When you think about it, most people desire a comfortable CBD experience. People who already integrate CBD into their wellness practices, as well as those who are considering its use, present two sides to this story. However, a commonality amongst them is that they question whether there is a compelling difference between CBD oil and capsules. Is it price? Value? Taste? Strength? Product consistency? Or the resounding unequivocal importance of… results?
CBD Options Are More than a Matter of Choice
Not all CBD should be created equal, though it’s difficult to know what kind of CBD is the right one for you. There are many variables when determining CBD. While choosing a product that truly offers a consumer benefit is paramount to any CBD purchase, becoming knowledgeable in the various ways that CBD can be taken is important. Even the best quality CBD is only as good as its ability to get into your system and impact health.
Not everyone can take pills, so many CBD manufacturers and distributors have come up with other ways to ingest it.
CBD oil comes in many different forms. While like hemp oil in some ways, CBD oil is far different and considered more effective than hemp oil and other CBD delivery options. Since many people don’t want to smoke CBD or feel that they shouldn’t, both the oil and edible CBD products can be the palatable source of CBD.
CBD Goes Mainstream
Prior to the legalization of recreational marijuana in several states, there was not a wide range of CBD products being manufactured. Now that there are dispensaries everywhere, and mainstream brand retailers have also become involved in the selling of CBD products, U.S. adults have easier access to a wide variety of CBD products including capsules, tinctures, salves, creams and more.
CBD Oil Compared to Capsules Is a Personal Preference
CBD oils are the purest form to promote natural healing. A drop or two, depending on the exacting amount, is usually more than enough for the average use, though a person’s current state of health and the desired symptoms to be treated will also bear importance when determining just how much CBD is enough. Whether mixed with food or placed sublingually under the tongue, there may not be a substantial difference between the oil form and the pill form, other than an individual’s intake preference.
Both the pill form and the oil form are two of the most effective to take. The liquid form can be mixed into food or applied under the tongue. The medicine is the format to use when you need your pain relief to work within a very few minutes, then the oil or tincture format is the most effectual.
If you are still unsure about the products or would prefer an easier route to relief, then the tablets should be your plan.
Once you take a tablet of CBD, it will only be a few short minutes before it magically works on the area intended.
How to Choose CBD Type and Assess Risk
Although there are other forms available, the oil and tablet forms are easiest to digest. They process through the system quicker than other forms of CBD. But because CBD oil, when taken sublingually (under the tongue), is funneled directly into the bloodstream through the sublingual gland, it provides benefits that much sooner. However, this does not equate to being an end-all cure-all to whatever is bothering you, physically or emotionally.
CBD can be a good source for relief and is enhanced when made part of a larger wellness initiative, such as ongoing consultation with a traditional or holistic health practitioner. In fact, including your physician in your use of CBD is recommended to ensure there are no potential side effects due to your current overall health, specific medical issues, or contraindications from medications in use.
The Dilemma Regarding Dosing
CBD can be a powerful addition to your wellness regime. How you choose to take CBD in has a lot to do with your comfort level, need for convenience, and the nature of your health symptoms. But there is another aspect to consider when deciding on oils or capsules.
With CBD capsules, the amount of product is already provided and housed within each pill. If the capsule contains the amount of CBD that’s best for you, this could be the option that fits for your needs and lifestyle. Though there’s something to be said about having the freedom and flexibility to adjust CBD measurement as needed.
If you are living with pain, it can be debilitating but also can vary in intensity day to day, week to week. CBD oil can be a welcome answer to help alleviate pain because it allows consumers to adjust the amount taken more readily, either through the use of a dropper or spray bottle. And because an individual will know just how he or she feels, CBD oil can better address the amount of CBD needed as pain increases or wanes.
As healing continues, the amount of CBD oil taken can be tapered over time, reducing the risk for overuse.
CBD Capsules vs. Oil – A Matter of Taste
Some people have an extra sensitive sense of taste. Sublingual CBD oil comes with an earthy flavor that isn’t for everyone. If the thought of having to let it ‘season’ in your mouth for a minute or two is unfathomable, then CBD capsules might be the preferred choice.
However; if a timely and full body CBD experience is what you’re after, CBD oil can deliver. To get rid of the raw taste, simply sip on a beverage or pop a breath mint for a pleasurable taste diversion.
How to Choose CBD Type Can Be Fine-Tuned Over Time
Once you’ve gotten more comfortable with the idea of including CBD in your life, how to choose CBD type is up to you. By referring to the information provided above and trying CBD oil, CBD capsules, or other CBD products, only then can you make a first-hand decision at what works for you. After all, you’re your perspective is the only one that matters.
Listen to your body. Follow your intuition. You are your best healthcare advocate.
And remember, if you have a medical condition that requires specific treatment, consult with your doctor before following any sort CBD plan and notify them of any changes after use.
Why Wait for Greater Wellness? Start Now
I’m a 73 year old, inventor/entrepreneur. I haven’t worked for someone else since I was 19.
The first product that I ever developed was chosen as one of the 100 most important products developed in the world the year that I developed it. (This was in the late 1960’s)
Since then, I’ve developed things like impact recorders employed to monitor the transport of sensitive products (from art objects to power transformers), temperature recorders to monitor the shipment of perishables, and a derailment detector that’s employed to stop derailments before they become catastrophic. They’re used on many commuter systems around America, such as B.A.R.T. in San Francisco and the Metro in Washington D.C..
In 1985-6 I developed a disposable, “no-touch” poop scooper and then several lines of natural, nutritional treats for dogs and cats.
