Why is it difficult to find tasty hemp oil? In this article, we’ll get into why some hemp CBD oil may taste weird, how to tell if hemp oil has gone bad, and where you can find tasty hemp oil.
The answer may not be as straightforward as you think. The CBD boom of 2019 brought a TON of new brands and product lines into the market, but not all of these brands make quality products.
Why Does My Hemp Oil Taste Weird?
The first thing we need to talk about is what’s known as a carrier oil. Carrier oils are oils added to hemp products, like a CBD tincture, to thin out and distribute the CBD extract.
Hemp extract is a thick, earthy oil that is literally sucked out of the hemp plant. The flowers, stalks, and leaves of the hemp plant contains the most CBD in the entire plant.
Parts like the hemp seeds, while healthy in good fats, actually contain no CBD. Be careful, because some companies sell hemp seed oil under the guise of CBD oil – just to make a sale. You can read more about hemp seed oil vs CBD oil here.
These oils all come with a distinct taste. Quality brands, like New Phase Blends, put a lot of effort into making sure their tasty hemp oil not only tastes good, but works well too. It costs more money in production funds to create a truly tasty hemp oil, so some companies just skip the tasty part.
The end result in skipping that step is a really bitter, and poor tasting CBD product.
Another reason that your hemp CBD oil tastes bad is the fact that it could have gone past the shelf life. All CBD products have a shelf life. High quality CBD that is manufactured properly has a shelf life of over two years! Poorly made hemp CBD oils, on the other hand, can go bad within months.
It is critical in the hemp industry to spend the money to make sure your products are the best quality possible. This not only affects the taste, but it affects how much relief you will get from using the product.
We all want a relief of some type, that’s why we are using CBD.
Let’s get into how to tell if your hemp oil has gone bad.
How to Tell If Hemp Oil Has Gone Bad
We’ve all done it. Take a sip of something, or a nibble of something, and immediately you can tell it’s rancid. Gross!
Remember, CBD takes a long time to go bad – if made properly. Chances are if you purchased some hemp oil within the last couple months, there is NO REASON it should go bad. If it did, never buy from that brand again. That is unacceptable.
Hemp CBD oil should have an earthy taste, kind of like nuts or even grass. If your product doesn’t use flavoring it should taste like this.
If it uses flavoring, it should (obviously) taste like the flavoring listed on the label.
If your tasty hemp oil has gone bad, it will taste ‘off.’ It may have a sour taste, or even an extra bitter and tangy taste. This is a sure sign of how to tell if your hemp oil has gone bad.
You might also notice a change in the coloring. CBD oil tinctures need to be kept out of the light, and should always be stored in a dry, cool place like a cabinet. Here is an example of some samples by New Phase Blends that were left under an LED light all night:
These samples aren’t necessarily bad, but they sure look crazy. Look at the neon colors? You see, hemp extract reacts to light in weird ways.
If your hemp oil looks like this, you should probably just toss it. Better safe than sorry. For those of you wondering, no, we did not distribute these samples 🙂
Premium Hemp Oil and Gummies
So, where can you find some tasty hemp oil or hemp CBD gummies? There are many different reputable CBD shops online. Just make sure you buy from a premium brand, not from a brand that makes bad hemp oil.
Did you know in the summer of 2020, the FDA did a test on a ton of different CBD products? They wanted to test the content of the CBD product vs. that product’s label.
The results were astounding. Roughly 21% of all items tested were either under-dosed, or contained ZERO CBD.
Don’t fall victim to this nonsense. Make sure you buy from a reputable dealer. Look for phone numbers (and call them to make sure they answer), reviews, and QR codes that link to a third-party lab test.
These QR codes are scannable via your cellphone, and will tell you the exact CBD content of that particular product.
