Choose Your CBD Hemp Oil
I used Elixinol brand when developing this recipe. When making this recipe, follow the amount called for, which is 2 teaspoons of CBD hemp oil product.
Using this amount will provide you with the right texture and flavor for the sauce, as we developed in the Test Kitchen.
Using the Elixinol brand means that each 2 tablespoon sized serving of our Low FODMAP CBD Oil Salted Caramel Sauce will contain about 5 milligrams of cannabidiol (CBD).
If you use a different brand, your dosage might vary.
If you cannot find lactose-free heavy cream in your supermarket, you can make your own by following our DIY Lactose-Free Dairy recipe.

Low FODMAP CBD Salted Caramel Sauce
We have articles on using CBD Hemp Oil safely and effectively as well as a few recipes, such as this one, using CBD oil.
Low FODMAP Serving Size Info: Makes about 2 cups (480 ml); 16 servings; serving size is 2 tablespoons sauce, which contains 5 milligrams of CBD.
- 2 cups (396 g) sugar
- 1/2 cup (120 ml) water
- 1 cup (240 ml) plus 2 tablespoons lactose-free heavy cream, warmed or at least at room temperature
- 4 tablespoons (57 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature, cut into pieces
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or fleur de sel
- 2 teaspoons CBD hemp oil, such as Elixinol Hemp Extract
- Large flake salt, such as Maldon or more fleur de sel, optional
Place the sugar and water in a deep 4-quart (3.8 L) heavy pot, preferably stainless steel. Stir to combine the sugar and water and cook over a medium-high heat, without stirring, until the sugar syrup begins to take on a golden color, anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes depending on the heat conductivity of your pot. Wash down the sides of the pot once or twice with a damp pastry brush if necessary if sugar crystals are clinging but it is very important that you leave the boiling sugar syrup undisturbed or the sauce will crystallize.
When the syrup take on a medium amber color, watch very closely as the color will darken very quickly. Don’t walk away! Within the next minute or two the caramel will turn a very rich amber color, almost a mahogany brown. Immediately remove from the heat and quickly but slowly pour in the cream. The mixture will most likely bubble up furiously; the deep pot will protect you from over-flow. Just let the bubbling subside a bit and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the butter and ½ teaspoon kosher salt until the residual heat melts the butter and your sauce is smooth.
Cool until just warm, but still fluid, the whisk in the CBD oil. Sauce is ready to use. You may sprinkle the optional large flake salt on top of each serving for an extra dose of salty.
Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Re-heat sauce very gently, never allowing the temperature to rise above 180°F/82°C. You can do this in a double boiler or even just place the container holding the sauce in a larger pan filled with very hot water.
