CBD CAPSULES, CBD SOFTGELS AND CBD PILLS
CBD capsules, softgels and pills, what’s the difference?
What is the difference between CBD capsules , CBD softgels (gelcaps) and CBD pills. Below is a clear explanation of the differences between the two.
According to the pharmaceutical definition of a capsule, it is a solid and accurate way to consume a prescribed dose .
The medicine itself is in pill form, but the supplement or medicine is enclosed in a hard or softly soluble container.
This container is usually made from gelatin. Capsules are often used when the drug cannot be compressed into a solid (pill).
Raw CBD and Full Spectrum CBD are not sold as pills because it cannot be compressed into a solid!
Unlike the capsule, there is nothing interesting about the pill.
It is simply a medicine and / or medicine that is compressed tightly into a round solid shape with the intention of making it as small as possible in the hope that it will be easier to swallow.
Pills usually contain a concentrated extract, in crystal form, of a specific cannabinoid.
CBD Softgel capsules are very similar compared to capsules in that they are both surrounded by an outer shell, usually gelatin, which is exactly how they got their name.
Gelatin capsules = gel caps. So in completely soft gelatin capsules. A translucent bowl with a dark golden hue is a standard CBD capsule. These are almost always filled with hemp oil and sometimes olive oil as a filler.
CBD-CAPSULES VERSUS CBD-OLIE
The choice of using CBD capsules as a dietary supplement is not only considered to be faster, but it is also cleaner and easier compared to CBD oil .
That’s because while they offer similar benefits, measuring the correct dosage is easier with pills and capsules than with oil.
Basically, you avoid overdosing problems when using capsules and pills.
With CBD oil you have to take an exact number of oil drops to achieve the desired results. This is sometimes inconvenient, but it also creates room for mistakes.
Because CBD pills and capsules contain an exact amount of CBD oil, they are therefore convenient and easier to take in the correct dosage.
HOW TO TAKE CBD CAPSULES
It is recommended to take CBD pills and / or orally by placing the capsule on the tip of your tongue and swallowing it with +/- 250 ml of water.
To experience the best results, we recommend that you take the same portion of CBD every day.
This ensures that your body enters a routine and is ready to take full advantage of the wealth support that CBD has to offer.
You can take these full spectrum hemp oil gel caps with food or with a glass of water. They can even be consumed on an empty stomach and do not cause any discomfort.
In addition, you can take CBD capsules everywhere and take them with you when you travel, at work or even when you are stuck in traffic.
So with CBD pills, you have no reason to miss the CBD intake. The gel caps are organic by nature, which means you can also use them if you are a vegetarian.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE BUYING ONLINE
With a reliable manufacturer, you can be sure that your CBD capsules are made from pure hemp extracts.
If you are ever in doubt about the quality of the CBD capsules, you can request the lab reports that the seller needs.
CBD capsules do not contain any preservatives and are offered in different CBD mg levels. These include:
– 10 mg – E.g. the Jacob Hooy CBD capsules
– 15 mg – Eg. the Sensi Seeds CBD capsules
– 25 mg – E.g. the Medihemp CBD capsules
The CBD capsules go up to 250 mg per capsule. These are very pricey and currently only available in the US market.
Also make sure that the CBD pills and capsules you choose are made from carefully grown hemp plants.
The hemp oils in these capsules are different from the hemp seed oil that you can buy at some of the pop-up medical marijuana stores.
Make sure they don’t contain THC (or at least below the legal level of 0.05%), which is responsible for the high feeling caused by marijuana.
CBD capsules that meet the legal standard never give a psychoactive effect.
Sometimes people sometimes think they are “high” because of the CBD, this is usually because CBD is soothing and sleep stimulating.
CBD capsules and softgels – The best way to take CBD?
CBD comes in many forms and each offers unique pros and cons. It is important to be aware of the differences so that we can be informed about the best options for our own circumstances.
But is there a best way to take CBD?
The reality is that different types of CBD products have different ideal conditions for their use. Sometimes pure oil is best – sometimes CBD capsules are ideal.
One thing is very clear: when it comes to convenience, CBD oil capsules are king!
What are all the benefits of CBD capsules?
After all, it doesn’t get much easier than swallowing a small pill! Our CBD oil capsules are very small, so they are easy to swallow even if you are struggling with larger pills.
CBD capsules are convenient for on-the-go use and are also quite discreet. You may get a weird appearance when you take a dropper full of CBD oil in public – but throw a CBD oil pill and no one will give you a second look.
Another great advantage of CBD capsules is exact dosages .
When using CBD oil and tinctures, you can get a fairly accurate picture of the dosage you are taking. But with CBD oil capsules, you know exactly what you are taking every time.
For example, our 25mg CBD pills contain 25mg CBD per serving. Knowing the exact CBD content is a huge advantage of CBD softgels.
CBD capsules are tasteless and odorless. That’s good news for people who may not enjoy the taste of CBD oil, or are concerned about the smell of their breath.
Pure CBD oil does not taste bad, but it has a pronounced taste. Most people describe the taste as earthy or grassy. It’s a bit of an acquired taste for some.
CBD gel capsules offer a tasteless and odorless option.
CBD capsules vs CBD oil – which is a better option?
Sorry folks, there is no “best” option in this comparison. Both CBD pills and pure CBD oil are excellent options, and each can beat the other under certain circumstances.
Let’s take a look at some pros and cons.
Pros – very handy, exact dosage, long shelf life, no taste or effects on the breath
Disadvantages – it takes longer to absorb in the body (because they have to dissolve first)
Advantages – absorbs very quickly, very adjustable dosage, often cheaper
Disadvantages – less convenient, has a taste / smell, more difficult to get an exact dosage
In short, there is no “best” option – because both are great!
Why not both?
The form of CBD you choose to use doesn’t have to be an all-deciding decision. Many of our customers choose to use different products.
Many people usually use CBD oil / tincture when they are at home, but they take CBD softgels with them on the go. This offers a best-of-both-worlds approach to the issue of CBD pills versus CBD oil.
Do you think hemp-derived natural remedy is an option for you, but not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’re here to help.
An introduction to CBD
This introduction discusses the two most common ways to take CBD: oral and topical.
Within these categories, there are several methods such as capsules , tinctures, creams and more. Don’t worry, we’ll walk you through this, it’s not as complex as it sounds.
Take the CBD orally
If you’ve never taken CBD before taking it, this is an easy place to start.
You are probably familiar with and may already be using capsules and pills, so taking CBD this way won’t feel too different.
In addition, dosing monitoring is easy with capsules as they are available in pre-measured sizes.
Dosage is important and a constant concentration makes it easy to figure out what works for you.
Many customers start with our 25mg SoftGel capsule and slowly increase in 25mg increments until they find their ideal dosage.
It may take 45 minutes or more for capsules to work in your system and then take several hours to complete.
You can also just take CBD oil, which is called a tincture. Generally, you consume this by placing it under your tongue and holding it there for a minute.
Some people even use it in their food or add a few drops to their favorite smoothie recipe.
Why choose a tincture?
It’s easy to adjust your dose by adding or subtracting a few drops, and it can work a little faster.
The third indigestible option is an edible, such as a chewing gum. These small, tasty pieces come in a variety of flavors and sizes, yet contain a CBD punch.
Oral products like our SoftGels, tinctures and Gems have a systemic effect, which means they work on your entire body.
The right time to take CBD
Before deciding which time of day is best for you, it is important to understand that the method of administration used for CBD changes when and how often to use it.
This is because each method is absorbed into the body differently, some faster than others, while some have a slow but long-lasting effect.
Timing and the effect of CBD
CBD users have presented several anecdotal reports on how CBD makes them feel.
Some say they feel energized after use, while others report it has a calming effect.
It’s useful to watch how CBD affects you when deciding the best time of day to use CBD.
Feeling energized? Choose to take it with your morning meal or at lunchtime, not only to feel better all day, but also to prevent insomnia at night.
If a calming effect is your typical experience, consider waiting until the evening meal to take CBD.
The effect of CBD can vary from person to person, so don’t be afraid to make changes to when and how you use CBD based on how you feel.
A health care professional working with cannabis products may provide additional insight into getting the best results.
What the research says about CBD
There has been a lot of discussion and research about CBD in recent years.
If this 2017 Review Trusted Source shows that much research has shown that it is a relatively safe treatment.
The studies analyzed in that review did not show that there is one universal dose of CBD that everyone should take.
Instead, it underlined the fact that different people (and different animals in the animal studies) respond to different doses of CBD.
Most human studies use dosages between 20 and 1,500 milligrams (mg) per day.
It is worth remembering that there is still much about CBD that we do not know.
As the cannabis industry grows, researchers are likely to do more research on cannabis, including marijuana and hemp , and its derivatives.
The amount of CBD you should take depends on a number of factors, including:
- your body weight
- the condition you are treating
- your individual body chemistry
- the concentration of CBD in each pill, capsule, drop or gummy
In other words, there are many variables that determine how much CBD to take. Before trying CBD, talk to your doctor about an appropriate dosage and possible risks.
If your doctor tells you how much to use, stick to their recommendation. This is especially important if you are taking a prescription drug containing CBD, such as Epidiolex, which is a form of seizure medication.
If your doctor does not recommend, it is best to start with a smaller dose and gradually increase it.
This may mean that you start with 20 to 40 mg per day. Increase the dose by 5 mg after a week. Continue this until you feel it is effectively treating your symptoms.
For example, you can start with 40 mg to treat severe pain. You can take 40 mg on days when you are in a lot of pain.
After a week, increase it to 45 mg and after a second week, use 50 mg. At this point, you may feel that your pain is bearable.
It may be wise to keep track of how much CBD you are taking and whether your symptoms are getting better. Write it on paper or in a note-taking app on your phone.
Start with a small dose of CBD and increase slowly until you achieve the desired effect.
How to calculate the dosage
Some products, such as CBD gummies, capsules, or pills, tell you how much is in a single serving. For example, the packaging on a bottle of CBD capsules may indicate that there is 5 mg of CBD per capsule.
If you use CBD oil, it probably comes in a dropper bottle. The packaging can indicate how much CBD is in a single drop. From there you can figure out how many drops to use.
Sometimes it’s more difficult to figure out how much CBD is in one drop, because the packaging specifies the total amount of CBD in the entire bottle, but not the amount that will be in a single drop.
A drop is about 0.05 milliliter (ml). That is, not a full dropper – just a single drop.
This means that a 10 ml bottle of CBD oil contains 200 drops. And if the packaging for that 10ml bottle says that the bottle contains 1000mg of CBD, each drop contains about 5mg of CBD.
So to have 20 mg of that type of CBD oil you have to take four drops.
Is it possible to take in too much CBD?
However, a 2019 study in mice raised some safety concerns about CBD’s potential for liver damage and its interactions with other drugs.
If you are currently on medication and want to try CBD, it is essential to discuss this with your doctor.
Very few side effects are known from CBD. However, when side effects do occur, they can include diarrhea, appetite changes, and fatigue.
Possible side effects
– changes in appetite
– changes in weight
If you are looking for a quick and easy way to buy CBD, you can find many CBD brands online. But make sure to research every brand before buying it.
While pure, genuine CBD is considered safe, fake and low-quality products can be dangerous.
CBD is not regulated by the FDA, so it is up to you to ensure that you only use high-quality products.
Look for products from a reputable brand with third-party testing and avoid companies with a history of inaccurate labeling.
If you find yourself the type of person who doesn’t necessarily enjoy the taste of raw, organic hemp oils (which are usually consumed under the tongue), the CBD capsule, money op or pill may be the solution for you as they are usually tasteless when they are swallowed quickly with water.
Talk to your doctor about CBD
To find out what dose of CBD to use, it’s best to speak to your doctor. While not all doctors can provide information about CBD – depending on the legislation in your country – some may be able to help you recommend high-quality dosages or brands.
Talk to your doctor before trying CBD, especially if you are currently on medication.
What are alternatives to CBD oil?
There are several ways to use CBD without any bad taste in the mouth and still experience the same effects.
Below are the best known and most used CBD alternatives:
Is CBD oil legal?
In short, yes. Since our Full Spectrum CBD oil contains less than 0.05% THC, it is completely legal in Europe and the USA.
Hemp-derived CBD products (with less than 0.3 percent THC) are legal at the federal level, but are still illegal under some state laws.
Marijuana-derived CBD products are illegal at the federal level, but are legal under some state laws.
Check the laws of your state and those of wherever you travel. Keep in mind that over-the-counter CBD products are not FDA approved and may be mislabeled.
Is CBD oil legal in the UK?
Yes. And because we also ship to the UK, you can rest assured that our CBD oil complies with the law where you are located.
Why is CBD oil legal?
Although CBD is cannabidiol and comes from the cannabis plant, it does not have any of the psychoactive properties of cannabis.
This means you can enjoy all the health benefits of daily CBD oil without breaking the law or experiencing a high.
Will I pass a drug test?
In short, no. But if you want to know more, we have an entire section of facts devoted to this FAQ.
Can you be tested positive for THC?
This is an important question for athletes and motorists. In the vast majority of cases, a drug test only checks for THC and not for CBD.
Since the CBD products we sell contain a negligible percentage of THC, it is very unlikely
that this will be positive in a test.
Therefore, no cases with a positive result are known to us. You can also drive a car if you use CBD with a negligible percentage of THC.
Will CBD oil make me high?
No, you don’t get high or feel ‘stoned’.
Our Full Spectrum CBD oil has been fully tested to ensure it contains less than 0.05% THC, so it has no psychoactive effects.
However, CBD oil is believed to support your overall health and well-being, but it is not a miracle cure and not a drug that can cure all your pain and or conditions.
