Check out this product review of the Unflavored Strainz CBD 300™ Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture. Since trying the flavored ones, I’ve been curious what Strainz’s unflavored hemp oil tasted like, and I was finally able to try it.
Chris and Hugh Hempel founded Strainz in 2013 as a way to provide quality hemp derived CBD products for their own children who had a rare genetic disease. Their hard work and unique origin story stands behind a strong CBD company with delicious, delicious CBD tinctures – but how will it taste when unflavored?
Unflavored Strainz CBD 300 Full Spectrum Tincture Review
Strainz’s use of full spectrum hemp extract is absolutely necessary for anyone that’s looking for all the benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive part of the high. While there definitely isn’t enough tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in Strainz’s CBD line of products to get you high, the full spectrum products do contain legal amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in conjunction with cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG), and of course cannabidiol (CBD). What the presence of that THC means is that the cannabis entourage effect can shine – that’s where different cannabinoids work together to have a compounded effect on your endocannabinoid system.
Taste: I really enjoy the fact that the oil base for Strainz’s CBD tinctures is hemp oil – which just seems like it belongs with full spectrum hemp extract. Prior to trying Strainz, I had never had hemp oil before in the raw. My palate may have been blessed with hemp oil used in cooking or baking in the past, but I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from an unflavored hemp oil tincture. To be honest, it almost tastes like water to me. There was zero after taste with the unflavored oil and its initial taste wasn’t unpleasant in any way – in fact it was refreshing like a cup of ice water is. I plan on keeping my tincture in the fridge now so I can have the cold refreshing blast of ice water when I use it. Really, both the taste and the texture of the oil are exquisite and a sharp contrast to some almost greasy products I’ve tried over the years.
Feel: Just like with my other reviews of Strainz CBD 300 tinctures, I used a whole dropper aimed to give me my standard recommended dose of 10mg CBD. This is the right number for CBD newbies to start with and I use it to keep my CBD tolerance down, as I do for all of my tolerances – even caffeine. Many people describe their THC-related highs as saying they feel lighter. When I try good CBD, I notice that I feel looser. It’s easier for me to sit up straight and it’s easier for me to write or find the motivation to do other things that sometimes seem like a chore. I took this CBD-granted opportunity to stretch for the first time in a week. That feeling you get after stretching where you feel limber in the body and accomplished in the mind? That’s the kind of close to the loose feeling that I’m describing.
Summary: This is only the second unflavored tincture that I’ve ever tried in my life and I can definitely say from my experiences that unflavored doesn’t mean no flavor. It means that the natural flavor will come out. In the case of Strainz CBD 300 – that unflavored flavor is perfect for my palate and it’s so neutral that I’m almost 100% sure that it’ll be good to the reader’s palate too. Sure I’m not a world renown chef that makes money off of taking such bets on the palates of strangers, but I try. At $34.95, this is not a bad price for an unflavored 300mg CBD tincture and it’s available directly from the Strainz website. The great thing about the Strainz unflavored and natural tincture is that it’s available in concentrations all the way from 300mg all the way up to 10000mg CBD. The latter is recommended for those with a specific ailment that they’re aiming to treat, while the former is great for any beginner that isn’t looking for added flavor no matter how natural it is. Sometimes, having unflavored tincture is the best because it’s easier to add to food or work into your daily routine without disrupting a meal. I can honestly say that this taste is water neutral while the effects are anything but neutral.
