CBD Oil Capsules: Who Are They Best For?
The hemp CBD industry is booming since the Farm Bill passed in December of 2018. This gave more people access to CBD products and brings up the question of what is the best delivery method for your lifestyle. If you are wondering more about CBD oil capsules, please read on. Also, check out our CBD oil vs. CBD oil capsules article if you aren't sure about the differences.
Both CBD oil capsules can be ingested by swallowing or biting down on. When swallowed, CBD oil capsules enter your digestive system, which absorbs the cannabidiol. Your stomach dissolves the CBD gell capsule causing the oil to be absorbed into the bloodstream, the same way most pills work. The cannabidiol then follows the bloodstream to your endocannabinoid system of ECS. When you bite down on a CBD gel capsule, move the oil to under your tongue so it will be dissolved through the mucous membranes, into the bloodstream, and to your ECS.
What is and How Does Your Endocannabinoid System Work?
Your ECS is an amazing system within your body that has a huge responsibility of helping your body maintain balance and has become known as your body's master regulator. Receptors of the endocannabinoid system are found all over your body in various organs and the nervous system.
CBD oil is able to help a broad spectrum of ailments and areas of your body because of the ECS's regulatory role. Cannabidiol could alleviate many symptoms including anxiety, inflammation, and mood swings. I started using it about a month ago for depression and could go on and on about how good I feel. Many people, including me, say it makes them "feel more like themselves" and even notice they have less sleeplessness. Researchers have come to the conclusion that most people's endocannabinoid system is stressed or starving for CBD.
Now, how quickly CBD can reach your body's endocannabinoid receptors and the amount that your body absorbs is known as bioavailability. Each type of CBD product has different bioavailability. Some ways you use or consume CBD are more bioavailable and some products have a higher bioavailability.
How Long Does it Take for CBD Oil Capsules to Work?
The answer depends on how you use that capsule. In short, it's going to take longer if you swallow it than if you were to bite it.
When you swallow a CBD gel capsule you can expect this to take about an hour. This is because the gel cap has to be dissolved causing it to take a bit longer for the CBD inside to come out and be able to be absorbed into your bloodstream after it reaches your stomach.
It is suggested to take a healthy fat like Omega 3 supplements when you consume a CBD capsule. When you do this, it will help your body's lymphatic system absorb the cannabidiol and will allow it to be concentrated on the CB2 receptors in your immune system. This is a good thing because the CBD will bypass your livers detox process and cause it to increase the pills bioavailability, giving you more of an effect.
You can also increase a CBD gel capsules bioavailability by biting it and moving it around under your tongue. This will completely bypass your body's digestive system and go directly into your bloodstream from your mucous membranes. Taking the capsules oil sublingually like this will experience results in about two minutes.
Why Do People Prefer Taking CBD in Capsules?
- CBD oil capsules have great longevity in effects and they can last up to twelve hours.
- They are discreet.
- Don't have a taste.
- Great for busy people on the go.
It's easier to carry a couple of pills instead of an entire bottle of oil.
- Less hassle traveling.
If flying you can only have a certain amount of liquid.
- Can still be taken sublingually for quicker results but easier to carry around
- Extremely convenient.
What is CBD Oil Capsules NOT Recommended for?
- If you want quick results but don't want to bite the gel capsule
- If you want to cook or mix CBD into food and drinks (You're looking for CBD oil tinctures)
- If you have a difficult time swallowing pills
- If you prefer CBD powder over hemp oil
- If you want to make your own CBD products (You're looking for CBD powder or Liposomes)
There are many different options, hopefully, this makes it easier for you to determine what CBD product will fit your lifestyle best. We recommend you look for CBD products that are full-spectrum and not an isolate that has been created by a non-toxic CO2 extraction process. These products will give you a better cannabinoid experience.
