Why CBD Capsules Are Best

CBD has become a revolution in the health market ‒ thanks to its miraculous benefits that it promises to offer. With time, more and more research is now backing up its healthy perks.

Although there are a lot of ways to benefit from CBD’s healthy side, CBD capsules are the most popular and favoured one so far. This is because CBD capsules are precisely dosed, so you know the exact dosage that’s going in, they are easy to take and convenient when travelling too.

There are many other benefits of using CBD capsules over other CBD products.

But, we do not want to bore you with that. So, we’re going to continue on with the questions that our readers have asked of us, again and again. Reading the answers to these FAQs will definitely make it easier for you to decide if consuming CBD capsules is right for you or not.

So, let’s get started:

FAQs Answered in Detail

Do CBD capsules work as pain-killers?

If you’re in pain and are looking to find an alternative painkiller prescription; we can’t recommend you this one. While CBD capsules work tremendously well relieving pain ‒ as stated in this research ‒ they are still considered a supplement and not an actual medicine.

People who use CBD capsules have testified that it is a great alternative (better than using traditional pain-killing drugs) to alleviate pain, muscle spasms, anxiety and even insomnia.

However, we only recommend using CBD capsules if you have no serious medical conditions since the effect of CBD on pain is still under research and is not approved for medical purposes.

Is it safe to consume CBD capsules?

Like all other capsule-based supplements, there are a few drawbacks that you need to be aware of. We are confident to say that CBD capsules are completely safe to consume and don’t cause any severe side-effects that you need to be cautious about. However, since capsules have a precise dosage and delivery system ‒ you can experience the following symptoms:

  • Dizziness
  • Dry Mouth
  • Drowsiness (even in day-time)

In some cases, you can also have:

  • Moodiness in appetite
  • Vomiting (in the first few doses)
  • Diarrhea (consult doctor if this happens)
  • Nausea (goes away after a few hours)

While it’s extremely rare (and is based on various other things), CBD capsules may trigger psychosis for a short period of time. If so, we highly recommend you stop taking it immediately.

We also advise you not to take CBD capsules if you’re pregnant or are nursing a baby. We don’t know how CBD affects the development of your fetus/baby so it’s better to avoid it as of yet.

What ‘effects’ can I expect from CBD capsules?

It depends on what you’re looking to gain from CBD capsules themselves. The effects of CBD on you will be different from someone else, taking the same dose. But, in general, you can expect to experience a calming, relaxed state or you will get a rush of focus and energy.

Your body size plays a major role in determining the potency of CBD capsules.

We’ve seen that people with large body size can have less effect of CBD on a dosage that can have a ‘strong effect’ on people with small body size.

If you are new to the whole CBD thingy, it can take you a whole week (or more) to experience the full effects of cannabinoids and its health benefits. This is because, people who haven’t taken CBD before, have less CBD receptors in their cellular system, which build over time once they’ve started consuming cannabinoids. Once receptors are fully developed, you’ll get an intense effect of CBD almost immediately. And as your dosage increases, so will the intensity.

What CBD capsule dosage should I go for?

Again, it depends. However, we will assume that you are new to CBD. So, for that, we will recommend you to follow the dosing instructions given by the manufacturer of CBD capsules.

In our opinion, it’s normal to start with 15-25mg of dosage twice a day for the first two weeks.

You will most likely feel the effects of CBD within a week or two. If not, you can try to increase your dosage and keep doing it until you start feeling the desired effects of CBD capsules.

Are there any downsides of taking CBD in capsules?

Unless you’re too nitpicky about having the most effective, most efficient way of consuming CBD then taking it in capsules is a good choice. However, if you are serious about squeezing every bit of health benefit out of CBD in the best possible way, then there are other better ways.

The reason is simple. Your body reacts better with tincture drops taken directly under your tongue or consuming CBD with vaping or dabbing. That’s because inhaling CBD and consuming it sublingually, allows the CBD to be absorbed by the bloodstream, very quickly.

And because capsules go through the digestive process, they lose a lot of their potency on the way before hitting the bloodstream, which lowers the % of CBD you’re actually consuming.

But, as we’ve said, it only matters if you want to squeeze every bit of CBD benefits. For most, CBD capsules are way better than any other means of consuming CBD. And we know why.

For example, you may like the idea of taking precise dose of CBD from capsules. You may also like the convenience of taking the pills every morning/evening, whereas, in other methods, it most likely involves a process that you have to go through in order to consume cannabinoids.

And, if you don’t like to draw attention by vaping/dabbing then CBD capsules make sense.

We’ve also noticed that some people like to consume CBD orally because it gives them better relief or calm effect than taking it by other methods. It can be a placebo effect but if it works, then we don’t see why you shouldn’t opt for it.

Final Verdict

CBD capsules are a great way to start getting the health benefits that cannabinoids are gifted with. You can take them anytime, anywhere by popping up a pill or two and taking them orally.

We are certain that you have the basic knowledge of CBD capsules and that it has helped you in deciding whether you should buy them or go for other alternative CBD products.
