Are you ready for some special brownies??
Now these brownies certainly are special, but not in the way you might be thinking when you hear CBD. Cannabidiol, known as CBD, is one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD is not THC and CBD products do not contain THC. And yes, CBD is legal to purchase.
So what are the reasons to try CDB??
Benefits of CBD Use
CBD is becoming more and more popular as a natural way to help with various ailments. And there are in fact scientific studies out there that confirm it could actually help! And it can do so without all of the side effects that come along with pharmaceutical drugs. Here are some things it may help with:
- Pain relief – CBD can help manage chronic pain through reducing inflammation, interacting with neurotransmitters, and working with the body’s endocannabinoid system
- Reduction of anxiety and depression without having to take antidepressants
- Help with insomnia
- Alleviate cancer related symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and pain.

UnCanny Water Soluble CBD
I didn’t use CBD oil in this recipe, which is probably most of the CBD products you see on the market. Instead I used UnCanny’s Water Soluble CBD powder.
Why water soluble? UnCanny has transformed their cbd into a powder that is water soluble because of the bioavailability of this type of product. Oils may only be about 20% absorbed within the gastrointestinal tract whereas this powder has closer to a 90-100% absorption rate. This means more bang for you buck! Both figuratively and literally.
UnCanny’s cbd is also full spectrum. What does this mean? It retains a lot of great elements that are naturally present in hemp extracts, including terpenes, flavonoids, and polyphenols. When these compounds work together they have a stronger impact than when stand-alone. For reference when shopping, the opposite of a full spectrum cbd is an isolate.
UnCanny also gets their products tested by third parties. This type of independent verification is always important when looking for a company you want to trust.
These brownies are special beyond their CBD. Because they are good for you! First of all, they are vegan. Plus the batter is made with zucchini and the frosting is made with sweet potato. There is no oil or butter in this recipe, and it is also refined sugar free. But trust me, when you taste them, you will never believe any of that!
The zucchini makes the brownie super moist, and the sweet potato makes the frosting extra creamy. We naturally sweeten this recipe with apple sauce, and use better sweetener options like agave (which you can always sub for maple syrup or a sweetener you prefer!). Taste is not compromised – and don’t take my word for it, make them and see for yourself! Plus the recipe is super easy to follow. Enjoy!Print
