All about orally administered CBD
There are many ways to get the benefits of CBD oil. It’s an ingredient in countless products that are applied to the skin, but many people also take it internally, ingesting it as you would any oral supplement or supplement, which raises the question – what does it taste like?
The taste of CBD oil varies widely from product to product, but some kinds of CBD oil can taste pretty bad – having a bitter, grassy, strongly herbal plant-like taste. Some purists may prefer this strong grass-like taste, but most people find it pretty unpleasant. Luckily producers of CBD oil understand this and have developed effective methods to remove the unpleasant plant taste and replace it with flavors far more pleasant to the human palate, primarily in a family of products called Sublingual CBD.
CBD can be absorbed through the skin, which is why it’s an ingredient in many different kinds of beauty and topical products that are applied to the skin, but absorption through the skin is slower.
CBD Sublingual is the solution to both the slow absorption uptake through the skin and the unpleasant taste of unrefined CBD oil. Sublingual means “under-the-tongue” and it’s one of the quickest ways to get a supplement into the bloodstream so you feel its effects faster.
For CBD users who want a potent dose of CBD that acts quickly, CBD sublingual tends to be the product of choice. Understanding what CBD oil is and how it works in Sublingual supplements is the key to getting the best results from this popular hemp-based supplement and not ending up with a bad taste in your mouth.

What is CBD Oil?
There are different ways of extracting oil from the Cannabis Sativa or hemp plant. When you press the entire cannabis plant, including the stalk, leaves, and flowers, a specific compound called CBD is present. CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, one of many compounds in the cannabis plant called cannabinoids. CBD oil is essentially hemp oil made from the cannabis plant that has Cannabidiol in it.
CBD oil is now a popular supplement embraced by the wellness community. Users of CBD oil report a variety of benefits, however, CBD products have not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for therapeutic use, this is why you do not often see the benefits listed by retailers of CBD supplements – it’s not that CBD doesn’t have therapeutic properties, but it is not yet FDA approved to treat any condition.
Importantly, CBD products do not contain THC, the compound associated with the marijuana plant, and CBD is 100% legal to buy and use in every state. As people learn more about CBD and understand that it’s safe, legal, and free from THC, it has become an extremely popular supplement used by millions of people. It’s an ingredient in many health and skincare products and taken orally, it is one of the most common ways of using CBD oil, so one of the first questions people ask is – what does it taste like?
Can you take CBD oil orally?
Yes – you can take CBD oil orally. It’s completely safe as an oral nutritional supplement and digesting it is one way to get its benefits. However, not many people ingest CBD oil, largely because of the bad taste. The unpleasant taste is also the reason why most CBD enthusiasts prefer not to ingest even purified CBD oil.
Not all CBD oils are the same, the concentrations of cannabinoids and the degree of purification widely vary between brands. Depending on how it’s made and how it is purified can make one oil taste very different from another. High-quality CBD oils of high purity generally taste milder than lower quality, or less-refined CBD oils, which can have a strongly unpleasant bitter taste. Since it’s an oil, it also has a slick texture which some people don’t like to swallow. Fortunately, there is a much better way to get the benefits of CBD oil through the oral administration route – Sublingual CBD.
What is Sublingual CBD?
Sublingual CBD is a product designed specifically for oral use that eliminates the bad taste and other concerns associated with ingesting CBD oil. Sublingual means “ under the tongue” which refers to the way this form of CBD oil is used. It’s a liquid administered via a dropper under the tongue. Because the skin under your tongues is thin and rich in blood vessels, substances administered here are easily absorbed quickly.
To use Sublingual CBD Oil, you simply place a few drops of it under your tongue. Bottles of CBD Sublingual come with a dropper that delivers a specific dose. From there, the oil is absorbed directly into the bloodstream instead of proceeding through the digestive tract. You actually don’t swallow anything. The oil is absorbed in a few seconds and evaporates leaving no residue. Many sublingual CBD oils have a light minty taste and leave no unpleasant aftertaste.
Taking CBD oil sublingually is the quickest way to feel its effects. Many people prefer sublingual not just because of how fast it absorbs, but also because they don’t have to swallow anything. Sublingual CBD has emerged as one of the wellness industry’s most popular CBD products due to the ease, speed, and potency associated with this form of CBD oil.
What does CBD oil taste like?
It’s difficult to describe precisely the vaguely herbal, earthy taste of CBD oil, and people are definitely split on what to think about its distinctive flavor. The flavor of CBD oil comes from organic compounds in the plant, such as cannabinoids, terpenes, and chlorophyll. Some cannabis purists accept the flavor as part of the experience of being a hemp enthusiast, viewing the distinct taste as part of the routine and proof they are getting high-quality CBD. But most people do not like the taste of CBD oil, and much prefer the more pleasant taste and texture of CBD sublingual.
Descriptions vary from person to person, but most people describe the taste of CBD oil as vaguely plant-like, similar to olive or other plant oils. Less-purified, more natural “raw” CBD oils have a stronger plant-like taste because it uses the seeds, stalks, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant. CBD oil also contains Chlorophyll, the chemical that gives leaves and grasses their green color. Chlorophyll has a bitter taste that humans find unpleasant, like the taste of freshly cut grass.
As a green leafy plant, Hemp naturally contains an abundance of chlorophyll, and this strong-tasting substance remains present in hemp extracts like CBD oil. If the CBD oil you use has a slight green tint, this denotes a higher concentration of chlorophyll and a stronger grass-taste. Most producers of CBD oil purify it to remove the chlorophyll and minimize the bitter plant taste. Some CBD producers add flavoring or sweeteners to their oil to make it more palatable, but Sublingual CBD is still the preferred choice for users who want no unpleasant taste at all.
What about “Full Spectrum” CBD?
In searching for CBD oil and other products you will find a subclass of products called “Full Spectrums.” This means the full cannabis plant has been used to create the oil, and the THC, the cannabinoid associated with marijuana, has not been removed. Before you buy or use anything labeled as Full Spectrum, understand these products do contain THC. Conversely, CBD oil labeled as “Pure CBD Oil” has been purified to remove the THC.
As for the taste of full-spectrum CBD, it has a more hemp-like taste to it than isolated CBD. This is because full-spectrum oils contain many cannabinoids, including THC and CBD. They also have minimal purification, leaving in many of the naturally occurring plant compounds that give hemp its distinctive taste. If you choose to ingest Full Spectrum CBD oil, the grass-like, strongly herbal flavor will be more noticeable than with pure CBD oil.

What Does CBD Oil Taste Like?
You’re used to medicine being a little bit bitter, which is why the taste of CBD oil doesn’t bother you. With Secret Nature CBD flower, you can even enjoy the original flavor profile of budding cannabis, which everyone agrees tastes much better than CBD oil tinctures.
CBD users generally report that CBD-rich hemp oil tastes reasonably bitter with a distinct earthy flavor. In some cases, users may also report a hint of sweetness, but overall, CBD tastes like what it is–medicine. Some CBD tinctures are infused with artificial or natural flavors, but we like to keep things simple at Secret Nature by offering an unflavored tincture with beneficial ingredients like black seed oil and peppermint oil.
The strong taste that most users report in association with CBD is natural, and it’s a reminder that your CBD-rich cannabis is full of terpenes, cannabinoids, and other compounds that contribute to its unique effects. Dive into the taste of CBD oil with Secret Nature, and learn about all the amazing flavors you can experience when you try our products.
Should CBD oil have a taste?
That depends. First, let’s cover the flavor basics for each of the main three forms of CBD extract:
- Isolate CBD: This type of CBD consists solely of isolated cannabidiol, so it doesn’t have an earthy taste. Instead, isolate CBD mainly tastes bitter.
- Broad-spectrum CBD: With the THC removed, broad-spectrum CBD oil might taste slightly different than full-spectrum CBD.
- Full-spectrum CBD: As a whole-plant extract, full-spectrum CBD oil contains the full medley of terpenes, cannabinoids, and other oils present in cannabis flower. Full-spectrum CBD products tend to have the strongest taste.
So, CBD should have a very noticeable taste when it is in broad-spectrum or full-spectrum form, and isolate CBD has a milder taste. There are some tastes that you never want to have in your CBD oil, however:
- Sweeteners: Some CBD tinctures contain sweeteners to mask the natural taste of hemp. Rather than putting you at risk of diabetes by adding needless sugar, we decided to include natural flavor-enhancers like peppermint oil in our Organic Hemp Flower Nectar instead.
- Flavorings: Natural flavors might be okay, but there’s simply no excuse for contaminating CBD oil with toxic artificial flavoring agents.
- Dyes: Why would you want to change the color of hemp oil? We don’t know either, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that food dye has no place in CBD tinctures.
- Contaminants: That odd taste in your cheap CBD oil might be nothing, or it might be a dangerous contaminant. Make sure that the company you’re working with provides detailed lab testing for quality assurance.
What is CBD oil supposed to taste like?
CBD oil should taste pure, fresh, and inviting. A word to experienced cannabis users–CBD is nothing like THC, and that extends to this cannabinoid’s flavors and sensations as well. Repeated THC inhalation can hurt the throat and cause a cough, but THC doesn’t cause much of a burn on the way in. CBD, however, may naturally cause a brief sensation of heat as it is inhaled. With that said, inhaling CBD over time appears to be much milder than inhaling THC.
If you notice anything odd about the taste of your CBD, stop using the off-flavor product at once. Generally speaking, CBD oil should taste earthy with hints of sunflower seed and walnut, and of course, CBD-rich hemp oil tastes quite a bit like hemp seeds or hemp seed oil.
Green and useful, chlorophyll is an important part of every plant. It doesn’t taste very good, however, which is why cannabis extraction methods that remove chlorophyll should always be preferred.
Most experts agree that it isn’t dangerous to ingest chlorophyll, but the presence of this substance transforms hemp oil from something mildly bitter to a substance so plant-tasting that it almost can’t be consumed orally. In addition, the presence of excessive levels of chlorophyll in CBD-rich hemp oil could be a sign that inferior extraction methods were used.
What does hemp oil taste like?
That all depends on which type of hemp oil we’re talking about. It’s common to use the term “hemp oil” to refer to two very different substances, so it’s important to clarify a few vocabulary points before we proceed.
Hemp seed oil vs. CBD-rich hemp oil
Hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant. During the flowering phase, Cannabis sativa can be stimulated to produce either seeds or cannabinoids, and these seeds have profound nutritional value. Hemp seeds are not high in cannabinoids or terpenes, however, which makes vaping or smoking hemp seed oil useless and perhaps even dangerous.
CBD-rich hemp oil, on the other hand, is not extracted from the seeds of cannabis plants. Instead, it’s extracted from plants that took a different route: expressing as many terpenes and cannabinoids as possible during a brief window leading up to optimum harvestability. Therefore, CBD-rich hemp oil contains high levels of cannabidiol, and other types of hemp flower extract might be high in THC, CBG, or any of the dozens of other discovered cannabinoids.
Culinary uses of each extract
While hemp seed oil and CBD-rich hemp oil taste similar, connoisseurs can tell the difference. Then, of course, there’s the more obvious dissimilarity between the intended purposes of each type of cannabis extract. Hemp seed oil is mainly prized for its nutritional value, but hemp flower extract is used for its purported medical qualities. Cooking with either substance therefore requires an understanding of the taste profiles, benefits, and detractors of both hemp seed and hemp flower extract.
Many chefs liken hemp seed oil to olive oil or any other vegetable oil commonly used in cooking. It doesn’t have a very pronounced flavor profile, and it’s easy to drizzle or even cook with at low temperatures. Hemp flower oil, however, has a very strong flavor whether it contains CBD, THC, or any other cannabinoid, and its exact taste profile varies widely depending on the terpenes present and the extraction process used.
Amateur cannabis cooks would be cautioned to use sparing amounts of cannabis flower oil. The omega fatty acids and essential nutrients in hemp seed oil, however, make it the perfect garnish to use liberally on salads, meats, or stir frys.
Does CBD oil get you high?
During the early days of the industry, it was common to say that CBD was “non-psychoactive.” Since then, we’ve learned that this term isn’t as applicable to cannabidiol as we once thought. On the other hand, it’s certainly true that CBD is non-intoxicating; it provides many of the same benefits of THC-rich cannabis without the high.
Tasty terpenes with unique effects
In addition, each of the terpenes present in cannabis oil provides a special effect that adds a unique layer to your vaping, smoking, or ingesting experience. We’ve only just started to scratch the surface when it comes to terpene science, but it’s starting to seem like each terpene has as much potential as any of the discovered cannabinoids. Now is certainly an exciting time to get onboard the terpene trend, and enjoying Secret Nature flower is the best way to experience the power of terpenes no matter where you might live.
Many CBD products don’t contain the full terpene profile present in cannabis flower, which needlessly diminishes their potential. Since Secret Nature CBD flower represents the true power of the supreme cannabis calyx in full bloom, however, it naturally contains the full terpene profile present in hemp. These terpenes are what make each Secret Nature flower strain taste so great, and they also might hold the key to Cannabis sativa‘s therapeutic future.
