Why does CBD oil taste so gross?
When trying CBD Oil for the first time, many people complain about the distinctly bitter, spicy, earthy taste it leaves in your mouth.
The 100% organic hemp oil base is relatively tasteless, but it is the CBD-rich extract that we mix in this base that gives you the ‘unique’ taste.
It is extracted from the stems, leaves and flowers of the plant, and to ensure that you get the full spectrum of cannabinoids, we do as little as possible.
It is the natural terpenes, chlorophyll, cannabinoids and other naturally occurring substances that create the taste.
How can I make CBD oil taste better?
Some users like the taste of pleasant, others think it grows on them and some others really don’t like it.
The easiest way to remove the taste is with a glass of water. Just take CBD as usual by placing a drop under your tongue and leaving it for a minute.
Then swallow and rinse a mouthful of water to remove any remaining CBD oil in your mouth. Usually the taste disappears within 30 seconds.
Can I cook with CBD oil?
Yes. We’ve even created a range of delicious CBD oil recipes. The rules for cooking with CBD are simple.
- Always make sure you are aware of the dosage per serving and do not exceed the recommended dosage.
- Mix the CBD oil with your cooking oil or fat before cooking.
- Do not use CBD at temperatures above 450C (the smoking point of hemp oil)
- Do not use CBD products if you are breastfeeding.
- Not suitable for children.
- Consult your doctor if you are taking medication.
10 Unique Ways To Cover The Taste Of CBD Oil
As people become more aware of the medicinal benefits of cannabis, they discover that it is different to consume it.
While smoking medical marijuana is what most people think of when they hear about medical cannabis, as a method it quickly fades into the background.
Smoking marijuana can lead to the absorption of toxic chemicals; however, there are other ways to consume it that are much healthier.
An extremely popular option is CBD oil. This refers to a daily supplement made from the CBD extract of hemp or cannabis, which allows you to improve your health-promoting CBD without the psychoactive effects of THC.
However, users of CBD oil often complain about the taste. To reap the benefits of CBD, hold the drops under your tongue for 60-90 seconds before swallowing so that the substance can be absorbed into your bloodstream.
But many find the taste unpleasant and describe it as dirty. Some people even find the taste almost unbearable.
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to mask the taste. Read on to discover our 10 best ways to mask the taste of CBD oil.
1. Keep a snack handy
One of the most popular ways to get rid of the taste of CBD oil is to use food. Grab a snack you like and keep it handy.
After your minute and a half has passed, you can eat the food to replace the taste with something better.
A common choice is to use chocolate. You can even put a piece of chocolate under your tongue after or during the use of the oil.
2. Use mints
As with the above point, you only need to use a mint, Tic Tac or gum after taking the tincture; you can also put the mint under your tongue while taking the oil.
This should make your breath feel minty fresh and leave a more refreshing taste on your palette.
3. Brush your teeth just before use
If you are taking your CBD oil in the morning or evening, try brushing your teeth beforehand.
You can minimize the taste because you can taste more minty flavors with your tongue instead of the earthy taste of the oil.
4. Breathe through your nose
After applying the oil under your tongue, close your mouth tightly and breathe through your nose.
While this is not the best way to mask the taste, you may be able to mask it by not drawing air over your tongue.
You might even be able to hold your nose, as many studies have shown that it prevents you from tasting at all.
Have you ever wondered why food doesn’t taste as good when you have a cold? A stuffy nose can block your taste receptors, which is why this method can also work for taking CBD oil .
Keep a drink nearby
This is probably an obvious idea, but you can have a drink to wash away the flavor once you’re done taking the oil.
Even water will get rid of the flavor, but it can take a few swigs to dissipate the flavor that spreads the flavor across your palette.
Many users of CBD oil say that coffee is a great option for getting rid of the pine flavor because it is strong on its own, but make sure it has cooled before drinking it!
If coffee isn’t your thing, try fruit juice or lemon water – both very refreshing, delicious options.
6. Drop some honey under your tongue
Honey is an incredible natural sweetener, and it can work wonders in getting rid of other flavors.
The sweet liquid can be dripped under your tongue along with the CBD oil, allowing your tongue to pick up the nicer tones instead of the unpleasant taste of the oil.
It only takes a few drops and hopefully it makes the experience a bit easier.
7. Try CBD isolate
The earthy flavor we mentioned above refers to that of most CBD products due to their origin in pure hemp.
That said, if you use a CBD isolate product, you may be able to get rid of the taste altogether.
While full spectrum CBD products use the whole plant (meaning they contain other compounds like CBG, CBDa and the infamous psychoactive substance THC), CBD isolate contains only the compound itself, extracted only from the plant.
This means that CBD isolate lacks the signature earthy flavor that whole plant products have.
Isolate versus full spectrum
You will notice that our products are available in two versions, Isolate and Full Spectrum.
The reason for this is that, and science suggests, we take things better in their natural form.
For CBD, that means consuming the other terpenes and cannabinoids found in the hemp plant.
This is what we give you in our Full Spectrum or “whole plant” product. However, if you are concerned about a drug test at work, just the CBD, THC-free isolate is a safer bet as most of these tests pay attention to THC.
None of the products are designed to make you ‘high’, but we want to offer everyone an option.
Note, however, that there are other medicinal benefits in the other compounds, so you may not get all the benefits of full spectrum CBD oil .
If you really can’t tolerate the taste, it might be worth switching to an isolate.
8. Mix the oil with edibles
While sublingually administering the oil (under the tongue) is the best absorption method, you could try adding your oil to the food if you really can’t tolerate the taste of CBD oil.
This of course has a much slower absorption capacity, but it certainly tastes better!
Add a few drops of oil to a smoothie or a drink, or even try mixing it with food.
The absorption time via this method can be over an hour, so you should be aware of this.
Do not increase your dose in the hope that the effects will occur more quickly – it could just send you your normal dose and build tolerance!
9. Swallow the oil with yogurt
If you don’t mind the oil if you just hold it under your tongue, try swallowing it with something that masks the taste.
For example, some sweet vanilla yogurt will definitely get rid of the unpleasant taste if you eat a spoon while swallowing the oil.
10. Buy some Vcaps
Vcaps are an excellent way to apply CBD oil if you dislike the taste.
Basically, these are empty capsules in which you can put a few drops of CBD oil to take it just like a regular pill.
Again, this method means you absorb the CBD through the shot, so it may take significantly longer for the effects to appear.
And if you are health conscious or care about the environment, Vcaps are the perfect option because they are completely vegetarian.
Whether you make your own CBD oil or buy it in the store, if you are willing to wait longer for the CBD oil to take effect, this can be a great option.
So … what is the conclusion?
CBD oil is a possible form of medication for those who want to reap the full benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive effects of THC. It also offers a safe and healthier alternative to consumption methods such as smoking.
But while CBD oil is a very popular choice for medical cannabis users, the taste can be quite unpleasant.
That said, perhaps you can make the experience a little more enjoyable by following our tips above.
Alternatively, if you really hate the taste and aren’t a fan of CBD oil, there are always other options, such as vaping with a CBD-rich cannabis strain.
