The Rise of CBD-Infused Fragrances
The inclusion of health-giving cannabidiol (CBD) infusions in various product categories is accelerating. Segments include coffee, functional beverages and snacks, over-the-counter remedies, supplements, pet care, and home and personal products. In addition, according to Chemical Engineering, advanced extraction technology makes CBD molecules more accessible, facilitating increased creativity and flavor pairings for innovative infusions.
According to a recent Globe Newswire report, the CBD-infused products market is forecast to achieve a value of $165.7 billion by 2027. This growth would represent an astounding CAGR of 48.1% since 20221. As a result, dynamic brands that want to stay relevant can jump on the numerous opportunities CBD infusion represents.
What Is CBD?
CBD is a chemical found in the cannabis family and is distinct from hemp oil (cannabis sativa seed oil). Notably, the substance also differs from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which can cause a psychoactive response in users. Instead, CBD interacts with our endo cannabinoid neuroreceptors, regulating cell communication to help manage the immune system, mood, movement, and homeostasis.
As a result, the extract may help address problems such as anxiety, insomnia, pain, and inflammation. It can also help with conditions such as addiction and lack of focus and the symptoms of diabetes, epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). In addition, it may assist in appetite control and help relieve dry skin and certain inflammatory skin conditions.
Producing high-quality oil starts with cultivating legal industrial hemp containing less than 0.2% THC, which growers nurture to yield high CBD levels. The oil is then distilled from the plant using various techniques, typically CO2, alcohol, or solvent extraction. These processes leave behind just the CBD extract, which is then thoroughly quality tested.
Leverage Potentially Healthful and Healing CBD
Beyond the extract’s emollient and possible healthcare benefits, advantages include introducing more natural ingredients into products, adding therapeutic and tension-relieving properties to candles, and offering natural hemp-infused muscle rubs as an alternative to conventional deep-heating creams. In addition, the growth of CBD has inspired numerous cannabinoid-infused perfumes, such as Fresh Cannabis Santal and Boy Smells Kush.
Cannabis derivatives can replace other vegetative terpenes – volatile, aromatic plant compounds – the raw materials of scent profiles. Cannabis terpenes include sweet, sharp-smelling pinene; softly floral linalool; earthy, herbal myrcene, lemony limonene; woody and peppery caryophyllene; and hops humulene. In addition, different cannabis varieties comprise distinct terpenes. For example, Blue Dream offers high myrcene concentrations, Sour Diesel myrcene and limonene, and Lemon Kush, limonene.
However, while cannabis can include up to 200 terpenes, only a few occur in significant amounts, with even fewer picked up by our noses. Conveniently, while the familiar full-spectrum substance has a uniquely recognizable odor, pure cannabidiol oil has a minimal aroma. This quality makes it ideal for pairing with earthy, green fragrances such as musk, patchouli, and vetiver – akin to aromatherapy with added therapeutic benefits.
Discover CBD-Enhanced Fragrances
Fragrance brands embracing the trend include Aspen Apothecary, Heretic Parfums, Bel Rebel, Oxocon, Wellfounded Botanicals, and the Candle-Lite Company. Aroma profiles include floral, green, woody, and citrus scents, with notes of musk, hemp, lavender, grapefruit, vetiver, and vegetal, even hinoki (a cypress native to Japan), and coastal fog.
With imagination, the combinations are almost endless. So, mix pure CBD oil with Advanced Biotech’s range of natural, plant-based terpene aroma ingredients for exciting experimentation.
