The claims about what CBD can do for you are wide, broad, and largely still undefined by researchers. Yet, there are many user testimonies that faithfully back the beneficial side effects CBD provides their bodies. CBD companies are beginning to position their products to be more in line with what patients are already used to consuming, namely pills. Capsules are now being filled with hemp-derived CBD extract so that consumers can take CBD alongside their daily vitamins. But what are the potential benefits of CBD? And what are the potential benefits of putting it inside a capsule? Read on to learn the basics about CBD and the many forms it comes in.
As mentioned before, there is still a lot to be learned with further scientific research into CBD. However, there is also a lot of evidence that is growing and becoming hard to ignore. There are a handful of common ailments that users describe CBD helping them manage on a regular basis.
Many people who are venturing into the world of CBD products for the first time start with using a CBD topical. A CBD topical can be applied to a small area of the body and sinks in skin-deep, instead of entering the body’s bloodstream. When applied in this fashion, it is thought that CBD works to relieve any inflammation in that area and can provide pain relief vicariously. Many people use it for sore muscles, scrapes, burns, and any other general skin irritation or rashes.
If people are turning to CBD for benefits that go deeper than just skin-level though, they often turn to CBD tinctures, oils, or edibles. All of these CBD products are typically ingested in some fashion and allowed to be absorbed completely into the body’s bloodstream. From there, CBD interacts with receptors in the endocannabinoid system in the body. Some of the effects users have reported experiencing when they inhale or ingest hemp-derived CBD is a sense of anxiety relief. Although it is already understood that CBD is non-psychoactive, it can alter the way endocannabinoid receptors interact with each other. This in turn has led to some users experiencing relief from the symptoms of anxiety.
Since CBD is non-psychoactive, it is commonly referred to as being a non-intoxicating alternative medicine. A lot of pharmaceutical prescriptions can have intoxicating side effects, and more patients are trying CBD instead. Depending on why CBD is being taken and what effects are being sought, it could be a good replacement for common medication for pain and anxiety. However, it is also highly recommended that you consult your medical provider before you start taking CBD on a regular basis. CBD is known to interact with certain pharmaceutical medications, specifically those with the “grapefruit warning”. So you should do thorough research and consultation before adopting CBD as a potential medication.
If you have found the effects of CBD to be beneficial for you, then you may have already heard about CBD capsules. But you might not know what the benefits of them are outside of the obvious familiarity factor. So why is CBD oil now added to pills and capsules?
CBD capsules offer a consistent method for dosing CBD orally. Today’s common CBD capsule contains anywhere between 10mg to 25mg of CBD extract per capsule. However, it is generally recommended to start with a low dose and gradually build on that to find the optimal dose of CBD for you. With capsules, it is especially easy to measure out your daily dose of CBD and increase or decrease it as needed.
CBD capsules are popular because they are familiar, easy to use, and don’t make a mess. If you already have a pill schedule established, it can be quite easy to add CBD capsules to the routine. CBD capsules are taken orally, usually with a bit of water to wash them down, like a daily vitamin. They then deliver CBD to your body once the pill is ingested, with an onset of anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour and lasts for a few hours.
CBD capsules can be a discreet way to relieve symptoms you may struggle to manage throughout the day. They look like a common pill and deliver CBD efficiently to the body without leaving you with a feeling of being “high” or intoxicated. Taking a CBD capsule can be a simple solution for managing pain, inflammation, and other common ailments without drastically interrupting your day.
Another reason people are reaching for CBD capsules is that they usually contain little to no additional ingredients alongside the CBD extract. They tend to be more potent than a single dose of a CBD edible and do not include the additional sugar, calories, or ingredients.
Before you consider taking advantage of the potential benefits of CBD capsules, it’s important to ask for certified third-party laboratory analysis of the product so that you know exactly what you are taking. Since the FDA does not yet regulate CBD products, doing your own research as a consumer is essential. The third-party analysis will tell you what ingredients are included in the CBD capsule, as well as how much CBD is in each capsule. It will also tell you what additional hemp plant compounds may be included as well.
The CBD extract in capsules can come in a variety of forms, although it is generally derived from hemp plants in the US. This is mainly due to the legalization of industrial hemp in the 2018 Farm Bill, but also because hemp plants contain an overwhelming percentage of CBD compounds over other plant compounds. CBD is extracted from hemp plants with a couple of different methods, which results in either broad-spectrum extract, full-spectrum extract, or CBD isolate. Once you find which type of extract works well for you, you can then select a CBD capsule that will offer a consistent dose of this CBD extract in a convenient capsule.
One of the major benefits of adopting CBD capsules into your routine is that you can make your own CBD capsules with a CBD oil you already love to use. Most of the materials needed can be purchased from a common drug store or health food store. The entire process will take up to a few hours, but it can lead to the perfect custom CBD capsules, with just the right amount of CBD per pill for you. Unlike other CBD products, CBD capsules require little tools, extra materials, and skill to make them.
Overall, CBD capsules can be the perfect simple solution for dosing CBD on a regular basis. They are discreet, easy to take, and familiar for those new to CBD to approach. They also provide a consistent, high dose of CBD without any unnecessary additives. CBD capsules might be the perfect fit for you if you already take daily vitamins, but be sure to check in with your doctor before adding CBD to your health routine.
