CBD capsules are a food supplement and cosmetic tool that is rapidly becoming popular all over the world, which is adored by many: from sports enthusiasts to mothers raising small children. Primarily spread in the west, these hemp products are successfully making their way in Lithuania as well. If you haven't had time to convince yourself of the benefits of CBD capsules, we invite you to learn more about this food supplement and cosmetic product. How do they work and why are they so effective?
Note: This and other articles on Hemp's blog are for informational purposes only. According to the directive of the European Commission, cannabidiol is classified as a 'new food', therefore CBD products should not be used as a food supplement in Lithuania.
CBD Compound - Not a Hallucinogen
CBD capsules are filled with highly valuable and effective CBD extract, which is obtained from various fibrous parts of the hemp plant, including stems, flowers and leaves. It is still sometimes mistakenly believed that this component has psychoactive properties. This is a myth. CBD, or cannabidiol, is not a recreational or medical hallucinogen. CBD capsules won't get you high, but you'll definitely feel better.
What are the special benefits of CBD capsules?
CBD is a truly valuable elixir for health. It is a natural hemp extract, the benefits of which are supported by numerous scientific studies conducted in the United States and elsewhere. Cannabidiol capsules have been successfully proven to combat various health problems:
- CBD oil can improve the quality and duration of sleep.
- The benefits of taking a CBD capsule regularly have been found to include increased concentration, focus and performance.
- This substance is effective for depression or anxiety disorders.
- Cannabidiol helps fight post-traumatic stress syndrome.
- One of the main benefits of a CBD capsule: relieves symptoms in autoimmune, inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases (eg. with multiple sclerosis, parkinson's disease, etc.).
- Helps manage pain in recovery from injuries, arthritis and other chronic conditions.
- CBD extract is useful for patients with oncological diseases. What's more, some scientists assume that CBD can slow or even stop the growth of cancer cells.
Cannabidiol-containing products are relevant even if you do not complain about your health. The benefits of a high-quality CBD capsule are revealed through balanced body functions, improved digestion, and increased endurance. CBD helps to recover faster after sports training, so it is also safe to use for preventive purposes. By the way, it is also interesting that CBD is suitable for nurturing the health of pets. In animals, this component works in a similar way to humans: cannabidiol can help your cat or dog feel calmer, relax in a stressful situation, reduce pain and inflammatory processes.

Benefits of CBD capsules for beauty
As mentioned, cannabis supplements are effective because of their anti-inflammatory properties. This is relevant for aesthetics: for example, when suffering from various inflammatory/infectious skin diseases, such as eczema, acne, various rashes. The CBD contained in the capsules soothes the skin, reduces redness and rashes.
CBD is a versatile ingredient that has a wide range of effects, making it useful for acne breakouts. This product reduces the excessive amount of sebum, or sebum, produced by the skin. This is one of the main causes of acne.
CBD capsules also help fight the signs of aging. Cannabidiol is richly saturated with powerful antioxidants, so it revives and nourishes the skin of the face, evens out its tone, leads to greater skin elasticity and even reduces fine lines.
CBD in capsules has a positive effect not only on the skin. This compound contains many valuable proteins, vitamins and minerals that benefit the condition of the hair: it can stimulate hair growth, moisturize and nourish the hair, make it stronger, thicker and healthier, and prevent hair loss.
What else is worth knowing about the benefits of CBD capsules?
Doctors and scientists point out that cannabis supplements (capsules and oil) are recommended to be taken with food. In this case, the effectiveness and absorption of the extract increases compared to their consumption on an empty stomach.
It is also worth noting that you can find several different types of CBD capsules on the market with different labeling. If you choose CBD isolate capsules, you will be consuming one type of cannabinoid, namely CBD. Meanwhile, in capsules whose packaging is marked as "full spectrum" (eng. full spectrum), contains many other beneficial cannabinoid species such as CBC, CBN, CBG and many others, which when working together create a so-called "synergy effect" and increase the effectiveness of CBD.
Another important aspect - if you are trying the supplement for the first time, it is advisable to choose medium strength CBD oil (15%) or CBD capsules of the appropriate strength (1500mg).
Dilemma: CBD capsules or oil?
Health and beauty CBD capsules are not the only choice for hemp cosmetics and supplements. Another effective alternative is CBD oil. Practice shows that many people who want to try the benefits of cannabidiol for the first time face a dilemma: which option to choose - capsules or oil.
There is no single correct answer here, so it is worth comparing both of these products:
|CBD Capsules||CBD Oil|
|It is easy to use because it is convenient to dose: no need to count drops. If you are preparing for a short trip, you can put several capsules compactly right in your backpack.||When using the oil, it is possible to adjust
the dosage by dropping one drop at a time and get a dose of CBD that is useful for you.
|The capsules are tasteless, making them easy to incorporate into your daily vitamin or supplement regimen. You just need to drink them with a glass of water, without any discomfort.||CBD oil is more convenient for pets: you can drop it in water or on food.|
|With capsules, less CBD
dosage flexibility: the amount of CBD (mg) in each capsule is the same.
|When using the oil, it is necessary to carefully measure the doses, count the drops of the supplement/cosmetics. Also, CBD oil is less convenient when traveling: you have to carry the whole bottle with you.|
|CBD capsules are not recommended
for pets: better to choose other alternatives.
|The oil is applied to the skin as a cosmetic, and in other countries people use it as a supplement by dropping it under the tongue. If you're a picky eater, oils may be more difficult to incorporate into your diet.|
