Why would KetoBakes create Hemp Infused Brownies?

The first thought… why not? If you are old enough to remember the 70’s you will know that ‘enhanced’ brownies are nothing new. But that was 5 decades ago and our understanding and the stigma of this amazing product has changed drastically. I’ll admit it, I was raised with an understanding that anything associated with ‘pot’ was bad. So as Hemp based products began to show up a few years ago, I was a complete pessimist and had no interest in it. And honestly, I thought it was probably all illegal. It wasn’t until the past year or so I began to get a better understanding of CBD and hemp infused products.

The real reason we decided to create a CBD Brownie, was based out of a desire to find a solution to some of the challenges our family has been dealing with for a number of years. We are blessed with 6 amazing kids; the first two are biological and the next 4 are adopted. In the mix we got some special kids, including some with significant challenges. From autism to anxiety, diabetes to dyslexia, seizures to significant learning disabilities, our house is full of a LOT of LOVE and quite a bit of chaos at times. Switching our household over to a keto lifestyle years ago has helped significantly and we saw a marked improvement in some of these issues. But we wanted more.

 

Sweet Lily - proud of her accomplishment of stacking the blocks like the picture.

Seizure Disorders

One of the greatest needs was with our youngest child, Lily, who was adopted at birth. Lily is challenged with a significant learning disability. She is one of the sweetest girls you will ever meet, and though she is in her early 20’s, her mind hasn’t progressed beyond that of a two-year old. At age 13, she began having full Tonic Clonic (grand mal) seizures. The prescribed medication helped reduced the number of seizures each month, but they still continued and it also gave her anxiety, made her agitated and often very irritable. For years we looked for better ways to control the seizures without the disturbing side effects. As we began to hear about the amazing results some people were getting with CBD, we decided to make the change. Working with her neurologist, we slowly transitioned her off of the medication she had been taking for 7 years - and the results have been extremely encouraging. Since she has been using CBD we have seen a significant drop in how many seizures she has each month, a marked improvement in her mood; she is no longer constantly irritable and she seems to have significantly less anxiety. We are encouraged with what we have seen so far and are hoping to see even more improvement over time.

Anxiety, Panic Attacks and Depression

With multiple kids having special needs, seizures and other challenges, things around home can get pretty hectic. Add to that, launching a new business and then throw in Covid and you get a recipe for intense overload. The result - these past two years we have had multiple family members dealing with extreme anxiety and depression and for some, even panic attacks. And we are not alone, recent studies indicate that since Covid started, as many as 40 million Americans admit they deal with anxiety on a regular basis.  

We have found using CBD to be a game changer. With 5 family members now taking CBD daily, we are experiencing everything from better sleep, less anxiety, WAY better attitudes and for one family member, CBD has even helped her avoid harsh, addictive medications.  

The most Delicious and Healthy Brownie EVER!

We knew that creating baking mixes with CBD would be a great way to enjoy the benefits of CBD without the nasty hemp or weed-like taste that often shows up in capsules or tinctures. We are excited to offer our first CBD product - our Hemp Infused Brownies. Starting with our delicious Frosted Fudgy Brownie mix, we added a proprietary, pure powder designed specifically for this application. This specially sourced powdered version of hemp extract keeps all the good stuff but eliminates the hempy flavor and inconsistencies found in hemp oil. This allows our team of chefs to have a consistent ingredient that we dry blend into each batch with precision. Now you can enjoy your favorite keto brownies with an added touch of goodness. Feel good with each bite knowing you received the highest quality edible. As for THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the molecule in cannabis that gets a person high, we use a Full-Spectrum CBD powder that has no detectable amount of THC.

Like all of our KetoBakes products, our new Brownies are Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Grain Free and Starch Free. And just like our regular Frosted Fudgy Brownies, our new Hemp Infused Brownies include our delicious Ganache topping.

We love this delicious way to get our CBD several times a day (while adding good fats and nutrition and very few carbs!)

End Note from Mark -

I don’t claim to be an expert on CBD or CBD related products, at best, I’m a constant student, learning what I can and how it might possibly help our family.  

Always consume your KetoBakes CBD edibles responsibly. We recommend trying half a brownie to begin with if you are brand new to CBD. The experts say that one cannot overdose on CBD (THC free), but every person has their own “sweet spot” for perfect amount to reach your particular desired effect. The amount one would want to consume to take the edge off of stress would be different than the amount wanted to battle pain, for example. We will let you research that for yourself.

Mark & Becky Potterbaum started KetoBakes in January 2020 as a way to make delicious keto products available to families and to make the keto and low-carb lifestyle more easily attainable for all.

 

As with any product that can impact your health we recommend that you consult your trusted health advisor before use if you are pregnant, nursing, or have a medical condition, or taking any medications.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating compound...(read more)

What exactly is CBD and is it safe?

The following includes excerpts from a Health.Harvard.edu publication from Sept 2021.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating compound found in cannabis and hemp. CBD is being used to manage anxiety, stress, pain, and other symptoms.  

It is the second most prevalent active ingredient in cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, a cousin of marijuana, or manufactured in a laboratory. One of hundreds of components in marijuana, CBD does not cause a "high" by itself. According to a report from the World Health Organization, "In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD."

Many people typically associate cannabis with getting stoned, but CBD can be extracted from the plant to make products that come without the high or the smoke. The molecule in cannabis that gets a person high is called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), but nowadays, you can find CBD products with little to no THC for clear-headed symptom relief.

Our CBD (Full Spectrum) is THC free. It is made from domestically grown hemp and is free from heavy metals and pesticides.   Here is KetoBakes Certificate of Analysis by a third-party testing lab.

Is it legal?

CBD is readily obtainable in most parts of the United States and all 50 states have laws legalizing CBD with varying degrees of restriction. In December 2015, the FDA eased the regulatory requirements to allow researchers to conduct CBD trials. In 2018, the Farm Bill made hemp legal in the United States, making it virtually impossible to keep CBD illegal – that would be like making oranges legal, but keeping orange juice illegal. In essence, this means that CBD is legal if it comes from hemp.

The evidence for cannabidiol health benefits

CBD has been touted for a wide variety of health issues, but the strongest scientific evidence is for its effectiveness in treating some of the cruelest childhood epilepsy syndromes, such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), which typically don’t respond to antiseizure medications. In numerous studies, CBD was able to reduce the number of seizures, and, in some cases, stop them altogether. Animal studies, and self-reports or research in humans, suggest CBD may also help with:

      • Anxiety:  Studies and clinical trials are exploring the common report that CBD can reduce anxiety.
      •  
  • Insomnia: Studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.
  •  
  • Chronic pain: Further human studies are needed to substantiate claims that CBD helps manage pain. One animal study from the European Journal of Pain suggests CBD could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Other research identifies how CBD may inhibit inflammatory and neuropathic pain, which are difficult to treat.
  •  
  • Addictions:  CBD can help lower cravings for tobacco and heroin under certain conditions, according to some research on humans. Animal models of addiction suggest it may also help lessen cravings for alcohol, cannabis, opiates, and stimulants.

CBD and full plant hemp extracts are now being utilized... (read more)

Can you taste the Hemp?

 Nope! Not in our edible!

CBD and full plant hemp extracts are now being utilized in various food and beverage applications across the US. This often requires a high-level conversion of moving out of an oil and into a water-based or powder-based formulation.

For our brownie mix, we chose to utilize a proprietary pure powder designed specifically for this application. This powdered version of hemp extract keeps all the good stuff but eliminates the hempy flavor and inconsistencies found in oil.

This allows our team of chefs to have a consistent ingredient that we dry blend into each batch with precision. Now you can enjoy your favorite keto brownies with an added touch of goodness. Feel good with each bite knowing you received the highest quality edible.

No sacrifices.

  •  
  • Another 2011 study found that CBD reduced anxiety symptoms in people with social anxiety disorder.
