Taking CBD in a softgel form is uniquely different to all other methods like topicals and oils. Apart from the obvious difference that softgels are ingested orally as opposed to absorbed by the skin or taken as a tincture, there are other distinct differences you should know about so you can make the best decision possible about which CBD method will work best for you:
Provides Superior Absorption
When you swallow a CBD softgel, its active ingredients pass through your digestive system and are eventually metabolized by your liver. From the liver, the active compounds are sent to your bloodstream which can lead to faster absorption.
Allows More Accurate Dosage
Figuring out your ideal CBD dosage using softgels is probably one of the easiest methods. For each person, the “just right” zone of CBD will be different and requires experimentation. But because each dose of CBD is already measured out for you in each capsule, there’s no guesswork involved in how much CBD you’re actually ingesting. This can be less accurate when applying a cream or using an oil dropper.
Easily Transitions Into Your Current Routine
If you’re someone who already takes other vitamins, supplements or medications—CBD softgels will easily transition into your current wellbeing routine. And if you’re in a rush to head out the door, CBD softgels won’t slow you down as all you’ll need is a glass of water to wash them down and you’re good to go!
Subtle & Convenient
Softgels are certainly one of the most subtle and convenient ways to take CBD. They’re also helpful if you travel frequently, they won’t leak in your bag, and they’re easy to carry around. And once you work out exactly how much CBD is the right amount for you, you can then decide whether you need a regular or “extra” strength softgel and potentially have fewer softgels to take as part of your routine.
Another helpful aspect of some CBD softgels is that when you take them there is less after-taste than when you take CBD as a tincture (where you put the oil dropper under your tongue and hold the oil there for a minute or more). So if you’re not a fan of holding oil in your mouth of the distinct after-taste it can leave in your mouth, softgels that you can wash down with a glass of water might be a better option.
How you choose to take CBD ultimately depends on you, your lifestyle, and your personal preferences. But if you’re looking for high-quality CBD that is highly versatile and seamlessly transitions into your medicine cabinet, then CBD softgels are certainly worth considering having by your side as you pursue loving how you feel on a daily basis.
