If you’re looking for a no-fuss way to add CBD into your routine, look no further than CBD gel capsules. Gel capsules are the epitome of convenience—they’re easy to pack and store, they have virtually zero taste and there are plenty of options when it comes to the types of CBD that you have to choose from. Let’s take a look at how CBD capsules work and dive into some tips on how and when to take them.
As soon as you take a gel capsule the digestive system starts to break down its outer contents and absorb the capsule’s ingredients. Once digested, CBD begins to interact with your endocannabinoid system (where the magic happens). If you’re interested in doing a deeper dive into the endocannabinoid system check out this article.
At Social CBD, we’ve combined pure CBD extract with a variety of herbs and botanicals, allowing you to choose the effect that you’re after. From Valerian root (known for its ability to quiet the mind) or turmeric (praised for its anti-inflammatory properties) or Yerba Mate for that added boost of energy … there is truly something for everyone.
CBD capsules are welcomed by so many CBD proponents because of their fast and steady absorption, convenience for storing and carrying, and flexibility in how and when the capsules can be taken. Another bonus is that gel capsules come in extended release formulas allowing for slow and steady effects throughout the day. Extended Release CBD Gel Capsules are a great option for those with jam packed calendars or those of us who are a bit more forgetful.
Be sure to read the directions on the product label, but as a general rule, standard gel capsules can be taken as needed throughout the day. A serving is usually one gel capsule at a time and the fact that the dosage is premeasured means that you don’t have to put much thought into it.
If you are taking extended-release gel capsules, you will probably want to take a serving less frequently. The Social CBD extended-release capsules are designed to allow a slow release over a 12-hour period, so many users opt to take one in a 24-hour period, or two if they use CBD as both a waking-hours aid as well as a sleep aid.
If you look at the history of pills, you’ll notice an ongoing effort to curb the bitter taste of medicine. During medieval times, for example, many medicines were rolled in spices and pastes to help them taste better. At times, medication was even coated in silver, which proved useless as silver passed straight through the digestive system.
All is to say, we’ve come a long way. Gel capsules are virtually tasteless, so you don’t have to endure the nasty taste of medicine like in the days of yore. Gel capsules are simple and effective and a welcome alternative for those looking for something simple and effective.
The Social CBD gel capsules have been formulated in four varieties: Balance, Recover, Boost and Rest. If you’re not sure where to start, you can dip into the water with one of our Boost varieties designed to elevate your energy. Yerba mate and moringa work together with CBD in this variety to bring you the vitamins needed to have an energetic and optimistic day. On the opposite end of the benefit spectrum is our Rest variety formulated with passionflower, valerian root and CBD to help you calm down and get that much needed rest after an exhausting day.
All of our gel capsules are soy-free and sugar-free, giving you the purest experience possible when introducing CBD to your life.
