When it comes to cannabidiol, even though it’s everywhere, people still have tons of questions about it. From understanding the differences between hemp-derived and marijuana-derived CBD oil to figuring out how long does it take to work, we’re here to bring you answers. Today, let’s look at the differences between CBD oil tinctures and CBD oil capsules.

CBD Oil Tinctures or CBD Oil Capsules

Although both are forms of CBD oil, the way they interact with our body makes all the difference. CBD oil or CBD tinctures are cannabinoid extracts suspended in an inert oil, sometimes coconut oil or MCT oil. Capsules are made similarly to tinctures, but they’re suspended in a gel capsule. In the end, the main difference lies in what you use cannabidiol for.

Differences Between Tinctures and Capsules

Besides the evident administration form differences, some factors do make these two different from each other. Let’s look at some of the main differences between CBD tinctures and capsules.

Serving Size

Because CBD tinctures come with a dropper, you can have more control over your dosage. However, if the packaged doesn’t specify the amount of CBD content per dropper, figuring out the right dose can be a challenge.

Most CBD tinctures contain 20mg of CBD per dropper, while CBD capsules contain anywhere between 10mg to 50mg of CBD per pill.

Taste

Because both consumption methods include tasting it, people do have a preference. CBD capsules are taste-free, which is best for those who dislike the grassy taste of cannabidiol. However, you’re still swallowing a pill, so if you don’t feel comfortable with this, it might not be the right choice.

On the other hand, CBD tinctures without flavoring have a natural grassy taste to them, which might not be everyone’s favorite flavor. However, many CBD manufacturers add flavoring, such as vanilla or mint, to make these more enjoyable.

How to Choose the Right One

In the end, choosing between tinctures and capsules is up to personal preference. These include how you want to ingest CBD, how long you want it to take to kick-in, how long would you like its effects to last. All of these are questions you need to ask yourself before choosing the right CBD oil for you. As always, make sure to consult with your doctor before incorporating new substances into your diet and nutritional regimen.
