All good guacamole beings with good avocado.  Avocados are rich in vitamins & minerals (20+), fatty acids and folate, giving the fruit a claim to superfood power.  The most popular kind of avocado that most of us see at the grocery store or farmers market is the Hass avocado aka the “alligator pear.”  

We’re not the only ones who are crazed about CBD guac, there are dozens of recipes out there that demonstrate just how special this combo is.  While CBD doesn’t necessarily bring out any more “healthiness” in avocados, the two are a powerful combination. Avocados contain 20 different vitamins and minerals, are fiber-rich, and promote healthy digestion, lower cholesterol, proper blood sugar levels and good gut bacteria. They are higher in potassium than bananas and high in vitamin K.

If you don’t know what’s good about CBD, clearly you haven’t been reading our blog posts!  CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, it can help you quit smoking or drugs, it can treat epilepsy, and more!  


A guacamole appetizer or side dish fits for parties or homemade snacks, so here is our CBD edition:

Ingredients:

  • 3 avocados: peeled, pitted & smashed
  • 1 lime: juiced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup of onion (white, yellow or red): diced
  • 4 tablespoons of fresh cilantro: chopped
  • 4-5 cherry tomatoes: diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic: minced
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 dropper of cbd oil


Instructions:

In a medium sized bowl, mash up the avocados, lime juice & salt.  Proceed to incorporate the onion, cilantro, CBD Oil, tomatoes and garlic.  Finish by stirring in the cayenne pepper.

The secret to getting full flavor out of your guac is to let it sit in the fridge for an hour; although, you can serve it immediately.
