Tablets and capsules are just a common form of CBD that is convenient to take orally. They are easy to keep in pockets and convenient to take on the go.

That’s why, at Flawless CBD, we source of high quality products to ensure you get CBD in only its pure form. If this is your first time trying CBD capsules and tablets, let us get started in understanding what exactly is CBD and how does it work?...

What is Cannabidiol?

Cannabidiol is one of the cannabinoids – or compounds – found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Although tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the also an active ingredient of the plant, and amongst over 100 known cannabinoids, cannabidiol makes about 40% of the plant’s extract.

Over the past couple of years, professionals have researched the health benefits of using CBD in its most popular form, CBD oil. Cannabidiol oil or CBD oil is starting to gain popularity among the vaping community as juice for their vaporisers, vape pen, and e-cigarette.

What most people don’t know though, is that aside from taking it in through inhalation, it can also be made in the form of capsules and tablets. This can be a more ideal method of taking CBD depending on your preferences.

How does CBD Work?

Cannabidiol is not a psychoactive substance and therefore does not get you 'high'. It is believed to prevent the breakdown of a particular chemical in the brain that affects mood, pain, and mental function.

Research has shown that, by preventing the breakdown of the chemical, CBD increases its level in the blood and thus reduces the psychotic symptoms associated with mental conditions such as schizophrenia. Cannabidiol also seems to reduce pain and anxiety.

Health Benefits

CBD’s effect is not yet fully understood by researchers, and we’re certainly not in a position to make any definitive medical claims. These are suggested benefits from research and studies, we recommend you try CBD out for yourself and consult your GP.

CBD activates several receptors in the body including serotonin, adenosine and vanilloid receptors. By activating these receptors, there are suggestions that CBD can provide the following benefits:

  • It can improve mood and reduce anxiety.
  • It can help fight off inflammation and reduce pain.
  • It can relieve stomach pain and nausea.
  • It reduces the risk of having cancer.
  • It improves cardiovascular health by lowering cholesterol levels.
  • It can reduce the risk of Type 1 diabetes and obesity.
  • It can protect and heal the skin.

These are just some of the many reported benefits of taking CBD every day in moderation.

Different Ways to Consume CBD

Cannabidiol comes in various forms and can be consumed in different ways

  • Inhalation – Perhaps the most popular method of consuming cannabidiol. CBD is inhaled by using a vaporiser. It will heat the CBD oil or e-liquid just enough to form vapours while avoiding the by-products of combustion. CBD enters the body through the lungs. This method is considered the fastest since it doesn’t have to pass through your stomach or digestive system and is also the most efficient way of consuming the benefits of cannabidiol as its absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
  • Ingestion – Capsules, beverages and edibles are the easiest way of consuming CBD. It can enter the body though little preparation since the products are prepared in a way that it can be easily absorbed by your digestive tract.
  • Sublingual – Sublingual means ‘under the tongue’. Our tongue has blood vessels that make it easy for CBD to get absorbed and passed through the bloodstream. Tinctures, extracts, and pure CBD oils can be taken sublingually. Just place a few drops of the product under your tongue for 90 seconds before swallowing.
  • Creams and Balms – If you do not want CBD in your bloodstream and would rather have it in a localised area of your skin, creams and lotions are for you. Some companies even include cannabidiol in shampoos, body wash, moisturising rubs, and conditioner.

Why Use Capsules and Tablets?

Even though Cannabidiol oil is the widely used form of CBD, a lot of people still prefer capsules and tablets because it’s simple and fast to take in.

Dosage is easy to measure in a capsule than in oil. With oil, you need to be careful and accurate in measuring the drops to get the desired effect but with tablets, you just need to take a certain number, and you’ll be fine.

CBD oil usually comes in bottles, which can be inconvenient for travelling. They can leak and spill all over belongings. On the other hand, CBD capsules and tablets have a better shelf life and are better choices for people who travel a lot. It is also easier to form a habit with taking capsules than by using oil.

Most people usually describe cannabidiol oil’s taste as somewhat plant-like or grassy. This also very much depends on the type of carrier oil that is used. If you aren’t a fan of unpleasant tasting products, then CBD capsules and tablets are ideal for you. It is odourless, tasteless and you can easily gulp it down with water.

CBD Capsules & tablets are a great alternative for people who are looking to take them on the go.

FAQs

Can cannabidiol get me high?

CBD, unlike THC, is not a psychoactive substance. You can’t get high from using it.

Is it legal to use CBD?

Although THC and CBD are from the same plant, CBD is perfectly legal.

Can the capsules be taken on an empty stomach?

They can be taken on an empty stomach but not recommended. Again please see the packaging for use and consult a GP if necessary. Experts do suggest taking it with a fat source, like nuts and yoghurt, for better absorption.

The answer lies on the person’s tolerance for CBD, what symptoms you’re trying to treat, your biological makeup, and the quality of CBD you’re consuming. Cannabidiol capsules typically come in different dosages ranging from 5mg to 2000mg. Start with a small amount first and build it up from there.
