Kat has been writing about veganism, environment, and sustainability for five years. Their interests include over-analyzing the various socioeconomic forms of oppression, how that overlaps with veganism, and how the media in all of its forms reflects the current culture.

For many, the holiday season is about more than just food – it’s also about spending quality time with friends and family. But it can also be pretty stressful, so why not help make spirits bright with some homemade vegan treats infused with CBD?

What is CBD?

CBD – short for cannabidiol – is a non-psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant, typically found in oil form. While it doesn’t have the “heightening” effect of the THC found in the whole plant, CBD research has revealed that the oil can benefit users both physically and mentally. It could potentially be used as a treatment for a number of conditions including arthritis, PTSD, depression, epilepsy, schizophrenia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and chronic pain. Researchers are also looking into CBD’s anti-cancer properties.

Those who use CBD oil say that it also has an overall relaxing effect – perfect for the sometimes stressful holiday season. In contrast to THC, CBD is legal in the UK, Canada, and in the majority of the US, meaning finding a bottle of oil to cook with should be easy for most.
