With the multitude of options available, choosing a CBD product can seem like a daunting task. If you’re a first-time buyer of CBD you may be wondering: what does CBD oil taste like? Aside from extraction and filtration, other factors can change the taste including the method of consumption and the addition of any natural flavors.
The Taste of CBD Oil
Pure and unfiltered CBD oil is extracted from the aerial parts of the plant, and is described as nutty, grassy or “earthy.” This flavor profile is a combination of the organic compounds found in the plant, including the cannabinoids, chlorophyll, and terpenes. There are several methods of CBD oil extraction with each method requiring a specific filtration component. The type of extraction or filtration method used can greatly affect the end product. In other words, some filtration processes can produce a more neutral, palatable taste. This variability allows for CBD oil to have a different taste from company to company depending on the process they use.
What Does CBD Oil Taste Like in a Tincture?
Besides filtration, the taste can depend on the method of consumption. From tinctures to nanogels to gumdrops, there are many ways to consume CBD oil. To improve taste, many tinctures have added flavors, including orange, peppermint, and chocolate. As we mentioned, the taste of the CBD oil varies greatly depending on the company; we commonly receive feedback that even our natural flavor tincture has a very pleasant taste.
Other Methods to Mask Any Unwanted Flavors
To avoid the taste of CBD altogether, try capsules that contain CBD and are swallowed, also known as nanogels. Another alternative is to apply CBD directly to the skin with a salve. Likewise, gumdrops and other edibles contain CBD, but the natural flavor of the oil is usually completely hidden.
Viridipharm’s CBD Oil
We utilize a supercritical CO2 extraction that undergoes a patented process to produce our pleasant-tasting CBD oil. In addition, our natural flavor tincture is a sweet and delicious CBD oil from the organic coconut oil we use. If sweet or savory is more your thing, our orange or chocolate tincture is a great option. Lastly, for a fresh-tasting CBD oil, a peppermint tincture may be a good option.
In conclusion, whatever flavor you choose, we hope you enjoy our CBD and would love to hear your feedback! If you ever have any questions regarding the taste of our CBD oil or about any of our products, please feel free to send us a message.
