5 Benefits of Our CBD Gel Caps

Are you about to take CBD for the first time? CBD gel capsules are an easy and effective way to experience the benefits of this natural compound.

Most first-timers struggle to decide whether they should use oil tinctures, vapes, topicals, or edibles. Taking a CBD capsule is as convenient as a daily multivitamin. To make your decision easier, we've compiled five benefits of taking capsules over other products.

Keep reading below to learn why you should be taking CBD in the first place, as well as how capsules are easy-to-take anywhere, highly effective, and deliver the exact dose you're looking for.

Why Should You Take CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 cannabinoids or compounds found in the cannabis Sativa plant. These compounds are extracted from the cannabis plant and expertly processed into CBD oil. In turn, this oil can be used in a range of products from edibles, such as CBD gummies and gel capsules, to oil tinctures, topicals, or vapes.  

CBD has been found to help with a wide range of health conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, depression, and pain relief.  With ongoing clinical research paving the way for the medical classification of CBD in the UK & Europe we expect it is only a matter of time before it is globally accepted as a medicine.

There has been extensive research on the medicinal benefits of CBD resulting in America's FDA approving a medication in 2018 for severe epilepsy that contained CBD as an active ingredient. High chances are there will be more medications in the future containing this compound.

1. CBD Gel Capsules Makes Dosing Easy

Figuring out CBD dosing is tricky. There has been no universal dosing guide to taking CBD. Instead, it's recommended that people start low and gradually increase the dose until it feels right.

The same dosage of CBD will not always have the same effect on everyone which can complicate the dosing process as there is no ‘one size fits all’. To help determine what dose works best for you, CBD capsules come in a range of strengths from 5mg up to 50mg per capsule. Dosing with these capsules is far more precise than if you were to use CBD topicals or vapes.

If you’re new to CBD we recommend starting low (10-15mg per day) and gradually working your way up until you find what works best for you.  Your body composition, age and the condition you are trying to alleviate may all impact what dosage is most effective, with most CBD consumers taking around 100mg per day.

For long term medical conditions, such as epilepsy and Parkinson's, the typical daily dose can range up to 600mg per day.  That said, research suggests it's safe for people to take anywhere between 20mg to 1,500mg of CBD per day. The trick is to start low and gradually work your way up into your find the balance right for you.

2. Take CBD Capsules Anywhere Discreetly

A significant benefit of using CBD gel capsules compared to oil tinctures, vapes, or topicals is its convenience and ability to be discreet. You can carry capsules in your pocket, bag, or purse, and take them whenever you are on the go.

For anyone with a typically busy work and social life, capsules are by far the easiest way to take CBD consistently throughout the day and whilst managing your dosage. Also, as capsules are used for various supplements, such as vitamins, taking them in the public eye will not draw any unwanted attention to you.

There is an entire culture of CBD to explore and new advances are being made at lightning speed. One way you can keep up with the latest development and research is to listen to educational CBD podcasts. In just a few years CBD has taken the wellness world by storm and we expect huge medical advancements in the near future.

3. Capsules Have Higher CBD Potency

The CBD found in capsules is more pure and potent than in other forms. It's also concentrated to contain the exact dose within a small capsule. When shopping for CBD it's easy to find high-quality capsules by asking retailers if they have independent lab tests.

A reliable test will tell you all of the ingredients and compounds inside of the CBD, including the amount of THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol is the psychoactive substance in marijuana that gets you high.

The most important things to look for in lab tests are harmful toxins. These may include pesticides, herbicides, microbes like salmonella, and even heavy metals like mercury, lead, or arsenic. Cannabis plants are potentially exposed to these toxins when they're grown at farms or processed.

It's not something you should worry about but always check the lab tests before making a purchase.

4. Health Benefits Without Getting High

When purchasing CBD, you have the option of getting Full-Spectrum (with trace amounts of THC), Broad-Spectrum (with a majority of the cannabinoids but without THC), and CBD Isolate (containing only 100% pure CBD). The problem with isolate is that it strips many of the other natural compounds from the plant.

Most people prefer buying Broad-Spectrum so that they get all of the health benefits from the plant but without THC. Those who get Full-Spectrum also report a phenomenon called the "entourage effect" where they claim the product is more effective when it contains all of the compounds from the cannabis plant.

So are there any CBD oil side effects? Nothing serious. It's only been reported to cause dizziness, dry mouth, or slight digestive discomfort in some people. This only happens in a small population of people.

5. Avoid the Hemp Taste of CBD

One of the most popular ways to take CBD is drops from an oil tincture. This method however for some products, especially Full-Spectrum oils, can leave a hemp aftertaste in your mouth as users keep the drops under their tongue for 30 seconds or more.

As a result, CBD companies have started adding flavours to their products such as peppermint, orange, chocolate, vanilla, citrus, and more. This can help disguise the hemp taste but not always effectively. At Serena Organics, our CBD is Broad-Spectrum in organic MCT oil which removes the hemp taste.

Capsules are an effective solution as you can take high strength CBD without tasting the hemp. The CBD is contained in the gel capsules and is then released inside your stomach, therefore you avoid get the benefits of CBD without the hemp taste.
