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 wellness.

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

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 of relief. It can be enhanced when made part of a larger wellness initiative. Make sure you tell your physician about your plan to use CBD and get his or her recommendation. You want to make sure there are no issues with any other medications you may be taking.

The Dilemma Regarding Dosing

CBD can be a powerful addition to your wellness regime. How you choose to take CBD has a lot to do with your comfort level and the need for convenience. 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. Though there’s something to be said about having the freedom and flexibility to adjust CBD measurement as needed. As healing continues, the amount of CBD oil taken can be tapered over time.

Listen to your body. Follow your intuition. You are your best advocate.

If you have a medical condition that requires specific treatment, consult with your doctor before trying CBD.

About Bart E. Greenhut

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.
