Some people gravitate toward CBD oil capsules because they are just so easy to incorporate into a wellness routine. They are a great addition to a supplement routine—take them with your daily multivitamin—to help support the body's endocannabinoid system.
As kids return to school (at home or in person) and offices reopen this season, a daily CBD oil capsule can help maintain your cool, among other things. Here, we talk more about CBD soft gels, including what they are, how to take them, their benefits and more.
Why Is a CBD Oil Softgel Superior to Other Capsule Forms?
A softgel consists of a gelatin-based shell surrounding the liquid fill. Softgels are very easy to swallow because they are flexible, not hard. "Because they are completely sealed and air-tight, mintedLeaf CBD Oil Softgels have a superior shelf life compared to other formats. The softgel protects the ingredients from oxidation and product degradation. It has a long shelf life," says Nicole Butera, product development manager at MMG Consumer Brands. "As with hard capsules, the consumer will not taste the ingredient, which is another bonus of softgels."
What's the Best Way to Take a CBD Oil Softgel?
Take the softgel with food, as oil absorbs better when taken with foods containing fat, Butera recommends. Also, if you have a sensitive stomach, take it with food—just like any supplement. You can also try taking the product at different times of the day and see which routine makes you feel the best or works with your schedule.
How are mintedLeaf CBD Oil Softgels Unique?
Our full-spectrum CBD oil softgels provide a convenient way to get your daily serving of CBD while ensuring that your dosage remains absolutely consistent every time. Each capsule contains 25 mg of CBD along with other naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes.
"This combination gives you a powerful 'entourage effect' that encourages your body to regain its natural balance due to the unique full-spectrum blend," says Butera. She explains, "Our hemp-derived CBD comes from 100% natural, USA-grown hemp using organic practices. Each batch is 3rd party tested to ensure CBD potency and to ensure it does not contain toxic pesticides and heavy metals."
Are CBD Oil Capsules or Tinctures Right for Me?
You will get the beneficial effects of CBD regardless of which option, softgels or CBD oil tinctures, you choose. One idea is to create your own custom regimen and alternate between softgels and tinctures. "One day, it may be more convenient to throw your softgels in your bag to take while you're on the go. Another day, when you're sitting at your desk working, you can grab your tincture for a quick pick me up," Butera says. Use whichever option you like more, or use both, and pay attention to your body to see which dosage works best for you.
