CBD Capsules vs. CBD Oil

Updated: Feb 27

It is pretty obvious how magical and satisfying CBD is? We can't say enough about how CBD can improve our sleep, reduce stress and anxiety while helping manage our pain, aches and inflammation.

CBD comes in many forms like oil, tincture, edibles, gummies, topicals, isolates and capsules. Today, we will be focusing on CBD capsules and CBD oil. Helping you understand the similarities and differences between these two forms of CBD.

Both CBD capsules and oil are two of the most popular choices for people that want to use CBD to enhance their body and mind.

But both of them serve a different purpose and determining which is the best for you would have to depend on your lifestyle, convenience and the amount of bioactivity you require.

Don't forget if you are looking for an all natural organic CBD product then try Mellow Organic today. For CBD oils we have two options Mellow CBD Oil is made from CBD Isolate and contains 900 mg CBD. Mellow Full Spectrum CBD Oil is made from 1,800 mg CBD. Mellow CBD Soothing Balm is our vanilla scented balm.

CBD Capsules are meant to be consumed orally (by mouth). It is usually made from CBD extracts, carrier oil and softgel covering. The bioactivity is up to 20% while it takes anywhere from 30-120 minutes before your body starts feeling its effects. The CBD effects from CBD capsules will last for 4 to 6 hours.

On the other hand, CBD Oil is meant to be taken sublingually (under the tongue). CBD oil contains CBD extracts and carrier oil. Though in some CBD oil products flavoring additives may be added. The bioactivity is up to 35% and it usually takes between 15 to 30 minutes before you start seeing the effects from CBD. The effects from CBD oil will last around 8-12 hours.

Why should you use CBD capsules?

  • Taking CBD in a capsule is easy.

  • CBD dosage is easy with capsules as all capsules come with the same amount.

  • Easy to travel with CBD capsules.

  • It is definitely discrete.

  • CBD capsules are odorless and tasteless.

Why should you use CBD Oil?

  • CBD oil is the most well known type of CBD.

  • You can choose different potencies, flavors, sizes and how your CBD is formulated.

  • It's easy to measure CBD dosage with glass droppers that come with the CBD oil like the ones from Mellow Organic.

  • Bioactivity level is higher with CBD oil allowing more CBD into your body.

  • Using CBD oil is very user friendly. All you have to do is drop it under your tongue.

Why should you not use CBD capsules?

  • Low bioactivity means you lose some of its potency before it reaches the bloodstream.

  • Choice is much limited if compared to availability of CBD oil.

  • Having a fixed dosage can be inconvenient if you are looking for a lower or higher dosage for your self-care routine.

  • Not all capsules casing is vegan. A lot of capsule casing are made from gluten which comes from animal products.

Why you should not use CBD oil?

  • Some people may not like the taste of CBD, but CBD with added flavors are available.

  • CBD if not stored correctly may leak during traveling. Mellow Organic’s CBD oil products come with leak-proof caps.

  • CBD oil is not discreet when used in public.

It's clear from this that CBD oil may be a more effective option if you are thinking of using CBD to help you with improving sleep, treat insomnia, manage stress and anxiety, treat depression, relieve pain and inflammation or to increase focus and alleviate mood. However the method of consuming CBD you choose, as long you let CBD be part of your daily health self-care is okay with us.
