It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Yep, the holiday season is upon us! We understand this year might look different for your household than years past. With all the craziness of 2020, one thing’s for sure…we all need an emotional break. That’s why we’ve made the Ultimate Guide to CBD During the Holidays, from cooking and cocktail-mixing to gift-giving and total relaxation. Let’s get our “zen” on!
Holiday Cooking with CBD
Olive Oil: Whenever a recipe calls for olive oil this holiday season, turn to our CBD-infused olive oil! It has a mellow flavor while being subtly fruity in its aroma. The best part? It’s packed with CBD and can be used with practically anything. All you need is 1 tablespoon!
Cooking with Coconut: Versatile. Nutritious. Packed with CBD. If you’re cooking or baking this holiday season, our coconut oil should be in the recipe. We’ve used this oil many times with our hemp brownies—a definite holiday favorite that’ll satisfy your sweet tooth—but because it’s so versatile, you can add a tablespoon to just about any dish!
Try These CBD Cocktails
Everyone deserves a little cocktail this year. And adding CBD to the mix? One word: YUM! No matter what your go-to cocktail is this holiday season, you can’t go wrong with adding a drop or two of our CBD healing tincture. You’ll be feeling like an elevated version of yourself in no time.
Here are two cocktail recipes we think are worth trying this year. Make sure to snap a photo and tag us on social media if you decide to make one!
Jenny’s Perfect Fall Fix
- 4 cups organic (no sugar added) cranberry juice
- 1 orange, juiced
- 1/2 Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into slices
- 1 teaspoon whole cloves
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 piece fresh ginger cut the size of a penny that’s 1/4 inch thick
- 1 empty tea bag or cheesecloth
- orange slices, rosemary sprigs, and cinnamon stick for garnish
- 4 Full droppers of Jenny’s CBD Healing Tincture
Place ginger, cinnamon sticks, and cloves into a tea bag and pull the drawstring tight. You can also tie spices in cheesecloth if you do not have a teabag.
Pour 4 cups cranberry juice into a saucepan. Place a tea bag of spices, orange juice, and apple slices in the pan.
Simmer over low heat for one hour. Add 4 full droppers of Jenny’s CBD Healing tincture after removing from heat and before chilling.
Remove the teabag of spices. Chill to serve cold over ice or serve immediately if you would like it warm.
Garnish a cold drink with an orange slice and a sprig of rosemary. Garnish a warm drink with a cinnamon stick.

- 1 cup orange juice
- 5 cups sparkling water
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- Rosemary sprigs
- 3 Apples
- 1 Orange
- 6 Full droppers of Jenny’s CBD healing tincture
In a tall pitcher mix the apple cider with the orange juice and lemonade. Set aside.
Cut the apples and the oranges and add them to the pitcher.
Mix in the maple syrup, Jenny’s CBD healing tincture, and add the rosemary sprigs.

The longer you keep the punch in the fridge the bigger the punch of flavor. You can make it overnight to serve in the afternoon. You can also add 2 cinnamon sticks to make it spicier. Makes about (30) 4oz servings.
Skipping on the booze this year? That’s alright! You can also add the CBD healing tincture to coffee, smoothies, teas, or water.
Note: even though the holidays are stressful, please be mindful of how much you’re consuming.

Chill Out with CBD
“‘Tis the season to be jolly,” right? Well, no matter what the song says, there’s no doubt the holidays can leave you feeling more stressed than before. That’s where CBD can help.
One of the best ways to let your body fully relax this year is taking a warm bath. It’s a time to zone out, forget all the stressors in your life, and be one with yourself. Be sure to check out our other blog on hemp baths to learn how to make the most of your time in the tub.
