Due to the hyper-growth in the hemp and CBD market, more and more products are popping up from CBD pills, topicals, tinctures, and edibles. Because of the popularity and competitiveness, it seems that everyone is trying to come up with the “next best thing” in CBD in order to stand out from the crowd. We’ve seen everything from CBD popcorn to CBD toothpaste!
At Tessera Naturals, we’ve always avoided gimmicks and instead choose to focus on providing the highest quality hemp CBD products on the market, but there are definite pros and cons for the various ways of consuming CBD, as we’ve written about in our Beginner’s Guide to CBD.
Why CBD Pills are a Favorite?
CBD pills in the form of softgels and capsules offer an easy way to consume CBD as part of your daily health and wellness routine, or as a supplement to treat a number of conditions. Let’s go over 6 reasons why CBD pills might become your new favorite product.
1. Convenient and Clean
Tinctures are by far the most popular form of taking CBD, and for good reason as the sublingual application has been shown to be super effective. That being said, many people don’t want to mess with droppers, holding oil under their tongue for prolonged periods of time, or trying to figure out dosage with the various bottle sizes and potencies that tinctures come in.
Everyone has popped a pill in their life for one reason or another. There’s nothing new to learn and it’s quick and simple. Most people are used to taking vitamins or supplements in pill form so CBD pills are comfortable for them.
2. CBD Pills are Portable and Discreet
If you’re on the go, at work, or traveling, tinctures can sometimes be a bit messy or cumbersome. On the other hand, CBD pills are easy to take with you and there will be no strange stares or unwanted questions as to what you are taking since they resemble regular everyday vitamins.
3. High CBD Absorption and Bioavailability
Bioavailability refers to the rate and the amount for which a substance is absorbed into the bloodstream. The bioavailability of CBD varies based on the different consumption methods.
Sublingual application is extremely effective as the oil absorbs directly into your bloodstream through the capillaries under the tongue. Some people add hemp oil from tincture bottles to their food or beverage… while perfectly fine to do so, the drawback is that you will lose some of the CBD as it goes through your digestive system and is processed through your liver.
This might lead you to believe that CBD pills have the same disadvantage, but our CBD softgel capsules are made with a proprietary water-soluble hemp oil that is nano-emulsified. This means that the oil droplets are broken down into tiny (nano-sized) droplets. The smaller the drops, the more surface contact the oil has with your body’s absorptive tissue, which in turn increases the absorption of CBD across mucous membranes up to 5 times that of standard hemp oil.
4. Long Lasting effects
Similar to how different formats of CBD provide different absorption rates and bioavailability, there is also a difference in how long the effects will last. While smoking or vaping CBD provides the fastest effect (within minutes), the CBD lasts the shortest amount of time in your body. Conversely, CBD in pill form and other edibles take a bit longer to reach your bloodstream (30-60 minutes), but the effects of the CBD will remain in your body for several hours. Tinctures fall somewhere in between.
5. CBD Pills are Tasteless and Odorless
Some people do not enjoy consuming CBD from tinctures due to the taste of hemp. There are plenty of tasty edibles to choose from, but oftentimes those come with added calories, sugars, artificial flavors and other undesirable additives.
CBD gelcaps are a great choice for a tasteless form of CBD while avoiding unwanted calories and extra ingredients.
6. Exact dosage
One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is “How much CBD should I take?”. Tinctures offer great flexibility for experimenting and adjusting your dose, but once you’ve found your sweet spot, you’ll want to have some consistency.
Vaping/smoking CBD is difficult to control dosage as it will vary based on several factors such as vaping apparatus, how long you draw in the smoke/vape, etc. Edibles can also be a bit tricky as the CBD dosage isn’t always consistent within the overall product.
While you can’t really overdose on CBD, CBD pills are great for staying the course as you’ll receive an exact consistent dose. Our CBD softgel capsules contain 25 mg of CBD each, so you’ll know what you’re getting every time.
