If you’ve ever tried flavored CBD oils, you may already be a fan! We certainly think flavored CBD Oil can take CBD to a whole new level! While we’d hate to flatter ourselves, we put a lot of love and work into our flavored CBD oils (tinctures). In this blog, we’ll take a look at the ingredients in our delectable and extremely beneficial flavored CBD oil!
Natural above everything
Grassroots Harvest was started to share the passion & admiration we have for CBD products that are natural and pure. This is why we strive to stand out from other brands by making our products the way nature intended. That means avoiding artificial ingredients. Our flavored CBD oils are no exception. We use full-spectrum CBD and terpenes for flavoring to make our products resemble the actual plant as much as possible!
With that in mind, here’s our ‘secret formula’ for the best flavored CBD oil on the market!
Full-spectrum CBD is most sought after because of benefits it offers, potentially more than other types of CBD oils. This is because, during extraction, all cannabinoids are left inside full spectrum CBD, even trace amounts of Delta 9 THC. Delta 9 THC quantities must not exceed 0.3% in order to be federally legal. CBD isolate and broad-spectrum are different because they do not contain Delta 9 THC. If you want to learn more about this, head to our article Full-Spectrum CBD vs Broad-Spectrum CBD vs CBD Isolate.
With full-spectrum CBD in mind, it’s also important that we explain what the ‘entourage effect’ is in cannabis lingo.
The entourage effect is the ideal ‘state of mind’ that all cannabis/CBD users strive towards. Although the entourage effect is considered to be just a simple theory, it’s still something that we strongly believe in. The theory is that CBD unleashes its full potential when taken together with the other cannabinoids present inside the cannabis plant. This means that full-spectrum CBD is the perfect type of CBD product for experiencing the entourage effect.
Full-spectrum CBD is fantastic for those looking to get a taste of the plant the way it exists in nature. We want our customers to achieve that entourage effect, which is why we use full-spectrum in our flavored CBD oil.
Here at Grassroots Harvest, we love terpenes – so much so that we add them to almost all of our products! Terpenes give cannabis strains their own, unique effects and are responsible for carrying the flavor & smell of cannabis. When you use our flavored CBD oils, it’s almost the same as the natural plant. Apart from giving flavor, terpenes also come with a huge list of benefits to our body. Some terpenes have the ability to lift the mood and provide energy, and others are more relaxing and mellow. Terpenes have been used in traditional, herbal medicine for ages. The best part of it all is that they’re natural, so you don’t have to worry about ingesting artificial flavors!
We sweeten our flavored CBD oil with Stevia for a natural sweet taste that isn’t high in calories. For people who need to watch their sugar intake, Stevia is a great option as it won’t cause blood spikes.
To make a rich consistency that abounds with flavor and potency, apart from full-spectrum CBD, stevia, and terpenes, we also use MCT oil, sunflower oil, and additional natural flavors.
MCT oil is from coconut oil. It has been proven to be quite helpful to the body with inflammation, reduced/increased appetite, and energy – and anything natural that can benefit the body is most definitely something we’d like to use in our own products!
CBD oil is arguably the most popular method of ingesting CBD for many, which means that it’s essential that you have as many options as possible to make your CBD journey a whole lot easier! Our flavored CBD oils are a game-changer because of the natural ingredients that we use and our hard-to-believe prices!
