There are different elements that affect the taste of CBD oil:
The carrier oil that’s used in a CBD oil greatly influences its taste and flavour, too. Hemp seed oil , which Good Hemp’s CBD oil is based on, has light and nutty notes. It also happens to be super rich in omega 3 and contains 40% less saturated fats than olive oil – good for your heart and arteries!
The Carrier Oil
Flavoured CBD oils , however, contain chemical or natural flavourings that mask the taste of pure CBD oil. If you’re not sure if you’re up for the full hemp-like experience the first time around, a flavoured version of CBD oil might take your preference.
You may have stumbled across our range of flavoured CBD oils and are now wondering what’s in our zesty citrus and peppermint products. The good news is: our flavoured CBD oils are pure, lab-tested and totally free of preservatives. Any flavourings we add are 100% natural to ensure that you’re spared the aches and pains that can come as a result of artificial flavouring agents. It’s simply another reason why we believe our CBD oil is the best on the planet ; but we’re not biased, really.
If you’re experiencing those earthy tones we mentioned above, this means the product is natural and non-toxic – if the oil tastes sweeter or a bit chemical, this can be a sign of artificial flavouring, which we’ll talk more about later.
We use carrier oils in CBD oil because, well, they carry the compound into your bloodstream, allowing for increased absorbency and enhanced efficacy. Common carriers for CBD include olive oil, hemp seed oil and coconut oil; all of which alter the taste profile of your daily supplement. So which one should you look out for?
So, here, we’re breaking down how you can find the best-tasting CBD oil for you – because your day-to-day self-care rituals should always be enjoyable.
Not all CBD oils are made the same. Because of this, they can taste very different, too, with broad-spectrum oil, crude oil and CBD isolate each boasting a unique flavour. Here’s what sets them apart…
A broad-spectrum CBD oil – like the CBD Oil Drops – teams CBD with a host of other wellness heroes to enhance the effects of every drop. You have terpenes, which are aromatic compounds, boosted by therapeutic benefits. Then there are additional cannabinoids, like cannabigerol (CBG) and cannabichromene (CBC). Together, they’re believed to deliver an ‘entourage effect’ by heightening each other’s impact, while also altering the often-hempy taste of CBD. Depending on what terpenes are boosting your oil, the flavour could range from slightly citrusy to piney and fresh. These flavours can then be enhanced with a blend of tasting notes. (But more on that later.)
This is our carrier oil of choice, found in all of our CBD oils. Not only does its blend of fatty acids give an added health boost, but it tastes light, clean and fresh, too.
CBD oils infused with olive oil may remind you of the taste of cooking oil. They’re slightly nutty or grassy, with a relatively subtle flavour.
If you haven’t tasted CBD oil before, you might be wondering what to expect. Is it fresh and herbal? Grassy and green? whispers Does it taste as bad as spirulina?
