Many people are switching over to CBD oils and capsules because unlike inhalation, ingesting cannabis won’t irritate your respiratory system and cause other associated health concerns. Ingesting also allows for convenient, discreet, and accurate dosing.
Choosing between capsules or tinctures shouldn’t be a difficult choice as they both provide the benefits of cannabis. Let me try and help you decide.
CBD oil, also referred to as a CBD tincture, comes in a bottle with a dropper attached; simply gather up some oil into the dropper, place a few drops underneath your tongue, and hold it there for around a minute before swallowing.
CBD capsules are made in a similar way to regular CBD oils but come in a gel capsule – simply pop one in your mouth and swallow with a glass of water.
Capsules are incredibly easy to use. They also hold a specific dosage and since some people can’t cope with the taste of CBD oil, capsules provide a taste-free option.
Capsules often come in higher strengths as they are most commonly used by those struggling with chronic pain where a higher dosage of CBD oil would be required.
CBD oils might be more suited to you if you are looking for a quick-acting option, and if you don’t mind the taste of CBD. Dropping a few drops of tincture under your tongue is simple and the cannabinoids begin working in minutes. Dosing is very accurate and can be easily adjusted.
