Charlotte’s Web CBD Extract Capsules contain a variety of beneficial plant compounds, including CBD.
A lot! First, as the name implies, our new capsules are filled with liquid, Charlotte’s Web hemp extract and organic extra virgin olive oil, to be exact. There are two new concentrations: 15mg and 25mg. Plus, we’ve added a new 90-count bottle, in addition to our 30 and 60 count bottles.
There are a few. For one, our liquid-filled capsules are made with cleaner ingredients, whereas softgels can contain gelatin, glycerin, carrageenan, and other sorbitol additions. They also have thinner capsule walls than most softgels, which are designed to help them disintegrate faster. They are more stable in high-temperature and low-humidity environments as well.
If you find yourself debating CBD capsules versus CBD oil tinctures, you are not alone. Both have their pros and cons and come down to your personal preference and attitudes.
CBD oil tinctures are arguably the most common and recognizable CBD product on the market today. With one full dropper, you can be exposed to a full spectrum of cannabinoids with potentially beneficial properties, as determined by peer-reviewed medical studies.
One of the best things about CBD capsules is their discretion and ease of using. For those who prefer to use CBD during the day, a capsule can provide a quiet way to absorb cannabinoids without raising too much suspicion. And because they come in an easy-to-recognize form, you can take them with water and skip the natural flavors that come with CBD oil tinctures.
The Advantages of CBD Capsules
Much like CBD oils, CBD capsules were created to make taking CBD oil an easy and convenient process. However, they are made using a process completely different from traditional CBD oil tinctures.
For CBD oil softgel capsules, the cannabinoids are extracted in the same way from the plant. But instead of filling a tincture with CBD oil, the oils are placed into softgel capsules. To fill the capsule, CBD oil is often combined with other carriers, like hemp seed oil or olive oil, in order to help you absorb the CBD.
The key advantage of using CBD oil tinctures is its quick absorption into the body. Taking one full dropper underneath the tongue (sublingually) ensures faster delivery of cannabinoids, which may give quicker observed benefits than with a capsule.
On the downside, CBD oil tinctures may come with a natural taste. Even with flavoring, many people describe the natural flavor as “wood-like” or “earthy.” If this flavor profile hits your palate wrong, it may be difficult to take a tincture. Another con of CBD oil tinctures is they don’t travel very well. If you take a CBD oil in your carry-on luggage, you may get additional questions about its contents. In this situation, you may want to consider flying with CBD capsules versus CBD oil.
