The CBD capsules have a fixed amount, with which the dosage is always known. A softgel capsule contains 5 mg CBD, which is equivalent to 2 drops of CBD oil.
A user can therefore also gradually increase the dosage with capsules. It is recommended to start with one capsule. Then you can increase this to two, three or four capsules at a time. You do this at your own discretion, because the desired or required dosage differs per person.
Keep in mind that CBD is effective immediately, but that in most cases the effect is only noticeable after a few days.
Absorption by the body
Taking CBD capsules is the second best method for the body. When CBD oil is dripped under the tongue, the body absorbs the CBD directly into the body via the mucous membranes. However, capsules are only opened in the stomach. With a capsule, the CBD therefore has to travel a longer distance. And the body absorbs the CBD through the stomach wall, which is less rapid.
However , this is better than other methods, such as dripping CBD oil into food products. Part of the CBD is absorbed by the body through the mucous membranes. But it is not known how much. This also makes consistent dosing more difficult. Maintaining a fixed dose is therefore possible with CBD capsules.
Taking CBD capsules
Most people have no problem taking capsules. The soft gels appear to be even easier to take. However, we recommend using a sip of water with CBD capsules. This prevents any irritation of the mucous membranes, softens the capsule somewhat along the way and facilitates absorption into the body.
There are users who find it difficult to take capsules. We advise them to place the capsule on the tongue and to take it with a large amount of water. For some, the problem is because of the thought that they are taking a capsule. While they swallow food easily. Thinking about food can help them. In extreme cases, they can also take the capsule at the same time as cold or lukewarm food. The time of taking CBD capsules, short or long before or after eating, has no influence on the effect.
