 5cm/2in) from the corners toward the centre. Push the paper into the tin and ease the paper into the corners neatly - they will overlap slightly. Trim if needed.
- Using a large mixing bowl, mix together your melted butter, vegetable oil, CBD Oil and sugar. Mix these ingredients thoroughly, then add in 3 eggs, vanilla extract, and beat for 1 minute.
- In a separate mixing bowl, add in all of your dry ingredients, including cocoa powder, all-purpose flour and salt.
- Slowly pour in the already mixed liquid and sugar ingredients (butter, vegetable oil, CBD Oil, Sugar, 3 eggs and vanilla extract) in with the dry ingredients. Gently fold the mixture with a large spoon until thoroughly combined.
- Gently fold in the chocolate chips. Be sure to not stir the mixture too much.
- Pour the batter into your pan (make sure the mixture is level and even in the baking pan).
- Bake your delicious CBD brownies for 25 to 30 minutes and test with a toothpick to check if they're perfectly baked. Wait about 15 minutes for your brownies to cool, slice, serve and enjoy!
