Out of over a hundred different chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant, Cannabidiol, aka CBD, is by far one of the most popular. CBD appears today in many forms and may help reduce stress, anxiety, pain, and other medical issues. Unlike THC, CBD does not have any psychotropic properties, so it will not have any psychedelic effects. One of the best ways to take CBD is through CBD capsules.
What are CBD capsules?
CBD capsules are tablets filled with CBD oil. Included in CBD capsules are also carrier oils. This additional ingredient helps increase the adsorption rate of CBD into the body. CBD is actually a fat-soluble compound, so it doesn’t absorb into the bloodstream on its own. Carrier oils like coconut, hemp seed, olive, and avocado oil break down the CBD molecules into smaller particles for more efficient absorption.
CBD oil also contains vitamins, terpenes, amino acids, and omega-3 fatty acid. These are typically very beneficial to the body. They work in conjunction with CBD oil in a capsule to connect with your nervous system receptors and change the release of neurotransmitters.
What is the difference between a capsule and a tincture?
CBD capsules get swallowed whole, while you ingest CBD tinctures sublingually by placing drops under your tongue. Both capsules and tinctures are quick to enter your system, but the taste is different. Typically, tinctures will have a slight taste, which isn’t always pleasant. Capsules are tasteless. Capsules also have consistent doses to ensure efficiency, where tincture doses are up to how many drops the user applies.
How do CBD capsules make you feel?
CBD influences your receptors which escalates the amount of endocannabinoid your body naturally has. Because of this, CBD capsules may help to relax your body. They may also aid in pain relief, anxiety reduction, sleep, and more. A user of CBD capsules should begin to feel the effects in as little as 20 minutes, depending on the dosage. Effects can then last for up to six hours.
CBD does not make a person feel high, as it does not contain enough THC to do so. In fact, CBD oil contains less than 0.3 percent THC, as with all hemp-derived products. This allows people to use CBD on a daily basis. Not only should you be able to perform regular daily tasks while taking CBD, but it actually may provide mental clarity.
