CBD Oil or CBD Capsule: Which Is Better?


Our aim of writing this article is to analyze the differences between CBD oil and CBD capsules. We do not seek to downplay any of these CBD products, nor recommend the best one to use or buy.


CBD Oil vs. CBD Capsules


CBD oil is extracted from the hemp plant using the process of CO2 extraction. The extracted material or ingredients are then mixed with hemp seed oil or coconut oil. As a result, we have oil fully packed with natural cannabinoids.


Production process


In contrast, CBD capsules contain suspended CBD material. The production process is similar to that of the CBD oil, but in case of CBD capsules, cannabinoids from the hemp plant are suspended inside the gel capsule. However, the method of usage or consumption is different.


CBD Oil vs. CBD Capsules: Which is best in terms of convenience?


Both CBD oils and CBD capsules are convenient in their unique characteristics. Both of them take a short time to administer.

How to take CBD oil?
According to expert opinion, when you take CBD oil, you have to hold it under your tongue for about 2 minutes, which is not the case with CBD capsules.

For CBD capsules, all you have to do is place the capsules on the tip of your tongue and swallow it with water.




Another factor to consider is the “dosage” of these two CBD products. Experts argue that the dosage for both CBD oil and CBD capsules is more or less the same.  CBD oil comes in a spray bottle or dropper. Most people use droppers. The dropper or spray bottle contains a small amount of CBD per drop or spray – which is marked on the label. There can be a risk of overdosage if the tеrms оf dоsagе printеd оn thе product labеl is not followed (measured) properly. 

So, it is easy for you to calculate how much CBD oil you need to consume or what is the right amount of CBD per spray or drop.

On the other hand, the dose of CBD capsules is premeasured – for instance, a capsule contains a specific amount of CBD. Therefore, when it comes to dosage, both CBD oil and capsules have pretty much the same convenience.


Stay Safе Whеn Buying CBD


Imaginе buying a CBD prоduct оnly tо find оut thеrе is actually nоt a singlе drоp оf CBD insidе оf it – Impоssiblе?

A rеcеnt blind study in thе Unitеd Kingdоm thе wоrld largеst CBD-markеt fоund that 38% оf thе prоducts had lеss than 50% оf thе advеrtisеd CBD cоntеnt including оnе high-strееt prоduct which had 0% CBD cоntеnt.




CBD Oil vs. CBD Capsules. We can’t really say which one is better and we are in no position to establish that, you ask why? – because each has its own pros and cons. It all depends on the consumer’s circumstances (needs, requirements, conditions etc).

What is good for consumer A might be uncomfortable for consumer B. It’s your own discretion to choose the one that best suits your need and/or requirements.
