Different people have different preferences and tastes. What may be not-so-tasty to one person may be delicious to another. With this in mind, we’ll only give you the differences between the two forms of CBD, their pros, and cons.
The most obvious difference between a CBD capsule and CBD oil is their appearance. A capsule is a dissolvable plastic coating that houses the Cannabidiol, which can be in liquid or powder form, while CBD oil, as the name suggests, is liquid. It can be purchased in a spray or dropper.
Potency and rate of absorption
The most potent form of Cannabidiol is in the oil form. The oil extracted from hemp using CO2 is mixed with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, and may also be mixed with other oils to enhance its taste. Since it is taken under the tongue where the sublingual gland is located, it is faster absorbed into the bloodstream. On the other hand, a CBD capsule is washed down using water which may take more time for the effects to kick in since it depends on your body’s digestion.
Range of use
Another advantage of the CBD oil over the capsule is that it can be applied topically and mixed with drinks.
Although CBD oil has an almost immediate effect, it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. People who cannot stand the taste of oil in their mouth should opt for the capsule form since it leaves no after-taste.
Ease of use
If you travel often, the capsule may be a better option since it can be discreetly taken and it does not pose a risk of spilling. With the capsule, you do not have to worry about taking the wrong dosage or measuring it out as you would with a dropper.
In conclusion, how you choose to take your CBD is entirely up to you. Hopefully, with the above information, it will be easier to make a decision.
