CBD products take many forms, giving you the freedom to experience its soothing effects anywhere you go. While some enjoy the similarity that hemp CBD joints and CBD vape cartridges share with classic smoking styles, others prefer simplicity. CBD capsules are straightforward and precise.
Dosing capsules is incredibly easy because they contain the same amount of CBD every time. CBD oil is great for those who want to estimate their dosage, but not every drop of tincture is the same size. Featuring consistency and the most accurate doses, let’s see what’s inside CBD capsules!
What are CBD Capsules?
CBD capsules are simply pills that contain isolate cannabidiol. You can take these capsules discreetly by mouth at any time of the day. The capsules deliver cannabidiol to the bloodstream by passing through the digestive system.
CBD comes from the leaves, stems, and flowers of the hemp plant. Inside our bodies, there is a complex system of receptors that can interact with CBD.
When you ingest CBD through methods like gummies or capsules, the compound interacts with those internal receptors and supports the endocannabinoid system. The ECS is a vital system for our well-being, and we feel better when it’s functioning as best it can.
In simple terms, CBD promotes calming effects across the body, including the mind. Its effects aid focus and mental clarity without any “brain-fog.” CBD pills and capsules do not induce the euphoric “high” associated with high doses of THC.
The best CBD capsules combine cannabidiol with other natural ingredients that benefit the body. Coconut powder is a popular additive due to its medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) and fatty acids. MCT oil and its sources, such as coconut powder, have been closely researched for their advantageous effects.
Are CBD Capsules Legal?
Yes, CBD capsules are legal. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp, which is the plant that we extract CBD from. Hemp is a cannabis plant, and the Farm Bill created clear distinctions between legal cannabis plants (hemp) and federally-illegal cannabis (marijuana).
Humans have used hemp for millennia, and in the past, it was indistinguishable from marijuana. Today, the federal government defines legal hemp as cannabis plants that have 0.3% THC or less. If there is more than 0.3% THC present, it is considered federally illegal marijuana.
Trace amounts of THC (0.3% or less) strengthen CBD’s non-psychoactive, relaxing, and mind-centering effects. Large doses can cause intoxication, which is why THC-rich marijuana is still illegal in many states.
If a poorly made CBD capsule contains more than 0.3% THC, it is illegal. But, it is the manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure their product contains the legal amount of THC. Choosing top-tier CBD capsules that don’t cut corners is the best way to ensure your product is safe and legal.
You’ll also want to ask the manufacturer for a certificate of analysis (COA). COAs are test results that list all of the ingredients in a product. They are made by a third-party lab that confirms the product’s label accurately describes what’s inside. To make sure you know exactly what’s in your CBD capsules, avoid companies that can’t readily supply you with their COAs.
How Do CBD Capsules Work?
Like CBD oil or edibles, capsules have to make their way through our digestive system before they can interact with our cannabinoid receptors. Once the CBD reaches our bloodstream, it starts to provide sensational relief to our bodies and minds. It usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour to feel the effects of CBD consumed orally.
CBD capsules don’t kick in as quickly as smoked or vaped products, but the effects last longer. While inhaled CBD works within 15 minutes, it lasts two to three hours. A CBD capsule takes more time to kick in, but the serene feelings will stay with you for 6-8 hours.
How long your capsules last and their strength partially depend on whether they contain full spectrum, broad spectrum, or isolate CBD. All hemp products fall into one of these three categories, which refer to the compounds working alongside CBD.
Full spectrum CBD contains everything extracted from hemp. This includes many beneficial compounds and trace amounts of THC. When you ingest all these compounds simultaneously, they boost each other’s effects and amplify CBD’s benefits. This is called the entourage effect.
Full spectrum hemp extract offers the strongest entourage effect, but it is also present in broad spectrum products. There is no THC in broad spectrum CBD, though there are other hemp-derived compounds.
For the purest form of CBD, isolate powder offers 99%+ CBD molecules. It is colorless, odorless, and flavorless, so you can easily add it to food or drink. It also is the perfect option for CBD capsules, as you can swallow it plain or open the capsule and add it to a meal!
Do CBD Capsules Work Better than CBD Oil?
Capsules aren’t better or worse than oil because each comes with unique benefits. It all depends on how you prefer to use CBD. Some of the most important factors to consider when choosing between CBD capsules and oil are:
- Time effects take to kick in
- How long effects last
If you want quick relief, CBD oil may be the ideal option for you. When you drop CBD oil under the tongue (sublingual), the compound is absorbed directly into the body, cutting out the time for your system to digest it. You can feel the effects of sublingual oil within 15-30 minutes of ingestion, making tincture a good choice for speedy relaxation.
Though you will feel the effects of sublingual CBD oil sooner than if swallowed, the experience won’t last as long. Swallowed CBD lasts 6-8 hours, while sublingual drops start to wear off around 4-6 hours after using them.
You can swallow both CBD oil and capsules, but some tincture may find its way underneath your tongue as you drop it into your mouth. This will help you feel the benefits more quickly, but if long-lasting effects are what you’re after, capsules might be the best product for you.
Many people enjoy the natural flavors of CBD oil, but the taste isn’t for everyone. If you want a quick dose of CBD as you’re rushing out the door or heading to bed, capsules are flavorless and portable. When taking CBD with a meal or drink, you can mix oil into your food more easily than capsules.
CBD capsules make dosing yourself easier than ever. Oil can be hard to measure since it is meant to be approximate. Capsules are designed to be more precise, and the dose of CBD stays consistent in each capsule.
How Many Capsules Should I Take?
How much CBD you should take depends on many factors, including:
- CBD per capsule
- How you plan on using CBD (for sleep, workout, lunch break, etc.)
- The quality of the CBD product
Since CBD capsules have to be digested, the effects are influenced by how long each person’s body takes to metabolize food. Weight can have a similar impact on how much CBD will be effective. Additionally, a 50 mg capsule’s effects will feel different than a 10 mg pill.
If you’re planning on taking CBD to get some sleep, you might take a different dose than if you were using it for morning meditation. Ideal quantities vary for each individual, and experimentation can help you figure out the best sleep dose.
Poor-quality CBD products contain pesticides, heavy metals, and solvents that don’t evaporate properly. Buying these types of products also increases the chance that they contain CBD hemp that contains more than the legal limit of THC.
Why Hollyweed CBD?
The absolute best CBD capsules come from Hollyweed CBD! Our capsules are 100% organic, all-natural, third-party tested. and filled with isolate CBD powder. We use hemp grown in the United States that is evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure it is safe and legal.
At Hollyweed, we make sure all our products are vegan and cruelty-free. Instead of using gelatin (an animal-byproduct) to formulate our capsules, we use pectin. Our CBD capsules are clean and bursting with benefits thanks to the entourage effect. Each capsule is also gluten-free and contains no artificial sweeteners, colors, or preservatives.
Whether its isolate powder, full, or broad spectrum hemp, our products contain equal to or less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC to ensure federal legality. And, of course, that level of THC is not enough to produce any “high” or intoxication. We obtain our CBD extract using a solventless CO2 extraction method. This process ensures that no harmful, toxic residue ends up in our final product.
