cbd oil capsule vs drops

Capsules filled with CBD isolate or CBD oil have to be broken down by your stomach before it can enter your body. As a result, you may not feel immediate relief with a capsule, which can be frustrating. In addition, because CBD capsules are filled with other agents (like hemp oil or extra virgin olive oil), the potential for unwanted side effects exists. Be sure to understand all the ingredients in your CBD oil before deciding to take one.

Because plants can be engineered for multiple purposes, CBD oils can be different in the bottle. Full spectrum CBD oils contain multiple cannabinoids while staying under the federal THC limit of 0.3%. Broad spectrum CBD oil also contains multiple cannabinoids, with only trace amounts of THC. CBD isolate oil contains only one cannabinoid: cannabidiol.

On the downside, CBD oil tinctures may come with a natural taste. Even with flavoring, many people describe the natural flavor as “wood-like” or “earthy.” If this flavor profile hits your palate wrong, it may be difficult to take a tincture. Another con of CBD oil tinctures is they don’t travel very well. If you take a CBD oil in your carry-on luggage, you may get additional questions about its contents. In this situation, you may want to consider flying with CBD capsules versus CBD oil.

The Advantages of CBD Capsules

Much like CBD oils, CBD capsules were created to make taking CBD oil an easy and convenient process. However, they are made using a process completely different from traditional CBD oil tinctures.

CBD oil tinctures are arguably the most common and recognizable CBD product on the market today. With one full dropper, you can be exposed to a full spectrum of cannabinoids with potentially beneficial properties, as determined by peer-reviewed medical studies.

Like all CBD products, collecting CBD oil starts after plants are harvested. After collection from the fields, industrial hemp plants grown for their high concentration of cannabinoids go straight to the lab for CBD extraction. Using methods including CO2 extraction, the result is a liquid CBD oil that is full of cannabinoids.

In addition, droppers allow you to decide how much you want to take with every dose. If you don’t notice an effect of taking a CBD oil, you may increase the amount of your tincture serving. Conversely, if you don’t like the effects of a stronger CBD oil, you can reduce the tincture amount without buying a new bottle of CBD oil. This allows you to experiment until you find the right amount for you.

We’ve outlined the main differences between our CBII CBD oil and capsules in this handy table below. These differences just relate to CBII products, not capsules or tincture oils as a whole:

Two of the most popular ways to take CBD is as an oil either in a tincture that is delivered in drops under the tongue via a liquid dropper bottle or in capsule form.

Our CBII CBD oils are higher in strength than our capsules and are also suitable for vegans (our capsules are not because they contain gelatine).

As there are some differences between CBD capsules and CBD oils taken via a dropper bottle, you can weigh up the differences between the two as well as consider what’s best for your individual lifestyle before making your choice.
