If it does smell of anything, it may have a slightly earthy, natural aroma; the sort of thing you would expect from any plant-based health and wellbeing product. Though this could also be the faintest of smells coming from the carrier oil, rather than the active ingredients!
One of the regular questions is, does CBD oil smell like weed? Some people even become concerned about using it in case their breath smells like they’ve been smoking pot!
The natural materials used to produce CBD are only taken from specific species of this plant, cultivated and processed to avoid a chemical called THC. (THC is the component of recreational drugs that creates the sensation of being “high”).
This expert manufacturing process – under carefully regulated lab conditions – generally makes CBD odourless.
If you buy CBD oil for less medically supported suppliers – who are not as scrupulous in their sourcing and production methods – the situation may be different. The purity, strength and even smell of your CBD oil could vary widely. Also, if they use hemp oil as a carrier, then you may have a CBD product that has the familiar “tang” of weed in its scent.
Clearly then, the non-intoxicating and pure components used to manufacture CBD are already different from strong-smelling and psychoactive cannabis bi-products.

It has a slightly sweet smell and taste but barely discernible.
When we tested the big brands, roughly 90% of them had full-spectrum CBD and most had a distinct weed smell.
Now, in some states, marijuana is legal.
There are three common options:
Finally, the second type of CBD. Full Spectrum CBD.
It can also degrade more quickly since there is organic plant material in the bottle.
