CBD capsules and CBD softgels are small, convenient pills made with CBD oil and various other natural ingredients that are usually taken with water or some other form of liquid. CBD capsules can range in concentration and strength. Unlike tinctures, CBD pills are metabolized through the digestive system. The digestive process is relatively slow, which means it can take up to an hour for the effects of CBD capsules and softgels to kick in. While CBD pills work slower than tinctures, the effects normally last for quite some time. The effects of CBD induced by capsules typically lasts 12 to 24 hours. At Mindful Medicinal Our capsules are made with a full-spectrum extract derived from hemp. Each capsule is packed with 25mg activated cannabinoids that are sure to bring you comfort and balance.
Benefits of CBD Capsules
Full-spectrum CBD is extracted using the whole hemp plant, so that includes a broader range of cannabinoids such as CBD, CBN, CBDA, CBDV, and .03% THC. Full-spectrum products have all the benefits CBD isolate delivers however, with a full spectrum CBD product, you receive what is being called the “entourage effect.” Studies are finding that the inclusion of these cannabinoids amplifies the benefits (one study showed that the body could only process a certain amount of CBD isolate, but with the addition of these other compounds, more CBD could be processed more easily). Capsules can also help to improve sleep, reduce anxiety, reduce stress, ease pain, reduce inflammation, and more.
Unlike raw extracts or oil tinctures, the amount of CBD you’re taking is pre-measured. So, there is less guesswork on proper serving size when you take CBD pills. CBD capsules are also easy to consume with water and can be swallowed down in seconds with your current vitamin supplements, which makes them easy to work into any morning routine. Many individuals do not like the taste of CBD oil, which can be described as grassy and earthy. Capsules and softgels are generally flavorless, which allows you to avoid the taste of CBD oil as well.
How to Use CBD Capsules
If you’re new to CBD, we always recommend starting with a lower serving size first and increasing from there. You can start with capsules that offer 25mg of CBD per pill and take one capsule per day to start. If you’re not seeing the results you were hoping for, you can increase the amount of capsules you take by one per day until you start to fully experience the effects and benefits CBD can provide. If you are concerned with the trace amounts of THC, continue using CBD isolate products in your regiment.
To achieve the full benefits that CBD capsules have to offer, we would recommend taking them every day as part of your daily routine. Daily consumption of CBD capsules will help to sustain a level of CBD in your body, which can stimulate your endocannabinoid system to produce a greater reaction to cannabinoids like CBD. Fortunately, one of the benefits of capsules is that they are very easy to take, which makes working them into your daily routine convenient.
