Glaze and Rub: Preparing to Infuse Your 4th of July Feast




The U.S. is approaching another birthday since the Constitution was signed, but despite the historical relevancy, most of us tend to just sit out by a pool and eat a lot of grilled protein. Ribs in particular are a popular choice, especially since the 4th of July is on a Wednesday this year—with no work to deal with, there isn’t much else to do other than wait hours for a that beautiful rack of ribs to cook thoroughly. So take advantage of this glorious, mid-week day off to make a delicious, mouth-watering rack of ribs that will not only satisfy your grill-craving, but also have a extra dose of CBD distillate too to make you feel completely satisfied and relaxed.


Sweet and Spicy Rib-Rub

No cannabis here, but there are the quintessential herbs and spices necessary to make an amazing rib-rub!



1 rack of pork ribs

4 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 tablespoon onion powder

1 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon dried oregano

2 tablespoons chili powder


  1. Mix all ingredients together. Apply to prepared rack of ribs.
  2. Wrap rubbed ribs in foil and save until ready to grill.


CBD Distillate-Infused Rib-Glaze

Have patience while this delicious glaze infuses your ribs (which will probably take at least three hours to fully cook).


1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 onion, chopped

1 tablespoon CBD distillate

1 cup ketchup

3/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1 cup beef broth

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon celery salt

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Heat up the oil in medium-sized saucepan. Add in garlic and onion, season with salt and pepper and cook for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan, and let simmer until the mixture thickens (at least 30-40 minutes).
  3. When you’re ready to grill the ribs, be sure to add this infused rib-glaze half way through the process, applying multiple times for maximum flavor.
