Weehawken Business: Rosebud CBD

When I was planning the Shop Local Holiday Guide the absolute very first thing I thought of featuring was Rosebud CBD. Rosebud is not only a local company, but the packaging is GORGEOUS, and the founder, Alexis Rosenbaum, also knows her stuff. The Instagram feed isn't just filled with beautiful images, but facts too. Because the oil is a product of Cannabis plant there are a lot of opinions and beliefs (and what your mom thinks) floating around, but Alexis and her company have really become a fountain of knowledge on the subject. 

Let's start with the first thing-- CBD will NOT get you high. However the relaxed feeling you get when you're high, will happen (first hand experience). Taken from the Rosebud CBD website:

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most prevalent cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It’s history in medicine dates back to prehistory. It has long been pushed aside while scientists and users focused on the mind-altering component, THC.

CBD has been known to reduce anxiety and stress, inflammation and pain; as well as topical ailments like psoriasis, acne and eczema.

CBD oil is non-intoxicating, has almost no side effects, and is virtually impossible to lethally overdose.

CBD is a wonderful natural anxiety solution, and has become my number one reason for use. I’ve also added it to some coconut oil to topically help the eczema I get on my legs during the winter. It has a number of other wonderful benefits, but because the lack of regulation there are a lot of lesser CBD products on the market. Rosebud CBD is grown and processed in Oregon, one of only 4 States in the US that actually regulates and certifies the products made from Cannabis.

I’m not going to go on about CBD because I’m not the expert, nor am I well-versed enough in the subject to educate anyone. Instead I suggest you head over to the Rosebud CBD site here to get all the information you need. What I can tell you is that I believe in the use of Cannabis, CBD and Rosebud CBD for myself.

Back to the Holidays, because as they say, they’re the most WONDERFUL time of the year. But maybe they’re not. The Holidays are a time of stress and anxiety, between entertaining, attending events, buying gifts and dealing with family. This Holiday season I’m saying f**k that noise. Instead, together with Rosebud CBD, we headed over to Hudson Table in Hoboken— an open kitchen where you can eat expertly made meals by different chefs, or get hands on experience learning to make meals yourself. Lead by Resident Chef Instructor Angie Marin, who has a background in Cannabis infused cooking, we learned how to make these amazing Rosebud CBD Infused Pumpkin and Maple Cookies. See the recipe below if you’re interested in making yourself a sweet, and calming holiday treat.

Angie Marin’s Rosebud CBD Infused Pumpkin & Maple Cookies

The recipe yields 3 dozen cookies that are about 3.5mg dosage

For the Cookies:


2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon ground clove

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3-5 full droppers of Rosebud 350mg CBD oil

1 cup pure pumpkin puree

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1 1/4 cups old-fashioned oats

For the Maple Glaze:

2 tablespoons melted butter

1 1/3 cups powdered sugar

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons milk

¼ to full dropper of Rosebud 350mg CBD oil (optional)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large sheet tray with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.

  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt in a medium bowl.  Set aside.

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg, vanilla extract, and CBD oil. Beat until combined. Beat in the pumpkin and maple syrup until smooth. Gradually add half of the flour mixture, scrape sides down and add the remaining flour. Being careful not to overmix, you want to just get to the point where you don’t see any remaining dry flour. Stir in the oats.

  • Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. If you’d like flatter cookies, dip finger into small amount of water or oil and just lightly press the cookies down a bit. Bake cookies for 12 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

  • While the cookies are cooling, make the glaze. In a medium bowl, whisk together melted butter, powdered sugar, maple syrup, vanilla extract, milk, and CBD oil (if using). Whisk until smooth. The more milk you add the thinner the glaze will be. Depends on your preference. I like a thicker glaze!

  • Drizzle maple glaze over cooled cookies. If you can resist, let sit until glaze hardens.
