Sweets by CHLOE is launching a limited-edition vegan chocolate brownie formulated with CBD oil, if you’re looking for a more ‘uplifting’ sweet snack.
And lucky for you, they’ve shared their decadent recipe.
CBD oil, which is legal in many states and made after the compound cannabidiol extracted from cannabis, may help to relieve chronic pain and anxiety, although more research is needed on its uses. Not to be confused with tetra-hydrocannabinol (THC) in marijuana, CBD oil doesn’t actually get you ‘high’, but can help you feel more relaxed and calm – even more than you would be enjoying a delicious vegan brownie, too.
The recipe below is made with The Daily Hit from CAP Beauty (the wellness brand partnered with Sweets by CHLOE to create the chocolatey treat), though the CBD oil brands can be changed with your preference. But if you’re in New York City, you can always drop by Sweets by CHLOE’s Bleecker Street location to pick up some brownies for yourself.
