What are CBD capsules?

Posted on March 19, 2018

There are a number of ways to get your CBD oil. CBD edibles are one of the most popular. But perhaps none of them is as simple to use as the venerable capsule. CBD capsules are one of the most convenient and cost-effective ways to use CBD.

But what exactly is in those squishy little golden ellipsoids? What are they made of, and how do you use them? Gelcaps - also called softgels in the industry - are generally made from gelatin and other hypoallergenic food-grade ingredients. Gelatin is the same edible, rubbery substance used to make things such as Jello and gummy bears. And like Jello, gel caps melt in the warm, acidic conditions of the stomach, releasing their contents.

Softgels are produced in a process known as encapsulation. A precise dose of medicine or dietary supplement is injected into the capsule.

CBD can be encapsulated in gelcaps. The most common type of capsule used for CBD are soft-shelled capsules, which are primarily used for oils and for active ingredients that are dissolved or suspended in oil - such as with CBD.

The Benefits of CBD Capsules

Gel caps eliminate problems such as unpleasant flavors, degradation due to air exposure, or the need for liquid-tight packaging. Since each pill-sized capsule is a self-contained unit, dosage can be more accurately regulated, and the potential of spilling valuable oil is eliminated.

CBD gel capsules are ideal for people on the go, who want a fast, accurate dosage every time, with no mess. They can be taken right along with your daily vitamins. They can also be added to prepared foods such as smoothies. Or they can be punctured and applied to the skin.
