CBD Tinctures or Softgels - Which is Right for You?

CBD tinctures and CBD soft gelsCBD tinctures and CBD softgels are both very popular ways to use CBD. Whichever way you prefer is completely up to you based on your needs and style.

Although we can’t make the decision for you, we can surely give you a few facts and let you choose for yourself.

One of the most beautiful things about CBD is that you have so many choices when it comes to effective ways to ingest it.  

Here are some of the basics:

  • CBD Tinctures are in liquid form
  • CBD Softgels are caplets, similar to pills
  • CBD tinctures are best if used sublingually
  • CBD Softgels are swallowed 

When we compare the two side-by-side to see which is better it all comes down to the opinion of the consumer. Because our bodies have what is known as the endocannabinoid system, cannabinoids can work naturally within us.

The endocannabinoid system is a network within us that helps to keep our basic functions in balance. When we ingest CBD it works with our own natural system to send signals to parts of our bodies in need.  What CBD studies have shown, through daily usage, is to have an impact on improving the following conditions in humans:

  • Body temperature
  • Heart rate
  • Digestion
  • Stress
  • Discomfort

CBD tinctures are made in a liquid form. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant by way of alcohol or ethanol then stored and suspended in the liquid. With CBD softgels, the CBD is encapsulated in a small soft gel that is swallowed like a vitamin pill. The softgel is designed to not break open or pop when you swallow it. The tincture, on the other hand, is designed to be put under the tongue in drops.

CBD Tincture Doses vs CBD Softgel Doses

One of the largest advantages a tincture may have over a soft gel is when it comes to dosage and bioavailability. A tincture comes in liquid form and the person administering the drops can put as many or as few as they desire. A soft gel has a preset dose already within the capsule. Because the drops go directly under the tongue with a tincture, the CBD may enter the bloodstream faster than a soft gel. Since it does not have to go through the stomach and the digestive process the availability of CBD in the body can be better than that of a softgel that has to be swallowed first. Although a soft gel is very convenient and has no taste, a tincture is more versatile when it comes to putting it to use.
