Did you know that hemp likely originated in Central Asia?(1) It’s only fitting, then, to add hemp-based ingredients like hemp seeds and CBD to Asian dishes.
Mixing in some hemp to Asian fare is simple — you just need to know how and when to use it. We’re showing you how to do just that with three Chinese recipes that also serve as an introduction to common Asian culinary techniques, like stir-frying, and ingredients, such as ginger and sesame oil. You’ll be able to apply these principles in Japanese cooking and other eastern cuisines, and use what you learn about cooking with CBD in all kinds of snacks and meals.
Even if you know your way around a wok, your mouth will be watering over these easy recipes that feature nutrition-packed hemp seeds and hemp-derived CBD oil.

Long noodles, also called longevity noodles, are enjoyed across China. The lengthy noodle nests tend to make an appearance at celebratory meals such as birthday spreads and Chinese New Year feasts.
This recipe combines long noodles with citrus, a symbol of luck and prosperity in Chinese culture, plus hemp seeds to make a power-packed salad that tastes as good as it looks! You can opt to bring more citrus and hemp in the form of orange-flavored CBD, or enjoy it without.
Either way, this is a flavor-packed vegan Chinese dish that satisfies anytime.
Bonus: You can make this meal ahead of time. If you do, keep the dressing separate from the salad until serving. Also label any CBD-infused dressing so it doesn’t get mixed up in the fridge — which is where you should store this dressing and the made-ahead salad, by the way.
Makes four servings. If using CBD, each serving contains one serving of CBD oil.
While orange chicken is an Americanized take on Chinese food, you can introduce traditional Chinese flair to the dish with five spice and a more traditional (and way healthier) deep-fry-free cooking method. It cooks up faster than you can order takeout, and it totally hits the orange-chicken-craving spot. Serve it alongside rice or noodles and steamed veggies for a completely satisfying meal.
If you aren’t familiar with five spice, you’re in for a real treat! This Chinese spice blend is made with cinnamon, fennel, star anise, clove, and pepper, which dance on your tongue before warming your belly in the best way. You can find five spice in just about any grocery store. If it’s not in the spice aisle, check the Asian or ethnic food section.
Makes four servings, each with one serving of CBD. Inspired by Lemon Chicken by MrsLarkin.(2)
Hemp and sesame seeds add a protein-rich and nutritious finish to this traditional fried rice recipe. An easy Chinese home cooking classic, this is one you can pull out of your back pocket whenever you have leftover fried rice and need a fast meal.
We highly recommend using butter instead of oil while cooking this dish. The butter helps the rice get that irresistibly crispy texture, and butter+soy sauce is *chef’s kiss* extraordinary. You can use vegan butter alternatives if you’re a plant-based or dairy-free eater.
Makes four servings.
Every meal is a celebration when you bring the exciting flavors of Asian cuisine and the health-giving properties of hemp to your plate.
