What does CBD taste like? A beginners guide.

Since CBD comes from hemp and is associated with cannabis, often people tend to think it will taste like marijuana. At Applied Botanics we use CBD isolate, terpenes, and Organic Golden Hemp oil, to ensure a natural, light taste that is not reminiscent of marijuana.

CBD & Terpenes

CBD is naturally occurring in hemp plants. When making CBD isolate we extract the CBD compound from the hemp plant until it is pure 100% CBD in a powdered form. There is no THC, or other compounds present in our CBD. We then add patent-pending terpenes to each formula to help enhance the natural abilities of CBD. Terpenes are chemical compounds that are found in all plants including hemp. This is what you taste and smell in CBD and other plants in general. To read more about terpenes check out our terpenes blog.

Our Products

Each product has a specific blend of terpenes to help with specific ailments.

Our Recovery tincture has the highest concentration of CBD at 3000mg. Recovery is scientifically formulated to help ‘recover’ from exercise, procedures, and daily aches and pains. Recovery’s terpenes include Alpha-Pinene (pain relief and inflammation), Humulene (anti-inflammatory), and Limonene (mood enhancement). Due to this blend of terpenes, Recovery has an earthy, woody aroma with hints of clove, hops and pine and a zesty citrus flavor with hints of rosemary and juniper. 

Tranquility is scientifically created for sleep. Some of the terpenes in Tranquility consist of Linalool (mood enhancement and sedation), Myrcene (relaxation and sedation), and Caryophyllene (anti-inflammatory) Tranquility has a spicy, woody, earthy aroma with hints of floral and lavender. The taste features hints of coriander, rosemary, and clove.

Comfort is designed for relaxation of the mind and body. CBD has been shown to reduce anxiety levels and Comfort uses all the power of CBD combined with relaxing terpenes. Some terpenes include Caryophyllene (anti-anxiety), Linalool (sedation), and Humulene (anti-inflammatory). Our Comfort blend consists of bright zesty aromas with hints of earthy woods. The flavor has notes of citrus and clove.

Vitality is formulated for immunity and invigoration. Some key terpenes include Myrcene (relaxation), Limonene (mood enhancement), and Humulene (anti-inflammatory). On the nose, you will smell fruity citrus notes of mango and lemon with a bit of pine. The flavor brings a fruity blend with hints of clove, and pine.

What our Customers are Saying

Neil A. has experienced migraine headaches for a long time, and decided to give our Recovery product a try. “So far I am pleased with the Recovery’s ability to limit my migraines AND not knock me out mentally. Side note… I’m a fan of the naturally flavored CBDs.”

Connor M. uses several of our products on a daily basis. “I use recovery before bed in either my protein shake or just under the tongue before I brush my teeth and hit the rack. Recovery helps me sleep peacefully and wake up refreshed, not groggy. This CBD has a nice robust earthy flavor that I absolutely enjoy. I have tried other cbd products that had terrible flavors or burnt taste  and I had to power through, but I look forward to my Applied Botanics everyday.”

Frank C. also loves the natural taste of our products. “Love the natural taste. Far better than anything else I have tried thus far. These products have an enhanced ability to be quickly absorbed into your system …. highly recommended.”

Kelly R. said, “I’ve tried a few products and have to say that I’m most impressed with the taste of this one. The rest I’ve tried have been down right nasty. This stuff tastes natural.”
