One thing for sure about CBD is that it is becoming a very hot commodity for people from all walks of life all around the world. From CBD softgels to CBD tinctures and everything in between, there are many forms and styles of CBD products to choose from. When it comes to softgels and gummies, there might be a bit of a clash between who likes what between the two. If you put them together and compare them to each other, it may be easier for you to choose which one is best for you. Let’s see if we can clear the concept up for you.
What is CBD?
If you are wondering what all of the CBD rage is about, but do not know anything about what CBD is and how it can be beneficial for you, it is time to learn a little bit.
CBD is a cannabinoid that is present in the cannabis plant. In the United States, it is legal to grow industrial hemp in order to extract the hemp oil from the plant so that manufacturers can create CBD products that people can use. Unlike the cannabinoid THC, CBD does not cause any psychoactive effects and does not directly attach itself to the endocannabinoid receptors that communicate directly with the brain.
Cannabinoids from the plants from the cannabis genus have the ability to interact with the human nervous system unlike any other type of compounds that are on the planet. This is why there is so much controversy behind the use of cannabinoid products. CBD, THC, CBN, CBD, and the rest of the cannabinoids have the unique ability to change the way that our brain responds to the things that go on around it. This is what makes scientists scratch their heads.
What Are CBD Softgels?
The concept of CBD softgels has been around for a very long time. Many of the vitamin pills that we take on a daily basis are made out of the same outer encasement as CBD softgels have. The softgels are made out of either animal gelatin or a type of vegan substitute gelatin that easily breaks down in the stomach acids so that they can quickly deliver the results of the CBD that is nestled within the coating.
The great thing about softgels is that they are so easy to carry around and use whenever the person wants to use one. All you have to do is pull out the little pill bottle, pop a couple of the capsules into your palm, depending on how much CBD you want to use, then just pop the gelcaps into your mouth and swallow them down like you would a vitamin pill. It is that easy.
The gelcaps protect the hemp oil that is inside of the capsule so that when you swallow it the oil does not get burnt up inside of your stomach acids before it has a chance to work.
What Are CBD Gummies?
When it comes to CBD gummies, on the other hand, although they are constructed with the same kind of gelatin that the softgels are made from, it is a thicker kind of gel that is infused with CBD.
Gummies are much like gummy worms, or gummy bears, or whatever else kind of gummy candy that you are familiar with. The only difference is that the candy is infused with a measured out amount of CBD or hemp oil extract that contains CBD in order to deliver the wellness effects that CBD has to offer.
Which Is Better?
The type of CBD form that is best for you is mostly a matter of perspective. Whatever kind of vessel that works best for the type of lifestyle that you have is the best one for you.
