Where to Buy CBD Capsules
March 8th, 2018
Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is becoming increasingly popular in mainstream culture as more and more people learn just how beneficial it can be. And from that increased popularity has come a wide range of new ways to ingest it, from highly concentrated drops to topical lotions to capsules. The best form for you depends on your needs, but for those looking for a daily supplement of nature’s little miracle-worker, you can’t go wrong with CBD capsules.
What is CBD?
Before we delve into the benefits of CBD capsules, it’s helpful to have a basic understanding of what CBD is so you can decide if capsules are the right intake method for you.
CBD is one of many chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant called cannabinoids, but it won’t get you high. Cannabis contains over 100 variations of these cannabinoids that have different effects on the body. The cannabinoid responsible for that stoned feeling so often associated with marijuana is called tetrahydrocannabinol AKA THC. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, so you can work, drive, or do anything else after ingesting it without risking impairment.
But even though CBD doesn’t get you high doesn’t mean it doesn’t offer a wide range of benefits for the body.
CBD binds to special receptors in your body called cannabinoid receptors. You can think of these in terms of CBD being a key and cannabinoid receptors are the locks. Most of these receptors are found in your central nervous system, but they’re also in your digestive tract, reproductive organs, and your skin. The collective system of these receptors is called your endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Your ECS is responsible for many important functions including your mood, memory, pain, immune function, appetite, and sleep, just to name a few. Due to CBD’s ability to bind to receptors in the ECS, it’s reported benefits include everything from alleviating anxiety and lifting your mood to improving your quality of sleep to reducing pain and inflammation.
That being said, your ideal CBD intake method largely depends on your needs and whether you’re looking to relieve an acute ailment or you’re in the market for an addition to your daily multivitamin.
CBD Capsules vs Other Methods
The following are some of the most common CBD intake methods and what they’re used for.
CBD Tinctures and Oils
Tinctures and oils are among the most common types of CBD. They contain a high concentration of CBD and typically come in a bottle-dropper form or in a syringe. Their high concentration makes them ideal for targeting specific ailments rather than as a daily supplement.
CBD vapor is just as it sounds—it’s the process of ingesting CBD through vaporization. It tends to have a lower concentration than some of the other methods, but unlike tinctures and oils, which take 30-60 minutes to take effect, the effects are felt right away. Therefore, it’s easy to adjust the dosage you want in real-time.
CBD topicals are creams or lotions that you apply to your skin to experience the effects. These are ideal for those who are looking relieve physical pain, like arthritis, as many report that they experience a reduction in pain and inflammation after applying it.
Finally, we have CBD capsules. Capsules are ideal for daily supplementation because they’re a simple and easy way to get your daily intake of a moderate amount of CBD. Plus, they allow you to avoid the taste of CBD oil and tinctures, which some find aversive. The capsules typically come in dosages that range from 10-50 mg, which you can adjust depending on your body’s needs.
Where to Buy CBD Capsules
CBD is legal across the United States, even where cannabis is illegal, so an increasing number of retailers, both online and in-person, are offering it for sale. That said, you should take care that you purchase it from a retailer with high quality standards who’s transparent about their sourcing practices.
If you’re not sure where to buy from, start with these companies:
Healthy Hemp Oil sells five different brands of CBD capsules that range from 15-25mg depending on your needs. They also sell a wide range of other CBD products, so they’re a great place to start exploring your options.
