Introduction to CBD SoftgelsDr. Jim Collins
CBD comes in many forms including oils, powders, and softgels. For those who don’t enjoy the taste of hemp, softgels may be the right product for them. CBD softgels offer simplicity and convenience and are labeled with the amount of CBD that is contained in each softgel. Some brands offer softgels ranging between 10mg to 100mg per gel. Besides CBD, most formulas contain other cannabinoids like CBG and CBN, as well as terpenes and fatty acids.
Most softgels are water-soluble, meaning they absorb better in the body making them more bioavailable. Since our bodies are mainly water, softgels offer a better way to gain the health benefits of CBD. And they can be taken regularly just like a daily vitamin. Some individuals start by taking a lower milligram size, such as one 25mg softgel per day for about a week. They then monitor how they feel on 25mg per day and decide whether to continue taking that milligram size or potentially taking a higher milligram size for better results.
Some individuals take CBD softgels as a natural supplement for the general prevention of age-related conditions which cause aches and pains, sleep problems, or mood-related issues. Others use them for specific physical or emotional health problems like:
- Arthritic Pain and Discomfort
- Muscular Pain and Discomfort
If you aren’t crazy about the green hempy taste of CBD oils, softgels might be a good alternative to getting the right amount of CBD in your daily supplement routine.
