Why Turmeric + Black Pepper?

Get your orange hues in this holiday season, and top it off with a pinch of black pepper. Turmeric is a centuries-old favorite to help your body maintain healthy inflammation levels. The active compound, curcumin, gives turmeric its orangey-yellow hue and is rich with healthy antioxidants. 

Black pepper helps your body to better absorb turmeric, similar to how adding MCT Coconut Oil to our tinctures help with CBD absorption. Plus, the two tango well together when it comes to powerful, earthy taste. To make the turmeric sweet potato mash, you’ll need the following ingredients:

 

Ingredients:

4 sweet potatoes, washed, peeled & cubed

1 pre-measured dose of Black Pepper Turmeric

1 tsp coconut oil

3 garlic cloves, minced

½ cup low-sodium vegetable broth

Pinch of sea salt

Pinch of black pepper

 

Directions:

  1. Fill a large pot with water, adding a steamer basket on top.
  2. Place your peeled & cubed sweet potatoes in the steamer basket, and add the lid to your pot.
  3. Steam potatoes for 15-20 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are very soft.
  4. Place prepared sweet potatoes into a high-speed blender adding remaining ingredients in slowly, starting with the vegetable broth and CBD oil. 
  5. Blend until all ingredients are fully incorporated, and spoon your mixture into a bowl. Serve immediately.

 

F.A.Q.

Will my guests taste the CBD oil in this recipe?

Probably not. Black Pepper Turmeric tincture offers a very mild flavor profile, which would only complement the turmeric and black pepper used in this recipe.

How much CBD is in the recipe?

One pre-measured dose of our Black Pepper Turmeric tincture contains 25mg of CBD (per entire recipe here).

Can Fido have some?

For general health and safety, we recommend limiting the amount of human food you serve to your pets, but our Black Pepper Turmeric CBD tincture is pet-friendly, as both black pepper and turmeric have been shown safe for use when administering them in small amounts. Consider this tincture to help soothe your pet's sore joints and muscles from exercise-induced inflammation and pain. 

Will this Sweet Potato CBD Mash get any of my guests high?

The CBD molecule does not produce any psychoactive effects because it is so low in THC, the “high” molecule. The only euphoria you might feel would come from the harmonizing properties of our products, and the bliss from consuming this sweet + savory combo.
