Golden milk for inflammation

Golden milk for insomnia

Curcumin, the medicinal component in turmeric is linked to enhancing brains chemicals such as noradrenalin and serotonin, and increase the production of dopamine. Balanced brain chemicals mean better sleep.

The ingredients I’ve used in this recipe are also ideal for balancing hormones, which is key for great sleep.

The role turmeric and ginger play in this CBD oil golden milk recipe also help digestion, and lower inflammation which will help you sleep.

How to make golden milk?

Making golden milk is so easy! All you need is a small pan, mug to drink out of a ten minutes to simmer. Cooking turmeric with black pepper for ten minutes releases the healing properties of the turmeric so it can work most effectively. If it’s too hot or you don’t have access to a stove, mix all the ingredients up and pour over ice, as you’re still going to get many of the beneficial properties of this drink.

CBD Oil Golden Milk Recipe:

(Paleo, Vegan, Anti-inflammatory)

Serves 2

2 cups of almond or coconut milk

1 tsp of coconut oil 

1 teaspoon of turmeric

½ teaspoon of ceylon cinnamon

1 teaspoon of maple syrup or raw honey

1 inch strip fresh ginger or ¼ teaspoon of ginger powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

CBD Oil (see notes)


  1. Add milk, vanilla and spices to small saucepan over low heat and cook 10 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat, pour into mugs, add desired amount of CBD oil (see notes) and stir well.
  3. Enjoy!


Stevia works well in this recipe in place of maple or honey. I recommend 1-2 drops.

I recommend using Medterra CBD oil.  The amount of oil you use in the recipe, depends on your desired dose. I recommend starting with 3 mg and working your way up very slowly and gradually.
