If you are new to CBD or looking to spice up your tincture, there are many options to customize the flavor. You can use terpenes, essential oils, food-grade ingredients, and more!
Terpenes are natural flavors found in cannabis strains. They help give the plant its distinctive scent and taste, so they are a perfect way to add flavor to your CBD tincture.
You can add terpenes to your tincture by multiplying the amount of CBD oil in the bottle (in milliliters) by 2% and adding that amount of terpene concentrate. You can also mix different terpenes together to create unique, signature tastes like Pineapple Express and Sour Diesel!
Essential oils are a great option for flavoring your tincture, and they can be used in conjunction with terpenes or infused into other edible products. Some people even use them to enhance the flavor of their favorite beverages, such as smoothies and ice cream.
Flavoring your tincture is easy and safe. Just shake the bottle and stir in the terpenes, essential oils, or other ingredients you want to add.
Using Mint to Mask the Taste
If you’re not a fan of the taste of your tincture, you can try putting a mint in your mouth to mask the smell and flavor of it. The essential oils in mint can help dampen the earthy taste you might get when swallowing your tincture.
You can also mix your tincture with something else that has a concentrated flavor, like honey. This will help you get the most out of your tincture dose, and it will also mask the taste.
