    CBD Sprouted Hummus Recipe

    CBD can be cooked with various dishes such as brownies, cakes, cookies, and several humus recipes. Cannabidiol (CBD) has exploded in popularity worldwide in only a few years. CBD is sold and used to treat many medical illnesses and lifestyle disorders after being identified as successful self-medication for Dravet syndrome in children. The cannabinoid CBD, a non-psychoactive isomer of the more well-known tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is accessible in various forms, the most well-known of which is CBD oil. The great news about edible CBD oil is that it provides a long-term source of CBD to the body, its effect lasting up to eleven hours after being ingested. Below are a few tips and recipes to get one started on CBD with sprouted hummus.

    Why Sprout and Cook Chickpeas

    At first, sprouting can be frightening, but getting the hang of it can be enjoyable. Watching a seed, grain, or bean come to life is interesting, but sprouting also improves the nutritional value of food through several critical procedures. Like all legumes, chickpeas include the nutritional compound phytate and enzyme inhibitors. Das, Sharma & Sarkar (2022) noted that conventional and emerging processing techniques for the post-harvest reduction of antinutrients in edible legumes. Applied Food Research, 100112. Soaking, sprouting, or even just plain soaking of grains can improve the nutritional profile of chickpeas. Phytates bind minerals and make them difficult to absorb, while enzyme inhibitors may make it difficult to digest food and absorb protein. Even though sprouting is very good at lowering these antinutrients, it is insufficient. The best way to increase the availability of nutrients is to cook chickpeas after sprouting them before using them to make hummus or other dishes. Making raw sprouted hummus is often a bad idea because of this as well. Even better than cooking on the stove, pressure cooking chickpeas in your Instant Pot or any pressure cooker greatly reduce toxic chemicals.

    How To Make Sprouted Hummus

    Pozhitkova (2020) stated that even though it requires a few more steps, making sprouted hummus is a straightforward procedure. Chickpeas are first soaked in warm water, which is then drained. After that, one has to repeat the process until they germinate. One must rinse and drain them daily to prevent a bad odor or fermenting. The chickpeas are then cooked on the stove, ideally in a pressure cooker, then puréed with garlic, tahini, extra virgin olive oil, and a squeeze of lemon.

    CBD Infused Hummus Recipe

    You are dealing with a traditional vegan dish hummus that most people adore regardless of their dietary preferences. Nobody should make a big deal out of a novel flavor with its therapeutic benefits because they have probably seen lots of variations on the traditional recipe, such as those that are particularly spicy, have roasted red peppers, or have garlic as other spices added. For the creamiest results, it is advised that one should use a small blender. Also, remember that one may control the consistency of the hummus recipe; some people prefer it thicker than others and can easily control that element by adjusting the amount of olive oil used in the version. The hummus will start to lose moisture after a few days of refrigeration. Still, it is easily restored by adding a little more olive oil and manually stirring it into the remaining hummus spread until it reaches the desired consistency.


    • Half a cup of dry peas or one can of fifteen ounces chickpeas.
    • One tablespoon of salt
    • One squeezed lemon
    • One teaspoon of ground cumin
    • Two tablespoons of tahini
    • One teaspoon of decarboxylated kief
    • Three tablespoons of CBD-infused olive oil.


    According to Moarrefzadeh et al. (2021), removing the skin from the chickpeas will have a smoother and creamier texture regardless of whether you use handmade or store-bought chickpeas. Most skins can be removed more quickly by sandwiching a handful of chickpeas between two damp paper towels and gently rolling the top towel back and forth; however, caution is exercised to avoid crushing the beans.

    • Place the rinsed and skinned chickpeas into a small blender and fill up three-quarters of the container.
    • Sprinkle some of the salt, garlic, and cumin over the top of the chickpeas, and pour the lemon juice over the top to soak up every ingredient in the blender.
    • Scoop a spoonful of tahini and add it to the mixture.
    • Whisk together the kief and olive oil in a small bowl until it gains a smooth consistency. Pour the mixture into the blender and allow it to soak everything up.
    • Once all the ingredients are in the bowl, start with a high-speed blend watching out for the consistency of the hummus, and you can add more ingredients to prevent it from thinning out.
    • The unblended leftovers of the garbanzo beans should no longer attach to the sides of the blender. Still, they should be slowly swirling towards the center and being drawn down to the blade after approximately a minute. At this point, reduce the speed to low. It is also a great moment to evaluate your hummus's consistency; if it's too thick, add squirts of olive oil, let it absorb, and then observe the texture change for around 15 seconds. Keep in mind that while you can always thin out your hummus, you cannot thicken it again without including unneeded additional ingredients.
    • Once satisfied with the consistency of your hummus, you can transfer it to a serving dish ready to be served.

    NB: You are welcome to change the proportions of some of the components in this recipe to suit your tastes. For sharper, more distinct flavors, you may, for example, double the garlic or use more, up the tahini and the cumin. To prevent too much moisture to your dish, try adding some lemon peel zest if you want more lemon taste. Of course, you can always add pepper and other flavorful spices while blended ingredients.


    CBD sprouted hummus is a relatively simple dish to prepare with several ingredients. However, always keep in mind the amount of CBD oil you use. Also, gauge the potency and the number of serving per person, as this will help you determine an appropriate dosage.
