If you prefer a product without any 'essential oil' used for a scented fragrance, the unscented 'CBGa' oils will smell different than the unscented 'CBG' oils, but they all smell like cannabis (hemp or marijuana).
The unscented 'CBGa' oils are the most "hempy" smelling of all our products. It has an earthy aroma with a secondary scent of recently cut and partially dried organic materials, such as grass, hay or leaves.
As it quickly soaks into the skin (10-15 minutes), it starts taking on a mildly spicy herbaceous and woodsy aroma. Which will get even spicier and stronger as it dries into the skin. The smell can last for a few hours to several hours, depending on how much is applied. Remember, a few drops of oil is all it takes to cover a small area.
Keep in mind that all scented 'CBGa' salves and oils will also have that same spicy hemp smell as an undertone aroma (or secondary note) of the actual essential oil fragrance, used to scent your product. CGBa tends to make the primary scent stronger and spicier.
On the other hand, the scented 'CBG' oils and salves will stay more true to the primary aroma of the chosen essential oil, used for the fragrance.
After processing the hemp flower with heat, the unscented 'CBG' oils created will take on a mildly roasted nut butter (or nutty oil) aroma. The strongest strength 'CBG' oils smell like nearly burnt popcorn with roasted nut butter poured on it.
The unscented 'CBGa and CBG Combo' oils and salves are well, in between. The fragrances exhibit a little of both aromas described above, but not too much of either.
The MCT oil itself is nearly colorless and odorless. So, there is no 'coconut' smell at all, in any of our products. Here is the COA for the Organic MCT Oil that we use in all QuickZen products.
