CBD capsules are one of the most convenient ways of consuming CBD oil, especially for those who dislike the taste of CBD oil, which can be quite disagreeable. They also make it easy for you to measure an accurate dose, which is particularly useful in treating a number conditions.
It is worth noting, however, that as the CBD in capsules is absorbed via the digestive system – as opposed to CBD oil, which is absorbed via the mouth – it is not the most efficient method of taking CBD. This means you may potentially need a higher dose than if you were to, say, take CBD oil sublingually.
As capsules allow you to get your daily intake of CBD via an easy-to-swallow pill form, they are a popular option for those of us who are always on the go, as well as those who are simply looking for the most convenient way to add CBD oil into their daily routine.
To make CBD capsules, liquid softgels or capsules, which are usually made from natural and vegan-friendly ingredients, are infused with CBD oil. The CBD oil used usually made from high-CBD, low-THC cannabis (or hemp, as it is often called). Full spectrum CBD oil also contains trace levels of THC, other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids.
CBD is derived from cannabis via various extraction techniques. These include C02 extraction, solvent (ethanol) extraction, and oil (olive, hemp seed, etc.) extraction.
As CBD capsules can be taken discreetly at any time, they make a particularly convenient way to introduce CBD into your wellness routine. It also makes them useful for discreetly treating such conditions as anxiety, depression and arthritis, as well as managing pain.
Due to CBD’s potent anti-inflammatory properties, CBD capsules may also be beneficial in keeping inflammation at bay throughout the day, whilst taking one before bed will allow the effects to continue overnight.
The suggested serving is one capsule/10 mg once or twice a day, or as needed. Different brands have different CBD levels, so it is always advisable to start off slow and increase dosage as you see fit and until the desired effect has been reached.
