Why Does Your CBD Taste, Umm…Bad?

CBD oil

Bluebird Botanicals’ CBD is known for many things – its quality, affordability, accessibility, and transparency into the ingredients of its products. However, one thing it’s not known for is tasting like candy.

There are many tastebud-pleasing CBD products on the market today ranging from gummies, candies, and sodas to baked goods. While we love tasty goods as much as the next person, our CBD products taste…well, they taste a little different. Earthy. Robust. Or, as one customer so kindly put it, “like bong water mixed with grass clippings.” 

Yeah, that’s not an appealing description. But there’s a reason why our extracts taste the way they do – because they’re natural, potent, and free from artificial ingredients and flavorings. 

If you’ve ever wandered through a hemp field or visited a cannabis dispensary, you’re probably familiar with the plant’s distinct scent. This aroma comes from terpenes, which are chemical compounds made up of carbon, hydrogen, and sometimes oxygen in different arrangements. These compounds are found in the essential oils of many types of plants, flowers, and even in some insects.

Terpenes contribute heavily to the scent and taste of botanicals. So, when you’re tasting one of our full-spectrum hemp extracts and are experiencing a very earthy or plant-like flavor, you are meeting terpenes face-to-face. It’s what gives wine and beer their distinct flavors and aromas as well.

Furthermore, Bluebird Botanicals is highly dedicated to preserving the utmost quality of our hemp extracts. We keep our hemp extracts free of added sugar and artificial flavoring in favor of natural, nutritious ingredients designed to maximize the benefits of CBD.

However, we recognize that, despite the benefits of keeping our extracts naturally flavored, the unbridled taste can be just a bit too bold for some. That’s why we also offer flavorless CBD options including our CBD soft gels and our THC-Free* CBD Oil

Our CBD soft gels feature the same full-spectrum extract you know and love neatly contained in a gelatin capsule. Our THC-Free* CBD oil, on the other hand, features a CBD isolate instead of full-spectrum extract, meaning that the terpenes, cannabinoids, and other components are stripped away to leave 99.9% CBD. In this oil, we blended this isolate with fractionated coconut oil to leave an extremely mild, almost undetectable taste.
