If you had to guess, what would you expect CBD to taste like? You might be inclined to say “weed,” but you’d only be close. CBD has a very verdant, earthy green taste, not unlike wheatgrass juice or fresh-cut grass or microgreens. Many people find the taste to be quite pleasant, but if you find it a bit strong, you’ll be happy to know CBD blends well with all sorts of foods, beverages, sauces, and dressings, so you can mix CBD into your favorite food or drink.
If you enjoy the taste of CBD (as many people do), try blending it into salad dressings and herbaceous sauces like chimichurri, or drizzle it over a salad or flavorful fish. You can also take it neat by dispensing the desired amount directly into your mouth or take it sublingually under your tongue for rapid absorption.
CBD is short for Cannabidiol, a healing extract from the industrial hemp plant. But CBD differs from medical marijuana in that CBD contains only trace amounts (<0.3%) THC, which means CBD cannot get you high.
Can You Eat CBD?
Yes, you can! Full spectrum CBD is derived from the cannabis sativa plant’s leaves, stalks, and flowers, and then blended with organic CBD hemp oil, which is pressed from hemp seeds. The hemp oil serves as a carrier to increase the absorption of CBD by the body.
If you prefer to mask the fresh, green taste of CBD, try blending it into your morning smoothie, add it to your bulletproof coffee or latte, mix it into a cocktail, or whip it into peanut butter. You can also apply CBD topically, either in liberal amounts from the bottle, or mixed into your favorite scented lotion.

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!
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.
Some CBD oils contain added flavourings to make them more palpable to the untrained taste buds. And while some flavouring agents are natural and not harmful to your health, others are artificial and could lead to health issues such as allergic reactions, abdominal pain, diarrhea and vomiting. Make sure to read the small print on the packaging before your first purchase!
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.
There are different elements that affect the taste of CBD oil:
We’ve taken the time to explore the different types and tastes of this all-natural compound, so you can reap the benefits without wincing every time you take a gulp of your oil-infused coffee.
This is in comparison to “crude”, unprocessed oils that contain various cannabinoids and terpenes, but also chlorophyll, waxes, and other ingredients that makes for a very unsavoury taste. These “black” oils, as they’re sometimes called, appear as a dark green or brown oil that has an extremely earthy taste and uneven consistency. Steer clear of these oils or risk encountering a very strong flavour.
Make sure to check out our shop for a variety of full spectrum olive oil, hemp oil, and liposomal CBD oils.

Don’t like the taste of CBD oil no matter what it’s made out of? You’re not alone. Thankfully, there are several ways you can make the most of CBD products without having to stomach the grassy, earthy taste that usually comes with them. Here are some hacks you can use to make your oils more palatable and appetising!
• Brushing your teeth after using CBD oil will not only protect them from potential stains, but will also clear that grassy taste right out of your mouth and replace it with some minty freshness!
CBD oils that rely on a hemp seed oil base will taste quite a bit nuttier than other oils. Hemp seed oils are often described as tasting like walnuts or sunflower seeds. Because of this nutty flavour, hemp seed oil is sometimes used as a cooking ingredient.
