Cannabis oil is a welcome alternative for patients who prefer not to smoke, and it still has all the benefits of the dried form. For example, cannabis oil helps reduce the pain of inflammation.
Its taste, however, isn’t always pleasant, but lucky for you, easy tips exist to disguise the flavour. See how the nine tips below mask the taste of cannabis oil.
1. Brew a Strong Herbal Tea
Herbal teas have a really strong flavour that overpowers that of the cannabis oil. Try mixing a mint flavour with honey or ginger with lemon. Think of it as a way of crafting tea blends’ natural aroma and flavour with that found in the plant. You’ve just created a relaxing experience.
2. Add Peppermint Extract
Like strong teas, peppermint has its own high-quality taste—it’s recognizable anywhere. After putting the oil under your tongue, have a spoonful of peppermint extract to wash away the marijuana taste. If a spoonful sounds like too much, take a few peppermint drops immediately after in similar fashion to ingesting the oil.
3. Put Honey under the Tongue
Honey is a sweet, thick, syrupy substance that will quickly relieve you of the marijuana kick. Place a few drops under your tongue while you’re taking your authorization. You can even add the honey to tea while you ingest the oil to combine the strong flavours of both substances and hide the hemp taste.
4. Have a Spoonful of Peanut Butter
Eating a spoonful of peanut butter before the drops will prepare your mouth for a new taste. Repeat and have another spoonful after the drops to cover up the taste again. The creamy texture combined with the peanut butter flavour will flow around the taste of oil to make it more bearable and less overwhelming.
5. Try Anything Savoury
A wide-ranging category of good foods to combat cannabis oil includes those with a savoury bite. Tone down the earthy flavour and take it with oil and fat-based foods, such as aioli, cheesy chips, and mashed potatoes. A few bites of those foods add a luxe touch to the grounded herb.
6. Slice up Banana
There’s nothing quite as distinct as the unique scent of a banana. Its indescribable taste makes everything around it smell and taste the same . This is ideal when you’re trying to conceal the harsh taste of cannabis. Add drops of oil directly to the banana or have one as a snack after.
7. Chocolate Squares
Enjoy a few squares of dark chocolate immediately after taking your authorization. Chocolate’s bitter taste instantly dulls the strong tang of cannabis oil. It’s precisely the bitter complex that makes the oil more manageable to have. Not to mention, a little bit of rich cocoa is hard to turn down.
8. Combine it with an Altoid
Sucking on a flavoured mint along with your drops is a simple trick for pleasing the palette. The earthy bitterness of cannabis is suddenly covered up by the refreshing mint, cinnamon, or wintergreen flavour of your choosing. Of course, you don’t need to stick to Altoids. Tic Tacs and other mints will do the trick too.
9. Brush Your Teeth Right Before
We all know brushing your teeth before a meal adds a distinctly unique taste to that food item. Apply the same concept right before you take your drops. Your taste buds will be more in tune with the stronger hint of toothpaste instead of being surprised by the oil’s bitterness.
