1. What is the difference between CBD capsules and CBD oil?
CBD oil is a substance derived from the cannabis sativa or hemp plant. The plant is put through an extraction process that produces a CBD extract which can be full spectrum. This extract is then added to a carrier oil which allows it to be diluted for strength and application purposes. The primary differences between CBD oils and CBD capsules are the method of delivery and bioavailability.
When CBD is delivered through a dropper under the tongue (sublingually), it can be difficult to establish the dose of CBD delivered. Placing CBD oil under the tongue may have a lower bioavailability when compared to other CBD products.
