CBD capsules and pills are rapidly gaining popularity as a means to take CBD daily. Because of their small size, they are very portable and great to keep in a purse, duffle, glovebox, or medicine cabinet. Studies show that more than half of all Americans take some kind of daily pill, so working them into your routine is simple. CBD capsules are also a great bang for your buck when trying to keep your CBD costs down. Because you’re not paying for additional “fluff” such as oils, bottling, edibles, etc, a higher percentage of the cost you pay can go toward the actual CBD extracts themselves. With varying CBD dosages available, the flexibility in choosing a dose that works for you can be very appealing. We strongly recommend CBD capsules or pills as primary or secondary source of CBD for your daily routine.
Are there any recommended types of capsules or pills? We typically recommend starting with CBD gel caps, as they are the easiest to swallow and also tend to have smaller dosages per pill, so they’re easier to dose to your particular need, such as these CBD Soft Gels by Freed.
What are the benefits of CBD gel capsules and pills?
For starters, the portability and storability of pills make them very convenient. But the bigger draw to capsules and pills is that many of them can incorporate other helpful supplements depending on your desired effect. These Medterra CBD Melatonin dissolvable tablets are great for people who need a little something extra to help them sleep through the night, while one of our personal favorites is the Global Xtracts Capsules with Curcumin, as the added Turmeric concentration can help with inflammation.
Do CBD Capsules expire? Yes, CBD capsules can expire, but they typically have a longer shelf life than oils/edibles - usually in the 6-12 month range. However, like all products, we strongly recommend that you go by the products “best by” date and that you safely dispose of any products that appear dated or that you might not be sure about.
Are CBD Capsules more effective than oil & other forms of CBD?
Long story short, “not typically.” While every person is unique in the way they react to different forms of CBD, we have found that there are no significant differences in the digestibility or bioavailability of oral CBD in different forms. However, due to the nature of pills or capsules, it’s possible that CBD capsules, being easier to keep a consistent routine with, could be beneficial in making sure that the CBD levels inside your body remain more constant than with other mediums.
Yes, though the exact effects that each has is still being studied. CBD Isolate does not contain any levels of THC, so for those who are sensitive to THC or would just rather avoid it altogether, CBD isolate capsules such as Medterra CBD Gel Capsules are a great option. There are, however, many who believe that the additional cannabinoids and terpenes found in full spectrum CBD has some benefits in the bioavailability of CBD, and thus prefer full spectrum (with THC, but still less than 0.3%) or Broad Spectrum CBD (CBD plus other terpenes, but without THC) such as the high quality Incann Full Spectrum CBD Capsules.
