WHAT ARE CBD CAPSULES?
CBD capsules are a type of supplement that contains full-spectrum, high-quality cannabidiol oil in a specific and reliable concentration. They are odourless, tasteless, and incredibly discreet. Each capsule also has exactly the same amount of CBD—a natural compound extracted from hemp.
Isolated using sophisticated extraction methods, high-quality CBD is expertly blended with carrier oils such as olive oil and hemp oil to improve absorption. CBD capsules from Cibdol allow you to take accurate doses of CBD whenever needed and are available in a range of concentrations.
HOW DO CBD CAPSULES WORK?
CBD capsules contain the same quality CBD oil you know and love but come in capsule form, offering several unique advantages. You need to dose regularly on or under the tongue with CBD oil. This approach isn’t always convenient—especially if you’re at work or a social event.
By encapsulating our golden-grade CBD oil formula, we’ve simplified your wellness routine, giving you easy access to the benefits of CBD and other natural cannabinoids. When you take a capsule, our full spectrum CBD formula travels through your digestive system, before entering the liver, and then your bloodstream.
It’s from the bloodstream that CBD travels around the body, influencing a regulatory network called the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
WHAT EFFECT CAN CBD CAPSULES HAVE?
CBD’s vast influence stems from its mediation of our endocannabinoid system (ECS). Comprised mainly of cannabinoid receptors, the ECS exists to regulate and monitor key biological processes. You’ll find CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in your immune, digestive and central nervous systems.
The endocannabinoid system’s main purpose is maintaining balance. It does this using receptors that activate whenever they detect certain endocannabinoids or cannabinoids.
Endocannabinoids already exist inside the body, but by consuming external sources of cannabinoids, it may be possible to up or down-regulate certain functions. This is where a daily dose of CBD comes in. CBD acts as a general manager of the ECS, helping it run more efficiently and bolstering well-being.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CBD CAPSULES?
Researchers believe the interaction between CBD and the ECS may contribute to the treatment of dozens of wellness conditions. The conditions under review are extensive, but CBD and other natural compounds show the potential to impact several areas of mental and physical well-being.
As for how it will benefit you, that depends on your current lifestyle and wellness routine, as CBD and other cannabinoids work alongside your body’s existing systems.
If you already have a healthy lifestyle and a varied and balanced diet, the cannabinoids can help you stay on track, supporting that all-important state of balance. When these mental and physical health areas are balanced, we think and feel at our best.
DO CBD CAPSULES HAVE SIDE EFFECTS?
The World Health Organisation (WHO) performed an **extensive review of CBD in 2018 and found the following:
**extensive review of CBD - https://www.who.int/medicines/access/controlled-substances/CannabidiolCriticalReview.pdf
• “CBD is generally well-tolerated with a good safety profile. Reported adverse effects may be the result of drug-drug interactions.”
• “To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
ARE CBD CAPSULES ADDICTIVE?
As you can see, the research appears supportive of CBD, with the only side effects recorded being mild and infrequent. The WHO also found that “CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential”. However, everyone is different, so it’s important to take CBD supplements at your own pace and cease use if you experience any unwanted side effects.
Please note that capsules from Cibdol are not intended to replace any form of medicine. As part of a balanced approach to well-being, you can use CBD products as food supplements.
HOW LONG DO CBD CAPSULES TAKE TO WORK?
When you consume CBD oil capsules, they have to travel through your digestive system, before they can enter the liver for distribution around the body via the bloodstream. While this means that the effects of CBD start slower, they do last longer (usually several hours) than other administration methods.
• You should start to feel the effects of a CBD capsule after approximately 40–60 minutes.
HOW DO YOU USE CBD CAPSULES?
Taking CBD capsules couldn’t be easier. The active ingredients are already contained within softgel capsules, making them tasteless, odourless and easy to consume. Simply take one capsule up to three times a day, or as needed.
For best results, we recommend you take CBD with meals or shortly after as this improves the absorption of active ingredients. The frequency of consumption will vary according to the concentration of the CBD capsules and your individual circumstances.
ARE CBD CAPSULES SUITABLE FOR YOU?
CBD capsules are a versatile supplement suitable for most people. However, you should adjust the dose and concentration of CBD according to your individual needs. Potential side effects of CBD appear mild, but the compound may interfere with enzymes in the liver (cytochrome P450).
DO CBD CAPSULES INTERACT WITH MEDICATIONS?
If you are currently taking or planning to take prescription medication, please seek advice from your doctor or physician before including CBD capsules in your daily routine. The compound’s interaction with P450 in the liver, which means it may upset the balance of some prescription medications.
Due to ongoing research, CBD capsules also are not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
WHAT ARE THE BEST CBD CAPSULES?
Although CBD has a long list of generalised effects, everyone’s experience is unique. We recommend that first-time users of CBD start with low concentration CBD capsules taken once or twice a day until they become accustomed to the effects.
• Please be aware it can take up to 1–2 weeks to get familiar with the results of CBD.
A low dose of CBD oil capsules starts at 5% (500mg), allowing for a gentle introduction to the compound’s influence. Maximum strength options include 30% (3000mg) and 40% (4000mg) capsules, with various options in-between.
Cibdol CBD capsules use olive oil, alongside a full-spectrum CBD extract. The ideal concentration and CBD dosage will depend entirely on your circumstances. If you are unsure which product is best, we recommend speaking to a doctor or physician before taking CBD.
CAN YOU COMBINE CBD CAPSULES AND CBD OIL?
Both our capsule and oil products contain the same pure CBD oil. As such, there are no issues combining two product types to find a wellness routine that suits you. However, to make sure you’re dosing CBD correctly, it’s best to track the total milligrams across both products (per day).
If you would typically consume 30mg a day of CBD capsules, but want to alternate with CBD oil, keep the 30mg total in mind. You’ll need to decrease the total capsules to accommodate the extra CBD oil drops.
You can find more information on how many milligrams of CBD per capsule or drop on the CBD product label.
CBD CAPSULES VS GUMMIES
While CBD gummies may seem very similar, they usually contain additional ingredients which may not be suitable in combination with other food products or for certain CBD users.
You can also consider taking capsules alongside, CBD balm, CBD tablets, CBD supplements and several other CBD products. Regardless of the product type you choose, the key is to keep track of your daily CBD intake.
WHEN DO CBD CAPSULES EXPIRE?
The cannabinoids inside our golden-grade CBD formula are susceptible to heat, sunlight, and air exposure. You still need to ensure the CBD bottle is kept in a cool, dry and dark place. Every capsule bottle includes a printed expiry date on the label and a corresponding batch number.
WHAT ARE FULL-SPECTRUM CBD CAPSULES?
Full-spectrum CBD products take advantage of a unique phenomenon called the entourage effects. When CBD works alongside several other essential cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids (all-natural compounds from the hemp plant) the respective influence on the mind and body is enhanced.
Cibdol’s full-spectrum formula contains CBD and other dominant cannabinoids such as:
Cibdol uses a full-spectrum CBD formula because preclinical studies suggest it may have a range of wellness benefits. However, there are other variations, such as broad-spectrum CBD capsules, broad-spectrum oil, and CBD isolate.
WHICH IS BETTER: BROAD-SPECTRUM OR FULL-SPECTRUM?
Each CBD formula offers unique advantages and disadvantages. It’s important to balance the types of CBD with your own varied diet and existing wellness routine to find the most suitable option.
CBD isolate, for example, is pure CBD with no other additional compounds, but it may not be as effective in large doses. In contrast, broad-spectrum CBD may contain select cannabinoids or trace amounts of terpenes.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD AND THC?
THC is known for creating a high and is found in large concentrations inside cannabis plants.
Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychotropic (meaning it won’t get you high) and is typically extracted from hemp plants.
All Cibdol CBD products are free from THC and created exclusively from hemp plants, rather than the cannabis plant. If a manufacturer uses cannabis plant material, then the product is most likely a cannabis oil and not suitable for daily consumption.
WHY IS HEMP USED TO MAKE CBD CAPSULES?
Naturally grown hemp is not only an excellent source of CBD, but it’s an important crop in industries such as textiles, construction, and animal feed.
It’s also important not to confuse high-quality CBD oil with hemp seed oil, despite both coming from the hemp plant. Hemp seed oil is made by cold-pressing hemp seeds, and does not contain cannabinoids.
