Capsules- what are they?
These are solid doses of CBD contained in a soft soluble container. Most pharmaceutical companies manufacture the capsule coating using gelatin.
CBD capsules and supplements are not usually placed in the same category as medicine, but they do use the same mechanisms that medicine capsules use. Some CBD pills come in soft gel forms, and there are full-spectrum capsules and isolate capsules. It is advisable to always ask which kind you are purchasing.
Here are some Capsule cons/negatives.
No Targeted Parts- The capsules are not made for any specific body parts. That means once you take one you cannot control which parts of the body the cbd flows to.
They Have A Lower Bioavailability Rate Compared To Most Delivery Methods- The bioavailability rate is by definition the proportion or percentage of the substance that your bloodstream absorbs. A CBD pill does not have a high rate, and swallowing one will not give you the same amount as vaporized cannabidiol. Vaporization has a much higher rate.
They Are Slow-Acting – Slower acting substances have effects that last longer so you are safe if this is the effect you do want. However, if you need faster action then you may be better off considering other options. The average amount of time for a capsule to take effect is from half an hour to an hour and a half. That means you will need to have set times to take the pill depending on the time you want to feel the effects.
Possibility Of Other Ingredients- Most manufacturers include other ingredients to facilitate the absorption of the capsule in the body. Other CBD products only have cannabidiol and a carrier oil but this is not feasible for the capsules. This means that a capsule may only have a small amount of CBD compared to other forms of the substance.
