Edibles are an increasingly popular way to consume cannabis because they’re both discreet and delicious. The pitfalls of edibles used to be the time and effort it took to make your own but these days, you can get them shipped right to your doorstep.
Gummies are a classic way to have edibles, but really the sky’s the limit for weed infusions. Sauces and oils are gaining popularity with chefs and consumers as a way to infuse dishes while preserving the delicate cannabinoids and terpenes.
Some sauces are infused with hemp while others say CBD, but it’s the same thing. Hemp plants don’t produce much THC, but they still have trichomes and certain varieties produce buds rich with cannabinoids like CBG and CBD, rather than THC. Some sauces feature the earthy taste of cannabis while others seek to cover it with bold flavors but either way, they make infusing your meals quick and easy.
If you’re looking to expand your edible options, reach for a jar of one of these infused sauces or oils. All products mentioned ship to 50 US states.
6 CBD-infused sauces for 2023
Products: BBQ & hot sauces
Dosage: 250 mg per bottle
Euphoria Eats doesn’t just make hemp-infused sauces, this is a culinary experience that helps you feel good. Owner and chef W. Pierre Davis has been passionate about cooking since college, and got back into the culinary arts until after serving in the Iraq War. While struggling to acclimatize back to civilian life, he discovered the benefits of CBD and hemp oil.
Chef Davis made it his goal to create a line of delicious sauces that are readily available to anyone who wants to benefit from hemp oil. Try the sweet bayou glaze BBQ, the kicking Louisiana heat hot sauce, or the award-winning spicy New Orleans Nights BBQ, all with 250 mg of full spectrum hemp extract.
Products: Olive oils
Dosage: 125 mg per bottle
Olive oil is a staple in most home cooks’ kitchens and for good reason – it’s silky, mild, and adds a delicious flavor to anything it touches. So it only makes sense to kick this oil up a notch with CBD infusion and Pot d’Huile’s hemp-infused olive oil does just that. Don’t save this bottle for special occasions – this oil is meant for everyday drizzling. As long as you keep the oil below 356F to avoid burning off the cannabinoids, you can use this liquid gold with any dish you can dream of. It is also a great option for anyone who is going keto and looking for infused, healthy omega-3 rich oils.
Product: Chili oil
Dosage: 120 mg per jar
The smooth texture of the oil, the crunch of the crispy chilis, and the kick of a spice level that’s just right are the trademarks of a good chili crisp oil. But the team at Loud Grandma took it to another level by using an infused CBD olive oil base. This oil combines chilis with Szechuan peppercorn, garlic, onion, and fermented black soybeans for an irresistible flavor combination. But it’s not too hot – this chili oil is best described as an “approachable heat level,” making it perfect for spooning over leftovers or your morning eggs.
Products: Hot sauce
Dosage: 300 mg per bottle
Like it hot? Then you’ll love this bright pink hot sauce from Hot Sloth. But don’t let appearances fool you – this eye-catching sauce isn’t a one-note wonder. The heat builds on you, hidden behind a lightly fermented and slightly funky plum and umami base. Infused with CBD olive oil and dragonfruit, this sauce is smooth and spicy with a surprisingly fruity note.
Product: Sesame oil
Dosage: 250 mg per bottle
If you have a dish that calls for the toasted nuttiness of sesame oil and you still want a CBD boost, look no further than this infused oil from Sessy. Sessy blends cold-pressed toasted sesame oil with the earthy flavors of CBD for an oil you can’t get enough of. A staple ingredient of many Asian dishes, sesame oil is a delicious alternative source of unsaturated fats, which can help the CBD absorb and also support your endocannabinoid system.
Products: BBQ sauces
Dosage: 100 mg per bottle
Local Smoke BBQ knows a thing or two about making delicious sauces. This competition team-turned-restaurateurs has won 1st place in national competitions for their ribs and brisket, and now they make infused versions of their sauces. Try the buffalo sauce, sweet BBQ, Carolina-style BBQ, or spicy BBQ infused with 100 mg of CBD oil for a flavor combination that thrills your taste buds and your endocannabinoid system. All of the sauces are gluten and MSG-free.
