There’s a Lot to Learn About CBD Capsules and Softgels

When you learn about CBD Capsules, you’ll discover they have one significant advantage over other varieties of orally consumed CBD products. They have consistent dosing, meaning you will get the same amount of CBD every time you take one. With other CBD products, such as tinctures, it can be difficult to ensure you are getting an exact, identical dose every time.

CBD Capsules and Gelcaps have a neutral taste. They are portable and travel friendly, so it’s easy to see why CBD capsules are often a best-selling product.

CBD capsules also do not require additional ingredients. Tinctures and gummies, for example, often require a complicated list of ingredients to get their taste and shelf life just right. CBD capsules themselves don’t have a taste, so we use that opportunity to provide the simplest product possible: pure hemp CBD oil blended with MCT oil in a vegan capsule shell. Nothing more, nothing less.

What you get is a safe, healthy product with no additives or fillers, and just a few top-shelf ingredients.

Types of CBD Capsules

Technically speaking, traditional capsules are made of two separate shells that slide into each other and contain a solid blend of herbs or powders. Our CBD Capsules – Softgels – are vegan gel capsules that are one solid piece with a seam, as opposed to two separate shells. When it comes to CBD, softgels are preferable to traditional capsules because they contain dosed hemp and MCT oils only. And, they come in an easy-to-swallow, consistent form. Common capsules – like you might get from a pharmacy or health food store – instead contain raw herbs with lower bioavailability.

Vegetarian Softgel Capsules vs Gelatin Softgel Capsules

When you learn about CBD Capsules and softgels, you’ll find that many types of capsules exist for pharmaceuticals and supplements. Capsules have traditionally been made with bovine gelatin which comes from animal byproducts and is the cheapest material available. Specifically, most capsules contain collagen – a protein from the connective tissues of cattle. While its low cost is beneficial for manufacturers, gelatin capsules do not hold liquids (CBD oil, for example) as well as other materials and are often avoided due to various religious and dietary restrictions.

In recent years, vegetarian and vegan CBD capsule and softgel options have emerged. Vegan capsules are made from cellulose – a plant fiber which is safe to ingest – and contain no animal bypriducts. These capsules are ideal for making CBD softgels. They are durable, shelf-stable, and accessible to a growing number of CBD manufacturers. At Beyond Botanicals, all of our CBD Capsules are Softgels – vegan and 100% natural. This means that whether you have dietary, ethical or religious restrictions on animal products, our CBD Gel Capsules will be safe and appropriate for you. Cellulose softgels also have a longer shelf-life, which means you’ll have fresher CBD available for longer period of time.

How Are CBD Capsules Made?

By manufacturing our own CBD products from raw hemp extract, we ensure quality and purity from seed to shelf.

CBD Gel Capsules are made by taking a pre-blended mix of oils and sealing them into a cellulose shell. This process, called encapsulation, ensures that each softgel has an airtight seal where no liquid can leak out. Modern machinery keeps this seam smooth and barely visible, which means the softgels will always be easy to swallow and be consistent from batch to batch. This durability also leads to a relatively long shelf life, with stability across a wide range of storage conditions.

How Much CBD is in CBD Capsules?

Our CBD Capsules are 3rd-party lab tested to ensure potency and purity. Learn about CBD Capsules and Softgels to ensure you’re buying from a reputable source.

CBD softgel capsules can be made using either of the most common CBD materials – Full Spectrum CBD oil which can contain a maximum of 0.3% THC, or THC-Free oils which contain 0%. Common dosages for CBD capsules are 25mg and 50mg, although you may find 75 or 100mg CBD capsules. One of the primary benefits of CBD capsules is their constant and consistent dosing, which can be especially important for those taking CBD under a doctor’s recommendation.
