does cbd oil smell like weed

The only way you could hypothetically get an identical aroma is with the use of chemicals, and if you know anything about us, you know that is really not our way and not anything we are ever going to do.

All our dry flower products, and indeed any other CBD products you get from us, will always smell beautiful, because we’re people who are very fond of sensual pleasures, we like our sinuses to be softly stroked by the sweetest of scents, and we know you do too.

With the CBD version of Purple Haze, the terpene profile cannot be identical, but we make sure it’s as near as dammit.

Basically, our priority in the cultivation of CBD strains is to ensure that the CBD count is where we claim it to be, and that the trace THC levels stay within the limitations set out for us by EU law.

Purple Haze cannabis, for example, is heavy in caryophyllene, which gives that well known peppery, spicy scent, and myrcene, which provides that famed herbal aroma recognisable in most marijuana strains.

Stable genetics are the other important factor when it comes to CBD smelling like its THC heavy counterparts, with the possibility for differences in phenotypes, but we try and avoid that.

That’s why anything that we produce, we smell test, to check it makes us feel sublime, and to ensure it will make you feel much the same way!

CBD Isolate is usually just CBD and a base oil.

Um. that’s the part of your brain in charge of sense of smell!

With CBD Isolate, there’s very little if any scent.

CBD by itself has no smell.

If it’s full-spectrum or in hemp oil, yes.

If anything, you’re likely to smell the base oil depending on what they use.

On its own, delta 8 THC doesn’t have much of a smell. Again, it’s the terpenes in cannabis that are largely responsible for its skunky odor. In order to make delta 8 extracts, these terpenes need to be removed during production. Therefore, raw delta 8 THC has no smell to it.

Most of these products will not have much of a weed smell. However, some manufacturers choose to include or add terpenes to their broad-spectrum oils. These products can, indeed, smell like marijuana.

What is CBD Oil?

Terpenes are the compounds responsible for most of the skunky cannabis smell, so if you’re purchasing an oil infused with terpenes, you can expect that it might smell like marijuana.

Different types of CBD oil have other benefits, though. If you’re concerned about legality, you’ll want to use either a broad-spectrum or a CBD isolate oil.

Our bodies produce a number of cannabinoids called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids found in marijuana and some other plants interact with this same system, causing different effects.
