CBD oil tinctures has been the most popular way to consume CBD, but recently we have seen more and more people trying CBD capsules. CBD pills and capsules are a great way to take CBD, especially on the go.

To help you feel confident taking capsules, our team wanted to address the possible side effects of consuming CBD pills.

Let’s get to it!

What are CBD Pills and Capsules and How Do They Work?

Simply put, CBD pills or capsules are pre-measured servings of CBD oil, encapsulated to offer maximum convenience and precision of serving size. Liquid CBD oils and tinctures, on the other hand, are those small (normally glass) bottles with the dropper on top that are filled with the CBD oil.

The CBD oil that is in HempFusion’s capsules is the same organically-grown and produced hemp-derived extract used in our CBD oil tinctures. There is no convincing evidence that the efficiency of CBD oil changes dramatically based on form alone—CBD is absorbed through the bloodstream and interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) whether it’s consumed via capsule, pill or tincture. (That said, there are plenty of distinctions to be made discussing topical CBD vs oral CBD.)

Why Do People Take CBD Pills and Capsules?

If you are new to CBD, or do not prefer the natural earthy flavor of CBD oil, pills are a great option. You won’t taste the CBD oil, and—so long as you’re using a trustworthy brand—you can know the serving sizes are precise.

In addition to taste and precision, capsules are discreet. If you are traveling with CBD or on-the-go for the day, capsules are an easy way to bring your CBD with you. Sometimes when traveling CBD oil can spoil depending on the temperature it’s left at or spill if it’s not secured.

Outside of the convenience they offer, people take CBD capsules because of how it supports their daily functions. HempFusion offers a variety of CBD capsules to help keep your body balanced.

4 Possible Benefits and Side Effects of Taking CBD Capsules

CBD capsules and oils are considered generally safe to take, but, as with any supplement, it is recommended you speak with your doctor before adding anything to your wellness regimen as well as ask the companies if they have safety data on their CBD oil. CBD pill’s possible benefits / side effects will vary from person to person, and it is important to follow the serving size suggestion on the label unless otherwise directed by your physician.

Here are the two most common effects often experienced with consistent use of the recommended serving size of CBD:
Relaxation: CBD is known for supporting a calm and relaxing vibe.

Relief from Post-Workout Soreness: It has been suggested that CBD helps relieve next-day soreness associated with exercise.

Calming Balance: It has been suggested that daily CBD use may be able help you better deal with occasional stress and support feelings of zen and balance.

Mild Dizziness: CBD isn’t a psychoactive ingredient like THC, but some have reported mild dizziness after taking CBD.

Serving Sizes and Side Effects of CBD Capsules: How They Correlate

CBD is available not just in different forms like tinctures and pills, but also in different serving sizes. Factors such as a person’s weight and body chemistry should be taken into consideration when it comes to choosing the best CBD capsules.

The truth, though, is that when using a CBD tincture oil, selecting and measuring the best serving size can be tricky. This is one of the reasons so many HempFusion fans love the capsules–the serving size is locked in and you don’t have to worry about it.

With no added processing ingredients, HempFusion’s CBD capsules are perfect for both the CBD beginner and the aficionado.
