Ever finished up with your dry herb and binned it? Did you know you can actually get a little more life out of that AVB (Already vaped bud)? We’ve been trying out different recipes to make this AVB taste incredible. This week we are showing you how to make CBD cupcakes. 

How long will eating CBD take to get in my system?

Vaping CBD or using the tincture drops is one of the fastest ways to get CBD into your system. Where as eating CBD takes between 30 minutes and 2 hours to have an effect. However, it is said to last that little bit longer. When you eat CBD you need to be aware of how high the dose is that you are using. Remember that if you don't feel effects within this timeframe that's no reason to demolish the whole tray of cakes! Give it time to work its magic.

What will eating CBD cupcakes help with?

CBD has been known to help with a number of different conditions and ailments. These include back pain, inflammation, anxiety, sleep disorders, stress, aches and more. Eating CBD is an enjoyable and delicious way to reap the benefits. View a longer list of what CBD helps with in our blog.


For the cupcakes
175g self raising flour
175g butter
175g caster sugar
3 eggs
½ teaspoon baking powder

For the topping
350g icing sugar
175g butter
3 teaspoons of milk as required
2g of AVB (already vaped bud)


Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Weigh and sift the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. This includes the sugar, flour and baking powder.

Add the butter to the mixing bowl and stir until it is all mixed in with the dry ingredients.

Crack the eggs into the bowl and whisk until the mixture is light and pale in colour. Either using a hand or an electric whisk.

Add the cupcake batter to the cupcake cases. Bake them until a knife comes out clean when you poke them, which should be around 20-25 minutes.

While the cupcakes are cooking up a storm in the oven, it is time to make the CBD topping. In a new bowl mix together the ingredients for the topping, including the ABV and stir until pale and fluffy.

Once the cupcakes have cooled it is time to add the topping. Be generous, no one likes a cupcake that is tight on toppings!
