Mince pies with cannabis oil are on their way to your Christmas table thanks to a former Great British Bake Off star. Show contestant Howard Middleton has masterminded what he believes is the first-ever mince pie recipe with CBD oil baked in. And it’s suitable for all adults, as it’s gluten-free and vegan friendly. The baker has combined with leading CBD retailer ActivelyCBD.com to offer a twist on a well-loved Christmas treat, reports Birmingham Live. And it’s really a ‘green’ Christmas, for home bakers whipping up Howard’s frangipane-topped festive creation which calls for hemp flour and hemp oil – as well as a frosting topping which includes an optional 10mg of CBD oil from leading online CBD retailer ActivelyCBD.com. On season four of Bake Off in 2013, Howard Middleton was praised for pushing boundaries as he introduced hemp flour to the hallowed tent, to the surprise of national treasure Mary Berry. He now becomes the first former show contestant to include CBD oil in an ingredients list, with his mince pies recipe published online by ActivelyCBD.com today. A video of Howard demonstrating how to cook the mince pies is on Actively CBD YouTube. Howard said: “I love to experiment with my baking to cater for those with intolerances and people who like to try alternative ingredients and new flavours. “With so much time spent inside this year, home-baking has been on the rise and I hope people will give my tasty twist on a mince pie recipe a trial in their kitchens. “The recipe calls for hemp flour, coconut flour plus hemp oil and water from a can of chickpeas so your gluten-free and vegan friends can enjoy it, too. “I like to show that it’s possible for ingredients to be inclusive and delicious. For adults who want to include CBD oil, there is an optional measure of 10mg for each pie.” A reported 6 million adults in the UK have tried CBD, which is a legal food supplement in the UK. CBD which stands for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring, legally-produced oil derived from hemp plants. ActivelyCBD.com supplies a large range of the best edible CBD products available in the UK including oils, drinks and chocolates. Former chef and Actively CBD Wholesale Manager Jonathan Thorpe said: “Howard is a hero of ours thanks to his attitude in the kitchen, working with a variety of different ingredients to suit individuals’ dietary requirements and tastes. “The mince pie recipe he has created is simply show stopping – and your gluten-free and vegan friends can enjoy them too. “For adults who want to add CBD Oil to their mince pies, we supply high-quality products to consumers in the UK. “Each product available at ActivelyCBD.com is verified in independent labs and subject to full spectrum analysis to verify CBD content.” Products are for sale to age-verified customers over 18 in the UK.
