CBD Capsules

How do CBD Capsules work?

Most CBD capsules come in the form of soft gels, making them simple to swallow and easy for the body to digest. They work similarly to CBD edibles and since you can consume them orally, CBD pills are broken down in the digestive system before the cannabidiol can make its way into cells. As a result, the effects may take longer to kick in – but you may feel them for a longer period.

They also don’t work the same for everyone since the effects may depend on various factors, including your body size, shape, metabolism, and whether or not you ingest it on an empty stomach.

In contrast with their CBD oil or tincture counterparts, CBD capsules aren’t only tasteless but are also very convenient. Pop one in your mouth, swallow with a drink of water, and that’s it.

Everything About CBD Capsules
(CBD Pills or CBD Tablets)

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

The endocannabinoid system, or the ECS, is a group of neuromodulatory lipids, and their receptors are broadly distributed throughout the body. Scientists believe the main purpose of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis – biological harmony – in response to changes in the body’s external and internal environment.

Because endocannabinoids (molecules made by your body) have a similar structure to the cannabinoids found in cannabis, they are able to act within the ECS, influencing almost every part of the body: skin, fat tissue, bones, liver, pancreas, skeletal muscle, heath vessels, the gastrointestinal tract, and more.

Will CBD Capsules get me high or stoned?

Because trace amounts of THC (the psychoactive compound found in cannabis) can be left over in CBD capsules, it’s typically not enough to induce a euphoric effect.
So, the short answer is, no, CBD pills won’t get you high or stoned. CBD is the non-intoxicating compound that does not cause those [psychoactive] effects that are characteristic of THC and for cannabis rich in THC.

How often should I take CBD capsules?

The dosage of CBD you should take depends on a range of factors, including your body weight, your individual body chemistry, the condition you’re treating, and the concentration of CBD in each capsule.

There are a lot of variables that go into deciding how often or how much CBD to take. Before trying CBD, be sure to discuss with your doctor the appropriate dosage and any potential risks.

Are there side effects of taking CBD capsules?

While CBD capsule side effects are rare, we think it’s important to address this question. While CBD is often well-tolerated, it can also cause side effects such as dry mouth, reduced appetite, drowsiness, and fatigue. CBD can also interact with other medications you’re taking, like blood thinners. For this reason, talking to your doctor before taking CBD capsules is your best bet.
