My CBD Taste Adventure

in #weedcash2 years ago (edited)

Hi Ho Steemians!

In one of my previous posts, I talked about my very first bottle of CBD oil, and how the luxurious feel and mellow taste of it reminded me of the green butter cookies I used to munch on at our “pot luck" parties back in the seventies.

Even though I was well pleased with that first bottle, I decided to purchase my second bottle from our newly opened local Hemp store. Buy local when you can, right?

After a detailed conversation with the store clerk, I decided to get a one-ounce bottle of Charlotte’s Web 1000 milligram (mg.), labeled EXTRA STRENGTH.


Charlotte’s Web has a good reputation, so I plucked down $80, plus tax.

Their CBD oil came in two flavors; Olive Oil-Natural and Chocolate Mint. The clerk recommended the Natural flavor, because so many customers had complained about the bad taste of the Chocolate Mint version.

I tried the oil later that night and the taste was horrid! I couldn’t even imagine that Euell Gibbons would be OK with the taste of this stuff!

Every time I took a dose of that oil, I had to chase it with something …anything! Someone suggested taking it after I brushed my teeth to change the taste of the oil, but that trick just did not help enough.

So, I bought another bottle from CBDistillery. This time I tried their one-ounce THC-free 1000 mg. bottle. I wanted to see if I could sense a difference between the full-spectrum and THC-free variety.

At first, I just put the nasty “Olive Oil-Natural” CBD to the side, just to give myself a break while I tried the THC-free. After a couple of weeks, there was no real noticeable difference without the THC.

Just so I wouldn’t waste the Charlotte’s Web CBD, I poured the 2 oils together. It was still nasty, but I had definitely noticed a decrease in pain from switching up from 500 mg. to 1000 mg, so I suffered through the taste.

My next bottle actually came from my favorite pet store. I had been giving Arlo some of my oil, and I wanted to see if there was any difference in the pet formulation.

And since I was now buying 1000 mg. bottles, I felt a lower strength was a better choice for Arlo. After I shelled out $80; of course, I had to taste it! On the scale of nastiness, it was between the combined oils and the Charlotte’s Web CBD.

After that I was done messing around. Since then it has been nothing but full-spectrum CBD from CBDistillery in 1000mg. strength. But, each bottle still had a noticeable difference in taste! My most recent bottle has a slight minty taste to it, and I actually love it!

This made me curious as to why there would be taste fluctuations, and caused me to research what actually gave my recent oil that minty taste.


What I have come to find out is that the terpenes in the CBD oil affect the taste, and that terpenes vary from plant to plant. In my next post I will talk about terpenes!

Until then please let me know your thoughts!
Sort:  

CBD oils are here always without THC. We can also buy it as capsules. It did not work for me and no one I know or ask.

I have hemp oil too... took it and used it for my skin (no result) and the taste is ... not my taste 🤐.
Used one bottle but never for my salad.

By the way the cream a neighbour made out of his own plants for his burns only caused me allergies too.

Oh no! - on the allergic reaction! Where is here? There are a lot of products claiming to have CBD right now, but don’t really have CBD as an ingredient! What do you use for pain?

YES THEY DO AFFECT THE TASTE OF CBD. I'VE NOTICED THAT TOO. NOW AS WITH ANYTHING, USING ONE THING OVER AND OVER ON THE BODY WILL CAUSE YOU TO GET USE TO IT. YOU'LL FIND THE PAIN RETURNING SOONER ; OR IT NOT ATTACKING THE PAIN AS WELL. THIS CAN BE DUE TO DOES BUT I THINK IT'S GOOD TO SWITCH KINDS THAT YOU USE. YOUR BODY GROWS DEPENDENT. EVEN THOUGH IT TASTE BAD I'M SURE IT WORKED BETTER BECAUSE YOUR BODY WASN'T USED TO IT YET. BUT THAT S THE BEAUTY OF IT, SO MANY PLANTS, SO MANY DIFFERENT TYPE OF CBD (P.S NOT YELLING IM BLIND.. I TAKE LYRICA, IF NOT I COULDNT WALK BUT IT HAS DECREASED MY VISION SO BADLY. IT'S EASIER TO SEE AND UNDERSTAND THE LETTERS IN CAPS. SORRY IF THIS BOTHERS YOU)

Thanks @deardabby! I appreciate you taking the time to make a comment. Do you have any screen readers or magnifiers on your computer? If not, you might want to reach out to Vocational Rehabilitation/Independent Living in your hometown so they can help you get something to help with your computer vision. (I used to work there!)

And thank you for reminding me about the way our bodies grow accustomed to elements and how that changes our response to repeated use of any medication over time. I knew that from my previous experience with essential oil formulations that I have ingested, but just didn't think about it impacting my CBD oil results! So, I appreciate the reminder. I am hoping to grow my own cannabis and make some CBD capsules. I am learning all about it here on the Weed Cash Network!
