Some CBD consumption methods may seem like a hassle, counting out oil tincture drops or stepping outside to vape CBD. What if you want something simple, something you don’t have to think about? CBD capsules might be what you need to get through the day without making things harder. There are many great CBD products out there, but you might prefer one over the other depending on your lifestyle choices. Let’s take a look at some facts about CBD pills and capsules so you can understand how they work and whether they’re right for you!
What are CBD Capsules?
CBD capsules are exactly what they sound like – CBD isolate encapsulated in the form of a pill. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a naturally-occurring chemical compound found in the hemp plant. Hemp is unique because it contains high concentrations of CBD, a compound that has become highly popular recently due to its amazing benefits for the body.
Our CBD pills are made with CBD extracted from the leaves and flowers of hemp plants. As with most CBD products, an additional ingredient is combined to make dosing calculations easier for production and consumer purposes. We add coconut powder because it has medium-chain triglycerides or MCTs that are great for your health. CBD molecules also naturally bond to fatty acids like MCTs. This bond improves the absorption rate of the CBD and its overall effectiveness.
Coconut powder also provides some benefits and essential nutrients to add to the effects of CBD. Coconut is an alkaline food, so it helps to naturally balance your pH levels. It’s also high in potassium, which may offer more help towards cramps and spasms. Plus, it’s a good source of lauric acid, so it helps with metabolism and fighting off viruses and bacteria.
How Do CBD Pills Work?
CBD capsules absorb differently into your body than creams or vapes. First of all, the pill must enter your stomach before the actual CBD can be absorbed into your bloodstream.
When you ingest CBD in pill form, it must pass through your digestive tract, where it’s broken down before entering the liver for further filtration. After passing through the liver, the CBD enters the bloodstream to travel and interact with special cannabinoid receptors.
These cannabinoid receptors then communicate with the governing endocannabinoid system or ECS to create specific actions or effects throughout the body. Your ECS is responsible for many major body functions, like sleep, mood, digestion, immune response, and more. The ECS is constantly working to maintain a healthy internal balance or “homeostasis.” CBD may support and improve the overall functionality of your ECS so that you can live a stronger, higher quality of life.
Are CBD Capsules Better than CBD Oil?
There is no better or worse product when it comes to hemp-derived CBD products. Whether it’s tincture oil or capsules, each type of product offers the same main ingredient, CBD. It just comes down to what your preferred method is and how you choose to consume it. Some people don’t like the natural taste of CBD oil, and that’s okay! That’s why more than one type of CBD product exists.
Yes, sublingually taking CBD oil may offer higher bioavailability than CBD capsules because it absorbs through your sublingual gland (under your tongue) instead of the digestive tract. However, the effects of the capsules do tend to last longer, which would make it a better option for those who want prolonged effects throughout the day.
You can expect the effects of taking CBD pills to last from 6-8 hours, whereas the effects of taking CBD oil sublingually may last between 4-6 hours. As for vaping or smoking CBD, the effects are almost instant, but they only tend to last between 2-4 hours.
Besides offering convenience and long-lasting effects, CBD capsules are inconspicuous. They look just like a vitamin or supplement pill. In comparison to vaping CBD or smoking CBD flower, the pills produce no smoke or smell. There’s also no aftertaste or oily residues like CBD tincture oil and CBD edibles. Plus, CBD capsules make dosing a cinch –just find your correct dose and take them like any other pill or vitamin. You might also find an alternative in CBD gel capsules or CBD softgels that have similar effects!
How Many CBD Pills Should I Take?
If it is your first time taking a CBD pill, start with a low dosage. Always start slow, then work your way up to a dose that gives you the effects you want. This is how you find your “optimum dose.” It’s important to find the perfect CBD dosage for yourself to make sure you get the full benefits.
Most CBD capsules start from 10 mg. 10 mg is a great amount to start with, but remember that CBD capsules go through your digestive system, and some of it gets lost during that process. You might need to add an extra capsule if you don’t notice any effects after a while. Or perhaps you should try a stronger dose. Everyone is different, and some people may need to take more CBD than others to feel the effects. That’s why finding your optimum dose matters! We offer 10mg, 25mg, 50mg, or 100mg capsules, and each bottle contains 30 pills.
We recommend consulting with your physician before starting a CBD regimen to ensure it will not cause any problems with current medications. You can also get professional advice about dosage levels for your particular situation. However, you can also start with lower milligram capsules and gradually work your way up to higher dosages until you feel the full effects of CBD. For general suggestions regarding dosage, check out our handy CBD dosage chart.
What are the Side Effects of CBD Pills?
CBD is well-tolerated by most people, and it has very few side effects. Generally, people do not experience any of these if they are taking the proper dosage.
Even if you end up taking more than the recommended amounts, it’s virtually impossible to overdose on CBD. The benefits of CBD greatly outweigh its minimal side effects. Just so you are aware, here are some of the possible side effects of CBD:
- Change in appetite
- Nausea or diarrhea
- Slight change in mood
- Dry mouth

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Are CBD Capsules and CBD Pills the Same?
No, CBD capsules and pills are different! Usually, CBD capsules contain isolate powder inside a gelatin casing, while CBD pills are usually compressed and do not have a casing.
Are CBD Capsules and CBD Pills Vegan?
Yes, CBD capsules can be vegan if they’re made with a plant-based gelatin casing. However, some CBD brands may use animal parts to make the casing, so remember to do your research on the product’s ingredients! Many pills are also made with lactose, which is not vegan, because of its excellent compressibility properties.
What Are the Differences Between CBD Capsules & CBD Edibles?
Edibles are anything you can infuse with CBD and eat. CBD capsules are gelatin casings filled with isolate powder. So while capsules are considered edibles, not all edibles are capsules!
How Do You Dose CBD Capsules?
Although there are no official dosing guidelines, we recommend taking 0.25mg of CBD per pound of body weight for a normal dose. If you are looking for something stronger, increase the dosage to 0.5mg of CBD for every pound. Of course, if you’re new to CBD, start lower and gradually work your way up.
Is It Okay to Take CBD Capsules Or CBD Pills Without Food?
Yes, in fact, we recommend taking capsules with food! While you should not experience any adverse reactions if you take CBD capsules or pills without food, taking them with food can maximize absorption. Pills and capsules have to be digested before the effects kick in, and eating them with food should help with the breakdown and digestion process.
What Do CBD Capsules Taste Like?
CBD capsules are flavorless and odorless! Because they’re made with isolate powder, there are no terpenes to affect the flavors and aromas.
Can CBD Capsules Help Me Sleep?
Yes, you can take a CBD capsule to sleep better! CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that has many calming and soothing benefits. Take one before you sleep to get a more comfortable, relaxing night of sleep.
Can You Overdose With CBD Capsules or CBD Pills?
No, it’s highly unlikely anyone will overdose on CBD capsules and pills! Some studies show that a toxic dose of CBD is around 20,000 mg, which means that someone would need to ingest multiple, entire bottles of CBD pills or capsules to hit that amount!
How Long Do The Effects of CBD Pills Last?
CBD pills typically last up to about 8 hours after consumption. However, a few factors can affect how long the CBD pills last, including age, weight, tolerance, fatigue, or diet.
How Long Does It Take To Feel the Effects of CBD Capsules?
CBD capsules must pass through the digestive system before you start feeling any effects. Typically, this can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour on average but can vary between people.
Why Choose CBD Pills Over CBD Oil?
While both CBD pills and oil are great, some might prefer pills because they’re easy to take on the go, you know exactly how much you’re consuming with each capsule, and they’re flavorless! CBD oil drops can sometimes be inconsistent with dosing and have an earthy flavor that may turn some people off!
Do CBD Capsules Expire?
Yes, CBD capsules can expire. Storing your bottle of capsules in cool, dark locations might slightly prolong its shelf life, but don’t let your capsules sit for too long in general!
What is the Average Shelf-Life of CBD Capsules?
The average shelf life for most CBD products, including capsules, is about 12-24 months. After 24 months, the CBD will begin to lose effectiveness and not provide the same benefits as a fresh bottle. Plan to finish your bottle, so you can keep enjoying fresh ones!
